Fred She Said Blog Hop ~ New SPRING Images!


Welcome to our THIRD "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!

We would love it if you commented on our posts....it makes it as fun for us as it is for you!

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!

My creation this week is a card....they are my favorite thing to make. I love to cut, you will know if you've visited my blog much! Tracey is ushering spring in with some gorgeous floral images....and though I do not like Lilies of the Valley in my garden...(they take over!), I do love the paper version! I colored my image with copic markers YG17, YG25, YG03, YG00, B34 and B41. I cut it out and layered it some blue papers from my scrap drawer....a simple card that really pops the image beautifully.

My special code word is: HOPE

Here is a list of the blog hoppers in case you lose your way:
