Pull My Finger!

Here we are, into February already and I can't help but wonder how that happened?  I know I say it all the time, but really, where does my time go?
Today's card is for a little guy's 2nd birthday and I think this High Hopes image is such a hoot.  The birthday boy won't get it about the butt fire but his two brothers certainly will and I can pretty much guess what will be said and the ensuing noises.  Sheesh... little boys!
I didn't realize until I have the pic up just how uneven I cut the sentiment... again, something I always say is 'why don't I notice that until it's too late?'.  Oh well... it is not the end of the world and the card is already gone.
Thanks for stopping by!

It's smashing Marilyn! Love the dragon's texture and that fire coming out of his bum is hilarious!
What little boy wouldn't be delighted to get this card! He will NEVER notice the only VERY slightly skew wiff sentiment, 'coz he'll be too busy laughing when his brothers explain things to him. xxx
