DT Challenge: Eat, drink and be merry

ihp1209 This month for the IHP DT Challenge we’re using the new My Mind’s Eye Be Loved and Love Me Do kits to do some sort of eat, drink and be merry project.  I wasn't quite ready to dive into Valentine’s Day yet even though that is what these kits are intended for.  So, for my project I altered a bottle of wine that could be used as a New Year’s gift or really any gift!  It’s yummy blackberry wine from a winery in Lancaster, PA.  YUMMO!  And really, what’s better than wine for an eat, drink, be merry theme?

I wrapped the bottle with a piece from Love Me Do using i {stick} papers.  Then I used my long rectangle Nesties to make the center tag and stuck a Zva celebrate gem saying on it.  Lastly I made a cheater bow using the red faux suede ribbon.  This is SUCH a quick project.  Too bad it isn’t Friday or this would SO be my Five Minute Friday project!  *grin*


Here is a close-up of the gems. 

Thanks for stopping by today!  Don’t forget the 15% sale ends on the 21st! 

Be sure to stop by the rest of the team today to see their projects!

Tracy (check around 10am EST)

KATE! It just could not get any more PERFECT than this! Mmm...sounds so delicious too! I think you'd better give it away soon or it might not make it! ;)

This is so fun Kate! And such a great idea. Except that we usually only buy wine for ourselves. But I just might have to GIVE a bottle now instead.
