May We Never Forget!

On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month in the year 1918, the battlefields drew quiet as the hostilities ceased bringing an end to World War I.  Today, those of us living in Commonwealth countries around the world, stand by to honour those who have bravely fought in all wars to help keep the peace and keep us safe.

In my own small way of bringing honour to this day, I have created three digital papers for all of you.

Each of these papers is 3600 x 3600 pixels (i.e. 12 inches) and is published at 300 dpi. Credit information for the templates used to create these papers can be found in the credit note below. If you are a card maker you can always resize them smaller without distorting the quality.

Thanks for the papers Lisa. We don't actually celebrate 11th November which got me wondering why so I googled it. Here is what Wikipedia says:
New Zealand's national day of remembrance is Anzac Day, 25 April.[18] "Poppy Day" usually occurs on the Friday before Anzac Day.[19] The reason for the oddity of New Zealand having their remembrance on Anzac Day happened in 1921. The paper Poppies for Armistice that year arrived by ship too late for 11 November 1921, so an RSA branch distributed them at the next commemoration date (25 April 1922, which happened to be Anzac Day) and that date stuck as the new Poppy Day in New Zealand.

Armistice Day was observed in New Zealand between the World Wars, although it was always secondary to Anzac Day. As in other countries, New Zealand's Armistice Day was converted to Remembrance Day after World War II, but this was not a success. By the mid-1950s the day was virtually ignored, even by churches and veterans' organisations.[20]

Since the Unknown Warrior being returned to New Zealand for Armistice Day 2004, more ceremonies are now being held in New Zealand on Armistice Day and more churches are now observing Remembrance Sunday.

Thank you so much for using your wonderful talent to create these papers. Now, those of us who want to, can use them to make a card to say THANK YOU to the men and women in our lives who have served and continue to serve our country.
With kind regards, enjay

Thank you Lisa. I love these papers. I love especially that you remembered this day and brought it to everyone's attention. I watched the Veterans parade yesterday here in our small town. I love all veterans where ever they may be and am so thankful for them. Edwina Brown
