Where are you, Spring?

You know that song by Faith Hill, “Where are you Christmas”? Bit optimistic to hope for Spring in February, I know, but I’m just so fed up with winter & cold weather…

This is the first time I’ve inked up this sweet stamp “Laying Nora” by C.C. Designs. Using her also brought back some sweet memories; I bought her 1,5 years ago when we were on vacation in Hawaii. It was a very hot day and we had been in Honolulu’s China Town and done some shopping at the fish market. On our way back to Waikiki Beach, we stopped at a crafts store, so that I could feed my appetite for stamps. My husband wasn’t too impressed though, waiting for me as he had two live lobsters crawling around in his backpack. :-)

I paired Nora with the Magnolia background “Tulip Walkway”.
