Remember...

Hi Everyone...
Today is Rememberance Day (Veteran's Day down south)...a day to remember how our troops fought for the freedom that we enjoy today.  Every year, I am reminded of just how fortunate we really are....


In honour of Rememberance day, this year, I made this card:





I used this GORGEOUS stamp set that I won over at Chupa's blog, called, "Poppies", by There She Goes Clear Stamps.  Thanks, Chupa!


In Flanders Fields
By: John McCrae

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
      Between the crosses, row on row,
   That mark our place; and in the sky
   The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
   Loved and were loved, and now we lie,
         In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
   The torch; be yours to hold it high.
   If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
         In Flanders fields.

I hope you all have a wonderful long weekend and that you remember all that you have to be thankful for...
