Days We Remember

Just a few short days after the end of Passover we were celebrating again here in Israel. Last Tuesday we stood silently and showed our respect for Israel's fallen soldiers and civilian terror victims on Yom Hazikaron, Remembrance Day, which always precedes the next day's celebrations of Israel Independence Day, Yom Ha'atzmaut, the anniversary of the Proclamation of the State of Israel in 1948. We had a house full of friends on Independence Day and so, once again, my card making and crafting was put to one side. However, I have managed to create a few pieces in the last few days, some of which I would like to show you.
First of all, below is a card I created for a special mum. I was simply asked for something pretty and classy, and I hope that I have fulfilled this brief. Below the floral card is a fiftieth birthday card. The customer liked this card, and I was happy to re-create it, turning the 50 into the candles on top of the cake.
Today it is Sunday, the beginning of a new week here in Israel, and I hope to return to routine and actually get some card making done this week!
