Morning all, well here we are, 5 days till santa will be coming down the chimney! I can't wait, I know Amelia is very excited about the countdown now, Nancy I think is still a bit young to understand, I can't wait to see their little faces on Christmas day with all their presents!

Im here this morning with this weeks challenge from Top Tip Tuesday! 

With the big day just around the corner we have what should be a nice and easy challenge for you all! Were looking for

Well I will share with you my little creation now, I had made this card for a friend.  It was for her dad from her children, as some of you may have seen me say before I struggle with men all year round, Christmas is just as hard I find... but then I came across this cutie from Mo's Digital Pencil - He is called 'Shall I Play For You', now I think is is once of the cutest digs I have seen, he has been sat on my computer since last year, I only used him once and then Christmas had come and gone again! 

I apologise for the deceiving colour on the above photo, I can't seem to find the original, and as the card is now on someones wall I can't take another photo, A good job the rest of the pictures came out OK! Here this little man it a bit closer, I love the little dog sat next to him, I can also think of so many sentiments I want to try with him - especially christmas ones! 

If you have come over from the TTT blog you would have seen my tip this week about making your own sentiments using a word/pages document on your computer, you can make them as small or large as you want and cut them to the shape you want too! I decided to use the wording 'Christmas Wishes for a Special Granddad' on this card, I printed a few different ones off all at the same time to make use of the paper! 

Both the image and sentiments were printed on Neenah card stock from Crafters Companion and the image was coloured with my copic pens - now once again I can't tell you what colours as I never wrote them down - plus with the move I can't find my lil book anywhere! 

I would like to enter this card to the following challenges; 

Bearly Mine - Anything Goes
Everybody Art Chalenge - Anything Goes
My time To Craft - Winter pals
Try It On Tuesday - Anything Goes
Make It Moday - Anything Goes

Now I hope that many of you will join in with us this week! I can't wait to see what you have created! Remember if you have a moment pop by the TTT blog and share some love with the fab girls over there! 

See you soon!
