The Best of 2013

Happy New Year bloggers!  I can't actually believe that it is 2014 already!  Last year was just a blur it went by so quickly but I am already working hard to bring you new products, ideas and techniques in the year to come.  Another tradition that I have done each year on my blog is to go back and pick out my personal favourite cards to showcase on New Years day.  I always start out with good intentions of selecting one from each month that stands out, but then I find a month like March that had so many that I really loved that my plan just falls to pieces.  So I just selected the ones that really sang to me, sometimes they were the ones with the most comments and other times not.  These just happen to be my personal favourites.  I do so wish that you could see each and every one in person rather than just having to make a decision based on my sometimes rather tenuous photography skills!  Like the black and white card which is so pretty in person that I just couldn't put it down, it stayed on my desk for a week!  Or the baby card, which looks pale yellow in my pic but which was made from our lovely milk card.  Or even the pale pink card with the upside down embossing, proving that they don't have to be perfect to be loved!  Some of these were demos, some were part of the Wednesday Giveaway, some were auctioned off early in the year to raise money for charity, but all of these just sang to me when I finished them!  So here is my list in no particular order.  I hope that over the past year you have enjoyed them as much as I have.  Do you have a favourite?  From my list or one that I perhaps left off the list?  I would just love to know, please share.   Happy New Year!  All for now, Sue x

Morning Sue (really hope you are feeling a little better today, you must try to rest a little before your long flight) thinking of you. Happy New Year. I couldn't have got through these past few months without you Sue and your amazing blog, not just for the stunning cards and inspiration you give, but for the new friends and family your blog brings together. Thank you Sue. "THANK YOU" xx
Happy New Year to all my new friends (Wilsonettes) so glad I found you, I have my phone on silent so the tapping doesn't hurt your head ! Self inflicted, no sympathy ! : ) Hope those of you that celebrated had a great time.
How can I choose from all of those stunning pieces of art - an absolute array of W.O.W's (Wonder Of Wilson's) they all have their own powers of beauty and wonder, but they ALL show the same thing - how much love and thought and tenderness has gone into each and every card. I shall spend a lot of this new month (when I've completed those sport come science geek cards) growing my hair back, and going through each and every card I missed on the blog, I cant wait : )
So to all my lovely special friends here, "Thank you" That's ALL I need to say. You are helping me more than you know.

Up my nose
and in my hair, glitter and flakes are everywhere.
The year sped by so craftily fast,
but the sparkles and glitter they just seem to last !
So HAPPY NEW YEAR to all my new
friends,
may our 'Parti' continue and never end.

Thinking of you and the welcome baby one are my favourites, but then again the one I received from you in April does hold special significance for me and my family.
I admire all your cards and thank you so much for sharing them with us. Happy New Year to you and your family and also to the Wilsonettes. Hugs Cheryl xxx

Rose in Chester said...

Hi Sue,
What an array of beauties, and I would suggest you add LOADS MORE of your creations. Stunners one and all. Thank you so much for sharing. Have a HAPPY and HEALTHY 2014!
And I really must extend those wishes to Lancashire Steph, her comments are always a joy to read. I really hope that 2014 will be a better year for you as regards health.
Off to bed again, Katinka has had her "petit dejeuner" and whilst my head is perfectly fine I'm still lacking sleep before the New Year's Concert at 10.15 (courtesy of the red button) - it's a tradition to watch it.
I really hope you are feeling TONS better today Sue.
Hugs, Rose

Ecco of Sheffield said...

morning Sue
A VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR to all. I hope 2014 will be a Healthy and Peaceful year for everyone not only on here but around the world.
How can I choose a favourite - I just cannot - they are all so beautiful and one or two of my friends have received a copy of one or two of your favourites Sue.
Have a safe journey tomorrow Sue and I am impatiently waiting to see you once again on C&C or perhaps your own crafting programme!!! Now that would be the best present.
I'm sure I'm not the only one who would love that to happen.

Mrs B said...

Happy New Year Sue and All the Wilsonettes. Every single one of these cards is beautiful, and you have my favourite among them :) I fell in love with the red/white "Love You" when you first showed it and it is still my no. 1. I couldn't tell you why, it is quite different from your big bowed cards, which I have always loved, but it is simply gorgeous! Maybe subconsciously I felt that I could make a better job of copying it as I can never make my big bow copies anywhere near as good as yours :) Thank you again for all of the fantastic cards in 2013 and I look forward to seeing what you have in store for us in 2014. My day always starts with your blog, then Pams comment. (It's not right when she isn't the first! A special Happy 2014 Pam for always being there along with Sue :)) I wouldn't want it any other way. Take care.

Happy New Year Sue and all our fellow bloggers.Love all these cards, especially love the friends sentiments. Thank you Sue for the massive effort you have put in to your blog and for all the inspiration given. Hope you are feeling better and wish you well for your flight. Wishing you and all of us a happy and peaceful 2014 x

Lacelady said...

