Build It

Hi everyone, it has been a day of remembrance here in Australia today with it being Anzac Day 'Lest We Forget'.   I am a very proud Australian and support the values of what our nation stands for.  If you are interested in learning a little more about the history of the Anzac the Australian War Memorial has more information here.

I have been researching my family tree over recent years and have learnt that I have a strong military history in both the First World War and the Second World War.

WW1

Great Grandfather, James Angas Stark - survived the war.
Great Great Uncle Thomas William Edmonds - died of wounds 28 April 1917 and is buried at Brookwood Military Cemetery, Surrey, England.
Great Uncle Percy Sheppard, killed in action 29 April 1917 and is buried at the Bray Military Cemetery, Somme, France.
Great Uncle Horace Sheppard, missing in action 7 April 1918, Armentieres, France, grave unknown.
Great Uncle Almore John King - survived the war.
Great Uncle Herbert Water Rettig - survived the war.

WW2

Great Uncle Phillip James Rettig - survived the war.
Great Uncle Cyril George Rettig - survived the war.
Great Uncle Harold Stanislaus Rettig - survived the war.
Great Uncle Charles Louis Rettig (this was my favourite Great Uncle Jack) - survived the war.

Now for today's post.

I have been making more cards for sale to raise funds for our Cancer Council Relay for Life Team at work.   I have used the stamps sets 'Nailed It' and 'Stylized Birthday' along with the 'Build It' Framelits.



The designer series paper is from the 'Urban Underground" Specialty Designer Series Paper Pack.   This is a great paper to use for masculine cards and I am a bit sad that it is retiring along with the 'Nailed It' and 'Build It' Framelits at the end of May 2017 (or while stocks last).

Thank you for visiting.
