I was so excited about today's inspiration site that I found 2 items from which to base my card. When I saw this lightbulb I thought immediately of my light bulb guy. And I also liked these metal looking wall decorations and thought of adding some embossed silver plumber's tape. In making this I got to use a fun chipboard gear that Kathleen (Lammie) had sent me..thanks buddy! I know steampunk isn't for everyone but I had to go where the inspiration leads me and that's what it did today.
One more thing I wanted to mention..I got an email this morning from a corpsman serving on the USS Enterprise responding to cards I had sent to Operation Write Home. It made my day and makes me so proud of and grateful for our troops.

Polly, some sites are just MADE for you....and this is one of them. You not only have vintage images, but you have quirky ones(quirky being a GOOD THING) which give a whimsy and humor to your work. This collage of those images and "assembled items" is fantastic. No quick perusal here...it is chock-block full of interesting bits & pieces. LOVE IT!!
