Today's the day for Dude Time Doodles Blog Hop to introduce you to the new images that have been created and added to
the already amazing library of images!

If you’ve arrived here from Anne, you’re on the right track. Although, there really is no wrong route, just keep hopping until you’ve seen all the wonderful creations from the FAB Dude/Dudette Design Team.

Now make sure you leave some love 'cause one of us is the MYSTERY HOSTESS! That’s right, one lucky person will win one of the new images just for commenting!

This darlin' image is "Brief Conversations" and is now available for purchase!

I took a manilla colored tag, messed it up with distress inks then searched through my rubber stamps until I located this stamp set "Journalling Fun " by Stampin Up. I used my Copics to color the briefs, added some ribbon to finish it off.

Your next stop is Ruth. This little lady has some amazing talents and remember, after you admire her work leave her some love!

Here is our Blog Hop List, just in case you get lost along the way!

Hip Hip Hooray ...

This birthday card was made for our friend Noah. Noah is a typical boy who loves playing with cars, monster trucks and anything with wheels and a remote control.

I thought this image by Doodle Dragon Studios was perfect. I colored Dudley with my Copics then played around with the paper from Creative Memories called "Disney Pixar Cars". The sentiment is from the Card Chatter - Birthday stamp set by Close to my Heart.

My song inspiration is "Margaritaville" by Jimmy Buffet and I thought Watermelon Margarita by Limited Runs was the perfect digi choice! The digi sentiment is by Graphicat Designs and currently the sentiment is my motto as I am enjoying quite a few on the beach in Mexico!
