Challenge 1: New


Happy New Year, and welcome to our first Fussy and Fancy Friday challenge! Because we are a new challenge blog, and this is a new year, our first challenge theme is--NEW! Use the theme however you would like: new year, new stamp, new product, new baby, new home, new anything! We decided it would be fun to use our Fussy and Fancy blog colors in our creations, but you may use any colors.

Our first challenge is sponsored by
Paper Makeup Stamps, who have kindly donated the sweet digital fairy images used by several of our design team members. Paper Makeup also offers rubber stamps in various motifs, such as fairies, children, animals, dinosaurs, and monsters, as well as a nice selection of sentiment stamps. The lucky winner of our random drawing will receive her choice of any stamp set or two individual stamps from Paper Makeup! What a generous prize--thank you Katie!

To be eligible for the prize drawing, please link your "new" creation (link the post, not just your blog), with Mr. Linky by 8:00 p.m. PST (GMT-8) on Thursday, January 14.

We hope you will be enjoy the creations of our talented Guest Designers, Christine and Natalie. Christine made a gorgeous pink and black card with Miss Anya, and Natalie made a lovely scrapbook page featuring her NEW BABY! Congratulations Natalie! (We came up with our pink and black idea after Natalie had already made her page.)












We hope you will also be inspired by the creations of our fabulous Fussy and Fancy Design Team, and encourage you to leave some nice comments on their blogs:












Juanita



Justine






Mindy



April Rose


Later today we will post the random winner of our fabulous blog candy!

Again, we wish you all a Happy New Year, and Happy Crafting!

Hugs,

The Fussy and Fancy Girls
