Some New Year's cards

Good evening, sweets!
I'm done with Christmas cards this year, most of them sent (thanks goodness), but I still lacked of a few New Year's cards for my Japanese friends. Now, these are tricky, provided that one wants to stay relatively true to tradition, as they would have an image of an animal that happens to be the emblem of the coming year.
I freaked out a bit, when I found out that 2012 is the Year of Dragon. I thought to myself, no way I would have a dragon stamp around. Then I remembered the "Puff-Heart Dragon" from Whiff Of Joy... what a relief! :)
I didn't ink up the puffy hearts though, for any of my cards, so that the smaller image would suit the layouts better.


Supplies: cardstock: recycled kraft, PTI (Ripe Avocado), white; paper: October Afternoon; stamps: Whiff Of Joy (Puff-Heart Dragon), The Craft's Meow (Happy New Year); ink: Memento (Tuxedo Black); Copics; Nestabilities Picot Edge Circles; Liquid Pearls (Platinum Pearl); glitter glue; buttons; felt: MFT; alpha stickers: American Crafts; cotton ribbon

The colours come from JUGS115, and the sketch from SSSC148:

Another one, in a similar colour scheme:


Supplies: cardstock: recycled kraft, PTI (Simply Chartreuse), Canson (deep red), DCWV (dark green), white, silver; paper: October Afternoon; stamps: Whiff Of Joy (Puff-Heart Dragon), The Craft's Meow (Happy New Year); ink: Memento (Tuxedo Black); black pen; Copics; Nestabilities Circles/Lacey Circles; Cuttlebug embossing folder (Textile); star die: MFT Die-Namics; button

This time I combined the Card Patterns sketch 146, with cQc#116:

I'll see you (hopefully) tomorrow! Mwah,
