For today's Teapot Tuesday Challenge, we were inspired by this teapot:
Our challenge was to use flower of some sort and gold. I chose the Garden of Love stamp set by Rubber Stamp Tapestry. It is so cute with the little heart. It can be used for all sorts of occasions. I stamped my images using various VersaColor and Encore Metallic Gold inks (see recipe below). The sentiment is also from RST and you can find it here.

Joy #8: Some days I really miss my dad. For those of you that are new to my blog, he passed away last December 9, 2009. It's weird how some days you are just going along fine, and others you are really struck by the emptiness left. A lot of times it is because I start looking at pictures, and remembering what an incredible man he was and how much I miss him. I wish he could have met my son's bride. He would have loved her sweet spirit and heart. So today is a bittersweet joy. Joy that I had such an awesome dad for as long as I did, and bittersweet in that I wish he were here so I could tell him. I love you, Dad.
