Saving the Day!

I'm off to the theatre tonight to see Dirty Dancing, with my daughter, my friend and her daughter, really looking forward to a girl's night out.

Now a girls night out makes me think of wine (is that normal LOL!), I have quite a collection of jokey wine themed sentiments and I am always looking for images that will go with them, so I was thrilled when I came across this Bugaboo digi-stamp, and then to top it all off I found a little corkscrew charm in my stash for the perfect finishing touch.
The sentiment makes me giggle every time I read it (am I easily amused? - probably!) which is brilliant as I am having a few health problems at the moment which are getting me down a bit, nothing too serious, but causing me a few problems, including with my eyesight, which is a nightmare for me as I tend to do quite a bit of fussy cutting and when everything I look at has a little halo around it, it's hard to tell exactly where I should cut.
My health, is also the reason why my blog has been a bit neglected lately, and probably will be for a few more weeks, hopefully once I get my medication sorted and I start feeling less tired I can get back on track.

Anyway, enough of that, onwards and upwards as the saying goes,
here's my card...

Digital stamp - Glass of Wine - Bugaboo
Papers - Denim and Daisies - Just So Scrappy
Ribbon - Meiflower
Charm - stash

I am entering my card into the following challenges
Sister Act card Challenge #101- Anything Goes
Crafty Catz #274 - 2 or more patterned papers
Simply Papercraft #2 - Anything goes/Steampunk ( I went with AG)
Craft your passion #257- Always anything goes

Hope it gave you a giggle.

I hope you have a great evening, Colette, and it sounds as though some wine could be on offer too. Your card is fantastic and I love the image and sentiment - my daughter would really appreciate it!! I hope your medical problems get sorted out - I know what you mean about not focussing properly on intricate work.
Hugs, Alison xx
