Toucan Do It!

Wednesday, June 5, 2013

I'm so glad that we are halfway through the workweek!  I'm going on vacation in a couple of weeks, so I'm busily trying to finish up all kinds of loose ends at work.  I can't wait for a little R & R as I putter around the house and garden.

Today I've got a colorful card to show you featuring one of the birds from Tropical Hideway from The Alley Way Stamps.

Once again, this stamp set has given me reason to use some of my DSP called Island Oasis.  For this card I paired some polka dots and stripes to create fun layers a-la the sketch at Just Us Girls.  Every time I look at this bird some memory tickles in my brain.  I think this guy looks like something familiar (maybe a cartoon character) but I can't quite put my finger on it.  Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks for stopping by!

The first thing that came to mind was Toucan Sam, but I look at this and I just hear Foghorn Leghorn. I say I say... either way, great card!
