Look what I got yesterday...

from my dear hubby.Yesterday was Tu' Be 'Av, festival of love, also known as (Hag Ha-Ahava), similar to Valentine's Day.We had dinner with our friends at Tavlin a dairy restaurant .Tavlin means spice .There is a spice store right next to this restaurant and the photos of spices on my blog are taken there.

I have been working lately on an album for my DH's commander and that's why I haven't had time to make any cards and neither to update my blog .I'll be finishing the album today so I can get back to card making.

I've been tagged "Bumber tagged"

by Flossie
I copied the rules from her blog as so I'll get them right here.

The rules are simple
1) Send ONE card to someone you know within 7 days! (family, friends, associates, cyber people, etc.) ANYONE!!! Doesn't matter who... just do it. Can you imagine the smile on their face when they open their mailbox and see a card from you?2
2) Tag (yes, I know, but this is the only way to spread this) 5 people you know to do the same thing (Tag means tag them to send their own cards to their own people
3) Proudly display this on your blog to spread a little sunshine and pass it on.

That is it, isnt' this wonderful, have a few people in mind that I will be sending some cards out to so please do the same, smiling faces are so wonderful. Ok these are the people I am tagging, hopefully we can circle the globe with these RAKs' if you have already been tagged you will just have to send out more cards, but I did try to check first to make sure you were not

Breakfast at Ein Kerem,Jerusalem

We had breakfast today at Ein Karem Jerusalem in a place called Anashim,which means People.The weather was beautiful not too hot at all.
Right next to the place we ate there is a nice ice cream place and I like how it looks outside so I had to take a picture.

Phone in the pocket !

This card is for my cousin ,who's birthday is next week.
I had this pocket in my stash and I have just waited to use it.The phone has pop ups, but it dosn't really show here.I think I'll frame the card cause it's pretty big.

Don't forget to tag 7 others!!!Have fun!!

Happy 4th of July!!

I know it is a day early,but never mind.This is a card I made for our good friend who celebrates his 50th birthday tomorrow.He is a big U.S fan and born on the 4th of July so I thought this would make the perfect card for him.
The paper is by "Me and my big Ideas" and the stitching on the number is my own doodling.Let me know what you think!

Today is Elad's birthday ,but he is in the army and won't be able to come home .We did go to see him yesterday with two cakes so he could share with his friends.HAPPY BIRTHDAY ELAD!!!!We love you!
