If it's Sunday it must be the Hard Rock Casino!

Hi folks,

What a start to our weekend? Went to leave the house yesterday morning and guess what we saw as we opened the car door?

Once we "rescued" this little chap (and no less than four of his friends!) we collected Wynneth and Tom in the "frogmobile" and headed off to Winter Garden Village and guess where we ended up? Yes, Joann's!! SURPRISE!

From the mall we headed off to the old part of Winter Garden which is so very quaint with lots of 1930's architecture, a fab yogurt shop (our first stop), a quilting shop (our 2nd stop!) and some fabulous trees full of hanging moss ....

Then we headed back via a Chinese buffet but we were so hungry that we forgot to photograph anything at all!!! Once we dropped Wynneth and Tom back at their place we headed  home and were greeted by ....... yep, ANOTHER one of those cute little frogs!!! There were others but they weren't so easy to photograph! We even had one appear on the windscreen whilst tooling along the I4 (like motorway) - it was at this point our car became the "frogmobile"!!

It's been a while since we've seen so many frogs!
So, there was just time for a little crafting before the season finale of Doctor Who! YAY!

  • 12.5 cm square 250 gsm white card and matching envelope
