VLV--Remembering the Brave
I wonder what happened to the practice of veterans selling the the little red paper poppies....I remember purchasing them as a child. Mom or Grandma would give me some change to buy a little red paper "Buddy Poppy" from the older gentlemen wearing their VFW hats. At the time, I knew it was special, but didn't really understand.
As Veterans Day approaches, my students will be practicing speaking parts for a program to honor service men and women and will be busy making Valentines to share with the VA Hospital in February. It is a blessing to explain our freedoms to children and to help them appreciate our veterans.
My card is based upon the first VLV sketch for November and uses two Verve sets: Poppy Birthday and American Hero. The digital paper is from Cottage Market.
