Pretty Please with a Cherry Blossom on Top


Hi all, today is the FSS July Blog Hop to show you the great new releases!  I have two cards for today!  Here are the details of the Blog Hop and how to win some Fred She Said goodies:

How about some mid-summer fun with a Blog Hop?!

The Fred She Said Design Team girls have been busy creating and have some lovely eye candy for you ! Please leave them some love on their blogs.

At each stop on your way, there will be a special word... collect them up and there will be instructions at the end of your journey on how to enter.
The winning entry will receive $20 GC for the Fred She Said Store AND.... (AND!) ... a $20 USD Gift Certificate for CropStop so you can get that punch, or dies, inks, or embellishments you have been having you eye on :)

We will receive entries until Thursday August 5th Midnight EDT.

Here is my projects for your inspiration.  The first card features the new Cup Cake image and I must thank Tracey for creating it for me and you!  There is one cup cake image with a daisy on top and you can see it here, it is SOOO pretty!  Also there is a plain version that you can put any Fred She said flower or whatever you like on, as I did on my card, using the red Cherry Blossoms. I also paper pieced the cupcake wrapper and added glitter sparkles on the top and the cherry blossom centers.

You can see the inside is decorated also with the birthday sentiment that I printed off of my computer that says, "Will you tell me your REAL age, pretty please with a cherry blossom on top?"  So cute and versatile for many occasions as you can put anything on top your cupcake.  You will be seeing more of this cutie.



Next is another card using the Burdy image.  I just used the girl bird from the "Love is complicated" image to make this contrats on the news of an expectant baby. 


I printed the bird with the nest thought on watercolor paper and watercolored it with Tombows.  Then the image was glittered and Crystal Effects were added and was popped up. The scallop layers and the branch were cut from the Storybook Cricut cartridge and the lacy border is a Martha Stewart punch.

The inside has the sentiment, again printed off my computer that says, "A little burdy told me" and "Congratulations on your new nest".  This is one that you could color in your favorite drawing/paint program or even paper piece for a whimsical look which I will give a try next.

Two cards with a different look for your inspiration.  There is more in store for you along the way.  My special word is: "crafty" . Collect all the words along the way and enter at the FSS Challenge Blog, the last stop, and here is your next hop stop:


Have fun and here is the order of Blog Hop participants in case you lose your way.
