Cheer Up, my Friend...

Stamp with Fun - Challenge #44

Today is the 1st day of February, Chinese New Year is drawing near, just less than 2 weeks. So far I have not prepared anything yet for this yearly event including the Chinese New Year Card...what a shame right.

Anyway I had prepared this non-traditional Chinese New Year card for my best friend who is currently far away from me. I choose this rubber stamp for is to cheer her up as this little girl wearing a very colourful dress. I want her to have a colourful life and not always in black and white or just grey.

I have a message for her: "when you are down, you are not always down, good things will come to you soon".

This stamp is from Penny Black 1998 series call Friendly Chat. Penny Black has lots of nice stamp from 1998 and thanks to JDA in helping to collect the series as many as possible.

I used green as base colour cause this is one of my little girl friend's favourite colour. The paper flowers are from Hero Arts, and pattern paper is from Cosmo Cricket, is a two-sided paper.

I hope I can post this in time for her and I wish her a Happy Chinese New Year, a Tiger year with power.

Cheers my friend.
