Happy Valentine's Day ... and Two Grandkids' Valentines

Happy Valentine's Day to everyone! I got two grandkids' valentines done and in the mail. The third one I have to make today. This first one is for our granddaughter. I paper-pieced the bunny (from Sandylion) with Die Cuts With a View paper. I added a punched border (with a Martha Stewart punch) and put a strip of white cardstock under it so it would show up better. The pink heart is cut with a Lifestyle Crafts die and the tiny hearts are done with the same MS border punch as the pink, but I cut some purple ones, too. The sentiment is from a Fiskars set. I mounted the heart on Dimensionals. I'm linking this to this week's CAS-ual Fridays challenge, which is to use paper-piecing. 

This second one is for our older grandson, who is three. The stamps are all from a Fiskars set. I paper-pieced the turtle with sparkly cardstock and colored the hearts with a Sharpie marker. I added Diamond Glaze to the hearts above his head. I stamped and colored the background hearts.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!
