ATCAS Challenge #62

Hi there everyone, how are you this weekend?

It's been a very early start for me, my dad and my son as we were up at 4.30am to attend the Dawn Service. Today is ANZAC day and also the 100th year since our soldiers landed at Gallipoli. Today is a day for Remembrance and gratitude. My great-grandfather was at Gallipoli and we have been going through his war records. It gets very emotional to think about the young men and women who fought for our country. Some of them younger than my own son who is 20 years old. So sad...

Ok, onto the new challenge over at Addicted to CAS.

The amazing and very talented Barb has chosen our code word for this challenge -

Please remember to only use the colour stated :)

Here is my DT card -

I embossed a heap of butterflies that have a coordinating punch from SU. I popped them all up on foam pads. The sentiment is from Inspired by Stamping.

This card is going to my Aunty who was on the cruise with me. She has had surgery on both her feet so I wanted to send her a get well card.

We have our wonderful guest designer, Pia, with us again for this challenge so don't forget to pop by and say hello.

Our sponsor for this challenge is
