November Rubber Stamp Release / Blog Hop

Good Morning!
Welcome to Fresh Brewed Designs LAST rubber stamp release and blog hop for 2012!
We are so excited to have you sharing in this fun event with us!
If you are just arriving here, this IS the first hop stop, so you are right on track!  

There is just something about this time of year that makes me happy. 
All of the worries and stresses seem to fade away as we spend time with those we love.
We get to bake and fill our homes with wonderful smells, make lasting memories, share love and smiles with others, some of whom we may never even meet. It is a very loving and selfless time of year. This release reflects some of those things. Hannah Belle Cooks brings in the joy of baking, cooking, sharing times with our kids, laughing, making messes, and lots of smiling. Our Love Bird Owls draw us closer together. Keeping warm together on a cool night. Sharing our hearts with those around us.

Today's project is not mine! I am so excited to be able to feature this wonderful card as our FIRST HOP STOP CARD! Barbara is a member of Splitcoast Stampers and makes absolutely gorgeous cards. I was thrilled to have her a part of this hop with us! Here is her card using the Love Bird Owls: 

Thank you for stopping by today!
Your next hop stop is the lovely and talented VANESSA. 

Don't forget to hop in full to see all of the fabulous cards and to have a chance to win
some yummy Blog Candy!!! 

See you in 2013!

Here is the hop order in case you need it:

  13. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these owls! So cute! Barbara, your design is adorable! The bench, the tree, the clouds in the sky, the cute little tag. My favorite part is the little hearts coming up around the owls head. Do you know that little hearts actually appear around my head every time I see my husband?

  14. oh my word...what a darling card! i love all the bling and embellishments! Thanks so much for sharing

    1. What fun i've had hopping along today. Thanks for having such a great team...your guest's blog is now being followed by me, as well as all of your team.

  15. I'm so confused (and also feel a little sily....) as I've never done a blog hop before and I'm not entirely sure what I should be doing :(

    1. Vicky, you'll be "hopping" from blog to blog checking out everyone's creations and leaving comments (to be eligible for prizes). Near the end of each post, you will be directed to whose blog you go to next. There are nine blogs all together in this weekend's blog hop, so be sure and hit each one. Hope that answered your question.


    2. Ah okay. I think I'm too late to join in now aren't I? As I've missed yesterdays? x

  16. This is one sweet card Barbara!!! Love the die cut tree!! Perfect image for a Valentine's Day card. Congrats on being featured on our hop!!!


  17. Such a sweet card!! Owls are such a cute & fun image to color and use on cards!!

  18. Those owls are darling! And such a nice thing to see a Valentine's Day card at this time of year. I love making V-Day cards! Off to the next stop...
