Life Is Better With You In It

 Hi guys! That is how I feel about all of you!  I never thought that I would enjoy blogging near as much as I actually do, but I really enjoy the connection that I feel with crafters through my blog. This card is dedicated to all of you!  Probably a bit corny, but it's life and you just have to have a bit of corny once in awhile, don't you!  I started this card by stamping the rye grass flourish all the way around the outside edge of some coconut white card using a clear perfect medium pad.  I heat embossed it with white powder for a tonal look.  Next I picked a piece of decorative paper I had that has little metallic butterflies all over it in a deep aqua green (I struggled to get the colour to come out in the pic).  I cut four of the Timeless Amour pieces (the abstract heart die in the set) in white.  I interlocked the curly bits on the sides and glued them to my background paper.  They make a pretty pattern in the very centre I think.  Next I cut four of the lacy heart from the Timeless Amour set, I used just the lacy edge for the card and set the four inside hearts aside for a later project. I folded each of the lacy edge pieces in half and glued them back to back using the Cosmic Shimmer dries clear glue.  I then glued the back halves to the card over my white pieces.  These will fold flat to mail, but are 3 dimensional once the recipient takes the card from its envelope.  I stamped a sentiment and cut it out with the fancy tags two die.  I inked through the die lightly with Bundled Sage distress ink.  I mounted it with foam to the bottom of the card.  I cut a double white mat for my card and used the Cosmic Shimmer white PVA glue to create dots all the way around the edge to complete the card.  Finished dimensions are
7 1/2" x 7 1/2" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Morning Sue, a beautiful card and the colours
are fabulous together as the others
have said we feel the same about the
sentiment about YOU. I don;t think
you realise how much your blog
means to us with all your inspiration
we would not be the crafters we
are without you.

Marion Bull said...

I agree with the earlier comments, life is better with YOU in it. Thank you for another brilliant card and for yet another inspirational morning! xx

Heather said...

Hi Sue

Well I agree with Pam it is a two way thing life is a lot better with you in it too! :)

The card is lovely. i love cards that have things that are 3D on them as you don't get many of those in the shops and so that makes them very different. Really nice.

I love this card, it's stunning. The backgrounds are equally as beautiful and the intricate dies. I love visiting your blog daily, not just for the inspiration but it brightens up the day and puts me in a cheerful mood. Hope you are enjoying yourself and having a rest.

Good morning Sue, you have made me feel very emotional with this one because you are the one who makes my life better for being in it. You have given me encouragement and support in the past and for that I am so truly thankful. This is an amazing card, thank you.

Good morning Sue
Life is certainly better with you in it, you not only give every one your time there's always support when needed. When I had the amour (or armour as you first thought lol) set of dies, I never knew what to do with this die but you have given me so many ideas so thanks for that. Love today's card it's beautiful.

Hayley Johnson said...

Hi Sue, I wish I knew where your inspiration comes from! Thanks to your blog though we all get a daily dose of your talents and just as the other bloggers have said my life is better with you in it! I hadnt made many visits to my craft room until you were back on C&C (and i found your blog) and now I've absolutely got the bug again and ideas pop into my head all the time - that's thanks to you because you encourage us to look at things differently and not to just use dies one way! Thank you Sue and much love.

GM Sue - and my card making has improved no end since I discovered you and your blog - so thanks. Love the coloured butterfly paper -so delicate. Lovin the 3D heart - not sure about the white interlocking hearts though for some reason....

Good morning gorgeous Sue and gorgeous bloggers. Wo OUTSTANDING card, really packs a punch. Thankyou for the heartfelt sentiment, really touching.

Glad I made you laugh yesterday. Thanks for sunshine x love Danella xxx

maxine h said...

Loving todays card Sue. I love the background stamp that you have used it gives a lovely texture and depth but embossed in white it doesn't "interfere" with the card and make it look too busy. I'm gonna get my white embossing powder out and have a play now instead of using embossing folders all the time for my backgrounds. Thanks Sue for your unlimited inspiration
Love and hugs

Alice G said...

Right back at you Sue, you are soooo loved by all us bloggers, it is strange how much we feel connected. I was thinking about that when you talked about ally pally & how much I envied the folk who had the chance to meet you. I'd want to give you a great big hug & tell you how much your blog meant to me too, but it's more than that. YOU have touched our hearts in ways that are unexplainable but wonderful just the same.

