There will be ONE lucky winner ( selected randomly from the entries) of this prize package:

2 digi sets from Bearly Mine Designs

$25 Gift Certificate for the Fred She Said Store

At the last stop of the HOP, there will be instructions on how to make your entry.  Along your journey, each stop will have a special word, collect them up!  Blog Hop entry date ends Friday April 1 midnight EDT.

Michelle let's me play along and I get to go FIRST! woohoo!

I used a RED version of the Parrot Tulip from the Pre-coloured set and decoupaged it.  The paper is a freebie from Bearly Mine Designs.  I accented the oval with frosted lace Stickles and some black pearl string.

EDIT- I was asked how I attach my pearl string - I have used Zip Dry or Ranger Inkssentials  Matte Accents Glue. You have to work fast with the Zip Dry.  I make a small bead line of glue in 3-4" sections and lay pearls in it and hold in place until it sets or seems to stay put.  Lately I am preferring the Matte Accents.  :)


OK, my special word is....  Hippety   Now please go to the next hop stop at  Donna's BLOG.

Here is list of the BLOG HOP Participants, in case you lose your way :)

Easter Chicky & a Tulip

Hi!  I have 2 new things in the store, yey!

I wanted to draw a ruffly tulip that could be used as a focal image or to  edge a frame.  I'll have a card made soon to show you what I mean... not so good with the words at the moment ;)

Parrot Tulip ( digi and also a precoloured set):

.... as you can see... I just couldn't stop making different colours. LOL.   I LOOOOVE tulips.


And this one was a request from DT Carol.  I just loved that freebie chicky too.. and now he is ready for Easter!

Easter Chicky ( Digi and Pre-Coloured Sets):

...in the STORE

Yey new stuff to play with :)   All in THE STORE.

Apologies to y'all and to my DT... I am running late.  Let's just say this took me longer than I expected LOL. 

Lenten Roses - Hellebores... a request!  Digi and Pre-Coloured... wee!


And I had my heart on a series of Angels.  This angel spoke to me... she said I needed a good helping of Patience.  I tell ya, this girly gets frustrated super duper fast... I am God's work in progress.  I thank Him every day for putting people and family in my life that have the patience to put up with this one who has "None"  ;)  Anyway, Patience hovers quietly and calmly and waits.. she rocks.



You will notice a fairy wing version.. well this, my friends is version one.. I took it to the DH and he told me.. "those are NOT angel wings, those are fairy wings"  well I was going for cute perky peppy wings... OK I obliged him.. thus 2 versions. 

 and 12, yes, a 12 coloured set.... yes, it was a long week grin!


...oh and some sentiments to go with the angels and some verses that also spoke to me:


... more on the way.. I am NOT done yet.  Have a great weekend!
