Click on the pic for a closeup and you'll see I made a little Polyshrink wine charm of the glass to match. they sell the wine charm rings, beads, everything you need for this at Hobby lobby or your LSS. Stamp in Stazon, I colored mine with a Copic before shrinking. Don't forget to stamp your charm of choice ifirst, it's gonna be really tiny (and look so cute!) after shrinking

What's for Dinner?
This is a little 5x7 acrylic frame I picked up at Hobby lobby for 1.99. I cut some Gina K Pure Luxury Black Onyx CS slightly smaller than the farame to fit and a piece of Natural Parchment from Paper Temptress to layer on top of that to make it look like a formal printed menu. The glass from "A Charmed Life" is stamped in Memento Tuxedo black at the bottom corner and colored with peerless watercolor Royal Crimson and a Niji waterbrush. I stamped one of the 25 pt Times Roman letters from my Just Rite set (M for Muenchinger) onto the little tag on white CS and cut it out (nbut now that I have the 5/8" circle punch, IN will be punching them from here on out!!) :) "On the Menu" I arranged in the 50 and 95 pt font sets on the Just Rite rectangle stamper. After adhering 3 fancy corners punches, I slipped this into the frame and now I have a dry erase board I can change up (4 packs of black dry erase markers at Hobby Lobby, too, cheap!) it is really fun to write out your dinner menu, even when it's not a fancy meal, just to make it feel like you're eating out, or to simply let everyone know, since everyone will ask, "What's for dinner?" Guests love to read it as they come in to kitchen and get extra hungry! ;) This is a fast project you can match to your kitchen or dining decor and makes a GREAT gift, for the person who has everything! be sure to add their own monogram initial for their family.
