Hey there! How ya doin?
Things have been hoppin at our house as we are adding two decks and a garage this spring, my daughter is a senior and we have all that stuff to enjoy and my nephew is getting married (holy cow am I getting old).  My daughter and I attended his fiance's wine themed bridal shower this past weekend and I wanted to show the card and wine bottle deco I made. 

The floral tag was a stamp available in the now expired spring mini catalog from Stampin up. I missed the deadline to order the actual stamp but did you know that SU has a whole, huge digi section! It is awesome. I got the stamp and some really pretty vintage digi paper (actually a whole digi kit) for less than 10.00.  Having it as a digi stamp allowed me to personalize the center part.  And don't think you can't change the stamp outline color cause you can, just check out THIS tutorial by Mari  Koegelenberg.  I changed it from the basic black the digi stamps come in to a vintage brown, printed on cream card stock and colored the flowers with Copics.  Seriously, if you haven't tried digi, you should. It opens up a whole new dimension in your crafting arsenal.

Just wanted to wish all of you celebrating a HAPPY EASTER!
I made my kids a couple of felt peeps to put in their baskets along with some real ones.  Hope you have a great day!

I can't take credit for coming up with this idea as I saw several in my web travels. I thought it was pretty cool so I made one as an Easter treat box. I have a tutorial on how it was made over at THE HYBRID CHICK.
