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.

That's right!
Nikki

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!
