whimsical wednesdays "going green" challenge # 45

happy wednesday :)  this week over at whimwednesdays were going green. creating a card or project or whatever that includes the color green. be sure to check out the rest of the dts marvelous creations :)

i made 2 cards
the first one is a guy card.
 a crafty bud of mine named robyn bogle  stamped and colored several of this awesome image for me didint she do a fantastic job! thanks robyn! 
you can check out the cute card she made  with this image ~> here<~
my lighting stinks on this but tried to show robyn used glass effects in the windows and on the light on the back of the truck. its awesome in person.  i added some twine and buttons. 


my 2nd card is one i cased from myself. a friend of mine had seen it before and fell in love with it so i decided to finally make it for her. i know she'll be pleasantly surprised :)

the frogs and flies ( which i wanted to make look more like bees cuz well flies just are gross.  are from a cuttlebug die the flower border also is. 
i used my cricut and minimonograms cart for the circles and computer generated the have a hoppy day. i added cloud9 raindots and sanded the flowers image a tad. i used stickie foam under the cuts.
then added the happy hello sentiment that i thought fit this happy card perfectly :) its also from the everyday sentiments set.
