It's a Fred, She Said Blog Hop!

Note:  This blog hop runs through October 7th at 12:00 midnight EDT!!!
Welcome to the Fred, She Said Designs Blog Hop!  If you came here from Anne's blog, then you're in the right place.  If not then you need to start at Tracey's blog.  Each stop on the blog hop will have a wonderful project for you to see AND a special word.  Make sure you visit each blog and collect all the words in the correct order so you can be eligible for the prizes.  Tracey's giving away $20.00 CAD worth of FSS goodies and a $20.00 gift certificate to the Crop Stop.

This is my first blog hop as a new member of the Fred, She Said Design Team and I'm so excited!  FSS is owned and operated by the incredibly talented Tracey Lynn Miller.  All you have to do is go take a peek at what's in the FSS store and you'll know what I mean. 

We have an open theme for this hop so that you can get a look at the individual styles that make up the Design Team AND get a look at some of the incredible images Tracey has created.  We have some awesome designers on this team so make sure you see them all!

Anyone who has ever visited my blog before knows I am a FLOWER NUT!  I love to make my own paper flower embellishments and Tracey has several digital flower sets that make it so easy.  For my card I chose to use the Paper Roses and Leaves set and the Monarch Butterflies set.

The flowers and leaves can be printed out in sets or individually and you can resize them to fit whatever you're making.  Cut them out, add a little embossing and some ink, stack and glue and voilà!  You have a beautiful flower.  Both the flower and butterfly sets have SVG files for those of you who have digital cutting programs or you can cut by hand like I do. 

Dont forget to visit ALL the blog hop stops and collect the special words in the correct order, and you'll find instructions at the last stop on how to e-mail the phrase to Tracey for your chance to win.
My special word is
"TO"
and your next stop is Sonya's blog.
It's not necessary to leave a comment but I'd love it if you would.  So get hopping and have fun!
Blessings,
