    Hi Birfree, and welcome (belatedly) to this forum :)

    We don't really use "bienvenu" in this manner in French. Tu es le/la bienvenue(e) is generally used without a complement (= you are welcome here).
    I would probably rephrase your sentences in French, eg. Tu peux m'appeler quand tu veux, or N'hésite surtout pas à m'appeler.
