I can't believe you drank that whole bottle of wine

I saw this quote on Facebook recently and thought it was adorable
 (and applied to some individuals I know -
 we won't mention names here)

It also works perfectly for the blog hop I joined this weekend over on
 Stamping With The Dragon. 
 (By the way - the CODE spelled:  STAMPING DRAGON).
   Here is the link if you want to play along.

The wine bottle and grapes image is also from them.  How cute!!!  

The idea for the grapes and/or wine actually came from MFP Speedy TV - Simple Salutations Challenge 32 - Theme of Wine/Grapes with a sentiment.

I JUST received my Spectrum Noir markers and this was the
 first time I've EVER used markers.  
I really like them, but need some practice -
 later I should probably head on over to their site and watch some videos. 

 I purchased these from Crafter's Companion and can't begin to tell you what
 great service 
(I received a $5.00 coupon for "following" their site) and
 SUPER fast shipping this company offers.  
Doing my Happy Crafter Dance!

 This shot almost looks a little distorted by I was trying to show the
 dimension on this card and the
 texture on the grapes which were spritzed with Goosebumps. 
 I printed out two images of the glass and bottle  (colored them both) 
and then cut one out and mounted it on top of the other with some foam tape.    

I used my  
Spellbinders Nestabilities 
Wavy Rectangles
 to emboss and cut all my main pieces.

Don't ya just love the purple and chartreuse - 
my color wheel tells me that they are
 Direct Complementary Harmonies
 (I learn something every day doing this :)

 Distressing with Memento LuLu Lavender ink and a little bling.

 Adding my homemade flowers
 (Cricut George and Basic Shapes Cartridge) and some ink.
I shape them with a toothpick.  
Message me if you want to learn how to do this. 
 A little time consuming, but worth the effort.
  Particularly when you live 100+ miles round trip to the closest crafts store like I do.

 The chartreuse ribbon is from a local Dollar Tree.

Wishing you a great day!
