March 2, 2015 Spool Trio

  

The snow is at least 6 in. deep - and here it is March.  So ready for spring here in MO.  I decided to fill my afternoon with some creativity and make a couple of cards and then I need to write some notes to put in my chemo buddies cards for this week.  First let me explain why I choose this - the theme over at Great Impressions  is Go Green - well I happen to love Great Impressions stamps and have several in my collection -ok more than several...there is a cute little stamping store in Kimmswick MO that carries Great Impressions and when I shop there I head for them first.  I had a frog, I had flowers but I decided to do these darling spools of thread.  Colored the spools with copic markers and then paper pieced the "thread" in a variety of green papers from a paper pack from DCWV that my friend Donna gave me a couple of years ago.  I love double sided paper packs and this pack is double sided.  I then decided to go with the sketch from Sketch Saturday.  Challenges:
     Great Impressions - Go Green
     Sketch Saturday - follow sketch
     Word Art Wednesday - anything goes
     613 Avenue Create - anything goes
