You Had Me At Merlot . . . Random Fun Challenge!




In early November, I spent an amazing long weekend in San Francisco and Napa with my Women Who Wine (that’s “wine,” not “whine”!  LOL) group.  Oh my goodness, we had such a great time!!  One of the women is a travel agent and is so incredibly organized and generous with her expertise.  She planned the entire trip for us, and let’s just say she knows her stuff.  So I wanted to thank her for all her efforts in putting together a weekend that I will not soon forget.

You Had Me At Merlot

Enter the Moxie Fab World: 365 Cards Week:  Random Fun Challenge!!  The challenge is to create a project featuring mustaches, buttons or an alcoholic beverage – fun, right?!!  First of all, let me just tell you that the special issue 365 Cards is AH-MAZING!!  There are so many awesome projects that are seriously so clever and unique.  So, when you get a chance, you so need to add it to your collection.  It’s really one of the best issues I’ve seen so far.  And, Cath at the Moxie Fab World Blog has several super fun challenges that were inspired by that special issue.  And I’ll be darned if I’m not gonna play along, because we all know how much I love Cath’s challenges!!


STAMPS:  Drinks In A Row (Savvy Stamps), Fine Wine (A Muse Studio)
INK:  Blackberry (A Muse Studio); VersaMark (Tsukineko)
PAPER:  Rich Razzleberry (Stampin’ Up!), Snow (Bazzill Basics)
ACCESSORIES:  Rich Razzleberry Satin Ribbon (Stampin’ Up!), Frame Die (PTI), Buttons (PTI), Self-Adhesive Gems (Kaiser Craft), Canvas Impression Plate (PTI)


I love it when a challenge actually coincides with an occasion that I need to create a card – don’t you?!  The sweet lady that planned our trip loved the card, so that made me happy.  Thanks for another fun challenge, Cath!!  And thank YOU for stopping by today.


Before I go, I just thought I’d remind you that the current CAS-ual Fridays Challenge is a TWO week challenge, so you have until next Wednesday to play along with us.  Nice, right?!!  You can find all the details of the current challenge HERE.  I also want to wish each and every one of you a very blessed Thanksgiving holiday.  I am so very thankful for all of you.
