Fred She Said Blog Hop

If you have came for the Fred She Said blog hop and have just came from Michelle's blog, then you are on the right track, if not you need to start at Michelle's blog.

It's time for another Fred She Said blog hop and of course there is a great prize to be won! As usual the dt girls have made some fantastic cards to show off the new FSS designs so lots of eye candy for you to see along the way. Please leave them some love on their blogs :)

At each stop on your way, there will be a special word......collect them all up and there will be instructions at the end of your journey on how to enter.
The winning entry will receive $20 GC for the Fred She Said Store AND.... (AND!) ... a $20 USD Gift Certificate for CropStop so you can get that punch, or dies, inks, or embellishments you have been having you eye on :)
We will receive entries until Thursday August 5th Midnight EDT.

Here is the order of Blog Hop participants in case you lose your way.

Tracey ( end of your journey and blog hop entry instructions)

Here's my card made with the new Gerbera Daisy in a Jar digi. There is also a a peony in a jar and they both come uncoloured and coloured.



I know this is sooo not my style of card, but I wanted to keep it simple to show off the image.
I coloured the image with Promarkers the other day when I coloured a pile of other images so I didn't have any paper in mind ot use with it, but I found this one in my stash and thought it went perfectly with the colours I had done the image in......I was quite surprised because the flowers even look quite similar, that really was a stroke of luck! :)
I wanted to use some organza ribbon as the other purple ribbons I have just didn't look right, so I took some white organza and coloured it with a promarker so it matched my image perfectly, then finished off with a few purple gems.
It was really hard for me not to add more embelishments to this but I think the paper is busy enough on it's own without adding to it so I just left it as it is:)


Now my special word is......oh no I can't remember what it is!! ....................only joking, that would be a bit of a disaster wouldn't it?!
My word is TIME

Your next stop is Carol H and I know she will have something stunning to show you!

Thanks for stopping by and happy hopping!
