Hello Peeps, I hope you are having a great crafty weekend ? I snagged a pretty cool FREEBIE fish this afternoon drawn by Teresa on the 2 Crafty Critter Crazies Blog and I decided to use it for a masculine Christmas card for a fish loving friend. After colouring the fish I covered it with textured sticky backed plastic to give him some shine - it doesn't photograph at all well though :-( He is sitting on a pencil sketched fishy tank. The background paper and overlay are also freebies from PIXEL SCRAPPER.
Hi Guys, Just popping in quickly to say that there are lots of new items over in Fiki's craft shop..... great prices and very reasonable postage costs. I am having a browse hoping that it will kick start my Mojo, which seems to have deserted me just now ! If you want a browse - grab a coffee and head on over HERE: http://craftykittycatshop.blogspot.com
Remembrance Sunday is held in the UK and the Commonwealth of Nationsas a day to commemorate the contribution of British and Commonwealth military and civilian servicemen and women in the two World Wars and later conflicts.
The national ceremony is held in London at the Cenotaph on Whitehall.
Two minutes' silence is held at 11 a.m., before the laying of the wreaths.
The silence represents the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month in 1918, when the guns of Europe fell silent.
This silence is started by Royal Marinesbuglers sounding Last Post and ended by Royal Marines buglers sounding The Rouse. Gunners of the Royal Horse Artillery fire a gun salute at the end of the silence.
WE THANK YOU ALL
The backing paper came from an old CD of papers. Barbed wire was printed and fussy cut and a couple of poppies were cut also and decoupaged to make them stand out.
