Eid Mubarak to you all. Eid is a time of celebration for the Muslims who are celebrating the end of the month of Ramadan. It is a Muslim Holiday that involves many visiting friends and family, sharing gifts and children are given new clothes to wear on this day by their parents. This can be celebrated over a few days in some cultures but the first day after Ramadan is the main day of celebration. Our family have all been busy making lovely Eid cakes which is a tradition in our family, this year we will be sharing these with all or friends and family (both Muslim and Non-Muslim).
In the past I have never really had the opportunity to celebrate Eid fully. As a revert and because my in-laws live abroad I have only celebrated Eid at home with my husband and children. This year however, I have met some lovely new Muslim friends and my children and I will be spending time with them for Eid so I am really looking forward to it inshallah.
As a crafter, the photograph above shows a card that I designed (my son designed actually!) which I will be giving to my friends on this blessed day IA.
To make this card, I bought some ready cut cream cards and envelopes from a local craft shop at quite a cheap price. My son (aged 13) designed the front of the card using Photoshop and I simply printed them out onto the card. It is really easy to place these cards into the majority of printers, my printer is just a basic Epson printer, for caution I normally only place one card at a time - but I don't think that is necessary - just me being cautious.
