DTD Inspiration and a Twist




It's the third Wednesday of the month and that means it's time for the Inspiration Challenge over at Dude Time Doodles. We're not only challenging you to create something using the inspiration photo - but to also make it an easel card! The rules are very simple. Use the inspiration photo as your starting point and create an easel card with it. Then head over to Dude Time Doodles and enter your creation. You're not required to use a Bonibleaux image but it always makes us happy when you do. It MUST be a masculine themed card as it's all about the Dudes! Use the Inlinkz at Dude Time Doodles and submit your creation. You have one week to link up your project and the Top Blog Winner and Top Three will be posted next week. So head on over to Dude Time Doodles and check it out today!


Since St. Patrick's day is right around the corner (like tomorrow!) I decided to use this cute little image from Boni's STORE. His name is Shamus and isn't he just the happiest little fellow you've seen today! I colored him with Copics and framed him in a Nestie circle. On the inside I used the piece of ribbon and bow to prop up the card and added a few "gold coins".


Be sure and check out Dude Time Doodles and don't forget to submit your creation.


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

Such happy colours and yes, Shamus is the happiest guy I have seen today for sure. Specially as hubby is unwell again. Hopefully he will be better soon.

I love the paper and the ribbon. The gold coins make it look so rich. Can I have them, please? Lol!
