FBD Blog Hopping (with candy)

The BIG MOMENT has arrived...
the one we have ALL BEEN WAITING for...
Fresh Brewed Designs FIRST Rubber Stamp Release for 2012!
And we are celebrating with a three day hop, so you will have until February 27th to get in on the fun!
If you are getting here from Stacy's blog, then you are right on track.
If not you will need to go back to the start of our hop at the blog of our very own Fresh Brewed Designs artist and designer, Heather.
She also has a lot of fun and useful information for you that you will NOT want to miss! So be sure to go back and start there.
We have been so excited about sharing these new stamps with you!
I chose to create with BOTH of our new stamps for my project!
First I used 'Crafty Girl' to may a birthday card for my best 'crafty' friend!
Happy Birthday Danna!

Inside I used this wonderful sentiment from Yolanda over at Just Yolie.  What a great way to say Happy Birthday to a friend who has the same paper addiction that I do!  LOL

Next I got out 'Work out Girl'.  Now, she is one tough chica! 

Her outfit is paper pieced with scraps.  Love to use those scraps!

Check out that flower DP.  If you buy both stamps, you will get some of this cardstock to play with!

One lucky person will win this rubber stamp!  (and a few little add-ons)
Cutie Pie Mermaid

This is one of the stamps from a Fresh Brewed Designs summer release.  I figure that since I am praying for warm weather and summer days, why not stamp for summer too!  LOL

To win this stamp. (I will mail anywhere the winner lives) is really easy.
Leave a comment here on this posting.
Follow this blog (but only if you want to!  LOL)
Have fun visiting all the blogs in our hop!  :)
I will pick a random winner on Tuesday.  Good Luck!
Heather is having a special deal on the NEW stamps and other goodies for this release.
You can get this special package for $20. That is a savings of $10!!!
You can only get this package for this price during the hop { last day is Feb. 27th}
Find out more about this deal in the shop HERE
It is now time for you to hop on over to the next hop stop at Yolanda's blog.
I am sure you are very eager and excited to see what she has created!
Thank you so much for stopping by today.
Have a very HAPPY day!
