Wohoo...it will soon be home time

Hi folks...woohoo last day of the show...doesn't time fly when you're having fun...it's been mega busy busy busy but tonight I'll be winging my way home to my bundle of golden deliciousness...haven't half missed my big snuggly sleeping companion...mind you he does snore like a train and is inclined to take up more than his fair share of the bed but it's a small price to pay for his hot water bottle properties on cold and frosty nights.
On a more sombre note...it's Remembrance Sunday...a time when folks all over the world come together to honour our fallen heroes...to reflect on the ultimate sacrifice made by countless brave men and women in wars past and present in the name of freedom and peace...
I managed to make a quick poppy before I left from a Sizzix Flowers Die and some of that fabulous felt from The Ribbon Girl and regardless of what the politically correct brigade think or whether anyone is offended...I've been wearing it with pride on my Fiskars apron...

and no apologies for sharing yet again this gorgeous Delicate Blossoms image from Hero Arts...

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
I'll see you all tomorrow
Hugs Kath xxx

Your poppy is beautiful Kath, I would wear it with pride too. The card is stuning and so perfect to remember today. My favourite poem is 'In Flanders Fields' by John Macrae and I shall be silently reciting that today. Safe journey home to the lovely Buddy. Crafty hugs, Anne x

Have a very safe journey home Kath. Your poppy is terrific & I do like the classiness of your card - kraft, red, white & black just work perfectly together.

Wow Kath, that card is a stunner. Your poppy is beautiful too, and I can't image that anyone could be offended by someone's gesture to honour our fallen heroes.

Hugs,
Jennifer. x

I really wanted to make a poppy this year, but I was too busy! Ah well, buying a paper one helps the poppy appeal!

Hi Kath, your felt poppy is gorgeous, the card is stunning I love it. I didn't say yesterday, but your xmas card is beautiful. I like the tartan words, and the thick embossing, looks perfect. Hope you got home safe and sound...Trish
