Want Another Year?

Hello there bloggers!  Today is a real milestone for me and you!  I have been posting every day for the past year and you have been popping in to look every day too!  I made a conscious decision one year ago to post my cards each and every day without fail and I have been able to do that! No "I'm too tired" or "I have too much work to do" excuses!   I have enjoyed it immensely so I want to say a big thank you to all of you that have been with me all the way as well as those of you that have just recently discovered the blog.  One year ago I sat looking at a huge pile of cards that I had made and realised that nobody had really seen them for more than a few seconds on air during shows.  I thought, what a waste!  By allowing me to bring them to you through my blog, I have felt a real sense of purpose for my card making. 
 I thought that I would do a giveaway today as a sort of anniversary present.  If you leave me a comment today telling me what you have enjoyed most about my blog, I will draw a winner from among the names and give away a set of the Vintage Lace dies that I designed.   I am flying on Sunday to the States and I want to be sure that everyone that comments is in the drawing so I will do the drawing on Monday and then post the winner on Tuesday.  (I will post the comment game winners for the week tomorrow as usual though) How does that sound?
To  recap today's card for you, I started with the background which was milk coloured card embossed using the Dainty Dots A4 size embossibility folder.  I inked the edges with Antique Linen distress ink and matted it on taupe card.  I cut the largest size of Decorative Labels 8 in taupe card as a backdrop for my focal element.  Next I stamped my sentiment on milk card and cut it out using the next size down in the same set.  I went down to the remaining two sizes in the set and cut a frame which I mounted on foam pieces over my sentiment.  Using the Krinkly Kraft paper (twistwrap kraft paper as it is also called), I cut several flowers from the Jewelled Flowers and Flourish set and layered them up and put pearls in the centres.  I cut another bunch of the flowers from milk coloured card and layered them up as well.  I arranged them around my focal element for a real girlie card.  I added some of the swirls from that set as accents.  I pierced the edges of a double milk coloured mat and added some pearls to the corners to finish it off.  I hope you like it!  Don't forget to leave me a comment today to be in for a chance at the anniversary drawing.  What do you say, should we try to make it every day for another year!!!!  All for now, Sue x

Wow a year of sending joy to lots of crafty friends. My cards have truly been transformed as a direct result of seeing your beautiful creations daily . You are such an inspiration to me and I look forward each day to checking out your magic. Besides the expensive ha of wanting what Sue has displayed, when I send cards back to the States the comments are, I should frame this card. Thanks Sue for making this choice to blog daily. Xxxx

auscrafts said...

well it looks like I'm the first to comment unless it takes me too long to write this .What I love about your blogg is all the different style of cards you make,plus the inspired use of the dies .I sometime look at the dies I have and wonder what to do with them especially the smaller ones.Some of the cards you make the colours aren't my favourites but I can look beyond that and see how the design can be addapted to suit the sort of card I need .I hope you do continue posting your lovely cards for the next year and the next and the .............

Rosie said...

Yes please, Sue. After yet another stunning card this morning (I really like the new A4 dots embossing folder) I would love another year of delightful inspiration.

Caroline said...

Hi Sue I don't comment very often but I just wanted to say I love your card's they truly are a work of art and give inspiration to many people so thankyou. Have a lovely time with your mum. Hugs Caroline xxx

Ginny said...

I have just discovered your blog (as in early this week!) Your cards are beautiful, and I love the way you use the different dies in unusual ways. I have added you to my Google Reader (which I prefer to being a follower) and am looking forward to seeing your creations every day!

Thanks for a cardtastic year. Please carry on for years and years. Every morning I look at your blog and I just want to start my card making instead of going to work! Have a safe journey and a great break in USA

Jenny L said...

Hi Sue,
congratulations on your Anniversary.
superb card as always.
I always feel my day has really started after gazing at your wonderful creations. Theres nothing like a Sue Wilson's card to brighten up a day. Apart from that you give us such fabulous inspiration too. To me it's my daily fix if you will excuse the expression.
My kindest regards to your family when you see them tomorrow.
May you have a very pleasant journey.
Have a wonderful crafty day.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Sandra said...

Wow l just love my Calibur now,it has been in the cupboard for a long time,since finding your blog l now have it out all the time,love your cards,whish l found you a year ado thank-you so much. Sandra

Vee Cassidy said...

