A Time to Remember

First of all a huge thank you to all of you who took part in our Topaz Dare last week – there were some stunning creations and it was a joy to come and see them all.

This week the Team have got together for a very special Dare:-

A TIME TO REMEMBER

Remembrance Sunday, the second Sunday in November, is the day traditionally put aside to remember all those who have given their lives for the peace and freedom we enjoy today. On this day people of many nations pause to reflect on the sacrifices made by our brave Service men and women.

The poppy became the symbol of remembrance as they were the only living thing that survived the bloody battles of Flanders during the First World War.

So to mark this very special Day of Remembrance we would like to see your cards based on the Poppy – be it the flower itself or it’s vibrant Red colour.

Please come back and leave us a link to your card. Here’s a little inspiration from the Team.
