We Will Remember Them

"They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them."

I am thankful for those who sacrificed their lives to give us freedom.  What a price was paid, so that we may enjoy life, in an abundance of ways, in our amazing country Australia!

And for those service men and women, who are even now protecting our country,  our freedom and way of life,
thank you!

I have a dear friend, who has longed served our country and it's time I thanked her for it!  Here's a card I've created to thank her for all she has sacrificed for our country.  A small token, but something I haven't actually every said to her.  Thank you my friend.

Here's the details, if you would like to create a card, similar to this.

1.  Tear the edges of a panel of white textured card.  Stamp 'Large Poppy Stems' using black ink.
2.  Stamp 'Small Poppy' twice onto white tissue paper using red and black ink.  Fussy cut around the images.
3.  Scrunch the poppies up to create texture and affix to 'Poppy Stems' with double sided tape.

4.  Stamp 'Remember' onto torn vintage text with black ink and place above poppy flowers.
5.  Cross stitch 3 x's along bottom right corner.  Affix to folded card to complete.
