A Very Happy St. George's Day

Here is a plain and simple card to celebrate St. George's Day,
this beautiful Rose stamp is an oldie but a very much loved
and used one, it's from Rubber Stampede and I have inked
it with Timber Brown Staz On and stamped directly onto
this gorgeous red card stock from The Paper Mill Shop (saves
on colouring), cut out and mounted on 3d foam pads.

This poem is called -The True Dragon by Brian Patten

St George was out walking
He met a dragon on a hill,
It was wise and wonderful
Too glorious to kill

It slept amongst the wild thyme
Where the oxlips and violets grow
Its skin was a luminous fire
That made the English landscape glow

Its tears were England’s crystal rivers
Its breath the mist on England’s moors
Its larder was England’s orchards,
Its house was without doors

St George was in awe of it
It was a thing apart
He hid the sleeping dragon
Inside every English heart

So on this day let’s celebrate
England’s valleys full of light,
The green fire of the landscape
Lakes shivering with delight

Let’s celebrate St George’s Day,
The dragon in repose;
The brilliant lark ascending,
The yew, the oak, the rose

Have a fabulous Friday,TFL, Happy crafting Sue xx
