A quick Bigsby card



Sorry I've not been around much this week - it's half term, hubby's got some time off work too and we're trying to get some organisation in the kids' room and in my craft room. We went to Ikea and spent too much money, and now we have lots of stuff to put together (neither of us are very good at that sort of thing lol), but hopefully at the end of it the boys will have more room to play and I'll actually be able to see the floor of the craft room again.

Pav took the kids to his mum's for a few hours today, so I made a couple of quick cards while they were gone, this is the first of them. I've used a fab freebie image from Karen's Doodles - I love Bigsby :o) I've coloured him with promarkers. I've cut the image out with nestie circles, then gone around the edge with a paper pricking tool and used a black fineliner to add some faux stitching... I'm still being a big wimp about using my sewing machine, I bought it months ago and am still yet to use it on a card! The stripy paper is from a local craft shop, red cardstock from my stash, buttons are MME.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:
