Teacups and Posies!!

Welcome to the SECOND "FRED SHE SAID" blog hop!!! If you just happened to drop by my blog and you are not aware of this wonderful event taking place, please go back to the "FRED SHE SAID" blog here and start your hop!

Please, we would love it if you commented on our posts. Here, at "Fred" we have been getting all FLOWERy to hasten the arrival of SPRING! Come see what PRETTIES we have in store for you :)

Also, along the way, you will see a special CODE WORD. Collect them all up! Once you reach the end of the blog hop (which will be the "Fred She Said" Challenge blog), follow the instructions to make your entry and your name will go in for a draw for a $20 Gift Certificate for the Fred She Said Store!

Here is my "Fred She Said" creation:



I'm loving this gorgeous tea cup full of pansies! I love pansies...can't grow them...but I love them just the same!! I colored these with Copic Markers RV10, R85, R39, E42, E50, YG17, YG67, YG05, YR23, Y11. I cut the image out and popped it up on foam tape. It is layered on an Embossing Arts Die Cut from ages ago...could it be *vintage?!* I ran it through Cuttlebug's Paisley Embossing Folder for some added texture. I finished the card by matting a Martha Stewart punched piece for my *table.* This would be perfect for a get well, thinking of you or birthday card for a tea-loving friend!

My special code word is: IN
