another Bigsby birthday card

I just noticed that there are a lot of birthdays in February. My own son turns 17 next week. No, this card isn't for him. This is for a friend who was a Close To My Heart Consultant. I don't know what it is about Bigsby that brings out the colorful in me. Each time I make a card with him I find that I use primary colors. This paper is Close to My Heart's Birthday Bash, long ago retired. I don't bring it out too often.
Bigsby is one of Karen's Doodles. In fact, he was the first of her precious character images that she shared with anyone. My friend and Karen's friend, Dawn, over at Dawn's Craft Place introduced me to Karen and Bigsby. I hope you will check out her blog. There are a lot of bloggers that post and sell digital images. Karen's style really speaks to me.
Have you ever used a digital image? Don't get me wrong, I love my Close to my Heart acrylic stamps, but there is something about digital images that can't be beat. You can make them any size you want, you can flip them, you can mirror them. Try them, you will be glad you did.
Thanks for tuning in.


  1. Oh he is so cute! I can see why you want to use bright colors for him. And you color so well! Wow!

    I really like digital images, and am thrilled to see more of them offered. Will definitely be checking hers out.

    Thanks for sharing!
