My FBD September Blog Hop Card

Welcome to September's Fresh Brewed Designs Blog Hop!

This is Fresh Brewed Design's Biggest Blog Hop of the year. They have invited several guests to join in on the fun, and I get to be one of them (actually, I invited myself- LOL)!

If you are just arriving here, then you need to start at the beginning and go to the Freshly Brewed Challenge Blog. If you are getting here from Marji's blog then you are right on track!

The Hop this month includes ANY AND ALL previously released FBD rubber stamps! You will see a variety of stamps from 2010 - 2012 all done up pretty from many talented crafters.

The card I created for you features the FBD Rubber Stamp Baby Bump.


I used papers from my scrap bin so I am not sure who made them but my card base is SU! and I am pretty sure the dp on the flower is some retired dp from SU! It is double sided and I love how it looks on my crumpled flower - sponging the underside of the scallops would give the same look. I colored my image with Copics and paper pieced the dress with a bit of my scrap dp. I love how this came out - I plan to make some different versions of it in the future.

Stop by the Fresh Brewed Designs Shop to check out the GREAT DEALS
being offered for this hop and be sure to comment on all of the stops for your chance to win the blog hop prize package!

I am giving away some extra surprise blog candy to one lucky commenter on this post as well. To win my blog candy, you need to make a comment on my post and be one of my followers (be sure to join if you aren't one already).

Thank you for stopping by!

Your NEXT stop is at Ester's Blog.

I am also entering this card in the Simply Create Linky Party#2 and the Pile It On Challenge #37-Patterned Paper.


Hugz to all!

Brotherhood Wishes, a Paper Purse, and a Special Mug

Hello friends. No more fun travel or parade pictures - back to every day normal life.  On a positive note, I have been able to fit in some art. Hereis an art journal spread I finished this weekend. I am adding it to Alison's Summer Landscape challenge theme at **Art*Journal*Journey* .   I started the pages in my journal around July 4th after seeing Dina's stripes inspired Mixed Media challenge on Splitcoaststampers.com and got as far as stamping some foliage at the bottom.  I was stuck after that, and I wasn't sure where to go with it next.  A few days later, I was clearing out some things in the craft room and ran across a Thomas Kinkade book I cut up and use in my Bible Journaling.  There was a picture of  the San Francisco Bridge and another of some mountains so I tore them out and added them to my page with Gesso representing some of the beautiful things in America and also Alison's countryside theme.  They did not blend in very well and I needed to alter them to wo

My Favorite Parade

Hello Friends! Hope you had a good weekend.  I look forward to this weekend every year because I love the Fourth of July Parade in Prattville.  It makes me feel like things are right with the world - it is a bit old fashioned, a bit innocent, a bit quirky (actually a whole lot quirky), and a lot of fun.  Anyone can be in the parade as long as you remotely look patriotic.  My kids used to ride their bikes in the parade when they were younger. I thought I would share a few pictures. The mayor and City Council had one of the first floats (by the way all the floats and cars throw candy, necklaces, and toys so the people watching are all paying close attention so they can catch the good stuff). Notice how the floats are really just trailers with a few decorations. This was one of my favorites - it was the sanitation department and they had all their candy in a toilet on the top of the truck - lol!  I am pretty sure it was tootsie rolls - lol again! The local judge - isn't she pretty?  

Hot Air Balloons, Santa Fe, and Watermelon

Hello friends. Posting Day Three from our New Mexico Trip.   When  I was 26, I was on a hot air baloon team.  Our lead pilot back then was awesome and was asked to do a lot of commercial flights and invitationals. My favorite experience was at an invitational in Telluride, Colorado.  Flying down the middle of that city was amazing, but flying around Albuquerque was always wonderful as well.  Anyway, I wanted my daughter to experience the special feeling of being in a hot air balloon in Albuquerque (the balloon capital of the world).  Her son was a bit afraid so he stayed with me. Allie was lucky to have the owner of Rainbow Ryders as her pilot and she met a wonderful woman who is an established travel blogger (I will try to get her contact info and share it because she was very interesting and I bet her blog is interesting too).  They hit it off really well, and she was so encouraging to Allie who wants to get into Social Media Marketing.  For the travel blog video they got to go insid
