CAS-ual Friday (Paper piecing)

I'm really happy it's Friday! You?
Have any plans? 
I'm taking my boys to Bounce Magic with a friend. 
Believe me when I say you need the support of a friend in a place like that! *chuckle*
It's a giant indoor bounce house/arcade/chuck-e-cheese type of place. Masses of screaming children running wild and spreading chaos (and germs...ewwww) everywhere.
Remind me again why I'm doing this? (While my more worldly friends go to a show, share a bottle of chardonnay, and listen to jazz curled up by the fireplace) 

Well anyway, this week's CAS-ual Friday challenge is what we're here for!

And it's all about the paper piecing!
 It's such a fun technique and simple to do too.
I used my new set, Fruity For You, from The Craft's Meow, who happen to be our sponsor this week! Aren't those plums adorable?

I also had to throw in some twine from The Twinery. *grin* Just couldn't resist!

Grab some stamps and some scraps of paper and join us this week for the CAS-ual Friday challenge! We love seeing all your projects.

Thanks for stopping by,

Yowser, those plums are perfect for paper-piecing! Thanks so much Dana! I adore the way you've showcased Fruity for You!

Fantastic card! I really like the embossing folder you used that has "missing" dots. The purple papers on the plums are great:)
