FBD Month Long Prize Challenge - Anything Goes!


I hope that all of you enjoyed your holidays!
I enjoyed a wonderful Christmas!
It was so nice to spend some time with all of our loved ones
and count our many blessings.
I actually had to clean out my craft room before 
I could get in there 
to craft again!  
The holiday season was so very busy around here
and my room was filled with shipping boxes,
 wrapping paper, bows 
and anything else that needed to be tucked away!  

When I finally got in there, I had so much fun creating again!

Fresh Brewed Designs will now be
having one month long prize challenge.
(No more weekly challenges)
You will have the whole month to join in on the fun!
We will be sharing lots of fun and creative cards and projects
with all of you with special DT features on Wednesday's
and throughout the week!

This Month's Prize Challenge at

I decided to make a
Fresh Brewed Designs
rubber stamp

I followed the directions on the tutorial and then I adhered the
double pocket card to the front of  a
6" x 4 1/2" card so that I could add a journal section to the inside.

I made this for a sweet little girl who's younger brother comes to my
preschool.  She is so very sweet and thoughtful and 
she is always surprising me with
pretty pictures and cards that she makes special for me!
I wanted to surprise her with something special and she loves
Ice Skating.  
I couldn't think of a more perfect image for her than the

Fresh Brewed Designs   Cutie Pie Ice Skating rubber stamp
colored with copics 
I used liquid pearls for the fur trim on her coat and skates.
I used crystal effects and Martha Stewart sugar on the wings.
I cut Cutie Pie out and used Stampin Up labels die cut to place her on.
The fun design paper is my new echo park  (Life Is Good)
The paper pack came with the fun stickers that I used on the tags
and the inside of my card.
I made the tags with Sizzix  Tags, scallop combo #2 die
The lacy heart is a Cheery Lynn Designs die cut
The snowflakes, pearls and rinestones are from Recollections

You will find lots of talent and DT inspiration 
when you pop on 
over to 
We hope that you can join in on the fun!
