Kind thoughts of Remembrance

Wishing you a thoughtful and peaceful Remembrance Day.  We've had a nice quiet one today.  We will probably take part in the candlelight vigils of remembrance this evening.  Hopefully one day everyone will understand the meaning of living in peace and harmony.  Too many times I've taken for granted that I grew up without fear of war on our homeland.  My children can walk the streets and play in playgrounds without the fear of stepping on land mines!!  And to top it off there's enough food to go around that I can share with those who don't have the means to buy their own. We are blessed!!

This card is another sympathy type card using Get Sketchy #13 .  I really like the colours and that sentiment has always been one of my favourites.  I added a little bit of So Saffron ribbon to give it a little touch of another colour besides blue and purple. What do you think?

Thanks for taking the time to look.  Hope you're week is going well.
