Oldies But Goodies at Karen's Doodles

Oooh, it's Thursday again (would you believe it) and time for another Oldies But Goodies showcase over at the Karen's Doodles Challenge Blog.  My OBG Teamies and I have been digging through our Karen's Doodles images and have found some old favourites to inspire you.

If you've read back a couple of posts you'll know I'm very, very tired at the moment and could sleep almost anywhere during the day, although not in my bed at night!!!  Maybe I should take a leaf out of Bigsby's book:

Image: Karen's Doodles, 'Bigsby Wreath'

Papers:  October Afternoon, 'Good Cheer' collection (you guessed right! - These have been my favourite Christmas papers this year!)

Doesn't Bigsby look all warm and cosy?  I kept the card itself quite simple because of the vibrant colours I've used for Bigsby - so there's no matting and only a little layering and some simple embellishments.

All the colouring, even the 'glow' this time, was done with my Copics.  I wanted a really warm glow in the centre of the wreath and I'm quite pleased with the result.  I applied some highlights with a white gel pen, just to lift it a bit but there are no Prismas here this week.

I wonder what Bigsby will be up to next week?  You'll have to pop back and see.

Don't forget to check out the Challenge Blog and see what my Teamies have been working on.  While you're there, why not enter our challenge, which is 'Silver and Gold' this week (one or both) - we love to see what you create.  And don't forget, by entering you're in with a chance of winning up to three Karen's Doodles images of your choice.

Happy crafting.


  1. Oh, Peri, what a great card. Love the paper you chose and the layout. And Bigsby looks so adorable, fabulous coloring as always.

  2. Peri, I have dropped by a few times now and just wanted to say you do such a fantastic job on your cards and your coloring is out of this world girl! I hope things are well since you haven't posted for a while. Blessings, Jean
