Memorial Day …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Memorial Day honors the men and women who died while serving in the United States military…a somber but important day each year.  Today’s card is created with Painted Poppies.

The reason poppies are used to remember those who have given their lives in battle is because they are the flowers which grew on the battlefields after World War One ended. This is described in the famous World War One poem In Flanders Fields.  Today, it remains an iconic symbol of honor for the sacrifice of our veterans.

Thank you for taking time out of this day to stop by and view my post. These poppies are beautiful and the thoughts behind them can range from sympathy to joy … aren’t flowers amazing?

Enjoy your day and take a moment to remember those who gave all … to give us our freedoms.
