Morrrrning Sue. Moooorning Wilsonettes. Just sitting with feet up, quietly on the sofa trying to breath properly and get a proper heart rythem - that doesn't look right ! Waiting to get my heart beat back to normal ! Just give me a minute..... Ok, got some fresh air (it's either very foggy out there or I need my specs) !

Need to watch tutorial then as Arnie said "I'll be back"

Oh. My. Goooodness. Im still breathless over this magnificent W.O.W.- Wonder Of Wilson. How can a card be plain but full of beauty, that's why I call each card we are lucky enough to see, WOW's as they are full of Wilson Wow.
Id give the earth to own each die, and stamp used to make this card, but all I have is black and white card, a clear ink pad and black embossing powder, oh and white (which needs replacing) so - Im thinking crime, only option Im afraid, a bank job, yeah thats it, then I can blame my meds, "didnt know what I was doing officer" I just need and want to make this for my family and hospital consultant (if I give him a card like that he wont do anything nasty to me and I can bribe him with NO more nice cards) lol : )

I love Margaret's idea about the base card - how about Monday's being 'Start from Scratch' day Sue for new crafter's ?
Enjoy your re-enstated craft room Sarah. Patty, how I chuckled when I read your post (without glasses) I have done exactly that and almost got arrested lol.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY HEATHER T. how does 2pm sound for a room full of crazy Wilsonettes for cake - I said CAKE, cake n craft ?

Sue - HAPPY THANKSGIVING. May you have a day full of happiness, fun and family (NO crafting) today !

Why live in UK when Florida is home, thought I was crazy but after a family holiday in the 90's there with the warmth all year round I know where Id rather be !

To all my fellow Wilsonettes, take care have a great day, eat CAKE and wear your glasses.
Hugs all round.

marg said...

Good morning Sue!
I hope Thanksgiving goes well with all the family together!
The only service here is Harvest Festival.. when people take "Fruits of the Land" to church, to thank God for the Harvest! that is then given to people who need it!
That was when people went to church....I don't know what happens now!
Anyway getting sidetracked.. I haven't yet watched the video but I love the Justrite Poinsetttia stamp so I know I will love the card.
Take care Sue! and have a lovely
day
Love Marg

Jean Deane said...

Ecco of Sheffield said...

Morning Sue
A very Happy Thanksgiving to you and all your family.
Today's gift is certainly 'posh' as you say.
The format is so simple it certainly goes into my 'less is more' file and I'm sure I shall find myself using your format for some of my C.cards which I still have to make.
Today is Christmas Cake baking and then back to finishing off the last of my cards for this year.

Totally fab-u-lous video and card - thank you, Sue. Don't often see you use vellum, and it's perfect here.

Sam Smithard said...

Morning Sue,
First I would like to say "Happy Thanksgiving"
How can I follow the Fantastic Comments from Lancashire Steph.
Today's Card is "Truly Awesome" I really love the Monochromatic Look it is just so Classy and Opulent looking, can you imagine opening such a Beautiful Card I'd have the tissues by my side, as everything about it I just Love, I Love the Black on Black Background, and the Poinsettia Stamp is very pretty indeed, I loved it when you placed it on Vellum then embossed in White and what a great idea to create the look of a larger flower, I also really love the Bella Swirl now learned you need Wax Paper for that, as I've torn it so many times, on the close ups of the photographs you can see the Watermark on your Sentiment great must try this, I'm also sorry it's the last of the Christmas Video's but at least we can do catch up with the others on your Blog! Also were still going to have Video's what more can we ask for love from Sam x

Norah McPhee said...

Good morning Sue,
I love the poinsettia plant as it is so beautiful, as the leaves turn so many different beautiful colours. This die set is i think my very favourite from all my dies and the although i have the petite poinsettia stamps set, this is one set of stamps i need as they are so pretty. It is a beautiful card that you have done today and one that i suspect a lot of us will be trying so please forgive the copying. They do say that imitating is the most sincerest form of flattery.
Thank you Sue for a beautiful card inspiration yet again.
Love and crafty hugs

Hi Sue. Happy Thanksgiving to you today. I hope you have a wonderful day with your friends and family.
I have watched your video and It is fab !! I am not really one for black and white cards but today's card is just stunning !! I love every thing about it. The SB poinsettia dies and stamps are one of my most favourite Christmas sets. My sister absolutely loves black and white stuff so I think I will make this card for her this Christmas. It is so elegant and classy looking. I am disapointed this is your last Christmas card video but I can still look back at all the other Christmas cards on your blog as I still have more to make.
Lancashire Steph, my day would not be complete without reading your blog comments. You make me laugh so much !! Thank you for cheering me up in the mornings. Have a lovely day every one. Lots of love, Tres x x x

When I saw you embossing with black powder on black card (I was only watching, couldn't hear you then 'cos I'm in the office so had you muted ;) ) I thought you'd lost the plot! When I see the finished result I can see why you did it. The whole card is gorgeous and I love the way you've expanded the poinsettia.

Sheila Lampard said...

Happy Thanksgiving Sue! I only had time to have a quick look at the card this morning and a quick view of the video (no sound) at work! So my first job when I got home was to look at the video - sound up! Opulent comes to mind -love the black embossing - will have to try that one and the poinsettia on velum. Perhaps will have to try another stamp just to finish off the last few cards for this year.
Another "I need" on my Christmas list - the poinsettia stamp.
Thank you for all the video inspiration and look forward to more in 2014.
Love Sheila

Even though it's the last Christmas card you will be showing, you have given us so much inspiration! Thank you for the wonderful videos, they are great! Good luck in the Wednesday Giveaway (yesterday) everybody! On which Sue, it was truly gorgeous! At first glance to me, the background looked like parchment.....stunning, stunning, stunning! xx Love Karen xx
