Remembrance

district 



Good Morning, All
 Today sees the theme of 
Remembering 
at 

I have decided to show you the photograph of 
the war memorial where my family's names are 
honoured from both World Wars.

I do hope that you will always remember the two
minutes silence at 11am on the 11th day of the 11th month to mark Armistice Day. 
This is the point in time chosen to officially 
mark peace following World War One. 
 
Remembrance Sunday is the Sunday closest 
to Armistice Day and this year it will actually fall on 
the 11th of November 2012.

 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


 I have used Teri's lovely image

Remembrance 

It is coloured with promarker pens although
the cross is done using picket fence 
Distress Marker.
I kept the design simple, printed it onto white digital card, coloured using poppy red and pine green
to highlight the poppies.
The image has been diecut using a grand label from Spellbinders and mounted onto white dot embossed card and everything is mounted on a white card blank 11 inches by 7 inches.   

Love and Peace, 
Vee xx
