The Stamptacular Sunday Challenge this week is a sketch challenge:

The 2 stamp, clear mini set is by Inkadinkadoo #60-30592 "Santa Dog" There is also a verse "santa claus is coming to town"; however, I created a verse in Wordpad changing it to "santa paws is coming to town" for a touch of humour.
I created a scene with tree and snowflake stamps, stamped the dog image in the middle, and coloured it with Copic markers. Tim Holtz DI "Weathered Wood" was sponged around the edge. I added CrystalGlaze to the dog's nose, belt and jingle bell, along with white fun flock on the dog's coat. Star Dust Stickles was applied along the snow lines. I also embellished it with a north pole arrow brad, green twine and a star button.
The tree and striped paper is from a 6x6 pad Basic Grey "Eskimo Kisses". The red star paper is from 6x6 pad Basic Grey "Jovial". Martha Stewart Edge punch.
I'm going to give this card to Alex, the owner of the doggy day care where my dog, Penny, boards when we are on vacation and has grooming.
Here's a tip for Top Tip Tuesday
After using Stickles or Crystal Glaze, this is what I do. I unbend a paper clip to make a straight piece of metal, insert it in the tip of the Stickles and pull upward clearing out any residue, then replace the cap.This makes it much easier to start the product the next time I use it.
