Top TIp Tuesday Time!

Hello everyone!

Long time no see!!  Hope you are keeping well.  I went back to England to see my family and have been ill so time has just flown past.

Before I get on with todays post, I just wanted to give a huge shout out to my DT at Top Tip Tuesday as they have really been amazing whilst I have been AWOL.  What would I have done without Carol and Samantha who have been doing all the posts etc.  Amazing team and wonderful DT - feel very lucky to work with them.

This weeks challenge over at Top Tip Tuesday is 


I {heart} this kind of challenge.  It was ideal for me to finally show you the card I made for my 6 year old son for his birthday!

I always find it so difficult doing a card for a man/boy - so since he is a HUGE Phineas and Ferb fan, I decided to make him a Perry the Platypus card!!  He absolutely adored it and its still up in his bedroom!!

I think it completely captures Perry quite well!!!  I was so chuffed when I found the exact colour that I needed for his skin colour!

I would also like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Craft us Crazy #26 - Inspire Us - creating a card from a TV character??
Pile it On #19 - Fairytales, Fantasies and Daydreams - a cartoon character is fantasy???!!

 Thank you so much for taking the time of stopping by my blog.  Now, please go and join in our challenge at Top Tip Tuesday - Clean and Simple challenge!
