Warm Wishes

 Yes, Warm wishes to everyone.  It has been a little bit warmer the last few days here and that has been nice.  What I enjoy most is the return of the sun!  I don't like gray winter days.
This card just says Florida to me!  I always liked seeing pelicans around Florida.  So sad their numbers are declining.
The pelican is my reward for joining the challenge last week at Hambo Hoedown.  All the other stamps I used are Clear Dollar Stamps.  I masked the pelican and then brayered chalk inks to create the sea and sand. Then I used Ranger Distress inks to water-color the pelican and shells.  I used a white gel pen to add 'waves' to the water.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Hambo Hoedown - use Pelican image, blue, brown & tans beach scene
Creative Inspirations - plain and simple
Creative Card Crew - friendship
Digital Tuesday - use a die cut
Claudia & Co - about a boy
Digi Doodle Shops Best - anything goes
Now I'm going to go outside, even if it is super windy!  I know I can find something to do outdoors!
