Sukkot 2018

Tonight the festival of Sukkot
(Feast of Tabernacles or Feast of Booths)
is starting and many Jewish friends have
build their own Sukkah (booth) and those who have
not will visit people who have to fullfill the obligation
of sitting in one and say the special blessings.
You find info about this Jewish Holiday HERE.
The background of my card is made with these
stencils by Tim Holtz and distress oxide inks.

Next stamped with Jewish stentiment in black.
It says: chag sameach, meaning happy celebration.
This stamp is from Zum Galli Gali Rubber stamps.

For the words here I used letter dies and leaves
and beam die by Tim Holtz.
I colored the paper with the same colors of distress
oxide inks that I used for the background panel.
The stamp of the Sukkah is also by

The inside of the card is first printed with the
computer and  then decorated with some
left over images.
Thanks for looking
and enjoy sitting in the Sukkah!

What a beautiful card Hetty - our sermon yesterday (Sunday) was about Sukkot and the significance of it. So very interesting, and I have a great appreciation of the foundations of my Christian faith being rooted in your faith and traditions.