Dear Sue, Congratulations on the milestone. It is a huge effort to post every single day; hard enough to put the pics on but you give a complete write up too.
What do I like most? It is never knowing what you are going to share next. The expectation is there that there will be a beautiful, original card every day but I never know if it is going to be a confection or decadent or a little bit grungy but I do know it is going to range from fab to awesome. There is no other blog I follow that makes me say "Oh My Goodness" or elicits ooohs and aaaahs or just takes my breath away.
Take care, enjoy your trip to the states, take good wishes from us to your family and come home soon.
Love, Vee xx
(I don't need to go in any draw as I have not been commenting so much recently as I once did owing to health issues but I do still open my email and see your cards. I just would not let your anniversary pass without comment.)

GM Sue - I think your blog is just fabulous - I started card making in Jan this year and discovered your blog about 6 months ago. For a week or two I just looked and then I plucked up the courage to comment - been hooked ever since! There's just so mchc variety, inspiration and tips - its truly wonderful. Please continue for another year with daily postings - or I might have to go into rehab. Wonder what's on Sue's blog today? is one of the first thoughts I have every morning. Thank you.

Good morning Sue. Thank you for the inspirations, Another lovely creation, I just wish I had more of these dies to play with, although it is fun to try and make the card with alternatives. Please keep them coming. Have a safe trip to the states. I shall be travelling through France back to England Sunday, lets hope its a good day.

Hi Sue. Happy anniversary on your year old every day Blog. Since watching your shows and following your Blog I have become a Spellbinders groupie. Your cards are an inspiration for me, I have tried to replicate many and it has cost me a fortune but it has been worth it because of the enjoyment I get from making cards and the wonderful comments I receive from the recipients.

Enjoy your visit with your mom and don't work too hard over in Florida but do bring some wonderful creations back.

Beautiful card as always. Love the flowers and how well the shades of cream and brown fit together.

Hugs from Finland, Eemeli

Your cards are wonderful and a true inspiration to me. I do hope you Continue blogging your cards for a long, long time. Thank you for your dedication x

Jani Lewis said...

Such a beautiful card!

val jones said...

Good Morning Sue. Another beautiful card. If it's one thing I've learnt from looking at your blog everyday is that I don't have to use my dies as they are. I can always snip a bit here or turn them a different way and they look totally different. So thankyou for unleashing my imagination and here's to many more years.

jucrook said...

Hi Sue. I look at your blog every morning although I don't always comment. Love the variety of cards that you share and aspire to make something one day that may be as good. Looking at the cards does however fuel my Spellbinders addiction - much to my family's disgust!!! Have a lovely time in the States, I am planning a hol there next year and am really excited about all the crafty stuff that I can sneak into my suitcase. Ju

Junotom said...

Hi sue, fab idea of yours to post your cards for us bloggers to follow. I look forward each day to see what inspiration you have to offer and I love the colours in today's card. I like the explanation you give for us to follow, it is so easy. I have been making cards for a few years now but bought my GC about 6 months ago and use it for all my card making now. Have a great time with your mum, and come home safe.
Bye for now

happy2craft said...

Good Morning Sue,
Todays card again, is gorgeous, love the colours and the layout, another really beautiful card.
I was scrolling through your blog the other night, the pictures of the cards are just so beautiful, they just get better and better as each day comes. The write up of each one is so clear and understandable, you can easily re-create one if you have the dies.
You know how I feel about your blog and your beautiful cards, so looking forward to another year of fabulous inspiration and beautiful works of art.
Have a safe trip Sunday, enjoy your stay with Mum, six weeks will seem quick, when we have your blog to follow every day.
Wishing you a lovely time.
Michelle (happy2craft)

Hi Sue, first of all thank you for taking that time out of your very busy schedule to post, your beautiful cards are invaluable keeping us inspired. Todays is a prime example. Best wishes for a safe journey and I hope you have a lovely time with your Mum.


Patricia said...

Good Morning Sue,
Yes! Yes! Yes! PLEASE!!!... keep them coming, I have loved every moment of the past year. First thing I do each morning is check your Blog Oh! My! Word! how would I get through the day without a look at your wonderful creations.
What would we do without your inspiration??? Every morning is a treat, might not always be 100% for me. I can look into your design and I can always see something that makes me want to make a card, in my style.
Have a great time with your family, I know you have lots of things to think about for the future, I just hope they all plan out as you want them to. Look forward to having you back on our screens filling us with enthusiasm
God Bless you and Yours.

Crafty Nanna said...

Morning Sue, stunning card as usual, I love the colours. I have only recently found your blog but do wish you happy first bloggy birthday and look forward to seeing the next year in with you. I get such inspiration from your cards and having been lucky enough to meet you know that you are so commited to your craft. Looking at your follower numbers it's such a shame we couldn't have got it to the 3700, only 6 more followers needed too!

HAve a safe trip and have a good weekend

Sylvia W said...

