New Stuff At Dude Time


Today is the terribly exciting Dude Time Doodles New Release Blog Hop. There are some great new images available, and the Design Team is showcasing the images with their wonderful creations. My Patriotic card was made with Minute Man Marty. He symbolizes how much of a contribution the average Joe (or Marty in this case - LOL) has made in every group's (countries, peoples, individuals, etc.) quest for rights. I could see him used on a card with comments like "Give me a drum roll please...," "American Band" (with some words from the song), "Dance to your own beat." Fun!!!

Hopefully, you came here from Ruth's wonderful blog and now you should finish off back at Dude Time Doodles just click here. If you didn't come from Ruth's blog, be sure to jump on the hop and visit everyone as you won't want to miss the fun. Leave comments at each stop on the hop as one of us is giving away a prize but we aren't telling which one it is....

Hugz!!!

  1. Fantastic job on Marty. Love your colors and your design. It looks like the Constitution (or is it the Bill of Rights) in the background.

  15. This is neat, Nutzi! The image is colored so well, and the frame you've set him in is soooo patriotic. Great job! (I love Carol's comment above mine - Mel Gibson! LOL)

    Thanks for the nice comment you made about my daughter's monster card. I AM really glad she likes to craft with me. The other DD won't do it. :(

  17. I love how you have created a vintage card...the colours are so perfect!
    Yes, I don't think we always really cherish our freedom, and realise our resposibility to protect it. (I live in South Africa and we had our fair share of fighting for freedom in many ways, even today!)
    Thanks for this lovely inspiration and a fun hop!

Forest Goodies and Other Projects

 Hello Crafty Friends. I just got the Stamperia Forest Paper and Die Cuts in the mail so I had to play with them right away.   I have a combo creation - journal page and card.  On the journal page I used my 6x6 Dina Wakley Journal and laid a base of gesso.  I then used Dina's pastel crayons and some SU! inks and stamps.  Also added in some TH Dress Ink in Vintage Photo since I don't know how to make anything without it  (seriously).   The eagle is a Stamperia Forest die cut and is coated with gesso.  Did a bit of stenciling and distressing to finish the page off.  I am linking this the the **Art*Journal*Journey* September Texture Theme (last day - can't wait to see what October's Theme will be).  The die cut and the little smears add texture to the already very textured page.   I love the blue and green together and was inspired to made a quick card for my Son-in-law who cut down some tree limbs for us the other day.  The paper in the middle is from the Stamperia Forest

A Bit of Tea, Horses, and a Cowboy

 I love when my children follow in my footsteps and beyond (only the cool footsteps, of course).   My daughter, Allie, has developed a love of tea.  She sent me this picture over the weekend of her having tea in her newly remodelled bedroom.   She was drinking Breakfast in Paris tea in one of her favorite thrift store mugs.  This is my ticket to the T-day gathering over at Elizabeth's blog .  To join us, all you have to do is have a drink related post (can be any type of drink).   The neighborhood horses have been gathering in our backyard for some reason. Our horse refuses to come up near our house because the lady who owns all these horses gives her much better treats.  They all jump the fences and visit everyone.  The mule in the picture is actually named after me because I named one of cows after the neighbor (he paid me back - lol). I gave them apples when they came on Sunday, and they have come back every day since - lol.  We had a bit of sadness yesterday when another neighb

Brotherhood Wishes, a Paper Purse, and a Special Mug

Hello friends. No more fun travel or parade pictures - back to every day normal life.  On a positive note, I have been able to fit in some art. Hereis an art journal spread I finished this weekend. I am adding it to Alison's Summer Landscape challenge theme at **Art*Journal*Journey* .   I started the pages in my journal around July 4th after seeing Dina's stripes inspired Mixed Media challenge on Splitcoaststampers.com and got as far as stamping some foliage at the bottom.  I was stuck after that, and I wasn't sure where to go with it next.  A few days later, I was clearing out some things in the craft room and ran across a Thomas Kinkade book I cut up and use in my Bible Journaling.  There was a picture of  the San Francisco Bridge and another of some mountains so I tore them out and added them to my page with Gesso representing some of the beautiful things in America and also Alison's countryside theme.  They did not blend in very well and I needed to alter them to wo
