Home Sweet Home

Happy Sunday morning!  You are going to like today's post because I am finally getting caught up on the comment game winners!  I just want to say thank you for all your comments and emails wishing me well.  I must confess that I am doing  better, but still not back to where I would like to be.  It has been very frustrating to feel so tired, congested and dizzy for the past few weeks, it has really put me off my game!  I haven't been very good keeping up with emails so I hope you will forgive me.  I will get to the long list of winners at the end of the post, but for now a quick rundown of today's card for you.  I started with a piece of decorative kraft card as my background.  I stamped my sentiment in the corner and I distressed the edges with my scissors to give it a real shabby chic look.  I cut a strip of harlequin kraft paper and adhered a strip of sticky adhesive paper to it.  I peeled off the backing side and put the sticky side down in my clear micro beads to coat it.  I wrapped some Bakers twine around it several times and tied a bow, topped with a tiny satin flower out of my stash.  I attached the strip to my background, then matted the entire piece on black card.  I cut three of the houses from the Home Sweet Home die set after I stamped them all with "hello".  I cut out three roofs for them out of coordinating decorative papers and attached a small button to the chimneys of each.  I used the paisley embossibility folder to give texture to all the houses before mounting them on my card.  I slightly overlapped my houses in a three piece cluster and added three buttons in the corner to finish my card.  Very different from my usual type of card, but I am trying to show a wide variety so there is something for everyone's tastes.

Good Morning Sue,
Sorry to hear you are not quite 100% health wise. Please look after yourself, miss your visual inspiration, hope to have you back on our screens soon.
How selfish am I when you are with your Mom and enjoying being there.
Right!! back to the card......... I like it, not your usual but a idea that will be very useful. Those colours for a man but for a couple moving house, I would do it with brighter colours but that`s me.
Have a Great Day

scottish crafter said...

Hi Sue WOW I have been named as a winner great made my day. Every morning as I sit with my coffee I log on to see what beautiful creation appears on your blog and have never been disappointed.

Another card out of your comfort zone but lovely none the less.

Glad to hear you are on the mend just relax and get back to 100%.


Jenny L said...

Hi Sue,
and good morning to you. This card is great, can be used for a few different occasions. Sorry to hear your still not 100%. I hope your feeling on top form so to speak soon. Congrats to the winners of the comment game. It's a damp and dreary day here at the moment. I hope your having better weather out there. Have a great crafty day everyone.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Jan said...

Morning sue, I really like this as I try to keep variety in styles of card I try to match the style to the person if you know what I mean!! Happy crafting! X

englishrose897 said...

Great card Sue.

Pam said...

Morning Sue, glad to hear that you are "on the mend". Hope you enjoy the rest of your visit with your Mom. This card is not your usual style but striking for a male card or could be adapted with softer colours.

Lara B said...

Good morning Sue

Sorry to hear you are not quite feeling 100% well! You need some extended R & R

A friend of mine has very recently moved house, a card very similar to this may be winging it's way to her, if you don't mind me borrowing your idea..pretty please!!!

Can I say a big THANK YOU...I've just read my name on your list, many many thanks!!

Take care

Lara xxx

Karen said...

I love the simplicity of this card and I do like the use of kraft card.

Janet x

Ali W said...

Agree with some of the other comments, would do brighter for house moving, is suitable for the male species though. Hope you get well soon and fully recovered to get back to rainy UK, mind you, If I was you and it's brighter weather in Florida I'd stay there! Although having said that we need you back here doing all your inspirational demos, when are you next on TV? Gosh this is totally selfish on my part, you need to get 100% fit, but we do miss you! Take care Alison :)

joy said...

Well congratulations to all the winners.

Hi Sue,so sorry that your still unwell.Feeling dizzy must be the worst i do hope you are well soon.
I so wish i had seen this card a few months ago! I had to make my Nephew a new home card,i had no house stamps and how no ideas that i went out to buy one which was hard as all had couples on them or looked very girlie!Anyway i managed to find one.But this would of been perfect and i have a house shape i found on a cricut cartridge!Typical,but i can now keep your idea for another day if thats ok.
I too have been picked out in your draw so a very big thank you.
Rest up and be well soon,

nzillingworth said...

Hi Sue
and well done all u lucky winning crafters.
Smashing colours and not symmetrical. Brill job. Haven't done one of the aged cards,(rough edges) just never seems to be enough time to do it all. Good way to use up those bits of matching papers/card this. Always love that as scrap bin soon fills up. Just thought the hounds tooth embossing folder would be a really fantastic roof tile on this project hehe .
Great work. Hope your tap dancing and singing soon xxx

Morning Sue, Glad to hear that you are feeling a bit better but it will take time I think to get properly back on track as it has probably been building up. Take care, I had dizzy once and it was an ear infection.
Great card today, congrats to the winners.

