Happy Chinese New Year and check me out!

Happy Chinese New Year, the year of the dragon.  To celebrate there was some festivities in town, drumming, ribbon dancing, chopstick lessons (!) and Lion dancing.

The Lion dance is usually performed as a ceremony to scare away evil spirits and to summon luck and fortune.

We had a lovely sunny (but v. cold) day so they did it outside, they danced for at least 10 mins throwing sweets and water at the crowds as they danced, a fabulous display.

When I got back home my subscription copy of Craft Stamper magazine was on the door mat, and look.....

Yep, there is the blue Christmas card I made my hubby in full technicolour chuffed am I?  I did a chuff dance around the kitchen!  The piece was inspired by Kate Cranes piece (the orange picture in the corner) and used a stampotique stamp I bought from the artful splodger when I was at the NEC, such a great stamp.

Anyway, I'm off to stare at the magazine page for a bit longer!!!
Happy Crafting
