Fussy and Fancy Challenge 144 - Things With Wings

Happy Friday
Fussy and Fancy followers!
Please go here to read about our sponsors
fundraiser and how you can help.

Our challenge for the next
fortnight is hosted by our
very sweet and talented

I am Sharon 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!!! If I see a gap - I have to fill it with a die or embellishment.

I colour with Distress Markers and Inktense Pencils - I find the colouring so relaxing; why did I never enjoy it at school?!

Hugs Sharon. x

Sharon has chosen the Challenge
Things With Wings

 Here is the beautiful card that

Sharon has created!


Oh Sharon, Your card is stunning!
It's so very dainty and feminine with the pretty pink and cream shades.
Your die cut top embellishments and butterflies are so pretty
and the flowers are arranged so beautifully.
The chiffon bow and rose trim teamed up with the lovely lace
make the perfect finishing touches.
I am sure that Jessica will always treasure this lovely keepsake card for her
18th birthday.
