The BIG, Month Long, Fresh Brewed Challenge

I hope you all enjoyed the hop! What? You MISSED the hop? Well go back and start here at Rhonda's blog because you will NOT see the new images here today! You will HAVE to hit the hop to see what is Fresh Brewed TODAY!!! (the hop will be hyperlinked here to the direct posts all the way at the end of this post so that you can do the hop any time during the month for a chance to win!!!)
For those of you who did hop.. WOW right? The girls really went all out. I am still picking my jaw off the floor!

I have been talking for over a week now about a SURPRISE and FUN and MORE so... lets start this party off with a song!!! ((**I have never seen the Rocky Horror Pic Show, so this is only in ref to this ever so fun and cute song :) It put some pep in my morning ;) AND you are going to need it, this post is rather long.... lol!!!) Enjoy!

HAHAHA!!!! That's funny stuff, I don't care who ya are :D!!!

On to the surprise

This post was kept a secret from my design team for this very reason... the surprise is FOR THEM!!!
Meet the Fresh Brewed Design teamI, with the help of a few other wonderful people, have collected some amazing shop sponsors and a few prizes just to honor them and show them just how much they are appreciated. I do not think many of us understand how much our DT goes through to create inspiring cards FOR US. They take time out of their daily lives, loose sleep often and give their all because they are committed but most importantly want to share with us. I want to let my DT know that I absolutely LOVE them to pieces :) They are the best group of ladies I have ever met and am so blessed to have you all in my life.

Now, those of you reading this... do not feel left out just because you are not on my DT... these fabulous sponsors are not only offering up a prize for the DT, but the same prize for you as well!!! This post will remain here for the full month of August ((BECAUSE I AM HONORING MY DT NOT ONLY WITH PRIZES BUT THE MONTH OFF!!!)) That means you will have PLENTY of time to create and play along. What is the challenge you ask??? I will announce it after you browse through all the awesome prizes up for grabs!!!
Off you go!!!

Thank you again to all the sponsors!!! You MADE this day what it is and I am soo grateful!!!

OK ... are you wowed?!?! I can not tell you how thankful I am. Such a blessing you all are!!! and all that being said leads up to my challenge! I want you to choose a DT member, mother, father, sister, friend, service worker... anyone you want to THANK that does not get THANKED enough. There are so many people who do things for us on a day to day basis that probably do not get told thank you, I appreciate you ... and that one little thing just may make their day! So lets spread some smiles and share our gratitude with others.
When posting to the challenge, please add your direct link into the inlinkz below. IF you create with a Fresh Brewed image, you will be added twice ... and the more cards you make, the better your chances are to win! Spread the word!!! Play along and THANK YOU for your support and love. Fresh Brewed Designs would not be what it is not only with out the DT, but without you as well.

Oh, did you know that Fresh Brewed Designs turns 1 this month!!! There is another little challenge / surprise / fun thing going on over at CDAC to celebrate. Come join in on that too!!!
