Wishes from Our House to Yours


This morning when I woke up and was visiting some of my blog friends (Paige)  I saw a post that triggered both a happy and sad memory for me.  It took me back a few years ago to happy times scrapping with my best friend Toni and showing her how to make Wine Bottle Tags for her husband.  Her husband John worked in Real Estate, so it was customary for him to give a bottle of wine to his customers when they purchased or sold their home.......my thoughts then immediately came to John who sadly passed away just over a fortnight ago following a very short battle with Cancer.  It just felt so right that I make a Wine Bottle Tag this morning for my post to share with you for Friday Friends with Flair.






I immediately knew which stamps I would use from the November Unity KOTM, and that it would be another great project for using up some Christmas Paper scraps left over from my card making.  

I enjoy the odd glass of wine as do my family and friends so it is no suprise that wine is often part of our Christmas Gift Giving and I think these tags would make a wonderful personal touch.  The saying Drink & Be Merry comes to mind as I write this post, but I would also be sure to tell you not to drink and drive. 

Now because this is a FWF post it means that over on the Unity Blog you will find lots of other wonderful inspiration using Unity Stamps, and the Friday $5 Feature, which again this week is actually two stamps at less than $5.  But the even more fantastic news is that a Huge '3 Week Inventory Reduction Sale' is now on over at the Unity Stamp Co Website, with over 150 items up to 45% off.  So be sure to check all this Unity Goodness Out!
