Christmas Rose - Fred She Said Blog Hop


Good Morning and welcome to the Fred She Said Blog Hop. This is my first blog hop as a New Design Team Member and I'm so excited to show you some of my artwork with these fantastic Images.

 If you came here from Tracey Lynn's blog, then you are on the right track. If you just happened upon my blog, please go back to Tracey's blog so you start from the beginning. You want to follow in order and collect a word from each of our blogs to make a sentence. You will get instruction on the last blog as to what to do with your sentence and  be entered into a random drawing to win $20 CAD from FSS Store AND $20 GC for CropStop.  What a fantastic Prize!!!

We love to hear from you so please leave a comment on each blog before moving to the next. Your input is greatly appreciated.

My card was inspired by a sketch from Midnight Madness.

I used the Digi image called Christmas Rose. It contains Christmas Rose and Christmas Rose & Candles digis, 4 Ready-to-print sheets, and BONUS Christmas Sentiments Set.

My image was colored with Copic Markers. However, if you prefer, you can also purchase the colored image pack. The rose and leaves were printed two extra time, colored, cut out and layered with foam tape for more dimension

The DP is from the Mistletoe collection from Close to my Heart.

The Hand Stitching was done with Matching Embroidery Floss

Now hop on over to Shelly's Blog. But before you do, my word is FOR
