Tropical CAS

 Hello Friends ...

I've been busy the last few days working on my DT commitments but decided to take a break today and play along in a challenge I spotted that I thought looked like fun.  Since CAS (clean & simple) is not my normal genre, I enjoy playing in these challenges to literally 'challenge' myself.

I'm referring to the new challenge over on Addicted to CAS where the theme is TROPICAL.

I remember years ago when my husband & I went to Florida and I saw flamingos for the first time ... I was amazed at their color, beauty and gracefulness.  Then years later going to the tropics I was AMAZED with all the amazingly beautiful birds that you never see in NE Ohio or Western Pennsylvania!  

I create the water for my flamingos to stand in with Tombow markers & water.

My flamingos are a die set by Scrap Man (RL-011).

Other challenges to share in:

Aus Sentiments Challenge #296 - Summer + a Sentiment

 As always, thanks SO MUCH for taking the time to stop by!
