Charisma cardz #49 – DT project

Good morning everyone, well the week is whizzing by again, so I’m here to share my DT project for this week’s charisma cardz challenge.  This week Allison has set the theme and she has chosen “Christmas gift” so get your thinking caps on and join in the fun.  I decided to make a bottle tag as I usually buy my BIL a bottle of something for Christmas.  Here is my project:

I used a gorgeous Lili of the Valley image called ‘James bear – in the snow’.  I’ve never made one of these bottle tags before but they are so simple to do I will definitely be making more for upcoming birthdays etc. 

We have two sponsors this week.  Firstly we have Make It Crafty and they are offering one lucky winner 3 digi images of their choice from their store. 


Our second sponsor is Tellen’s Place and one lucky winner will receive a $10.00 voucher to spend in their etsy store.

The rest of the DT have made lots of wonderful Christmas gift items, so why not pop over and take a look.  We really appreciate your lovely comments.
