While taking these pictures I saw a small animal with its back to me in the water at the edge of the river. It was nosing into the mud and fissicking around. It took my mind several seconds to recognise it, and when I did I was so suprised I let out a noise and scared it into the river, where it swam off - it was a platypus! Took me a few seconds to raise the camera and get some shots off. It is not often you see them in daylight and in civilisation - really topped off my day.
Now, to the card - I have made a card for two challenges this afternoon, while listening to Hawthorn nearly beating Geelong at footy - I combined the two challenges into one card.
Little Paper Shop Colour Challenge - LPSC#75: orchid, razzleberry, olive
Mojo Monday Sketch - MOJO146
The green bazzil card as a base, some SU Lovely Lilac, some DP from DCWV Pocket full of Posies stack, green ribbon purchased yesterday from the craft fair, and an image from Thereshegoes - Treemendous (sentiment too), and stamped in SU Old Olive. Kaiser bling added. An interesting combination of colours - not something I would have chosen to go together before this. Darn, Hawthrorn have lost by two points!
