Hello My Friend

Hello my crafty friends!  Another card from the same shows as yesterday's card, but a floral themed one today.  Who doesn't love sunflowers, they are just such cheerful flowers!  I used the JustRite Sunflower stamp set for this one.  I created a background for it using the Teresa Collins paper pad exclusive to Creative Expressions.  I picked a smaller vintage pattern to use as a wide border over a larger peach and cream pattern.  I stamped the corner from the Ornate Corner stamp set in black in the upper corner.  I used a sentiment from the Bold Sentiment set by Creative Expressions and stamped it in black in the lower corner.  I tied a piece of London tan seambinding around the border strip and taped the ends to the back of the card.  I stamped the sunflower on milk card and coloured it with Distress markers (wild honey, mustard seed, peeled paint, tea dye) I cut it out with the Vintage Labels Five but turned horizontally this time.  I inked it with Antique Linen while still in the die.  I mounted it with foam pieces in the centre of the card and added a messy bow out of matching seam binding.  I topped my bow with a black jute bow and a tan Dazzler.  The card was nicely finished with a double milk coloured mat with an inner pierced layer.  Finished dimensions are 7 1\2" x 8" in size.

The Wednesday Card Giveaway goes to :

Diane Mortimer!!!

GM Sue and everyone! What a a lovely sight, a bright cheerful sunflower. Just what I need this morning having had a sleepless night with the wind hurling things around outside and rather hoping a huge tree outside would not uproot and greet me by pinning me to my bed , LOL.
I love the colours in the card today Sue. A lovely blend. My SW dies arrived yesterday, I'm so excited!! Guess my housework is going to take a back seat this weekend!
Happy weekend everyone!
Hugs Annie

Morning Lovely Sue, Morning Lovely Wilsonettes. What a dreadful wet day again, when will it all stop ? Although the bulbs tell me different, Spring just feels an awful long way away to me ! So the bright, smiling sunflower is a cheerful sight this gloomy Saturday. Again I want to CONGRATULATE our lovely Wilsonette ladies on your die winnings and Diane on your Wednesday card, Im so thrilled (and relieved ) that I saw More GENUINE and REGULAR ladies listed, so good on ya my lovelies : ) for now, until the wedding is over I ordered the Feux Blooms last night as my Valentine gift from Mr Lancashire (he insisted on buying me flowers that last) HIS suggestion from the very first day of your launch Sue, I was going to start with the Italian collection as it has heart shapes thinking of my daughters wedding card - sorry, our daughter. But for the amount of dies in the Feux Blooms, I wanted to spend Mr L's what little spare cash he has as my carer wisely, and who has EVER produced SO many dies in ONE package, so thank you Sue : ) I have the February market next Sunday (can you believe I WONT be in to watch our Sue) Im totally sick to the pit of my stomach ! Hope you do a 5pm also Sue. But if Im lucky enough to sell enough cards then I shall invest in the Italian circular nesting dies with the tiny hearts as it would help me make the most beautiful wedding card my 'little girl' deserves on her wedding day : )
Everytime I watch the news, Im hoping and praying that non of 'our Wilsonettes' are caught up with flooding in your home, that all of you remain safe in your homes and that you have ALL your utilities still in place, that's all I hope for today. For once I have no crafting drama to tell you about as what with the galavanting last week, and the continuing pain and very odd shape
my knee has taken on, Ive not had the concentration to sit and make. Concentration ? YES concentration, we already have cricket pads in use within our Wilsonettes, and I know I whinge and moan about my stupid numb, out of line and shape fingers, but Id kind of like to keep em ! I suppose !

