Happy Chinese New Year!

Happy New Year!  It's the start of the Lunar New Year and this year is the Year of the Rabbit.  From what I have read, Rabbit years are usually calm, creative & positive, which is a welcome thing for all of us, I think.

My sweetie,  Phil & one of my best friends, Dianne, are both Rabbits.  Rabbits are said to be private & a bit reserved, but also enjoy the company of good friends.  They do need their private space.  They are usually quite calm and avoid confrontation.  That is Phil for sure!  I'm the confrontational Dragon...so I guess we're Yin & Yang there.  Rabbits are also talented & artistic, which describes both Phil & Di. 

I know my rabbit image in the card above is really a Japanese rabbit...but I've taken artistic license since I do adore that image.  It is from Hero Arts back in 2000 & is called Haiku Bunny.  The Chinese zodiac charm is from SkyBluePink, one of my favorite websites for great embellishments & unusual supplies at great prices.  Tell Queen Xina that Lady Debbie sent you!  The charm actually has Dragons on the other side, so I need to get some more to use next year in my Year of the Dragon artwork.

Here's to a happy & prosperous & extremely creative Year of the Rabbit to all!
