It's a Two-Fer Sunday

 Good Sunday morning all!  Since I am delving into the sweet treats, I decided to go all the way and let you have two of them today!  This first card was a real lark to make as I just started stamping a piece of milk coloured card with the ice cream cones from the Cupcake Celebration stamp set.   They are in two parts as you can mix and match the top and bottoms of the cones with other styles on the set.  I stamped all the cones, then went back and stamped in all the ice cream.  I picked pastel pink, yellow and blue to colour them and kept all the cones the same.  On each of them, I added a soft blue shadow around the edge.  I covered the entire background with a sticky adhesive sheet and then added Glacier Ice.  I used three pastel colours of seam binding and tied it around the bottom of the card and made a matching messy bow.  I stamped a sentiment tag and cut it out with one of the tags from the Cupcake set.  I tucked it under a wooden button with some twine on my bow.  I stamped the large ice cream cone from The Scoop stamp set by Justrite, coloured and cut it out by hand.  I cut one of the tags from the Vintage Labels Four die set out of milk card and inked through it with Antique linen.  I cut another out of blush card, cut it in half and used it as a shadow.  I mounted it on the card as my focal element.  I finished the card with a double milk mat and used the new Cosmic Shimmer Ivory PVA Glue dots around the edge.  Finished dimensions are 6 1/2" x 8" in size.  There is another sweet treat for you below!

 Card number two is a clean and simple version.  I cut a heart aperture out of a piece of coconut white card.  I embossed the remaining background with the new Honeycomb embossing folder.  I added mounting foam to the back and mounted it over a striped decorative paper from my stash.  I stamped my sentiment and made it into a double ended flag and mounted it partially across my aperture.  I stamped one of the small cones and added three scoops of ice cream to it.  I coloured it to look like chocolate ice cream and cut it out.  I added a tiny piece of foam to the back and attached it to my sentiment flag.  Using the Choco brown PVA glue, I added the chocolate "sauce" to the top and allowed it to dry.  To complete this card I added a double white mat and used the Cosmic Shimmer White PVA glue to dot all the way around the edge to frame my card.  Finished dimensions are 7 1/4" x 8 1/2" in size.
Sorry to have to make you wait another day for the Comment game winners to be drawn, but don't forget to read all the way to the bottom of the post on Monday to see if your name has been picked!  All for now, Sue x

Rosemarie said...

Morning Sue, very quick visit this morning. I love both of these cards, the ice cream one is great, makes you want to buy one right now and the second card so clean and simple. Hope all is going well at Ally Pally. Just off to wake the bride for a quiet cup of tea together, before the busy day starts. I am one very proud Mum today. Got lots of tissues.

Love Rosemarie xx

CraftySuetoo said...

Good morning Sue and everyone. I loved the first card when I saw it on the TV, but it's even better close up. More stamps to add to the wish list !!!
Sending very special thoughts to you Pam on this difficult day, and to everyone in pain - physical or emotional.
Rosemarie, the hard work is done now, just relax and enjoy the day.
Anyone going to AP today have a fabulous time - say hi to Sue from those of us who can't make it.

kitty davies said...

Good Morning Sue.
Thank you two very lovely cards,
sometimes you have that odd scrap of bright paper and the second card is very inspirational.
Ice cream is my favourit food, best wishes to all take care Kitty

cr@fty said...

Good morning Sue
I love both cards they are so different but each is beautiful. When I first saw the ice cream stamps I wasn't too keen on them but they have grown on me since I've seen what you can do with them.
Rosemarie enjoy your daughters day, I'll keep my fingers crossed the weather stays fine. Sending a hug to Pam, Tandy and all that are not well. Steph hope your hands are a lot better today. I can't wait to read about everybody's day yesterday at Ally Pally.
Hugs x

Happy cards today, Sue, saw the first on C&C and know the small person who would just love it!! He's just been down to Newquay on holiday and had two different flavours every day - his highlight.
Rosemarie - wishing you a perfect day.
Pam, Carol, Tandy and karenlotty - special thoughts.
Sorry you didn't get a birthday foal, Lindsay ('our' mare who grazes here has been taken away to have her babe - but will be returning. Can't wait!)
Thanks to all inc Magpie for good wishes re himself - feeling a little perkier now (me, not him!)
No, actually he is much better, thank heavens.
Look forward to all wedding and AP news - keep us posted.

