I love this sentiment...

Hello sweet bloggers,
Welcome to my latest follower - Gowri. Thanks for joining my blog - happy to see my followers growing beside my girth which is in urgent need of exercise. Lol.
This is my 20th post for this month - now that is a serious lot and am rather pleased about that.
Here is a card I have made following the sketch at
I have used Bo Bunny papers from Kaiser craft and the sentiment stamp is from Penny Black - my latest buy. The lock and key were sent to me by my dear blog buddy Terry. The green cord, bling and buttons are from my stash. Not sure whether the buttons match the bling, though. Also it is a night shot, so it is not  that brilliant.

I will also enter this card in the following challenges: - green, white and another colour - always anything goes

Below are pictures of the Chinese New Year decoration at a mall close by. I found them so pretty that I had to share them. Aleeza is there too in her school uniform...

These fans were part of the ceiling decoration - wish I had done more justice to the picture.

Catch you soon.
