Green aligators, and long-necked geese...

Hiya!

Our house was  hit by the big storm on the east coast- we got over 26 inches! Can you believe it? If you can't, I'll have some pictures for you tomorrow - we did some serious shoveling! And boy, is it really starting to affect my back...;) We also lost power on Friday, just getting it back this morning around 2:30, which explains the late post.

Made a non-girly card today - something that is fun for me, but I can't usually find materials (at reasonable prices) around here that will work for boys/males and look nice. So I used some epoxy stickers from Making Memories today, from their Animal Crackers line.


I adore the detail they put into the alligator/crocodile right here...


they gave him toes! How cute is that?!

I used some ancient K&Company paper, and chipboard. I use chipboard as my kraft paper sub, but I think it actually works better than kraft here, as it makes the card sturdier, something I think a little boy would like.

Anyways, I was made this card inspired by these challenges: Sweet Sunday Sketch, All Sorts, Little Red Wagon, and Creative Belli.
One last thing - have any of you heard THIS song? I remember hearing it a verryyyy long time ago, and I can still remember some of the lyrics! Well, just wanted to explain the title of my post. ;)

Thanks for poppin' by!
