Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge-Flowers and Lace and DT call

Hello!
I can hardly believe that it's actually been a whole year since
I have had the pleasure of creating a card!
This card is for the Fussy and Fancy Challenge that I am hosting!
The challenge is
I used this adorable



I colored this Sassy Birthday Girl with copics.
Then I had fun adding the last bit of my favorite lace
and from there I went a little crazy with the flowers!
When I was adding some crystal effects to the cake,
I accidently dropped a glob of it on the card and ended
up adding some translucent confetti to cover it up!

I am looking for one or two new 
Fussy and Fancy Girls for my
Fussy and Fancy Challenge Blog!

If you are interested in being considered, simply add a DT after your
name when you enter a card and e-mail me at
fussyandfancy@hotmail.co.uk
with your blog link.

I hope to create a lot more cards in the very near future!
I really do find it so very relaxing!
Thank you for visiting!

Hugs, Sheryl

Digi's for Debbie Fundraiser!



Good morning and welcome to the Digis for Debbie Fundraiser Blog Hop.  Recently, we learned that Mrs. Debbie Lynch, the beautiful and loving mother of Heather Dennis, owner of Fresh Brewed Designs, was diagnosed with a rare form of uterine cancer.  As most of you may know, cancer related medical costs can be quite expensive, and Mrs. Debbie currently has no medical insurance, which makes the cost significantly higher.  Therefore, we have decided to help raise enough money to cover these medical expenses, as well as aftercare expenses, by creating a digi shop.  All the proceeds of the Digis for Debbie Fundraiser Shop and the Fresh Brewed Designs Store will go directly to Mrs. Debbie to fund her lifesaving surgery and the aftercare necessary to bring her back to wellness.  Furthermore, Heather has created a Give Forward account to assist her mother. 

If you would like to help, please stop by the
and/or the Give Forward Account. 

For those of you who are not able to contribute monetarily, we would love for you to add Mrs. Debbie to your prayer list.  If there is one thing we know, prayers can work miracles that money cannot and healing and wellness is what we are praying to receive.

The hop launches today, Tuesday, July 14th on the Fresh Brewed Designs Challenge Blog, and will run until Tuesday, July 28th @ 11:59 PM Eastern Time.  All participants can be found in the linkies section of *this post on the Fresh Brewed Designs Challenge Blog, and we would love to have you join us!  We do ask that you use a digi from the Digis for Debbie Fundraiser Shop or the Fresh Brewed Designs Store, and the theme is Anything Goes, and you can enter as often as you would like.  Two prize packages will be awarded, one prize for a digi purchaser and one prize for a blog hop participant.  Winners will be chosen on Saturday, August 1st.  The prizes will consist of stamps, papers, ribbon, embellishments, etc.; plus, some random prizes will be offered by some generous blog hop participants along the hop.
  
 I enjoyed creating with the digi
All Smiles
(Debbie with granddaughter, Hannah)
created by Carolyn Bounds
You can purchase this digi at the store here
 I love this digi and the pretty flowers in their hair
inspired me to surround them with flowers
in tropical colors!
 
 
Thank you for dropping by and for helping us with our fundraising efforts; and again, we ask that you keep Mrs. Debbie in your prayers.  Have a wonderful Tuesday, crafty friends!  We look forward to admiring your creations! :) 

Warmest Hugs,
Sheryl

Shoe Sale at FBD!

Hello and Happy Tuesday!
I am so excited about sharing one of
Heather's brand new Digi Stamps from her
new release today!

Who has a friend who loves to shop for shoes?
I know more than a few!
There is something very special about buying
a new pair of shoes!
No outfit is truly complete without the right pair of
shoes to compliment it.
 
Heather at Fresh Brewed Designs has
created a digi for you to make the perfect
card for all of your shoe shopping friends!
 
Here is my card using the adorable
"Shoe Sale"  
 
 
How many times have we all stopped to
admire the most gorgeous pair of shoes!
In my case, I have to remind myself that they
would most likely hurt my feet!  Sigh....
 
This isn't the only new digi being released today!
Please pop on over to the
to see the other new digi stamp that Heather is releasing and
the lovely cards created with them, by my very talented
DT friends.

Fresh Brewed Designs "Girlfriends" Challenge

Happy Wednesday!
I hope that all of you are having a
great week so far!
I am just loving this beautiful weather.
We planted some pretty flower pots for the
back porch and picked up some vegetables
to start planting in our garden this season.
I love being able to pick fresh vegetables
from my back yard to serve with dinner!
I am really looking forward to the tomatoes!
To me, there is nothing like the taste of a fresh garden tomato!
 
Today the Challenge is
Girlfriends
 
Heather created a special new digi stamp
that I enjoyed working with!

Best Friends


"Best Friends" is a fun and versatile digi stamp!
Just color the hair to look like you and your friend!
I had fun creating with pink and grey!  
I think the colors are soft and pretty together.
