Staying Cool

Summer is here and down this way in Texas we'll do just about whatever we can to stay cool.  Sitting under a palm tree sounds so inviting.

I used an image from From The Heart Stamps called Tropical Chicks.   Love those Birdbrains!  I sponged in a little sky and some sand and then paired it with some sunny yellow patterned paper from Recollections. The sentiment, from My Favorite Things, was added and then a punched flower with an enamel dot.  (I keep waiting for the coconut to fall and conk him on the head)!

I'll enter this in the challenge at From the Heart Stamps (sketch).

Thanks for stopping by.........
Lynn

Another fun and fabulous Birdbrain! The yellow on the bird and the yellow paper were definitely made for each other, Lynn. I'm not sure I'd be resting so close under those ripe coconuts, though. :-D
