Tickled Pink


If you are looking for the Life Imitates Doodles Weekly Wednesday Giveaway #16 , you can find it here.

Today, my hubby took a Great White Pelican in his lunchbag.

Doodlewash prompt ‘Tickled Pink’. I chose the Great White Pelican for the prompt because during the breeding season the males take on a pinkish cast to their faces. Tickled Pink seemed appropriate.

Alebrijes Orca


Did you know that despite the nickname Killer Whale …

… Orcas are dolphins? Even Alebrije ones like this. They are definitely killers though, eating seals, whales and even other dolphins. They seldom hunt humans.

Dolphin was the prompt on Doodlewash for January 10.
