CIC187 - Fresh Brewed Designs

Gobble, gobble, gobble.  Can you believe the big turkey day is almost here.  This year it feels a little more like Thanksgiving than the last couple years have.  It's been cold enough the last couple days to wear a light sweater so it feels like fall but It doesn't look like fall.  Thanks goodness this photo showed up when it did.  It's the inspiration photo for this week's Cupcake Inspirations Challenge and the perfect reminder that Thanksgiving is here.  This week we're sponsored by one of our regular sponsors Fresh Brewed Designs.  I associate coffee

inspired images to Fresh Brewed for the obvious reason but they are much more than that.  You should stop over and check out what they've got.  Play along with us this week and maybe you'll win a little shopping spree.  Wouldn't that be fun!?

I choose to go along with the fall theme and colors and the thanksgiving theme.  The image was supplied by Fresh Brewed Designs.  It's colored with copic markers and dressed up a little with Viva Glitter, a button, charm and twine.

Here's the deets:
stamp - Fresh Brewed Designs "So Thankful" digi; Close To My Heart "For Every Occasion" sentiment
ink - hp printer; Brilliance "Cosmic Copper" for sentiment
paper - MFT "Hot Fudge" cs for base and oval mat; Authentique "Thankful" pad
miscellaneous - copics; MFT "Oval Stax" and "Fishtail Flags Stax" die-namics; button; linen twine; flag charm; Viva Glitter Liner "Gold"
