Happy New Year

Chinese New Year that is!

I love all things oriental as I was lucky enough to live in Hong Kong as a teenager.  Chinese New Year is nearly upon us, this year is the year of the sheep.  I don't have a sheep for you but I do have a Mouseloft mini kit of a fan that I have stitched.

I used a Hunkydory A4 card from their Eastern Promise topper kit and folded it in half.  The sentiment is from the same kit. I put the cross stitch on a piece of blue metallic paper and gold card and added gems to the corners. 

A couple of blue feathers underneath and some blue paper flowers with gems finish the card.

So kung hei fat choi (or happy new year) to you all, I will be off to enjoy a very nice chinese meal with traditional lion dance at the Beijing Palace restaurant - yum!
