Wine Taster Girlfriends ... Art Impressions new release BLOG HOP!!


Hello Ai Fans!!
http://www.artimpressionsstamps.blogspot.com/2014/04/challenge-133-best-of-friends-challenge.html
 Today's a very excited day over at Art Impressions!
The new 2014 Girlfriends are now available!


I've used Wine Tasters on my card.


This is one of my favorite Ai images!  Why you ask? (as if its cuteness isn't reason enough)
These are my girlfriends!  (see below) We like to drink wine.  We look for any excuse...birthdays, end of the school year,  it's Tuesday...you get the picture.  I'm lucky enough to live in the upstate NY wine country.  We have dozens and dozens of wineries right in our "backyard".

This was a bus trip we took for a friend's 40th birthday.


Here's me and my BFF on a trip we took with another friend's work group.



I made a birthday card and used part of the verse called


Here's the inside of my card with one of the sentiments that comes with this Girlfriends set.
