Imagine it’s the perfect fall afternoon.  There’s a light breeze, the sun is shining and you’re surrounded by acres of beautiful vines filled with ripe grapes.

Wood grain background and accents provide the perfect vineyard feeling to this card. Half Full by Stampin' Up!.

This stamp set was inspired by Stampin’ Up! demonstrator Linda Bauwin.  Upon the achievement of a demonstrator’s one million dollars in personal sales, Stampin’ Up! invites him/her to their home office to celebrate. During that visit they spend an afternoon with one of our concept artists and inspire a stamp set that depicts their passions.

If you haven’t noticed the vintage label on the bottle, take another look. The 1975 label has a special meaning.  That was the year Linda, and her husband, Jay were married. Over the years, I had come to know Linda and Jay well.  They are fun, loving, generous and hard working people.

Wood Texture designer paper provides the perfect border for this wine glass and bottle card. Half Full by Stampin' Up!.

Linda reached her million dollar achievement shortly after Jay’s passing.  I know celebrating together was something they had talked about and looked forward to. And, in true Linda fashion, she wasn’t going to celebrate without him.  I love how she incorporated their wedding year on the label, depicting their nearly 40 years of marriage.  I also know that Jay was incredibly proud of Linda.  And, so am I.  Let’s raise a glass to this 1975 vintage!
