Prima Cards, Skissedilla, Paper Dvizhnik,Get Creative Challenges. Remembrance Day

Last night I put aside for a 'scrapping' night - everyone was either watching tv or went to bed... so an ideal time to look over some fabulous challenges and have a go.

 Could you tell I made a spelling mistake?  Good grief!  Saw it once it was up and linked...
Have fixed it up my end, but this pic will have to stay. (very big roll of eyes!!)
Here's the sketch

November's Card Challenge is to use an 'unused/new' stamp in your stash!
I'd just bought this stamp (part of a set from Stampin' Up'), created this little Christmas tree card by using up scraps and taping the spine with a canvas 7Gypies tape, also been in my stash for ages.  It worked and binded so well!  The image has been coloured with watercolour pencils

Here's my stamp I've used....


Last of all,  its REMEMBRANCE DAY here in Australia
On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month each year, we remember our fallen soldiers, those who sacrificed so much.
My great-grandfather lost his life in the First World War.
Red Poppies worn today are a symbol of the poppies found in the Flanders Fields where most of the fighting occurred.  
Here is Paige,  who laid a wreath on behalf of her school this morning.

Enjoy your Sunday

I love your blog Mandy! I'm going to follow it. All your challenge entries are great, but the Paper Dvizhnik #11 is simply amazing. I've seen a few other people attempting this challenge and I must say your layout is my favorite.
