The Paper Players - Design Team Call

Hi, this isn't my usual blog post with a challenge card.  I'm submitting this post in answer to a Design Team Call over at The Paper Players.  So, if you are a regular reader of my blog, you may have already seen these projects.

To the DT at the Paper Players:
1)  My name is Susie Wittwer
2)  I work full time, but squeeze in as much crafting (and blogging) time as I can on the weekends. During the work week I also find time each evening to read my favorite blogs.  I love participating in challenges and I love blogging!  I enjoy sharing what I create, almost as much as I enjoy creating it.  I would love to join the DT for several reasons.  First, to learn and grow more as a crafter and blogger.  Second, to be a part of a team that inspires others.  And, third...this would be a great opportunity to "meet" even more people who have a passion for this craft.

3)  I'm including 3 of my favorite projects, as requested.
This card uses SU dsp, a paper doily, a heart cut out of packaging from a box of candy...and a bow made of vintage seam binding.  The little rose is from SU; I colored it with a marker.  Also, I added 3 vintage buttons.
I used a SU stamp set for the dress form and for the "ruler" stamped on the crumb cake seam binding.  The dsp is also SU.  The sentiment is computer generated.  I've added some machine stitching also, to go along with the sewing theme.
I used a SU stamp for the pussy willow images, after masking and sponging the background with several colors of SU ink.  I believe the sentiment is from Gina K Designs.

Thank you very much for your consideration!
