Happy Hannukah/Chanukah - Operation Write Home

Hi Everyone.

happy Wednesday.  I hope you are all having a great week.

Some of you may remember that I asked that we include some Hannukah, Kwanzaa, and Spanish language cards for this holiday Operation Write Home card drive.

I made a couple of Hannukah cards.  I wanted to share those with you tonight.  Now, if you want to see some really special Hannukah cards you need to visit next week when I showcase Beth's Operation Write Home cards.  Her cards were amazing.

I decided to use the clean and spare lines of the Israeli flag as my inspiration.  Of course, keeping with the blue and white theme.





On a personal note:  I have two straight weeks alone with my honey... now how cool is that?  It's so rare that we get to spend time together these days.... never mind two whole weeks.  So, I intend to make the absolute most of it!

The outside furniture, the fountain and all other weather sensitive things have been brought into the garage, where they will hibernate for winter.  I must admit.. I am really waiting for that first snow fall.  I always find it exciting.  It really does bring out the childhood wonder for me.  But then... I get the same way when I see my first crocus in spring... and the first sighting of the hummingbird in summer... and the first orange leaf of fall :-)

Prayers tonight for those of you who need a little lift today.

Don't forget - smile at a stranger - it may change their life.
