Issue with challenge 4

Hi there,

I'm trying to do the fourth challenge of the Sass exercises, but it keeps saying set the color to red, but im sure its red, can anyone help me with this

     ```html
        @mixin cars ($make, $color) {
.#{$make} {
border: 1px solid black;
background-image: url("#{$color}.png");
$time: morning;
a {
    @if $time == morning {
            color: red;
        } @else if $time == afternoon {
        color: blue;
    } @else {
        color: gray;
    }
}

}

} ```

Hi Andy,

You have include task 4 code as part of the cars mixin. It should be a separate thing after the cars mixin. You should close off your mixin before setting the $time variable to morning.

 @mixin cars ($make, $color) {
  .#{$make} {
    border: 1px solid black;
    background-image: url("#{$color}.png");
  }
}

$time: morning;
a {
    @if $time == morning {
            color: red;
        } @else if $time == afternoon {
        color: blue;
    } @else {
        color: gray;
    }
}
