Hello Ai Fans!
Who doesn't love a good glass of wine? This set from Art Impressions is called "Cheers To You" (#4664) and is super cute. I love that you get a stamp and matching sentiment! This adorable Gal makes a perfect wine tag to add to a Hostess gift when visiting over the Holidays! I made a matching card to go with it as well. I do apologize for the darker photos, I had a really hard time trying to photograph this and get the right lighting.
 I decided to use paper from the Echo Park The Story Of Christmas 6x6 collection. I love the Poinsettia and its a die from My Favourite Things I've had for a few years now. I added Yellow Stickles to the flower middle and Crystal Stickles to the fur on her coat.

The tag was simple to make. I cut a piece of 7 3/4" x 2 3/4" cardstock and scored it at the 2 1/2" mark. From there I cut a hole in the small section to slip over the bottle neck. Then just decorate it however you see fit.
I tried a different skin colour for a change. I got the idea from a suggested site called The Human Rainbow by the talented Sandy Allnock. I actually printed off the page and coloured all the faces up. It was a really interesting "lesson" and used colour combinations I had never thought of!
Copics Used:
Skin: E11, E33, V15 / cheeks R22
Hair: E44, E47, E49
Reds: R35, R37, R39
Greens: G24, G28
Golds: Y23, Y26, Y28
Shoes: W3, W5, W7
I bought this paper collection fro Pebbles called Winter Wonderland and have been dying to use it so I decided to make a fun version of the "Cheers To You" set. The colours are so bright and fun and very non-traditional for Christmas!
This time I put the sentiment that comes with the set on the inside of my card.
The last fun detail for this card was to add Flower Soft in the colour Peony Pink to the fur on her coat! I love how it turned out!

Thanks for sticking it out for my long post today LOL! 
Happy Friday!
