Armadillo Tissue Box Cover

armadillo

We have been in Laredo for about 5 weeks now, and I have been doing tons of research on my new hometown. There are school mascots, minor league baseball mascots, local wildlife in nearby Casa Blanca State Park, and even a raccoon that my husband found scavenging in our trash can. Then I went to visit my husband’s new office, and it dawned on me! Armadillo is the mascot for his company, so that’s what I focused on for this week’s design. I haven’t ruled out designing something for the Laredo Lemurs baseball team, though.
