Good Morning!

Happy March!  I know many of us are hoping that spring is right around the corner; yes, we just got hit with about 5 inches of snow here in St Louis.  I know, I know- it could be a lot worse!
A friend of mine's daughter is studying abroad in Sweden- talk about snow!  She is such a go getter and so willing to jump in with both feet.  I wanted to send her a card of encouragement.  She is an avid reader and English major, so I just had to use this image from StampinBella!

I paper pieced a   couple of pillows and  colored the rest with Copics.  I added a bit of ribbon, but since this has to go to Sweden, I did not add a bow to keep the bulkiness to a minimum.

I am linking her up to Bellarific Friday where the challenge week is 'ribbon or washi.
I am also linking up to the Challenge Blog over at 7 Kids College Fund for their Anything Goes challenge.
CAS on Sunday's challenge this week is 'Girl Power'.  Not sure if this is considered CAS or not by the team as there are colored images in the DT samples; gonna give it a whirl.  Sorry if I am breaking any rules!
The Pink Elephant's challenge this week is 'Girly Girl'.  

Thanks so much for stopping by!