You have obviously been overdoing things and your body is telling you to have a rest. Miss you, but I am sure there will be loads of cards for us to enjoy on your return. Today's is different to your usual style, but lovely none the less. Definitely a man's card I think.
Enjoy your day.

Fab card, loving all the grungy colours, hope you are back to your old self soon - must be the combination of sailing, then flying - oh- and being on telly so much, you must have been completely worn out. Hope you are resting!

erica said...

What a stunning card!
Erica x

Margaret said...

Very interesting use of colour and textures which serves as a useful lesson for the future.
Hope you keep improving, slow but sure. Do keep getting plenty of good rest and enjoy the time with your Mom, which is always special. Take care.

Sue Parish said...

Hi Sue,
How did you know my Home Sweet Home dies arrived in the post yesterday?!! Was so suprised when I saw this card! Can't wait to try.
Am both disappointed that it won't be you doing the Spellbinders POTD on Tuesday (I spotted looking ahead in the Ideal World/C&C schedules) and relieved that you haven't got to make another long haul flight so soon. You are missed very much but your health is more important and right now being there with your Mum, getting some TLC and as much rest as you possibly can (given that you're not normally the kind that can sit about doing very little!) will be the best for you.
Hopefully you'll be buzzing around at full speed again before long.
Congrats to all the winners - phew, what a long list this time!
Sue x

Nanna Tina said...

Hi Sue
This card is not the sort in my 'comfort' zone, but you never know I might try it one day, keep taking it easy and enjoy the time with your Mum and look forward to seeing you on C&C in the future.
Love Tina x x

Phil D said...

Keep up the recovery and hope you are in top form real soon.


Oops your card is great as usual

Planetsusie said...

Hi Sue - must admit I didn't buy these dies (well I had to tell my hubby that I didn't buy EVERYTHING!) I think I would still have a go at making this one though - the use of the papers and the embossed effect is just right! I love the use of the buttons and the little rose on the twine - brilliant card!

Glad to hear that you are on the mend, albeit slowly. The fact that you had been working so hard must mean that your immunity was down and time with your mom will help build it up again. Missing you over here but glad you are looking after yourself over the pond!

Hugs Sue Pass xx

What a load of lucky winners - congratulations to all!

scrapper said...

Love this card - so different from your usual style but very useful and trendy

Love the card Sue! That is some list of winners!How do you manage to be so organised with posting on this blog and sorting out comment winners even when you arent at 100%health yet. Hope you soon get back to normality!!!

sheila said...

Hi Sue, so sorry that you are still not 100%, hoping you are back to rude health soon.Enjoying seeing this other side to your card making, a little grungy softened with that beautiful rose.

magpie said...

Hi Sue, this card is different to your usual card, but still a good one none the less! Love the house dies & the buttons added to the chimneys! The background can be used for a man's card for any occasion or if for a lady moving house more feminine paper/colours. It's good to do different anyway as we all know you can't please everybody.....! I just love how you think outside the box! So sorry to hear that you're not a 100% health wise. Sounds like you've picked something up. These bugs do tend to keep a hold on you! Hope you get better soon Sue, try & rest as much as you can. Congratulations to all the lucky winners out there! Wonderful! Take care Sue & enjoy some precious time out there with your mum x love karen xx

mags said...

Very different card Sue but very striking. Fab for a moving house card.
Take card and hope you feeling much better soon.

Vick McClean said...

I'm hoping that you are gonna get better now as you sound like you are at the other end now and there is finally light at the end of the tunnel, we need the happy go lucky Sue back!!! Good Luck to all the ladies that have won something and thankyou Sue as usual for being so generous, and such an inspiration to us all, a question, when are you on C&C again with Spellbinder bundles?? as i didn't buy this last time as im not into cut, fold and tuck (lol) much easier to type!!! but wanted the bundles before that week and was too late......all the best and get well real soon, love Vick xxxx

Hi Sue another great card bril for new home great to see what you can come up with I looked at these dies on Friday and said to my Mum don't think I would use these much, how wrong could I be! Take care and hope feel better soon, sending hugs your way, Fiona xxx

Lucy said...

Congratulations to all the winners. That's quite a list. I know I say this a lot, but THIS ONE IS MY FAVORITE! ;-) There is not a single thing about this card that doesn't appeal to me. It's got it all. I read a lot of comments about this being good for a male card. I'm not male and would love to receive this card and wouldn't think twice about making it for a female. As they also say, "that's just me." Tee hee! Glad you're improving steadily and surely. You'll get there. Enjoy your forced rest; it may be awhile before you have a good excuse again.