Good luck at the NEC promoting those fab dies Sue. We all know that as soon as the trade know of your new collection the shops will soon start ordering. I spread the Die news to ALL the shops I visited lately so hopefully they will look for the Wonder of Wilson trade stand at the NEC.
Love n hugs to me ladies.
Lancashire Steph - stay warm happy and safe xxx

Ecco of Sheffield said...

morning Sue
from a very dull dark and rainy Burgandy - my last full day here as I set off for Calais and hopefully cross to Dover and then up to Sheffield with fingers crossed for decent weather on both sides of the Channel.
I too love sunflowers - they are so Summer to me and look fantastic when there are fields and fields of them.
So of course today's gift is beautiful just for the focal point but also for the background papers.
Many congratulations to all who were lucky yesterday and with Wednesday's give away. It seems so wrong to just call it a give away when it is really a beautiful piece of art.
See you tomorrow before I set off.

GM Sue - after a wild and windy Valentines night (weatherwise I mean!)I didn't sleep that well. But looking at your blog makes me fell better - love the sunflower and the bow with that black thread is fab. Electricity is still on so I am v. grateful for that - I need a few coffees in the morning to get me up n running. Happy crafty weekend all Wilsonettes.

Lovely colours today Sue, quite earthy and solid! I love the bow and the jute. Personally, I think that the Vintage Labels 5 die looks better rotated 90 degrees if you know what I mean, but that's just me!

I hope you are coping with this horrendous weather here in Bristol it seems relentless, poor people in the Somerset Levels must be at the end of their tethers! After last nights storms I'm amazed the trees are still standing.

Lovely happy card Sue! soon be spring and all the Daffodils will be nodding their Golden heads!

Norah McPhee said...

Good morning Sue and fellow Wilsonettes,
You are working on me Sue with these darker cards as the papers are growing on me, but the sunflowers... well they don't need to grow on me as i love sunflowers just for the reason you gave.. they are happy flowers in the garden. They're like pansies with their pretty little faces, happy. After looking and taking another look, it is a lovely card Sue and just the right colours to complement it.
Well done to all of yesterdays winners of the beautiful dies, i hope you all enjoy your prize when they arrive. Sorry folks, but the brain doesn't retain much most of the time, but it would be asking too much of it to remember everyones name. I am really really happy to see some of our everyday names up there like Clare W, Sam Smithard, Heather, Kitty etc. I really hope that you enjoy your dies girls. I was so happy to see people that i see and talk to each day win such a lovely prize. Enjoy.
Diane, your nice and easy for my poor wee brain cells to cope with. Enjoy your beautiful card front that Sue made on Wednesday.
Steph my friend, do you know what the very best present that your wee girl could have at her wedding... her mum. Please take care and rest up, put the legs on top of a over turned waste paper bin with a cushion if it will help get down the swelling from over doing things.
Cameeli, fantastic news flower, shows just how very hard you have been working at it, i am so very pleased for you because every grooms mother wants to look their best for their son. You are going to enter this wedding with people going Waohhhhh, doesn't his mum look stunning.
Well from the windy Ochils in the middle of Scotland to the top and bottom of the uk, to the east and west i truely hope the weather gives up sometime soon and friends who are worst hit, my thoughts go out to you that you get the promised help soon.
See you all tomorrow hopefully,
Norah (Glenochil)

Hi Sue,
Hi Everyone,
I too thought the corner stamp was an inspired idea! However Sue is full of those ideas! Really like the colours today although I am not a big fan of that colour usually.

Congratulations to Diane! Wow a Sue original - how lovely?
The only bright things outside today are our snowdrops and crocuses! Promise of better weather we hope!
Steph it's unanimous! We all want you to rest! However ,please ensure waste paper bin is empty before you turn it upside down!

Love to all, Myra

Alison Couchman said...

A lovely card (tho' I confess it's not entirely my cup of tea) and I appreciate all the close-up photos that you take the time to do Sue. Without them I would miss some of the details like the 3 black pearls top left. I've never bought black ones because I thought they'd look too harsh but they work brilliantly on that background paper.

I'm a Sue follower who reads regularly but comments rarely. I understand the regular commenters are protective of their Sue community but some of the comments are not making me feel terribly welcome.

Hi Sue
Congratulations to all winners yesterday & Diane for winning the Wednesday Giveaway!
A lovely SUNflower to brighten us up after the terrible storm last night. Luckily we are ok - but several trees and a brick wall have come down nearby.
Take care everyone.

