This is a very apt card for remembrance day. Lovely red poppies. I was in London last weekend just to go and see the poppies at the Tower of London. It was a worth while experience, very humbling, and a trip never to be forgotten. It's a long journey for us but we had the luxury of 1st class rail travel and a lovely hotel. I love the buzz of London but only for a few days at a time. Now back to work and looking forward to Christmas.




I have used Memory Box poppy die, LOTV papers, Spellbinder dies, Tim Holtz distressing inks, liquid Pearls and the rest from my stash.
