DT Card for the Squirrel and the Fox # 16 Food

Warning long post.....sit in the comfy position before you start to read,  lol...

Hi everyone, hope you had a great weekend so far. It's the Squirrel and the Fox time again, and we are asking you to create something with a food theme. My card is a free template I found on the net (Stempeleinmaleins) The left side of the apron is the fold. I just used stuff from my stash to make this card and I always use Pro markers for my colouring.
On Wednesday the 25th of April is a special day for us Aussies. It's Anzac day. It's a day to reflect and remember the fallen soldiers. Anzac stands for Australian New Zealand Army Corps.
It's a public holiday here and over the years the younger ones have taken to this day and have helped to keep the memories alive. We have so many soldiers and peace keepers all over the world, and so many of our soldiers have died in recent years, even we haven't been involved in any wars ourselves but our Allies have.
Just wanted to say thanks to all the soldiers: Army, Air force and Navy for all they do.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
2 Sisters # 88: Use a digi
TTT Shelly's Images : show us what you got
Digi Tuesday# 156: Distressed ( inked all around the apron, star and sentiment)

Here is a recipe for Anzac Biscuits, the women used to send these over to the soldiers. It's a special kinda biscuit, can be crunchy or chewy. Everyone loves them. Give them a try. They sell heaps of these all through out the year, but not more so than this week over Anzac Day. The profits of these special biscuits go to the widows and orphans or our lost soldiers. A worthy cause indeed.


Anzac Biscuits

Traditional biscuits baked by anxious wives and mothers during World War I, packed in food parcels, and sent to the Australian soldiers in the trenches.
Anzac Biscuits INGREDIENTS
1 cup rolled oats ( these are the full sized oats, not the chopped ones)
3/4 cup desiccated coconut
