For this card I'm showcasing Goof off day!!  What a great day to showcase!!!  I would love to be able to goof off more often lol so while I thought this would be fun... I was a bit stumped for the image to use... That is until I thought of Bugaboo... Looking through the images that I had I fell across this one and just knew it was PERFECT!!!  Here is Consciousness.
For this card I used paper from My mind's eye - on the bright side two.  I used my curved rectangles from Spellbinder.  The corners were done with my CM punch!  For the sentiment I didn't  have another size of die that would not be too overwhelming... so I remembered seeing the use of the same size just offset on my friend's blog Cinzia-creations, she's super talented so if you don't  know her you should check her blog out.  I added some buttons from my stash and some twine.

Here's a closer look at the digi that I colored using my copics.  I put some glossy accent to his glasses so that it's shiny like some real glass... I added a fun sentiment from Create with TLC.  It's funny because I had printed another one for this card... but then when I found this one I thought it was just perfect!!!
I hope you have like my goofing off day creation!

Lynne will be going through her stash and sending one lucky winner a surprise package to someone that remarks and gives bloggie love on each of the participants.
