This weeks challenge from Faith was titled “Vino”.  My bad : (  ~  I did not make the post time for her weekly challenge  ~sniff sniff~.  I colored in the image using my PhotoShop Elements program and then cut it out and used dimensionals to pop it up on the card.  I also used my CI Paints Fairy Dust on the bottle to make it ‘appear’ as if the water in the bottle is shimmering.  This is only my 2nd time using the CI Pants and I am really liking them as well.  Thanks again Kendra for ‘turning’ me on to these – they are AWESOME!  I also used my Fuzzy Fun Flock again on my flower- the soft purple color is just wonderful on this image.  Not my best work – but I think it turned out pretty well.

Please do stop on in and check Faith out at  she has an awesome site and really great images to work with!


BUT….I will make it in time for the weekly challenge over at

If you have not done so – stop on over to Kathy & Kristine’s site.  They work along with Faith’s images and well ….it’s a Double Delight!!  Embossing was the challenge this time. I used the Cuttlebug D’vine Swirl on the white paper and scalloped the edges.  Then on the green strip,  I used my Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder.

I’m still not super happy with how my card turned out. Something is still ‘itching’ away at me that is not 110% happy with it.  But, I do have to say… is mucho better then where I was just a short time ago.  Again – comments are welcome – I enjoy hearing them and hope to see you back here real soon.

Be safe until me meet again~
