Hi, I'm back again..2nd post for today to honour and pay tribute to some very special people. Tomorrow in the UK all the men, women who have sacrificed their lives in the 2 world wars and also in the more recent conflicts will be commemorated at the 11th hour, of the 11th day of the 11th month. I take time out to spare my private thoughts to all those families who've lost loved ones... they will never be forgotten...those who gave their last breath so bravely so that we can have the freedom we have today. This card is for all those left behind.

The top panel is the left over cutout of a circular image, too good to throw away the remaining card so I stamped some stems and leaves from an Elzybells floral stamp sheet, drew around a poppy stamp, hand cut 3, stamped the middle of it using another stamp, embossed all of them, added a little ribbon bow. The bottom panel has a sentiment from Holly Hobbie 'nature walk' stamp set which came free with a mag and the tiny butterflies were from there too!  Challenges ...Creative Inspirations 'red flower/poppies', Simon Says 'keep it simple', Loves Rubberstamps, Creative Crafts 'only words', Bunny zoes 'ribbon' as is Incy Wincy, Flutterby Wednesdays ' brown butterflies...tiny ones', and Papertake 3rd. Bye for now.
