two posts? in one day?? is that even LEGAL??!

here's a card i have made for my new blogging friend hetty's "jewish card challenge" ...altho, my card is more of a "thank you card that incorporates some hebrew text"...since it has absolutely NO religious significance of any kind... (hetty--does that still count?)

we could use use any jewish theme (i used some travel-related pictures from a hebrew workbook); we were meant to also include: at least one stamp (chinese character for love); at least one embellishment (compound flower); at least two layers (a page of hebrew text & a piece of origami paper); and a handwritten or stamped original title or greeting ("oy vey! are there ANY souvenirs left in china?!")

ok, so it's a really specific card, that hallmark will probably NOT be releasing a version of anytime soon! but my friend liz, who teaches chinese (...and also happens to be jewish...) just came back from shanghai with literally an entire gift bag of presents each for myself and our friend janet...and we were teasing her that there were probably souvenir shortages when she left! when i read hetty's challenge, i thought, "aha! i can make the world's quirkiest thank you card!" ...and so i did... (oh yeah, and i managed to work in a couple of little elsie bits, too!) :)


  1. How cool is that???
    You rock!

  2. Hmmmm, a card for a Jewish girl who teaches Chinese and visited Shanghai. Yes, very specific. Not one you would mass produce to have on hand in case you needed one again later, huh?

    Your blog is so much fun to read. I appreciate your comments on mine! I hope to have an update for my blog tomorrow.

  3. i only wish i could get a better look at it (it won't click!) but anything with red, black grey looks good to me - oy :-)


the *BEST* part of blogging is the comments, dontcha think? thanks for taking time to leave one! ~♥~
