Oooh La La!

Good morning, its lovely and sunny here in Blackpool we are having glorious weather at the moment long may it continue!  Today we have a new challenge at The Paper Shelter and our theme this week is Anything But A Card! Now I have been very pushed for time these last few weeks so I decided to use on of The Paper Shelter images that has been pre coloured and went for a simple tag:


I thought this new image from The Paper Shelter was just perfect to go on a bottle of vino!  She is called Si Belle and is available here.  Paper is from Raspberry Road and I used a Spellbinders die to cut the label out.  I coloured the seam binding with Distress inks and it looks a lot better IRL not as splodgy!  I added some flowers from Wild Orchid and an Eiffel Tower charm from my stash.


I placed it on quite an old bottle of wine that my Sister's partner gave to my husband.  Her partner is German and there is a lot of rivalry between him and Dave about football. The wine is about 30+ years old but the reason he gave it to my husband is that the bin no. (I think that's what it is) is 1966 - the year England won the World Cup!!

Don't forget there is a fabulous prize available:


Please pop over to the Paper Shelter Challenge for all the details and to see the rest of the DT work there are some fabulous projects!

Thank you so much for looking I really appreciate it. Take care xx
