It's FINALLY here!

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 Sheryl.

If you are getting here from Vanessa's Blog 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: "Dressed Up Girl"

There is a long story to this card, but to those who were chatting at our
Fresh Brewed Group at the Crafter's Cafe
I caved in and made a new one... this is the amputee!
I used Digi Papers from JLJ Designs and finally pulled
my treasured craft pin (also from JLJ Designs) out of hiding!
I have been holding this pin for JUST the right card
and when I saw "Dressed Up Girl", it was time!

The silver ribbon is from the Swap Club at TCC
and I used it to make a rolled ribbon rose.
I dressed her up with just a little silver stickles
on the fringe of her dress and her shoes.

This is a VERY special card to me for a lot of reasons
and it's going to a VERY special friend!!
She's worth pulling out ALL my goodies!

I honestly think this is one of the prettiest cards I've ever made!
It all just came together so nicely... first time in awhile!

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 :)

Heather said...

I am laughing so hard about your amputee statement. lol. THIS is the card? I can't see where you cut off her leg at all, HAHAHA!!! or did you make another. I am confused. It is early, I am on cold meds and that is my excuse. I am rolling with it :D

Your card is STUNNING!!! This has to be one of my most favorite cards you have made. The purple is gorgeous and the flourishes add so much to the card. I LOVE the glittery accents.

I am sending you smiles today.
