Pretty Little face Bobbins

It feels good to be creating a bit again. I am not sure why, but the summer seems to have me busier than I had hoped, and I haven't carved much creative time in.
I made these for a swap in Paper Traders. They are painted on cardboard embroidery floss bobbins, which are just over an inch wide. It was fun to get my paints out and create little pretty faces. It should be a fun swap- can't wait to see what everyone else comes up with. :)

Look at what the cat dragged in!

Now that I have your attention, LOL, I will have to explain. I was just settling in for bed around 10PM, and from the open window came the cat bolting in, with something in her mouth. She was moving so quickly, that I could only imagine it was a mouse, since it was squealing wildly. As I chased after her, she was bound and determined to elude me, but I found her downstairs in the basement in Quincy's room, she had let the creature free, and was just about to pounce on it again, when Abby flipped the light on and startled her. Crouched in the corner was a tiny baby rabbit.
We knew we had bunnies in the backyard under the shed, but we didn't know we had babies! It was so cute, and scared to death.
I scooped it up and put it in a cardboard box, til I could get dressed and let it outside back with it's family. Good thing that cat is stupid, and doesn't know how to hunt. I checked it over best I could, and the only thing I found was a bit of slobber on it's back from the trip in the house in the cat's mouth. Here are pictures of the cute little thing.
