The Cutting Cafe and Wine Glasses

Hello! Do you all need a great idea for those Happy NEW YEAR cards? Well, I have the perfect idea for you! This week at THE CUTTING CAFE, Regina asked us to used either the WINE GLASS SHAPED CARD or the WINE BOTTLE SHAPED CARD... I have used the WINE GLASS SHAPED CARD along with one of the sentiments to make mine. Isn't it cute? I had a SU set that had the little bubble stamp (Lifes a Breeze) to make my wine glass look bubbly!! I also added a little Glossy accents to add to the effect. Hope you like it---and hope you all have a fabulous HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

On Wednesday the teams inspiration will be up on the THE CUTTING CAFE BLOG, so if you get the chance to stop on over, you will get lots of great inspiration and ideas--and if you comment-you can be in the draw to win 3 sets of your own from THE CUTTING CAFE!
Thanks for stopping by today!
