Fresh Brewed Designs "Sugar and Spice" Blog Hop!!!


What are little girls made of? 
Sugar and spice
And everything nice, 
That's what little girls are made of.

I think even as we grow, we ladies are still made of sugar and spice and everything nice, don’t you? Today we have lots of girly fun to share with you! Fresh Brewed Designs has released 7 brand new rubber stamps...yes...you heard me correctly...7 brand new rubber stamps that are perfect for girls of all ages...and they are available for purchase TODAY! Heather has designed 3 coffee gals to add to her already sassy series of sweeties. These latte lovin’ ladies have an extra sprinkle of sweetness, cuz each new stamp has a little cherry topped cupcake added to it. We are also excited to introduce to you today Cutie Pie!!! She is a cute little butterfly fairy with a love for adventure and loves to spread smiles wherever she goes.
