Sunday Stamps #55

Chinese New Year began on Monday January 23, so let's celebrate with Chinese stamps, Dragon stamps, or red stamps.

The top stamp looks similar to some bridge stamps shared by someone previously (Bob I think?) 

This festival is also know as the Spring festival in China, and lasts for 15 days.  The coming year is the Year of the Dragon in the traditional Chinese calendar.  Red is a lucky color in the Chinese tradition.  So let's have a blog hop party.  Please join in and link up your stamps, then visit some other blogs.  Thank you!

Another note:  You'll see I have registered my blog with Networked blogs, so please follow me there if that is how you like to keep up on your blogs.  I also have a Facebook page now, as Viridian61, and you can follow me there at!/pages/Viridian61/347674418583948?sk=wall
Or just search on Viridian61!

My background seems to be missing and I will try to fix it.
Linky tools has expired for now and so I will have to add your link manually.  Please leave your linky address in the comments and I will add it by hand.  I guess it is one of those days here.

that first stamp with the bridge and reflection is very pretty.

(and I rather like your blog with the plain background, but that is just me)

The plain background is OK, but I've lost all my other customizations and I don't know how to get them back - wahhh! I want to show my followers and my Sunday Stamps badge. Oh well, might as well go all the way and get a brand new template ((Sigh))

...OK, 10 minutes later, the background is OK and my customizations are back - I'm going to leave it be for now.

I am not seeing your background now, but I actually like plain backgrounds better.

If you are interested in zodiac stamps and cards, there are a bunch on the Postcard A La Carte blog

P.S. Is there a theme for next week?

Bob Scotney said...

I don't remember that bridge stamp - now I'll have to check.

Your page says that linksy has expired so I've put my link here:

I also can't see your background, just your header is as it's always been...

Here is the link to my blog:

Wonderfully atmospheric view of the bridge. On the plus side of loosing the background it loads much quicker:-)
The linky is still not available so here is my blog link:

How very odd. I could have sworn I'd commented earlier. I wonder if I've left it on someone else's blog.

I love the first stamp of the bridge but I find almost all Chinese stamps are attractive, very nearly as good as Finland's ones.

My dragon stamps

Thanks for adding the link. May the rest of the dragon year run more smoothly; dragons are supposed to be lucky for new beginnings.
