Can you say Happy New Year... in Chinese :-)

Finally got to use the new stamps!
But I haven't really had much time to play today, as apart from it being Chinese new year, it's obviously also Valentine's day, and I do have a honey or two to think about...

Actually tho, i've had a lovely day. Our treat was to see Avatar, which we absolutely LOVED! and boy do I want one of those swishy tails... and erm, I have to say, I want it now! Carl thinks it's so funny that I was completely fascinated by the tails all the way through the film... but I just thought it really clever how they managed to convey how the Na'vi character's were feeling by the activity of their tails... and I don't think that's particularly funny at all. Having owned cats all my life, i'm used to judging their mood by their tail movements and have managed to avoid being mauled many a time by an aggravated cat just by watching for that angry flick which comes nano seconds before the strike lol :-) Any cat person will tell you that!

We've also cooked (and scoffed) a massive roast beef dinner and very naughty gooey brownies.. yum yum... and drunk wine, lots of wine, and well... just done the whole valentines thing, as you do ;-) xx

But I managed to squeeze in time to make one little card. It's a Happy New Year one for the Chinese New Year, which incidently, this year is the year of the Tiger.

The translation for these words comes from Google Translate which is a fab lil tool to have around

and the card itself was inspired by papertake challenge #34

Cherish the rest of your valentines day - and remember to enjoy yourself... as the old song's later than you think ;-) xxx
