"Home Sweet Home" February 2013 SOTM Blog Hop

Hello my blogging friends and welcome back to the SOTM Blog Hop....61 Consultants this month!
   If you are coming here from Gina Brandstetter Blog you're on the right path.....and if you get lost along the way, its easy to get back on track, just go to Helen Onulak's Blog for a full list of hoppers and here we go....
First, I have to say.....this stamp set really challenged me?  I adore the set, but my creative mind was like what? much that I actually started the project 3 weeks ago and left it laying to the side in my craft room!  Now, when I say I started it, all I really did was stamp the sentiments on white daisy cardstock.....ever been there?
Anywho.....this is what came up with YESTERDAY and finishing a few minutes ago!  Literally, when I went to load my pictures and post, our home phone and internet was out????? I was on the phone for half an hour getting it fixed....thank you Brighthouse!!!
As I blabber on....I made Wine Tags....yep, we are always going to someone's house at least once a month and of course I take my favorite beverage, wine that thought instead of a decorated wine bag, I'll make tags....4 to be exact.....they would be great for any occasion, but really awesome for a house warming gift. 

 Here is a view before they were placed on the bottles for the pics.
 All four tags.

 Tag #1
 Tag #2
 Tag #3
 Tag #4
 On the top of the tags I placed Grey Sparkle Badge Buttons on each corner.
  Using an oldie but a goodie.....Bless This Nest C1445, I made cute little house:)

  1. LOVE your wine tags... they are just the bomb diggity! Thanks for sharing... love the birdhouses the most! great work fussy cutting :) Kathi

  2. Well, you're sure good under pressure. These are great!

  3. Always love how much detail you add to your projects. I especially love how you tilted the stamped sentiments so that they hang over the edge of the tag. Btw...I'd love one of those tags...with the bottle of wine, of course. ;)

  4. So...I'm not sure if anyone else is having problems with blogspot...when I went to publish 2 comments they completely disappeared? If you don't see your comment please post again. They were very nice comments :) Thank YOU!!

  5. These are awesome wine tags! Great job!

  6. Wow, when I saw your creations I thought-- what a great idea, why didn't I think of that?! Had no idea that the end design was a last minute. I also struggled and had to think out of the box. Finally got to use some chicken wire on my project! Thanks again for the inspiration! Maureen

  7. Love this idea!! Pinned for sure!

  8. Awesome idea! And the tags are just gorgeous *Ü*

  9. Fabulous idea for a housewarming gift.
