Still Quoting

Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.

In the photo above you can see the Fetching wristwarmers (as modeled by Liat) and one of the two thank you cards I prepared. I used two different templates to make the Hebrew letters, then colored them in with Radiant Pearls paint. The heart in the center is a rubber stamp, which I inked with gold pigment ink and embossed with gold embossing powder. I'm pleased with the results, but I do want to find a more yellow gold embossing powder one of these days. This one looks almost brass colored to me.

The words say, "Todah" - "Thank you" - and "m'kol ha lev" - "from all the heart" - but of course the intention is, "with all my heart."

I think that pretty well sums it up.

Now, to wrap the gifts, write messages in the cards, and deliver them.

Well, first I love the quotes you've been putting on your blog. Makes me stop and reflect.

The mitts look great. The card is lovely. I like the fact that you tell us what you use for stamping...someday I'll get back to it.

I like the quotes, too! I may crib from you for some thank-you cards I gotta send out!
Love the shade of green you used - those are so very nice!
