Remembrance...

Lest we Forget 
Nov 11 is Remembrance Day in Canada in honour of our military vets and current soldiers.   I have always worn a poppy, as has my hubby but I was saddened today when I was out & realized that the majority of people don't wear them so I came home inspired to make a card in honour of all our soldiers.


Em introduced Green Bean Baby by Ellia military men & women for both Canada and the States soldiers and I think that's pretty amazing!  I chose GI Jane (what can I say I wanted to colour her hair)   Canadian GI Jane is stamped with mementos ink onto bella's bestest paper and coloured with copics.  For the ribbons in her hair I used an atyou spica pen to give her some girlie touches and for the buttons I used silver viva decor (a little something I picked up when I was at Stamping Bella on Saturday) The ds paper is from basic greys archaic line; one of my favs

I'll be back on Friday with my Bellariffic Friday's card - holiday or Christmas; you have until Thursday afternoon to email Em your card to be included.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you take a moment to remember our Veterans & those men in women currently serving in the military.

Dana 


copics: E0000, E000, E00, E21, R02, 41, E42, E43, E44, E47, E49, YG91, YG93, YG95, R24, R27, W5, W7

I agree with you that fewer and fewer people are wearing poppies - it's very sad! I was wearing my poppy and was very happy that WestJet paused for a minute of silence as we were boarding for our 11:15 flight. I even had a airforce vet sitting beside me in the lounge. Your card is perfect for today - thanks!
