Featured DT Member

Today is one of our beautiful DT members birthdays. 
This lady is so wonderful, talented and so super sweet. 
She has been with me here at FBD since the very beginning.

Here is a little FBD history. I started designing in  2009. I was just learning the tricks of the trade and getting used to drawing again. I opened a digi shop and just had fun with it. Around May 2010 I started the challenge blog and my first design team. By November 2010 I decided to try my hand at designing and selling rubber stamps.  I had a DT call. Only a handful entered (we were still small and not well known then) One of those amazing people was Linda. She has been through all of the hoops, ooopsies, WOWS, excitement, laughter and tears.  I am so grateful for her and really wanted to use this post to highlight a few of her first cards and to tell her
 Happy BIRTHDAY !!

 I love you girl!!  

Here's a cute card that Linda created as one of
{I thought it was quite fitting to share for her birthday today}

Here is one of Linda's DT application cards :))

and here is her VERY FIRST DT assignement cards. 
YES, she was still doing all of that gorgeous stitching and layering. 
I know I could personally go back to 2010, look at my cards and cringe! hahahah!!!

 I hope you have a wonderful day Linda

Big hugs from all of us at Fresh Brewed Designs!!!

  1. Awwww shucks, you've got me blushing here Heather. Thank you for the warm and wonderful birthday wishes as well as the trip down memory lane! Yes, I remember my DT application card. Funny thing is, I recently colored up that snowman again to use, knowing full well I had used him on that very card. Awww the memories! Thanks again my friend, I love you.


  2. Happy, Happy Birthday, Linda! What a very special birthday post! It's such a treat to see these cards! I cringe when I look at my cards from the past! Your's are just as beautiful today as they were then! I hope that you have a wonderful and blessed day with your family!
    Big Warm Hugs, Sheryl
