The sponsor of this week's Sketch is Heather from Fresh Brewed Designs and the Grand Prize winner will receive 3 digital images of the winner's choice....woohoo!! 

I love coffee and there are many coffee related images to choose from, as well as some fun gals and cute animals too!  Be sure to check out the wonderful creations from the rest of the SSW Design Team Diva's this week and join us!

Here's a little note from Heather to all of you this week:

I am Heather Dennis, the artist and owner of Fresh Brewed Designs, but first and foremost I am 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 specializes 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!!!

Happy Monday!!  I love these little quails from Stampin' Up and just had to create another new baby card with it.  It wasn't easy because this isn't the way the stamp is with the two facing each other.  So I stamped the bigger one once, scanned it in to my computer and then before I printed it out I rotated it.  Then I stamped the second one in front of it to create an adorable couple!  The little one is popped up in front of them.
