High Hopes ~ Use your Country’s Flag Colors

Happy Sunday Everyone! So sorry for the late post. My middle son made his First Holy Communion yesterday and after the beautiful mass, our family came over to celebrate. I got to bed a little late and wonder of wonders, the children slept in which meant that hubby and I did as well! This was great except I was seriously running late by the time I got up!

Here is my card for this week’s High Hope challenge. We had to use the colors of our countries’ flags. Hmmmmm…Canada has a beautiful flag with just two colors: red & white. This card was a huge challenge for me but in the end it was fun! I used Seymour’s Sick days and this fun HH sentiment seemed to pair up perfectly!

Hope you can join us! Thanks for stopping by. I so appreciate it! Have a great day!
