Relaxation Is.....

Thank you to everyone who played in our freebie challenge at Dude Time Doodles! Everyone's entries were fabulous, and we appreciate each and every one of them! We hope to see you back again, for our new challenge, today!

Today, at Dude Time Doodles, we have a fun photo inspiration for you, with a twist. We want to see you create a project using the photo below, and make it sporty.

Look at all of those yummy colors in the photo. So many possibilities to create something fabulous, so get busy creating, and join us at Dude Time Doodles for our photo inspiration challenge, with a sporty twist!

The DT has created some fabulous eye candy for your viewing pleasure. Be sure you hop over to Dude Time Doodles and check out the fabulous inspiration and leave the team some love.

Here is my project below, as August Guest Designer for Dude Time Doodles. He's enjoying some booze and football in Florida! LOL

I had so much fun creating this card. I used the Santi Beaches image from Dude Time Doodles. Santi is one summer break and is all dressed for the beach. I've colored him with Promarkers. He's had glitter and sparkle added to him with a clearstar gelly roll pen. I used a mix of three different papers that were all scraps from my stash, as well as a scrap of green sheer ribbon. The sentiment is computer generated. The image and sentiment are mounted with foam mounting tape for dimension.
