LEST WE FORGET

Hello Peeps,

I am here with my piece for Remembrance and I really enjoyed colouring my poppies. I used my Promarkers. I really love poppies and I'm very pleased that they do grow out here in my garden :-D

I used a FB Freebie from DELICIOUS DOODLES  for the main image and Poppy Paper also by DD for the background. The handsome young man pictured in the corner is my late Father at the Burma Star Veterans' chapel on the Isle of Wight for the Remembrance Day memorial service  a couple of years back now.
I loved seeing Father so proud wearing his medals and now they are safe with me :-)
We shall be forever grateful for what they did for us. All gave some but some gave all.




The image was printed out 3 times and then fussy and mounted with foam pads to make it 3D. The red card is from my stash.

Thanks for visiting today.

Challenges I am entering:

Aurora Wings Challenge #8 - Heartfelt Thanks   **** TOP 3 ****
Cardz4Guys #44 - Thankful or Thanksgiving

This is beautiful - the poppies really "pop" (excuse the pun) and the photo of your father brings a wonderfully personal touch to the whole piece :)
