Our oldest son lives in Japan. He recently visited a famous stamp shop in the city of Kyoto that is well-known for it's creative stamps. The man in the stamp is Fukuzawa Yukichi, a samurai, professor and founder of Keio University (Japanese Ivy League) whose face is on the 10,000-yen bill. He is "recommending" whatever you stamp him on. The woman is laughing gently with a hand to her mouth, as was considered proper and lady-like. It says, "ho-h0-h0." I love foreign humor. I made up my own American-style captions for the two together and sent our son this thank-you card. I used Summer Sun, Very Vanilla and Basic Black cardstock with some Pink Flamingo DSP.
