Fred, She Said Early Autumn Blog Hop!


Welcome to the Fred, She Said Early Autumn Blog Hop! Summer has ended and memories remain! The FSS team wants to share with you the newly released FSS images!

 If you have arrived from Valerie’s blog, you are right on track. If you are just happening by, you will want to start on the FSS Blog.

Collect a secret word on each blog along the way, leave us some love on our posts and follow the directions at the end of the hop for your chance to win this FABULOUS PRIZE!

One winner will receive ALL of this:
$25 gift card to CropStop (provided by Fred She Said)
$25 GC to Fred She Said Store
 
Hop ends Friday, October 5, midnight EST.

My first card uses the new Blue Jay image.  This set is fun...it comes with multiple seasons!!

I paired it up with a cArt Us embossing folder, Spellbinders Fleur De Lis Rectangles, Making Memories decorative brad, SU! twine and some real birch bark!  My kids collect any they find for their mother...this one was dandy with real green stuff on it! *wink*

My second card features the new Poppies set.  This set also comes in black and white or various colors!

I paired it up with some Martha Stewart butterfly punches, SU! ribbon and embossing folder and a sentiment from Wordsworth.

I chose to go with pre-colored images this time around...it is just so fun to have options and you can enjoy the process of creating a card even when you don't choose to color!

Your secret word on my blog is TREE.

Your next stop on the hop is the FSS Challenge Blog.
