Some "Fresh Brewed" News!!!

Well happy Wednesday everyone...actually that was the title of my very first post...LOL!

A post two days in a row!!! 

Today I have some exciting news to share!! 

I've been asked to be on the Fresh Brewed Design team and today the LOVELY Heather will be announcing us nubbies!!!

Heather's designs are called "Fresh Brewed"...well because they are freshly brewed from Heather's creative mind!!!

I chose one from Fresh Brewed's Alice in Wonderland collection because they intrigued me...I was also POSITIVE that I had some Alice in Wonderland themed paper in my craft room.  Well after an exhaustive search that paper was nowhere to be found...did I image that I had it or was it sucked into the black hole of my ever expanding craft room...that is the mystery!!

Anyway I went to "Plan B" and used some GORGEOUS Graphic 45 paper from the "Once Upon a Springtime" collection...
I made it into a window style card using a Go Kreate die...
please click on the first image for a slideshow and closer view...
 this is Heather's "Drink Me" digi from her Alice in Wonderland collection...
 I decided to make this a tea party as I found this cute little tea pot charm in my stash...
the sentiment is computer generated...
 I added some ribbon, crown stick pins, pearls, flowers and of course...Frantage...
just a little...tee hee...

So that is my first "Fresh Brewed Design" DT card...I hope that you will hop on over to the Fresh Brewed Design Challenge blog and check out the work of my other new team mates!!!  I had so much FUN with this image!!

Materials Used:
DP-Graphic 45 Once Upon a Springtime 8"X8" paper pack
Die-Go Kreate XXL Frames Flower #1 #360020
Crown stick pins, pearls and flowers-Wild Orchid Crafts
Punches-Fern punch-Martha Stewart and Small Tag punch-Marvy
Charm and ribbon are from my stash

Until next time...your visits and comments are so very much appreciated!!!
