Smile, New Rubber Released Today!!

SURPRISE!!! My post is now up!!! I don't know what happened!
Turn up the music, put on your party hat and get ready to boogie!!!
Not only is it time for our FRESH BREWED DESIGNS RUBBER RELEASE HOP this weekend; it is Heather's Birthday Weekend as well!
She is so sneaky ... I think she planned this all along... and didn't tell us until the last minute. 
If you are just arriving to the party,  please go back to the start at Freshly Brewed Challenges.
If you got here from Heather's blog, then you are READY TO PARTY!!! 

Since it IS a surprise party, of course we HAVE TO HAVE PRESENTS!!!
Heather is giving away birthday blog candy HERE, BUT THAT'S NOT ALL!!!
You have a chance to win more SURPRISE BLOG CANDY just by hopping. 
All you have to do is hop in full and leave a comment on our CHALLENGE BLOG letting us know the most
favorite gift you have ever received and why it was so special to you. 
For my birthday, I love two things...getting dinner to go and time to do whatever I want to do, with no interruptions from hubby or kids. Absolute me time! As Moms we never get enough of it, so that's what I always ask for on my birthday!

Our theme for this rubber release is all about gifts and giving. We are not necessarily talking about actual physical gifts.
We feel that the most important gift you can give anyone is your time, love, friendship and understanding.
That is what we try to focus on at Fresh Brewed Designs. We are a 'team' of friends who love to share
our gifts with you and make you smile. That is our goal, always.
So our gift to you today is to thank you for your support and for taking time to stop in and share your smile with us. 
We truly appreciate you and are so happy to have you here to celebrate with us.
And it looks like this girl with a gift is ready to celebrate someone's happy moment! She is one of the new rubber stamps being released today and you can find it HERE!  Isn't she beautiful, even from behind.

Keep on Partying!!! WOOT WOOT!!!
It is time to move on to the next hop stop.
You are going to want to continue partying by hopping on over to Vanessa's blog and see what she has prepared for you today. I know you are going to love it!!!

Here is the hop order just in case you are having too much fun and get lost along the way :))

Linda -- you are here

She reminds me of myself. I love to surprise people with gifts! Try to hide them & then pull them out. :)
