Thank You For Lifting My Spirit

 Hi bloggers!  The sentiment is a bit appropriate for me today because our internet has been down for over 24 hours!  I feel like I am going through withdrawals!  What DID we ever do before it came along! LOL   I have had to take my computer out to find a hotspot to update my blog!  Today's card is a sort of clean and simple style (if you ignore my ginormous bow!)  I started by embossing my white background piece using the Splendid embossibility folder.  I used the Scallop Borders to create the black border under my sentiment.  I used the scalloped edge and then the plain cutting edge for the other side.  I adding in the same scalloped die piece in the centre to emboss the design.  It was done in two steps.  I stamped the Vine Scroll Stamp To Die For in black on red card.  I cut it out with the matching Labels 30 die.  I stamped my sentiment on white card and cut it out with a smaller Labels 30 die.  I used Black Soot Distress ink to lightly ink it while it was still in the die.  I mounted it with foam in the centre of my focal element.  I had some beautiful red ribbon (from my stash) so I tied a double bow and added a black Dazzler in the centre.  I added a thin black mat before finishing with a double white mat with a pierced inner layer.  I will schedule a few more posts in case my internet decides to stay on holiday!  Finished dimensions are 7" x 8 1/2" in size.    Just thought I would give you a quick reminder that Julia Watts has two shows on C & C today at 8am and 3pm.  Be sure to tune in to see what she has in store for you!    I am flying home today so I won't be able to answer emails until late tomorrow, just to let you know.  Please behave yourself Blogger and put my scheduled blog post up on time! LOL   All for now, Sue x

Good morning Sue,
This is a real wow card! A different sentiment and it could be used as a rememberance card, the bow reminded me of a poppy.

Give your mum a big hug, her loss is our gain.

Morning Sue, A beautiful card today, as always.
Isn't it awful when you can't get the internet, I had two days at the weekend where I couldn't get onto the internet, in the end I had to re-boot my box and also pull the batteries out of my laptop ha ha, technology is great when it works, an absolute pain when it doesn't ha ha !!
Have a safe journey back home, please bring some sunshine back with you, Sue.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Norah McPhee said...

Good morning Sue,
I love the big red bow, but there again i was/am a red shoes girl. What a beautiful simple card, that apart from the bow is understated elegance. These new borders are so versatile because at first glance of the actual dies you think " how many think is a card edge (lengthways) that small?" But i think you have used it every way bar the edge of a very short card... clever you.
Take care coming home,
Love and crafty hugs
Norah x

Victoria said...

Super card Sue, sorry you were minus your internet. I went 3 days recently without it, and it felt as bad as a power cut. Sitting here watching Julia on the TV. so what more could I ask for.

Pat S Witney said...

hi Sue
Another stunning card today. Love the red,white and black together. Have a safe journey back, and could you please pack some sunshine in your suitcase. Glad your back online again.

hotpotato said...

safe journey home. Now watching Julia on C&C.

Ecco of Sheffield said...

morning Sue
What a beautiful gift for today. As soon as I saw it it reminded me of '11 Nov. Remembrance Day' and would be very appropriate for that and in fact for 29 June as it is 'Armed Forces Day' here in the UK. Having a contact with the forces this means a lot to me.
I love the colour scheme. Red/Blk/white always make a statement and shout 'I am here'. The format is very regal.
Hope you have a safe and smooth journey back. I am sure there will be lots of tears but you all have the wonderful memories.
Janet x

karenlotty said...

SusanP, Kent said...

Sumptuous is the word for today's card. Even though you say 'simple' it's your choice of colours and that MAGNIFICENT bow adds that lavish look. I'm just beginning to see the 'value' of the Stamps To Die For range and have bought one that matches labels 22 to have a bit of a play.
Safe journey Sue. Shame we have to wait over a week for your next show. I've definitely been having withdrawal symptoms.

Hi Sue and hello everyone! I'm getting a very Ooo La La feel about this one! Maybe it is the colours which are very chic and "lacy" together. It's gorgeous Sue and so loving the bow! It's big but overall it suits the card wonderfully. Lovely! I hope you've had a wonderful time with your mom and the family and that you're having a smooth flight back. It will be great seeing you on the screens again, although it must have been hard to say goodbye again to her.... Unfortunately missed Julia today but they do repeat some of the shows. How scary is it that we rely on technology so much. How did we go on without it.....? Mmmmmm. Anyway Sue, take care and see you soon! xx Love Karen xx
