 This is a great sketch for large objects or paper piecing images as it really show off your design papers.
My finished card which is dipped in brown chocolate I also coloured up a strawberry using white chocolate and couldn't make up my mind to which image I should used???

This week we have Heather Dennis sponsoring us from 
Fresh Brewed Designs

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.

We always have a pot brewing, so stop by and join us for a cuppa whenever you want!!!
