Our teapotter cards this week are flooding the Madison, AL mailbox of Dorothea. She is Kathleen Lammie's mother & recently re-diagnosed w/ cancer. We hope to cheer her up w/ inspirational cards.
I did CAS this week, using soft colors & stamps from Seaside Stamping. The inside is the Irish Blessing. The dove stamp smears in the middle but I don't try to fix that b/c it is heart shaped.
Thanks for stopping by to take a peek.

That is one lovely stamp! It's such a strong graphic that all it needs is a simple setting.
When I have stamps that pick up ink in the middle, I take a knife to the stamp and cut the centre bit out ;-). But yes - it looks like a heart and if you hadn't said, I would have thought it was part of the stamp!!
