Fussy and Fancy 59 and Some News

 I'm a bit late posting this but here is my project for Fussy and Fancy Challenge 59 Anything but Square/Rectangle. I made this for my niece to wear at her baby shower last month.

My news is, I have decided to hand over Fussy and Fancy Challenge Blog to Sazzle. I know she will give the DT, followers and participant the attention they need. It is not fair for me to hang on to it and not be the kind of leader I once was. My life priorities have changed and instead of closing down Fussy and Fancyit will continue under new leadership.

Fussy and Fancy Challenge 55

Hi everyone, today there is a new challenge over at Fussy and Fancy. Challenge 55 is Polka Dots. As soon as I saw this image posted on 2 Cute Inks Facebook Page, I knew I was going to use it for this challenge. Not sure why but for some reason Patches screamed polka dots to me. 

I made this card for my daughter to give to her teacher for Valentine's Day. Not sure yet what else I am going to make but probably something with the same image and papers.

Fussy and Fancy Challenge 53

Hello anybody out there. It has been a while since I have posted, sorry about that. Trying to take care of myself and lose weight has taken a priority in my life over the last few months. This has left less time for crafting but I think I am going to try and at least craft one day a week. We'll see how that goes.

This is my card for Fussy and Fancy's Birthday(we celebrating our 2nd birthday this week) or Animal Print Challenge. I used both on my card. I haven't colored an image in a while, it really was fun to color this sassy image by KennyK. I won this stamp along with several other KennyK stamps many month ago, this is the first one I've colored. I'm looking forward to inking up the others soon.

Fussy and Fancy Challenge 51

Wow, it's been a while since I have posted anything to my blog. My crafty mojo has been missing for quite some time now. I decide to buy this sweet image from The Paper Shelter to make for Fussy and Fancy's Photo Inspiration Challenge. I enjoyed coloring this sweet image called Cookies for Santa

Here's the Photo we would like you to use as inspiration. I  used the tree and pulled out some of the colors for my card.

SISC80 Final StampInsanity Stamps Challenge

Today I am sharing a card I made for the final StampInsanity Stamps Challenge. SISC80 is to CASE a card that you love. 
Since this is the final challenge I decided to do a Twilight card. My love of Twilight is what introduced me to StampInsanity and Beth. Oh and tomorrow a new Twilight (Breaking Dawn part 1) movie is coming out, maybe that has a little to do with it too :).

Fussy and Fancy Halloween/Fall Challenge

Happy Friday everyone. Today I am sharing my card for Fussy and Fancy Halloween/Fall Challenge. Our sponsor this time is Freshly Brewed Designs! They are offering as a prize of 3 digis of winners choice. They also sent over a few dig's for the DT to play with.

 I chose Candy Corn Spooked for my card. Since I kept the layout pretty simple I paired him up with this fun Halloween paper that I've had for a few years.

SISC 77 Anything But A Card

Today there is a new challenge over at StampInsanity. Challenge 77 is Anything But A Card so I made this magnet for my fridge. This is so perfect for my life right now because I do need a little bit of Peace, Love and always Chocolate. I used the Zen Morgan image to remind myself that I have a goal and eating too much chocolate will not help me get there.

Try a New Technique

Good morning, today I am sharing my card for Fussy and Fancy's Try a New Technique Challenge. I have to say that new techniques alway scare me. I always feel like I am going to mess things up and I hate waisting my supplies. I decided to use my Score Pal to emboss the background paper. Do you think I went overboard on the Glam Rocks? Maybe I did, but I still think it looks pretty cool. The image, Cutie Skull, is from our sponsor MelJen's Design.

Music Saves My Soul Saturday

It has been quite a while since I played along with Marcia's Music Saved My Soul, I'm not really sure why since I can't do anything unless I have my music on. Well I figured I would play along today. I am sharing a video by Blue October since I saw them in concert on Sunday. 

I had a hard time picking a song, they are my favorite band and I want to share every song from every album with you, lol. I decided to pick "The Feel Again (Stay)" because this song and video have a very strong message.

I hope you enjoy and if you want to here more of their music you can click on my little music player on my sidebar. I warn you that there may be some bad language in some of their songs. I checked this one and didn't hear any. 

is a place for fathers, mothers and children who have dealt, or are dealing with, the issues of shared parenting and child custody to find their voice and speak their mind. 

Here are a few pics from the Blue October concert on Sept. 11,2011 at the House of Blues in Anaheim, CA. They aren't the best quality but I wanted to share a few with you.
