August Guest Designer

Please give a WARM WELCOME to our August Guest Designer
Vanessa at My Paper Creations
Here is a little write up about her so you can get to know her better :)

Hi!  I am Vanessa Buzard (that's pronounced boozard- rhymes with yard) ;)  I am married and a SAHM to one son who is 6.5 and a fur son, a boxer, who is 8.  We live in beautiful San Diego, CA.  I am very excited and honored to be the guest DT for August here at Fresh Brewed Designs.  I love all the fun designs and I am also a lover of all things coffee. I really enjoyed playing with the digis and rubber stamps at FBD.  Thank you, Heather, for this opportunity. :) I have been stamping/making cards for many, many years now and scrapbooking since my ds was born.  I also just recently signed up with A Muse Studio (; a new, fun adventure for me.  I'm currently my best customer, but I love their stamps and products.  :)

Vanessa has wowed us with MANY FBD creations over the past months. She has combined her AMuse stamps with Fresh Brewed rubber or digis and created unique and beautiful works of art. The ones she has created for her guest designer term are no different! She has made us OOOh and AHH over each creation. Now it is your turn;) Check out this AWESOME card she created using 

This card also fits in with the theme of our Month Long Prize challenge: HOT!!!
she used REAL COFFEE BEANS!!! Can you imagine how 
AMAZING this card smells. The coffee beans stamps are by 
AMuse ... perfect with Coffee Take Me Away 
(or any of our Latte loving FBD ladies ;)
I do hope you will stop by her blog and leave her some love. While there, browse her site for all of the OTHER fantastic fbd creations she has made and check out her shop! You will be glad you did!!! So many work well with the other stamps you have, as she so beautifully has shown us in her work. 

Thank you   Vanessa for being our lovely guest this month. 

You are not only a breath of fresh air, you are one who makes me laugh, smile, cry and are a beautiful person. I am so glad to have met you through FBD. Another example of  how God works through all things! :)
