GROUND HOG DAY BLOG HOP ~ STARTS HERE!

Hi all, it's that time yup!  Time for a Blog Hop.... please come have some fun with us!  Please,  also check below for a 25% SALE COUPON :)  :)

Fred She Said is having a Ground Hog Day Blog Hop.  Tracey, from Fred She Said hails from Wiarton, Ontario, Canada, home of Wiarton Willie, the albino ground hog.  Every February 2nd, Willie emerges from his den to predict whether or not we will have an early Spring.  If he sees his shadow, he will become frightened and scurry back into his den, hailing 6 more weeks of winter.  If he does not see his shadow, he will declare an EARLY SPRING woohoo!  Tracey has asked the Fred She Said DT to make a card - either a "wintery" card ( if they think Willie will predict  a LATE SPRING ) or a "Flowery or Spring" card ( if they think he will predict an EARLY SPRING ).

Your job, dear blog hopper, is to hop along and TALLY up how many DT thought it will be an EARLY SPRING and how many predict a LATE SPRING.   Instructions on how to enter will be posted on the last stop at the FSS CHALLENGE BLOG.  Please leave some love on the DT's posts; they love to hear from you ;)  Please enter by Friday February 8th,  Midnight EST.

ONE LUCKY WINNER WILL RECEIVE:
$30 GC for the Fred She Said Store
$25 GC for Crop Stop

Yey!  I get to play....
HERE IS MY PREDICTION:






OK I am so hopeful.  I predict that Willie will predict an EARLY SPRING!  Today it has been snowing and blowing like crazy!   I so want this over! LOL  Today's card uses the Tulip Bouquet ( from Pre-Coloured Set)  and some distress inks for sponging.  The background is a free printable dictionary page from The Vintage Moth, that I white washed with white paint and added black distress to the edges.

So that was EARLY SPRING for me!  Tally it up :)  Now please go to Michelle's blog to continue your journey!

Here is the blog hop list in case you lose your way!
