Dude Time Doodles December Inspirational Challenge

This week is the Dude Time Doodles December Inspirational Challenge, and we want to see projects featuring, in some way, your Favorite Christmas Movie.

Our Design Team did a super job showcasing how to incorporate Bonibleaux Designs/Dude Time Doodles into this theme, and we can't wait to see what you come up with.

My favorite Christmas movie, no contest, is the original, animated The Grinch Who Stole Christmas. I used a quote from the end of the poem by Dr. Suess [ref.]: "Maybe Christmas ... doesn't come from a store. Maybe Christmas - perhaps - means a little bit more!" And paired it with a funny sentiment on the inside: "Hope that's true, because all you're gettin' is this card!"
On the front, the frame is a digi stamp from Create with TLC, and the rest are from Bonibleaux Designs/Dude Time Doodles. I printed them onto Shrinky Dink plastic, shrunk them in my toaster oven, and then colored the tree & presents with gel pens. You can't see it in the photo, but I stamped a flourish in clear embossing powder on the sentiment piece, after I printed it. The image on the inside is by Marlooney, available from Bonibleaux Designs/Dude Time Doodles. I love that little guy!

  11. Hi there, CG! I stopped by today for a couple of reasons. First, I'd like to invite you to stop by and visit my blog. If you like it, I'd just love for us to follow one another's blogs. I love making new blog friends. Also, I know you're on the Pile It On DT, and since you need to "pile it on" with lots of challenges, I wanted to tell you about a new challenge blog that needs love and attention. It is Word Art Wednesday ( and they have a new challenge every Wednesday. I would be so thrilled to have you pile on an entry over there when you are able. I hope it's OK that I'm telling your DT this information. Again, I would LOVE to have you visit/follow me as well. Thanks so much, and I really hope to see you soon!
