It's a Fred, She Said Valentine's Blog Hop!

     Can you believe it's almost February already!  Well Fred, She Said Designs is going to start celebrating Valentine's Day early with a super fun Blog Hop!  There are some great prizes up for grabs for TWO lucky winners.

1.  a $25.00 gift certificate to the Fred, She Said store
and
2. a $25.00 gift certificate to CropStop

     All you have to do is hop along through all of our lovely design team blogs, collect their secret word, and of course leave them some love.  At the last designer's blog you'll get instructions on what to do with the phrase you've collected.  The hop runs through midnight February 4th.
     If you got here from Robin's blog then you're right on track.  If not then go back to the start at Tracey-Lynn's blog so you don't miss any of the words.


     I'm using one of Tracey-Lynn's newest additions to the FSS store.  The roses on my card are one of  a set of pre-colored digital images called Hearts and Roses.  Aren't they pretty!  And they come in several colors!
     I hand pieced the little trellis, printed out the roses, and cut them out.  I popped them onto the trellis with a few added little wire tendrils(recycled from a Wild Orchid mulberry rose).  All the papers are from a Prima Jack and Jill 6 x 6 paper pad.  I tore the solid paper in several places on the edges and then "patched" the holes with the polka dot paper.  I used my sewing machine to stitch between the rips and added some eyelets and hemp cord to the large tear.  The solid paper was a little TOO solid so I inked up a new splatter patterned rubber stamp I got on clearance at Mike's and added some Shabby Shutter distress inks splotchs.  Some pearly butterflies with wire antennae, more pearls, a pink fiber bow(it's not that neon IRL), and a sentiment from the digi set finish off the card.  Hope you liked it!
     Are you ready for my secret word?

It's FILL

     Your next stop on the hop is the very talented Danielle so pop on over there and see what she has in store.
     Happy Hopping!

  4. What a lovely card, Tracy! I love the lattice trellis you created for your rose to "climb" on, and adore your cut work roses. The little tendrils are such a fabulous touch. Love that those images come pre-colored. Makes life so much easier for a coloring-impaired person such as myself. :)

  23. I was a little stumped about your comment on my blog about the Mike's rubber stamp - til I got here ! How awesomely funny we both chose to use it on the very same day, I would say great minds and all that, but mine is not quite on your level today. This is truly one of a kind - nobody does it like you Tracy.
