GM Sue - wowey - fantastic effect with the microbeads. Watched Julia's show yday, saw your (and others) fab cards and bought one of the sets, patterned quilt - what a great idea stamps, dies and embossing folder in one set - and for a reasonable price - think they'll be very popular. Will be watching Julia's shows today, after car is serviced and MOTd. Will watch video later as hubby still in bed!

To see one of your buckle cards first thing in a morning is fantastic and today's gift has all the things I love. The colours are my favourite - blue in any shade/white just hits the spot for me.

Sam Smithard said...

Morning Sue,
All I can say is
"Awesome Awesome Awesome" Triple Buckle Card and boy what a Beautiful Card it is! I Love the Soft Blue and White Card you have used, as you are aware I Love those Micro Beads, I love the different sizes and putting the three together really makes them stand out! Using a basic Spellbinder Label and turning it into something so Fantastic, that takes Talent and Sue you've got that! and the wonderful thing is you're willing to share all your idea's and inspirations with us all, although I will never be able to make Cards like yours I can at least gain some knowledge along the way.
Love from Sam x

Norah McPhee said...

Good morning Sue,
What a beautiful card yet again today with the differing sizes of micro beads texturing it, it really shows well. As i have a special 50th card to make today for a lovely man who is a carer to my son, i think this is just the ticket for him. I love the blue of the card that you are using as it is not a bright or sugary colour.
To Jan and all the winners, enjoy your beautiful cards.
Love and crafty hugs

Pearl said...

Morning Sue, hope you're keeping warm! I love this buckle card the colours are fab.
