Nikki
 
Hi, I’m Nikki and I live in Sydney, Australia.
I’m a wife and mother to 4 girls who are 19yrs, 16yrs, 15yrs and 13yrs.
I’m lucky to work from home in our business which gives me plenty of crafty time too.
Actually I would say I craft more than I work but everything still gets done….lol
My current passions are colouring with my Copic Markers, creating 3D projects
with my Silhouette Cameo and Cardmaking. Over the years I have done
many crafts including sewing, patchwork & quilting, knitting, crochet, macramé,
cross-stitch and smocking.

I hope you all enjoy our ‘Fun in the Sun’ challenge and I can’t wait to see what you create.
 
 
As Nikki said, the challenge she has chosen is:
 
Fun in the Sun
 
Here is the Adorable
"Fun in the Sun"
Project that Nikki has created
to share with all of us!
Shut the front door!!
Eeek!  This Beach Van is OUTSTANDING!
Nikki, we love the design papers and the super fun button headlights!
I love how your adorable Magnolia beach girl has pulled this
van right up onto the sand next to the sea side!
The surf boards tell us exactly how she will be spending her
sunny days at the beach!
What wonderful detail!  We like the striped awning and the cracked open
front window to allow a pleasant breeze from the sea!
This is such a fun scene!
 
 
Nikki will be choosing the
Top 5 Winners
for this super fun challenge!

Fussy and Fancy Challenge 139 - Lavendar and Yellow inspiration Photo

Happy Friday
Fussy and Fancy followers!

********
 
Our challenge for the next
fortnight is hosted by our
very sweet and talented
Diane
Hi, I am Diane and I am from the USA in Michigan.
I was able to retire "early" several years ago
which has allowed me to really get involved in the paper crafting world.
I can only describe my style as "all over the place"
as I love just about any aspect of working with papers, inks and all
the fun embellishments that go with it!
Besides paper crafting I love to garden, cook and love animals.
I am learning to color with Copics and hope to some day
be as talented at coloring as my teammates....they ROCK!!
I hope you will enjoy the color challenge I chose for this week
and join in the challenge with us,
we are looking forward to seeing your creations!!


Lavender and Yellow
Diane has chosen this lovely
inspiration photo for her challenge
 
 

Here is the Beautiful card
that Diane has created!

Diane

Oh Diane, your card is stunning!
I love the pretty beaded pattern that you dry embossed
for the background!  The lavender and yellow is so
very pretty together!  The Eiffel Tower never looked so good!
Just look at those gorgeous flowers
teamed up with the yellow swirls and leaves.  The butterflies
are lovely and the tissue paper lantern is adorable!
The lavender ribbon and bow topped with the yellow flower
finish this card of perfectly!

Top 5 Winners
