Howard Ho Ho Zzzz



The Dude Time Doodles Inspiration Challenge this week is all about the Holidays.


Howard Ho Ho Zzzz is doing the honors today, but he's all tired out after eating a huge meal.  He's wearing his favorite Christmas tee shirt (paper pieced from digi papers from Create with TLC) and is asleep on the couch (also paper pieced with papers from Basic Grey).  The rest of the image is colored with Copic markers and Lifestyle Crafts (nesting scalloped ovals) die was used to cut the image.  Diamond Dust covers the furry parts of the Santa hat for added sparkle.

This card is also an interactive card - meaning the recipient does more than just open the card.  In this case, they will need to pull out the tag to read the sentiment.  The sentiment is also from Create with TLC and is cut out with a Spellbinders die.  As an added bonus, the sentiment tag becomes a gift tag (I stamped "To:  From:" on the back side).  Pretty cool, huh?!

Head on over to the DTD challenge blog and upload your favorite holiday creation (and remember, it's got to be for a dude).  Sadly, this is our last challenge for Dude Time Doodles, so be sure to leave some love for the rest of the team.  DTD will be back one last time next week with our final New Release Blog Hop with four new images that you won't want to miss.

Hope everyone in the US has a Happy Thanksgiving tomorrow.

Copics used: E50, E51, E53    BV20, BV23    R14, R24, R39    B91, B95    E30, E31    W7, W9    E37    E89, E79    T1, T3    B34, B37, B39

Fantastic! I love the paper pieced shirt with Christmas trees. I wonder does somebody really wears shirt like this :) It is so cool on your card though. Brilliant idea. And couch looks like a real thing with this pattern.

GREAT card, Anne. The font in the tag sentiment is gorgeous! Your coloring is amazing, and it sure does resemble our home after holiday celebrations. A Happy Thanksgiving to you, Anne. I appreciate all your hard work, and your sweet visits to my blog.
