A close up of one of our gorgeous day lilies from a couple years back. The lower left one is also one of our day lilies and made the background transparent so it looks like it's floating.

I have to apologize for a couple of things: 1st - I've never posted this in colour, oops, maybe one day I will. 2nd - I have been very busy with the skating and the competition starts at 7am Friday, so I'm trying to get everything in order.

Did the post work in 2 different programs, one is of course Adobe PhotoShop Elements 10 and the other creating the transparent backing for the smaller lily in MGI PhotoSuite 4.

I'm planning to add this to the B/W Challenge, hope you like it, please let me know.

Thank you for you friendship, support, patience and of course your wonderful comments.

Have a Great Day, ♥ Skates

In the last week we have received at least 1meter/39.4in. with the windchill's reaching -40C/-40F. of the white stuff and many hours of shoveling, to top it off my husband was away. Today we are getting another storm of 25cm/9.8inches.

Never argue with an idiot. They'll drag you down to their level, then beat you with experience.

Pat this is perfect for the challenge, so glad you are entering it, so well presented! I was watching some skating over the weekend from Omaha,Ne. and thought of you. Sorry to hear your getting so much of the white stuff, we have had very little so far. Tigs♥ =^..^=
