Fussy and Fancy Featured Guest Designer for Challenge 124 - Orange and Black

Hello and happy Friday!

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

aka - Lalkygirl


 

Here's a little about Tracey: 

 
Hi!  My Name is Tracey Rogers ..aka Lalkygirl and I am originally from England
(Liverpool) but I am now very happily living in a gorgeous little town in Wales
called Milford Haven with my partner, Tony.
I have a fabulous daughter called Danielle who is now 28...
 
 I am addicted to paper crafting ....I love the amazing things that can be created from a blank
piece of paper or card.
My favourite crafty pastime is stamping and colouring any hand stamped
or digital images.   I guess my style is very girly and I love learning new techniques.
I am, also, very lucky and get to teach paper crafting three times a week!
 
I am so looking forward to being a Featured Guest Designer for Fussy and Fancy and seeing all the  
wonderful entries for this challenge!
 
Happy Crafting
Tracey

*******
Here is the Halloween gift set that Tracey
created for our current challenge

Orange and Black!
 


 What a wonderful Halloween card and treat bag set, Tracey!
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
bat and owl are so very cute! The black brads and ribbon
add the perfect finishing touches.
Whoever receives this fun Halloween set will be sure to feel very special!
I can't help but want to peek inside your treat bag!
I wonder if it's chocolate?

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.

Happy Friday
Fussy and Fancy followers!

********

 
Our challenge for the next fortnight is
being hosted by our
 very sweet and super talented
 
 
Hi! My name is Ivonne and I live in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
I am mother of a 19 year’s old beautiful young lady, who makes me proud every day.  
I also have two Chihuahuas and a rescued mixed dog. 
 
I’ve been crafting since I was a little girl.  I’ve done macramĂ©, cold porcelain,
scrapbooking, mosaics and a few more.
 
A few years ago, and thanks to my best friend Kathya, I started making cards
and I loved it immediately.
I can spend hours visiting other card makers blogs,
admiring their gorgeous creations
 and learning a lot from each and every one of them.  
I love, love, love coloring stamps, especially with Copics…it’s my stress reliever!
I am always trying to learn new techniques and to improve my coloring skills.  
 
My favorite color? Pink, of course, so I know for sure, I will be spending plenty
of time enjoying your creations for our new challenge.
 
Big hug, Ivonne
 
The challenge that Ivonne has chosen is
 
Lot's of pink!
or
Breast Cancer
Here is her gorgeous pink card!
