My card today features one of my new stamps that I recently purchased from Chocolate Baroque, I have used both the Poppy and a leaf stamp. I have coloured the images with Graph it Markers, mounted the image onto red card the papers are LOTV, I added a couple of red bows, buttons and a stamped 'Thank You' sentiment.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
I would like to share with you a picture of my mum's dad, my grandfather, he served in France during the 1914-1918 war, he was wounded but did survive, my mum and her twin sister were born in November 1919
Every time I look at this picture I am amazed at the likeness to my brothers I can see each of them, all 5, looking back at me.
The picture below is of my dad he served the duration of WW11 in Burma, he brought home the Burma Star and many awful memories, he rarely ever mentioned his time in the war, mum did tell us that dad's best friend died in his arms, my dad was one of the lucky ones and returned home to mum only to be taken from us so unexpectedly at the young age of 57.
Many thanks for visiting.
