Introducing our newest Fussy and Fancy Girls!

Hello Fussy and Fancy Followers!
I hope that all of you enjoyed a fun weekend with
some time to craft!
I am so very excited about announcing our newest
FUSSY AND FANCY GIRLS
There was a huge response to our DT CALL!
It certainly wasn't an easy decision as I hopped repeatedly
from one of your blogs to the next again and again!
There was so much talent to choose from!
For those of you who didn't make it this time, please try again
in the future.  As you know, I could only choose so many
and I was specifically looking for a different range of talent and style
to share with and inspire our followers.
So now without further delay, I am so very
proud and pleased to announce our newest
FUSSY AND FANCY GIRLS!

I have always been involved in craft, starting with sewing and knitting. Then I found cross stitching and ruined my eyes with all the detailed work. I have been making cards for about 4 years and started blogging in 2012 after finding Bev Rochester's site.  I have joked with her a couple of times about her costing me £1,000's.  (I wouldn't like to guess how many as I am addicted to dies and stamps, and paper, and card, and ribbon, and etc.... just make it anything to do with cards). Card making has taken over my home, I keep having to buy new storage units to house it all :).
I am on 2 other design teams and was on another for over a year, with a few guest designer posts during this time.  I am delighted to have been asked to join the 'Fussy and Fancy' team to work with so many amazingly talented ladies.

Hi everyone, I’m Gina from Gina’s Cards and live in the South of England. I am married to Phil who is incredibly supportive of my hobby.  I have two sons, the eldest Mike works for a large well known I.T. company and the youngest George is a Captain in the British Army, both of them have now flown the nest.  I work at a local secondary school, but can be found beavering away in my craft room during the evening and weekends. I am very lucky to be on several design teams and I also guest design for a couple more too.
I started making cards around 8 years ago beginning with decoupage and found stamping a few years later, which I am now totally addicted to. My passion is colouring, I started with Copics, but my latest love is DI colouring. I love making easel cards and packing as many dies and embellishments onto them that I can.
I am very excited about joining the Fussy & Fancy DT and would like to say a big thank you to Sheryl for inviting me to join this amazing team.



My name is Lorraine but im known to everyone as Lozzy and I live in the UK. I am 45 years old, married and have 3 daughters that flew the nest years ago but they have now given me 4 gorgeous Grandsons and I have a Granddaughter on the way! She should be with us around the 29th July. I have been paper crafting now for about 5 years and think I'm addicted to using stamps and digi stamps as I love to colour. Wish there were more hours in the day so I could be in my little craft room colouring and making cards more often.
I am so glad to be a part of the Fussy and Fancy Design Team!

I am Nanda, I am 38 years and live in The Netherlands with my two little birds. I work part time so I have enough time for making cards and scrapbooking.  I have always been creative as long as I can remember. In the past I made only 3d cards but it started to get boring (yes that is possible). I missed the challenge. In that time I discovered scrapbooking and card making with stamps. From that moment I didn't do anything else. I love card making and coloring so using stamps is a great way to combine it all. I can't say that I have just one style of card making, I just love so many things to do and try. The only problem I found is that I have more ideas than time. I hope I can inspire people to make their own cards and be creative
My name is Sharon (not Nellie as my blog suggests) and I live in England with my hubby, Russ and two mad dogs. We have 3 daughters between us who have all flown the nest.
I am lucky enough to only work three days a week so I have plenty of time to pursue my  hobby. I don't think I will ever retire as there are always gorgeous stamps, dies and embellishments I just have to have.
My cards have changed over the years and have gone from fairly basic and simple to highly embellished - I guess you would say Fussy and Fancy!!!
I colour with Distress Markers and Inktense Pencils - I find the colouring so relaxing; why did I never enjoy it at school?!
I am so chuffed to be part of Fussy and Fancy and look forward to sharing my first card.
Hugs Sharon. x 





My name is Sasha, I am 29. I am from Ukraine but last 6 years i was living in Denmark and then i moved to Germany. I am married to a wonderful man who can accept that sometimes to create a card is more important than to cook a dinner :D.  I started my card making 3 years ago - it was Christmas time and I wanted to make something special for my parents. Since then I am in love with card craft. I love to work with paper and to colour images - I discovered Promarkers and now they are always with me. I love to learn new things about crafting, to try new techniques. But the best thing about my passion - I love to make unique things for my friends and family.
I am very glad and proud to be invited to this great team of talanted ladies! I am sure that to be surrounded by such an amazing team will give me an opportunity to become better and better! 
Hi, My name is Tammy.  I live in Colorado with my wonderful husband and our two fur-babies!  I've always had some kind of crafty thing going on in my life.  But, when I started to make cards I knew it was the perfect craft for me because I love to color and create with paper.  I think the best way to describe my style would be... bold coloring with mostly "cute" images and I love my die cuts! :)


Hi, I am married and a mother of 2
lovely boys that are 12 and 7 yrs old. I work part-time so  my hands are quite
full,  but crafting keeps me sane. It is my way of getting some me time and
escaping from the everyday chores.
I have been crafting in one form or another
since I was a little girl. I became interested in paper crafting when I was on
maternity leave with my eldest and after buying my first kit I was hooked. and
as they say, the rest is history.
My favourite bit is stamping and colouring in
as to me I feel as if I'm painting. In fact very often I colour in with a brush
and water based inks.
"My name is Tone Jensen and I live in Norway under 20 minutes drive north of the capital Oslo.
I live with my husband and son (15 years old). I also have a stepdaughter (soon 30 years old). I am a fulltime worker.
I've always taken pictures and put them in albums, but  I have been scrapping since 2004. The last two or three years I have also making cards and I have relatively recently start with PL pages. I guess I am one of few that scrap everything and chronologically. But I love it, although I have only come to the year 2007 J (With PL everything goes much faster though).
Scrapping is my way to retrieve energy and relax.
I do not know if I have any special style and if I have I do not quite know what category it falls under. I'm very fond of using stencils and mist and make LO with layers. When I make cards I create everything from c & s to vintage.
Otherwise I use far too much time surfing around in the blogworld, but that's where I get inspiration."
