Apart from my blubbering about national pride and Australia Day below, this post is about my card for ColourQ #121. The colours this week are:
Today is Australia Day. It is a national holiday. We get to celebrate the federation of Australia over barbeques and beer, maybe watching some sport on tv, generally relaxing. I got to do one of my favourite things for Australia Day this morning. I attended a Citizenship ceremony. I think Australia Day is the perfect day to become a citizen, and every time I attend one, I get all teary at welcoming our newest Australian citizens on our national day. I make it through singing the national anthem (Advance Australia Fair), but then we sing the national song (We Are Australian) and I get so choked up that I can't sing properly. I'm a big wuss! So to everybody in Australia today, I say, Happy Australia Day.
