Going Wild!!!

Hello Blogger,

It is early morning ... or late night, however you want to look at it (Thursday morn 2:21 am).   Was thinking of this card at my desk before making dinner on Wednesday evening.  Just about had all the planning done when the timer went off on dinner.  One thing lead to another and I did not get back to my creative desk until almost 1 am.  I am typically a night owl.  Final finished this little cutie in about 1 hour after sitting back down. 
I sure hope you enjoy him as much as I have enjoyed making him.
He is a 'WILD ONE'!!!  I love the bright colors.  Seems appropriate since things are beginning to bloom.  Love that sombrero ... it just SCREAMS summer celebrations!!!
