Fourth Fred She Said Blog Hop!!


Welcome to our FOURTH "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 and start your hop!

Along the way, please leave a comment on the blogs, follow the instructions at the end of the blog hop, at the Challenge blog, to make your entry and your name will go in for a draw for a $20 Gift Certificate for the Fred She Said Store! Enjoy your hop!

My creation this week is along the masculine line. I'm in the middle of making another Fred She Said wedding card similar to last week's post, so it's been fun to switch gears and go masculine!!
I used the new Old Truck Digi set....how fun is this! I used a pre-colored version since I was pressed for time...but it's the perfect way to make a quick masculine card that your fella will love! Be sure to check out the video on the Fred She Said blog of how Tracey colors these! Fascinating!
I used BasicGrey's Marrekah Collection, some Paper Wishes screw brads and a touch of distressing for my clean and simple masucline birthday card. Sentiment is by A Muse, and fits the fun feel of the image perfectly!

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

Love your card design and this image is fab! My father-in-law had an old blue truck that looked so much like this one. Wonderful image for masculine cards.

Wow, love your card and the fact that you were pressed for time and it came out this fab is amazing. I must try using the precolored images. My DH is into classic "old" vehicles so this would be perfect!
