Merry Drinks


Whoop whoop!  I just discovered that over at ColourQ I am Co-Colour Queen with the fabulous Jenny!  And then I found out that I won some Unity goodies from the Friends With Flair blog hop!  I was worried what the day would bring when it started with Jem stealing half my breakfast but after all this good news even he is forgiven!  :)  
My card today is an entry for Jay Gee's Nook's latest challenge to use holiday stamps to make non-holiday cards.  I'm hoping to give this challenge another go at some point and use some actual holiday images but for now I'm using this holiday sentiment from Hero Arts.  It's from a set called, appropriately, Get Merry and is a 2010 release.  I thought the sentiment would work perfectly for a boozy birthday card and used it for one of the girls at work.  
Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill Basics, (Melon Mambo)  Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Drinks from Cheers to You) Stampin' Up, (Sentiment from Get Merry) Hero Arts
Ink:  (Memento Tuxedo Black) Tsukineko
Impression Plate:  (Sunshine ) PTI

Is there anything you can't win right now??!! Seriously, your work is amazing. Just last night, I showed my family your watering cans in love and told them that I could only dream of being so creative!

This card is no exception. I glanced at the cocktails and thought you had wimped a little on the challenge because that certainly wasn't a holiday stamp. Then I realized it was the sentiment and it is absolutely perfect!

I never thought of using that sentiment for anything other than Christmas... but it works perfectly! Congrats on your wins, too. :)
