Several weeks ago we bought two plastic flamingos at the dollar store (along with THIS beauty). One now resides in my office and the other we'd planned on sneaking into the yard of our friends who live around the corner from us. Yesterday afternoon we knew they weren't home so in it went... that it was one of their birthdays today made it all that more special.
Thus "The Birthday Flamingo" was born. That sounded like too good of a drawing idea to pass up.
