Getting Merry!







I cannot ever remember the last time I participated in a Papertrey Ink Blog Hop.  I am certain it's been donkey's years!  Even though I am not quite ready to take the leap into full steam ahead Christmas crafting just yet, I was happy enough to get a few tags on the go.  I made three, but the following wine bottle tag was the only one that fit the bill as far as being directly inspired by a specific group of colours for the blog hop, which is all about non-traditional holiday color schemes.

I suspect I have one of those wacky Papertrey Ink Sweet Blush ink pads that many folks have been talking about, as it is looking a lot less Sweet Blush/pink than advertised.  Oh well.  Lucky it still matches, I guess.  This bottle tag was further inspired by a tag I once spied ages ago from Betsy Veldman, I am pretty sure.  I am certainly having a vague moment on typing this post so forgive me if I got it wrong.  It was just one of those many offerings from the PTI DT that stuck in my mind and got me itching to craft not to mention part with a bit of my hard earned cash.  LOL

So,  that's it for me today.  Happy hopping!

Jen, your tag base almost looks like leather. Don't know if you intended that, but the effect is gorgeous.
