This week, many countries are honoring those who have given their lives serving their countries. In the U.S., it is recognized as Veteran's Day. Remembrance Day is also known as Poppy Day or Armistice Day. So this week, our challenge inspiration is Reds For Remembrance. When I first read the challenge, I was not sure what "Reds For Remembrance" meant. So, I went to Google for information.
I learned from Wikipedia that the Red Remembrance Poppy became a symbol for remembrance day due to the poem "In Flanders Fields." The red poppies bloomed in the fields in Flanders where many soldiers died during WWI. Such a strong representation of the blood shed during this war.
So we remember and honor those who have served to protect our freedom!
Stamps: Scarecrow Tilda
You may see a scarecrow, but I see Tilda with her arms open wide ready to give a big hug. I colored her with distress ink.
I had these red poppies and thought they were perfect for Remembrance Day.
I used the sketch from Stamp With Fun...
I am also entering this in the Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Poppy Field
