We added 4 envelopes for the note cards

before tying the whole thing up with a red stitched ribbon.
She was so excited, I let her bring it home yesterday
before I could snap a picture of the packaged project!

FBD 3 Day Blog Hop and Blog Candy!

Hello and Welcome to the August Fresh Brewed Designs Three Day Blog Hop!  

If you are getting here from 

the very talented Celeste's blog 

then you are right on track.
If you are just finding your way to our  fun filled, extra caffeinated blog hop, then please start at the beginning here: Freshly Brewed Challenges. 

The Fresh Brewed Designs Team and Guests have put together another HOT blog hop for you that starts TODAY and lasts ALL THIS WEEKEND featuring handmade cards inspired by our new released Rubber Stamps. You may remember that these, just as a few others in our rubber collection, once started as digis. We were literally begged to put them into rubber.... so after a year of their hibernating, here they are! Back and better than ever - ready to be created with and to make you smile. 

For my card I chose to create with
Coffee Truck

I truly loved making this card!  It was so much fun to color this super fun and very unique stamp in!
I used the sketch from 
The Sweetest Thing
Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge

For the duration of the hop, you can get this stamp along with the very popular
"Hot Cuppa Joe" stamp and a fun set of eight 4x6 American Craft double sided papers 

(cut by Heather) for just $11

(A photo can be seen at the first hop stop). Drop on by the shop to snag your set before it is too late!!!

I have some purple blog candy for my

followers old and new!

Thank you so much for stopping by! 
You can continue on with your caffeine addiction by heading over to the very lovely Tracy's blog!

Warmest Hugs, Sheryl 

Here's a complete list of all the participating blogs in today's hop -