You have brought us another amazing card, it's truly beautiful Sue. I made the dimensional bit as part if my valentine card to my husband but have to confess he wouldn't have known to open it out if I hadn't shown him so guess it would get a bit lost on the recipient unless we put in a little note explaining what to do. (I'd hate all that work to go unnoticed after you had taken the trouble to create that element!!)

Hugs

Jane said...

Blogging is such fun isn't it Sue. I really enjoy seeing all your wonderful cards which you share every day. That sentiment is so sweet, you are a very warm generous crafter. Today's card is stunning a great start to a glorious sunny day here in Surrey. Enjoy your weekend, hugs x

Another great card Sue and I love the way you have done the hearts. The sentiment could come from all of us - it was a special moment when I met you at Ally Pally and it's no wonder the queues were stretching around other stands as you truly inspire so many people with your talents. Your warmth and sunny disposition is boundless and it's a pleasure to have you in our lives. YvonneMayxx

Oh what a beautiful card - I love the colour scheme and surely these dies have to be one of the biggest hits. I have not as yet tried mine but after this morning's delight I shall. Each and everyone of us needs some romance in our lives and this fits the bill nicely. Thank you for starting my day with this beautiful thought.

I thank you so much for that. Take care.

Teresa Skipper said...

Hi Sue
There is nothing corny about craft and crafty friends. I've often read that people throw themselves into their crafting when they are low in spirit for whatever reason. I now know what they mean. My husband died at the end of February after three weeks previously being told that he had 2-3 months to live. I was stunned at the speed of it all and my crafting took a very back seat. My friend who owns my local craft shop (my lifeline) invited me to a copic colouring class. It was just what I needed to get going again - talking craft with like minded people. Nothing in this world would bring my husband back but my family and my friends are keeping me going. And so do YOU. I love your blog and the cards you make. Sorry this comment is so long but I just felt I could open my heart to you when I saw your lovely card this morning. Thank you.
Love from Teresa x

alimecca said...

Hi Sue
What a lovely sentiment and can truthfully say that it is reciprocated- you are a very thoughtful and lovely person who is a true inspiration to us all. Today's card is lovely - it really stood out when it was shown on C&C. The colours are gorgeous and the heart is stunning.

Hi Sue,
What can I say that hasn't already been said by everyone else - you are one very special person in our lives. Love the card although I'm not a 'heart' kind of person. Would like Teresa to know that she is in my thoughts (as is everyone else) who is going through a difficult time but finding comfort and solace from crafting.
Love to all

Hi Sue, thank you for dedicating this beautiful card to us all...same back to you for all your wonderful inspiration. I bought my GC when you first brought it to C&C, which seems an age ago now and I have been following your blog ever since..there weren't so many of us back then! Thank you for your artistic inspiration, for bringing spellbinders to us and for inspiring me to start my own blog, almost 2 years ago now! Hugs, Carole Z XX

Sizzix Lady said...

Want to hear more corn? I left Ally Pally al hot and bothered feeling really disgruntled because all those other 'pushy people' were keeping us apart. I am quiet and reserved and find it difficult to have the umf necessary to get to the front to talk to you on these occasions. it has happened before. I often read your blog in bed before I get up in the morning, so as you and I have been in my bedroom I feel that we are close friends ( no smut intended)- so why were all these other people keeping me away from my friend????? I love everything that you write. ~I admire and respect your skill as a crafter and designer, and am eternally grateful that you have so much generosity to share your beautiful ideas, and am daily inspired by what you share. Thank you, thank you , thank you. have a blessed weekend and I look forward to many more blogs of inspiration. Forgive me, but it had to be said.

Sending you a huge hug Teresa, a lot of us use crafting as a therapy, it's just nice to be able to get lost in something, mainly to fill those empty voids of time where you feel down and the more time you sit thinking the worse you feel! Feel free to message or post when you are having those moments, this blog is like an extended 'family' and more of us than you think are going through something similar! Hugs, Sandra xx

hollyberry said...

Think that the card is beautiful.As for the sentiment and your words-if they are heartfelt and truly meant then nothing is "corny".As others have said we reciprocate the feelings but as far as I'm concerned not just for the craft inspiration, for your take on life and being you-thank you.

Lovely card Sue and lovely sentiment!
Don't know where I would be without my daily Sue Wilson therapy!
Thank you for all you do Sue, you are one of life's 'beautiful people' ! So warm and giving , always going that extra mile to help people, I noticed at Ally Pally the amount of people that were coming to you for help and advice, with broken parts etc! You must have been exhausted but you just kept going, with a smile too!
I think it was Val that mentioned how your list of followers has grown, from way back when there were only a few comments to read through, now there a hundreds!
Have a relaxing weekend Sue

Good morning Sue,
Its us crafters and followers of your blog that have this feeling about you. You inspire us when our imagination has gone on holiday or a day off.

