Spring Moony Night

Here's one of the originals from Sweet Pea Stamps artist ching-chou kuik called Spring Moony Night (Plate #22).  This image is just stunning, I had some gorgeous ribbon with a whole rainbow of glittery sequin colors and I was looking for the perfect image to match.  I think this image really does the trick.
I added a wonderful saying "All the flowers of all the tomorrows are in the seeds of today. Indian Proverb" (Plate #8).  I just love the forlorn look on this beautiful mermaid's face.  It's as if she is already imagining the beautiful flowers of tomorrow.  Perhaps she is holding out that lamp and awaiting the arrival of her lover to come home.

Be sure to check the Wed Posting to see who won the Sweet Pea stamps--all the winners prizes are being mailed today:  Nataliya, Luanne, Bhawana (to Priya) and Rebecca.   ALSO there is blog candy on the Tues posting, so if you haven't sign up for that, go back to the May 1st posting and read about it.
