Our fabulous sponsor this week is Fresh Brewed Designs!  The Grand Prize winner of this week's challenge will receive three digis of their choice from Fresh Brewed Designs - a terrific prize!  Now here's a little info about the owner, Heather, and the company...

I'm Heather Dennis, the artist and owner of Fresh Brewed Designs, but first and foremost I'm the wife of one amazing husband, mother of two sweet and talented kids.  I homeschool and LOVE coffee, creating and chatting with my friends.  Fresh Brewed Designs is an online shop that opened in November 2010.  We sell a wide variety of rubber and digital stamps as well as specialize in many coffee themed images. It started with a dream and turned into something bigger.  With the prodding of a very supportive husband, family and friends, with a lot of help and a lot of headaches :) and a lot of lessons and prayers...Fresh Brewed Designs has become a place to share, create, laugh and build lasting friendships.  

Our Motto:  Fresh Brewed Designs...where creativity is brewed fresh daily.
We always have a pot brewing, so stop by and join us for a cuppa whenever you want!

Thanks Heather! We love creating with your wonderful digi stamps!
