Game for a laugh at Sweet Stampin'!

Good morning! Hope the sun is shining where you are, but if it's not brighten up your day by checking out the new challenge at Sweet Stampin' - humour! I promise you the DT have made some fab cards that will put a smile on your face!
My card is not funny.... I take my wine very seriously.... but I got away with it this time ;)! The image is one I was lucky enough to win from Handmade Harbour. I printed it twice, coloured the border of one image with my copics. I then coloured the glass of the second image and covered it with glossy accents, when dry I cut it out and curved it a bit, then stuck it on top of the first image with pinflair glue to give the card some dimension.  The image was then matted onto black card and some toning dps. The 'cheers' is die cut from a scrap of DP.
Thanks for taking the time to look! Now do yourself a big favour and pop over to Sweet Stampin', it'll make your day! Why not join us this week, we would love to see what makes you smile... all we ask is that your creation is humorous (we love a good laugh!!!!) and that there is some stamping on it somewhere!  You could be lucky and win a prize from one of our lovely sponsors, Crafts u Love or Cuddly Buddly.
Have a great weekend!

  9. This is just fabulous, love it, the papers and sentiment are great.
    You could always use the wine glass with the following wording...

    I once read about a Lady who made ice cubes out of left over wine,
    I never knew that was possible.......

    On the inside..... To have left over wine that it!

  17. This is a great card and someone has leftover wine? Why? Adorable card, love the image and colors. The challenge at The Paper Shelter is Punches AND Dies, however. Thanks for listing what you used on the card and I read a diecut was used, but don't see that a punch was used. There's still time to add a punch to the card or enter a different card and we'd love to have you be in the drawing! Hugs, Gail DT

  18. I love the way you assembled the wine glass! Awesome card! Thanks for joining us at Digi Makeover!
