Old Friends ….

CCEE1132 Glass wm

Hi everyone,

It’s Thursday which means it is time for another challenge with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog.

Our challenge hostess for the month, Charlene is continuing her theme for the August CCEE challenges based on Interesting Facts she found from the website. Each week in August, she is giving the team (and you) an interesting fact and an operative word that must be used for the inspiration of our design.

INTERESTING FACT: "When glass breaks, the cracks move at speeds of up to 3,000 miles per hour."


For this challenge I dug into some of my older stamps and found this stamping that shows a wine glass and wine bottle, both these items are made from glass! It always feels good to get some of those neglected stamps inked once and a while Smile.

I stamped the sentiment in two separate parts so that I can use part of it on the outside of my card and the rest on the inside. Not sure that that wine is really vintage though hehe, if you look closely at the label on the bottle it says 2004! Now I am not a wine drinker but even I know that isn’t vintage Winking smile. But I am sure the recipient will understand the meaning behind the sentiment right!

Don’t forget to check out the CCEE Stampers blog (goes live 12 AM EST) to see the rest of the creations the CCEE Stampers created this week. You can also see more details of their creations on their individual blogs:

  1. Great coloring on the bottle and wine! Nice detailing with the bubbles, too.

  2. smile... what a pretty card!

  3. I really like how you've been finishing off the inside of your cards, too, Frances. Great idea to split up the sentiment in this case. It's good to see you pull out some of your older stash from your many semi trucks (ha! ha!). I have several friends this pretty card would be perfect for!
