Good Ole Days

Hi folks!  Hope you've had a terrific weekend.  I did manage to finish another Autumn card today.  Seems like Fall inspires me to craft.  Summer is so busy on the farm I don't have a lot of time, so I'm enjoying lazy Autumn days with less to do.  I have a card to share tonite and I'm entering it in the following challenges:

The Shabby Tea Room #83 - Fall Flowers:

The Pink Elephant #120:

Also the following challenges:
And here is my card:

This little card is a modge podge of Autumn.  I used Papertrey Ink cardstock and doily die (which I'm so addicted to it's not even funny!).  My patterned paper is Cosmo Cricket, Authentique, and My Little Shoe Box.  And my sentiment is a Melissa Frances rub on.

I have a few pictures of my Fall decorations to share with you.  I love decorating the house this time of year.  My mantle is decked out, take a look (these pictures are kinda dark, should have turned more lights on or used a flash!):

And here's another:

I'm all about the primitive look!  See that big jar of spools, I've got some plans for it!  I think altered spools are fabulous, search it on Pinterest.  Think I'll make some Christmas ornaments.  I bought that BIG jar of spools at a local Antique store, love it! 

The latest kit from The Sampler is now available for purchase, it's called Mrs. Weasley.  The kit is BEAUTIFUL, can't wait to get to work.  Will have projects to share later this week. 

Would love your vote at the Practical Scrappers Card Contest - I made the Top 20.  All you have to do to vote is comment under the comment section, easy peasy! 

And last but not least, I've gotta thank some challenges for including me in their winners circle the past few weeks:
Thanks so very much to these challenges!
