12- Israel

Started feeling positive. By Thursday I'd gone off the boil

I kept coming back to the star of David. But that's pretty simpleish

Then I kept coming up with Mendalas

I though they were a Buddhist thing but maybe not?!

They remind me very much of zentangles sue and Rach introduced me to ***waves***

Here is my offering I was a bit worried about this week as did kinda want to go down a religious route but though I didn't want to get it wrong. I just hope what I've done isn't offensive.

I'm a semi good catholic girl however not a church going one and not sure all my views would come up to scratch so best to keep my gob shut. This paragraph poss isn't needed n don't be surprised to come back and it's been deleted. Xxxxx

Ah, the insecurities have striked again! Israel was a hard country for me and I can see your struggles... You did great in the end! ♥
Why don't we just start drawing on Monday and call it done on Tuesday, it would save us so many doubts! :)

Hi. It's what I aim to do. Sadly with a full time job meaning I'm out of the house roughly 11-12 hours a day I don't always have the time to do that. Normally have a mad half hour to do the cards on a Thursday night. Which is also why I've stopped writting on the backs

Wonderful mandala postcard!

most religions steal one anothers iconography, so I don't think you could cause offense with your take on the star, which turned out very nice indeed didn't it?

Lol Stef...."semi good" :D Well I'm pagan, so you would struggle to offend me, and being ladies of the Victorian era my characters HAVE to be CofE lol :D That is an awful lot of work you put into the postcard design this week, beautifully done :DXXX

Lovely Mandala, like the colour combination.

Haha I choose to believe what I want but have issues of getting my head round the whole idea of it all. But it'd be an odd world if we were all the same.

Shall I let you into a secret my card took about 10 mins to draw and colour all in all and 4 days to decide what to do! Xxx
