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. 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.
All the images in my shop are hand drawn. I offer a wide range of images from coffee, cute and inspirational. I also love to create custom drawn images, so if you are looking for anything in particular, please feel free to drop me an email.

I’m not a big tag person but it was fun putting this together, I had now idea what I was going to do. I had this container I had been putting little thing in for awhile so I thought… why not dumped it out and this is what I got. I colored the center with the copic markers and sponged the edges with distress ink color tumbled glass and added viva inka gold color blue. On the right side is a prima craftsman wood embellishment. Above that I’m not sure if it was a button or not, thought it would work for a guy.

The numbers tape is from Studio G decorative tape. I printed up the up and away. I distress the edges with my NEW Zutter distresser. I cut the balloons out and if you look at the image it has rope blowing in the wind with flags, so I tried to draw them (do not draw well) and took a tiny heart punch and cut it in half and used them for the so called flying flags (not so floppy in the wind). On the clock drew in the time it was the time I finished my tag. The gears I just had.

No idea why??? Thought these would be different like flags flopping in the wind. The metal corners just only had one of each and the little thingy in the middle is kind of pretty, so added the flowers that I already had made. Added eyelets and rings.

For just 3 balloons this is also of colors but trying to add shades with the light coming from the upper left side. The right side could have been a little darker and the upper left should have been lighter. The BG’s, B, C’s and the W was for coloring the sky. The gems on the balloons are some tiny ones.  I hope you enjoyed my card.

Hey there girl! I know I've been absent from commenting, but I have been away and I have been nursing an extremely sore left hand. Went to see CATS last week and accidentally had my hand caught in the door, ooh nasty and oh so sore and it's been difficult typing.

I love your unique creation, all the elements and creativity. Hope you are well my friend. :)Sandra xo

This is one fabulous male tag! Love the combination of textures and metal, and the level of details is fantastic. Your little container of things seems to hold quite a few little treasures...
