More kippot... and a tag

A new client noticed this card on my blog and it really appealed to him. Apparently the boy wearing the colourful Bukharan kippa reminded him of his son. As a result he asked me to make two more similar cards, this time depicting his family. The card on the top left is for his wife, who has an interest in writing and books, and she is depicted surrounded by her husband and four kids. The second card is for his sister, shown in the centre of the card, along with her Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, and again surrounded by her brother and his family. On this card it was requested that I add the flag of Israel with its blue Star of David on a white background, between two horizontal blue stripes.

Yesterday I was tagged by Laurie and I thought it would be a nice opportunity to tell you a little bit more about myself. Happy reading!

Your latest cards are gorgeous - the spaniel is so realistic! What instrument do you play?

LizzieJane said...

Goodness gracious, I am so amazed that you could remember all those things, I have trouble to write down 10 of them when I am tagged, a very impressive list I must say.
Your new cards are very lovely, they must take a lot of work.

Laurie said...

Yes, that spaniel is beautiful! It takes a real artist to make such simple lines so 'alive'! I loved hearing more about you via your list.

Your cards are as lovely as always. I could never do a list like that. Mine would be filled with things that I want to do but never will! Ha!
