Fred She Said blog hop

please scroll down to the next post for my Charisma card

Welcome to the Fred She Said blog hop!!
If you came here from Maria's blog then you are on the right track but if you have just stumbled onto my blog or didn't know about the blog hop, then you need to go start at the Fred She Said Blog and see what Tracey has in store for you!

If you have hopped with us before you will know how it works, but for those of you who don't, all you need to do is visit all the design team members blogs and pick up all the special words along the way, not forgetting to leave everyone some love :)
When you reach the end of the hop, you should have all the words collected and there will be instructions on the challenge blog to tell you what you have to do next, simple as that, and you could win yourself a $20 CAD to spend in the Fred She Said store AND a $20 gift certificate to spend at CropStop!!!

Now the design team were asked this time to use our favourite FSS image in our favourite style.
For me that was very easy because Tracey has just drawn the sweetest little image Emma The Caroling Angel which I love so I just had to use it. Of course as always this image comes in lots of varuations including one with a halo but I opted to use the one without a halo for this card.


 Sorry it's not a very good pic, but hopefully you can see most of the detail.
I coloured Emma with Promarkers and used Dazzling Diamonds glitter on her wings all the other white bits on her. You can't really see the sparkle here but it looks really sparkly in real life :)
The papers are by Nitwits and were free in a magazine, as was the sentiment.
I also used the paper roses and leaves template set to make the flowers, as this is my favourite FSS flower set, in fact it is my all time favourite flower set ;) They are so versatile and I love how much different kinds of flowers you can make with it.
I used the single flower images and sized them down so I had 3 different sizes of teh same flower and a one of the tiny little ones for the middle, then printed them on normal copy paper and coloured with promarkers, scrunched up, then just opened them up and layered them together with a gem in the centre.
The tulle is from my stash and the pretty pin is one a friend made and sent me :)

Now the word you need from me is DESIGN and you need to go see Michelle next. I just know she will have something beautiful for you to look at!

Here is a list of the hop order just incase you loose your way.

Lora You are here :)
