Introducing our Newest FUSSY AND FANCY GIRLS!

Hello and happy Friday!
Please scroll down
for our current challenge
"Thankful"
 
******** 
  
Today I
am delighted to introduce
our newest
FUSSY AND FANCY GIRLS!
That's right!
We found even more talent to
inspire you with!

I am so very proud to introduce
you to these very lovely and
super talented ladies!
 
 I know that you will enjoy
getting to know them!
 
 

 Hi, My name is Diane Hover and my blog is Nellies Nest,
named after my dog Nellie.  
I always get a good laugh when people leave me a comment and say
"beautiful card Nellie",
I didn't know she was so talented!!  
I am married a second time to a wonderful man and we have
 5 kiddos between us,
and they have blessed us with 18 grandchildren and
we now have 2 greats...
and I am NOT that old, really!!
  I live in the winter wonderland state of Michigan...pretty, but it can get
darn right cold at times!!
 
I LOVE paper crafting and got into it years ago when I was in a
business with my sister called, "Cabin On The Creek".
We used to stamp all our own primitive tags for our sewn
Santa's and such.

I think what really got me into the paper crafting, besides doing
scrapbooking was all the gorgeous papers that were
available, they remind me of fabric.
 
So now I use my million dollar sewing machine to sew
on my cards...lol...but I love that look and at least it is getting used!!
Besides my paper crafting I love to cook (and eat) and have
big weedy flower gardens that I work in whenever I can.
.  
I have a great sense of humor, but take my card making very seriously!  
As for a style, I think my favorite is Shabby Chic..I just love that look!!!


I am looking forward to being on this amazing team of the
"Fussy and Fancy" girls
 and can't wait to get started with my first project!!!
Thanks for listening and I can't wait to see all YOUR projects in our challenges!!
Hugs!!!
Diane Hover
 
 
Gunn-Eirill

Hi everyone
My name is Gunn-Eirill, I am 45 years young,
living in South of Norway with 3 children and my lovely husband,
and one cat called Gardfield along with 100 fish.

I have always been crafting.  When I was 5 years old I was cross stitching,
at 6 years old, I was making my own clothing, and so on....

in 2007 I was hooked on paper, and now I am a hoarder.
I just love paper, trims, bling, pearls, flowers....you know girls..

My style as a scrapper is easy to explain: 3D, building weird things for
no use and no reason.  I am using my Shilhouette machine to make my own
templates.  I do always have some crazy ideas in my head
for what I am going to make, so I have 3-5 projects on my desk,
and 50 more in my head.  I wish that I had more time to make all the things
I want...one day I will....I hope...

Hugs from Gunn-Eirill

 
  

 
Thank you so much for having me Sheryl.  
What a wonderful surprise when
I returned home from vacation to find your lovely note.  I’m thrilled to be joining
this talented team of designers.
I’ve been a blogger since 2011 and have had the good fortune to be on some great teams,
Fussy & Fancy Friday now being one of them.  
I love to colour with Copics, collect designer paper and digital stamps.
I like to use stitching on my cards and have a very eclectic style….some days CAS,
other days throwing everything on.
   
My dear husband and I love to travel and enjoy time spent with family. 
 
I look forward to working with everyone and seeing all of
your creative entries here at Fussy and Fancy!
Hugs, Pat K xx

Hi!  My Name is Tracey Rogers ..aka Lalkygirl and I am originally from England

Your stamp is adorable and beautifully coloured by you!
We love all of your fun black die cuts!  They really pop
against your pretty orange design paper and your

add the perfect finishing touches.

Fussy and Fancy Featured Guest Designer for Challenge - 124 Lot's of Pink or Breast Cancer

Hello and happy Friday!

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

Jenny McRonald

 

Here's a little about Jenny: 

Hi, I'm Jenny
I live in Wirral, which is in the North West of England.
I have lived here all of my life and taught locally in Primary Education for over 30 years.
I am now retired and can enjoy my passion of card making, whenever I feel like it.

I have been interested in crafts from a very early age.
I was lucky enough to experience several at school.  I studied Art
at college and over the years, I have tried many different crafts.

While teaching, I always enjoyed novel ways of displaying the children's
work and now I see my cards as mini displays.

I am keen to try new products and techniques.  A visit to a craft show is
like putting me in a sweet shop!  Long may it continue......

I was diagnosed with breast cancer last year, so this card means a lot to me,
which is why I have included the pink ribbon hoop.  I was lucky that my
cancer was detected early and treated quickly.
 

*******
 
Jenny, we are so glad to hear that your cancer
was detected early and treated right away.
 
Now, Let's talk about your beautiful pink cards!
Your image is adorable and we love all of the pink
sparkle on her outfit and how you framed and embellished
 her picture with pretty pink buttons, bling and pink foil trim! 
 
We just can't help but notice
all of the lovely texture and dry embossing that you
added to your cards!  What a lovely effect!
The pretty pink hats, looped ribbon and sweet little
sentiment tags, add the perfect finishing touches!
 
These certainly are very pretty cards that are
guaranteed to make somebody's heart smile
during a difficult time.

talent with us!
