Yummy apple

One of the Jewish New Year's customs is to eat a red apple. The apple symbolizes the year that we want to have: sweet, whole, round and smooth with no bumps. To emphasize this wish the apple is dipped in honey and then eaten with the blessing: "may we have a good sweet year!"






















In light of this, apple is a popular theme in The New year's cards, dishes, table cloths, napkins etc. I decided to go with the flow and make a card with an apple. The writing on the apple: "Good, sweet year".

  7. I used two stamps - one for the leaves from Heart Felt Creations and one for the apple from an old game of my kids that had all kind of stamps in it.
