Poppies for Remembrance - Spellblogger for Spellbinders


Hello! 
I'm back with another Spellblogging post for Spellbinders
and I've  a card to share with you this time, chosen especially to mark Remembrance Day


Today is Armistice Day, or Remembrance Day or informally "Poppy Day", when we remember all those who have given their lives in conflict and the quest for peace around the world
"They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them
."

 The poppy has a particular significance at this time, and most of us will wear one to show that we care, and appreciate the sacrifices made. 
Plus of course, the poppy is such a bright and hopeful flower, fiercely determined to grow and bloom, wherever!
Spellbinders recently released a lovely range of poppy dies, and I knew I needed at least one of them in my collection.  
 



 Materials
