Illustration Friday ~ Canned



When Velma heard she was getting a pink slip she was delighted! She didn't realize she was being CANNED.

Knowing Velma, she'll argue age discrimination.

PRiceLess! Velma really does look quite happy with the prospect of a new pink slip. Great work Nancy!

lil kim said...

this is great! Those poor middle-aged fairies - never really thought of that. Maybe she can teach fairyness to younger fairies or something, poor luv.

nice job! Sometimes getting canned is awesome! More time to flirt?

Shani said...

Oh how cute! I'm sorry she got a pink slip (but it's a pretty lacy slip!). Phfff...now that really bites when a fairy has to worry about age discrimination too!

Don't know how this one "slipped" by me... har har. Very cute play on words and wonderful collage, especially the pink colors.

We both had pink slips for this theme, hee hee.
