First Vote

Here's my next BRAK card - using Melissa Frances papers.

I'm enjoying making these little cards, it's fun pulling all my bits and bobs out, flowers, buttons, ribbons, etc. and working on such a small scale.

If you want to be part of Jen's BRAK visit and join up, way cool!!

Well, I'm off to vote today - nothing amazing in that you may think - but, it will be my first vote in Australia, a state (WA) election. DH and I became Australian citizens back in February. It's compulsory to vote in Australia - if you don't vote, you get fined!!

Same happened to DSIL, who is Australian. He was in Scotland for two years, where he and DD married. When they returned to Australia, DSILs driving licence had been suspended. He hadn't voted (obviously, he wasn't in the country), hadn't paid the fines imposed, so they suspended his driving licence!!

Fortunately, he was able to prove, with his passport, that he hadn't been in the country during those elections, and his suspension was lifted.

So, I'm off to vote, don't want to be fined!!!

Love Jane

Thanks, Jane, for stopping by my blog to say hi. I do so love your pink card with the pretty D on it. I spent the week making cards from bits and bobs in my scrapbin. I think that bits and bobs means left over papers and die cuts? It's a new term for me American girl.
Have a great weekend.
