'With Love' cards

Good morning everyone, another 'Less is More' post today.
This week they want us to do some ......................................
Paper Piercing
"We want to see some tiny holes dotted around on your
 creations this week" 
I don't do much paper piercing so it had me stumped for a
 while. Then I had this idea so just decided to go for it.
Hmmm must practice more I think, anyway here's what
 I came up with.Two cards as I wasn't happy with one, you decide
which one you prefer !
ps. Not a happy bunny today as the new bed we were expecting
 today hasn't arrived. It seems the van broke down, because it's a
Superking/expensive one the manufacturers insisted they deliver it
 themselves.Just glad we didn't move our old one first ! Sorry about
the lack on commenting yet again, still not feeling great.