Hi Sue
Lovely card. Very spring themed with the colours. Only wish the weather was springlike and not horrendous gale force winds. Atleast we have your post to cheer us up.
Love

Another fabulous card! I don't like sunflowers 'cos I am jealous that they are everything I'm not- ie tall, slim and impressive, lol! You just seem to get everything right when you are making cards Sue, you are magic!

Congratulations to all the lucky winners of Sues dies and today's winner Diane
A lovely cheerful card today for this very blustery wet and dull day. Sunflowers always cheer me up.
Hugs Sue xx

Tres said...

Hi Sue. This is a beautiful card today !! I love the Teresa Collins papers and I think these go together really well. I love Sunflowers and this one is fab!! I love how you have done your colouring in Sue, it is wonderful and really life like. I am not to keen on the justrite labels five shape.(just personal opinion.) I think there are some much nicer die shapes out there including all your new die sets Sue !!
Congrats to all the people who won die sets and to the winner of Wednesdays card giveaway.
Lindsay Martin I am so very sorry to hear the sad news about your horse. My thoughts are with you.
I hope you are feeling better soon Steph.
Cameeli Congrats on your weight loss. I need to loose some weight but I just cant seem to get my head around starting a diet. It is so difficult to do when you are unwell.
Well Sue my classic rose dies arrived this morning. (Another gift from hubby as it is pay day.) I cant wait to start playing with them. They are the best flowers he has ever bought me !!
Take care Sue and all the willsonettes love Tres x x x

Hi Sue,
another fabulous card. Love the colours they go so well together.We needed something to cheer us up.
Have a good weekend.

Karen Knight said...

Hi Sue, this is a very 'Sue' card...

Sumptuous!
Unique!
Elegant!

The sun has actually dared to show it's bright and warm face today after the dreadful windy and rainy night last night - so the Sunflower is very appropriate! More forecast for tomorrow (but won't count the chickens). I do hope it stops soon for the very unfortunate folks who have been affected by the floods so that life can get back to some sort of normality. See you all tomorrow. Love Karen x

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, another gorgeous card with a sunny aspect. I think you are trying to cheer us all up in this dreary weather by reminding us that it will be summer again - someday. The sunflower stamp is stunning and your colouring excellent as always.
Congratulations Diane Mortimer on winning a Sue original.
Hope everyone enjoys the week-end despite the weather.
Frances

Good afternoon Sue, this is a very pretty card, am really liking the colour choice and stamp but,sorry to say, i'm not over keen on the die.sorry.
I am now the happy owner of 2 of your fab new dies-my crafty haven at Lyndhurst has just replenished his stock.YAY! Sadly had to restrict myself as have just replaced my dead G.C.
Hope you are well, loved yesterdays pics- big up to you for kayaking, its on my to do list once my new knee is put right.xx

Rosemarie said...

Hi Sue, Very late today, have been without power for 18 hours. It was lovely to see the smiling sunflower today, they cheer everyone up.
Love Rosemarie xx

Pinky said...

Hi Sue. Lovely card, as always, especially like the backing paper.

However, I've hesitated to comment today as I don't class myself as a "Wilsonette" (and after what I've read I'm not sure I would want to be!) and I have found some of the comments about the die winners unnecessary. Surely, as crafters are SUPPOSED to be such "nice people"(although I'm not so sure now) we can be happy for all those who won whether they are able to post regularly or not. Sue and her blog are always so inclusive in the things she teaches and inspires it seems a shame that some who claim to "follow" her should spoil her generosity because they seem to think their 'club' should be EXclusive.

SO, Thanks, Sue for all you do and Well Done and Enjoy to EVERYONE who won a die and all those who win stuff every week. Vicki

Lorraine Thompson said...

Lovely colours Not ones I would have thought of using but when I see them they are lovely together. Thanks for inspiration again xx

Cazzie D said...

Love the colour combination, and backing papers, although I must confess the flower image is not to my personal taste. Nevertheless, still a gorgeous card.

Sue, I've still got a smile on my face today from receiving the news that I won one of your dies.

lynda said...

