Special Post For DTD

This is such a very special post for me today!  Several weeks ago, I was contacted by the Dude Time Doodles design team asking if I'd like to use one of their new release images and post a card for their blog today.  Of course I jumped at the chance.  Some of you may remember that I was on the Dude Time Doodles design team for quite a long time - and dearly loved each and every minute of it!  (I miss all you ladies (and gent, Kevin) but you know I'm never too far away).  So, a big "thank you" to Boni, Tammy, Anne, and all the rest of the Dude Time Doodles design team for asking me........such an honor!

I'm going to show you my card - inside and out - but whatever you do, please DO NOT scroll down to the inside until I can explain a little bit........

This is a new release image you can find in the DTD store called The Great Punkin.  I'm not going to go into all the details on this card as it's self explanatory as you can see - but I will tell you about the sentiment.......

I got this cute image colored up and the design for the card all laid out and then tried to come up with a sentiment.    Sometimes I have a pretty weird sense of humor (well, probably ALL the time) and all I could see after looking at this image was that all the pumpkins were resting peacefully in a pumpkin patch and just when the big one started to get himself settled in, he sat on a WHOOPIE CUSHION!!!  LOL!  That's where the mind started to get a little strange........so........here you go..............




Since not everyone may know what a Whoopie Cushion is, I just got down to the basic language here!



Be SURE and stop by the Dude Time Doodles blog today and see some wonderful creations and then check out all the fun images and new releases Boni has in the store - you'll fall in love with them just as I did.  Thank you again ladies (and Kevin) for the new release image and having my card on your blog today!

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

You know I'm laughing myself silly, Lynn. This is one of the reasons I miss the DTD team more than any other. We had such fun exercising our weird senses of humor together! So glad we got to post together again, my friend. :-D Hugs.

Bahahaha! I love it! How perfect would that be for a young boy (oh, who am I kidding, *I* would laugh right out loud! I did!)

A great fun card - love the wording LOL!!! Love what you have done with the new DTD image!!

Donna Hanley said...

Lynn, Your sentiment is perfect for this little "jumping pumpkin". Great papers and coloring as usual from you. The image looks great sitting on an angle like you have it. Your little inside pumpkin is adorable as well. I do love your sense of humor and it goes along so well with DTD images. Yes I remember the Whoopie Cushion very well. Once when taking a long trip with some relatives the driver, just about 15 minutes into the trip, slipped the cushion under himself without anyone noticing and activated it. His front seat accomplice made it worse by opening the window and teasing him. We all kept thinking "Whew - what a trip this is going to be". My kids were only 6 and 8 at the time and they still talk about that to this day. Enjoy your day and congrats on the call from DTD.
