Sending Christmas wishes Across The Miles

Hello and Happy Wednesday!
We have a brand new Challenge at

Across The Miles

I used Fresh Brewed Designs
Have a Tweet Christmas digi
to make a Christmas card!

I am so very far behind on Christmas cards!
I love this adorable snowman digi and I plan on 
making lots of cards with him!
I thought this sentiment was cute
for those family members who live far away.
Though I'm not sure that anyone would
truly appreciate a Blizzard!  LOL!

Fresh Brewed Designs, "Have a Tweet Christmas" digi
colored with copics.
I used liquid pearl on both the snowman and birds
 hats and glossy accents on the
Christmas ornaments.
I added Martha Stewart sugar for the snowmans body and snow.
Stampin Up cardstock and ribbon
Lace from my stash
Recollections Sugar Plums DP
Stampin Up snowflake embossing folder
Tim Holtz snowflake die
snowflake punch
Stampin Up large oval punch and scallop oval punch

I hope that you can join in on our fun challenge!
Pop on over to Freshly Brewed Challenges
to see some fun inspiration by my
very creative DT Friends!

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges
Divas by Design  Glitter and Sparkle
Crafty Sentiments   Red, White and Green
Ladybug Crafts   Snowflakes

FBD November Blog Hop and Blog Candy! Come Hop With Us!

Good Morning!
Welcome to Fresh Brewed Designs LAST rubber stamp release and blog hop for 2012!
We are so excited to have you sharing in this fun event with us!
If you are just arriving here, please go to the start of the hop at Freshly Brewed Challenges.
If you are coming from Yolanda's blog, then you are right on track!

There is just something about this time of year that makes me happy.
All of the worries and stresses seem to fade away as we spend time with those we love.
We get to bake and fill our homes with wonderful smells, make lasting memories, share
love and smiles with others, some of whom we may never even meet. It is a very loving and
selfless time of year. This release reflects some of those things. Hannah Belle brings in the
joy of baking, cooking, sharing times with our kids, laughing, making messes, and lots of smiling.
Our Love Bird Owls draw us closer together. Keeping warm together on a cool night.
Sharing our hearts with those around us.

For my project I chose to make a Christmas card using
Hannah Belle Cooks

I love this stamp!  
She is the perfect all occasion stamp!
Birthday's, Holidays and Just Because Cards!
I love how she is sticking her little tongue out while
she stirs the batter!  He he he!
The adorable candy cane charm and pretty holiday twine
that I used
are just a couple of treats you will find in the 
Blog Hop Candy prize!

For the duration of this hop ONLY, you can get both cling mounted stamps for just $10.50!!!

I am offering some candy for my followers old and new too!
I'm sorry that my picture quality is so poor!
I am trying to photograph on Friday night!
I'm not sure if you can tell, but the Recollections
flourish is made with rinestones and pearls.
Very pretty with the snowflakes.
The Prima flowers have pretty sequins on them too!

Thank you for stopping by today!
Your next hop stop is the lovely and talented Sarah.

Don't forget to hop in full to see all of the fabulous cards and to have a chance to win

Its time for a new month long prize challenge at
