In Flanders Fields......

ABC - Embossing
Colour Create- Red, White, Black and Yellow (Option of Flowers)
Rainbow Lady's Challenge - Poppies
Cute Card Thursday - So Charming.
The reason I have put In Flanders Fields is as every time I think of Poppies I think of this poem by John McCrae. I will pop it on at the end of this post. We had to learn it in Primary 5 at the school so that was 1984 and it has always stuck with me!!
  • Old CD
  • Embossed Black Card(It is embossed honest!!! Thanks Jackie)
  • Gorjuss Stamp (Poppy Fields)
  • Coloured with Watercolour Paint and Sakura Pen
  • Ribbon, Peel Off, charm and flowers from stash.
I stuck the charm above the Gorjuss Girl to have a shooting star as an emblem of hope in the poppy field. The embossing was from sizzix but it hasn't really come up well on the picture. If you click on it to enlarge it you can see it more clearly!
Right off to get on with the afternoon. I am sooooo sleepy today as I have had a busy morning with my Worry Woman and also didn't really get much sleep last night so my fingers are all over the shop!!! LOL Thank goodness for the spell checker.
Its very windy here today but also right cold again!
Here it the poem In Flanders Fields for you to have a wee look at.
In Flanders Fields
by John McCrae, May 1915

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.
