Let's Get Cozy and Relax!

Happy Independence day! Hope everyone has a wonderful holiday, those of you who celebrate it! We had a huge BBQ and fireworks display last night, and had a blast! Now I'm tired from all that cooking! There's nothing like yummy food on the grill though!

Anyway, I should stop rambling and tell you about the new challenge today at Daisy's Doodles! Since everyone is enjoying this lovely summer weather here in the U.S, what better challenge theme than summer?! That's right! Our theme this time is Summer Doodles! We want to see your projects using summer images or created with summer colors. You definitely want to play along with us, so you have a chance at some fabulous images from the Daisy Doodles store! (Check out the store and see all the fabulous images Jules has to offer!)

This is a super easy theme, so be sure you come on over to the Daisy Doodles challenge blog and link up your creation! We really want you to play along with us!

I'm so excited to share my project with you, today, because its my first project as an official member of the Daisy Doodles DT! Yay! I had a blast making this, too! I decorated this little wine cozy for a friend who is a wine drinker and thought it would make a fun gift. (Sometimes you have to be creative to find a gift for the friend who has everything! LOL!)

Isn't my little wine cozy cute?! It is decorated with blue seashells. I used an image from the Summer Fun pack, as well as the alpha blocks 'n numbers set, by Daisy Doodles. The images are colored with Promarkers, then cut out and attached to the twine on the wine cozy, with red ribbon.

I think it turned out cute! What do you think?!

I am entering this cute little wine cozy in the following challenges:
