I am a stay-at-home mom. I have been married to my handsome and wonderful husband for over 14 years. Right now he's battling stomach/esophagus cancer. So I do my best to craft when I can. I have two wonderful boys. My oldest, Garett, is 24 and served 5 years in the Navy. He's been home since the beginning of the year (2014). We are very proud of him. My youngest, "DJ", is 13 and in the 8th grade. I have two Border Collie mix dogs (Koda and Rugu), one Calico cat (Hydie), one orange Tabby cat (Bosley), one Tea Cup Chihuahua (Gigi...I LOVE her sooo much), a Chiweinnie (Lily....sweetest dog ever), and a Jack Russell/Chihuahua (Connor....AAALL boy).

Wine and Friends

I thought I posted this card somewhere, other than SCS, but I guess not.  So I will make this my last FWF posting this week.

I made this card for my friend that was going through the separation from her husband.  I invited her over for some hot tubbing and she was bringing the wine.  Unfortunately, that didn't work out.  Hot tub water was dead and needed to be drained.  :(  I did everything to try and clean it but it was time.  And we only run our hot tub for the winter.

SOOO....we are going to have to get together and just have some wine and maybe a video to watch.  Who knows.  LOL

I'm very pleased with how this card turned out.  The stamps I used:  Wit & Wisdom Wine and the wine glasses are from the November 2012 KOM.



  1. I am sure your friend would love this card.. :)

  2. love the use of vellum for the wine glasses!

  3. The glasses came out fantastic. Did you emboss them, or use Stazon?

    1. MaryAnne....I just used Memento Black ink. And colored in the merlot wine with a Copic marker R89

  4. This is a great card for her, I think. Love the way you layered the stamps too. :)

  5. Great card and great idea for your friend

  6. Great card, I could sure go for a glass now!