GM Sue - It was really great to meet you in person yday for the first time - OK it took me a few attempts as every time I walked past your stand you were surrounded by folks about 3 deep! but I found a thinner queue for you at lunchtime which was good and we had a nice chat which was lovely - your stand had soooo many samples on - it looked wonderful. I also met Cameeli - nice to put a face to the names - bit didn't see any other Wilsonettes but we left early about 2ish as we wanted to travel back before the football fans - ughh! Yes I bought lots of things that hubby kindly carried in his rucksack - so he became by bag carrier and didn't read his book once! There were plenty of places he could sit and read if he'd have wanted but he seemed quite happy people watching whilst I went round the stands - he saw some some interesting things which completely went past me including a lady with a bloody nose, another wearing a witches hat, another in a mobility scooter who when she couldn't get to something she wanted on a stand, she got out of her scooter to get it (he said that smacked of the david walliams wheelchair sketch). This was his first craft show and I dont think he could quite take in all those ladies packed into a stall trying to shop! men ehh.... they just wouldn't bother. Anyway came home with a selection of card, some inks, some markers, some pearls, some stamps, some dies, a pot of EP and a pair of scissors - oh and some CE chalk paints - so enough to keep me v. busy for quite a while.

We got home at 5ish, had a much needed cuppa and then hit the sofa for 40 winks before watching the masters golf on TV - it was a tiring day and my legs and feet where killing me when I got home but glad we did it - even think the hubby might go again sometime- I did make sure he had a coffee break after 1 hour and a lunch break after another 1.5. hours and we both needed that! Going to have an easy day today to recover!

Todays cards are fab - love the first one and also the simplicity of the 2nd one but so efective.

If you are off to AP today you will love it I am sure. Have a great day!

Cameeli of Richmond said...

Meant to say Two Fer cards like the rainbow heart.
Pam I have just read your comment from the 11th it was really sweet of you, I have to keep going back to see what I have missed!!

Have a great day if you are at Ally Pally today, you will not be disappointed with the stands. Don't miss Barbara Gray on Clarity next door to Rubbernecker!!

Welcome Yvonne, Norah great news about your Girls engagements.
Steph take care sweetie, I am sending a hug for your hands. A hug for Norah too and those who need one.

Myra from Florida and all the other sweet ladies, my Partner is recovering and was happy for me to go to AP, we get the results next week. She is exhausted now with all my booty show and tell and the shock of a new E-bosser!! and of course lots of goodies from Sue's Stand!!

I agree with Julie B, Sue was mobbed for most of time we were there, but in a nice way, but bless her heart she made time for everyone, and was really cute with a little girl watching the demos, it was precious. I had a hug from Sue too, hope some of her creative magic rubs off on me sorry no photo though.

Met a lovely lady from the blog in wheelchair ( you know who you are) I am having a senior moment with names these days, but and we had a nice chat, briefly spoke to Clare W, who had made a wonderful Sue Bow, sat with Milly and her friends from Poole Dorset who was 80 and dressed in Lilac and so lovely.
Well off for my swim, which has helped improved my knee greatly. Got to hit the craft room this afternoon as I am making the place names for the wedding. but I have a sneaky suspicion that I will be distracted by my new purchases Shh!!

Hi Sue
These cards are yummylicious!! I love the pretty three coloured bow on the first card which matches the coloured cones perfectly. On the second, the pva chocolate syrup is superb! Watched you demo this technique on c and c. Looks good enough to eat! Thanks for sharing.

