Just a little Snip and flutter!!

Hello All
Sounds like it's going to thunder in my area it's been
A lovely morning managed to get a wash on the line and dried
So it can rain all it wants although l would like the sun to stay out
Looking at the sky l don't think that will happen!!
What a lovely tribute to WW1 did you light your candles?
So nice to see the street in darkness show's how many people showed their respect
Just put this card together for a couple of challenges 

All items here are snippets except this gorgeous Penny/Black Stamp l won
From the Snippets challenge thank you so much Di

    A stunning card Love the Autumnal colours and sparkles, just spotted the little bird how cute is this.


  4. Hi Sandra, I turned off my craft room light - which is the one at the front of the house, and lit my led candle. It was a fantastic celebration of the event.
    I love your card, love the colours and subject.

  16. Oh this is lovely Sandra! A really Summery card and the butterfly is gorgeous!

    Lights off and candle lit here too - my Grandfather was in the WW1 trenches. Badly gassed and then hit in the head by shrapnel. He survived but in truth I don't think he was ever the same again.
