Fussy and Fancy Featured Guest Designer for Challenge 164 - Dies and or Punches!

Hello once again!

********
 The Fussy and Fancy girls
are back to introduce
our very talented
Featured
Guest Designer
Lynda Cooke

Here is a little bit about Lynda..
.
Hi :-) My name is Lynda and I'm 34 years old.
I live in Surrey, England with my three rescue cats, Noah,
Jinx and Ruby  and my awesome partner in crime Steve.
I work as Corporate parent for teenagers who have
been in care during the day
and I'm a domestic goddess at night, although my baking does leave a lot to be desired so I'm told :-)
 I love everything crafty!! I got into card-making two years ago.
I got really ill with a tumor on my leg and couldn't walk very well.
My boyfriend bought me a card-making magazine and some crafty bits and  I've not looked back since.
Like most crafters I have tried everything once, but card making is my favorite.
I'm so happy to be a guest designer for such a fantastic blog!
Lynda xx 


And here is the Gorgeous card that Lynda created for our
Dies and or Punches Challenge

Now how ADORABLE is this little Magnolia ballerina?!
Lynda, your die cuts are absolutely beautiful!
Your colouring and eye for detail make for such a lovely card!
I love the pretty pink...It's so very feminine with the
flowers, pearls and lace!
The stitching around the, "Happy Birthday" really  makes it pop!
Your card is so very pretty!!
.

Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge 164 - Dies and or punches

Happy Friday
Fussy and Fancy followers!

********
Our challenge for the next
fortnight is hosted by our
very sweet and super talented

Lozzy

Hi everyone it's Lozzy here to host our new challenge "Dies and or Punches"


I have been Crafting now as my hobby for about 5 years and love every minute of it. My main passion is card making using rubber and digi stamps as I love to colour using Oil Pastels with a water brush. I try and vary my designs from CAS, Frilly and Flowery to a bit on the darker side but it just depends on when I look at an image to what I am going to do.

For our Challenge I have used dies and a punch plus this cool image called Rebel  from The Paper Shelter who have kindly agreed to sponsor our challenge.

Lozzy has chosen... 
Dies and or Punches
as her theme for our new challenge!!  


Here is the beautiful
 tag that Lozzy has created
to share with all of us!
Lozzy
What an adorable tag, Lozzy!
The Paper Shelter, "Rebel" digi is adorable and
I love the pink and blue pastel colours!
Your colouring is beautiful as always and your
die cut flowers came out so pretty using a
coordinating design paper! 
This is such a pretty birthday tag!

Why not pour yourself a cup of coffee or tea and enjoy
visiting Lozzy's blog!  It's always a treat to see what
she has been working on!


We are excited to announce
our new sponsor
The Paper Shelter
 for this challenge!

Our Second Featured Guest Designer for Challenge #163 "Birthdays"


Hello once again!
********
 The Fussy and Fancy girls
are back to introduce
our second very talented
Featured
Guest Designer
for our "Birthday" challenge!!

Hiya everyone, my name is Jay.
I was thrilled to be asked to be featured GDT,
as even a small part of such a talented team of girls.
I live in the Wirral (UK) and I am married to my one in a million hubby Paul,
who is not only the love of my life, but my best friend too. 
We live with our daughter Ashleigh who is away from home at the moment,
studying at university.
 I have been crafting one way or another all of my life,
 but card making has taken over the last decade!
I absolutely love Magnolia images and I am currently Co DT lead at LHOSM challenge.
I am usually first in the queue when Magnolia release their new collections he he!
As you may have guessed, I think my style is fussy,
I love embellies and always get a bit carried away when making my cards.
Crafty Cuddles Jay xx

And now here is the stunning creation that Jay has made just for us...

Oh my goodness Jay!!
What a truly fabulous card...
from the wonderfully shaped easel style, layers of fantastic embellies...

Simply stunning!!

Featured Guest Designer for Challenge #163 "Birthdays"

Hello
 Fussy and Fancy followers!
********
 The Fussy and Fancy girls
are here to introduce
the first of two of
our very talented
Featured
Guest Designers
for this challenge



My name is LudmiƂa, my friends call me Ludka.
I’ve been present in the virtual world for several years as Ludkasz.
I’m a teacher, like I had dreamt since my childhood.
I like my work very much.
 Since I was a child, creating has been my hobby.
Now I’m keen on paper art, I make postcards, photo albums and so on.
 I love flowers and butterflies, there are many of them in my works.
Laces, pearls and tapes are also something I add very often.
I can’t imagine my work without punchers;).
My favorite styles are retro and romantic.
Paper art includes also decoupage. 
I like this technique as well.
Sometimes I manage to enthuse somebody with this passion:)
Besides I create felt or mineral jewelry, also in retro style.
I am very glad that I can be a guest designer.
I'm happy.
Thank you for such a possibility.
Kisses from Poland Ludka

And here is the gorgeous card that Ludka has made for us...


Wow Ludka!!
This is simply chalk full of fabulous embellishments...
your design is so very beautiful!!
It must have taken you forever to cut/punch out all these gorgeous flowers!
There are so many lovely details to take in!!

Thank you Ludka for joining us as one of our Featured Guest Designer at
Fussy and Fancy!!

********

You really must pay a visit to ...
Ludka's  beautiful blog is simply full of inspiration!!
