It's the first Wednesday of the month, and you know what that means for Fresh Brewed Designs ... another blog hop and image release. The HOP starts with Rhonda, so be sure to go there first! If you are hopping and got here from Amanda 's blog, then you are good to go!
This hop will not be your ordinary hop... it is full of secrets and smiles, wonder and amazement. Magical things happen when you get a group of ladies together. What kind of magic you ask? The only magic worth seeking, wanting, cherishing... the kind of magic you find in true friendship. Today we have a little bit of magical enchantment to share with you in these newest Fresh Brewed Designs images. Each tells a little story, a little mystery, a little fun, and adds just a little bit of fantasy to each creation you will see during this hop.
As children we remember those Fairy Tales about mermaids and magical worlds where fairies live. We would lay in the grass and wonder if the patch of wildflowers was full of life, if mermaids swam in the sea beneath us. It is always fun to imagine and dream.
"Some day you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again” ---- CS Lewis
For my card I used Tiana with the lovely Lilies of the Valley on her wings. I remember finding these delicate flowers in both of my grandmothers' gardens. The way they bloom in clusters, facing downward like little bells, they must produce sweet music heard only by the fairies of the gardens.
I colored Tiana with Copics and made the card with a purple and green color scheme. The background paper is from the Basic Grey Wisteria collection. The green and lavender trim papers are punched with three of the Martha Stewart border punches: wrought iron, pansies, and branches. The Lilies of the Valley are silk picks from Hobby Lobby wedding department and the ribbon from my stash.
Thank you so much for hopping, fluttering, or splashing by today. Please continue your journey by stopping by Jenn 's blog to see her beautiful creation. There is more magic and fun to come. Be sure to complete the hop in full, you will not want to miss the surprise at the end!!!
