It's a *Sweet Blog Hop!*

Welcome to the Fresh Brewed Designs
New Digi Blog Hop for July!!!

I'm the very beginning of the Blog Hop- if you just landed here, lucky you!

What is this hop all about you ask???
Sweet Talking!!!

Rich, creamy, chocolaty, fruity, thick, airy, light, sweet and delicious! Desert. Something we all LOVE and crave. Summer time is the perfect time to try new ice cream flavors, add fresh fruits to our favorite cakes, pies and cold drinks. You know what I am talking about... and I know your mouth is watering already :)

Fresh Brewed Designs has their own special recipe for SWEET things and added a few new ingredients to their already darling Angel Cakes for this image release. Angel Cake loves summer and ice cream and hanging out with her new best friend Huckleberry Pie.

Along this hop you will see Angel, Huck, and some too sweet for words images that have been added to the Fresh Brewed Designs shop.

For my card, I used GumBall Angel Cakes - isn't she adorable!  I just loved her and went with a bright bouquet of colors, pulling from the variety of gumballs
and adding matching papers from Echo Park, rainbow ric-rac and rainbow glittery brads!  I just love using color and a bright, fun card = a Happy Card! 
Her wings have a dusting of fairy dust glitter on them, although hard to tell
from the pic.

Want a chance to win this image plus more? You will want to hop in full leaving comments on ALL of the blogs in the hop. **There is ONE special secret hop stop that is giving away 5 digis of choice.**

** IF you made it this far, thank you! Esp for the good thoughts for my son.   We are now home!  VERY long weekend, but what fun!  My son felt HORRIBLE at the tournament, and his earache got even worse.  I was torn on even letting him enter this tourney in the first place but some very trusted friends assured us it was safe and tame, lol.  And it was.  I felt silly worrying in the first place - but I'm the mom.  That's my job :)  He competed and medaled and it was all very sweet - at this age!  As he gets older, it's far from cute and by then, I hope we moved on to something like ........ chess :)

And I'm mommy to 6 for the next 2 weeks!  We picked up my niece (13) and nephew (10) while in North Florida and we are LOVING it!
They are such great kids and we are so thrilled to have them!
More to come! x0x0
