New House Party

Hi there everyone....
My youngest daughter is moving out soon.
She will be starting her 2nd year at Uni and is moving
in to a new house.
She is sharing with 1 other girl and 3 boys,
so I made this little gift as a house warming present for them
and tried not to make it too girly.

For the card I followed a great sketch over at
Stampin' for the Weekend.
Pop on over and check them out -
they are a fab challenge blog with lots of brilliant work form their DT.

Card Recipe:
Digital Stamp - Dustin Pike, coloured with whispers pens
and added glossy accents.
Design Paper - DCWV, Nana's Nursery, Baby Girl
'Party' stamp - My sentiments exactly, Adrienne's.
I made the other text up on my comp.

I made a small tag for the Jack Daniels,
using the same design paper
and again made the text up on the comp.
I wrapped some paper round the cokes and added another
Dustin Pike image.

I know the pics aren't great,
I really must practice my camera skills.
It's on my long list of things to do!!

Have a good weekend.