Hi Sue and everyone, love the ice cream cards. The first one so reminds me of summer and the old fashioned cafe places, can't think of what they were called. As a teenager going on a Sunday afternoon with mates, lovely. The second card just as sweet, love the dripping chocolate.

Looks like everyone enjoyed their time at Ally Pally and most managed to meet Sue. Enjoy if going today

Thank you Pam for your kind thoughts for today. Thank you also for everyone who has sent me hugs, most appreciated. Lots of good news to for those with weddings, engagements,, animals so good wishes to you all.
Pam I will remember your Tim as I light my candle for my hubby today. Xxx

Happy Birthday Tim. Thinking of you Pam, another 1st to live through, it doesnt matter if you cry or not strong, for we dont ask why, we just hold you close until strength appears.

Rosemarie - our first Wilsonette wedding. Enjoy your little girls very special day. Im so excited yet pensive for you - wow what a milestone xx

Welcome to Wilsonette World Yvonne.

Ive really enjoyed reading stories from our lucky ladies that got to AP yesterday. I think I would have just gone into myself, forgotten my age and stood with mouth wide open as I reached Sue's stand ! Lol you sound like you all had a wonderful time and to our family going today, sounds like a double treat day, a two-fer and meeting our two-fer hero.

Both cards are fab. I must try to emboss through a thingy - err MASK, got it !!! Oh lordie brain wilting already ! Not a good sign considering its only 7.45 !
I hope you all have a good day if you can. To our family that hurt.
Love you all.

Good morning Sue today's cards are gorgeous so bright and cheerful those ice cream stamps are a must. I enjoyed Ally Pally yesterday. Sue your stand was so busy. I did get to have a brief chat with you and I saw a fantastic demo - thank you. There was so much going on and I spent loads. I failed to get the faux quilted leaves die it has been very popular. There is so much going on with blog followers my thoughts are with you all. Sue enjoy today at Ally Pally I bet you will be as busy as yesterday. I hope the clearing up goes well and you get home safely. Love Jackie

Victoria said...

I loved these stamps when you demoed them on TV. Such fun cards. The second card is really striking - great idea. Love the 'chocolate sauce' too - so realistic.

Sue from Wiltshire said...

Two cards so different but absolutely delightful. These new stamps look great fun and give a fresh, sunny and happy feel to the cards.

Good morning Sue, I hope you aren't too tired after your busy weekend. Your icecream card just made me hungry - I prefer the second one I think, though somehow, it's not quite 'you'

nancyd said...

Morning Sue, two fantastic cards not
very good to send to anyone on a diet
you just might tempt them. the second
one is very clean and crisp for someone
very minimalistic (not right spelling I don't think).
Thinking of you today Pam hope you are not too sad.

Hi Sue - two mouth-watering cards today, both are such fun and the second lends itself to so many ideas.

Had a great day at Ally Pally yesterday. Each time I came to your stand you were surrounded by so many - testament to your amazing crafting. You worked so hard and your demonstrations were brilliant. Enjoyed looking at all of your cards on display and spent loads - just need the time now to use everything. Enjoy your day today - best wishes

Hi Sue
Another two gorgeous cards today, the first one makes me want to go to the freezer for a bowl of ice cream! However, I feel it is probably a little too early for that. Sounds like everyone had a great time yesterday and that you were kept busy!!
Hope you have got some free time to relax next week.

Morning Sue, Here's hoping Ally Pally is going well with lots and lots of customers all flocking to your stall. Enjoy your day.
These cards are gorgeous, I'm so loving the 'ice cream colours' in the first one, very 'neapolitan'. Truly scrumptious.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Dearest Pam, my thoughts and prayers are with you on this celebration of Tim's Birthday.

Pauline A said...

GM Sue, Like Heather I wasn't too sure about the stamps either when I saw them on C&C but having seen the results of your cards close up today, I have changed my mind. The first one is so summery and the glitter flakes are gorgeous. Almost good enough to eat. Whilst I love the embossing folder on the second one, it's not 'busy' enough for me but the tiny ice-cream is cute. What a wonderful time you all appear to be having at Ally Pally. So envious but too far to travel .....maybe next year. Clare, I am going to let my better half read how much your husband 'enjoyed' his visit too so maybe next year I can persuade him to come with me. Hugs Pauline A x

nannapat said...

