T(Y)oucan Do It?

     I have been wanting this stamp/die set for well over a year now. A few weeks ago My Favorite Things placed it on clearance. I got both for pieces for half price. 
     Stacy was having a quick scrap as part of the Sketch N Scrap birthday festivities. I decided to participate, but as usual I am NOT good at the fine print. I was making this card thinking I had until 1PM to complete it. At 10:55 I realized that it actually had to be completed and posted on FaceBook by 11:00. I hadn't glued the first thing down. In five minutes, I glued down all of the front of the card, took a terrible picture, posted in the appropriate folder (the picture was sideways), and sat back to take a deep breath of relief. I started looking through the other entries in the folder and realized they were all from the same sketch. I did not realize that I was supposed to use the required sketch. I immediately deleted the picture from the folder and set out to complete the inside of the card. 

Card Sketch #58 by Lisa Hidy
     This is that card. It is now complete and I have taken some extra time making sure the photographs are right side up.

     I have used this sketch before. Go here to see the previous card. This time I flipped the sketch. I used some Echo Park Jungle themed paper and colored the toucans with my Copics.  

     I am entering this card in the Sketch N Scrap BINGO game in the box labeled "Song". So here is the song: "The Toucan Song". You can hear the melody on YouTube here

Inside of Card
     I made this card for a high school graduation. The daughter of one of husband's buddies is graduating. 

My BINGO card so far.
The Toucan Song

In the jungle I can fly
Thru the trees way up high.
I am a one; I am a two
I am a toucan, so are you.

To to to toucan; to to toucan
Eat some berries; eat a seed
Fresh ripe fruit; it’s what I need

Oh! Bam toucan

I live in holes; I got a beak
I play games; squawk and squeak
Black and white; orange and blue
Red and green; what about you

To to to toucan; to to toucan
Eat some berries; eat a seed
Fresh ripe fruit; it’s what I need

Oh! Bam toucan
