Hi everyone!

I feel both delighted and honored to be hosting

this lovely challenge at Fussy and Fancy today.

Fussy and Fancy?  Well, what a fabulous name and

might I add, one that suits me down to the ground!
I just love the Vintage and Shabby Chic look, but I do like trying new things. 
I love creating shape cards, fancy folds and lots of different projects and ideas.
It is great when I come across new Tutorials on your blogs.
They can be so inspiring!
I get such pleasure from looking through all of your entries
at Fussy and Fancy.  What a wealth of inspiration all of you
provide us with.
And then, of course, there is my very favorite shop.  Live and Love Crafts!
Sandy is the owner, and she stocks the finest quality papers and embellishments.
Tip top friendly service with fast delivery and always beautifully wrapped and packed.
I hope that you all enjoy this fabulous, "Shabby Chic" Challenge.
What a brilliant excuse to use up all those lovely laces, pearls, frillies and fancies.
I loved making the card for this challenge and I am sure you will too.
I cannot wait to see what you all come up with.
