Oldies But Goodies at Karen's Doodles

Oooh, is it Thursday already?  That means another day closer to the weekend and another Oldies But Goodies showcase on the Karen's Doodles Challenge Blog. Why not hop over there and see what my OBG teamies have created - there's sure to be some wonderful inspiration - and you can take a look at our latest challenge, which is 'Use more than one Karen's Doodles image'

My OBG today is a simple masculine card (I hope!):

Image: Karen's Doodles, 'Bigsby The King'

Paper: Graphic 45, 'Halloween in Wonderland' collection

I love colouring Herbert but was a bit daunted by Bigsby and all his fur.  Still, nothing ventured, nothing gained and I'm pretty pleased with how this turned out.  I coloured Bigsby and Herbert with my Copics, using my Prismas to add a little shading detail and, of course, the 'glow' in the background.

I've kept the papers and embellishments to a minimum, although I couldn't resist those big orange buttons - they go so well with this paper! 

So, another day at work then Daughter arrives on Friday for the weekend, to help me sort out and pack away some of the house.  We've got woodworm in the kitchen floor, which is now happily collapsing beneath us, and the specialists are coming next week to treat the whole house!  This means that all the books, CDs, DVDs, etc., and my precious crafting stash, that are stored on and in various bookshelves and units have to be packed away so that all the furniture can be moved.  OMG! What a task.  Thank goodness for Darling Daughter (note the Darling has crept in!) as I couldn't manage this on my own.  It'll be a great opportunity to get rid of some stuff, though (so that I can make room for more stash, of course).

Happy crafting
