Dutch commemoration of the War

In the Netherlands we commemorate the victims of the War.
At 20.00 we are silent for 2 minutes all over the country.
This year that is a strange commemorations, for we all
are at home watching tv and standing outside at 20.00 o'clock.
It is 75 years ago and special memorials were planned,
but they are all cancelled or without public.

For today I found a very special sentiment by Club Scrap
from the kit Steppin'Out 11/04.

Not only we miss those who did not come back from
the war, but today we also miss those we cannot go to.
All materials are Club Scrap.

For my card I used the Dutch colors of acryl paint,
a 4x6 inch gelli plate and various Club Scrap stencils.

When playing with the gelli plate you end up with
quite a few wonderful papers to play with.

So here is another card and I made the globe with
a stencil belonging to Club Scrap Bookshelves 03/13.

Thanks for looking,
stay safe,
stay free
and keep crafting.

Beautiful card design and love the background. Your celebration is similar I believe to our Memorial Day. Usually that is a day of gathering in the USA too but I wonder if ours won't be a different commemorative day as well.

Amazing backgrounds Hetty, and fabulous cards.
We remember our war heroes and dead on April 25th, and there were no services here either, but everyone was invited to stand at their gates or front doors at 06:00hrs (the normal time of the dawn parades) while there was a brief service broadcast on the radio.
Stay safe
