Paper Pretties Monday

** Please scroll down to see the Love to Create post.  **

Hi there! Thanks for coming back.  This week's Paper Pretties challenge is...

Paper Piecing or Piercing

I love paper piecing, it makes it so easy to get your card done quickly.  I have two cards to share with you, too.  The first features a new set by ARTish.  This is Blossom and he is the sweetest little bunny.

Don't you just wanna squeeze him?  I also used an adorable sketch from Taylored Expressions - she was right when she said you have to do this one.  It's awesome!  I love the results with my card.

Ink: Soft Sky (SU!), Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Tools: Oval cutters (CM), 7/8" & 1" circle punches
Embellishments: button, baker's twine

And for my next card - this one features a new set by our new artist Fawn.  (Side note:  Can you believe I have two cards to show you?  I told you my Saturday was very productive.  Heehee!)

I am REALLY happy with how this card turned out.  The colors, the layout and super cute image!  So darn cute I could just squeal.  Ahem.  OK, little too much excitement there.  The layout is from another fabulous sketch - this one is from The Sweet Stop.  And I did both the piecing and the piercing.
