Anything But A Card - Karen's Doodles

Good morning Peeps,

Well, what a lovely thought, half way through the week already and I have a feeling it's going to go really fast. Hubby is on nights and so I seem to be chaperoning my son to his Reffing games last night, football training tomorrow and another reffing game on Thursday, so not much time for me at all, just a chauffeur!

Well today my luvies at Karen's Doodles the challenge is "Anything But A Card", and I urge you to pop over to the UK Challenge Blog as the Design Team have come up with some corkers to get your creative juices flowing.

Now my Anything but a card is a bag of cookies, no longer filled with cookies, I hasten to add. My son made short work of those, lol!

I chose Bigsby with Christmas Cookies from Karen's Doodles and coloured this image with copics, isn't he just so cute.  The cookie bag was cut with my Cricut using an SVG file.  I used my nesties to cut out the circle and layered this with acetate.  I then cut out a scalloped frame, again using my nesties and positioned over the acetate to frame it.  I then enjoyed decorating it.

I have entered this cookie bag into the following challenge:-

One stop craft challenge - Anything But A Card
