Remember...

Hey,

Another weekend draws to a close...I haven't had much of a chance to get inky as on Saturday I went to Birmingham NEC to the Hobbycrafts Fair! I shopped 'til I'd spent up! I kid you not, I'd spent up by aisle 3 LOL!

Today's creation is for Remembrance Sunday. I always find Remembrance Sunday a very poignant time, stirring a mix of emotions. Truly grateful and thankful for the people who gave up their today for our tomorrow, whilst at the same time very sombre. I was especially sad at the fact that this year saw the first ceremony without a British World War One veteran . It's like a piece of history has disappeared...

So in order to promote Remembrance Sunday, I decided to use with my PTI Remember set today. I kept the colours very patriotic. I like this combo though I was very close to adding a splash of Ripe Avocado. But as you can tell, I was determined to stick to the colours of our flag. If I play with this colour combo again, I'll definitely add some Ripe Avocado though - it looked super!

That's too funny--I was just telling Kevin we need a bigger house for all our stuff! :D Your card is wonderful btw!

How beautiful, Aimes :) I think it's sad too that there are very few WW 1 veterans...if any now. It is the end of the era for sure. But I think it means we still remember but also remember that there are others who are still fighting, but for different reasons unfortunately. Love that you have "Remembrance Day" like us, although ours is on Wednesday and I'll have that day off smack in the middle of the week. Can't wait to see your new goodies...are you excited about the new PTI releases? I've learned to order the night of the release so as not to be disappointed about certain sets :)

Gorgeous, thoughtful card Aimes :) That is so sad, isn't it? But as long as we hold Remembrance Day, they will never be forgotten. My grandfather is a WWII veteran and he and his remaining squadron get together every year for this occasion.

Oh, beautiful! I bet you had a tough time not adding any green! lol The design is fabulous! Sshh, won`t tell Chris, if you won`t tell my husband about my PTI order I am going to place this month:)

Hugs,

What a lovely, thoughtful card. I bet ripe avocado looks stunning with those colors. Glad you had a fun shopping adventure. I need to clean out some drawers and do some craft reorganizing.
