Fussy and Fancy Featured Guest Designer for challenge 168- Christmas in July







Hi, my name is Dawn, I am married with one daughter and two darling grandsons who
have changed my life. I have been crafting for
the last 30+ years.
I started with Cross Stitch, Crocheting and Knitting and then when my daughter
was little I started making my own cards, initially because it was cheaper but I
fell in love with it.  I started out with one of those boxes that the fellas use for their
tools and now I have a dedicated craft room - I guess I'm not alone in that though!
I would ideally like to get into making Wedding stationery but with working virtually full
time it is difficult to put enough time aside - maybe one day


 Now here is the lovely card that Dawn has created for us...

Oh my goodness Dawn, what an adorable
Tilda image and your
colouring is beautiful! And what fun holiday ribbon!
The soft blue snowflake design paper is so pretty and
the lovely die cut and corner embellishment make the perfect
finishing touches!


  Thank you Dawn for joining us this week as our
Featured Guest Designer here at
Fussy and Fancy!!
It's been a real pleasure to have you join us!
********

Take some time and indulge yourself by visiting Dawn's blog!!
Her creations are beautiful!

xx Happy crafting xx

Fussy and Fancy Featured Guest Designer 167 - FLowers and Lace/DT CALL

Hello once again!
********
 The Fussy and Fancy girls
are back to introduce
our very talented
Featured
Guest Designer
for our "Flowers and Lace" challenge!!

Nataša P.



Hi! My name is Nataša or Narobe hiša – Nataša P. I come from a land that's pretty small but has everything (mountains, lots of forest, clean water in rivers and sea) – it's a fairyland called Slovenia. I'm 36 years old and I have a beautiful 7 year old son, he is a light in my life and also amazing and I have an understanding husband that overlooks all the »craft mess« I create.
I have been crafting for as long as I can remember. But I started card making about 10 years ago,
and started blogging a year ago.
Crafting is like a big hug for my soul – a gentle touch that I need… to relax,
to fill my lungs with positive energy.
I love the crafting world, because I can learn something new every day and it also gets me connected to many interesting, funny and creative people all over the world.
I am very pleased to be the Featured Guest Designer at Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge this week.

Many thanks to Sheryl and the DTs!
You can see more of my creations at https://narobehisa.blogspot.si/
***** 
Here is the fabulous explosion box that Nataša has created!


Oh my goodness Nataša, this is such a
special treat for whoever
receives this beautiful surprise explosion box!
I love the pretty flowers, lady bugs
and the lovely lacy doily embellishments!
Your wonderful description of Slovenia makes me want to visit there!
And I'm sure that a lot of us paper crafters
share your feelings
about how very relaxing and fulfilling it is for us!
To see more of  Nataša's talented work and explosion boxes
please visit her lovely blog

  Thank you Nataša  for joining us this week as our
Featured Guest Designer here at
Fussy and Fancy!!
It's been a real pleasure!

Fussy and Fancy Challenge 167 - Flowers and Lace and DT Call!

Happy Friday
Fussy and Fancy Followers!

********
Our challenge for the next
fortnight is hosted by me!

Sheryl



Hello, it's Sheryl here!

Wow!  It has been so very long since I enjoyed sitting and creating!  I have always considered card making my therapy because I find it so very relaxing and enjoyable at the same time!
As most of you know, I am the owner of this very special challenge blog and I am constantly filled with pride and joy when I see the beautiful cards and creations that my very talented design team creates for your inspiration!
Back in January when I was scheduling our challenges, I promised myself that I would start creating again in June, so I set a challenge aside to host myself!  And here I am!
Naturally because my private life is always so crazy, I didn't get a chance to sit and create until last Sunday!
I just want to share, how much fun I had and how relaxing it was for me!  
LOL!  As you can probably tell, I was having so much fun that I didn't want to stop!!  I was humming a tune as I kept adding more and more flowers!!  I do think that I went a little overboard with all of my Fussy and Fancy details!  
It really doesn't matter, though because this is the Fussy and Fancy blog and I had so much fun making it!!

The challenge I chose is
Flowers and Lace!
(Two of my favorite things to create with!)
I do hope that you can join us!
I would love to see all of your creations!
I will be choosing the top five winners!
I am also looking around for some new talent!
We will be adding one or two new 
Fussy and Fancy Girls
to our design team!
If you are interested in being considered, please put
A  DT next to your name when you enter your card
and e-mail me at
fussyandfancy@hotmail.co.uk
with the link to your blog.
Here is the card that I created for this
Flowers and Lace Challenge!
