FSS Challenge Blog    http://fss-challenge.blogspot.com/  ME too


Here is my creation for the HOP:




There is a new girl in the STORE!  Emma The Skipper :)  She comes coloured and uncoloured. 

**TRUE STORY -  Emma has just discovered the joys of skipping!  She likes to skip and chant by herself on the sidewalk in front of our house... a few weeks ago, she came in the house scraped up and a big bloody scuff  RIGHT under her eye.. she had tripped and face planted onto the sidewalk! She messed up her wrists, knee, eye and then later discovered a nasty scrape we missed on the back of her shoulder! She nearly got a black eye but she healed VERY FAST!  Poor thing! She is still skipping though :) **

I used a fab digital paper from Donna's new FSS collab set, Summer's Roses Paper Set.




I also added some pastel yellow pearl string and sheer 7/8" mono edge satin ribbon ( daffodil ) and some lace trim.  Pizzazz Aplenty has pearl string and ribbon in all kinds of colours.  I am loving sheer ribbon and pearl string together.  ... ok maybe I am in a rut LOL!


Now here is my special word....   Flowers
Now please go to DONNA's blog!  ... and have fun hopping :)

:)* Fred

Lovely card - like the embellishments you have used, especially the little flowers
in the same colour as the matting around rope-skipping Emma. Thanks for the blog hop.
