A cactus (plural: cacti, the word derives from Greek, thus the Latin plural "cacti" is etymologically inappropriate, though it is frequently used nonetheless as is otherwise singular "cactus") is any member of the succulent plant family Cactaceae, native to the Americas. They are often used as ornamental plants, but some are also crop plants.

Cacti are distinctive and unusual plants, which are adapted to extremely arid and hot environments, showing a wide range of anatomical and physiological features which conserve water. Their stems have expanded into green succulent structures containing the chlorophyll necessary for life and growth, while the leaves have become the spines for which cacti are so well known.

This is a case-d card... the image I drew is based off of Maryse Carrier designs. I'm not sure if she is in business anymore? But her animals are so simple and cute. This little doggie has a bandana on. Tried to do the background sort of Zindorf-ish.... with the green as the sponged on ground cover, a little sponged blue sky, and yellow sun glow!! I think this card would be great for a southwest lover!
