Ric#34 Take 2 - Lest We Forget

Yesterday was a special day in Australia (and NZ) - Anzac Day.
 It is the day we remember all Australians who served and died in all wars, conflicts, and peacekeeping operations. The spirit of ANZAC, with its human qualities of courage, mateship, and sacrifice, continues to have meaning and relevance for our sense of national identity. On ANZAC day, ceremonies are held in towns and cities across the nation to acknowledge the service of our veterans.

I was watching the various services on television - Canberra,  Anzac Cove in Gallipoli (Turkey) and France. They also interviewed veterans and told many stories of valour and mateship. It is definitely a day for reflection and with this in mind, I found myself making a card in memory of our service men and women.

The frame stamps are from Kaisercraft and have been stamped with Versafine black and clear embossed. The Poppy has been coloured with water colour pencil and copic marker and the centre hi-lighted with black enamel.

I'm also entering this in the Simon Says Stamp Anything goes challenge.

  4. Jenny I love the way you've created your card with the Anzac spirit in mind and it was a perfect fit for the runway inspired picture.
    Thanks for stopping by my blog and sharing your 'sugar free' story with me. I'm still holding firm on staying off the fructose so hopefully I can continue with it. Wishing you well with your journey.
