A Frosty Hello

Shouting out a big HELLO!! It's Linda here from cold and snowy Pittsburgh, PA, sharing a card I created using the totally adorable Snowman Cupcake. Mmmmmmm, how yummy that would be, a chocolate cupcake piled high with frosting...almost too cute to eat (notice I said almost!!!). I used my Copic markers on this fellow, creating the plaid with my colorless blender. I was able to use up some paper scraps too for this one, always a plus in my book. And the sentiment is also from Fresh Brewed Designs, you can find it HERE.

Don't forget, we have a new challenge going on, Give Thanks. I could almost use this card as a Christmas thank you! Wow, could I actually be ahead of the game?!! That would be a first!!! Haha!

November Challenge #2 - GIVE THANKS

Are you ready for a new challenge?
Lets announce our NOV CHALLENGE #1 Winner first:


email me at freshbreweddesigns {at} yahoo [dot] com with your 
choice of 3 digital images!


It's that time of year again.
The time of year where we begin to reflect on all of the things that have happened
in our lives. We think about the ones we love and those who love us.
We take more time to think about how God has blessed us and what we can do
to thank Him and bless others in return. 
I know that money is something many of us do not have. 
I know that there are many things I would like to do for my family and friends, 
but can't because we don't have the money to do so....
but in reality, what others want more than THINGS, is love. 
Your time. A phone call. A card in the mail. A hug. A moment.
Something real. I encourage you to do more of that this year. 

Now that we are all sentimental, lets get on to the new challenge!

Our new challenge is 

 Must be noticeably Thanksgiving themed or have a sentiment
that says something about giving thanks.

Challenge Reminder - DT Feature

Good Morning!
I am sorry I am late adding this challenge reminder post.
We have been out of town visiting with my grandmother and
this is the first time I have been home in 3 days... 
We don't use computers when we are away. 
We sat on the porch, raked leaves, laughed, ate good, 
shared and all of that good stuff. It was such a nice time. 

Anyway -
I unpacked a little and then I couldn't wait any longer.
I had to share our Design Team members wonderful 
creations with you!!!

Check them out!
