Lest we Forget...

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

Today is Armistice day a time to remember.

Armistice Day is commemorated every year on November 11 to mark the armistice signed between the Allies of World War I and Germany at CompiègneFrance, for the cessation of hostilities on the Western Front of World War I, which took effect at eleven o'clock in the morning—the "eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month" of 1918. The date was declared a national holiday in many allied nations, and coincides with Remembrance Day and Veterans Day, public holidays.

They Shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn,
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We Will Remember Them!

Step by Step

1. 6 x 6 white square card.
2. Matted and layered black card.
3. I stamped IndigoBlu's Dinkie Poppy stamp onto red card with Archival ink.
4. I cut out the heart using red pearlescent card and stamped the poppy and embossed with WOW clear embossing powder.
5. To finish off I added the sentiment which was computer generated.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Fantasy Stampers - Poppy Appeal
Sweet Stampin - Red for Remembrance 
Creative Moments - Anything Goes
Crafty Gals Corner #97 - Use a Sentiment
Inspiration Destination #111 - Anything Goes

Many thanks for stopping by today.
Happy Crafting!
