For this week's showcase card from the entries we received last week, I picked this gorgeous and creative card from Teresa Arsenault.  I absolutely loved the big gorgeous yellow rose and the way she made her tag. Congrats, Teresa, for being showcased and be sure to pick up the badge!

And now for our new sketch for this week!!
I'm delighted to be working with some very talented ladies. Here is some divine inspiration from our so very talented Sketch team!! 

Pat has used Sunflower Garden by Make It Crafty.  What an awesome and beautiful card!!  Great coloring and shading on the flowers and leaves, Pat!

Who's hungry for yummy cake?  What a delicious looking card in the pink and black color combo! This has to be one of the prettiest cards I've seen!!

Using Elise Gift
Sandra's card with Elise is beautifully colored and is so beautiful in the non-traditional Christmas colors! The snowflakes are heavenly!!

Using Jacinta Sitting Dreaming and Fern Log
Andrea's card is super gorgeous with such a calming and vintage feel to it!! I must find out where she got those mushroom charms!!

Using Chasing Nova by Make It Crafty
I think my favorite MIC images are the little girls with the big eyes!! They are irresistably cute, don't ya think???

Thank you for looking at our cards and we hope that you found some inspiration to take part in the Sketch Challenge!!
Feel free to flip or rotate the sketch, as long as we can see that the sketch was your inspiration.

Hope you will join us and don't forget to put your card in the Gallery and tag it!

Digis for Debbie Fundraiser Blog Hop

Good morning and welcome to the Digis for Debbie Fundraiser Blog Hop.  Recently, we learned that Mrs. Debbie Lynch, the beautiful and loving mother of Heather Dennis, owner of Fresh Brewed Designs, was diagnosed with a rare form of uterine cancer.  As most of you may know, cancer related medical costs can be quite expensive, and Mrs. Debbie currently has no medical insurance, which makes the cost significantly higher.  Therefore, we have decided to help raise enough money to cover these medical expenses, as well as aftercare expenses, by creating a digi shop.  All the proceeds of the Digis for Debbie Fundraiser Shop and the Fresh Brewed Designs Store will go directly to Mrs. Debbie to fund her lifesaving surgery and the aftercare necessary to bring her back to wellness.  Furthermore, Heather has created a Give Forward account to assist her mother.  If you would like to help, please stop by the Digis for Debbie Fundraiser Shop, the Fresh Brewed Designs Store, and/or the Give Forward Account.  For those of you who are not able to contribute monetarily, we would love for you to add Mrs. Debbie to your prayer list.  If there is one thing we know, prayers can work miracles that money cannot and healing and wellness is what we are praying to receive.
The hop launches today, Tuesday, July 14th on the Fresh Brewed Designs Challenge Blog, and will run until Tuesday, July 28th @ 11:59 PM Eastern Time.  All participants can be found in the linkies section of *this post on the Fresh Brewed Designs Challenge Blog, and we would love to have you join us!  We do ask that you use a digi from the Digis for Debbie Fundraiser Shop or the Fresh Brewed Designs Store, and the theme is Anything Goes, and you can enter as often as you would like.  Two prize packages will be awarded, one prize for a digi purchaser and one prize for a blog hop participant.  Winners will be chosen on Saturday, August 1st.  The prizes will consist of stamps, papers, ribbon, embellishments, etc.; plus, some random prizes will be offered by some generous blog hop participants along the hop.
Thank you for dropping by and for helping us with our fundraising efforts; and again, we ask that you keep Mrs. Debbie in your prayers.  Have a wonderful Tuesday, crafty friends!  We look forward to admiring your creations! :)  

Here is what I made for this Bloghop:

Isn't this image CUTE!!!

Check out all the other beautiful digistamps in the shop!
