Orphan Cards

Hi there bloggers!  This is probably the most controversial post I do all year, but it is sort of a tradition that on the last day of the year, I post what I call my orphan cards.  These are some of the cards that I made throughout the year that just didn't sing to me when there were done.  Sometimes, I have a vision in my head of what I think they will look like and they just don't.  Sometimes, the colours aren't working together for some reason.  Often, I just didn't have something to work with that could have made the difference.  Whatever it is, here are my Orphan cards for 2013.  They never made the blog because I wasn't happy enough with them, but they need a good home, someone to love them and nurture them.  So if you would like a chance to win my Orphan Cards, please leave me a comment today and I will draw a winner and post the name on Friday.  I do want to say, however, that I leave for Florida on Thursday so the task of posting these out has fallen to a coworker.  She may or may not be able to find every one of these cards so it may be a partial shipment this year.  What do you say, do you want to be a foster parent?

One more quick note before I wrap up the year.  Many of you will remember that I did a demo up in Scotland this past July.  I got a lovely email this week from both The Papeterie in Aberdeen and the charity called Archway that we raised money for.  It seems that we not only hit the target goal of raising £5,000, but we smashed it to bits and raised over £7,000!!!  That is due to both the efforts of the small staff at The Papeterie (four people) and their special money raising events, the charity card auction we did on the blog as well as all the DVD's that were sold from the demo day in July.    I want to say a great big thank you for all of your help to surpass that remarkable goal!  The monies raised will allow Archway to maintain the services and opportunities it provides for it's respite care.  I can't thank you enough!  You are an amazing bunch!   All for now, Sue x

Sue, These cards are great and some certainly sing to me. I am glad so much money was raised from your trip to Scotland and you got to see some great places. I bought the DVD that they made and was certainly jealous that I was not there. Have a great trip to the States and enjoy quality time with your Mum. Here is to a healthy and prosperous New Year to you and your family and all your followers.
Hugs

Pearl said...

I think these 'orphan' cards are great Sue. We rae our own worst critics so what we may not like, others will. Sign of a true perfectionist I think!

They each need their own blog spot in my opinion.

Craftihappiness to you all, love from Pearl.

Hi Sue
Thank you for your inspiration over the past year. An amazing achievement to post a card (or more!) every day. I would hate to see any of your cards orphaned, so would love to foster one of them. I can offer some wall space in my tiny craft room where it would take pride of place.
Have a good trip to the States.
Happy new year to everyone!

How I wish my "orphan" cards looked like yours! Sure we all have them as I most certainly do,and it is usually these sorts of cards that take the longest time to do too! What a great amount raised for the charity. just shows what can be done when everyone pulls together. i still haven't watched all my dvd yet! Anyway Sue,thank you for some wonderful blogs and demos, have a safe journey over to Florida (wish I was going with you), and a peaceful, happy and healthy 2014. X x x

Good morning Sue, I can relate to your feeling of disappointment in a finished card as I often feel mine do not live up to my expectations.

Congratulations on the wonderful fund raiser total! Have a safe journey home and Happy New Year. x

camelot67 said...

Good Morning Sue,

Firstly, many congratulations to everyone who helped to achieve the amazing total of £7,000 for Archway. You must be so delighted Sue to have been able to play such an important part in the fund raising. As for the "orphan cards" obviously I would love to be the one chosen to keep these safe for posterity's sake, but in the event that I'm not it's comforting to know that some like-minded person will be keeping these safe. I would however like to thank you for your amazing inspiration and sheer hardwork on our behalf over the past year. I know that I for one have greatly improved my cardmaking skills because of it. It only remains to say I wish you a safe journey back to Florida and a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year.

ros hodgkins said...

Hi Sue, I wish you a Happy New Year, and looking forward to the goodies you will be showing us from the CHA.

