Happy Columbus Day!

Ok so it's not a major holiday but the kids are off school today and there is no mailman to stalk for goodies! So here I am.

Actually the WCMD challenges are coming to a close. At 12:00 AM PDT (Check out Julie's blog for a countdown clock) we will begin posting the winners of our individual challenges then tomorrow when all is said and done Johanna will draw for a Grand Prize winner among all the participants! GOOD LUCK everyone that's playing along!

Also ending at 12:oo AM EST are the linnecards challenges. You won't want to miss out on those either!

Speaking of linnecards , today is Monday and it's time to reveal the DT challenge for the week! We were to do a paper piecing. Which I did last weekend and frantically logged on to upload my project in time only to find out I was a week early. Ooops! Well I guess it's not a bad oops. Anyhoo the entire time I was working on my first piece I was thinking how I could do a Halloween themed paper piecing of a web. So I had all week to work on that as well. Luckily I remembered to upload them both tonight which would really be something I would do!
The Creepy Crawly web is done with Rusty Pickle Adams Family papers. I can't pick just one as a favorite. I did use some pens to finish it off. American Crafts, Souffle and a Shimmer pen.

The Eiffel Towers is by justjohanna. I stamped it on patterned papers(KI Elsie, K&Co and Scenic Route) then cute out the pieces and put them back together. the alpha is a new set I had to have by Technique Tuesday Boulder Skyline. Sooooo many things you can do with this one can't wait to use it on everything! The flower is Making Memories and more pens American Crafts and the Signo Uniball. OOOH and I almost forgot Stickles!

Hopefully your inspired to do a paper piecing! Be sure to check out the designers blog to be even more inspired than you thought possible! Have a very pleasant Columbus Day!
