What a card

Here's a card I made the other day, using the Southwest set from Posh Impressions. The thing that was different for me was that I layered the stamped images on paper (in this case, a blue sky with clouds background paper and a strip of tan cardstock) instead of stamping directly on a glossy card. And you know how much I love it when I can sneak in some recycling: I stamped the images on the back of a glossy insert that came with one of my orders of Posh stamps! As one of the pirates in my favorite movie would say, "Now that's what you call ironic."

I have at least two more card ideas I am itching to get on paper, but first I need to finish polishing up the first installment of the Holocaust memoir I am translating. I need to send it to the client tomorrow, then get started on the next installment. Also on Thursday, I need to take Liat shopping for some things she needs for her trip to Poland (I can't believe she's leaving in less than a week!) and bake honey cakes for the Sukkot holiday. It's not exactly traditional, but for many years now I have baked two honey cakes for Rosh Hashanah, and two for Sukkot. One stays here, the other goes to my in-laws in Jerusalem.

I finished up the black London Beanie (did I already tell you that?) and have started an earflap hat. So far, so good on that one. I am curious to see how it turns out. Nothing too exciting about a black knitted hat, so unless I can get a photo of Kfir wearing it, don't expect to see it here. Just not worth the computer memory.

Great card!!!

How long will Liat be gone to Poland?

I'm envious of all the crafting you are accomplishing. I'm having difficulty being motivated lately.

Love the card. Makes me think of Arizona ...I have never been there.
Isn't it freezing in Poland now ?
Oops sorry ...shouldn't have said that to a mommy who's daughter is going thee ? Well what do I know. Never been there either.

How's the sweater coming ?
I need to get something on the needles for Saturday. Old fashion Day and I need to go set and knit a while.

I love the card you made that came with the gift of yarn from Karin at Periwinkle Sheep--it's so creative and absolutely adorable!

A Holocaust memoir would be a somber thing to be translating--and so, so necessary. Thank you for doing that.

Did you cut the sun out too? That's my favorite stamp on this card. You have quite the imagination. Loving the purple armidillo!
