DTD Inspiration Challenge


It's the third Wednesday of the month and that means it's time for the Dude Time Doodles Inspiration Challenge! Head over to Dude Time Doodles and post your project today using the inspiration photo as your starting point. You're not required to use a Bonibleaux design from the Dude Time Doodles STORE but it always makes us happy when you do. It MUST be a masculine themed project - as it's all about the "dudes". Use the InLinkz to submit your project! You have a week to enter the challenge and you could become the Top Blog Winner or one of the Top Three Winners.


This "dude" from Boni's STORE is Ernie Carpenter and he's ready for any woodworking project you may have. He's got his hammer and nails and is ready to go to work. I used several of the colors in the inspiration photo to complete this card. The strip at the bottom is sandpaper and I ran the nails through the twine. If I mail this card I'll have to change those nails so they have a smaller head on them (see how much I know about carpentry)! The sentiment, also from the Dude Time Doodles STORE, is framed using a small piece of sandpaper.



Be sure and check out all the other DT member projects and pop over to Dude Time Doodles and enter you project today!



Thanks for stopping by..........