HAPPY NEW YEAR! to Sue and all the Wilsonettes. Sue, I can see why you like those favs., out of those, I think I like the promrose Welcome Baby one, but it's very hard to choose, because I haven't ever thought that you have made a duff one! Occasionally I'm not so keen on your colour choice, but I can always see past that and generally love what you have made. I think out of all, I still like your buckle cards most, they seem so inventive somehow.

I really appreciate all your efforts, out of all the bloggers I follow, only you and Julia manage to make a card everyday, it's such a joy to wake up wondering what I'll see when I come to visit. Thank you so much for brightening my day every morning.

Sue Dunn said...

Happy new year Sue. I love your cards but the two that stand out for me above are the simple pink birthday card and mostly the black and white card, the 2nd illustration. I'm looking forward to a better year ahead and will be inspired daily by you. Have a great flight tomorrow and hurry back. Xx

Anonymous said...

HNY Sue! I do love No 3 Hello my Friend and the blue one with the window die especially - but I really like them all! They are different from each other but all lovely in their own way - so choosing is an impossible task really! Hope you have a safe journey and a Happy Crafty 2014 to all.

Happy New Year to you, Sue, and all the crafty people out there. Hope it is healthy, happy and peaceful.
All such lovely cards, but my absolute favourite is the coconut and Victorian velvet 'Thinking of You' - the inspiration for several of my cards this year and in varying formats and colours. Just love it.
Thank you again, Sue, for a 2013 filled with such generous crafting joy and now the anticipation of what this year will bring. Have a feeling it will be very good!

Happy new year Sue and all the Wilsonettes
I love all the cards and think your list should be longer but the one that stands out for me is the bonsai tree card, I think it's because of the simplicity of it. Hope your feeling better and have a safe journey over the pond. That was so considerate of you Steph having your phone on silent lol.

Happy New Year to you and your followers. I hope that 2014 will be happy and healthy for everyone.
It's difficult to choose a favourite but there are several that I have copied, changing the dies for similar ones that I have and some I've repeated in different colour schemes. I'm the office 'card fairy', making and circulating cards for everyone to sign for birthdays and other special occasions and the cards are always loved and talked about so I thank you for your daily inspiration.
Lots of love,
Karen

Happy New Year Sue! It was a lovely surprise to see some of your favourite cards from 2013, I scrolled through them several times but I'm still unable to decide which one is my favourite, they're all stunning. The heart (Love You) design has given me the inspiration for my valentines card (or possibly anniversary card,) so many thanks for that! I look forward to all the wonderful ideas and products you have in the pipeline. x

Good morning Sue and everyone and a Happy New Year to you all.
All art is subjective so there will always be ones you like that other folk are not so keen on.Im sure Monet had the same problem! For me, I loved the autumn leaves as soon as I saw it on tv . Also love the lilac elegant labels four with lattice card.
Safe travels tomorrow.

It is hard to pick a favourite from your list as your work is so great, but I have narrowed it down to two. the first being the Red and White 'love you' card and then the last card on your list too. They are both so different and both very stylish and perfectly done. It is always a pleasure seeing your work.

Hi Sue,

HAPPY NEW YEAR to you and your family.

Beautiful cards, it is hard to pick just one but I guess for me, as I love Autumn and the colours it brings it will have to be the first one on your list. The others are by no means second best!

May 2014 bring you peace and happiness.

Love & Hugs

Norah McPhee said...

Good morning Sue and fellow Wilsonettes,
Well it's the start of a brand new year, with it being calm and i did have a glimpse of sun a minute ago. I hope this is a good year for all friends that i have each morning in all of you and older friendships that have lasted the test of time.
Well todays reprise of your favourites Sue is surprising only in the fact that there isn't a all white card amongst them. And for me there is so many that i really love but the one that does it for me is the last one. Now i love your all white cards as you always make them standout each and every part and i wouldn't normally go for a colourful card, but the friendship card is just so apt to dear friends that are not crafters (don't understand it myself somehow) and the friendships built on your blog. Thank you each and everyone of you that are so kind and make a difference in my day.
Love and crafty hugs
Norah (Glenochil)

Hi Sue, Happy New Year to all "Wilsonettes" and their families.

Hi Sue, all your cards are stunning. If I had to chose then the last one stands out just a little bit more. As for a missing favourite for me then Hark the Herald Angel Sing with your alternative fire and ice technique. Absolutely Fabulous.....

Happy New Year to all and my New Year resolution is to use the craft products I have bought and still not used. One year old Melt Pot still not opened. Woops don't tell Hels. lol

Maryann Laursen said...

