Fresh Brewed Designs September Blog Hop --- Shades of Brown and New Releases

Good Morning! **YAWN STRETCH** Can you believe our month off has gone by already and we are well into September? School is already started for most of the little ones. Moms are all busy and getting up early, always on the go. We know how you are feeling. TRUST US! We know! This blog hop / image release was created with you in mind.

Ready for a hint? Here is a little poem for you:

Coffee and spice, Lattes are nice
That's what this girl's made of!


You guessed it, we have some fun coffee images to share with you. LOTS of caffeinated fun... just the boost you need for the mid-week slump. You will find some relaxing images, some sassy "woohoo the kids are gone" (lol) images... but most of all you will find these images are perfect images for someone you love. They are centered around love and romance with a dash of sass. Intrigued?

Wait no longer, here is the card I created using two of the new images:

I used some paper piecing and Copics coloring for each image.  Coloring the coffee and chocolate candies late at night had me craving both!  I settled for Yoplait Chocolate Whip yogurt...... yum! 

I love this image and both "cups" have coffee in them.  But when I use this image for a lovey-dovey card for my honey I will have to put hot chocolate in his cup.  Can you believe he doesn't like coffee??!!!  Well, I love him anyway and he does grant my every coffee-whim, including driving into town to get me a Starbuck's -- extra hot so I don't have to microwave it when he gets home.

These chocolate bon-bons are the best accompianment for coffee, don't you think?  Hmm, caramel filled, nougat, chocolate creme... or my favorite chocolate covered cherries!  What a time to have only M&M Pretzels in the house!

Now, on to the hop!  Be sure to complete the hop in full! The DT has created some lovely cards you will not want to miss! AND one lucky winner will receive two free images of choice just for hopping!

Start with our fearless leader and creator of these high octane caffeinated images.........
