New Beginnings at Anything But a Card

Good morning and welcome to another Anything But a Card post.  This month's challenge is "New Beginnings" which means it's basically up to you on how you want to interpret that.  I thought long and hard on what I wanted to do and decided for my New Year's resolution I would "upcycle" more and with that said, I will give something a "New Beginning"!  So here goes ...

I am a part-time bookkeeper at a bar which is an awesome gig.  Not only for doing the books there but all the goodies I can hoard, er, I mean collect.  Right before Christmas my boss gave me an awesome bottle.  She knows how much I love to create things and she thought I might  be able to do something with it.  Well, of course I can and did.  In fact, I gave it right back to her after I did this :

I started with some left over vinyl that I cut with my Cricut to spell out Jane's bar and used my Armour Etch. 

The bottle on the left is during the day, the bottle on the right at night.
I love how this lights up and makes for a great bar accent.


I added some purple and gold Christmas light in the bottle (yes, she is also a Vikings Fan)
 and now she has a cool accent to put up on her bar.

I think this is a rather cool idea for a "New Beginning" for an old empty booze bottle.

I hope you've enjoyed my post today and please make sure to link up with us over at Anything But a Card.  There are three simple rules
1.Create ANYTHING BUT A CARD
2. Make sure you do something to represent the Challenge "NEW BEGINNINGS"
