Grand Nesties Sample

Here's one of the cards that I demoed on the Tuesday evening 11pm Grand Calibur show.  I'm sure if you were one of the six or seven people out there still up at that hour, you saw the demo, but for those of you that didn't, here is a closer look at it.   No fancy technique to it, I just liked the way it came out.  There is such a vintagey feel to it.  It is difficult to get an idea about the size of these new Grand dies from the picture though.  Where's a ruler when you need one?!  
  With the Grand Calibur launch behind me, I am back to working on the POTW show which kicks off on Christmas Eve.  Currently, it is slated to be a two hour show from 11am to 1pm with myself and Jo Channon (notice how I said currently?!)  I will keep you updated on any changes that may occur.  I have already pre-recorded two shows for Christmas Day which will be shown at 8am and 11am (they may be repeated later in the day but it is not certain yet).  I have two more live shows on Boxing Day at 11am and 2pm and I think that will wrap up the shows for the year for me.  I am anxious to get to work on some new ideas that I have and hopefully be able to show those to you in the new year.  Stay safe.  All for now, Sue x

Brilliant shows, demos were excellent, as usual. Can't wait to receive my caliur. Looking forward to Christmas viewing, thank goodness for decent goods and demos over this period.
I love the way you put patterned papers together, is there any chance we could have a Sue Master Class on how you achieve the look. I tend to play safe and use plain paper/card with a bit of patterned. Also ribbon tying. Thanks Sue for sharing your gift this year and hopefully more shows next year. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Realy enjoyed the shows Sue. You really need to do your own DVD's, you have so much talent to share. I just know they would be snapped up. Looking forward to the Christmas shows. Wishing you and your family a blessed Christmas. Hugs Annette xxx

Great shows, great cards. I was so inspired by you that I have ordered a calibur, which I was not really intending to do. We have heavy snow again so don't know when the post will be able to get through. Hope I get it before Christmas!At least I will have your other shows to look forward to!

I missed your shows over the past week as I was in the UK visiting family and they either didn't get the channels or didn't let me watch (bah humbug) So I'm really looking forward to your Christmas shows.

Collected my wonderful prize whilst in the UK so can't wait to have a go. Thank you very much Sue I was thrilled with the stamp plates - well worth the wait!

Hope you have a lovely time with your family over the festive season (between C&C shows of course) and look forward to more of your particular inspiration in the New Year.

Best wishes.
Lynne in Spain

This is such a beautiful card!!! I love everything about it!!! Thanks for showing us the new grand nesties and how pretty they can really make a card. I really hope you think about doing a dvd so we can get more demos of you on the how to's. That would be great! Happy Holidays to you and yours and be safe! Mimi

Caught your POTW launch this morning---6am arrrgghhh. Fell asleep back asleep prior to the metal leaves demo. Hope there will be a repeat later in the week as I liked the impact with the coloring. Great show and have a Merry Christmas.
