Rosh Hashanah Blog Hop



Welcome to my blog and the Jewish Demonstrators Rosh Hashanah Blog Hop.  I hope you have had a chance to visit the other participants’ blogs as well.


My card this year is celebrates the hope of the autumn harvest of sweet apples and wishes you the traditional greeting of a “Sweet New Year.”  The Jewish New Year always falls sometime during early Autumn, usually mid-September or early, early October, variable dates, as we follow a lunar calendar.  This year it falls on September 10th.  It is a solemn holiday of prayers for thanks, renewal, hope and peace followed 10 days later by our Fast of Atonement or Yom Kippur, where we pray for forgiveness for the wrongs we have done individually and collectively as part humanity.  Most of the traditional foods we eat include the sweetness of apples, honey & spices like cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg & ginger.  We also traditionally dip apple slices into honey and wishing each other that “Sweet New Year.”

I used the watercolor style of the apple in Stampin’ Up’s set "Picked For You" and the "Nature's Poem" Designer Series Paper (DSP).  The apple is done is shades of Calypso Coral & Powder Pink and the background is Blackberry Bliss. I printed the sentiment in the font “Beautiful Holiday” in Blackberry Bliss colored ink on clear label material and attached it to a piece of white cardstock.
