Hoot Hoot Hooray!

Hello! I have super exciting niece has arrived! My sister went in to be induced Monday morning, and just had sweet Cora this afternoon! It was a long labor, but we are so glad that she is here, safe and sound and that everyone is healthy.
I figured that my sis would appreciate a bottle of Merlot in the days to come.  This is one of my favorite (very cheap) bottles, and I love the little owl on the bottle. I decided to go with that owl theme, and used a set from The Stamps Of Life called owls2love.
I used the large scallop border from Sweet N Sassy stamps for the border.  I used inks in Chocolate and Guava by Stephanie Barnard for Clear Snap for my owls and wine tag.  The wine tag was created with a 1 3/4 inch punch. I scored a line just below the circle and then stamped my image and sentiment on the part that "hangs".
My sister is not a big pink person, so I thought this was a nice mix of browns and a more muted pink.  I am anxious to check on my sis and meet my new niece.  Now that she has arrived, I hope to get back to some more regular blogging.  I have been worried about my sister, because she has some medical problems that could have become problematic at the end of this pregnancy.  So happy everything turned out great (minus the 2 days of induction)!

Thanks for stopping by,