I feel sure you will be so pleased that between so few very dedicated people you have surpassed the goal by 40%.
I do hope you get to stay with your mom for a while before you bounce back to us.
Last but not least I would love to give a good home to any of your orphans but feel it would be greedy to ask to be considered as a foster mum in the same week I was picked as a winner on Sunday, so will sit this one out but I will declare myself as my wish for 2014 is to own a Sue Wilson Original.
Happy New Year to all Wilsonette's

Who wouldn't want to be foster parent to even one of these cards,it would be an honour.Great news about the funds raised for the charity,partly through your own hard work which you carefully don't mention!Hope that you have a lovely trip out to your Mom's.

Anonymous said...

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes. Sue, you are such a special person, as are those Wilsonettes that have been with you long enough to participate in helping raise funds for the charity, well done wonderful Wilsonettes, be proud of yourselves.
I almost feel greedy saying this as I was just lucky enough to win a prize a few weeks ago, but if there is a card in need of TLC, then Id love the chance to give it : )
Thank you Sue for bringing all us Wilsonettes together, and I SO look forward to spending 2014 with you all.
Have a safe journey to Florida Sue, and enjoy your time there, my joints sure could do with some of that Floridian heat at the moment.
Im really looking forward to see what you bring us in 2014 (but my bank account isn't) tuff : )

Wishing all my lovely fellow Wilsonettes an enjoyable NYE and a 2014 full of love, health, happiness and craft.
Love ya.

Well Sue, I would have been delighted to have produced any of your so-called "orphan" cards! Your standards are very high and you are certainly proud to show us the ones you are most happy with.

Although your 14 'orphan cards' may not have come up to your expectations they all look great to me! I would be over the moon to offer them a nurturing environment. News that the Archway charity fundraising event far surpassed the hoped-for amount is amazing and I am really pleased to have taken part in your blog auction towards this. Thank you for the inspiration you bring us through your blog and demonstration videos. Wishing you a great trip and a Happy New Year to one and all.

HAPPY HEALTHY NEW YEAR to one and all. How about YOU adopt ME Sue?? I could help in lots of ways I'm sure. I wouldn't complain if the weather was too warm in Florida honest!! Have a lovely time and don't work too hard but when you enjoy your work as you obviously do it's not a chore. Great that the Charity did so well I too am lucky to own one of the DVD's from there. I would love to own one of the cards you are looking for a home for. Take care. Mabex

It's always interesting that we have cards that we feel have gone wrong or don't turn out how we imagined but other people love them. These are all wonderful designs Sue. What a fantastic achievement raising the £7,000 was, well done to everyone, I'm sure it was well appreciated. Enjoy your time at the CHA and I wish you and all your followers a Happy Peaceful and healthy New Year xx

Norah McPhee said...

Good afternoon Sue and all fellow Wilsonettes,
Firstly thank you EVERYONE that took part in raising so much money for such a worthwhile cause as Archway. You don't know just what a place like Archway does for people such as myself. Although not Archway, i have Play Alloa who gave me respite for my Autistic son. They have been there and gave me what seems nothing to others, but 3 hours on a Saturday morning, it gave me back my sanity. Even at his worse, they never barred my wee boy Rory. They gave him 1-2-1 attention that he needed, but gave him a chance to have a friend. He had never had that as none of the children would play with him. I unfortunately because of accidents and school abuse, disabled and can't walk the same, but my scooter is great, so from people like myself who needs just that wee bit extra help from one of these charities i thank each and everyone of you that helped raised such an incredible amount for such a worthy cause.
Sue, how could not love these poor wee orphans? I think they need a good home that is going to treat them nicely and they don't ask for much, just a wee space to sit and be loved.
Have a good and safe journey back to your homeland and your beloved mum. I know she has very good friends to take care of her when you are not there, but a mum never gets tired of seeing their children, even at your age. All the very best for the new year that is coming.
To all my wonderful fellow Wilsonettes i wish you all that is good and thank you for cheering me up and keeping me going. Have a great night and since i don't drink i can only raise my coffee cup to you (someone can have my share of the tipple).
Love and crafty hugs, see you next year,
Norah (Glenochil)

Tina Eldridge said...

Hi Sue




Your orphan cards are beautiful, and I have a really fun room for one to reside in if lucky enough to be chosen.

Kind regards :-)
