May the wors be with you
With the independence celebrations in USA, there is quite a few challenges on patriotism and using the colours in your flag. Luckily, our flag in South Africa(see side bar), have 6 colours to play with, so mine is a quite colourful. I broke away from the more traditional animal kind of cards and focused on probably the one thing we all have in common in our diverse country and that is fire. We, love fire, cooking on fire - like barbecues (or as we call it: Braai or just making a pot of food (potjiekos)) or just making a fire to stare into it for the ambience, there is nothing in comparison than a fire in the bushveld with a lion's roar in the distance. In the more rural areas they make fire to keep warm as well. In South Africa, barbecue is not just limited to summertime, like in the northern hemisphere, but we can do it all year round and it is so part of our heritage that when you invite people for dinner, it is presumed that it will be for a braai.
The digi is from Di's Digis and I've used water pencils to coloured it. Backing paper is from the stack DCWV - One for the boys and the striped paper is from DOCrafts, that I have received with a magazine. The bright yellow diecut resembles an upcoming sun , and represent my province in South Africa - Mpumalanga - that means the upcoming sun. Buttons and ribbon is from my stash. The sentiment is a local best wish: "May the sausage(wors) be with you"
