Wine Improves...You!

Happy Friday!
I hope your week has gone well! You ever have one of those weeks where you can't tell if you're coming or going? I hate it when that happens. It's good to be busy, but not so good to be crazy busy. Maybe I'm just going crazy. When I use my favorite phrase around here "You're driving me crazy!" the Husband always says "short trip". Actually my second favorite saying is "never let someone drive you crazy if you know it's within walking distance". For me, it's always within walking distance. Maybe I could use a glass or three of wine. Now that sounds like a plan! 

My card today features some brand new images. Aren't these fun? I love this snarky greeting! And I definitely know a couple of people who would get a kick out of it. It goes perfectly with the glass/wine bottle image and the grapes finish up the new trio. I started by inking an embossing folder with green ink before embossing it onto a white piece of card stock. Since it's only a border I only inked the border so the middle would stay white. I used a lt green Copic to help fill in around the embossing before stamping my images and coloring them with Copics. The grapes were fussy cut and added w/ a Copic tinted bow. I added a few gems for a little sparkle and these are the Copics I used.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend and go ahead and Wine a little (or a lot) if you want, lol.
