Fred She Said Early Autumn Blog Hop


Welcome to the Fred, She Said Early Autumn Blog Hop!  Summer has ended and memories remain!  The FSS team wants to share with you the newly released FSS images!
If you have arrived from Carolyn's blog,  you are right on track. If you are just happening by, you will want to start on the FSS Blog. (http://fred-she-said.blogspot.com/)

Collect a secret word on each blog along the way, leave us some love on our posts and follow the directions at the end of the hop for your chance to win this FABULOUS PRIZE!
One winner will receive ALL of this:

$25 GC to CropStop (provided by Fred She Said)
$25 GC to
Fred She Said Store
Hop ends Friday, October 5, midnight EST.

I have chosen the brand spanking new image call Blue Jay (uncolored) for fall that Tracey has designed. Ooooooooo fabulous! There are so many options for this image you'll just have to head on over to FSS and check it out. I have used paper from my hugely growing scrap pile, LOL and some MS seam binding ribbon & gold cord from an estate sale. My Bird is cut out with Spellbinders Labels Twenty Two, the flourish is Die-Namics Fancy Flourish, and my fall leaves are an older Cuttlebug set of four dies just called "Leaves" A bit of Cinnamon and Tierra Stickles and Wah La, my version of early fall.
Copics used to color Blue Jay are:
Beak & feet- C5, C1
White feathers- C1, C00
Blue feathers- B18, B12, B21
A touch of B95 if needed to make shadows
Any black needed on bird- C10
Your secret word on my blog is FROM
Your next stop on the hop is Zehra's blog.
