A Freshly Brewed Challenge

    Please scroll down to the next post to see the Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge for today!

Fall is in the air and it is time for a fun new Freshly Brewed Challenge!  The challenge is to use the colors purple and black. I have always thought this was a striking color combo and was glad to revisit this old favorite.  Heather has added   A LOT of fun new images to her store since I posted last, so please, please, please go by and take a look.  Also make sure your visit the
Freshly Brewed Challenge Blog and see the wonderful creations from the DT!  I used this adorable little cutie called  "Angel Cake Fall Wagon"  she is sooo cute pulling her little wagon of pumpkins!
I also wanted to give a big shout-out and send huge hugs and kisses to the amazing Rhonda of
I came home one day a couple of weeks ago to find a package in my mailbox.  I was like, uhmmmm what have I ordered????? I couldn't remember doing any recent late night Internet shopping and I was a little disappointed in myself for so obviously breaking my new "no more Internet shopping" rule!
Any way so I somewhat reluctantly open the package to find.....................Ohhhhh, it is a baby gift for my new grandson Gage!!!!! Are you kidding me!!! I immediately text my daughter, who can not believe that someone who doesn't know her would be so kind!  WOW! The thoughtfulness is just astounding to me! I am always amazed at how blessed I am to know the ladies on this DT! You will NEVER meet a more caring, giving, amazing group of women.  Heather did a wonderful job bringing this group together and I will always be grateful to her.  Now, Rhonda, darling, a million thank yous!!! Your kindness could not have come at a better time, thank you not only for the gift but for reminding me that there are good people in this world! And you are one of the best, and believe me you will be blessed for your kindness! And by the way, I am one of the few (maybe only)  adults that I know that LOVES  McDonalds! How did you know?
I hope you don't mind that I am sharing this picture of your amazing cards!
Thank you for stopping by!

I love LOVE this card!!! The purple and black combo are perfect for her!!!

And Rhonda is one of the very sweetest gals around. I did not bring the group together... God did. I met you 'accidentally' and then we just wrote ever since... God just has a way with things.... a perfect wonderful way :)

Hugs and love to you my friend.

Very sweet card, Stacy! And you're right --that is a darling image!

Too funny about your unknown package in the mail...that happens to me sometimes, but sadly, the contents were 'gifted' to me. ;/ Maybe I should take a pledge like you did.... Gonna have to think about that one some more, though I am a LOT better at refraining than I used to be.

Your DT friend surely blessed you, your DD, and sweet li'l Gage. Thanks for sharing it all with us!

awhhh...Sweetie -you are just too kind with your words!! You are so welcome-I am happy that you enjoyed getting a little something you weren't expecting! And as for the coffee--I know you must love cofee--cuz after all you are on the Fresh Brewed DT!!! And we have no other big coffee places around here--so I figured you could at least use it at McDonalds to get a hot Yummy Latte, or Frappé!
