Fred, She Said Blog Hop!

Note:  You can find my tutorial for this card here.

     It's Friday and that means it's Fred, She Said Blog Hop Time!  If you got here from Carol's incredible blog then you're right on track.  If not then please go back to the start at Tracey-Lynns so you don't miss out on all the requirements to qualify for the prize.
     We have a special guest co-sponsoring the hop with us this time and it's Donna from Bearly Mine Designs.  This time the hop will have ONE prize winner who will get a $25 Fred, She Said Gift Certificate AND a $25 CropStop Gift Certificate PLUS 2 Digi Paper Sets from Bearly Mine Designs.  WOW!  What a prize!
     All you have to do to win is collect the special words at each of our designers blogs and then follow the directions on the last stop.  Of course we'd love for you to leave us each a comment and a little love along the way.
     My project is a bit of an experiment.  I saw a card designed similarly to this one on one of the blogs I subscribe to, but unfortunately there were no directions so I had to wing it.  Suffice to say I will be doing some tweaking on the next one because it didn't come out quite right, but it's pretty close.
     I've used the daffodil image from the Fred, She Said Spring Flowers set.  The image is colored with Copic markers.



     As you can see in the second photo, the image part of the card is actually a separate piece that slides into the pocket of the main card.  There are so many ways you can decorate this card.  As soon as I get all the "correct" measurements figured out, I'll post them here on my blog in case you'd like to make one.

     Hope you like the card! 
     Without further ado I'll let you know that my special word is:

HOP

     and that's just what you need to do to get to the next talented FSS designer blog and that would be Darsie.
     Have fun on the hop and thanks for dropping in.