Hi Sue. I am a fairly new follower of your blog but really look forward to seeing what you have designed each morning. Makes me want to add to my spellbinders collection so I guess you are doing your job!! Hope you can keep giving us all the inspiration.

Marleine said...

Good morning Sue,
What a year it has been for both you and me. Your consistency of style ,colour and inspiration has been a help and guidance. Here's hoping you will continue.
Your card today is beautiful and puts me in mind of Victorian lace and style.
Wishing you all the best. X

Izzwizz said...

Congratulations on a fab year sue! Yes please, another year would be great! I love your blog. The different uses you come up with for the dies are great and so are all the details, but your lovely personality just shines through and that's what has kept me logging on every day! May there be many more. Have a good flight and enjoy your visit to the US. Maddy x

Nanny Jo said...

WOW!! Another inspiring card for us! Sue, I love to see your cards every day, your blog is the first thing I go to in the mornings. You see things in the dies that most of us would miss, and bring another dimension to our cardmaking. THANK YOU!!

Izzwizz said...

Ps I used one of your techniques and gave a link to your blog from mine yesterday. Hope that was ok. Xx

Tracie Carmody said...

Sue such a beautiful, stunning card. Love the colours, the layers, the flowers, everything.

Wow a year of posting cards everyday, that is no mean feat! I haven't been with you the whole year but probably half of it now. I do look every single day without fail. You have inspired me so much, in fact you have cost me a small fortune lol

Since seeing you on C&C,due to local card shop friends telling me about you and your stunning cards, I have definitely geared a lot of my cards around Spellbinder Dies. I have bought so many but of course still have lots to get

I haven't ever exactly copied a card but used your cards to inspire me. Even though I don't have a favourite because there are too many one that means the most to me is the one with candles. You may remember me emailing a picture of it to you as it inspired me to make a congratulations card for my boss when he got his Knighthood at the beginning of the year. You let me know about the crown etc that Spellbinders do which I have bought and plan to use to make a outer cover for a folder to put all of his congratulation letters in for a keepsake for his future generations. Well to get a Knighthood isn't an every day occurance. I will send you a picture once I get around to doing it, probably Christmas as he is going to collect at the Palace in December so would like to include some pictures of the day.

Anyway, thank you for dedicating so much of your time in posting the blogs everyday, I can appreciate how much time it would take.

Look forward to future inspiration and as mentioned before would love to see some using the d-lites if at all possible

Love and hugs, Tracie xxxx

Cdteach said...

Congratulations on an amazing year. I've looked in everyday for inspiration and the one thing I've learnt has been how versatile dies are and that they are not just what you first see and that there are more ways to use them.

Ab Fab Designs said...

Hi sue your cards are fab every day there is another stunning design . Enjoy your break Hugs xx

mags said...

A lovely card again today Sue. Well done on blogging every day for a year. Your cards are so inspiring. I love all the techniques that you bring to us and the wonderful variety of cards. Long may it continue.

baconbits said...

Good morning Sue,

Waht an amazing card, this has a very Victorian feel to it.
Well Happy Blogg Birthday, what an amazing year it has been. I have had great pleasure in looking in everyday to see the wonderful inspiration. The only problem that i have is "adjectives" i am running out of them.
Thank you for giving of your time to inspire so many people.
But the best bit about your blog is it makes me smile everyday.
Have a very safe journey and enjoy the time with your Mum.

Gail said...

Congratulations on your one year of blogging. I have been checking in to see your cards for most of the year , but I have only just started leaving a comment.
I love your blog because I know when I log on every day there will be a new card for me to view, I find it disappointing when I log onto other blogs and there is no new entry.
As for today's card it is beautiful, safe journey next week.

Desiree said...

Happy Anniversary Sue!
Thank you for giving us all so much pleasure over the last year. You have to carry on because otherwise clinics all over the country will have tidal wave of people with depression from withdrawal symptoms - your blog and my coffee are what I have to do first thing each morning!
What I love about your blog is the inspiration I get from your use of colour, texture and the way you combine your dies in 'out of the box' ways. You are also such a lovely, warm and generous person and I love watching you on C+C, especially when you are with your 'brother' Dean! Have a good time with your Mum. xx

Lin W said...

Because of you Sue I now use my dies so much more than I ever did before,you are such a insipration to me and everyone who see's your blog each and every day, PLEASE dont stop,we would all have to have to go through cold turkey without you.
Here's to the next year.

Have a wonderful time with your mum-Hugs xx Dawn S

Jenni Murphy said...

