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!

Fussy and Fancy Featured Guest Designer for Challenge # 165 "Anniversary or Wedding"


Hello once again!
********
 The Fussy and Fancy girls
are back to introduce
our very talented
Featured
Guest Designer
for our "Anniversary or Wedding" challenge!!
Hi, I'm Andrea Norris, unknown artist - Living in Leeds, Yorkshire in the UK.  I work full time as a Management Accountant and I'm currently working on 4 design teams.  I'm a dancer (Argentine Tango and Ceroc) and a competitive badminton player.  It's amazing that I've managed to squeeze drawing into my schedule as well as being an obsessive crafter and creator of cards.  I have no actual style as yet, but do love the unusual and quirky.  I may be known for producing cards in soft pastel colours.

I love anything arty.  I've always drawn stuff, for as long as I can remember.   In my younger days I sold a few water colour paintings.  I recently found mixed media which is a joy and love creating canvases with flowers.

I've had a battle with digital drawing for about a year and finally found some software I can gel with in January 2016.  Recently one of the challenge teams I worked on was short of a designer's images to create with so I drew some.  Then people kept asking me for my drawings.  So I thought what the heck let's open a shop and give something back to the crafting world, to the lovely ladies who have supported me on my journey.

Recently I've just started my own Facebook group SheepSki Designs where I hold challenges.  Things are growing slowly so I still manage to spend at least a little time with my hubby :D

And here is the gorgeous card that Andrea has created for us...
As Andrea hasn't yet drawn an "Anniversary/Wedding" digi for herself she has used this beautiful image from
Aurora Wings...
closer view...




Absolutely gorgeous Andrea!
Your colouring and shading is simply perfection...
the way that you have framed this beautiful image is stunning!!
Truly a piece of ART!!!

 Thank you Andrea for joining us our Featured Guest Designer at
Fussy and Fancy!!

For wonderful inspiration you really MUST pay Andrea a visit!!
