Paper Piecing Challenge in the Moxie Fab World!

Nothing like the last minute to get creativity are three entries for Moxie Fab World's paper piecing challenge.
Supplies: Sweet puppy & sentiment from Inkadinkado;
papers from AC "Abode;"
orange flower from Recollections;
Distress ink (antique linen) & fineline marker for ground;
Puppy is paper-pieced using Basic Grey brown scrap & white cardstock

Supplies: cake stamp from The Cat's Pajamas;
All papers & paper piecing done with My Mind's Eye "Tickled Pink" papers;
pink polka dot layer cut with Nestabilities Labels 4;
Mod Podge Dimensional magic used on the cake stands, heart, and cherry on top;
Martha Stewart markers used for the dotty background

Supplies: stamps all from Cornish Heritage Farms Kim Hughes Collection;
banner paper from My Mind's Eye "True Blue;"
Owl & branch paper-pieced with Basic Grey "Origins" and white cardstock (eyes, beak, toes);
hat paper-pieced with K & Co "Citronella;" coloured with Martha Stewart markers;
buttons from Basic Grey; banner tag from Martha Stewart
I think my very favourite is Mr. Owl up there - I love his expression! I really, truly suck at creating scenes with masking - I am just too impatient, and I nearly always smear the ink. This particular owl card I had attempted via masking, and after the 4th botched image I decided I liked him better paper-pieced anyway. So there. (*blows raspberry*)