Hi Sue I have only been following you for a couple of months but since I became a follower I have looked at your blog daily. Your beautiful cards have given me so much inspiration and your tips have helped me to get more out of the dies. Look forward to another year of fabulous cards! Today's card is gorgeous, think I need to add that labels die to my ever growing list of things to buy at NEC!!
Have a great trip.

Sandra F said...

Wow Sue, A year of giving us lots of inspiration. The first thing I do when I switch my PC on in the morning is to have a look at your blog to see what you are showing us.
Todays card is stunning, I love everything about it.


Ladock girl said...

Happy Anniversary, for your card posting blog, and congratulations on achieving your resolution to post a card every day. Thank you for the chance to win some of your lovely dies Sue, you have been an inspiration to me since I found your blog after a comment you made on C & C along time ago, I have popped in every day and left a comment on your card. You have given me some lovely ideas and now all my cards are a la Sue, I look forward everyday to see what you have created next that I can have a go at. It's much better to see a finished item and adapt that to suit what you have, than to try and work from a sketch, but's that just my own opinion. Good luck for the future postings I shall be coming along as usual. Thank you once again Sue. xxx

Ecco of Sheffield said...

morning Sue
Although I have only been with you for eight months as I bought my GC then you and the machine, but mostly you, changed my craftig for life. I see your inspiration every morning - the different ways of using all sorts of mediums - the use of the dies (not only the obvious but even little ways that when I see you use them I think -now why didn't I see that!! - I have trawled through markets looking for non crafting items to use on my cards which I would never have done. So FROM ME TO YOU SUE THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THE LAST EIGHT MONTHS AND I CERTAINLY WILL BE WITH YOU FOR THE NEXT YEAR AND ONWARDS

Congratulations on a very successful year Sue! I am relatively new to the blog but have studiously gone through the archives to see how your style has developed. I've particularly liked your generosity - the way you are unfailingly giving of your creativity, letting us see how it should be done. Thank you - and please don't stop! Sue in Worcester

nmty said...

Hi Sue, all i can say is that since i started following your blog it has become a part of my daily routine, even on work days I always look at your blog in my lunch break. I love the fact that you showcase the dies and give us different designs every day, and you have really inspired me in my own card making, and I can honestly say that following your blog, and purchasing a GC, has changed the way i make my cards for the better.

Thank you and please keep up the good work!

I must say that i love today's card, what stunning flowers.

lydia jordan said...

Morning Sue,
Well what can I say that has not been said already. You are a true inspiration to us crafters and your blog is the first thing I look at each day. I have changed my cards so much since I have been following you so thank you. Yes I'm sure that we all hope you carry on blogging each day please.

The creation you have posted today is fantastic I love it all the flowers from the jewel set are so pretty, I love the ones made with the craft paper.

Enjoy your trip to see your mum and family.

Kim Patten said...

Congratulations Sue, I only discovered your blog recently although I have watched you on create craft for a long time. I love seeing your cards and its great to be able to study them at my leisure and read your tips and how you made them. I really enjoy the fact that you look at the dies and find different ways to use them which I would never have thought of. Thanks for the inspiration.

Crafty Lark said...

Good Morning Sue, I haven't been a blogger for very long but I am enjoying the way you look at a die and see something totally different - it may be a bit of a die so it extends how we can use them. Your cards always look special so keep them coming and have a safe journey. xx Flora

darcydaydream said...

congrats on your blog birthday. I've only been with you a few months but you have given me so much inspiration. I've since bought a Grand caliber and tons of dies and its taken my card making to a new level. so many thanks and hope to see you every day for many years to come......Christine....xx

lindyloo12 said...

Hi Sue Another lovely card!

Happy Anniversary, You should give yourself a big pat on the back for keeping to your resolution, especially with the busy life we all know you have. I just love your blog as it gives me a sense of anticipation every day when I log on, as to what colour or design your card will take. I also love it for all the hints and tips you are so generous to pass on to us all, and I know my own cards are more professional as a result. I never copy your cards but try to use your layouts in a different way or colour,and I watch you so much on TV and show my husband the cards you make each day that he now knows who you are! Because of you I don't have to tell him what present I would like for my birthday or Christmas as he knows very well I want the latest spellbinder's dies or a set of stamps you have used. Thank you so much for all your hard work!

Morning Sue,
First of ll, huge congrats and thanks, - what an achievement! Not just for managing to post a card but also for giving so much inspiration to so many people every day! I never watch C&C, but I do visit your blog almost everyday, even if I don't always leave a comment. I LOVE your posts though, the descriptions are always so clear (so thanks for that also, I know it's a lot of work), I get so much inspiration for how to combine dies and use them in different ways and I love the design elements on your cards even though my own style is very different. I admire your skills so much!!


