I Remember You

As I said "Goodbye" to my Uncle on Friday, the last of my Dad's generation and it is the time of year that we remember, I thought I would do something with a totally different meaning to the everyday birthday card or a card for the fast approaching Christmas festivities. This card is now sat on my mantelpiece to remind me of my relatives and friends who have now left us and for those who fought for our country to give us the quality of life that we have now. Not forgetting those that have been lost in the more recent conflicts.

One of my childhood memories is of my dear gran, singing along with Frank Ifield singing I remember you at the top of her voice, as he was her favourite. As this weeks Penny Black Challenge is a song title, this is the only stamp that I have that I can make a song out of!!!
So Gran wherever you are, this card is for you. x x x


I have kept this very plain, as I thought that more appropriate.
Penny Black Stamp called Poppies, I think.
Coloured with Copic markers (sorry about the markers in the background)
Card, paper, pearls, flower and brad from stash.

Hope you like it

Rest in Peace Uncle John
