What's Brewing? Why a Fresh Brewed Designs Blog Hop, That's What!

Welcome to Fresh Brewed Designs May Rubber Stamp Release and Blog Hop! 
We are so happy to have you hopping along with us today!

If you are just arriving to the hop, you will want to go back to the start
If you are getting here from Yolanda's blog then you are good to go!

One major thing has changed in our hops.
We will no longer be having a 3 day, hop filled weekend.
We are shortening it to a ONE DAY HOP!!!
That's right!
If you want to hop, today is THE day!
This hop will close on Tuesday the 21st at 8 AM EST.
 We were all patient and didn't spill the beans about this release,
but hopefully you got the hint!
this release is for you!
I am so happy to  introduce to you the newest addition to the FBD rubbah stamp family:
Skinny Minnie Coffee Break
with Sentiments Stamp Set
Here is my card using Skinny Minnie Coffee Break with the What's Brewing sentiment. It was a late night last night, trying to work on my card AND watch the hockey game. I'm a big Pittsburgh Penguins fan and the game went into double overtime!! Unfortunately we lost but the series is still going on with the Pens leading 2 games to 1. Oh, you want to hear more about my card...silly me!! Minnie is stamped onto vanilla cardstock and colored with Copic markers. I had a pad of Basic Grey paper on my desk so I pulled some paper from it. Keeping it simple, a must when you've been watching hockey for over 4 hours!! 
Thank you so much for hopping with us!
I hope you have enjoyed your time here at my blog. 
It is time for us to say goodbye and for you to head over to my friend
Heather's blog to check out what fabulous creation she has prepared for you.

Here is the full hop order :

AWESOME!!! Love the colors on this! She looks so classy. Love the papers and your fun layout. Sounds like you have had fun creating and watching the game. I am NOT good at doing that (watching something I enjoy on TV and creating). I would have never gotten anything made! LOL!!!
Sending smiles :)

The layout might be simple but I for one really like it. Love that embossing on the bg and that big bold flower too. Almost last stop on the hop but certainly not least in yumminess. Great job Linda.
As long as you don't start throwing your crafting supplies at the tv during the next game, you should be fine.