My taste buds are tingling now Sue. I've forgotten what ice cream tastes like, I've been on a diet for so long! Great cards, the C&S one is a great idea. Pat x

Hi Sue
Two stunning cards today. A card covered in Glacier ice. I assume this is new, as against your iced Snow. Love the ice creams and saw you demo these on C & C. Shame you were with Dawn Bibby who never lets the STAR guest get a word in edgeways. These cards are so different but both are lovely in their own right.
Have a lovely day Rosemarie the bride and yourself will be stunning. Happy birthday to Tim Pam and I'm sending you hugs. crafty hugs to Steph and Norah. Enjoy if your going to Ally pally you lucky girlies.

TOB said...

2 Sweet cards today, Love them both. Glad everyone enjoyed AP yesterday would have loved to have gone but too far from Barry where I live. (Gavin and Stacy land)Hubby is painting the kitchen
today, daughter out on an archery coaching day, looks like I will have to craft. (Such a shame)lol My thoughts are with you Pam. Have a good Sunday. hugs Theresa x

Sandra said...

Good morning Sue, today's cards look 'good enough to eat'! Deliscious, the Pva ice cream topping is just genius!
We had a fab day at AP yesterday, we got to meet and chat with Cameeli and her lovely friend, Cameeli how did you end up buying an EBosser?, like you said yesterday, would be great to live closer so that we could meet up for coffee and giggles on a regular basis!!
Spent some time watching and chatting with Sue too, which was lovely. But my goodness by far the busiest stand all day!
BSSS has to be the best craft show, most stands were proper 'get your fingers messy' craft stands, which is brilliant!
Hope all who go today enjoy it as much as we did!

Hi Sue,
Two very different cards today, the first is very summery, bright and "sweet", but the stamps are not for me though! However, the second one I love - such simple clean lines. Brilliant for a really quick card and the idea suitable for any occasion and for those pesky males! Hope you have another great day at Ally Pally. It sounds as though everyone really enjoyed themselves and pleased that some of you managed to meet up.
Pam, Tandy, Carol my thoughts are with you. Rosemarie, I hope you and especially your daughter have a fantastic day- I'm sure you I'll both look absolutely gorgeous. Steph , Norah and Lynne hope you are all feeling much better today. Love & hugs to everyone that needs them. Love Alison xx

I loved the first card when you showed in on C&C - it is really yummy! The ice technique is just stunning!

Hi Sue

Love both these cards, a must try. We had a lovely time at Ally-Pally yesterday , so nice to talk to all our inspiration's in the flesh, so to speak, spent more than i ought, but hey you only live once.

Best Wishes to everyone on this lovely sunny morning.

Hi Sue,
Love today's cards and I too should start to think about using apertures in my cards more. I'm so envious of all the lucky Wilsonettes who managed to get to AP and to actually meet you and each other. It's so much nicer when you can put a face to a name. Hope you have another very successful day and enjoy.

Hello Sue, Two fantastic summery cards, those cones are cute, the sauce looks real and the second card is so clean and fresh. My stitched flowers and other goodies arrived yesterday, can't wait to play. Sounds as though you all had fun at AP, lucky Jean P to get a photograph.
Pam Happy Birthday to your Tim, my thoughts and prayers are with you, Carol and Tandy.
Norah hope you are feeling better and congratulations on the engagement of your daughter's
Lynne M I was in stitches reading about the antics of the fur babies, typical girls not giving up, hope you are feeling better and having a good rest today.
Steph hope you hands are getting better, you poor darling, stay strong.
Rosemarie have a wonderful time on your little girls special day, lots of memories, hang on to the tissues.
Take care everyone.
Hugs June xxx

Hi Sue,
I have loved the cards this week, except for last one....the design is great and would work well with other stamps . I am not keen on the embossing folder, would have liked a different one. There is only so much that you can do with ice cream and I prefer to eat it lols. However your designs are beautiful, and thank you for sharing them.

