Hoppy Birthday for Penny Black

I haven't been very well for the past few days, that explains the lack of posts on here.....but I wanted to take part in the Penny Black challenge this week which is 'On the Move'. I took it quite literally, and this little froggy certainly is on the move. I decided on clean and simple, but I am happy with the result. What do you think?



I put splashes of glossy accents on the raindrops and water, which looks great in real life........ 


One of the things I love about Florida, being a sub tropical climate, are the spectacular sunsets. The other day I went grocery shopping quite late, and when I was driving home, the whole sky was ablaze with the most glorious pink hues, it took my breath away. Of course I didn't have a camera with me, so I ran into the house with the groceries, grabbed my camera and set off again - sadly most of the colour had gone, but I managed to get this photo, which at least reminds me of my mad chase down US19 trying to beat the setting sun!

Hope you are feeling better Enfys.

I just love that card - the image is way cute.

I can certainly understand you wanting to snap that sunset - even though you say the colours were starting to go it is still amazing.
