A couple of weeks ago, I was lucky enough to have my name picked by Monsieur Random Number Generator at the The Alley Way Stamps blog hop, and won the three newly released stamp sets … wow … I mean really, WOW! I’ve been longing for some TAWS sets for a while so to say I was excited is an understatement … more like EXCITED. They arrived yesterday afternoon … bet you can’t guess what I did yesterday evening! So, a big thank you to Ali at TAWS … her designs are fabulous and the stamp quality is top class … plus there’s an amazingly talented DT who provide inspiration and ideas galore.
Today, I used one of the sets to make a card (rather than just randomly playing with the stamps as I did yesterday) … it’s the last day for this week’s ‘Yellow’ challenge at CASology and there’s a super simple sketch by N@ali over at Case this Sketch, so I combined the two …
Yep, I know … you’ve never seen or heard of a yellow toucan before. Well, he’s a rarity … in fact, he’s rarer than rare … he’s unique. Thing is, he’s spent so much time in the sun, his plumage has taken on the toucan equivalent of a tan … and being the individualist he is, he rather likes it that way. Even now, he’s trying to sneak off the edge of the card to take advantage of the glorious sunny afternoon we’re having. He’s from TAWS’ Tropical Hideaway set, as is the zig-zag (stamped numerous times to make the border), and the sentiment he’s standing on. Colours come courtesy of Promarkers.
I’m looking forward to a browse around the other entries to see what yellow delights everyone’s been inspired to create. Thanks so much for coming by … hope you’re having a simply splendid Sunday … Anita 🙂
