The Roses Challenge - Aussie, Aussie, Aussie....

Hello......... Last Sunday of the month which means it's time for The Roses Challenge!

Mary Anne picked the theme for this month and it's a great one!   A PATRIOTIC theme.  Here's what she said:


This month, with the Olympics (which rings our world together), the U.S. 4th of July, etc. I want
you to create something to show me what patriotic means to you. Use your country's colors and be proud!

With the Olympics opening ceremony on Friday.... this house is set for two weeks of SPORT!!!!!

London put on quite a spectacular and though I didn't stay up to watch the ceremony live, I watched it on Saturday evening.  Born in the UK I still like to see 'The POMS' do well in sport unless they're playing Australia that is :)


 So now I had to make a card and luckily can combine both Countries.We share the same colours in our flags, with a Union Jack  in both but the Aussie flag has the Southern Cross to the right.

Ian thought I should go with the popular green and gold colour theme, which is used by the athletes.......but I like the idea of Red, White and Blue which we share. It's also the colours for the American Roses........even better!



Thanks Mary Anne, great challenge this month.

The Australian girls 4 x 100 mts relay have won our first gold medal......so we're off to a good start.
Aussie, Aussie, Aussie..........

I am so thrilled that you played along, Sue! This is awesome! I can't seem to switch off the TV, even when it is a sport I have no interest in. Tell Walshie, thanks for his input!