Kiraneries said...

Hi Sue,I love the first card. A fun, fresh, bright and cute card. The second card I am not sure about.

Jackie Durrant said...

Your ice creams look good enough to eat Sue!! The first card is really super with the ice on it. Hope you are having a good time at Ally Pally, love from Jackie D

Norah McPhee said...

Good morning Sue and all my fellow Wilsonettes,
Please excuse my rudeness Sue, but i just wanted to let Pam, Tandy, Karen Lottie and Carol you are all going through a very rough day today that i am sending comfort hugs and prayers to each of them. I hope that they are surrounded by the people they love this day.
I love the first card very much as it so reminds me of the fascination of being a child and seeing all the different flavours of ice cream, my eyes going wide at what to choose first although Scottish cones have always been with a long stem on them(we like value for our money). My mum used to go to the ice cream parlours when she was courting my beloved dad, and in coffee shops. Those were the days when there wasn't as many PUB's of course and neither of them drunk, happy days. I have fallen in love with your pastel shades of card as it is so pretty and they are true colours, not pink with a hint of something. I have now two engagement cards to make today, one for my wee girl and one for my very special niece who i found out last night has got engaged on her birthday on Thursday, it's only taken her lovely Fiance 9years(he was being canny before doing it). And today of course we have a beautiful mother of the bride getting ready for her little girls big day ahead. Enjoy this very special day Rosemarie and just go with the flow and tissues a very good idea.
Pam flower, please don't think anymore about it as you didn't offend me, i think you have more pressing things on your mind that i wish i could do something to ease away that upset/trials oh i don't know what to call you feeling so alone, but Tim will always be close to you, he is in your heart and mind.
No it will not be a double wedding as we will have no say in my step daughters day. Her nibs, well that will be a few years away(hopefully as her dad is taking kittens just at the mention of engagement). And she has already told me before now that she will be picking my outfit as i wear old fuddy duddy stuff. I think my daughter forgets that i am not in my early 30's i am very close to 50, and i am not willing to go around as mutton dressed up as lamb thank you very much. And as for a titfer tat, i have memories of my mum's going flying off like a saucer on take off, so it will be something that i can anchor on or it will be just the hair which i suppose i will need to get done by a hairdresser,lord that will be the worse part of all. So as you see i hope that it is a time away in the future and i'll not tell you what his lordship is saying about when it should be.
Well time to drag the unwilling part of the body(that will be from the neck downwards in laymans terms) up the stair to sort out the room and put away all the washings. From a rotten day up at the Ochils i wish you all a very good day where ever you are,
Love and crafty hugs to all the special people on the blog,
Norah (Glenochil)

Gail said...

Well two very different cards and the second has given me an idea for an Easter card (which I have been scratching my head about) so may just have to use this as an idea xx GailT xx

Brenda Hanlon said...

Real fun and cute looking cards, hope the weekend is going well at Ally Pally.

Lindsay Martin said...

Good morning all, wow loved the ice cream card when you showed it on the tool shed last week, I'm sure I ordered the stamps from another out let but can't find a receipt yet for it and not arrived, my mind really is going! The second is so simple and is great for those men we sometimes have to do cards for.
Pam, Carol, Tandy and Karen lot tie thinking of all of you today, keep strong but not so strong you can't shed the odd tear, I'm sure your loved ones would want it that way. Norah, I'm so sorry I forgot to congratulate you yesterday, but now I can give you extra congratulations on the latest of your families engagements, busy times ahead for you all. I know what you mean about the hairdresser, I hate going, not been for a year now, and my daughter keeps nagging me that I have to go, never mind will just scrape it up and hide it under my cap!
Lynne, so glad you managed a lie in yesterday, you will have to tell my pooch what that is as he never lets me sleep in, far too much needs doing apparently, although he is now curled up on a chair totally out of it! Tell those hobnails to put some covers on them as your tired of them in your head, let's hope you can feel slightly better again tomorrow, and those girls if yours can find some more amusement for you. P in Wales still no foals, my daughter has decided they are all just to fat and not pregnant at all, maybe we can prove her wrong tonight! Steph and all others suffering, I hope you all get some relief from your pains today, am off to try and rest after reading the lovely but exhausting times those of you lucky enough to have gone to AP yesterday had, and Rosemarie just befor I go hope the wedding has gone well today, and that when you read this you can relax kick those shoes off and enjoy the moments you had today xxxx

