L'Shana Tova (Happy New Year)


Wow! It has been a while, about 4 days since I last shared a creation with you! I had a lot of tests, papers and prep for the LSAT to do this week and I something just had to give. So, I am going to post the rest of my LPS samples today and tomorrow.

Next week marks the beginning of the High Holy Days for the Jewish Faith. The dove is an important symbol for peace in many faiths, including Judaism. Since the first holiday which marks the High Holy Days is Rosh Hashannah, or the Jewish New Year, I thought that utilizing the Little Paper Shop set 'Christmas Wishes' would be a perfect symbol of hope for a peaceful year. The sentiments also worked perfectly! As far as techniques go I managed to make a card WITHOUT copics, but I did utilize the 'Rock n Roll' technique for the dove. The rest of the card is simple, but I think it will make someone happy!

I'm off to LSAT class, see you tomorrow!
