two steps backwards. That seemed to be the sequence of my day yesterday. It was very very hot and
humid. And as I was complaining to my 4x6ers I was sweating, no ladylike persperation here, it was sweating, but Betsy (not the Christmas Projects One but the 4x6er one) sent me a note saying that in her part of the world they call it 'glistening' ... so I was glistening bright and clear :)
the bin shows the steps backwards but I am not going to show you those.
This is the step forward. It is my latest Postcard. It is for Valentines Day, but with a difference.
by way of explaination it is Chinese New Year on February 14th.
Red is considered lucky
The Character means Spring and is often used in New Year Greetings
2010 is the Year of the Tiger
3 coins tied with a red ribbon are also lucky
I was hoping to finish this to send to No1son who lives in Taiwan at the moment, and also to make one for The Scot instead of a Valentines Card. I don't usually send him one but buy him a Chocolate Heart.