Pearl said...

Wow Sue, two cards good enough to eat!

Love 'em both and must put the dies and stamps on my with list, which is growing ever longer.

Crafthappiness to you all, love from Pearl

jane stillman said...

What two contrasting cards. Love the first one - it looks good enough to eat! The second one is just so unusual. Enjoy your time at Ally Pally xx

Lynne Mills said...

Hi Alison, not so bad today thank you lol lynne m x x x

terrie said...

Yummy cards...they really turned out so nice and I like how the drizzle of chocolate on the triple ice cream cone...
Well done Sue!

Lynne Mills said...

Hi June, I swear they should be on the stage the way they ham it up!!!!. Having lots of rest today as hubby gets to look after poochies ( they have already shredded a box into mini pieces that took him ages to pick up) serves him right for saying they're little angels. Their halos have definitely slipped. Lol lynne m x x

Lynne Mills said...

Hi Lynda, was sure a foal would be here by now. Hubby does the early morning shift with poochies as they insist that 5:30am is the proper time for walks. Lol lynne m x x

Disco Queen said...

Gorgeous cards Sue! The top is my favourite. You can never have too much icecream ;-) Theresa x

camelot67 said...

Good afternoon Sue

Do hope that Ally Pally is going well - judging by todays comments everybody seems to have had a great time so far. Just loving todays "two-fer" cards - the first one looks so lovely and summery. Fab! Thank you for sharing these with us and I hope you enjoy the rest of your day.
Margaret A.

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, I know I'm in the minority again and much as I love ice cream, I'm sorry but these cards just 'don't do it' for me. Maybe it's because I don't have many small people to make cards for. I do love the chocolate sauce though!
So many long comments to read today I haven't time just now (meant to be finishing off Easter cards) but I will come back later and see how everyone is getting on and all the Ally Pally reports.

Sonia Stephenson said...

Hi. Fab cards today Sue - loving the ice creams, especially today as the sun is shining and it's hot :-) Hope you're having a great time at Ally Pally. Hugs xxx

SusanP, Kent said...

These look scrumptious! Very different from your usual style and great fun too. Love the way you've matched the ribbon colours to the ice creams in #1 and the dribble of 'chocolate sauce' on #2. Looking forward to the Wedding Show.

Joanna Dickson said...

I love ice cream Sue so yummy. Perfect for an ice cream lover. The second cards is very retro. I would love to just get inside your clever mind for a few hours so see if your ideas rub off on me. Luckily I have this blog to inspire me. Hope Ally Pally is buzzing. Lots of love, Jo xx

Barbara said...

Absolutely love both these cards today! They are so sweet and creamy looking and I could just go a bowl of Neapolitan ice cream.

dianeandchipps said...

What fantastic cards today, so full of fun xxx

Tres said...

Hi Sue. I love your two cards today !! The first one is my favourite, just gorgeous !! It looks good enough to eat, it looks very tempting. I love the pastel colours you have used, the lovely pastel ribbons and the cute little tag with the sentiment on !! As for the glitter, you just can't go wrong with that !! It looks fab. The second card is nice to but personally I think it looks a little to bare for me. It is still a lovely card though. X x x
Yesterday's card was amazing !! I loved everything about this one. I loved the mask so much, I bought it at the show. I did not get time to comment before I came to the show and when I got home I had to rest and do nothing for the whole evening as the illness kicked in. I still managed to go though and it was so worth feeling ill for !!

