Flowers, Hats or Horses

Hello, or should I say, Bula!

I have been holidaying in Fiji and am doing all I can to remain in the relaxed state I found myself after a few days on the gorgeous Yasawa Island although from the minute I got home it's been non-stop drama, everything from family members in hospital to work catastrophes. I had hoped to get a card made for the latest challenge at The Squirrel and The Fox a week ago, but just couldn't get a chance.

So here it is, better late than never I hope! Our theme this fortnight is


This is of course in honour of Australia's favourite horse race, the Melbourne Cup. Every year I have a small flutter on the horses and this year was no exception. But unlike other years where a favouite romps home this year was a major upset with all the favourites finishing in the middle of the pack and outsiders taking first, second and third. The odds were so high one lady bet eight cents on the first four horses to win and took home over $75,000!! How amazing is that?

Our challenge is sponsored by the ever wonderful Make it Crafty. Zoe kindly gave me Melody to work with, and you can find her here.

Now I have no idea why this photo is so blue! The colours are actually much brighter than this, pinks and greens and blues. I will re-take this photo, but given right now I am putting in such long hours if I wait until I get time to take the photo again in daylight the challenge will be over!
I hope you'll join us at The Squirrel and The Fox. As always, thanks for looking and your kind comments.
