Love You

Hello my crafty friends!  A little cream and black number for today's card.  I personally adore this colour combination as it just looks so elegant.  I started with a piece of milk card that I embossed with the Garden Lattice embossibility folder.  I matted it with a thin black layer for emphasis.  I used the Filigree Corner dies by Becca Feeken and cut two of them in milk card for the upper corners.  I wrapped a piece of cream coloured satin edged ribbon around the card down the centre and taped the ends to the back.  Using the Lacey Tier die set (also by Becca Feeken), I cut two of the circles out out milk coloured card.  I cut a black piece to go behind them using the classic circle dies.  I made a rosette using these by scoring lines across both of them in equal increments.  I cut to the centre and folded them concertina style and did this to both of them.  I glued the two pieces together to form the rosette and attached it in the middle of my card as my focal element.  I used the Samantha Walker Delicate Doilie dies to cut a smaller centre piece and finished it with a flatback  pearl.  I tied a double bow and added it with glue dots below my rosette with a pretty cameo for the centre.  I stamped my sentiment on a tag and edged it with Antique Linen distress ink.  I tucked the edge of the tag under the cameo.  The card was then completed by adding a double pierced mat layer out of milk coloured card.  Finished dimensions are 7 1/2" x 8 1/2" in size.
I just wanted to let you know that I am still pondering something fun to do on Mondays.  I have a few ideas, but no final decisions yet.  I want it to be something really good though so it could take a bit of time.

I am coming up on another exciting milestone too in my blog journey.  My blog is about to click over the      4 million mark (that's a lot of zeros!) in it's counter at the very bottom of the blog (at least as of this writing, it may have even gotten there by now, who knows!)   That is pretty exciting for me and a bit amazing too as never in my wildest did I imagine that sort of readership.  Thank you so much for your daily visits, you have no idea what that means to me!  You're the best, LOVE YOU, just like the card says!   All for now, Sue x

A BIG world wide round of applause for our crafting hero on so many followers, CONGRATULATIONS Sue from ALL your Wilsonettes what a woman ! Like other Wilsonettes, my morning starts bt tuning my phone into the wifi to tap into this amazing world of Wilson and everyday my morning starts with the most magnificent, stunning work, how do we thank you for brightening our days ? By being here for YOU like you are for US. Here's to the next million, I raise my coffee cup to you : )

This card has blown me away. I too love the colour scheme. I adore every element of this card, and if I was lucky enough to ever receive a card from anyone with this much excellence it would be framed and on show. I dont know how you can fall in love with a card, but I just did !!! Maybe if I could replicate any of your cards Sue Id not feel so anxious over competition at farmers markets but I cant, and I do ! Sooo much card crafting competition out there now !

Talking of which, another busy day making cards ready for the next market on Sunday with SO much to do (if ONLY people realised how much time and love goes into just 1 card) then maybe they would appreciate what we do, we DONT play, we all work so hard at perfection.

Sending Monday smiles and hugs to our wonderful Sue and all you lovely Wilsonettes.

Well done on your 4 million views but I think you deserve every one of them as I'm sure everyone agrees. We are honoured to be able to visit such an interesting and inspirational blog every day. Gorgeous card AGAIN!!! Love all the ideas you give us

This is absolutely stunning Sue, many congratulations on the 4 million x

Ruth said...

Hi Sue - I love your blog and am not surprised that you have so many followers. A while ago you were looking for ideas for Mondays, please, please can we have a card using some of the older (and familiar) dies in our collections? Sometimes I get a bit stale and it would be great to see new ideas using older dies which are still readily available. I'm looking forward to my 'fix' again tomorrow to see what you come up with!!

Gail said...

This card is utterly beautiful in its simplicity and elegance.
I have never checked the counter, I just have though and it is impressive!! Nearly there at 4 million, what an amazing number and so well deserved! I would be lost without your blog, like many of us!
Looking forward to what you come up with for Mondays - bet it will be fantastic. I have given it a lot of thought but can't think of anything...
Happy week
Hugs Annie
