Dude Time Doodles First Birthday - Scavenger Crawl!

Welcome to the first Annual Dudeville Holla Scavenger Crawl! We are celebrating our First Birthday with style!

To begin and to find all the instructions and clues of what to do, please visit the Dude Time Doodles Challenge blog. You need to hop around the team although there is no specific starting point or end point, you just need to make sure that you've visited us all on the way. Leave a comment on each of our posts as some of us have candy on offer!

To celebrate this momentous occasion, I've created a card using Cowpoke Cal and coloured him with Promarkers. All the papers are left over scraps from my bits box and I've used my Nesties for shape and added some card candy plus twine from the kitchen drawer.

If you've arrived at me from Dawn then you are on the right track, although you can hop randomly if you want as long as you've visited us all! From me you need to go to one of our Special Guests - Theresa. We have a number of Special Guest joining us for the occasion!

So, what do you need to do at my blog? Study carefully my Dude card above - make a note of the item you have found (the list is on the Dude Time Doodles Challenge blog) and that you found it at my blog (Ruth). Leave me a comment on this post to let me know that you have passed through (without these words you will not be entered into my blog candy) and then hop to Theresa and do the same - repeat at each blog until you have visited us all! Go back to the Challenge Blog where you will find all the details on how to submit your answers.

The closing date for the Scavenger Crawl is 5 September with the winner announced on the Challenge Blog on 6 September. The Scavenger Crawl prize is a $20 Gift Certificate to the store and with a half price sale on Halloween images from 1 September you can get a lot more for your dollar!

I am offering this set of Papermania Boutique acrylic clear stamps plus an assortment of ribbons (not pictured!) to the randomly drawn winner from all the comments on this post before my deadline and I'll post anywhere in the world.

My blog candy will end at 10pm Monday 5 September and I will draw the winner during that week.

Good luck!!