There are so many things one can say about your cards; the visual impact using colour tones and dimension and of course the beautiful spellbinder dies. You give us all so much inspiration Sue which I look forward to seeing every day, so keep up the good work. Well done for the last twelve months.

Marion said...

Good morning Sue
Happy 1st Anniversary it's been a fabulous inspirational year. I have been with you the whole year and boy have you grown, every day you post a different card and every one has made me think out of the box. Thank you for all your hard work it is appreciated by us all. I struggle to try and find different things to say about your cards so I don't repeat myself lol. A cup of coffee and your blog is the highlight of my day, so here's to another year of inspiration from 'THE QUEEN OF SPELLBINDERS'.
Today's card is so pretty I love everything about it , have a brilliant time with your Mom and Heather and look forward to seeing you in December on C&C.

First thanks for a lovely card. Now about the last year, well its been bad for my bank account as i NEED so many dies, but it has been so good for me as I feel I have gained a crafting friend whose work I admire very much and who is so generous with her time and knowledge in creating a wonderful blog. Have a great trip to see your Mum.

Happy first anniversary Sue. This is a fab card and i love the colours and everything about it. I love following your blog as you give me so much inspiration, as you do to so many others. I try to check what card you've decided to show as soon as i get up for work. Even before i shower! It's sort of become a ritual for me and while i was in Turkey recently i'd check your blog from my phone! Admittedly i haven't liked all your completed cards but there are always some elements on them that i do like. Plus then, micro beads! These beads have become a must have for me in loads of different projects i've done. I'd love you to keep giving us the inspiration we need to use and adapt our spellbinders for many years to come. Hugs Sonia x

Hi Sue
Congratulations on your anniversary.
For me, it was seeing you on tv and loving your cards and style, wanting to try and emulate some of your magic on my cards. When i give a card now i get such wonderful feedback, which i put down to your inspiration. Thank you, please dont stop.
Have a good time in the USA.

Lovely card, love the colours you've used. Congratulations on reaching your year milestone, well done for blogging everyday. I have enjoyed each and every blog post you've done, I have been inspired so much by the cards you've done and have learnt a lot about using the dies in different ways.
Hope we have many more years of your lovely cards.

Happy Anniversary Sue. I just love your blog, I get so much inspiration from it. I print off a lot of your cards and dialogue and I have quite a collection now. And if my husband knew how many Spellbinders dies and embossing folders I have, he'd have a fit!
Keep up the brilliant work - here's to another wonderful year!
Have a great time in the USA.

Morning Sue, Happy Anniversary.
WOW oh WOW, just when I thought they couldn't get any better, THEY DID. This card is stunning, I love it so much, I can't wait to give it a try.
Have a safe journey to see your Mum.
Your Blog has been an inspiration to me, (as my imagination is not that good ha ha), you have shown me how to make my cards beautiful, and your Blog is my 'morning ritual', my 'morning 'fix'', please keep on inspiring all of us.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

nuttinanni said...

Congratulations Sue on your 1st Anniversary. Yes, let's go for another year or maybe more. I have certainly enjoyed your blog and the beautiful cards you have shared with us.I had been looking for a die machine and happened to see the launch on c&c of the Grand Calibur. By the time you were ready to demonstrate the first card, i was hooked, ordered it and have never looked back. It is almost never packed away, even my grandchildren love using it to make some shapes for art classes in school. Thank you so much. Enjoy your stay in USA and come back refreshed to show us more. Once again thank you for your inspiration. Safe Journey, cheryl

BridgetCG said...

Hi Sue, yet another beautiful card, love the colours on this. What I like most about your blog, is the inspiration. We may not have all the dies, but the way you combine different ones, put the cards together, the colour combinations, and using patterned papers. Who could fail to find inspiration to try something. I often go back over previous posts for ideas if I am looking for something specific. I actually feel like something is missing from my day if for some reason I cannot check your daily post. Please keep going, you bring beauty and a smile to the day. Bx

Mary at Doghouse said...

Morning Sue

As always another beautiful card yes please keep up the blog to give those of us who are not quite so gifted the inspiration to make some unusual and stunning cards. I know some of mine are not up to your standard but I have been happy with the results.

Sudha said...

Pretty sweet. Love the colors too.


Marianne's Craftroom said...

I also blog every day and when I am away schedule a post for every day without fail. It's a good practice I think and followers seem to lie it. I know I like your daily blogs as you make me look at using things in a different way. Your cards are very different to mine and I especially love the different ways you use the Spellbinders and the flowers, love that kraft paper.

Sandybee said...

