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 (me), so you are right on track!

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

For my card I used
Marina with Pearl
I used some paper I had around for a while now, as you can't really tell, but it had flowers that popped out a bit and I copied the image onto it, hoping it would show a bit more than it does. The design papers are from Ancestry.com K-which has some gorgeous vintage looking papers in it. I also used some ribbon and Pearls by Kaiser from my stash. Oh, and I must say I used Shimmer spritz, to give a little glow to the card. The sentiment (SU) is because this image is magical and so I am giving this card to my daughter for her bridal shower this next Sunday--in hopes that it help make her whole day magical!

Thank you so much for hopping, fluttering, or splashing by today. Please continue your journey by stopping by
Kelly'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!!!
ALSO! I am SO LOVING these new images, that I want a lucky person to have their choice of 3 digi images from FBD. Just comment on this card, and I will have random pick a winner on Thursday night!!
