Kiddos Back to School

Hello Friends,
Welcome and Happy Thursday Yippe!!! Are ya getting excited for the weekend?? My week sure flew by:)  I hope you had a chance to check out my Home Decor Project for the challenge over at Decorate to Celebrate.

OK so, tonight is Back to School Night {parents only}  and I thought a little note and a cute card for our son's teacher would be nice to let her know we look forward to chatting with her tonight!! I used the paper piecing technique for this card.  I LOVE this technique and YOU should give it a try!!  Look at the close up below!!

Entering into the Die Cuttin Divas Challenge

Oh I love these ADORABLE kiddos, aren't they the cutest??? I used the paper piecing technique to dress these kiddos with some Designer Paper "Comfort Cafe" and "Summer Smooches"  I LOVE LOVE using the paper piecing technique even though it can take some time to put together but the result is precious! 
My base is white but a little hard to see on photo but you can see it on the pic below,  the Basic Black layer measures 4-1/8" X 5-3/8"  I then took my sewing machine and sewed around the to try and make a circle/oval,  I think it looks like chalk:) 
 I then used the "Apothecary Accents Framelits" to die cut the Summer Smooches DSP for another added layer! You can purchase any  of these products to my card HERE!!

Give this sketch a try and head over to Die Cuttin Divas
