Instead of catching fish, Yoko is busy playing with an origami crane. I'm not sure why, but this reminds me of those fishing games we used to play as a child at our school's fun fair. I think they are now called carnival day, but when I was a small kid, it was called fun fair. Since we are on the subject... I just want to know... was our school the only one that had a pocket lady???? I find that really hard to believe, but I found out when planning my daughter's 1st birthday that no one else knew what the pocket lady was. If you know what that is- please let me know. I'm dying to find out if it existed beyond Enchanted Lake Elementary. (Les and Laura- I know you guys know).
OK back to the card... Here's a close up of Yoko... and for those of you who know a bit about Japanese names, you might think Yoko means "beautiful child", which it does, but in this case I found out from my mother-in-law that the kanji used in my sister-in-law's name means "ocean", so her name Yoko means "Ocean child". How perfect is that? I knew there was a reason I picked this stamp for her name!
So now that you've read through this incredibly long post, you deserve a reward! How's about a little candy? Look at the post about Ayako for more details on the rules, but post your comment to enter on THIS post for your chance to win Yoko. Oh- and tell me if you know what Pocket Lady is! Remember, everytime we introduce a new image for this 2nd release, that's another chance for you to win one of our stamps! Good Luck!
