Welcome to the Fred, She Said Winged Things Blog Hop! Summer is in full swing and flying by fast, and the FSS team wants to share a winged wonderland with you!

If you have arrived from Maureen’s blog, you are right on track. If you are just happening by, you will want to start on the FSS Blog.

One winner will receive ALL of this:
$25 GC to CropStop
£15 GC to Bearly Mine Designs

Hop ends Friday, August 3, midnight EST.

I decided to get a jump start on Christmas with my Christmas in July Card. I used the Pre-colored Christmas Cardinal along with some old Bo Bunny papers I had lying around. I don't know how I could have had these beautiful papers and never used them.
The hand stitching was done with matching embroidery floss.

Your secret word on my blog is "The"
Your next stop on the hop is Valerie’s blog.
