Hi all. Today is Remembrance Sunday and we as a family wherever we may be take time out to remember those who've lost their lives in previous wars and also in todays more modern conflicts. It is the least i can do personally to show my appreciation, to say 'thankyou' to those who've sacrificed their complete lives so that we can live in relative peace and harmony. Two minutes out of my life to observe this is very important to me and we must pass this onto our generations to come.

So with that said...onto my card which is using Cafe Lucy from Sparkels range of rubber stamps. This is the kind of stamp i could easily send to say 'let's meet up or just 'hi', it's wonderful to colour! Used my Promarkers, sentiment from American Crafts set from QVC. Slight dusting of glamour dust to finish.

Challenges entered...Sparkle Creations 'white on white' as are Fab n Funky and Crafty Pad, Oldie but a goodie 'buttons & bows' as are Paper Pretties and Pretty Little Ribbon shop, Creative craft 2nd entry 'minimal'. So there we have it...enjoy a fab Sunday.

Hello everyone, hope that all Bonfire celebrations went well and that all had tonnes of fun! Today my creation is a shaped one using the fab background layout from Nikky's Polka Doodle cd 'back to nature'.

Made quite a few and are always well received, so thankyou Nikky for putting all your hard work into these fab creations for us crafters!!! The only thing is, i've used a fab digi image from Digi's with attitude but I'm unable to link up with them. This is a gorgeous giraffe, definitely with 'attitude'! Coloured with some of my newer Promarker colours, lifted with foam pads, round sentiment is from cd, used some animal pattern to coincide with the giraffe, stamped the other sentiment and finished with some lacey scrap & ribbon.

Nikky's paid so much attention to detail, the fence has a backing to it too! lovely jubbly!!!

This is the support to back onto the card itself, beautiful and is on the cd too.
