"FRED FOR ALL" BLOG HOP STARTS HERE!

Woohoo Everybody!  Are you ready for another BLOG HOP!?!

This Blog Hop's theme is a "Fred for All"  ( LOL.. thanks to Deanne for the pun!)  A Fred Free for All.... the DT were asked to make ANYTHING from what I have in the store!  ...which means YES Fred is a liitle late with the new goodies! :O  ;)

Actually about this time last year the fledgling FSS DT's started OPERATION FRED SHE SAID using and reintroducing all Fred's pretties... so kind of fitting for another year of FRED!  Next month the Fred She Said Store will have our Second Anniversary!  I feel like I just started.. times flies when you are having FUN!

...Speaking of FUN let's start the festivities... ON WITH THE BLOG HOP!


OK the rules...

You need to start HERE at the Fred She Said Blog, and go visit ALL these places and leave some blog-loving comments to all the DT members.  There are special instructions at the end of your journey on how to enter to win  a $20 GC for the FSS Store :)

This blog hop will run from today, April 15th until April 22nd. On the 22nd, the winner will be announced on the "Fred She Said" blog  .

Here is my card for the HOP:



I used an orange flower from a sheet from  Polka Dotty Flowers Set   and a digital paper from The Purple Blossoms Kit .  I used Distress Inks to sponge colour on the die cuts (Spellbinder Petite Ovals, BossKut Ornamental Flourish ).  The sentiment is a "inkjet rub-on" experiment gone wrong!  LOL  I printed on acetate and rubbed it on my card stock..BUT some of the other things on the acetate smudged on my cardstock... so I grabbed a stippling brush and  splotched some black ink around the frame to hide it LOL! I added distress stickles as well and also put some on the orange bud. I made my own flower center with glitter glue, a flower center punch, some gold paint and a gold dew drop.    My new EK punch Scroll and Dots finally came in.  My new favourite border punch!

I hope you enjoyed my card.  Now please leave a comment then go to SHELLY's blog :)

Have a great day and have fun hopping!

:)*  Fred

Such a pretty card, and just goes to show that accidents can be good things! The black stippling makes the background look different - in a very good way.
