Ticket to drink

German Phrase of the Day: Die Geschafte schliessen um halb 21. The shops are closing at 8:30 pm. It has taken some getting used to that Germans will say half 6 when they mean 5:30. It can get confusing when making appointments and we're switching between English and German because I want to make sure they are saying what they mean.

When Karin came to visit me for VSN, she brought my new stamp set, Cheers to You! I HAD to have this set when I saw it online in the European catalogs, and I so love it!!

This was another VSN card. The challenge was to create a card inspired by a ticket, or with a ticket theme. I decided this was a ticket to drink! I made the background paper myself by stamping the martini glass multiple times and coloring in just the olive. Cute, huh? Then, who goes better with the Cheers to you martini glass than Cosmobella? I colored her outfit to match the card (old olive and cameo coral) then attached her to the card. I used the ticket corner punch to make the greeting look more like a ticket, and by adding 2 Bella charms, I managed to follow Beate's weekend sketch challenge from that weekend (it was #31)
