well hot-diggity-dog!

you nicies sure to love to cheer on your fabulous handmaking nations!
woohoo!


welcome to ... round B!
lotsa votes have already been cast in the 2011 handmade world cup (even though a Blogger.com crash meant we lost quite a few votes at the start - sorry nicies!) ...  some big winners and some big defeats (my poor canada ... OUT!)

the winning (top-vote-earning) team from each ROUND A match has moved forward.



our new ROUND B matchups are:

match 1
england vs. new zealand


match 2
usa vs. france


match 3
japan vs. spain

match 4
south africa vs. sweden

match 5
israel vs. greece

match 6
holland vs. portugal


match 7
australia vs. scotland


match 8
germany vs. italy
..............

now you get to vote all over again!

each round of voting counts towards the final drawing of who will WIN the grand prize (a $30 shopping spree in the shop of your choice! same rules as before:
there will be 5 rounds of voting.

each round (except the final!) will have various matches to cast your vote! the teams with the higher number of votes in each matchup will proceed to the next round!

the PRIZE is a $30 shopping spree in the Etsy shop of your choice, FROM the winning country! so for example: if south africa wins the 2011 handmade world cup voting, (they were the 2010 winners!)  then the winning entry will spend their $30 prize in ANY south african-based Etsy shop! :) (donated by me, rikrak! :)

woohoo!! each ROUND will be open for voting for approx. 3-4 days. so be sure to get your votes in.

the total number of entries will be the cumulative ballots from round 1+ round 2 + round 3 + round 4 + round 5!

NOTE: you do NOT need to have voted for the winning team to win. it will be a random draw of all entries!

:: ROUNDS ::
* the country that receives the most votes each round will proceed to the next round! so be sure to VOTE each round to increases your chances!


:: PLEASE MAKE EACH VOTE A DIFFERENT COMMENT BELOW! thanks! ::
you can earn a ballot for EACH match you VOTE on!
