Blog Hop Recipe for...

Mulled wine!! You see, I don't claim to be much of a cook. I get by, but it's nothing I love to do. So, when the Janiel's October blog hop theme was announced to us it didn't take long to remember that I had some wine boxes I could use for my recipe/gift! On a cold Saturday evening at home with my DH, we love to make mulled wine for sipping!
Now if you've come here from the excellent Patti Jo you are doing great! If not, you can go to the very talented Janiel's blog and start at the beginning! Or at the Magnolia-licious blog for details on the prize to be won at the end of October!



I used Standing Fall Tilda from Magnolia-licious for my "Main gal" on the box and card. She is in Diana's store right now! Most of the dp is from a K & Co pad I got at JoAnn's last year. The small flowered paper is from Daisy D and is also from awhile back.

Sorry, same picture twice! I was having a terrible time with my photography because I didn't finish until Sunday evening!






The tag is also made with dp. To get a good tag size I almost always use a tag from the package of them I got at Office Max. I cut my top dp to the same size, adhere it and punch a hole in it. The I cut the back from card stock a little larger and adhere it to the back. After punching a hole in that I put in a large brad and set it with my Crop-a-dile. Easy tag and a little stiffer because the original tag is inside.
CANDY ALERT
I'd love to send someone a wine box and some other goodies for creating! Please leave me a comment by Saturday, October 23, and I'll pick a winner on Sunday. I'll ship anywhere, of course!
And now, off you go to the wonderful Suzanne's blog for the final entry! We hope you've been inspired today! Thanks so much for visiting here for some spiced wine!
Have a great day!
Cheryl
