Digis for Debbie Fundraiser Blog Hop 7/14/2015

You can find the Fresh Brewed Designs Challenge Blog here  http://freshbreweddesigns.blogspot.com/2015/07/digis-for-debbie-fundraiser-blog-hop.html.

Good morning and welcome to the Digis for Debbie Fundraiser Blog Hop.  Recently, we learned that Mrs. Debbie Lynch, the beautiful and loving mother of Heather Dennis, owner of Fresh Brewed Designs, was diagnosed with a rare form of uterine cancer.  As most of you may know, cancer related medical costs can be quite expensive, and Mrs. Debbie currently has no medical insurance, which makes the cost significantly higher.  Therefore, we have decided to help raise enough money to cover these medical expenses, as well as aftercare expenses, by creating a digi shop.  All the proceeds of the Digis for Debbie Fundraiser Shop and the Fresh Brewed Designs Store will go directly to Mrs. Debbie to fund her lifesaving surgery and the aftercare necessary to bring her back to wellness.  Furthermore, Heather has created a Give Forward account to assist her mother.  If you would like to help, please stop by the Digis for Debbie Fundraiser Shop, the Fresh Brewed Designs Store, and/or the Give Forward Account.  For those of you who are not able to contribute monetarily, we would love for you to add Mrs. Debbie to your prayer list.  If there is one thing we know, prayers can work miracles that money cannot and healing and wellness is what we are praying to receive. 
The hop launches today, Tuesday, July 14th on the Fresh Brewed Designs Challenge Blog, and will run until Tuesday, July 28th @ 11:59 PM Eastern Time.  All participants can be found in the linkies section of *this post on the Fresh Brewed Designs Challenge Blog, and we would love to have you join us!  We do ask that you use a digi from the Digis for Debbie Fundraiser Shop or the Fresh Brewed Designs Store, and the theme is Anything Goes, and you can enter as often as you would like.  Two prize packages will be awarded, one prize for a digi purchaser and one prize for a blog hop participant.  Winners will be chosen on Saturday, August 1st.  The prizes will consist of stamps, papers, ribbon, embellishments, etc.; plus, some random prizes will be offered by some generous blog hop participants along the hop.
Thank you for dropping by and for helping us with our fundraising efforts; and again, we ask that you keep Mrs. Debbie in your prayers.  Have a wonderful Tuesday, crafty friends!  We look forward to admiring your creations! :)

Hello, Here are my creations I made to share with you. I did paper piecing on my creations. 
The first card is using Fresh Brewed Designs "Friends Support" digi and the sentiment is called"2 Timothy 1:7" from the fundraiser digi set.

The skin and lips were colored with Copics. Lips- RV10, RV13, Skin- E000, E00, E01, R20. The gems are by Recollections. The papers are by Recollections- olive, senna, plaid, kraft, Georgia Pacific- white, Papercraft Inspirations Magazine- green print, coral print, dot print. The necklaces were colored with Gelly Roll Pens Gold Metallic, Green Stardust, Silver Stardust, Red Stardust. The card is 5" x 6 1/2".

The bookmark has a tag on the end to stick out of the book. The tag slides into a back pocket when not in use. I am using "Flower 3" from the Fresh Brewed Designs Digi Fundraiser set. The sentiment is called "I'd Pick You" also from the FBD Fundraiser digi set.

The bakers twine is from The Twinery. I colored the stem with Green Metallic Gelly Roll Pen. The papers used are by Recollections- olive, dark olive, light pink, pink, rose, Georgia Pacific- white. The bookmark is 2 1/2" x 5 7/8".

This card I am using Fresh Brewed Designs "Hazel."  This card has a pocket for a tag. The tag is attached to the card. I am showing 2 photos one of the tag in the pocket and one out. The sent is called "Faith" and is from the Fresh Brewed Designs Fundraiser digi set.

 The tag was cut out using a Spellbinders die called Labels Four. The pearl flourish is by Recollections. The big pearls and bling around them is from The Craft Source. The ribbon is from the Morex Corp and the bakers twine is from The Twinery. The papers are by Recollections- pink, blue, light blue, brown, DCWV- peach, Georgia Pacific- white, Papercraft Inspirations Magazine digital papers- bots print, rainbow print. The card is 5" x 6 1/2".
