Remembering ...



Hello there ...

It's Remembrance Sunday here in the UK ... at 11am we have 2 minutes silence to remember the fallen from the past and present wars ... If only there could be peace ...

I have my card for Jingle Belles to share ... This prompt is a sketch ... by Allison Fillo  who by the way posts lots of sketch challenges on her Blog ... so if you are looking for one ... that's the place to be!

Here is the sketch


So, ok ... I kinda went a little of kilter with this one ... there was an idea floating around in my head ... so my image is not so much an image ... but a folded tree ... from a little piece of a book ... 12 tiny pages to be exact


Covered in a shower of mica flakes and glitter and decorated with little glittery stars


... But I did stick to the sketch ... even though my papers are not Christmas papers ... but I think the Melissa Frances range are so versatile ... and that little girl looked so 'Chrismassy' ...


I don't think this is going to go in an envelope though! Still it's something different 


I will leave you with a beautiful song from the late Dusty Springfield  ... For Remembrance Sunday


Till soon

A wonderful tribute to those who have lost their lives... If only there were no armies anymore... Peace and freedom are such wonderful words... Why can there only be peace around Christmas time... So many questions sometimes... It's wonderful to see your fabulous folded tree again on such a lovely card Ros!

i looooooooove seeing (& making!) xmas cards that are totally festive without using ANY specific holiday products; those MF papers are PERFECT for your gorgeously elegant shabby chic/vintage vibe... and just go to show that one needn't have a lot of specialty stuff, just a GREAT idea & a boatload of talent! (which you have BOTH, my friend!!!) ♥♥♥ looooooove this!!!

It's a stunning card, Ros, and it doesn't need the sentiment to clearly "marked" as a Christmas card!
