There's Magic in the Air! It's a Fresh Brewed Designs Blog Hop!!!!

It's the first Wednesday of the month, and you know what that means for Fresh Brewed Designs ... another blog hop and image release. The HOP starts with Rhonda, so be sure to go there first! If you are hopping and got here from Barbara 's blog, then you are good to go!

This hop will not be your ordinary hop... it is full of secrets and smiles, wonder and amazement. Magical things happen when you get a group of ladies together. What kind of magic you ask? The only magic worth seeking, wanting, cherishing... the kind of magic you find in true friendship. Today we have a little bit of magical enchantment to share with you in these newest Fresh Brewed Designs images. Each tells a little story, a little mystery, a little fun, and adds just a little bit of fantasy to each creation you will see during this hop.

As children we remember those Fairy Tales about mermaids and magical worlds where fairies live. We would lay in the grass and wonder if the patch of wildflowers was full of life, if mermaids swam in the sea beneath us. It is always fun to imagine and dream.

"Some day you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again”
CS Lewis



For my card I used Cordelia in the Sand.  Isn't she just beautiful??!!  Heather has totally outdone herself with this release.  I used Stampin' Up cardstock and Blueberry Crisp DP.  I sprayed the card with Smooch Spritz to give it a little shimmer.
Thank you so much for hopping, fluttering, or splashing by today. Please continue your journey by stopping by Joyce 's blog to see her beautiful creation. There is more magic and fun to come. Be sure to complete the hop in full, you will not want to miss the surprise at the end!!!

Hop Order:
Rhonda
Kelly
Jeanette (guest)
Stacy
Amanda (guest)
Barbara
Jenn (you are here!)
Joyce (guest)
Grace
Heather (owner)

This card is also being entered into the For Fun Water Themed Challenge :)!

She is beautiful, Jenn. I love the effect of the smooch spritz. She looks like she is sunning herself on the beach before getting ready to go for another swim. Beautiful colors!
