We Remember

This Sunday is Remembrance Sunday, it is held in the UK and the commonwealth as a day "to commemorate the contribution of British and Commonwealth military and civilian servicemen and women in the two World Wars and later conflicts".  The Queen lays a wreath of poppies to remember the fallen and so the Poppy has become synonymous with this day.  Ilina has marked this day with a Poppy card design of her own.

By Ilina Crouse

Ilina also tells us why the poppy was chosen, she said "The remembrance poppy was inspired by the World War I poem "In Flanders Fields". Its opening lines refer to the many poppies that were the first flowers to grow in the churned-up earth of soldiers' graves in Flanders, a region of Europe that overlies a part of Belgium. The poppies have been used to commemorate soldiers that died in war. So, why not join me today to make a card to commemorate all of those who have lost their lives in war."

If you would like to see how Ilina created this card you can watch her video here.
