Happy New Year!

or L'shana tovah! to all my Jewish friends!  As you know an apple and honey are symbolic of sweetness so they are usually the focus of my new year's cards.  I love eating apples as much as I love coloring them, especially with watercolors.   However, being the big Wendy fan that I am I wondered if I could take any of her stamps and make them fit my theme. 

Yes!  (Thank you, Wendy!!!)  Her tree (Mail Art) is perfect!  I colored the tree using green, red and brown Tombow markers then stamped over the hills created with 2 masks colored with green distress inks.  The message on the card is in my own handwriting, something I don't do often as it usually doesn't look very nice.  I stamped 'Shalom' at the bottom using the same brown marker.

May the new year be a good one for all of us!


  1. A sweet and happy new year to you, my friend! this is a very sweet and delicate looking card.

  2. If that's your handwriting Susan, I want you to write for! I think it's great, I honestly thought it was a stamp! LOVE the card, that tree is perfect!
