Yep!

Yapples is one of the creatures from Doodle Factory by Starving Artiststamps, and he's here to greet my nephew, Ian, a Happy 12th Birthday! Well, it was actually last Friday but with connection problems at home, he had to wait to be posted here.


And so, of my other creatures with the expressions on their faces, here's Yapple's story... He's excited that it's Ian's 12th birthday and to know that he's going to the Santa Cruz Boardwalk with them. He also just realized that he has a belly button and that he's naked! LOL!

Happy Monday!

Hello! Well I think its perfect that Yapples is being used for a birthday card since he's wearing his birthday suit! I love it when people make up stories for the characters.

Did you put in two sizes of googly eyes?! Awesome.
