And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God,
to them who are the called according to his purpose. . Romans 8:28


For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout,
with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God:
and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air:
and so shall we ever be with the Lord. 1 Thessalonians 4:16,17 / KJV
Jesus is our soon coming King
James 5:8 Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh."

Introducing Hannah Belle

Today I am so excited to share with you the newest addition to my shop, Fresh Brewed Designs, sweet little Hannah Belle. Through the hop you will see several different Hannah Belle's. They are all drawn freehand, all a bit different from the next and all have a personality their own, but they are all created after my own daughter, Hannah.

She inspires me to do many things. She is an amazing little girl. This past Sunday she gave her heart and life to Jesus Christ and accepted him as her Lord and Savior. I was also saved around her age. It was so wonderful and special. I was balling and so proud.

Anyway, back to the reason for the post :) ... the hop!!! The hop starts with the wonderfully sweet and talented RHONDA. If you did not start with her, then GO BACK!!! If you have already been hopping and arrived here from KADIE's GORGEOUS blog, then you are right on track!!!

Just in case you need to check and see if you completed the hop,
here is the full hop list:

This is not part of the hop and you are not required to go to win, but if you want to see a BEAUTIFUL card using Hannah Belle Birthday, head on over to Mary's blog, A Latte Inkin' Fun (my kind of blog title!! ;) and leave her some love.

First, I will share with
Hannah Belle Warm and Cozy

Challenges: Crazy 4 Challenges: sketch

She is colored with skin copics and prismacolor markers. The patterned papers are by American Crafts. The card stock is by Bazzil. I paper pieced her coat and hat with the same Bazzil paper. The sentiment is from a clear stamp set out of the michael's $ bin. I cut it out with my Nestie scalloped oval set.

Today I have a few goodies to throw your way. Lets talk about how you can win!!!!
1.)Leaving a comment on each blog will give you the chance to win the Grand Prize of 3 images of your choice.

2.) I will also have a runner up that will receive 2 images of their choice.

3.) Each blog hop stop will be awarding one lucky winner with one free image of their choice.

4.) Now, want to be guaranteed to win an image? Here is how!!! I am adding a sketch challenge to this hop. ALL YOU HAVE TO DO TO WIN AN IMAGE is to make a card based on this sketch during the duration of the hop, add it to your blog with a link back to the hop, leave me a comment so I can go back and see your car

Here is the sketch
Here is a card I made using the sketch. You will see where I rearranged a few things to make it work for me. I am flexible, I just want to be able to see that you used the sketch as your inspiration. :)

Challenges: Creative Card Crew: Punch it
Spoon Full of Sugar: Layering
Dare U 2 Digi: Buttons
Stamp, Scrap, Doodle: Girly

She is colored with skin copics and prismacolor markers. The papers I used for this card are by K&Company. The border punch is by Martha Stewart. Buttons from stash. Flower is from the Paper Studio

This last card I created for the hop is
Hannah Belle Sitting Pretty

She is the very first Hannah Belle I drew
and is the one that got the series started.
My inspiration? .......

Challenges: The Pink Elephant: Sketch
Spoon Full of Sugar: Layering
Creative Card Crew: Punch it

She is colored with skin copics and prismacolor markers. The patterned paper is by American Craft. The paper punch is by Martha Stewart. I created the holes around the circle with my cropodile, used a Marvy scallop circle punch for the center, and embossed it using the swiss dots cuttle bug folder. The sentiment is an snag 'em clear stamp.

I do hope you enjoyed the hop!!! Remember, the hop lasts until FRIDAY at Midnight in case you think you missed it or want to play along with the sketch. I will have more cards to share with you between now and then so be sure to stop back by :)

Thank you for sharing part of your day with us. God bless!

Heather Dennis
