dream big

Morning girls
It's perishing and miserable here, nothing new in Scotland for this time of year but I'm now getting desperate for spring to arrive.  I don't think it's too far off mind you as me daffs are peeping though, or maybe they're getting used to this cold wet climate we've had this past year or two.
Anyway, as it's Monday it's time for a new challenge over on Karen's Doodles and we'd like to see

MASCULINE CARDS

Remember that you can now use any image on your creation although this will not entitle you to first place only second and third but it's so nice seeing more of you playing along.

So here is Bigsby doing his thang!!! I love this wee fella, he's perfect in any guise for our male themed cards.
The papers are a right mish mash on this one.  There's Kanban, Costco and Art Impressions but they seem to work.  I soooooooooo need to start using up all those odds and ends we all have laying around.  I've coloured as usual with copics, added some big brads to emphasis the juggling act and a couple of eyelets just for good measure.  The sentiment is a freebie but I can't remember who from so if you recognise it please let me know so I can give the person who made it the recognition. It's not like me not to keep note but.........
So, who's playing along?  Don't forget to visit my lovely teamies too for even more inspiration.

challenges:
Make It Colourful - smooth gradients
Crafty Catz - one for the men
OSAAT - anything but square

Thanks for stopping by
