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."

GOOD MORNING!!! If you are just finding your way to our super HOT,  fun filled, extra caffeinated, and mega sassy blog hop, then please start at the beginning here: Freshly Brewed Challenges.  
If you have been hopping and are getting here from the lovely SARAH'S BLOG then you are right on track! 

The Fresh Brewed Designs Team and Guests have put together an exciting and oh so HOT  blog hop TODAY and ALL THIS WEEKEND featuring handmade cards inspired by our new released Rubber Stamps. Now you may be thinking, I have seen these before. Why, yes! Yes you have!!!  But not like this!!! They have all been carefully  re-sized. They are approximately 1/2 inch smaller than the original stamp, but just as sassy and hot as ever!  For you, this means that more of your card will be visible so you can add your layers, embellies, use your nesties and all of that other fun stuff just a bit easier than before. The larger size is still available and still wonderful ... but now you have the option to choose which size works best for your stamping style!
All re-sized stamps are available cling mounted on 1/8 inch cling foam to use with your acrylic blocks or un-moutned. All of Fresh Brewed Designs stamps are made in the USA with deeply etched red rubber so you get a perfect impression every time! 

For my card I chose to create with: Caution Contents Hot Rubber Stamp in BOTH SIZES. 
I love them both!!! :) I think she is so fun and sassy and a little sexy too. 
This card was created with the

She is so versatile. I have taken her latte cup and replaced it with a key brad, a flower bouquet and more. For this card, the bride I had in mind *which would so be me also* loves coffee too, so I left it in her hand :D hehehe! This is more for a bridal shower card. .The patterned paper for this card and projects is DS Letterbox : with love by American Craft.

The Next HOT card (in keeping with the hop theme) 
I covered her dress in red stickles, placed her on this cuter than cute Gilry Girl paper by Colorbok. The epoxy chipboard heart buttons are by little yellow bicycle.
