Sunday Postcard - Once upon a time (beware the toad)

Once upon a time, a young Australian girl met a frog, possibly a very nice frog. Sadly, over the years she discovered that this "frog" was a venomous cane toad. Sad but true. Ah, the blog challenges are great places to get rid of some angst.
The image (of girl) is from Outsider Artist freebies, the frog/toad, castle and background are by Irene Alexeeva (Scraporchard).

  8. Oh I am still laughing out loud after reading your accompanying post. This is a brilliant take on the theme and the old tale of the Frog Prince!

  9. Ah, Marie, I had to look outside my window to see that my Frog-Formerly-Known-As-Prince still sits on my garden wall. I'm sure he's a distant relative to your despicable toad!! Great fun, and, as always, WELL DONE!

  11. Frogs are supposed to turn into handsome princes not nasty little toads. What rotten luck.
