Happy Chinese New Year & Valentine's Day!

Hi All! 

Hope you are having a fabulous weekend!  It's been a fun-family filled weekend for me, as today is CHINESE NEW YEAR as well as Valentine's day (& my nephew's bday- but that's a whole different post!).

A few weeks ago I got these two digi images that my super talented cousin drew for me- I couldn't wait to color and create cards with them- they are SO cute!

As I said before, today is Chinese New Year, and it's the year of the Tiger. I just about flipped when I saw the digi he drew...
Chinese New Year

Girl & Tiger
- Chinese girl & tiger (CQ), Gong Hay Fat Choy (Design in Squares)
- Labels 1 nestabilities, Scallop border punch (Stampin' Up!), Scallop circle punch (for flower)
- Ink: printer
- Copics: 100, C3, E000, E21, E25, E27, N3, N7, R01, R20, R46, R89, Y11, Y13, Y15, clear spica
- Other: buttons, gems, string, ribbon
Isn't she just the sweetest?! The Chinese sentiment translates to "Wishing you good fortune & prosperity" and pronounced "Gung Hay Fat Choy"!

He didn't stop there- he also drew this sweet Valentine Cupid too!
XOXO Valentine
