November 2012 Blog Hop at PapertreyInk!

It's Blog Hop time at PapertreyInk!
My inspiration came from a notions book I purchased when Borders was closing last year.
I was instantly drawn to it's quilt like cover and vintage colors.
I love to include tags with my towels that I sell on Etsy.
 
Did a bunch! Some one layer, some multi-layered.
 
The tags seemed to call out for a place on a thank you card.
All PTI products except the wool felt, I found at a quilt shop.

Have fun at the blog hop!
Can't wait to see everyone else's book choices!

  23. I think this card should be screen printed on an apron somehow. I'd wear it. Maybe even out of the house. LOVE the wool felt leaves, and the depth is incredible. How you got it so close to the book is beyond me but as usual, your work astounds me.
