Fresh Brewed Designs Blog Hop



Happy Wednesday all and welcome to the Fresh Brewed Designs blog hop. If you would like to play along you can start from the beginning and find the full list at Heather's blog. If you have joined me from the fabulous Barb's blog then you are on the right track.

Heather is releasing some adorable images today in her Hanna Belle and Tommy line. What makes these so special is that her own children are the inspiration for the images. What a fabulous way to capture those memories don't you think? So in the making memories spirit, I took a picture of my 3 yo daughter coloring her image for today's hop. She has her own table, pencils, and a beverage to keep her energy up. Everyday when we get home from daycare she wants to put on her ballet leotard and skirt so I let her. She just looks too cute in it.

For my card I used Hannah Belle Artist. Isn't she adorable? I must admit that after I colored the art apron in cow print that I realized it was probably supposed to be paint splotches. LOL. I still think it turned out cute. I gave the card some SPICE by using some scraps from Sassafrass Lass and October Afternoon. I think the fun SL paper makes it look like she painted a whimisical wall. For my layout I used ICS #55.

Thank you for playing along in today's hop. I hope you have a wonderful day. Your next stop is the uber talented Carolyn.

How sweet, both of your cards, and of course your little girl. Someone was asking today what they could do with their grandkids that are spending the week with them and I said, Paint! I have three nieces and they love it. So I adore this card, it reminds me so much of them.
