So we want to see all of those gorgeous

torn edges, hand sewing, lace etc; the list goes

There are loads of products to choose from out
there and I know, even if you haven't given this

Guest Designer Spot for Challenge 67 - Photo Inspiration


Hello and Happy Friday!

Today the Fussy and Fancy girls
are very proud to introduce our
very lovely and talented 
Guest Designer Nic
who is better known in
blogland as

Here is a little bit about Nic:

I'm a married mum of one and have been crafting for about 6 years now.
I started crafting and making cards during a spell of unemployment,
but my joy of crafting has stayed with me now that I'm working again!
I enjoy colouring stamps and images with my promarkers and find
its a great way for me to relax and unwind at the end of a busy day.

Thanks so much to the Fussy and Fancy DT 
for having me as their Guest Designer this week.


And here is the lovely beach card that
Coops made using the inspiration photo 
(above) from our current challenge:


Isn't this card gorgeous?
What a perfect image for our
challenge, just look at those soft coloured
papers with the stickled edges.  The
coloring and shading is beautiful
and those flowers are stunning!
The fun layout and pretty scalloped
edges give the perfect 
finishing touches to this elegant card

We hope that you can visit
Nic's Blog


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

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

Guest Designer spot for Challenge 66 - Fancy Folds


Hello to all of our crafty followers
and we hope that you're enjoying
your weekend wherever in the
world you are!

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

Here's a little bit about Tracey:

I live on the outskirts of Sydney, Australia at the base of
the  beautiful Blue Mountains. I live with my hubby AJ
and our crazy dog Loki.  I work full time as a marketer
for a food organisation, which sadly doesn't give me anywhere
near enough time to play card making.  I have been making cards
for about 12 months now, after being introduced to it by my
good friend Linda and now I am lucky enough to work on
several DT's and even have my own challenge blog.

I love wandering around blogland and being inspired to try new
things, but my true love is colouring with Copics.  I tend to
stick to ordinary square cards so landing the guest spot on
Fussy and Fancy's "Fancy Folds" challenge took me right out
of my comfort zone, but I'm happy with how my little
easel card turned out.  I hope you like it!

Here's Tracey's gorgeous card for our
current challenge:



Isn't this easel card lovely?  What a
sweet image you've chose to make this
very special "Egg-specting" card!  
Your coloring and shading are superb
and just look at that pretty hair.  We
love the gorgeous earth tone papers
you've chosen to use along with that 
wide lace, distressed edges and that
lovely paper clip to add the perfect
finishing touches to a truly beautiful card.

We hope that you can visit 
Tracey's Blog


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

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