Lest we Forget
Today is Anzac Day here in New Zealand and Australia. It is to honour the soldiers of the Australian and Zealand Army Corps who fought in Gallipoli in 1915. My husband got up this morning to go to the Dawn Service.
Here is an Ode that is often read at these services.
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.
The Ode comes from ‘For the Fallen’, a poem by the English poet and writer Laurence Binyon
And now a card I made the other day when I saw Martha and Tina's challenge between themselves. They challenged each other to use the same stamp and patterned paper. The stamp is a rose from the Two Birds set from Hero Arts.
Used PP (Authenique ~Splendid) and stamped the rose in Rich Cocoa Momento. Coloured with Copics and then painted with some watered down Iridescent Medium. Gives it a real shimmer. Added some seam binding and some gems. Sentiment from Kaisercraft.
Hope the rest of your week is good.
