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."

FBD August Rubber Release and Blog Hop

Hello and Welcome to the August Fresh Brewed Designs Three Day Blog Hop! 
If you are getting here from my beautiful friend Linda's blog then you are right on track.
If you are just finding your way to our  fun filled, extra caffeinated blog hop, then please start at the beginning here: Freshly Brewed Challenges.

The Fresh Brewed Designs Team and Guests have put together another HOT blog hop for you that starts TODAY and lasts ALL THIS WEEKEND featuring handmade cards inspired by our new released Rubber Stamps. You may remember that these, just as a few others in our rubber collection, once started as digis. We were literally begged to put them into rubber.... so after a year of their hibernating, here they are! Back and better than ever - ready to be created with and to make you smile.

For my card I chose to create with the NEW HOT CUPPA JOE
 and one from last months release, Caution Contents are Hot(small)
The new DIGI Coffee Menu

For the duration of the hop, you can get these 2 stamps and a fun set of eight 4x6 American Craft double sided papers (cut by Heather) and the Coffee Menu digi for just $11. Drop on by the shop to snag yours before it is too late!!!

If you want to join in on some FUN stop by our facebook events page. We are celebrating the hop ALL WEEKEND LONG and have a few fun challenges for you there. Play along to win one of several prizes. 
One lucky commenter for this hop will win this blog candy prize package
Thank you so much for stopping by!
This is the last hop stop!!!
Stop by Fresh Brewed Designs Shop and check out the NEW STUFF. 
Have a very happy and highly caffeinated day! :D