There are sooo many favorites among your cards Sue, but here I totally love the second one here, and the one with the heart embossingfolder, that I have hunted all last year, but which noone ever seems to have in stock anywhere, so I hope, that this will be the year, when they´ll make a batch big enough, so we can have one of those.
Happy new Year to you and yours Sue, I can´t wait to see, what you´ll bring us of goodies this year again, but I´m certain it´ll be awesome no matter what, as that´s all you CAN do.

hi Sue, how can we pick a favourite from so many lovely cards? One I would pick though is back on August 28th, a thank you card in three panels. That one really appealed to me. Happy New Year, love from Jackie D

Sheila Lampard said...

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO SUE & ALL!!
My favourite is the Autumn leaves as I did my own version for my daughter's birthday as she is out in Hong Kong & as I enjoyed making it so much did a similar one for my niece. But I love them all, just the last one is still growing on me.
Look forward to more inspiration in 2014 - you are marvellous!!

camelot67 said...

Good Morning Sue,

Happy New Year to you and yours and of course to every one of my fellow blog "friends". Have a good one everyone!

I'm so thankful that you opened the door, so to speak, to allow us to pick a favourite because normally I would not think of doing so because each and every one of them are always so beautiful. However I feel just for today I will make an exception and choose one and I have decided that it just has to be the last one. It is trully stunning and has everything that I personally look for in a card. I just want to finish by saying a HUGE Thank You for your continued inspiration and to say that I am really looking forward to seeing what you have in store for us all in 2014. Thanks for sharing these with us and I hope you enjoy the rest of your day.
Margaret A.

Happy New Year Sue. My favourite from your list is the first one you showed on your blog with the leaves. I have everything I need to try & make a similar card so I will give it a go shortly. There were many, many cards you made over the year which I loved & they have gone into a 'Sue Wilson' file on my computer for me to check back on when I need some inspiration. Keep up the good work in 2014. Ann (France)

Jill Liddle said...

Happy New Year to you too Sue.Like all the cards yesterday, it is nearly impossible to pick a favourite, but numbers 4 and 16 really do it for me today. All are lovely though.

Hi Sue
A very happy and healthy new year to you and all your followers. I love all your favourite cards but my favourite of 2013 appeared on Monday and was the black and white Oops-a-Daisy
Looking forward to all the new and exciting ideas you will bring us in 2014
Best wishes, Pat

Hi Sue

Hope this finds you well today. How on earth can any of us choose a favourite as all your cards are stunning. I love the cards you have done in lilac and white and black and white. However, I cannot choose a favourite. Have a good journey across the pond. Hope you and all your followers have a lovely day today. Thanks to Lancashire Steph for her witty ditty today and hope that 2014 will be better than 2013. WISHING SUE AND ALL HER FOLLOWERS A HAPPY NEW YEAR.

Happy New Year Sue, love the cards and I can proudly say I now own the lilac third card down from the top. It's sooo gorgeous in real life. xx

Tres said...

Hi Sue. Happy new year to everyone !! WOW, so many beautiful cards to choose from today. It is very difficult as they are all so beautiful !! Well the first card with the autumn leaves is just beautiful !! The black and white "Cheer Up" card is very classy and elegant looking. I do like your Lilac/ Purple "celebrate your special day" card. It is very pretty and feminine with a really beautiful flower !! I think a real favourite is the white or cream with lilac/ purple flowers "you are on my mind" card. Just gorgeous !! Also other favourites from today's selection are the labels 20. " thinking of you" in cream and orange/ rust colours. gorgeous flowers again Sue !! I also really love the unusual colour combo pink and brown Lacey style card " to my forever friend" . Just fantastic and again beautiful flowers !! The last card that is a " book style" is again gorgeous !! With more gorgeous flowers and swirls. My hubby's favourite card is also the last card the " book style" one. He also likes the blue " hello my friend" and yet again more gorgeous flowers and a beautiful filigree style background. There are many other favourites of mine to. I really love the labels four cards you have made over this last year and the cards made using the plain and decorative labels twenty five.
Well I would like to thank you Sue so very much for all the hard work and effort you have put into your blog this year, keeping us bloggers happy with such beautiful daily cards, comment competitions and video demos. WOW !! You have also bought so many people together helping and supporting one another with craft queries and problems as well as personal stuff to. It is very reassuring to know we are all here for one another. It is a great comfort.
Wishing you a wonderful New year Sue and all the Wilsonettes. Lots of love and best wishes Tres x x x

A Very Happy New Year Sue and all your bloggers. Well it is so hard to choose a favourite as they are all brilliant, but have to admit I do love the bonsai tree as it is so striking and stands out from the rest.

Hi sue& gang
Happy new year to u all!!!
Awwww man how can u possibly choose a bloomin favourite? I'd have them all I'm greedy!! Hee hee. They are all stunning In their own right but I particularly like the black and white monochrome looking ones and the purple and white one made with the criss cross die. I actually went and bought the die after seeing this card made.
Love to all for a fabulous crafty and healthy new year.

I can see why you picked these ones out because they are all pretty special, my favourite is the book one. It has so many techniques, the colour combo is beautiful, the verse is so poignant and you show yet another way to be versatile with the dies by making them into a book! FABULOUS!,
