Guest Designer for Challenge 76 - Feeling Blue


Hello and happy Friday!

********

Today the Fussy and Fancy girls
are very happy to introduce
our very talented guest designer


Here is a little bit about Sharron:

Hi everyone!  I live in southern California and have been
married to my best friend since 1973.  I am the proud
mother of 3 amazing grown children and grandma
to 3 beautiful grandkids

I've loved paper crafting all of my life beginning with
hours spent colouring with my Crayola crayons
and paper dolls.  My love affair with paper continued
when I began rubber stamping which has opened
up a whole new world to me.  I love anything
vintage but don't limit myself to that style

I've learnt so much from my many awesome
friends in the crafting community and I feel so
very blessed to be a Guest Designer
for Fussy and Fancy

I can't wait to see all of your "feeling blue" creations!

Here is the festive card
that Sharron has made for our
current challenge:

(click on the title above to go to the challenge)


We love how you've chosen to
incorporate the blue theme into a
Christmas card blending several
different papers together and embellishing
it with those gem snowflakes and that fab
little stocking and bells

We hope that you can
visit Sharron's blog


to read more about this gorgeous
card and to see more of her work

It's been a real pleasure Sharron - thank you!

Guest Designer for Challenge 75 - Pearls and Flowers


Hello and Happy Friday!

********

Today the Fussy and Fancy girls
are very happy to introduce
our very talented guest designer


Here is a little bit about Desire:

I'm born and bred in the friendly city of Port Elizabeth
(South Africa).  I met my best friend and life partner
on Valentines Day in 1983 at university and we have
been married for over 27 years and now live in 
Johannesburg.

I am a keen photographer, avid gardener, energetic
hiker and love to be outdoors blending with nature.
I've been teaching scrapbooking and cardmaking
since 2002, although scrapbooking has been part
of my life since a friend introduced me to it in 1999.

Here is the stunning card
that Desire has made for our
current challenge:

(click on the title above to go to the challenge)





Your love for life clearly shows in your
card with the soft blend of colours
and the delightful image of the
ballerina so beautifully coloured.

We love how you've given some shape
to the flowers and added the pearls
to give more depth and your verse
is so apt too!

We hope that you can
visit Desire's blog


to read more about this gorgeous
card and to see more of her work

It's been a real pleasure Desire - thank you!
