Heart 2 Heart - Fine and Dandy

The challenge at Heart 2 Heart this week is "Fine and Dandy". This was a difficult one for me as this tends to be a saying that is used (I think) far more in the south than it is here in the north. I had to really think about an image that comes to mind for me when I thought of this phrase... The first thing that came to mind was the sarcastic use of it - when someone is angry and they use it in frustration. However, that isn't easy to use on a card or scrapbook page, so there had to be another alternative! 

A distinguished (or tiny man) wearing a bowler hat with a moustache was another thought that came to mind so that is what I decided to use. That is also difficult to do... Relying on some Cricut images and a Cricut pen that I knew would write from dark to light (as it was getting short on ink) to provide sort of an ombre effect, I made a greeting phrase on the right side of my card. The left side was reserved for an almost Potato-Head sort of face, with a bowler hat and moustache. I added some googly eyes, just for fun.
