Juice of the Gods....

This card is made with my mom in mind....
(she's gonna kill me when she reads this)
She loves wine!!!


For this card I used several different B-Line Designs stamps which I just love (not sure who made the sentiment).  The bottle and goblet were stamped with Archival Ink, colored then covered with Glossy Accents to make it really look like glass.   The background and sentiment were both stamped then Broken China DI was added to the background.

I know I've fallen down on the step by step pics but I've been working on creating a new kit for Altered Pages and I've made several cards for this weekends Operation Write Home Memorial Day Sketch Blog Hop.  I hope you'll stop by and check them out...  There will be 4 posted here at Ink Stains plus I've also got two over at Altered Pages.

A little more about the farm...
When I mentioned that I had to sew more when the guys were busy with the hay.....well, we own our own business (Industrial Sewing Machine Sales/Repairs) and we do some specialty sewing for a few of the companies we work for.  When Eric is busy making hay I have to do all of the sewing which has been taking up major amounts of my time.  That is why in part I've been posting later in the day than usual here.  Hopefully after they get the first cutting done I'll have a bit more time on my hands to get back to my usual step by step techniques and stuff.

Someone asked about the donkeys...I will take some current pics of them this weekend and post them soon.  They are still ornery as ever...well for a couple weeks at least.  Zeek isn't going to be so peppy after the next visit from the farrier.  He has had a hoof disease for quite a while (since way before we adopted him) and it's to the point we have to either fix it or he'll become lame and eventually have to be put down.  That's not going to happen if I can help it so we're going to try to fix him up.  Hopefully it will work and he'll be kickin his heels up again real soon.

so, that's all for today...
I hope you're able to take at least a few minutes to play in the ink!
