Namaste`


Well I finally have managed to get Beate's weekend sketch challenge done for this week ... I normally like to do it on Saturday, but this week I was busy with other things.

This is a little MFTeaser ... the stamps used here are from one of the new sets which will be released on Wednesday 6th February by My Favorite Things over at SCS. This is a yoga themed set called "Serenity Now" .... not being someone who knows a lot about yoga ... I had no idea what Namaste`meant, which is the greeting I used on this card .... so I decided to look it up.

Namaste` is pronounced "Nam-a-stay" ... there seems to be a few different interpretations ... this is one I found .


Namaste is an Indian expression used as a greeting or upon parting, by putting the palms of the hands together in prayer position. It means, “I honor the Spirit in you which is also in me.”

This, of course, is also a way of saying, “I recognize that we are all equal.”
