Here Comes Summer! Blog Hop

Welcome to our "Here Comes Summer FRED SHE SAID" blog hop!!! If you just happened 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 and start your hop!

Please, we would love it if you commented on our posts.

Along the way, you will see a special CODE WORD. Collect them all up! Once you reach the end of the blog hop (which will be the Fred She Said Challenge blog), follow the instructions to make your entry and your name will go in for a draw for a $20 Gift Certificate for the Fred She Said Store!

Here is my Fred She Said creation:
I used Emma in the Strawberry Patch by Fred She Said and colored her with Prismacolor Colored Pencils and cut out with the Nestabilities Mega Curved Rectangle Die.  The Red Gingham paper is one of my card fronts available on CraftsUPrint here and the Strawberry paper is some scrapbook paper from my stash.  I added a Computer Generated Sentiment that was cut out with the Nestabilities Labels 1 die and then inked around the edge.  Some cute Heart Gems and a Double Organdy Bow finish off my card for this hop.

My special code word is:  SEASON

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