Happy Chinese New Year Blog Hop

 

Welcome to the Chinese New Year Blog Hop! I'm so glad you could join us. The Year of the Snake officially begins on Saturday, February 10th so be sure to wish all your Chinese friends longevity, happiness, wealth and good fortune during this two-week festival!


I want to personally thank Emily for asking me to illustrate something special for this Hop.
 Here is the digital I made for you all to have for this special hop.. just click on the photo  to save it to your computer. Then all you need to do is size it either in photo shop or print it off in your pictures.. I usually do this 3.5 x5  and you can print 4 of them at a time. great fun.
 
Here is my illustrated image..
 let's go ahead and call her
Emily..
here is the sentiment.
here is the cute little gift tag I made using Emily.. great for those special people this
Chinese New Year.  Hope you have lots of great fun using her. .
