New Release-Blog Hop-It's Fresh Brewed Designs!

Heather at Fresh Brewed Designs is on a roll!  She has a new release that we are show casing in a special blog hop - just for you.  First, the boring stuff (rules, ugh!)
 We are doing things differently this month.
We are having a one (well 2) stop hop every day this week starting today and ending on Saturday, June 11.
On Saturday all of the images will be in the shop and there will be a special post for you to comment on. If you participate every day and follow the rules, you will have a chance to win all 4 digis that are being released!  You must comment on the blog and EACH  DT presenter, each day to be in the running for the prize on Saturday.
Each day, go to the FBD blog, check out what Heather has to say and then follow the link to the DT member who is doing the showcase for that day.  If you come to us in the middle of the week, no problems!  Just go to Tuesday's post and start there.  As long as all the comments are in by Saturday at midnight, you are still eligible for Heathers wonderful giveaway!

Now, for the fun stuff.  Did you see the wonderful card that Linda did yesterday.  Gave me the 'shivers'!  LOL
Who knew how cute a bunch of elephants could be?  Heather did!  She gave each of us a new digi (they will be in the store on Saturday) to work with.  Amazingly cute and talented elephants, just waiting to grace your cards, scrapbook layouts and 3D projects!  If you have checked out my blog, you know that I love, love, love the ocean.  Heather gave me the perfect image!
Isn't she adorable!  Her name is Babie Ellie Hula Dancer.  She looks like she is out for a fun day on the beach!  Just for a note, the ice cream cone and the palm tree are both rubber stamps for the FBD store
 (So many of these stamps work together!) 

Remember to go the to FBD blog tomorrow to check out the next step in our hop and see you all at the blog on Saturday to get in your final comment to become eligible to WIN!
