Happy Hanukkah!

Well, I didn't expect to be back so soon, but all my jobs sorting out the transfer of power and phone, insurances etc to the new property were so much quicker than I expected! This used to take such a long time in the UK, and things always went awry! But here in NZ (much smaller population) things seem to tick along like clockwork, so as long as I haven't jinxed anything with those comments, looks like we're all good to go! Which means, I've got a few minutes up my sleeve to blog another card, yippee!

This one I made for my lovely Jewish pal back in the UK who has just been celebrating Hanukkah with her little girls. We had the distinct pleasure before leaving the UK of sharing one of their Hanukkah celebrations with them, which was such a special time for us all, so I wanted to send them a Hanukkah card this year in remembrance of that.

This lil' cutie is drawn by the fabulously talented Mo Manning and she's called Bekka with Challah. For those who know the traditions related to Shabbat, you'll know how appropriate this image is. I was really pleased when I went hunting for designer paper to complement the way I'd coloured the image, to find the perfect match in a lovely stack of Forever Friends Kraft Notes paper pack.

I've coloured the image with a mix of my Promarkers and Flexmarkers and for a change haven't used anything else! No glitter glue or glossy accents to be seen anywhere! I have kept the card design incredibly basic, it's pretty much as CAS as it gets! Which is more a testament to how much time I've had to complete my Christmas cards than a design choice. But in this case, I think it works fine, which is primarily down to how fabulous Mo Manning's images are! Very little embellishment is needed with these gorgeous detailed images. On that note, I'm off after one final 'arty' shot of the card. Loads to prepare for our cleaning blitz on the new house tomorrow, so best get organised.
