I just got home from work and saw that Carol has been up to no good this afternoon!! Well, let me rephrase...no good in the sense that husbands/boyfriends would see it. She was card making with our brand new line (which has been released TODAY!!) that is all about Remembrance Day! Or, in the US, Veteran's Day.
I don't want to give you a history lesson, but incase you want a condensed version of why Remembrance Day is what it is...here it is!
Remembrance Day is such a special day that commemorates the end of World War I in 1918. November 11 is the day when Germany signed the Armistice which stopped hostilities. This was signed on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month...November 11, at 11:00am. Every year we not only remember the lives that were lost through military and civilian battles during the First World War, but also those who have given up their lives for the world to be the way it is today since then.
The poppy is a popular symbol of Remembrance Day. After battles had taken place, the landscape was barren. Soldiers were buried, and the once barren land were soon populated by poppies.
Due to the votes on the poll so far, we created this line specifically for you! And if it wins the poll, these will be your options to play with!
I understand that links in the blog have not worked in the past - but rest assured we have had them fixed so that they will take you to the site now!
Let me know what you guys think!!
