My Challenge and Sketch Blog

Creatively Artsy is my CTMH blog and this is my FUN Blog.
Here is where I can use any products and just do my own thing. I started out with just one sketch challenge and now I'm hooked. I wish there were more hours in the day.

Fred She Said Ground Hog Day 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 )

FRED SHE SAID also has a Ground Hog Day WEEKEND SALE COUPON

HERE IS MY PREDICTION: EARLY SPRING




I used the pre-colored Tulip Bouquet in Pink for my card.

The design of my card was inspired by this week's sketch at TechnoStamper
The papers used are NEW Close to my Heart paper, Chantilly.

The Hand Stitching was done in my own unique design with matching Embroidery Floss.

Now hop on over to Carolyn's Blog and see what she's predicting.

Here is the blog hop list in case you lose your way!
