FMS419 and FF0051 Toucan Friends

Happy Saturday, peeps!  It's going to be a rainy day today, perfect to hang out in one's craft room, right?!  I did manage to get a little stamping in yesterday between tax/lawyer stuff, and it uses a couple of challenges, the Festive Friday Valentine's Day and the FMS sketch:

I thought the little toucan from Bonanza Buddies would be fun for a cute Valentine, so I turned the sketch so he wouldn't be looking off the edge of the card, and paired him up with some Best Dressed papers and a sentiment from Fable Friends:

I added a Real Red banner cut from the Bonanza dies, and used the edge of the die as a pattern to trim my sentiment to fit the curves of the diecut banner; I added some little Rose glimmer paper hearts, and colored the toucan's beak in red and pink to match:

I even cut an extra little wing to add to Mr Toucan's body so he could tuck his heart underneath!  The final touch was a little baker's twine bow at the top!  The inside had a simple "Happy Valentine's Day" from A Wish for Everything!  

Cassidy showed me some of the "forms" she is learning in karate:

Thanks for popping in today!  Be sure to come back tomorrow for a new Paper Players challenge!

When I saw that sketch, I had no idea what to do with it. You used it perfectly for your card. That little guy is so cute and I love what you did with the heart and wing. It's a winner in my book! If I did the move Cassidy did, I would surely fall over and go boom! Have a blessed weekend.
