L'Shanah Tovah--Wishing You a Good Year

Tonight is the start of Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year (5778).  L'Shanah Tovah--I am wishing all of my friends a sweet new year.

This is the card I sent to family and friends this year.  We celebrate the new year with the symbols of apple and honey, to signify our hopes for a sweet year.  This year, I focused on the apples.

I dug deep into my stash for the apple stamps from PTI Fruit Fusion, and paired them with a newish set, also from PTI--L'Shanah Tovah for my sentiments.  And, I used a brand new die (Brushed Off Rectangle) for the first time to get that fun kraft mat.

Here is a peek at the inside of the card.

I am entering this card at Retro Rubber #71: Anything Goes.  The apple stamps are at least 5 years old--could be older--and the sentiments are 2 years old.  I am also playing along at The Paper Players #362: Clean and Simple Harvest.  Of course, the apples are what I am harvesting this fall.

Thanks for Visiting
