Gung Hei Fat Choy!
Happy Chinese New Year! This is the year of the Golden Pig. I don't have any stamps of Golden Pigs (the only pig stamps I have are of two pigs kissing.....for Valentine's Day...) But, I was inspired by the new Basic Grey (Scarlet's Letter) line to create a Bargello card. As I was piecing this together, I was starting to see the "Asian" flavor coming through; and that's how the theme for this card developed. Crane stamps are by Curtis Uyeda. Asian coin is by Karen Foster (given to me by my lovely friend, Mary Rogers. Hi Mary!) .....and....I received a wonderful surprise the other day. I found out that four of my cards will be appearing in the Spring 2007 Stamper's Sampler Take Ten Issue. It's due to hit the newstands on March 1st, but I've noticed that it's already available at Barnes & Noble (in Omaha, anyway). I had sent in artwork last Fall. This motivates me to send in more of my work! I'll upload the cards once March 1st rolls around.
