Share the Love Blog Hop

Welcome to Paper Piecings By Nikki's first bi-monthly blog hop. This month, the design team has been asked to create something with love. If you have seen any of Nikki's new releases, you'll see that we had no problem picking and choosing which piecings to use. So get cozy and be prepared to be inspired...
Share the Love Blog Hop
If you've arrived from Patti's Blog , then you are in the right place. If you want to start at the beginning, hop on over to and start there.

For my project, I decided to use Nikki's freebie. 
Card base is cut at 4 1/4 x 11 inches
For the wording, I typed them on my computer and cut them out.  I did search the web for the correct color for each cause and thought it would be fun to mount them on flags. 
One of the reasons we are "Sharing the Love" with this blog hop is to let you all know that every purchase you make at Paper Piecings By Nikki, $1 is donated to charity. Giving back to this world we live in. We also want to share some love with you. Go to and pick up your 'Share the Love" Freebie that is on the bottom of her donation page. We would love to have you create something special with it and then link it up to either Paper Piecings By Nikki facebook page or her blog Either way, you will be eligible to win $20 to shop in her store!  You are going to love her designs!!

To be eligible to win, you must do the following:
  1. 'Like' Paper Piecings By Nikki on facebook.
  2. "Follow" her on
  3. Leave a comment on Nikki's blog or facebook telling of you favorite charity and why it is close to your heart
  4. Link your project, using the freebie - or another PPBN piecing on either her blog or facebook page - or both for a second chance to win.

The challenge will remain open for one week. Nikki will choose the winner next Friday. Make sure you leave an address so we can contact you.
