Fred She Said Blog Hop!!!

Welcome to the first "FRED SHE SAID" blog hop!!! If you just happen 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!

While your there you can check out all the new releases!! I have used one on my card today which I will show in a min but first here's the rules for t he hop.

You need to visit all the design team members blogs and collect a special code word from each one then when you have collected them all you need to email DEANNE with the whole phrase
and your name will go in for a draw for the 4 newest releases -Flowers, Doodledallion, Empty Pockets, and Smelling the Cherry Blossoms!! How cool is that??

The hop will run from today (15th Jan) - 22nd and the w
inner will be anounced on the FSS blog on the 23rd, so remember to check back then.

Here's my card made with Smelling the Cherry Blosso
ms. Tracey has also made some papers to "match" this image but I had already made my card before she made them so you will have to pop over to the FSS shop to see them.


I decided to make a step card for a change to show off the pretty image and flowers.
The Kimono girl image has been coloured with copics and I coloured the blossoms with a very light purple Copic then inked the edges with a darker purple and sprayed them with glimmer mist. The larger one have some pearls in the middle.

The butterflies are from another FSS set and I just printed them out then covered them with glitter and stuck them onto a piece of acetate so they would be 'flying' :)
Thye paper is the reverse side of a K&Co paper.

Here's a close up showing the image and some of the elements a bit better. I just love those butterflies :) lol

The word you need from me is SHE. Now hop along to Maria's blog and see what wonderful creation she has made.


Here's a list with the order of the blog hop just incase you get lost along the way :)
