Toucan

Hello everyone! I hope you have been enjoying the variations on the Toucan stamp this week.  This gorgeous design is from artist ching-chou kuik on Plate #211.  What a stunning image.  We don't have any toucans around here in Austin, but we are surrounded by native parrots.  Not the Scarlet Macaws, but green parrots actually live in the "wild" in my neighborhood. 
The other day I was walking by my neighbor's house (she has bird feeders) and I looked up at the power line, there was ELEVEN parrots right there.  WOW.  Sight to be seen, and a squawk you can hear!  Now, if we just had these awesome toucans in our neighborhood, imagine seeing that.  I think the parrots actually came from Mexico at some time and just settled here.  We also have migratory parrots of the same type that fly through.  There are times when I see parrots in different neighborhoods and locations and many more than typical.

Project Materials:  Cardstock (Bazzill, Neenah);  Image (Sweet Pea Stamps); Ink (Memento);  Die Cuts (Lifestyles);  Ribbon (Prima);  Butterfly (Flora Doodles);  Bling (Queen & Co);  Adhesives (Pop dots, Ribbon Glue, Glue dots, Glue All);  Color (Copic Markers);
