Fred She Said Blog Hop!

Welcome to the first "FRED SHE SAID" blog hop!!!

If you just happen to drop by my blog and you are not aware of this wonderful event taking place, please go back to the "FRED SHE SAID" blog here and start your hop! Please, we would LOVE it if you commented on our posts (We all love to hear what you think of our creations ;-)). We totally love "Fred She Said" images and would like to hear how you feel about them too! Also, along the way, you will see a special CODE WORD. Collect them all up! Once you reach the end of the blog (which will be the "Fred She Said" Challenge blog), email DEANNE with the special code sentence and your name will go in for a draw for the 4 newest releases -Flowers, Doodledallion, Empty Pockets, and Smelling the Cherry Blossoms.

Here is my "Fred She Said" creation. I have used the brand new Smelling the Cherry Blossom set to make this card. The card front has all been Digitally manipulated in Photoshop to give the "appearance" of multiple layers and matting, but there are actually no layers or 3-D on this card. The image itself has been colored with Prismacolor Color Pencils and blended with Baby Oil in my version of the Gamsol Techniuqe. The ribbon and pearls are from my stash. The whole thing has been layered on Gold Metallic paper from American Crafts Specialty Paper line.

My special code word is LOVE

Here is a list of the blog hoppers in case you lose your way:
