AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

Works well for the alphabet challenge and the sentiment works for me! I love it.

Oh, I love this, would make me smile every time I saw it! And painting outside the lines is the only way to go...LOL!

I like the idea of throwing more colourful pint at life...but spending tons of money on a credit card is not a good choice, me thinks. :) Definitely quirky so you get an A+ :)

I like it, even if it is an ad.

Quirky is a great word for Q day, Gemma.
I love the paint splatters, and I'm sure American Express will happily pay for repainting that side of the building when the time comes to take down their advertisement.

I love imaginative ads. So much more than that just the billboard.

Beverley Baird said...

Great choice for the week! Love the ad - message is great, if you just take the credit card out of it!
Have a wonderful weekend!
