We Will Remember Them - D-Day 70 Years On

We Will Remember Them - D-Day 70 Years On 



What a poignant day - 70 years since D-Day. I am looking forward to listening to the coverage on Radio 2 - especially the concert at 8pm. So this card is for everyone who gave us so much all those years ago - we must never forget them - and those who continue to do so.

The stamp set used is Stampin' Up!'s Words of Courage - perfect for today. Colours used are Always Artichoke, Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso & Whisper White

The words were all lined up and stamped using the Stamp-a-ma-jig. The topper was cut out using the Deco Labels Collection & Circles Collection Framelits. Linen Thread and Cherry Cobbler Candy Dots finished the card.  It ended up a random size as I wanted to repeat the words three times.  Luckily I could use the Envelope Punch Board to make a custom-sized envelope!


Lots of the boys from Colchester have been parachuting in as part of the ceremonies and today I am proud to live in the home of the Parachute Regiment and to remember those who fought on the beaches for us.