Beautiful card Sue, sunflowers are so gorgeous.
I don't think anyone means any harm to the new followers but there are a lot of people out there who just go round peoples blogs and comment when there are prizes to win and are never seen again. Sue is a very much loved and respected person and is very generous with her time and her craft products and maybe sometimes we can be a bit over protective towards her.
I think we all feel part of a family on this blog and no one would be intentionally nasty or make someone feel unwelcome. The more new followers the better for Sue and we can get her back to her rightful blog position of No1!!!

Myra said...

Dear All,
I have been reading some comments today with dismay.
At the risk of alienating everyone, those who post almost daily and those who post irregularly - please can we draw a line under this now?
Those who post regularly are not unkind , nor selfish
just love this Blog and particularly love Sue.
I guess those who post now and again may also check the Blog almost daily.
Yes we crafters are kind, sharing people and that is obvious from the comments and good wishes left each day.
Please, I am not a goody two shoes, and could end up making everyone mad at me but one thing we all have in common is that we love Sue and her wonderful gift and style.
Let's just enjoy this Blog and hopefully we'll grow in number getting Sue back to number 1 . She is there already in our eyes anyway.
Trust I'm not making things worse.
Love to All
Myra

Pam said...

Hello Lindsay Martin, so sorry to hear about your tragedy with your horse. It is 2 years since my daughter and grandson lost his 1st horse and they were so distraught. Even though they now have 2 more horses, he has not forgotten his beloved 1st horse Mojo. My heart goes out to you.

ros hodgkins said...

Hello Sue, We need sunshine at the moment and your card is full of it.I am very busy this weekend as I have some wonderful new dies that have just come onto the market by a novice called Sue Wilson haha. I am loving them Sue I have all the flowers and a good mix of other shapes. Will buy the rest soon.

Please take no notice of the sad comments from 'regulars' who should know better.
You ARE welcome and this blog is not a club, it's an appreciation of what Sue does.
And I do comment most days, though wouldn't expect others to. We all have different commitments and lifestyles which perhaps don't make it easy.

Theresa said...

Hi Sue
A beautiful card as usual makes me think of the coming summer. If it ever gets here
Never seen weather like we are having lately
Hope you are getting over your journey Sue.
Caught Julia today on C&C and yes I parted with more mone good job it was pay day yesterday. Lol
You Take Care Sue

To Anonymous - Thanks for that and for your understanding. Even though I've been reading Sue's posts for over 2 years and I wouldn't miss the daily fix of ideas and inspiration there are lots of reasons why I don't comment every day. Vicki

Brenda Hanlon said...

Love the colours on this. I do wonder how things/colours get their names sometimes, the colour of the seam binding "London Tan" has tickled me. Never thought of tan before as place to go for a tan. I do like the colour though.

Tina Eldridge said...

Hi Sue

Late today, I have been making my daughters birthday card for tomorrow.

Beautiful card today, sunflowers are summers sundials, that's what my friend told me once, and I've never forgotten it. Love the papers you have used today, they are very grown up.

Steph. I wish there was something we could do to take that awful pain away, thinking of you. Well dome Cameeli on losing a stone, and well dome lucky Diane. Hope everyone has a good Saturday evening.

Kind regards :-)

Tina XX

Tina Eldridge said...

How could I spell the same word wrong twice, it was meant to be well done not well dome. Good grief!

Love the colours of this card Sue, the background papers complement the stamped image perfectly. Another winning card.

Jan Sharp said...

Stunning card, really elegant. Is it the backing papers combined with the colours that make it so?
Congratulations to all winners. Hope everyone's safe and well after the awful weather last night.,
Have fun, love Janxx

Theresa Pace said...

your colouring in on this one is ace Sue. and those teresa collins papers are really cool and go so well together. stamping that corner in black and then matting in black is very clever. it looks like you have a cut out on the background paper. xx

Good evening Sue
I really love the colour you have used and successfully combined it with beautiful patterned paper and a gorgeous coloured topper. A lovely card to send to a friend.
