New Gift Idea

Are the holidays approaching you as fast as they're coming at me?! I'm so not ready! LOL! I already have a bunch of parties I am going to and the one question that goes with all of them is "What do I bring for the hostess?" Well, how about a nice bottle of wine?! Yeah, I know, typical fall back on, "safe" gift - right?! Well how about we "buck it up a notch" and add a little gift holder to the bottle?! I used a tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers to create this little pouch of sorts. Take a look;

I used some great paper for this, the green is from "The Paper Co", the designer paper is from "My Minds Eye", the white is from SU. I simply stamped it with Stazon and colored it in with my coloring pencils! Easy peasy! Just think of it with some chocolates, which I would have put in there myself however two little mice in my house named Brian and Breanna ate it surprise there, but it would also be a great idea for a gift card to a local supermarket so they can pick out some great cheese and breads to go with it! Your hostess would love you if she got this! The stamps?! Well, you're going to have to visit The Rubber Cafe to order your own! LOL! I have more coming with this set if you can believe it! The next one will knock your socks off so stay tuned!

P.S. - not being a drinker at all, I didn't have a bottle of wine to post with this picture! I'm so glad you all have great imaginations to think that beer bottle is something a little classier! LOL!