Well I went to your stand at the Alley Palley show yesterday and it was so crowded with people that I could not even see you !! I kept coming back at various times throughout the day but you always had loads of people around you !! With me being what my hubby calls "vertically challenged", I had to give up !! It was a wonderful though day and I went and watched Julia doing a demo and I saw Phill and Sam Poole too and it was great. I bought three of your new dies, two of your new embossing folders and three of your new stamps !! Then right at the end of the day as everyone was going home I came back to your stall one last time and there were only two people around. We have met only once before Sue, last year at Alley Palley. You looked up and you said " I recognise you! your name is Tres !! ( Teresa.) I could not believe that you remembered me !! We chatted briefly and you got someone to take a photo of us together !! My hubby took several to as I always look awful in photos. I always close my eyes or look drunk for some reason !! ( I hate having my photo taken. I just get nervous. ) You were fantastic Sue and I even got a hug !! You absolutely made my year Sue !! And you even liked my homemade Sue Wilson Rose, pinned to my top, even though it was my first attempt at making one. I had the best day ever and I can't wait to go again next year. ( hopefully.) I cannot thank you enough. X x x

To Pam, Tandy, Carole and Karrenlotty, I am thinking of you all today and sending lots of love and hugs x x x
Happy Birthday Tim x x x
To Steph, I hope your pain eases and you feel better soon. X x x
To Norah, Congratulations on the lovely news of your Daughters engagement !! X x x
To Rosemary, I hope you have a wonderful time at your Daughters Wedding today !! Enjoy yourself, I am
sure you will have a great day. X x x
Sending love and hugs to any one else that needs them today X x x

Lots of Love to you Sue and everyone love Tres x x x

magpie said...

Helloooooo Sue and all the Wilsonettes!! What wonderful "fun" cards today! Loving the ice cream cones...looking yummy! The pastel colours are lovely and sunshine spring/summery. Clever use of the chocolate shimmer glue! "Wow!" what wonderful exciting vibes from the wonderful Wilsonettes that went to Ally Pally! So chuffed that you had such a happy day. Can't understand why your stand was so busy Sue....cough cough! It's no surprise that you tried to make everyone's day by involving them and having photos taken. It's just who you are and it's wonderful! Hope you're having another great day today too x Pam, "happy birthday" to Tim and to Carol too. Thinking of you both. To Steph, Norah, (despite all you go through you makes us laugh so much x) and all who are hurting physically and mentally sending prayers, love and hugs too. Lynne M, lovely to hear about your fur babies. Aren't animals funny? Our budgies keep us laughing, they're not daft..... Rosemarie, I hope you've the proudest and most fantastic with your daughters wedding. Plus hope you've had the weather that we've had, sunny and warm. 'P' in Wales sooo glad that both you and your husband are feeling much better x Cameeli, wow, an ebosser and other goodies! Fantastic! Calling all credit cards, you WILL be on a shorter piece of elastic.......Lol! Love to you and your partner x Lyndsey, these foal babies have their own timing eh? Christine, hi! No I didn't think you were a nutter......but it does help...LOL! The reason for Magpie is I just love shiny things! My husband will tell you, anything that sparkles is not safe....hehehehe xx take care everybody xx Love Karen xx

Janice Robinson said...

Two cards today and both lovely.

Love the ice-creams especially the sparkly one.

Hazel said...

Sue, two beautiful cards, the ice cream looks good enough to eat.
I wish all the lovely ladies that went and saw you at the show and took photos had blogs!!! That way they could have put them up on their blog for us to go in and see them. They were all so lucky to have been able to go.
Hazel xx

Blue Rose said...

How dare you...I am an ice cream-holic...these cards are too yummy. I love them, love them, love them. And that chocolate sauce is over the top, I just want to lick it off...great, great, job.

