Color Throwdown #324

Hello everyone,

I am back from the warm country about two weeks ago but as usual, it took awhile before my mojo is back again.  If I am still not too late, I would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year!

I am starting off this year with a Valentine card for a card drive which is organised by Winter Wonderland and using the colour inspiration from Color Throwdown.

The banner set is from SU.  As this card is heading to the hospital, there is nothing of buttons, glitters, sequins or anything that can be pulled out as it might pose as a choking hazard!

Besides visiting Malaysia this year, we flew to Krabi, Thailand for a couple of days for snorkeling and rafting.  Although, the flying was only an hour, the weather was surprisingly different from Malaysia as the humidity in Krabi was lower which made it very pleasant to walk around.  Here are a couple of photos from Krabi...

Krabi is a small town and as I understood that there were only three traffic lights and I spotted this zebra crossing!

"Take Away" boats along the coast

At a waterfall and our feet were "cleansed" by the fishes!

Thank for dropping by and have a great day!

So nice to have you back, Lai-Yoke! I love your card; the colors are great. And, the photos are so nice - sure would love to be where it's warm and toasty and, yes, even humid about right now. It is freezing here and I am not liking it!! LOL

Happy New Year to you, too!
