And so we come to the end of this series. I absolutely love these silk embroidered flowers, don’t you? The stamps are about 5.5 x 6.5 cm in size, and most are just short of 1MB. Included in your folder will be 18 PNGs, each design with and without a dropshadow. In the end I made 9 stamps, because I wanted to do two separate Journal Tags for Tuesday; one for daytime which was Nisan 13, and one for after sunset, which was Nisan 14.

What does “Nisan” mean?

Nisan is the name of the first Jewish lunar month of the sacred calendar, corresponding to part of March and part of April.

Jesus’ death occurred on Passover, Nisan 14. The evening before he died, Jesus ate the Passover meal with his apostles and then instituted a new memorial meal to commemorate his death.

Jehovah’s Witnesses observe the Memorial after sundown on Nisan 14, according to the reckoning of the Jewish calendar that was common in the first century. The Jewish day begins at sundown and extends until the following sundown. So Jesus died on the same Jewish calendar day that he instituted the Memorial.Doodles076 Inverted

As I mentioned from the beginning of the series, this is a Special Event download, available only to those who participate. Thank you so much to all of you who have left comments and sent emails. I’ll be in touch over the next few days with your download links.

      Your mention of cards has given me an idea. Check back in a day or two for ideas about postal cancellation marks…

    Ces timbres sont magnifiques ! Je suis brodeuse et j’aime tout particulièrement le fil de soie. Ces fleurs sont merveilleuses ! Je serais vraiment très heureuse de recevoir cette collection si délicate et raffinée… comme vous ! sans doute !

      I only speak a few words of French so I had to use Babelfish to translate this: These stamps are wonderful! I am embroiderer and I particularly like the silk thread. These flowers are wonderful! I’d be really happy to receive this collection so delicate and refined… like you! no doubt!
      Bonjour Cath! Je vous remercie pour vos aimables paroles.
