Lest We Forget

Today is Anzac Day -  a day of remembrance so special to all Australians. It is also the ANZAC Centenary. This card was inspired by the Red Poppy - a symbol of remembrance to
Australaians for all the soldiers who never returned home, and the fields of red poppies where so many fallen lay in the fields of France in the Great War.
My little homage includes poppies from the Australian War Memorial, the Vase is from Turkey, and the Rosemary is also worn traditionally for remembrance- it is from my garden. Perhaps it has special significance today as our eldest son is a serving soldier in the RAN. So many lives of service to secure the home we love and the life we cherish today. Lest We Forget.

Watercolour poppy in Real Red from Simply Sketched, French Script background in versa mark o Mossy Meadow. Burlap ribbon and Mossy Meadow twine with Antique Brad and kraft card
Photo taken by our youngest son at the War Memorial in 2012 when we went down for the Army Marchout Ceremony for our eldest son. I love this.

With a grateful heart, God Bless, Liz
