See You Later Alligator!

 The challenge this week at Dutch Dare is 
a sketch! You can interpret it any way 
you'd like as long as we can see that you
are using the sketch. Please join us this week.

A couple of weeks ago I posted some paper dolls
I made for some twin girls. This card is for their
brother. He gave us two of his precious beanie babies.
I know how hard it is for kids to let go of their toys , so we wanted him to know how much we appreciate his kindness.

 If you are wondering why he is wearing green socks,
he had a green shirt on, since green is his
favorite color. But with the gator it was
way too much green, so he changed his shirt!
 The inside-
Inside- TOP
He gave us a little worm that looks
just like this!
