Freshly Brewed Blog Hop and Stamp Release

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 
Welcome to the Fresh Brewed Designs 
If you are just getting here, please go back to the beginning with  the beautiful, talented and super terrific woman
If you are getting here from there then you are right where you need to be! 

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, make special holiday memories, and us crafters have so many amazing holidays to create for!  
This hop has something for every one of these things listed. We are celebrating holidays, friendships, and so much more!

I chose to share this image with you.
It is called: Hello Telephone

I didn't color at all on this card! Shocker! I just embossed
the stamp in white on black card-stock and called it good!
I know my birds are flying sideways...opps, but I didn't have
enough paper to cut another piece.  This is one
of those cards that didn't turn out at all the
way I planned! But here it is anyway....
All of these stamps are created using deeply etched red rubber mounted on an 1/8" cling foam cushion meaning you get a clear impression every time you stamp. Each stamp is produced and packaged in the USA.

By hopping IN FULL today one lucky winner will receive this
AWESOME prize package. If you share this hop on your blog and link it back to us, you will get your name in the hat one extra time :)

OK, 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 the lovely and talented
 blog and see what awesome project she has to share with you,
but before you do, please read this little extra bit of news below...
We want to share some more hoppy news with you before you continue on.
Fresh Brewed Designs is having 
ANOTHER blog hop
 this month. This hop will be to support and raise 
Breast Cancer Awareness
We will have new digis, a new rubber stamp SET and MUCH more planned for this day, so please grab the badge and spread the word.

Sideways birds or not, this card is fantastic. I have to admit that I just considered doing a white on black card with no coloring....gasp!
You pulled this together beautifully and those little blooms look great!
