Fred She Said Groundhog Blog Hop


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.

ONE LUCKY WINNER WILL RECEIVE:
$30 GC for the Fred She Said Store
$25 GC for Crop Stop ( provided by Tracey )

HERE IS MY PREDICTION:

I’m an ever optimist!  I say it will be an early spring…maybe it is just because I’m tired of the snow and ice?  LOL

Nice prizes huh?

I made two cards for this hop.  For the first card I’m using one of the new images in the FSS Store called FSS – Calla Lilies Colored Set.  I chose to make a White on White card for this challenge.  I used my oval cookie cutter dies and a square cookie cutter die.  I added a bunch of pearls just for the fun of it!  This is such a sweet and simple card.  I wanted to add more, but the more I tried to add the less pretty it looked.  So I left it sweet and simple.

My second card is monochromatic blue creation.  I used the set called Hummingbird & Columbine Pre-Coloured Set.  I used an embossing folder for the light blue layer, two Sizzix Die Flourishes (#11 & #9).  The Sentiment is from Create With TLC’s set called ‘One Moment Can Set‘.  I made the stick pin especially for this card.

Don’t you just love the pre-colored images from Fred She Said?  I know I sure do! : )

***BLOG CANDY ALERT!!!***

***Because there will only be one winner from this hop, I wanted to SHARE a special goodie!  This blue card with the stick pin plus a 50% off coupon to my Etsy Stick Pin Shop!  All you have to do to be entered into the drawing is mention that you would be interested in the 50% off coupon.  The card will be shipped with your order!  This brings me to my secret word…SHARED – you can say I SHARED a special goodie with you!  🙂  I will announce the winner on my blog the same day FSS announces their big winner – July 7th!

Now, be sure to leave me some love (and let me know you are interested in my 50% off coupon)!  Write down my secret word (Shared), and hop on over to Patty’s blog!
