Good morning everybody - I cannot believe it is Saturday again.

First of all before I get on to my DT card for the One Stop Card Craft Challenge this week, I would like to announce who won my candy from the OSCC Blog Hop .......... Chosen by my lovely OH.  It is ..............

Trish will you please email me your snail mail address so that I can get the candy in the post to you.

This week on OSCC the theme is Pop-Ups, and we are being sponsored by the Digi Doodle Shops Best Store.

I have done a very simple Pop-Up, and my theme is Remembrance - a time for remembering all the brave men and women who have given their lives in the service of their country, that we might be free.

I take no credit for this beautiful image - it was a digi from Marjie's Malarkies.  It comes with various other bits and pieces, and I used a flower and leaf to create my own backing paper, and of course most people will recognise the words from 'In Flanders Fields' attributed to John McCrae and written in WWI.

My pop-up is very easy to make, it simply has a piece of concertina'd card behind the image, which allows it to lay flat to go into an envelope, but when opened the image pops-up.

Thanks for stopping by. I really appreciate your comments.
