* Fresh Brewed Designs Release & Blog Hop! *

Good Morning! I hope you are all comfy and ready to HOP with some coffee in hand! If you know the super sweet and talented Heather from Fresh Brewed Designs, then you will be excited to see the new releases out today - they are just terrific! If this is your first visit, then you are in for a real treat! Stop by here and take a peek - adorable digi stamps is truly an understatement :) You should have arrived here from Terri's blog and if not, make sure to start at the beginning here!

Today's line-up are two new releases .... First up is Guitar Girl. Now, today is my daughter's 15th birthday (I seem to post on my blog on birthdays, lol!) and instantly I was drawn to this lovely digi stamp ..... she is like the #1 fan of the uber fantabulous Taylor Swift and she came to mind when I saw it ...... and then I started singing Taylor's song "Fifteen" ..... and here we are! LOL! Behold, a card for my daughter which she absolutely LOVED :) (see, your shopping will be rewarded! Tee hee!) I added the sentiment inside (from an SU! set) and took a photo before writing her a special message :) I wanted to use this paper specifically (thank you, Catherine!) because it had that youthful, somewhat whimsical look to it and designed a layout to showcase the image (and *15!*)

Next up is Coffee Talk which I just adore ...... this image is so much fun and versatile for the friends you meet at the coffee shop, for tucking away a gift card {like, S'Bucks :)} or sending a card to say *I'm thinking of you* :) I paired it with some dsp from MFT, added some flowers and ribbon and a string of rows of tiny pearls.

Make sure to stop by the terrificly talented Carmen! You won't be disappointed!
Thanks for stopping into today and enjoy the hop and then head on over to Fresh Brewed Designs for some wonderful images!
