Life's Big Question FMS#311

When looking for some fresh inspiration, look for a sketch. I saw this one by Jen B. one of the design team for Freshly Made Sketches and knew it would be perfect for an idea I was playing with. I've linked to FMS so you can pop over and see all the variations on the sketch that are there.

Wine is my theme for this card, and I'm a bit lucky at the moment with 3 great stamp sets current and supporting this theme. Mediterannean Moments, Half Full and Tuscan Vineyard have all contributed at least one image.

A scene from Mediterannean Moments has been stamped onto the wooden centre panel. The wine bottle is from Half Full and a luscious bunch of grapes from Tuscan Vineyard. Images have been coloured using the recently introduced Stampin' Blends.

 A wine glass from Half Full and a corkscrew from Tuscan Vineyard decorate the inside along with some witty words. Five For All was my choice of sentiments, I've used 4 out of 5 of them now. They're just a tad funny, and I like this one - although you may have to pick your target!!!  'Is this the birthday when you start asking LIFE'S BIG QUESTIONS?' and inside "Like WHY did I walk into this room?' Who hasn't done that once or twice?


Any orders in my online shop with the Host code receive a gift from me in the post. Since November is my birthday month, I am adding a handmade birthday card as well, for you to send to someon else. 


  1. What a lovely card! Love the background and the colouring! Thanks for joining us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!

  2. The wine and grapes look terrific against the woodgrain background! Great birthday card! Glad you joined us at FMS!
