You make me smile!

Hi!  I've been procrastinating a bit on some challenges lately.  I finally got around to finishing a card for TGF's Farm Fresh Friday Piece it Together.  It's all about paper piecing which I love to do since I don't think Copic coloring is my strong point.  Sometimes it's just easier to cut and paste.

I decided to make a side step card (tutorial from SCS HERE) to feature the animals from TGF's Down By the Pond.  I love to paper piece animals!  I made grass from tissue paper but realized after I glued the flowers on that you can't see much of the grass anymore!  The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn's Hello Friend. 

I love this turtle and bunny!  Both are paper pieced so lots of layering especially on the turtle including the flower cap, his shell and his eyelid.  The carrot is paper pieced too. 

I used vellum to paper piece the goldfish and added some stickles.  The froggy in the background also is paper pieced.

The kids will be heading back to school next week!  I can't believe I'll have all 3 in school now.  Wonder what I should do with my free time?  Hehe.

Thanks for reading!
