Ta Very Muchly

At CES this week , our lovely challenge host, Donna, would like you to

Raise Your Glasses

we want to see your drink related card/projects.

Ahhhh drink - another of my favourite subjects :-) 
Actually I'm a total lightweight - not like my girls, who can drink any guy they know under the table - glad that their expensive University education wasn't wasted!! ;-)

I have gone for a little wine and chocolate thank you set.

 I just LOVE this Prima, Printery paper and I had to take a deep breath before I cut into it. Even then, I really didn't want to cover it up too much, so for my card I used a patchwork design.
Emma has some gorgeous papers in store right now - but be quick - they are selling out FAST!

I used a Letraset Fineliner pen to add some faux stitching and distressed the edges with black chalk.

The Prima flowers and card candy centres were sprinkled with Glamour Dust.
I stamped the 'Thanks' onto a piece of cream card, cut it into a ribbon shape at one end and added a couple of black pearls.

The treat holder was made following Christina Fischer's tutorial at Splitcoaststampers
I kept this pretty plain too - using my nesties to create a frame for the 'just for you' stamp, adding a little more glamour dust, some ribbon and a fancy corner.

I know it's back to school week for a lot of you, so hopefully you will have a little time to join in the challenge.
Don't forget you could win a £10 voucher (excl p&p) to spend at Crafty Emma's.

and grab yourself a bargain.
