A Fishing Lure

It's time for the August Inspiration Challenge at Dude Time Doodles and this month it is all about..........drum roll.........BUTTONS!

All you have to do is create a project for a dude and use buttons - easy, easy! You don't have to use an image from Dude Time Doodles, but we really like it when you do!

This week's sponsor is Pattie's Creations. Pattie has the cutiest images - you so need to check them out. The winner of this challenge will win their choice of two Pattie's Creations images.

I used the Lure 2 image on my gift tag. At .49 cents it is a great deal and you can purchase a more elaborate version of it as well. With a zillion fishermen in my family, this image is perfect for cards and tags. It also works well paired with fishermen images and Dude Time Doodles has several of them (along with fishing poles, worms squiggling in a pail, etc).

I used a piece of the cardboard from the bottom of a frozen pizza (I hate to admit I eat frozen pizzas, but I do) to make my base and added some cast off wire string from my daughter's guitar,some feathers, raffia, some old white and red fun fibers from my stash, SU! baker's twine, a computer generated sentiment, and BUTTONS.

The Dude and Dudettes made some amazingly fun cards for this challenge - some are pretty funny so you should go check them out (click here).

Hope you will dig out some of your buttons and make a card or other project for a Dude too!

Hugz to all!


  1. Great little upcycled tag!! Funny sentiment too :) Sometimes nothing but a piece of pizza will do, regardless of if it's fresh or frozen!!!

  2. You're the creative one, Nancy! A frozen pizza box has been put to good use and didn't end up in the landfill. Good for you. All your embellies and BUTTONS made a very cute project for a dude.

  3. Love that you recycled/repurposed the pizza box! The feathers are a perfect addition to this fun tag and love the pops of red.

  4. Fun tag and so clever! The sentiment is perfect for any fisherman!

  5. Brilliant tag Nancy, I like the lure image, the recycled pizza box ( great idea) and the sentiment.
