Sister Stamps Release #10 - Chinese Zodiac - Horse

Welcome back to Day 2 of the Sister Stamps Release #10, Chinese Zodiac images.  The second image being released is the Year of the Horse.  Here's an altered paper bag I created using some washi tape, IAR flowers, Bo Bunny Serenity paper and Prima letter stickers.

As with the Snake, I didn't know anything about Horse people.  Here are some of their characteristics:  "Horse people are extemporaneous and quick-witted. They are quite intelligent and use their practicality to their advantage in their business and personal lives. Their sharpness makes them quick to pick up new skills and are able to handle many tasks at one time. However, this ambition can be harmful because Horse people often don’t finish what they start for fear of missing out on the next big challenge.  Horses are trustworthy, friendly and open-minded. They are good friends to have and will always be honest with you. Although they are good confidants, Horse people do enjoy their alone time and are usually independent people. They can struggle with obstinance and self-centeredness, which can lead to a flare of the temper if they don’t get their way. Usually, after an episode or temper-tantrum a Horse can feel remorse, yet not all people will be able to forgive their reaction."  Here's a close-up of my sweet Horse.  Isn't she beautiful?  Now why did I call the Snake a "he" and this Horse a "she"?  Hehehe ...     

Again, be sure to stop by these blogs and show them some love:  Patti, Eunice and Laura.  And of course our fearless leader, Jenny Thanks so much for stopping by today and don't forget -- the official release date of the Year of the Snake and Year of the Horse stamps is tomorrow, December 1, 2012.  I also would like to thank Jenny for asking me to join the other guest designers on this fantastic release.  Be sure to stay tuned for the rest of the Chinese Zodiac images to be released.  You won't be disappointed!  Until next time, take care.

Sister Stamps Release #10 - Chinese Zodiac - Snake

Hey everyone! Hope you're having a great week. Are you ready for another FAB Sister Stamps Release? If you've been following the Sister Stamps blog, then you already know what the first two Chinese Zodiac images are! I was so happy when Jenny asked if I could help with this special Chinese Zodiac Release. For my first project, I decided to make a calendar using the Year of the Snake stamp.

Since I didn't know what characteristics "Snake" people had, I decided to google it.  Here's just a little of what I found:  "The Snake is the intuitive, introspective, refined and collected of the Animal Signs. They are attractive people who take cries with ease and do not become flustered easily. They are graceful people, exciting and dark at the same time. Contemplative and private, the Snake is not outwardly emotional. They can appear cunning and reticent and works very modestly in the business environment. The Snake will plot and scheme to make certain things turn out exactly as they want them to. They are not great communicators and can become quite possessive when they set their minds on achieving the interest of a partner."  Interesting, huh?  Here's a close up of the Year of the Snake stamp.  He's so cute!

Besides the FAB Jenny, there are three very talented ladies who are also guest designers for this Chinese Zodiac release.  Please be sure to stop by their blogs and say hello to:  Patti, Eunice, and Laura!

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you'll be back tomorrow for my second project, using the Year of the Horse stamp.  Just a couple more days until you can get your own Chinese Zodiac stamps!  Until next time, take care.
