Happy Fall Y'all

The only SAD thing about this weekend is that it is 
Crystals last weekend with us as our Guest Designer :(
Crystal, you have been just amazing! I have enjoyed your being our guest and getting to know you more than you could imagine. You are talented and beautiful (inside and out) and I just wanted to let you know. *oh, and  did I mention she is just as sweet as candy?!?!* 

If you hopped with our Save the Hooters hop, then you saw this card, but probably did not get a GOOD look at it... so here it is again!
Spicy Pumpkin Latte Rubber Stamp

 Don't you just LOVE these fall colors in Spicy Pumpkin Latte! I love the beautiful papers and the ribbon treatment. Gorgeous! Check out Crystals post with this card HERE at scrapcandydesigns and leave her some love :D

as you know over the weeks we have been collecting a little bit of information about Crystal. She so graciously answered my quirky questions and I have smiled reading her answers. I hope you have too and I hope you have gotten to know her a little better. 

Here are her last two Q&A's

10-If you were deserted on an island with nothing but stamping supplies, which of your supplies do you have enough of to make yourself an outfit with? ((Would you wear a button ball gown? LOL))
It would totally be paper! And if I could have ribbon too, that would also work! But seriously, have you seen some of the paper dress creations on sites like Etsy & Pinterest? Oh my goodness, they are phenomenal! Besides, if I'm stranded on the beach I can totally make a wicked dress cause I'll have so much time on my hands, and until it gets done I can always wear palm leaves & coconuts...hehehe!!

11- Did you enjoy being FBD's guest designer for September? :)
11. I have absolutely LOVED being an FBD Guest Designer this month!! It has been so much fun! Heather, you are absolutely one of the nicest people in blog land that I've ever met & you have the sweetest DT that have left me the loveliest comments. You are so generous with your product & your stamps are so much fun to play with too. This has been one of my favorite guest spots ever!!

(and here are the rest in case you missed them)

1.How did you find out about Fresh Brewed Designs?   
I was browsing challenge blogs & looking for something new, as well as fun, when I stumbled upon FBD. Since then, I've been hooked to all the fun challenges, great inspiration & sweet atmosphere!

2. Do you like coffee? (had to ask;) lol!!!)
  I do love coffee! I love it extra sweet with lots of creamer, especially flavored creamers like hazelnut! Mmmmm!

3. What is your favorite flavor - style of coffee beverage (if you do;) lol!) 
  Hands down, iced coffees! Just adore yummy! But, I also really love me a good cappuccino - especially in the winter months!

4-How long have you been stamping?
I've only been stamping a couple years...maybe three. I got into scrapbooking first and it kind of evolved from there. I was so terrified of cards at first but over the years, they've become much easier!
5-What is your favorite coloring medium?
 I love using Prisma pencils, but since my arthritis is getting worse, I find I can't use them as much. So, I am discovering the wonderful world of markers! So far I really like the Prisma markers & am using them lately.
6-What are five craft items you can’t live without?
 Oh this is a hard one...really hard! I'm also kind of a practical gal so some of these may seem kind of obvious. :0) I am definitely a hoarder of many things so its hard to narrow it down, but here goes nothing! I would have to say paper cutter/scissors, my beloved paper stash, punches, Tim Holtz distress ink in walnut stain, and my Glue Glider Pro!
7-If you had to choose, what is your favorite FBD Stamp or Image?
Oh my gosh, I have so many fave FBD stamps cause they are all so wonderful! I really love how deeply etched they are & so easy to get a good impression. Right now, I am really in love with "Hello," the new cutie patootie telephone stamp you released, but I also love Pumpkin Spice Latte & Candy Corn Girl!
8-Any tips or techniques you can give fellow stampers
I'm not sure...I'm not the best tipster or technique gal. At least I don't think so! LOL!  
 9-What is your favorite color combination?
Again, I've so many faves!! It is very hard to choose just one, but I do love turquoise/reds, orange/pinks, & pinks/greens. And of course the fab purple/orange/black/green color combo of Halloween, which is my family's favorite holiday! ;0)
I hope you all have a super duper weekend.. 
oh.. and