Another beauty this morning Sue.

Congratulations on your first year of blogging.
I think we all get so much inspiration from your cards and if we get stuck for ideas we know there's help on your pages. So here's looking forward to the next twelve months

gwen70 said...

Yet another stunning card the colurs are really special. I think reading your blog everyday has really changed the way I look at different dies and all the wonderful inspiration you give us

kimberley said...

What is not to love about your blog Sue-an encyclopedia of the most brilliant designs and by the most amazing designer on the planet and all at my finger tips at the touch of a button.
the finished results are the most sought after cards{who would not love to receive a Sue Wilson inspired card} and your instructions for making the cards are so easy to follow and don't make me feel like a fool.
Also being able to kee up with your own day to day news snippets makes me feel as i am receiving a message from a friend-please don't ever stop doing it !!!!
By the way love today's card -i would feel priviledged if it was sent to me,take care and have a fab trip,give our best to your mum,x.

maxine h said...

Hi Sue
Wow a full year of listing cards on your blog, that deserves a massive pat on the back and just shows the immense dedication you have to your craft and to those of us who follow you.
I only found your blog recently but have watched you on C&C for a long time, I love the fact that I can now look at your cards whenever I need some inspiration (which is quite often lol) and i always always find what I'm looking for, so a massive THANK YOU to you.
Have a great trip to the states, but dont be away for too long, now you are a Brit!!
Big smiles, and hugs
Maxine :-))

Wishing you a wonderful time "over there".
Have a nice weekend too !
Love from Eva in Sweden

Anonymous said...

Sue your card today is just so me. I bought all these dies when you showed them on C&C and haven't stopped using them. I think they are so pretty and the flowers so versatile. Your blog is always my first port of call in the mornings and I can't wait to see what you have come up with - always something different and original. You are amazing. How lucky for someone to receive one of your cards - I shall be away for a few days (just in case I should be lucky enough to be picked!!) so look forward to seeing the lucky winner's name when I return. Have a lovely time with your mum, Yvonnexx

jayne denver said...

Hi sue
Happy anniversary the 1st is paper and seems fitting I think
Today's card is beautiful
You give me so much inspiration if I copy one of your cards or even put mt twist on it
I always get the wow factor from the recipient
I don't buy per made toppers I now make all my own
My spellbinder and stamp collection as now take. Over the craft room and my mind
My card making as really turned a few corners I always drop by your stall at shows and recorded your shows on c&c that I have had to put them on disc
I get your email every day and put that in a folder
I guess by now you can tell that I'm a big sue fan
Enjoy your time with your mum
We look forward to your return and all the delightful cards and shows
Thanks jayne

You have given all of us so much inspiration and help over the last year and it is brilliant to know that whenever we are stuck for an idea all we have to do is log on! Personally, I would also like to thank you for your help and advice on various things and you never cease to amaze me at how quickly you reply to emails. I'm sure that I speak for everyone when I say "thank you" and please keep going!

Good morning Sue, Happy 1st Anniversary.

Hope you have a lovely visit back home with your family.Have a safe journey. Hugs xx

JackieP said...

Hi Sue, One of the nicest cards I have seen, you give me so many ideas as I am not all that creative. Enjoy your trip to Americe and have a good time.

SusanP, Kent said...

Good morning Sue,
I LOVE your Blog! It has been my first port of call every day since I first 'discovered' it.
I would go so far as to say that I probably wouldn't have bought my GC without your daily inspiration: I wouldn't have had the confidence to begin! Even though I haven't come close to achieving anything that matches your skilful creations I'm learning all the time about design, colour combination and from your commentary and tutorials.
Thank you Sue, for your enthusiasm and generosity. I hope to be viewing your blog for another year and more. Have a great trip.

Cazann49 said...

Hi Sue, Today's card is STUNNING!!...I just want to say that ALL your cards are inspirational in one way or another. Whether it's the way you change the concept of using a particular die (Thinking outside the box, as you say) or sometimes it's just using stuff like the Cosmic Shimmer pearlescent glue to make "Pearls". Please continue posting every day, because for someone like me, who is mainly bedridden,it is a joy to come on your page each day and see your stunning creations..I may not be well enough to comment each day, but I love clicking on your blog and seeing what you've created! (And then when well enough, using your ideas on my own cards)..Have a great day..:)Lots of love Carole..xx

Nanna Tina said...

