I think that's how you're supposed to say it anyway lol!! It's time for a new challenge at Crafty Ann's but we'll come back to that in a sec because first of all I need to tell you who won the draw for the prize on my blog for the blog hop  - all the names of those of you who took part went into a hat and the one that came back out was Janet who wins these two sheets:

Congratulations Janet they'll be dropping into your inbox really soon.

Now to the new challenge and #16 takes it's inspiration from the football world cup. It's simply to fly the flag for your country (whether they are taking part or not) by using just the colours in your national flag although hair and skin tones or leaf tones can also be used as can gold and silver. We also need to say which country we're flying the flag for - I think the title of my post tells you mine :oD

I've used the daisy and the red gerbera from the new pre-coloured sheets in two different sizes for mine. My bps are a lovely white pearlescent paper and a piece of polished stone red from the brights collection. Both have been put through the c/bug Nat folder. I've also made good use of the allowed gold mirri card - the four smaller flowers are sitting on a Marianne's border die which has had white satin ribbon threaded through it and three little white pearls added to the centre. I've used gold die cut flourishes instead of leaves - again Marianne's and apart from the glitterations borders, that's it.

I'm also entering my card into these challenges:
Thank you for dropping by today and for the lovely comments you leave me. I hope you'll get the time to join in with us and fly your country's flag.
