Welcome to today's post for Just Us Girls.
It's a little special as I am Host this week and
being close to our Remembrance Day (11th) I chose the word
As this is the beginning of a new month we have
Kristin from Lilypad Designs.
Welcome Kristin - looking forward to you
sharing your talents with us this month.
Around this time each year I make a Poppy Card
in remembrance of those past and present
who have or are serving our country.

I used the Memory Box Perky Poppy Die
cutting it out with white card stock then
the flower heads and branches and stems
with a red and green metallic patterned paper.
The background is lightly inked with 
Tim's Stone Stencil in Frayed Burlap.
Sentiment is from 
STAMPlorations Fond Expressions 2.
Adhered to white card base.
Pop over and see what our Guest Kristin 
and the Team created as their Thank You's.
Love to see you in our Gallery with your
Giving Thanks card.
Adding my Poppy card to the
P for Poppies or Pumpkin Challenge
at Alphabet Challenge Blog
