Grape Vine card

Hello My Dear stamper Friends:
I posted this card at the French blog: "Un brin de créativité"  for Memory Box thinking on the grape harvests in France...

pin it:

As a student over there The "Vendanges" or Grape Harvest are a very common cultural/summer job in France and they start in July and end in October, depending on the region for the harvest...
I remember having several friends going to The "vendanges"!
They work full days with a winemaker, they live on site with them, eat and celebrate at the end of the day with huge open family meals...and get paid the minimum wage.

Here in California in wine country : Napa Valley the festivities and parties are a little bit different, they are more towards festivals and parties organized by the winemakers, for the public, which they are as well very fun to attend...
but both activities are celebrated in different ways ...

anyways ...
Seeing this grape vine die, my thought went right away to this time of the year in France ...and this important activity for the wine making industry...the picking of the grapes...

With purple "Stickles"  I added some grapes and I spelled the word "Vin=Wine" in French with the die "alphabet library tags"

The ribbon was a gift sent by my friend Rosalie from "Pharendole de scrap"  who lives in Normandy, France.

  2. Lovely card. Also love the history you added about the Vineyard and customs. I have never visited a vineyard, have gone to 1 wine tasting party but found most of what we tasted was too dry and bitter for my taste anyway.

  8. Bibiana, thank you for your recent visit & sweet comment. I see you design for my favorite die company - Memory Box. Love this beautiful card, and your vellum background is gorgeous. The die cut out is wonderful in the vellum. Ditto those trialing ivy tendrils, and the stickles grape touches were a delightful trim. Super lovely ribbon trim and the VIN lettering...Looked for a place to join as a follower, but don't see one. TFS & hugs too.
