Wine for the Holidays!

Hello... Happy Friday!  It's Friday Friends with Flair at Unity!

When you read the title of this post, you probably thought I would be recommending some wines for the Holidays... Well, it's not the case.

Let me tell you...  I bought this notepad at Target a couple of weeks ago during one of those business trips I've had lately.



I just loved the message!  You know I love wine...  the name of my blog has a reason, ok?  

Also... I recently ordered some stamps from Unity.  They have sentiments and images that are related to wine.   Yes!!!! So I combined the inspiration of the message in the pad with a Unity stamp to create this card.


I typed the message in the computer, stamped the image and colored.  
I don't have many coloring tools ...  I mean, I have a little bit of this and that... but not a lot of one type of coloring tool... Besides, I am not very good at coloring... So I combined paper piecing and coloring with copics, watercolor pencils and even a sharpie.  I finished with some glossy accents (still kind of wet in the photo), to enhance the image.

The original stamp has three little hearts above the larger wine glass in the middle, but I placed a Christmas icon there because of the message I used.




So, it's Friday!  Don't you think is a good opportunity to taste some wine today?  Cheers!

Now, seriously... I haven't bought any Christmas presents yet... not even ready with a list... and the tree is still waiting on us to get out of the box...  But all we need for Christmas is...  (besides wine)... health, family, God's blessing, and love!!!  Let's not forget about the real celebration... :)

Tks for your visit and your comments.