Carol S. said...

Hi Sue, lovely to see you again At Ally Pally yesterday. Two great cards and the ice creams look yummy. Hugs, Carol S.xx

Janice Wallace said...

Sorry, Sue, but although I appreciate the techniques used, I am not an ice cream person, and these cards don't appeal to me. Probably will try the rainbow heart though, just minus the cone.
Thinking of everyone today, some having a fun day, others a much harder one. Hugs to all who need one.

yvonne masterman said...

hi can any of you nice ladies tell me the name of the mask that Sue used on her card yesterday. I have looked all over internet for it but couldn't find it. Yvonne xxx

Lindsay Martin said...

Yvonne it's a mask by that special touch, and it's called swirly frame, hope that helps, they have it in a bundle on C&C but I'm sure you will find it much cheaper on another site, just google it, will have a look for it on another site for you if you can't find it xx

Alice G said...

What bright and fun cards you have on today. I was fortunate enough to watch you demo them on your c&c shows. They are very realistic!

Hugs Alice xx

Myra P said...

Hi Sue,
Hi Everyone, Everyone who went to AP is High! I think!
It sounds as if you had a great time! How very like Sue to make everyone's day truly special!
Brenda it must have been lovely when Sue recognised you. How nice.
Thank you for telling us your news - Cameeli enjoy your E-bosser.
Tres - was so pleased you managed to go - take it easy for a day or two.
Clare - your husband deserves a medal - my husband says so ,so it must be true!
So many people are suffering pain at the moment - Steph, Norah ( congratulations on all your good news!), and many more. Love to all.
Pam - trust today was not only a sad day. X
Carol - likewise! X
Rosemarie trust today was a complete success with many happy memories made!
Sue - today's cards - I like the fun of the first one and agree about using the stamps for Invitations etc. the second is literally simply lovely. Will certainly pinch that idea for a man's card. The shape could be changed too.
Thanks again Sue. Trust you having a well earned rest! Maybe even a glass of bubbly!
Love to all,

Two great fun cards, love the colours in card one. Card two really shows off the lovely embossing folder a treat-the idea of stacking the ice cream is very clever and made me think of a photo of my son that would go so well with it on a layout.x

Brenda Lello said...

Hello Sue,
Been having computer problems left a long message to you and all our friends, only for it to go into cyberspace!!! Two beautiful cards, I have to say the second is my favourite.
Hope you have now been able to relax and also that you enjoyed your time at AP. I enjoyed my time, loved the way I saw you interact with the young girl and a very small child - as the song goes "children are our future" Sue I didn't know these children but it warmed my heart tremendously to see them reacting to you. If they weren't interested in crafts - they are now!
Take care love Brenda xxx

Pam - hope you got through today and had some support around you. You were in my thoughts, I lit a candle and prayed for you and Tim, I hope you felt the strength and warmth of your blog family around you.
Rosemary - I hope you've got lots and lots of lovely memories of this very special day and that you enjoyed every moment of it.
Tandy, Carol E, Karen Lottie - you have all been in my thoughts and prayers I hope you got through today. LOL
Steph - I so wish there was something I could do to help you, you are an amazing person and give so much to this blog, hang on in there.
Norah - congratulations on your daughters engagement, hope both your girls give you time to save up!!!
Clare W - so pleased you had a good day yesterday and your other half was not put off by all those females, sorry we didn't meet up but maybe next time!

Sandy H said...

Two fun cards. Don't have enough little ones to make cards for to warrant buying the stamps though.
Hope you get a chance to put your feet up tomorrow, Sue, after your busy weekend.

Angela Wade said...

Hi Sue,
The first card is lovely, done in all those pretty, pastel shades. It's a very different, but more modern looking birthday card. The chocolate sauce on card No 2 looks amazing, good enough to eat :-)

Congratulations to all Wilsonettes celebrating nuptials, engagements in your families and Best Wishes to all of you who are experiencing sad times right now.

Best Wishes, Angela in S.Wales
