Fall Colours with Dude Time Doodles

Hi Folks
Another week has passed by and it's time for the Dude and Dudettes to come out and share their creativity over at Dude Time Doodles.
Before I launch into this weeks challenge I can reveal that I was the mystery host for the blog hop last week.  I have picked a winner and that is DESIRE FOURIE.  Well done Desire, just pop over to Dude Time Doodles to claim your free digi image.
We have a fab new challenge for you this week and it's quite a topical one at the moment  FALL COLOURS.  So just upload your masculine cards using the beautiful colours of Autumn.

At the moment we have loads of dead leaves flying around our garden and getting rid of them is not one of hubby's favourite jobs.  So I decided to make a little garden survival gift bag using this fab image Leif Blower from Dude Time Doodles.  I used some autumnal coloured papers and die cut loads of leaves to embellish.  I attached a gift tag and hand wrote the contents of the gift bag on it.  It certainly made hubby smile when I showed it to him.

For more fab inspiration pop over to Dude Time Doodles.  The design team have been hard at work again.
Looking forward to seeing all your fab creations.
