Introducing our newest
Fussy and Fancy Girls

Hello, I'm Judy.  For many years I made cross stitched cards and small projects (one nighters) until late 2007, when I gingerly transferred to card making. It was some time before stamping took hold but once it did WOW there was no stopping me.  I just love it! I had silently followed the blogs avidly but only plucked up the courage to form my own blog in February 2011! It was so scary hitting "publish" for the first time but now I wonder why I did not do this before. I feel I have come such a long way, am now on several Design Teams, and also am enjoying doing commissions for Papercraft Essentials magazine, the first of which was Published in February 2013. It is a great hobby, and one that is definitely a pleasure to share. Do feel free to drop by my blog at
Hi all, I am kavitha from India.  Arts and crafts always fascinated me right from my childhood. It was only after finishing my degree that I got a chance to take some formal training.
I have done a few designing courses like fashion designing and fine arts.  Then I started my own art classes and store. I am a full time crafter and I'm completely loving this journey!  After I was introduced to this wonderful blogging community , I started with card making and paper crafts ,and I am hooked since to say the least. Now paper crafting occupies most of my time. I am happy to be a part of this wonderful crafting and blogging community, where I meet amazing talented people from all over the world. I thank sheryl for giving me a part in this wonderful design team.
Hi friends~~I am Mary Lou 
I live in the country in a town called Oconto Falls which is about 1 hour north of Green Bay, Wisconsin....Yes the home of the NFL Green Bay Packers!!  I am happily married for 34 years and we have 3 wonderful kids.  With the fun loving additions of 3 grandkids and 1 granddog!!   So on my blog you will definitely see Proud Gramma pics :)
I started blogging in August 2009 after my daughter had shared her love of crafting and designing with me.  I grew up loving sewing, cross stitching, macrameing, and now I am into Copic coloring and papercrafting :))  
Some of you may have already been on my Blog and are my followers but I love new visitors because that is my way to find you in cyberland :))  It amazes me to be talking to peeps around the world!!!
I am super excited and feel very blessed to be part of The Fussy and Fancy Friday DT!!!  

I'm Vannessa,  and live in Peterborough in the UK. I'm a full time primary school teacher during the week and avid crafter at the weekends (although Sunday evening is usually reserved for school work too!). I love my job teaching year 4 children (8-9 year olds); they are just some of the funniest people you will ever meet. I live with my partner of 16 years and our very dominant cat Tallulah, who hates me crafting as she's not allowed to eat or sit on anything I'm using. She does love trying to play with my ribbons and paper flowers though, so I usually have to give in to her by giving her little bits to play with, so she'll leave me alone! 
I have always been crafty doing one thing or another, having been taught how to knit, crochet, patchwork, cross-stitch and make latch hook rugs as a child. I first started card making about 6 years ago after I bought a very cheap card making kit on eBay for something to do during the summer holidays. Although this kit was full of not so nice papers and Sizzix die cuts, it was probably the best £5 I have ever spent. It kickstarted my card making addiction and that £5 soon increased to me spending a LOT more money on my habit (oops hobby!).
I fell in love with Copics a few years ago after taking a class at my local craft store and now can't get enough of colouring in all those gorgeous images that are out nowadays. You won't find many of my cards without a bit of ribbon (I probably have enough of it to start a market stall). My style tends to be lots of layers with lots of embellishments and if left to my own devices most of my cards would be pink! The only thing I don't have in my stash is an electronic die-cutting machine, but hopefully Santa is going to bring me one of those this year (I've been asking for the last 3 years but I obviously wasn't a good enough girl before!)

Hello, I'm Yvonne.  I've recently moved with my husband from Warwickshire to the Somerset
countryside and I'm really enjoying it.  An  added bonus is that it's not far from the seaside!

I've been crafting since a young girl (many years ago!) starting with
dressmaking and knitting, moving on to cross stitch and tapestry and for the
last few years paper crafting.  I semi retired a couple of years ago which
enabled me to spend lots more time on my hobby.  I've made so many really lovely
friends through paper-crafting, enjoying time with them at workshops and
exhibitions, followed by being lucky enough to join a couple of Design Teams. 
Add social media into the mix and a whole knew world has opened up for myself
and my crafty friends.

I'm so lucky now to be joining the Team at Fussy and Fancy and I'm looking forward
to getting involved with the variety of different themes and seeing everyone's
gorgeous entries into the Challenges.
All of us at
Fussy and Fancy
are thrilled to have
five very talented ladies
joining us!
We are all looking forward to
featuring their beautiful and inspiring
work here in the future!
