Fred She Said Fabulous Fall Blog Hop


Greetings and welcome to the Fred She Said Blog Hop. We are calling it the Fred She Said Fabulous Fall Blog Hop. We were to use a Fall Colour Combo - any 2 or more colors from Red, Green, Yellow, Orange or Gold ... and sky blue. For my card I used the Colored Hollyhocks set that you can find here. I was going for a warm feeling with the reds and distress inks. As hot as it has been here in the South this summer, I have been sad to see the summer fade-hence the warmth I was going for! The flourishes were cut from old cereal boxes with a sizzix die and glittered with bronze Martha Stewart Glitter. Martha Stewart Large and Medium butterfly punches were used for the butterflies. The die cut is Spellbinders. If you came by way of Michelle, then you are on the right tract.

My word is HEART.

Now that you have all the words, it is time to go to the FSS Challenge Blog to enter to win the following prizes!

THE PRIZE:
£15 Gift Voucher to Bearly Mine Designs
$10 Prize Package of yummy goodies chosen by Judy from Pizzazz APlenty
$30 Gift Certificate to the Fred She Said Store

Instructions on how to enter are on the FSS Challenge Blog

Entries close on Friday September 30th at midnight EDT and winners will be announced Saturday October 1st.

Thanks for stopping by. We hope you enjoyed the blog hop.

Gorgeous, Carol! The colours are awesome. I agree I will miss the summer... the mornings are getting a tad too chilly for my liking. I think we are a bit ahead of you, the leaves are turning and falling already.
