Happy Friday Fussy and Fancy followers

Well there should have been lots of
smiling faces on Fathers Day judging by all
of your cards, hope they liked them.

Our new guest designer and top 5 will be
announced next Friday (6th July) so
please pop back then to see if you
are amongst the winners.

I wonder how many different types of 
folds we will see by the end of this
challenge and if we will have a
favourite amongst you?

Wendy has kindly put together a
tutorial for her double pocket card 
which you can find on her blog:


 so if you've not tried making
one of these before why not pop over and
give it a go.  I'll definitely be trying one
of these myself!

Guest Designer spot for Challenge 65 - Boy Attitude


Hello and happy Friday!

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

Here's a little bit about Pinky:

I live in Craigavon, Co. Armagh and have been married
 to my best friend for nearly 33 years and he supports my
craftiness in more ways than one lol.  We have 4 grown up
kids, the eldest is 31 and the youngest and only girl is 19.
We also have a little dog called Squirt!

I've always been crafty and come from a long line of
dressmakers, bakers,  embroiderers and stitchers.  I started off
at a very young age thanks to my Mum who taught me
everything I needed to know about knitting and sewing.  I moved
into card making purely because I didn't like the sentiments and
verses in shop bought cards.  I used to make up my own poems
and verses and a lot of my cards were made from recycled bits
and pieces. I shudder when I look back on them.

I joined the land of bloggers about 3 years ago and am totally
addicted to entering challenges and working on design teams.
The bulk of my cards though are all commissions and I've been
running my own little card business for about 10 years now and
have a large customer base who thankfully keep coming
back for more so I must be doing something right!

I was so lucky when number 1 came up with this challenge,
when does that ever happen, but it got me this guest
designer spot with the fabulous girls from Fussy and Fancy.
I have to say I've been nervous about my card but after much
chopping and changing I took the plunge and sent it to
Sheryl.  Thanks for having me girls.

Here's Pinky's card for our 
current challenge:


This is such a super fun and creative card, Pinky!
We love how you've personalized this very
special birthday card and admire your beautiful
coloring and shading.  The faux stitching and fun
embellishments add the perfect finishing touches.


We hope that you can visit
Pinky's blog

to read more details about this fun card
and to see more of her beautiful work


It's been a real pleasure Pinky - thank you!

Guest Designer Spot for Challenge 64 - Swirls & Flourishes

Hello and Happy Friday!

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

Here is a little bit about Tammy:

 I live in Staffordshire in the UK and happily married with
3 daughters (23, 19 & 16) and a grand-daughter of 3 yrs,
who keeps me on my feet when I'm not crafting!

I've always loved art and have been creative from a young age.
I started off with cake decorating, flower arranging and cross
stitch making my own cross stitched Christmas cards each year.
A friend got me into handmade cards 12 years ago and I've not
stopped since!  I've designed digital cards at Daisy Company and
 Aimee Asher, but my true love is rubber and digital stamps.
My favourite being Magnolia stamps, Saturated Canary
and those adorable Teddy Bea & Bo digital Stamps.

I like spending the evening's colouring my stamps, with either
 promarkers or poly pencils, then creating when everyone as left for
school or work - my "ME" time!

Thank you so much for offering me this Guest Designer
position, it's been a real honor.

Here's Tammy's card for
our current challenge

This card is simply gorgeous, Tammy!

We love the pretty soft pastel shades you've
chosen and your image is colored so
beautifully with some lovely shading.

The fanciful flourish die is beautifully adorned
with flowers, the punched edge, that perfect
sentiment along with those purple gems add
such perfect finishing touches!

We hope that you can visit 
Tammy's blog


to read more details about her lovely card
and to see more of her beautiful work

Its been a real pleasure Tammy - thank you!
