Now for my creation for this months reminder:
 And I am also excited about my new old Florist frog that I have my card displayed on.
 I was lucky to stop in Oamaru on the way to the Ed Sheeran concert in Dunedin with my friends, Karen, Amy and Ikey.

We stopped in at 'The florist' on state Hway 1 (next to the Lotto).  Where I asked whether they sold Florist frogs unfortunately they didn't but the lovely owner had one that she show my friend Karen who had never seen one.  I explained that I was wanting one to display cards and we pretty much decided that I would need to look in Antique shops.   After chatting about our trip to Dunedin and having looking around the shop we thanked her and was about to leave when she gave me this florish frog.  So nice. 

I was so excited and when I got back to Palmerston North, as a thank you I made this card that I will post down to the owner of the shop .  Hope she likes it.  
 
If you are ever in Oamaru, New Zealand, remember to pop into the T'he Florish' and have a look around, purchase some beautiful flowers and say hi from me. 

Look forward to see your creations.

Happy crafting
