Wishing You Eight Happy Nights

The Holidays are officially upon us and up first this year is Hanukkah!  (Yes, for reals... it starts the night before Thanksgiving this year.)  SOooo... if you are Jewish or if you have Jewish friends and you want to give them their holiday cards in a timely fashion, it's time, dude.  It's time.

I created this fun (and super easy to mail) Hanukkah card using some FABULOUS stamps from CAS-ual Fridays stamps!  It's up on their blog today, too, actually!  YAY!!!!  I stamped the background repeatedly to cover the entire panel in a light ink and then overstamped with dark blue ink to achieve the layering without additional bulk.  To add just a bit of pizzaz I heat embossed Stars of David over each candle in silver.  I kinda love that.  Just sayin'.

I really kind of love this card.  It's simple, but super pretty and it just makes me smile!  I like to smile.  It feels better than that other stuff.. you know... like scowling and such.  Just sayin'.

I hope you have a fantabulous day with an extra ray of sunshine today!

Have a Happy!
