Drunken Stampers challenge #141 Person: Bartender

Good morning my friends! Today starts another challenge at the Drunken Stampers challenge blog! This week is focused on a person. A Bartender, to be exact!

The challenge is to base your card on a bartender, or use the prompts as a guide. In this case, drinks or a bar. What an amazingly fitting challenge for this blog! LOL! Also, it happens to be my birthday today, so drinks all around! YAY! (Go shorty! It's my birthday!) ☺

Technically, it's Team Yellow Canaries turn this week to inspire you, but you know I couldn't NOT make something for this challenge! LOL! Not only did I make something, but I made TWO somethings! HA! Check it out:

and the inside:

The planets must have been aligned since I just got the wine stamp from Unity, then Paper Smooches came out with drink themed stamps and dies. HAPPY HAPPY JOY JOY! I started with a card base made from "wine" colored card stock. Cut a strip of patterned paper and die cut the wine glass and adhered with foam dots. Stamped the sentiment and added some rhinestones for a bit of bling. On the inside I die cut the wine glass again and added the cheers sentiment. Super easy card!

My next card I totally cased from Laura Bassen. (Thanks Laura! You are brilliant!) I just fell in love with her card and KNEW I was going to make one myself!

Here's the inside:

another angle of the front so you can see the Glossy Accents in action!

I used my new Spectrum Noir markers to color this. (My Hubby surprised me with the last 7 sets I hinted at wanting for my birthday present. And gave me my gift early so I could play with them a bit this week! He is THE best husband in the Universe!! ♥ Love you Andy!!)

I plan on giving these to my sisters later today. As you are reading this, we (including our fur baby) are on our way to the beach house we rented in NC. Even better, BOTH of my sisters will be joining us for most of the week to drink ,celebrate, drink, bake in the sun, drink, and just have fun and be goofy! (Did I mention we'll be drinking?) This just may be the BEST birthday week for me EVER! I'm SO excited I can barely sit still!!

Ok, enough about me. Go check out what the Yellow Canaries team came up with at Drunken Stampers. I guarantee you won't be disappointed!
