Introducing FUSSY and FANCY FRIDAY challenges


With over 540 FOLLOWERS, I know that so many of us have anxiously been awaiting the very first challenge over at:
I was thrilled to be one of the lucky ladies chosen for their very first Design Team. This week's "theme is NEW". How you interpret "NEW" is up to you.
I chose New Year but also my newest stamp set from Unity. The Design Team decided to have a little fun along with the NEW theme and also chose to use the colors Hot Pink & Black in honor o our blog. Aren't the Fussy and Fancy Blinkies beautiful? That was the very first thing that caught my eye while cruising around blogland one day. I clicked on it and saw that not only were they giving away some super yummo blog candy but that they also had a Design Team Call. After a full year with Shirley's 2 Girls, it was time for all of us to travel new avenues. Although I am no longer part of the S2G Design Team, this is certainly NOT GOODBYE!! I have every intention of playing along in their "Twisted Thursday" challenges in the hopes of winning one of their new Digital images.
In honor of S2G, I have created a second card for the Fussy & Fancy challenge. This card uses the THEME "NEW" (there is that new Clock Stamp by Unity again) along with one of S2G's images. Ya'll know how much VERSATILITY means to me in justifying the products I purchase, so please meet my "New Year's Baby".............

Our Creative Corner: sketch
Crafty Creations: Glitter & Bling
The Pink Elephant: sketch
