An Irish Toast

This stamp is an old one but NBUS, so I was delighted to bring it out for the challenge at CASology: Week #229 TOAST. There’s plenty of Irish ancestry in my genes…

I think it’s most suitable for good wishes on an engagement or wedding, or perhaps a pregnancy – a good new beginnings card at any rate.

My wish for today:
May your cup overflow with
health and happiness

Also entered for Time Out’s New Beginnings Inspired by Words Challenge: ‘With each sunrise we are given a chance for a new beginning’

Sounds a bit like an Irish blessing in itself…

    Oh, Helen, this is beautiful! I love how that rich gold arc mimics the shape of the chalice! So fitting for the tone and feel of this card and such a fitting sentiment for the cue. Wonderful in every way! So glad you joined us at CASology this week, and a very happy New Year to you too!
