I Heart Mail

This week's inspiration photo from Hand Stamped Sentiments is all about hearts. What struck me the most about the photo was all the envelopes in the background - they are all white, save one. A stampin' friend lent me her mailbox stamp from Stampin' Up, and I used the confetti heart punch from Martha Stewart to create a plethora of floating hearts coming out of the mailbox. The sentiment is from the dollar bin at Michaels - and I must say it's true that you get what you pay for. The stamp is mounted crooked on the wood block, so it takes a bit of practice to stamp it straight! We made a bunch of these at card club to send to our homebound members in February.
