Poppy appeal!

This weeks challenge at The Stamp Man is "Poppies", and has been set by their dt member Janet.
She is hoping to collect some cards to sell later this year as a fundraiser for the British Legion Poppy Day Appeal. You don't have to donate your card to be in the prize draw, but I will be. In fact, I have already made 3 more cards that I will post another day, and am planning to make more.
I have always made a point of teaching my children to respect the sacrifice made by our armed forces, so that they have the right to disagree with anything they want to. Just because they may not agree with certain "reasons for conflict" does not mean they have the right to disrespect those that died for that right in the past.
Come the 11th hour, we stand in silence, respectfully wearing the medals awarded our kinfolk during WW1 and WW2, and pray for the safe return of our forces overseas.




For these cards I used a poppy stamp that was part of the "6 sheets of Floral stamps" from QVC(they haven't put the designers name on the set)
:D XXX

Challenges I would like to enter are;
Fab n Funky#71 Put those papers away(background papers made with leaf stamp)
