Rememberance Day with Corporal Clegg.

Good Morning - Today is Remembrance Sunday so I have made today's card using Corporal Clegg.

I really wanted to use the poppy paper but mixed it with the wood effect to create some harsh contrast to the pretty flowers - I guess that's part of the symbolism of the Poppy in War.

I am really interested in my family history and have done a huge family tree. I found one relative who was in a prisoner of war camp and died two days before liberation - So sad! I managed to find where his war grave is in Belgium and was able to have his story remembered by the Royal British legion campaign to commemorate every fallen solider. It really is an amazing and interesting site and really quite easy to find any relatives they may have been involved in the Wars.

Hope you all have a great week - see you next Sunday
