The Year of the Rat

One of the holiday cards I picked up honoring the New Year. I especially liked this one with the rats on it. I am also born in the year of the rat and supposedly that means I am to have an especially lucky year. If you want to see what you are click here. It is said that rats are intelligent, imaginative and curious. In China, they say there are few poor rats. Rats have the ability to initiate new ideas and they also work hard to achieve their goals. What I find so ironic is that I am TERRIFIED of rats. They freak me out and when my daughter and son-in-law had one for a short time, I couldn't even go into that room. I love mice and gerbils but it's something about that face and tail that gives me the creeps. Hubby was born under the sign of the dog.

More card samples.

One last bunch. Going out to hubby's new favorite chicken restaurant so I'll be sure to bring the camera. Maedeup class tomorrow. I was surprised that we would have class during the biggest holiday in Korea. I guess maedeup waits for no one.

Helena: I seem to be picking up cards with every Holiday. They are just too cool. I'm amazed with all the Korean information you know!

The cards are amazing Becky. So textural... I wish our commercial cards were so cool without costing such a fortune!

Holly: These were under $1.00 US each. Can you imagine?
