In the Christmas "Spirit"....

Normally NOT a wine drinker, or any kind of drinker for that matter,
I recently took a trip to Iowa to visit an old high school friend. While there, I discovered this amazing Apple/Cinnamon dessert wine that I could sip all evening!
It tastes very much like apple cider with a bit
of spice and a punch.
So, I suppose now I can call myself a "wine-drinker"!
(Unfortunately, the Iowa winery does not ship to Arizona, so it has caused some difficulty in ever getting more!  She and I are working on it!)
This season there are so many choices of gifts out there, and just as many ways to wrap them.
 I used the very beautiful stamp set from
"A Little Bit Scenic" line from Sheena Douglas,
Here's a hanging gift tag I made for that special bottle that should I find and want to "present" as a present, I am ready....

Yes, I know, ...this bottle isn't quite full. 
I may have used a teeny weeny bit in a recipe the other day...hmmm...I think...

Since I am new to the Wine Scene, I have no idea what true colors wine comes in, but I know red is in there somewhere!   My favorite, the Eve's Apple from the Santa Maria Winery in Iowa, has little color, so this card would not have popped like it did had I used it as a sample!

Merry Christmas and Green pattern papers are DCWV, wood grain pattern paper is
My Mind's Eye, and the sentiments were borrowed from my old stamp stash.

This tag has also been entered into the RED challenge at
OOzak Blog.