But another cracker of a card again today.

Lis Kervill said...

Hi Sue,
What better to express LOVE than a HEART, but when a sentiment like this comes with it, your genuine warmth and sincerity speak louder than words -
Sue Wilson personified.
You do it, day after day, and we feed from it, day after day.
Such is the inspiration that we gain that compels all your followers to write such lovely comments in answer to your warmth.
You simply set us up for the day, ready for whatever it brings.
You are one lovely lady!
I often think of your Mom and how she must miss your smiling face in her everyday life. Give her a big hug from me, please.
Thank you for all that you are to us.
With my Love,
Lis x

sued99 said...

What a pretty card. I feel the same about you and your blog.

Tres said...

To Teresa Skipper. I am so sorry to hear of your sad loss. I think we all loose ourselves in crafting when life becomes so difficult. I lost my Auntie from cancer recently. Then less than 3 weeks later I lost my Nan on Mother's Day. It has been a terrible few weeks. Please know you are in my thoughts and prayers. Lots of love and best wishes to you, from Tres x x x

SusanP, Kent said...

Hi Sue,
Right back at ya, as they say! Nothing wrong with a bit of corn either! I for one, would never have got into Spellbinders without your inspiration. I still don't do as much crafting as I would like and there are ALWAYS more dies that I 'need', but your amazing creations are just a few clicks away when I need an idea.
Almost forgot to comment on the card - Wow, it's gorgeous. Love the colour/design of the decorative paper and the pattern created by the hearts. The lacy hearts feature is really pretty and the design would work well in other colours for Valentine or anniversary cards.

salem said...

wooooow card , thanks to you sue !!

Pat L said...

Hi Sue
Stunning card and as for the sentiment it is reciprocated, you give us such inspiration every day with your beautiful cards.

redfox said...

WOW this card is yet another beauty. I'm still amazed how you manage to come up with so many incrediable designs. Although having the spellbinders dies helps i'm sure! Nothing wrong with corny! And long may you continue to blog as we love it!! sarah

Tres said...

Hi Sue. Your card for today is wonderful. Love the colour combo and your white on white embossing. I am not to keen on the interlocking dies in white but I love the heart dies and sentiment. Thank you for dedicating the card to us crafters. I am really touched. I definitely know that my life is much better with you in it. When I was diagnosed with this illness I thought Psychologically that I would go under. I found the c+c channel and started making some cards. Then I found Spellbinders and you !! Now you are in my life every day and I really love all your beautiful cards and your kindness and generosity. When I met you at Alley Palley. For the first time the other week I was just so excited and happy. You made my year. I finally got to meet my crafty hero !! You are a truly genuine wonderful person. I had my photo taken with you and I will treasure it for the rest of my life !! We all need someone to keep us going and you still continue to help me through the good times and the bad times. Sending you much love and best wishes from Tres x x x

cmu said...

Hi Sue, What a beautiful card with a sentiment to match , I like many other of your other bloggers have never met you in person but we feel we know you through this blog! You are so generous with your time and your creations which on its own must take up a lot of your spare time as well as working for spellbinders and shows on create and craft. You are one special, generous lady! Enjoy your time with your mom and daughter they must be so proud to have such a caring daughter/ mom .

Love this card and what a great idea for the background piece. How do you manage to think of these things and what would we do without your inspiration.
Thanks and regards

Dear Sue
Thankyou for such a wonderful card and a beautiful sentiment. I love the embossed background and the 3d hearts and the interlocking hearts look so different like that and make a great backdrop for the 3d ones. I love teal and white together too my favourite combination of colours.
If only you knew how much I look forward to your blog each day it makes getting up each day worth it for me especially as I'm down at the moment.
You are truly inspiring and I wish I was as creative and amazing as you are.
Thank you and best wishes from katielou x

Hi Sue, great colours and love the stamped white embossing powder, as for your comments life is better with you in it, i can say that is how i feel about you as a friend of mine died last year and she loved my cards and i always wanted to show her my new ideas, when she died suddenly i no longer wanted to craft, then i found you and i loved your cards and wanted to craft again so thank you for inspiring me again and getting me back in my craft room i just wished my friend could see our cards, so a big thank-you to you, x sam
