Desert Islands Crafters & Tiddly Inks

I was super excited and honored to be asked to join the DT at Desert Islands Crafters Challenges !  My first challenge as a member of their DT is 

Challenge #13  and here is the deal - you have to use at least 3 of the items from the following itinerary:

1 - Dry embossing
2 - Paper piecing (not to be confused with piercing !)
3 - Pearls
4 - Office stationary (paper clips, etc.)
5 - Kraft card
6 - Ruffles
7 - Stickers
8 - Stitching
9 - Vintage/Old fashioned (could be an image or just style)
10 - Fabric

I did numbers 2, 4, 5, and 7.  I used a stamp from The Greeting Farm and paper-pieced his clothes and hat.  Come play along with us - each week's winner gets to be a Guest Designer!  

Next up is my card for this week's:

Tiddly Inks #61 - Thank You Teacher

I was totally psyched to see I had won a $25 gift certificate to Tiddly Inks last week -at the end of each month, Christy draws a name out of everyone who participated in each weekly challenge that month - she's so generous.  So I went on a little shopping spree and picked up this adorable teacher image.  I used a little bit of everything from my stash - background paper, alphabet ribbon, etc.  Peace.
