Here is a little message from Heather to you all . . .

Hi. I am Heather Dennis. I am a homeschooling mother of 2 wonderful children, the wife of 12 years to the love of my life, a Christian and the owner of Fresh Brewed Designs. All the images in my shop are hand drawn. I offer a wide range of images from coffee, cute and inspirational. I have loved to draw and create ever since I was a child. My daughter has inherited my love of art and recently inspired me to start creating again and I have not been able to stop! God has been so good to me and opened my eyes to see the beauty in so many things that I uset to take for granted. I find myself designing almost every day and am always eager to share it with you all. I love to create custom drawn images, so if you are looking for anything in particular, please feel free to drop me an email.
Thank you "Fab'n'Funky" for allowing me to sponsor your wonderful challenge blog. Yo are a wonderful and inspirational group of ladies.

Heather kindly gave each DT member a digi image to play with and this is what the DT made incorporating this weeks theme of "Shabby Chic" . . .




Please check each DT blog to see what image they have used and how they created their "Shabby Chic" gorgeousness.

Happy crafting everyone,

"Fab 'n' Funky" DT

Welcome to another week at "Fab 'n' Funky" challenges and all the DT would like to say thank you for your continued support and participation in our weekly challenges . . . you're all stars and again, some seriously yummy eye candy projects out there this week.

Now this week we have been very fortunate to have a wonderful new sponsor who will be sponsoring the "Fab 'n' Funky" challenge every month, so please extend a warm welcome to our new monthly sponsor . . .

Here is a little bit about "Soft Pencil"
"Hello everyone! my name is Elizabeth Pujalka and I´m the illustrator and designer behind Softpencil - Digital Stamps, home of Michu and his lovely friends, where you can find cute illustrations for your crafting needs.
My illustrations are a homage to the Nature and their creatures, where a sweet child, a simple flower or a fragile animal become protagonists. I invite you to know my whimsical world plenty of gorgeous characters and to enjoy creating with them!"

Being a somewhat democratic bunch on the "Fab 'n' Funky" DT, we vote monthly for the themes we would love to use for the forth coming months challenges and we have decided that this weeks challenge is . .

"to use some form of embossing"

Now this could be an embossing folder through a diecut/embossing machine, embossed design using a lightbox, embossing corner punches, texture plates or emboss a stamped image . . . this is just a small selection of what you could incorporate on your project. To get the "ball rolling", here is the DT's take on this weeks theme. Go visit their blogs to get the full deets on how they made their project this week . . .







We also have been joined this week by the Softpencil DT members and here are their yummy cards. If you "click" their names, you will be taken to their blogs where all the details for their cards can be found:
