October's Inspiration over at The Scrappy Tree

Inspiration Monday has restarted at The Scrappy Tree! This image was used as the source of inspiration this week.

This is what I made:
I used alcohol inks to try and replicate the colors from the image and I painted a Maya Rd. Chipboard tree with black acrylic paint to add to this festive wall hanging.
Come on over to The Scrappy Tree and check out the challenge! We'd love to see what you make!
Happy Monday!

Junk Bonanza Second Post!

For some reason, I could not add any more pics to my first post from today so here is my second post! :) I had found so many pretty things at the Junk Bonanza! Here's a sampling of what I found:

These old advertisements are just so gorgeous!

Beautiful pink/coral lace!

Some Vintage patterns just 25 cents each!!!

A flower frog and vintage lace!

This lovely paper bag album (from that one booth I referenced in my last post!). I just love this album!! I am inspired to make one myself!

Junk Bonanza pics

As I have mentioned before, when my friend Erica came to MN we went to the Junk Bonanza and since I left my camera at home (nice one huh?) Erica took all our pics from the day. I'd like to share some of them with you now. Thank you Erica for bringing your camera! :)

This was such a fun place. We had a great time!

I think my favorite place to check out was this one booth that had gorgeous paper bag albums and vintage paper items that had me very happy!

What a great display of goods!

Love the letter charms!
Now come to think of it, I never did share pics of everything I got that day!! I'll have to make another post!

World Card Making Day!

Today is World Cardmaking Day and I got a card made just this evening before the day was done! :) I am in the process of trying to load up my etsy shop and I thought I could add this to it.

I used my favorite brown kraft cardstock and one of my favorite papers (DCWV) for this card! I also used my Fiskars punch and a Marvy circle punch. The glitter flower came from Melissa Frances and the stamp is from Hero Arts.

Thanks for looking. If you'd like to check out my etsy click HERE
