Wow, already Tuesday? Geeze time does fly! Well, there is a new challenge up on Top Tip Tuesday and this week it is: Anything Christmas 

So here is my card using Karen's doodles Carolers. My BFF loves giraffes and I just couldn't resist when I saw this super adorable image. Thanks Karen for providing us with such an amazing image:0)

I have colored it with Copics and found a new FAVORITE color combo. R59,R29,R05. I like how it has an orangy tone to it. My TIP for this week is to only show part of a circle sentiment by hiding the rest of it behind an image. This is great for when space is limited.
Here is a close up of the giraffes:0)
