Happy sunny Thursday from Skyway Drive. Have you ever wondered about the different spellings for the Jewish Festival of Lights? Well I did! There is no difference in meaning, and the spelling difference is explained this way: There’s a sound in Hebrew that is somewhere between a “H” and “CH”. Hence, both the spellings are correct. I think is super fun that the stamp set I am showing you today has the sentiment spelled both ways. Pretty cool of Stamping Bella to do that!
Candles are fun to work on. You can play with them different ways. I did two fun things with these. I colored outside the lines to add glow and added some glitter accents with a stylus to add that sparkly red base of the flame. The glitter ended up giving my card a subtle hint of bling without being overpowering.
I love to hear your thoughts and comments, scroll down to the bottom and “drop me a note”!
