Happy New Year by Hetty

New Year??? It is September. Yes, tonight it is Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year. All over the world Jewish people will eat a sweet apple with honey to wish each other that the coming year will be very sweet indeed. The apple and the honey jar is one of the symbols you see on lots of cards people send each other. I was so happy to find this digital freebie on FireCracker Designsby Pamela. The text I printed with my computer. The apples are colored with copic markers and on this card I  used the whisped frame technique from the Feb/March 2010 newsletter.

Below you find the same digital stamp but used large and smaller. The honey jar I designed myself. This card is called a zig-zag card and is from the latest newsletter Aug/Sept 2010. On both cards I used Club Scrap paper from the Arts 'n Crafts kit.
So I wish all my Jewish stamping friends a "L'Shanah Tovah" (a very happy New Year)  and a wonderful creative beginning of the year 5771.
Info about the Jewish New Year can be found HERE.
