Fred She Said Blog Hop


Welcome to the first ever "Fred She Said" Blog Hop!!! I am just thrilled to have you stop by my blog today for this fabulous event. If you just happened upon my blog and didn't know about the blog hop, please go back to the "Fred She Said" blog and start your hop!

Everyone on the design team loves "Fred She Said" images and would love to hear what you think of them too!!! Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think of the new release of this Fred She Said design.

Along the way, you will see a special CODE WORD. Collect them all up! Once you reach the end of the blog hop (which will be at the "Fred She Said" Challenge Blog), email DEANNE with the special code sentence and your name will go into the drawing for the four (4) new releases-Flowers, Doddledallion, Empty Pockets, and Smelling the Cherry Blossoms.

Here is my creation from the BRAND NEW RELEASE of the "Fred She Said" design called

Smelling the Cherry Blossoms
Don't you just love this very sweet little girl. And the Cherry Blossoms are out of this world. I just had to use lots of them!!! I printed this digi on water color paper and water colored her and the flowers. I used gold stickles in the center of the flower for the stamen and crystal stickles for the outline.

This is the front of the card with the envelope that I also created to go along with it. The image has been popped up along with the Cherry Blossoms for a 3-D effect. I used the new Lattice Martha Stewart border punch and an exclusive Cuttlebug folder on the black background that looks like basket weave.

This is a better view of the matching envelope. It is made from a kit from Priscillastyles found here. The corner dies are from Sizzx and so is the leafy branch under the Cherry Blossoms. I also used the scalloped Spellbinders die.

This is the inside of my card. I used all the same elements, but in a different composition to match the front. I hope that you have enjoyed viewing this card and will find some inspiration for your own creation! I really enjoyed putting this together and was so inspired by the image...I couldn't help myself!!! LOL
