Hannukah is soon to be over and my Hannukah cards haven't made it to the mail box.... *shame* and I just realized I didn't even wish anyone here a Happy Hanukkah! (That's what happens when you have several blogs, you get confused on what you wrote where!...)
I don't know if any of my fellow scrap-bloggers here (or lurker-readers?) are jewish but I wish you all a very Happy Hanukkah.
May the lights of this season shine upon your life all year long.
I love this Holiday and the symbolism of light.♥
Anyway, I made those 2 cards this morning. I was thinking about a friend of mine. I never met her in real life but "know" her through e-mails, phone calls or messenger for almost 3 years now (waow, time really flies!!) She has an autistic son too and when my son was about to be diagnosed I turned to an online french community and started looking for answers, that's where I "met" her. She lives in NY state and has no family around and I thought that a little holiday cheer couldn't hurt. :-)
Those are 2 "spur of the moment" cards. For the 1st one I had this idea of the frame with the saying on the paper peeking through so I went with that and the second one actually was born from a piece of yellow cardstock I fell upon, where I had tried my scallop punch (the Martha Stewart one that looks like lace) and from the spool of ribbon I had just finished with the 1st card (the cardstock semi-circle down there is the spool side).
I'm sure by now you have guessed I don't own any Hannukah stamps... ;-)
Now I better write those cards and get them to the mailbox!
