Dag 289 Rood Wit Blauw

Bij LIM is deze week de uitdaging, Rood wit blauw, omdat dat de kleuren van de engelse vlag zijn, en het dit weekeinde het jubileum weekeinde is van Koningin Elisabeth.
Omdat dit natuurlijk ook de kleuren van de Nederlandse vlag zijn wij een examen kandidaat in huis hebben, kwam dit kaartje naar boven drijven.
Het is de gewoonte waar ik woon, om de schooltas met de nederlandse vlag buiten te hangen als er iemand slaagt. Ik weet echter niet zeker of het in heel Nederland de gewoonte is.

The LIM challenge of this week is Red, White and Blue, because that are the colours of the Union Jack. And this weekend is the jubilee weekend of the Queen. 
But Red, White and Blue are also the colours of the Dutch flag. So I though it would be fun to make a Dutch Flag. 
Around here it is custom to flag the Dutch Flag with the schoolbag when the school exams are passed. I am not sure it is custom in whole of the Netherlands. 
Since the results will be in next week, I made a congratulations card.
