This little guy has got to be one of my favourite ants, the look on his face is priceless! You can do so many sentiments with him, the obvious one is OMG You're how old! But I thought of another one. 
My youngest son and his girlfriend are looking for a house so the inside says it all, lol! 
I used the Operation Write Home Sketch for the card because Doodle Pantry is sponsoring them this week. Its a great sketch, so hop on over to OWH and give the challenge a try you could win 3 Doodle Pantry images!
