Fred She Said Ground Hog Day Blog Hop!

************************************************



Fred She Said Ground Hog Day Blog Hop
Fred She Said is having a Ground Hog Day Blog Hop. Tracey, from Fred She Said hails from Wiarton, Ontario, Canada, home of Wiarton Willie, the albino ground hog. Every February 2nd, Willie emerges from his den to predict whether or not we will have an early Spring. If he sees his shadow, he will become frightened and scurry back into his den, hailing 6 more weeks of winter. If he does not see his shadow, he will declare an EARLY SPRING woohoo! Tracey has asked the Fred She Said DT to make a card - either a "wintery" card ( if they think Willie will predict a LATE SPRING ) or a "Flowery or Spring" card ( if they think he will predict an EARLY SPRING ).

Your job, dear blog hopper, is to hop along and TALLY up how many DT thought it will be an EARLY SPRING and how many predict a LATE SPRING. Instructions on how to enter will be posted on the last stop at the FSS CHALLENGE BLOG.

ONE LUCKY WINNER WILL RECEIVE:
$30 GC for the Fred She Said Store
$25 GC for Crop Stop ( provided by Tracey )
 Blog Hop closes Friday February 8th, Midnight EST.

HERE IS MY PREDICTION:




EARLY SPRING!!!
 
Clean and Simple for me today!! My card uses the beautiful Cosmos pre-colored digi and paper pricking frame from the Diamond Rose set.  I paired it with some Simple Stories' designer paper and added a touch of Tim Holtz's Frayed Burlap Distress Ink!

Excellent card. Love the use of pricking around the image. Think I might search out my pricking templates as I haven't used them for ages! Thanks for the inspiration. Liv

Gorgeous card! I agree with you and am hoping it's Spring!
From what I understand that is what has been predicted. Fingers crossed that it's true! ;)
