Cotton Reels

These little cotton reels are so sweet.  They are from THIS Hero Arts digikit.  I printed, coloured with a Copic marker, then wrapped coloured thread around and around (and around) them... As I don't have any embroidery thread this took some time :)  But I like the end effect.  And it gave me something to do while the football was on. :) The patterned paper is from THIS yummy pad.  I'm entering this card into the Fun and Cute Challenge at Moxie Fab World.  (If that's not your style, they also have Clean and Graphic, Shabby and Vintage, AND Classy and Elegant challenges too. :)

I've been creating ALL day.  Such FUN.

You are so stinkin' clever!!! I adore this card, and will be looking for this stamp set! By the way, Lucy, I used the large Hero Arts doily stamp that was in my blog candy from you, and it is SO pretty! It's up on my blog today if you want to see how nice it embossed! Hugs, and great card!