Hi Sue
I have loved reading your blog and have gone back and read previous blogs as only been reading for a few months so it has been an enjoyable journey through your card making and the variety of cards you have to show us and the detailed description of each one.
My cards have come along way since seeing you on C&C and reading your blog and the compliments you have made on my cards from the pictures I have sent to you so I send you a HUGE thank you for it all, and I am looking forward to all the years ahead.
I hope that you have a safe journey to the states and you have a great time with your family.
Happy crafting
Love Tina x

Mandy said...

Hello Sue
Such a lovely card. I have only recently discovered your site and spent a whole day browsing through all your posts! The cards are stunning and the tutorials really good. It certainly gave me some great ideas for creating a card for my other half, he was really pleased with the end result, so much so that the card is still on display over a week after his birthday (all bought cards removed after the day by him). I look forward to seeing the next 365 cards.

Marianna Hammer said...

Happy first anniversary!!! What I like the most about your blog? Oh there are so many things that I like. I like the constant inspiration, the blog gives me. It makes me happy just to sit and watch your beautiful cards. But also in a way you have become a personal friend of mine. Tho' we don't know each other, you've become like family. Family that I visit almost every day. I hope I get the chance to visit you each day in the coming years. Thank you for always writing such an entertaining blog. Please do continue with it.
And today's card is just beautiful :)

Kathy said...

It's been great to be part of this blog for this past year. Your inspiration seems never-ending and you use the dies in ways I would never have dreamed of. It's not difficult to see why this is the No 1 'turn-to' blog, not just whe I want ideas for a 'special' card but every day - just to see what else you've come up with! TY Kathy x

Hi Sue, it's us that should be saying thank you, thank you for the inspiration you give. If the cards you make are not quite to our taste at least we can adapt them. I didn't know it was possible to make such beautiful cards until I found your blog after seeing you on C&C. So please carry on with you blog and once again thank you.

Thelma said...

Sue, I have only just started following your blog. I have seen so many of your lovely creations on C&C and was frustrated at needing longer to look. For some reason it's taken a long time for the lightbulb moment to happen and start following. Never mind I'm here now and I can gaze to my hearts content before going and having a bash on my own. Thank you so much for all the inspiration.

Sue, i follow your blog every day, and have often watched you on TV in awe, wondering how i would ever be able to achieve anything similar, but through your blog I have been able to go back and revisit the cards, and create something similar to you. But i am greedy I also love your blog for the sneeky peeks you give us of upcoming spellbinders shows, which have inspired me to buy the dies and goodies to bring them to life. Thank you for giving us this chance to see your amazing creations x

You give so much inspiration to everyone; the comments left daily on your blog are proof of that. You are so generous when you share your masterpieces and tips what would we do without them. Before I make any cards I always look over your beautiful creations for inspiration first. Today’s card is gorgeous and shows off your amazing talent beautifully.

Congratulations Sue! As a relatively new spellbinder I am amazed by your results and very thankful that you take the time to explain your process. I love your micro beads obsession and would join you if they are ever actually in stock anywhere!

Thank you for all your inspiration,

Recently found this site what beautiful cards. New to card making so will have to purchase the dies that you are using.

Vie Carter said...

Of course we want another year please, your daily blog is so great

Today's card must go on my list of fav's - it is just my sort of card

Before I met you I never considered using a paper flower, now after having several of your flowers from Ally Pally, I rarely make a card without a flower

The composition and colour combo is wonderful

At present I am in the process of moving, and your blog takes some of the daily 'stress of it away'

Thank you again Sue

Hi Sue,
Congratulations on a wonderful year. How lovely to bring so much beauty and inspiration into so many lives. Like the others, I look forward to your daily posts. It's a special treat. The thing I like most is your reliability. Another year? Oh yes please! We know it takes time and planning but it's appreciated so, so much.
Today's card is wonderful. It's going to the top of my list of favourites - and there are a lot of favourites!
Have a safe journey and a lovely time with your family,
Sue xx

Bravo for posting for a year and defo continue for another year cos I would really miss it - you have made me look at my spellbinders in a different way and given me the confidence to miss and match dies which I probably wouldn't have done if not for watching you on C&C and on your blog -Thanks a lot - Gailxx

Your blog is one of the first things I check every day, and I'd like to say a big "thank you" for all the beautiful cards you showcase. I most enjoy the way you show different ways of using the dies, spreading their use and getting so much more out of them.

Please keep blogging - I for one would miss you very much!

Sue, thank you so much for a wonderful year of inspiration. Although I don't get the chance to leave comments as often as I would like, I do see your email each day and your cards are really fantastic. I look forward to 356 new cards in the coming year!!!

