Go Bucks! for Tuesday Throwdown

Greetings, folks, and happy first day of summer! This is my third week posting as June Guest Designer for the Tuesday Throwdown Challenge. This week's challenge is Masculine Cards, and our sponsor is Dude Time Doodles, a Bonibleaux Designs company.

About Dude Time Doodles

Dude Time Doodles carries all of your crazy "Dude" card needs. We work exclusively with the artists at Bonibleaux Designs to bring you guy images and ideas for those hard to make cards for the "Dudes" in your life. Guys aren't about flowers and fluff. Guys are our heroes, our fighters, our beer chuggers and bug squashers.

Dude Time Doodles and Bonibleaux Designs have paired together to bring you Manly Man cards and gift ideas. We'll throw the gals an occasional froufrou image but we are really all about the "Dudes" here.


Boni of Dude Time Doodles generously supplied each TT DT member with a digital image of our choice. I was drawn to the Youth Football digi stamp (it reminded me of Schoolhouse Rock so much! Maybe the "Interjection" episode??), and Boni threw in this fun coordinating Football digi, too.

I'm originally from Ohio (yup, that makes me a Buckeye). My sister and her family still live in O-H-I-O and are HUGE Ohio State Buckeyes fans. They often have season tickets to OSU football games and try to go to season-ending Bowl games if possible. Yes, Buckeye-mania reigns at their house (the rec room is completely decorated in OSU colors and with tons of OSU memorabilia). So I colored my youth football dude in OSU colors and decided this card would be perfect for either my brother-in-law or 11YO nephew. :)
Thanks for dropping in to take a peek at my masculine card for this week's Tuesday Throwdown. I hope you'll play along this week for a fun prize from Dude Time Doodles!

Until next time,
Emily

I've never heard of this company before, but with all boys you'd better bet I have to go check it out. I love how you used the football for the sentiment, and the field is awesome :)

Great looking card and that background paper looks like it was made for this image. I like how you put the sentiment on the football too.

Fabulous image! Love the football field background. Maybe the card should be framed and become part of the decor in the rec room? :-)

OMGOsh! I LOVE this card, Em! We are HUGE Buckeye fans (I went to Ohio State until my daddy made me come home and transfer to Miami!) Even amidst all of the scandal, I am a true blue fan! O-H-I-O! Go Bucks!

Go Team! What a cool card and I love the football that says dream big. I'm sure football players have many HUGE dreams. Too bad they can't ALL come true.
