Fussy and Fancy Featured Guest Designer for challenge 119 - Words

Hello and happy Friday!

 
******** 
  
Today the Fussy and Fancy girls
are happy to introduce
our very talented
Guest Designer

Deonna Bemish



Here's a little about Deonna: 

Hi, My name is Deonna  Bemish.
I have a wonderful husband of almost 18 years and
two children (Both teenagers, ugh) .
 
I’m a Registered Nurse by trade but, i gave that up for now to be a Current Childcare worker at our church for one and two year olds.
 
  My heart belongs to the paper-crafting world and every chance that I get, that is what I am doing. I am currently on 3 card Design teams and love every minute of it.
 
I was very honored to be asked to be the featured Guest Designer for Fussy and Fancy this week. With our county fair ending last week, I chose to make a “farm” shaker box, monochrome card with a cow. I also chose to follow the current challenge theme of “Words”. I hope that you like it and thanks for having me. . 
 
Deonna

 

*******

Deonna has made a 
wonderful monochromatic shaker card
for our current challenge, "Words"!

 
Isn't her card adorable?
Just look at the fun country, white, eyelet lace,
stars and button!
And Deonna certainly wasn't at a loss for words!
What fun sentiments, and what a nice touch
to tear her black and white paper!
I really love that she made her adorable cow card
into a shaker box card as well!
This card is certainly guaranteed to bring a
big smile of delight to the special person who
receives it on their birthday!
 
Your card is absolutely delightful, Deonna!

Deonna's blog

For the love of cardmaking
 
to read more about her lovely card and
to see more of her beautiful creations!
I do hope that you can stop by to visit her.
 
It's been a real pleasure, Deonna

talent with us!

Our challenge for the next fortnight is
being hosted by our very own

 

Hey, it's Friday and time for a new
Fussy & Fancy Challenge,
I am very excited to host this challenge, especially as it is being sponsored by Marianne Designs.
 
 I have chosen a "word ... it's about feeling" as the challenge theme because I love
 cards with beautiful words on them.

      I'm Annie, and I live in Bangor, North Wales.

            It is a very beautiful part of the country that lies between the mountains and the sea.

 

I am now retired after many years working in retail as a customer service manager.
 
I have been creating in one form or another as long as I can remember, but nowadays it is mainly card making
and altered art that keeps me occupied and amused.
 
In fact, if I'm honest I do not know how I found time to go to work before I retired!
 
I hope you will be inspired by the beautiful work the Fussy and Fancy girls have done and will give this challenge a go!
 
Crafty Hugs Annie


The challenge Annie has chosen is:
 
Words
All about the feeling 
 
 


Here is the lovely
card that Annie has created for her
"Words" challenge.

Annie
Marianne die: LR0151 and LR0271 Sheet & LR 0240 Frames


 
 
Please pop on over to Annie's blog to

beautiful card!

our very talented
Guest Designer

Nikki Stalker!


That's right!
Nikki
is now a
Fussy and Fancy Girl!


Hi. 

I'm so excited to be the Featured Designer at Fussy and Fancy
for their, "It's All About Girls" challenge and even more excited
to be joining the wonderful Design Team as a regular member!

I live in Sydney, Australia with my husband and our 4 daughters.
Our girls are 18, 15, 14, & 12 years old.

I work from home in our business which gives me very flexible hours
to craft and be with our girls.

I have dabbled in many crafts over the years from knitting, crochet,
macramé, cross-stitching, sewing, machine embroidery, quilting
and now stamping & paper crafts.

I started stamping about 13 years ago and haven't looked back.
Last year I purchased a Silhouette Cameo and I am having so
much fun creating 3D items to incorporate with my stamping.

Nikki has made a lovely card
for our current, "It's all about Girls" challenge!

 
 
Isn't her card beautiful?
Just look at the beautiful pink and cream designer paper
and the lacey die cuts she used to
frame her card with coordinating
pink and cream paper. 
The layered oval die cuts used to frame her adorable
Tilda are so pretty and the spray of lovely
flowers and pink bow add the perfect finishing
touches along with the wide lace at the bottom.
 
Such lovely details.
Your card is absolutely beautiful Nikki!