Hi Sue,
I have been following your blog for most of this year and what i really look forward to is the detailed explanation of how you put together each card. I may not have the exact dies or embossing folders but your creations give me a starting point. I started off making copies of cards you made but now I can add my own ideas and it gives me confidence knowing that my finished card is going to have a Sue Wilson flavour to it. What I would quite like to see though is some smaller cards as the larger cards are more expensive to post. I know I could down-scale but sometimes I am unsure if I have 'finished' my card or if I have added too much so it would be interesting to see what you come up with.

Thank you so much for giving up so much of your time to post each day. I am sure there have been some days when you truly have been too tired.

Have a good weekend. Look forward to your next show!

Sue X

Don't ever give up your blog! Not only do I read it every day but as I only found it about January this year I use your menu as a reference when I make a card I look to see 'what Sue has made for that occasion' and use it for inspiration. I have copied your cards and it has made me a better crafter because it has opened my eyes to new ideas. I look forward to my break at work when I can look at the days post and then I can dream my way though a day I might not enjoy with what I might make next. Thank you for all the pleasure you bring xx

I've ben following you since you first mentioned the blog on C & C and it the first place I visit every day. I love seeing your creations (especially your sneak peeks), but I also like to hear the family news you share with us- your trip to Paris with your daughter, the photos from the C & C cruise and CHA, your daughter's new arrival and how your mum is doing. Thanks for sharing your ideas and thanks also for sharing such personal information with us.

Good morning Sue. When I started reading your blog I thought oh no! She's going to stop - what shall I do? Every day you inspire me, you cheer me up if the weather's bad and I feel you have become a friend even though we've never met. Thank you for all that as well as the lovely cards you manage to make each day. Have a great trip and please do keep these masterpieces coming. xx

Birdie said...

Congratulations Sue on a job well done for the past year. It is a daily ritual for me to check your blog. I have been waiting in hope that you would post this particular card as I only got a glimpse of it on C & C and I just love it. It is such an elegant card and fitting for your anniversary. Thank you so much for your inspiration and YES if you can possibly manage it, do please continue your daily blog. You have given such inspiration to our crafting world.
Thank you and take care.

Looking forward to year two Sue, I have enjoyed your daily blog for all the inspiration of how to use dies thinking outside of the box. I have your blog pinned on my taskbar so its one of my first daily visits. So thank you for all your hard work and all the beautiful cards and products you bring us. Have a Wonderful time with your Mum and Family. Linda xx

Absolutely love that you inspire me and get me off my bum and into my craft room. Sometimes you cost me money as I 'just have to have it'. Now I'm needing the dots folder in this card! Also love the colours you use, gets me out of my comfort zone :0)

Hi Sue - I am in the midst of making a white on white holdiay tree card, copied from yours of course. I am all at sixes and sevens today - my grand calibur is rattling I think there is something loose inside, and my favourite die set is up for a lucky winner. Should I be worried or excited?? Keep posting Sue you make such wonderful cards and inspire us all. Liz

ang said...

beautiful card, wow I did not realise you have only been daily posting for a year,really glad I found you. What I love is firstly that you post daily and I can always check your blog before I go to work. Next your cards are always stunning and I love how you are so generous with your time, and tell us mere mortals exactly how you have made the card, with great hints and tips, so we to can hope to achieve such beauty. Hope you can manage to keep up with the daily inspiration hugs angxxxxx

Jackie Calvert said...

Hi Sue. Do I want another year of your blogs and demo's...Yes, yes, yes PLEASE. Your cards are inspirational, keeping me glued to your blog, and are also one of the few things that make me watch C&C, as I enjoy watching as well. This card is no exception, colour and design right up my street.
Thank you for all your help earlier this year, you are a true star.
Enjoy being at home for a while

Joan Donaldson said...

Hi Sue, I love your blog I get so much inspiration from it. You use dies in so many ways I would never have thought of, and you are so kind to allow us to copy your designs. I would like to say a BIG BIG THANK YOU for taking the time to blog everyday.

Hi Sue
your card (as always) is beautiful, I am now going to have to ask Father Christmas for this set of dies.
You want to know what I enjoy most about your blog, WHERE do I start, I love the inspiration you give in bucket loads, I love that you encourage (and show in such great detail), how to use the dies in different ways, thus expanding the range I am able to use them for, this is great for me (and I'm sure many other's) who have to watch the pennies. Thank's to you showing us how to, I am now able to make a square?rectangle/other shape's larger/smaller.
I do hope you continue with your daily blog, it brighten's my day no end when I visit your blog, & very often it wake's my very lazy mojo up (which keeps disagreeing) lol.
Hope you have a lovely time in America, you will be missed on Create & Craft. I love your demo's & as much as the other's are very good none compare to your demoing skills.
Sandra (craftynan)
