It's TAWS Time: Toucan Do It!!

What a fun set of stamps that is being released this month by The Alley Way Stamps!!  On Monday, I showed you a "robotastic robot".  If you have been hopping along with today's hope - you have seen other robots, and arrows and chevrons, a little lemonade, and some tropical fun!  (If you haven't been hopping, be sure to head back to the beginning at the link above.)

This guy comes from Tropical Hideaway.  I may live in Colorado - about as far away as possible from anything tropical - but I can't help but be inspired by this guy's expression.
