Valentine's Blog Hop with Fresh Brewed Designs

Good Morning and welcome to the FRESH BREWED DESIGNS Valentine’s Blog Hop and New Image Release! If you are getting here from Linda's blog then you are at the right place! If not, then please go back to Heather’s Coffee Break to the start of the hop!

Thank you for taking time out of your schedule to hop along with us.
This hop will feature some of the many newly released Valentine’s digis available TODAY in the Fresh Brewed Designs Shop. These images are the perfect way to tell your someone special how you feel about them. I created a card with the image Love Bird Owls and matching sentiment.

Isn't this just the sweetest couple? Everyone hopping today will be entered in a random drawing for a Fresh Brewed Prize, so be sure to leave a comment on each blog you hop to. Everyone who snagged the Jan 19 blog badge and emailed Heather will be entered twice!

For every 10 hop participants, there will be an extra image added to the prize package for this hop, which means the more you share; the more there will be to win.

Thank you so much for stopping by. Your next hop stop will be Kelly.


Before you leave I want to let you in on a little secret! Fresh Brewed Designs is getting ready for another Rubber Stamp Release!!! Heather has designed several new stamps to add to the shop including the Cutie Pie featured on the badge below and some new coffee girls. The hop and release will be on March 1. Heather has created this badge and is asking us all to help spread the word by adding it to our sidebar and linking it back to Freshly Brewed Challenges. IF YOU DO add the badge, head over to the challenge blog, email Heather and let her know. She will add you to a drawing for a special prize that will be announced after the March 1 hop.

Thanks again for hopping with us at Fresh Brewed Designs. Have a LOVEly day!
