Hello Fussy and Fancy friends!
 
********
 
It's time to introduce
our very talented
Featured
Guest Designer
 
 

Hi I am Jennifer.

I live in the land down under, Australia.

I have been Stamping for about 5 years and I am addicted.
I Looooove Stamps and I am also a Sucker for Dies and Paper too!
 
I usually use Copics but dabble in Distress Markers.
 
My Favorite Style of Card is an Easel or Book card and  I find it hard not to use Lace or Flowers.
 
My favorite Theme has to be Christmas I could make them all year around.

 
Jennifer has created this gorgeous card for our
challenge


 
Jennifer,
Your love for making Christmas cards is obvious with
this stunning creation!
 

Your colouring is lovely and your embellishments
are so very beautiful and elegant.
Those snowflakes are
gorgeous along with the pop of pretty pink flowers!
And just look at all of the luscious lace and floral pearls
that you were so generous with! 
Whoever receives this stunning holiday keepsake
is sure to feel very special indeed.
 
Beautifully done!
 
 
 Thank you, Jennifer, for joining us as our
Featured Guest Designer at

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
Sharon


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!
 
Sharon

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.


Sharon will be choosing the
Top 5 winners
for this challenge!

Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenges.
AND NOW SHE NEEDS OUR HELP
A very special Fundraiser Blog Hop on the
will run until Tuesday, July 28th @ 11:59 PM Eastern Time.
 
 

This Fundraiser is for Heather's mom who just recently found out she has
 a rare form of uterine cancer.
She has no medical insurance and as you can imagine, it's a very
anxious and stressful time for the entire family.
She will undergo surgery to have the mass removed on July 22, and we are hoping and praying it is contained and has not spread. 
Prayers are very much appreciated for Heather's mom,  Debbie, and her family. 
If you would like to help in another way, a Give Forward account has been established
 for donations and a Digi Fundraiser for Debbie Shop has been created;
all the proceeds from both places will go directly to Heather's mom, Debbie,
to assist her with medical and medically related expenses.
Furthermore, Heather will be donating all the earnings she receives
 from the sale of any digi's at her
Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.  If you do decide to purchase something from the digi shop, and you want to participate in the blog hop
 
 please stop by THIS POST for more information so you can join them.
All participants are eligible for a prize.

 
Here to are a few cards from the hop.

 I love to make my flowers as soon as I can.
