Featured Guest Designer for Challenge 59 - Anything but Square/Rectangle

Hello and Happy Friday!
Today the 
Fussy and Fancy Design Team 
is very proud to feature


as our guest designer!

Here is the stunning card that
Nicki made for our
Anything but Square/Rectangle theme!
Wow!  The married couple who receives this card 
will certainly be impressed!

Here is a little bit about Nicki:
Hi, I’m Nicki from North East England and I’ve been card-making for about 7 or 8 years, after going to a stamping workshop with a friend. I thought I’d start making my own cards to save money on shop-bought ones – little did I know how addictive it would become, and how much stash I would ‘need’ to buy over the years!! I love stamping and colouring images, and also using embossing folders and dies to create texture and layers. I work 4 days a week and spend as much of my spare time as I can crafting – if it’s a choice between feather dusters and ink dusters, the inky ones will win every time! My blog name – Cards with Little Ted – comes from my hubby’s nickname for me, as well as the cute little bear in my profile photo, who is only 5cm tall.

Just look at all of the dry embossing along with those elegant pearls.  There are so many lovely details on this gorgeous purse!
You can visit Nicki's lovely blog and read all of the details for this beautiful purse shaped card at
Thank you, Nicki - it's been a pleasure!

You still have time to enter this fun challenge
as it runs until April 5th at 8pm PST

All of us at Fussy and Fancy hope that you enjoy
a wonderful weekend!


xx Happy crafting and glittery hugs xx

Design Team Call - now closed

Our current challenge
"Anything But Square/Rectangle"
can be found here

********

It's always sad when we have to say goodbye to
members of our design team, but we realise that personal
lives have to take priority.  We're going to miss seeing the
talents of Lisa and Diane going forward, but we're still
going to be seeing Susan and Guylaine's talents in the
next challenge before we have to say our goodbyes!
Thanks for all your inspiration ladies and we
wish you all well for the future.

So we're going to have to find some more talented
crafters to fill the gaps that these ladies have left and
also to boost our numbers up to full capacity again
and that's where we need you!

 
All you have to do to apply is:
  • Pick your three favourite projects
  • Create a post on your blog with them all on
  • Link that post (not your blog) using InLinkz (below)

DT requirements:
  • Have your own active blog for posting your challenge projects
  • Create 1-2 projects a month following the challenge guidelines 
  • Be willing to leave comments on challenge participants projects
  • The term will be for 6 months (May to October)

As a DT member you will get a Fussy and Fancy
Friday Challenge badge for your blog. You will also
gain the DT experience that many other challenge
blogs look for.


The design team call will run until March 29th at 8pm PST
Good luck!!

Challenge 59 - Anything But Square/Rectangle


Doesn't time fly when you're having fun?  It doesn't 
seem like 2 weeks have passed since our last challenge does it?

We still have our design team call running until March 29th
- if you are interested you can find all of the details here

Back to the challenge and for this one we would like to see cards
that are neither square nor rectangle. "Oh no" we hear you cry!!
But there are plenty of other shapes to choose from: circles, hearts,
ovals, teardrop, pyramid, etc.... the list goes on and on and on!

So maybe now's the time to try out that new 
shape you've  been wanting to try for ages.
You could become our next guest designer
or get picked for our top 5!

Here's our design team's cards for your inspiration:

I put them on everything!
