Another B-I-N-G-O card from Bugaboo Stamps! AND some "firsts" from me!

It's Saturday, which means a new challenge over at Catch the Bug today! We are hosting our monthly B-I-N-G-O Card Challenge

Without further ado , here is this weeks Catch the Bug 
Bingo Card:

Isn't this BINGO Card the coolest?! So many choices!
You may choose three squares: horizontal, vertical, or diagonal!

I chose to a diagonal column of requirements for my card this week (Flower, Starts with T, and Starts with B). My flower is a Prima, connected to my card with a Brad; and, of course, the T stands for Turkey!'s right around the corner, folks! Can't wait for the turkey, turkey, turkey! lol!
My card features one of the Bugaboo Stamps Turkey images! This little cutie is the Turkey Pumpkin. I'm betting he's thinking he is camouflaged behind this pumpkin, trying to avoid the upcoming holiday! Haha....yeah....that's it, right?! 
 It, and the other great Turkey images, are available in the Bugaboo Stamps Store! Hop on over and check them out!

Now, you're probably wondering what the "firsts" are that I referenced in my title. Well.....
I have been a long-time fan of you crafty folks that can sew! I am so jealous of your sewing, yet have not been motivated enough to figure out how to use a sewing machine until I decided that this card needed some stitching. SO......I pulled out my machine, which already had a brown spool and bobbin threaded in it, and added my wobbly, crooked lines to my background paper and the one side of my image (why be normal and do the whole image, right?! lol! Okay, got me....the bobbin ran out of thread, and I still haven't learned how to re-thread it! lol! I'm so lazy-bad, I know....I'm working on it!) So, that is the first "first"!
The other "first" for me on this is that I used Gamsol to blend my colored pencils. I have to say, at first I was not sure I was all that impressed with it because I can get the same pretty blending with my colorless blenders, or so I first! Once I was done.......I totally love this technique! You will definitely be seeing more of this from me! Definitely! :0)
