It's not easy being GREEN!


I am making the last minute dash for the Moxie Fab World Get Sketchy Challenge. Late last night, I was feeling sleepy ...but then I just had this idea and I thought it was a little "crazy" (well, I was sleepy, like I said). Here's my funny design.
So my DD Stephanie asked : "Now WHO are you giving this card to?". I said "...uh......Daddy, of course!". OR, I said to her with a cheeky smile that when she meets the right boyfriend that she admires...and is too shy to say anything, THIS will be the go-to card (LOL)! She was not amused, of course, but I think she might find it "handy"! I also think this froggy can be the spokesman for the Environment....now  that's cheeky, but I think we do have to take good care of the environment. So let's just BE NICE and KISS UP!
