BLOG HOP New Releases at FRESH BREWED DESIGNS

Blog Hop
New Releases at Fresh Brewed Designs

Hi my wonderful Followers!

Welcome to Fresh Brewed Designs April Blog Hop and New Digi Release!
Your first hop stop is at  Freshly Brewed Challenges.
If you have already visited and are arriving
here from MARJI's blog, then you are right on track!



We are so happy to have you visiting with us today.

We have been waiting for this hop, and season change, for some time now!
Birds are singing, kids are riding bikes around the neighborhood, pollen has covered everything, 
bees are busy buzzing around newly bloomed flowers  ... SPRING IS HERE! 


I have created this centre step card with one of the adorable new images from the Category called Daffodil and Daisy which is one of the new releases.  The image has been coloured with H2O water colour pencils.  The design papers and buttons are from my stash.  The sentiment is from CREATE WITH TLC. Please don't laugh at my amateurish attempt at chalking clouds.  This was my first time, so I guess practice makes perfect.


Check this out!
You can purchase these digis as a set for a special
NEW RELEASE PRICE!
This deal, and the hop,  ends on April 16th at 11:59 PM
Stop by the shop and get yours today! 

 
  
Thank you so much for hopping with us today.
It is time for you to hop on over to my fellow DT member and friend
PATTI's blog to see what she has prepared for you.

HOW BEAUTIFUL ARE THOSE CLOUDS! Makes me want to go outside and start digging... but the sun hasn't even peeped out yet, so I had better wait a while.
