Get Your HOP On...and CREATE with Fresh Brewed Designs!

Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall,
All you got to do is call,
And I'll be there, Yes I will,
You've got a friend.   
~James Taylor

Welcome to Fresh Brewed Designs' 

If you are just getting here, please go back to the beginning with the beautiful, talented and super terrific Sheryl. If you are getting here from Kelly at Sandcastle Stamper, then you are right where you need to be! 

First, thank you for sharing part of your day with us today! Did you get the hint we left at the top of this post?  These song lyrics tell it all! It is that time of year again where we spend lots of time with our family and friends. We chat more, cook more, laugh more, make special holiday memories, and us crafters have so many amazing holidays to for which to create! This hop has something for every one of these things listed. We are celebrating holidays, friendships, and so much more!

And today, I chose to share this creation with you as the September Guest Designer for FBD! So far I'm absolutely loving being the GDT...Heather is super fabulous & wow, the regular DT gals are so super sweet & creative. I am just thrilled to be part of the fun! This card features the uber cute, and brand spankin' new, Knit Me Pretty stamp! Isn't it darling? I can just see it on so many fun grab one of your very own, click HERE!

Personally, I just love Candy Corn Girl & think she is just perfect for those upcoming Halloween projects all of us crafty peeps are getting ready to create, don't you?! And if you get your hop on with all of us, she could be all yours!

Okay, so now that we have you drooling it is time to send you on to the next hop stop. We know you are excited to continue your journey by hopping over to visit Rhonda at Bumblebee Creations and see what awesome project she has to share with you. However, before you do, please read the little extra bit of news below...
