Guest Designer Spot for Challenge 62 - Butterflies, Ribbons and Punches

Hello and happy Friday!

Today the Fussy and Fancy girls are
 very proud to introduce our very
 talented Featured Guest Designer

Mina Hartley
 Here is a little bit about Mina:
Hi everyone, I'm Mina.  I seem to have been crafting forever but
 it's really only been about four years!  My main love is papers,
papers, papers oh and ribbon of course.  Since I started my blog I've
met some wonderful crafters and I'm on some amazing DT's too.
There are so many talented people about aren't there?

I live in Northern Ireland with my ever patient and gorgeous
husband.  We've been married for 36 years and have a
stunningly beautiful daughter (yeah ok I'm a little bit biased).
I'm a Geordie girl at heart though and still speak with the accent
despite being in Ireland for a long time.  I mainly make cards, sometimes
altered objects, but as to style I don't think I really have one, but
I love trying new things!  I colour my images with distress inks using
a paint brush and water and I love cutting out from papers and using
every little bit of them.  I don't own a die cutter.... never felt the
need to really, as I would miss my teeny little scissors too much.

Sorry about the photo, it's a few years old and from my blog but I'm
one of those people who hide when a camera comes out.  Thanks
for taking the time to read this and huge thanks for choosing
me as your guest designer.  Enjoy your day everyone!

Here's Mina's lovely card for our
Butterflies, Ribbons and Punches challenge:



Your card is absolutely gorgeous Mina!
Just look at those lovely soft and pretty shades of blue,
we love how you've coloured your adorable image
and how your papers compliment her so beautifully.
Accented with those gorgeously delicate butterflies,
the pretty white scalloped punch and blue ribbon
bow being kissed by a butterfly, these are the perfect
finishing touches for your card!


We hope you can visit Mina's blog
