Fred She Said Blog Hop-Teacup Pansies


Welcome to the SECOND "FRED SHE SAID" blog hop!!! If you just happened 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!

Please, we would love it if you commented on our posts. Here, at "Fred" we have been getting all FLOWERY to hasten the arrival of SPRING! Come see what PRETTIES we have in store for you :)

Also, 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 the "Fred She Said" Challenge blog), follow the instructions to make your entry and your name will go in for a draw for a $20 Gift Certificate for the Fred She Said Store!


Here is my "Fred She Said" creation:
For the blog hop, I made the new "Teacup Pansies". This is perfect to send to someone to let them know your are thinking of them as Pansy's are the flower for "Thoughts of You". Here I have made a card with an added gift tucked inside....this teapot tea bag holder that I created.I printed out two sheets of the flowers and I printed 4 images of the teacup with pansies. All of the flowers are three dimensional. These were all colored with chalks and stickles were added to the flowers and leaves.I used the new Martha Stewart around the page Pansy punch and glued a gold bead in the center of all the pansies. I added tiny pearls to the cup detail as you can see. I stitched around the outside of my card. I can't tell you how much I love these Pansies. This shows you how my teapot fits inside the pocket I created especially for it. I repeated the flowers and the punches for inside the card.This is the teapot untied showing you how the teabag is in the pocket. I created the teabag tag with a spellbinders die cut and attached another Pansy to match this side.Within the next couple of days I will be looking into how I can bring you my pattern for this teapot teabag holder. I have all the pieces ready to scan and I have all the measurements all written down. So if you are interested in doing the teapot....stay tuned for a tutorial.

My special code word is: SAID!
