Sozzled Giraffe!

I love this image from Art Impressions, the sentiment is perfect, because he really does look as if he has been out on the town drinking his vodka valium latte......



Coloured with Promarkers, I used saffron, vanilla, caramel, tan, ginger and spice

My son and daughter in law are having very extensive work done on their house, they have moved out, and the house is literally a building site. One evening they went to see how the work was doing, and two little field mice were running across
the floor of what used to be the kitchen. The next day Lidia took the children to Chessington Zoo. They were watching one of the animal handlers give a talk to the children about rats, complete with live rodents,  when five year old Max shouted out 'we have got rats in my house'
'Are they supposed to be there?' asked the zoo guy, (wondering if they were pets)
'NO' shouted Max 'they are in our kitchen!'
Hysterical laughter from all the other parents there, very slow, deep slide down into her chair by Lidia who tried very hard to pretend she wasn't with Max until everyone had gone!

I love the look on that giraffe's face & the sentiment is just great! Max certainly knows how to get attention - he's a real character by the sound of it. Pat x

That's ok Max, we had some field mice in the wood behind out house. They love to come into the warmth as the weather turns cold. But when the construction is finished, they'll be gone.
Love the card En! What an adorable little image. TFS Hugs, Jess

Love this card. You're right, that sentiment is perfect! Our kids may humiliate us when they're little, but we get a chance at revenge when they are teenagers. Then it seems that everything we do embarrasses THEM!
