Good morning crafters!  I thought I would share one of the cards made with the Spanish Collection today.  This is the Cordoba die set and it is unique in that it has an outer cutting die that leaves a pretty aperture that you can use.  I have cut the die out of coconut white card here and have added mounting foam to the aperture to raise it for dimension.  I love the way the open dots from the aperture really draw the eye in to the centre of the card.  I used the inside of the die cut and recessed it down on to peach card.  I cut the centre oval out of peach and added it to the centre of the card.  I stamped the sentiment and cut it out with the tag from the Spanish Collection and lightly inked it with Tattered Rose before removing it.  I mounted it in the centre with foam for dimension.  I used the Faux Quilled Blooms and cut several flowers out of peach card ad layered them up.  I seated the largest flower on a messy bow tied from white seam binding with which I decided to try an experiment  by cutting the loops in half.  It gives the overall finished bow a shabby chic appearance.  The remaining few flowers were scattered in the opposite corner.  I made a couple of pretty stick pins and added them to my bow.  The card was finished with a double white pierced mat with a thin peach mat in between.  Finished dimensions are 7" x 9" in size.  I hope you like it!

Thank you for all the wonderful hearfelt messages left for me yesterday!  It was a perfect weekend between the die shows being received so very well and the great big crafty hug I felt coming from everyone on the blog, thank you!  All for now, Sue x

Lilybet said...

Sue, WOW yet another masterpiece! I was in Devon at the weekend so gutted not at home to watch you on C&C. However, I quickly rang my son to ask him to set up recording the shows, so now you now what I will be doing today...whoop whoop!
I first met you at a show when you were promoting a range of stamps based on the older generation..I still have these and the various funny quotes that went with them. You said to me that you were new and really hoped people would like what you do..well that was many years ago and now and believe me we DO like what you do so keep doing it. Safe journey home, treasure your Mom (I am sure you do), and we will wait with baited breath for your return. xx PS This is my first blog EVER xx

Ecco of Sheffield said...

morning Sue
I really really need this die - it's so beautiful as you say either as the only die on a gift or with other dies playing a supporting role.
Today's gift is definitely the star of the show and the colouring just perfect.
Many Many congratulations on this week-end Sue - I just knew you would have all those sell outs and deservedly so as your dies are absolutely superb. One of the things I couldn't get my head round was just how big they actually are which of course makes them more than good value. They also eject the cut die so easily too which is always a bonus for us ladies who have little problems with hands and fingers etc.
Once again Sue many congratulations; many many thanks for all the inspiration you give/share with us every day. Our days are certainly made happier and adventuresome with you in them.
Take care on your journey to Mom; have a really good rest but come back very soon as we need you.
See you tomorrow.

Rosie said...

Your cards are just super. I love the Spanish Collection and I have three sets, including Cordoba. I also rate Seville, with its 4 dies, very highly!

Dawn Louise said...

Wow this is one pretty and beautiful card. Great trick with the bow. Will be putting that in to practise, thanks Sue have a marvellous day

TDQ Karen said...

Beautiful card, I think the Aperture idea is great and I think the Spanish dies may have to join my wish list, which gets longer by the day

Sandy G said...

Hi Sue
Another beautiful card. Love the colour and the way you have die cut a frame. The shows were fabulous. Really enjoyed them. Looking forward to the next lot of dies. Maybe a square background one..........? Thanks for sharing. Have a good day everyone.

Anne Crawford said...

Spanish Sunshine in a card! What will you think of next ? I always feel as though I'm solar powered ( when the sun is out it makes me feel energised) so this is a wonderful start to the day for me! Love the dies you have used here and especially the tag die in the centre ( think I'll have to order that one when pennies allow ) I did order the Valencia as I have the floral cartouche ( as you showed a sample of it, so must be a good choice ) and the first dies I ordered from your collection , the flowers ,the leaves and the heart striplet have certainly been a great buy, and so popular!
Congratulations to all the card winners ! I didn't manage to send in an email as I didn't manage to watch the shows live, still have the one with Leone to watch, so will enjoy that later, my daughter, son- in law and grandchildren head back to Edinburgh today and my husband and I have to go Inverness so maybe I'll get to view it in perfect peace tonight lol! Have a restful flight and wish your mum a great big Happy Birthday , enjoy!
Hugs to all, Norah I miss hearing how you and your hills are please let us know if you are ok, you do make me smile with your stories xo

Great card once again Sue, loving the new dies. Safe trip and Happy birthday to your mum xxx

cr@fty said...

Good morning Sue
Whoo! Whoo! I've got all the ingredients ( except the pins lol) to try out this card. The Cordoba die set were the second set of dies I bought ( Valencia was the first) and it's even prettier in real life. The tag from the Spanish collection is my favourite tag ever and it goes with every die I have. I'm not surprised your shows had sell outs I'm so pleased for you. Unfortunately I didn't get to see them but hopefully my recorder has worked so will watch them when I get home. I know you will have got some comfort from the response you received yesterday. Have a safe journey to see your Mom and wish her a very happy birthday from us. I'm already looking forward to your return .......... And your new dies lol.

Rose in Chester said...

Hi Sue,
WOW, this has to be one of my many favourites! It is divine, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the colours, the die and embellishments and could kick myself not having got Cordoba when I could. But I understand that Icon UK is going to get all your dies back in again tomorrow (so the announcement read), so I shall be there for definite as soon as they're available!
This is just one of your dies which cannot be had for love nor money anywhere on the internet (at least I've not found any), but it won't be for long.
Thank you for pointing out the obvious - if one has a rectangle one can also create a square. Tried that yesterday, very successfully.
Safe journey and my regards to your mom. Have a brilliant time and soak up the sun.
Hugs, Rose

GM Sue - it not yet 7.30 on Easter Monday and you have 31 comments already today - that speaks volumes in my book. Great shows yday - fabulous - you must be shaterred -so hope you have a safe and relaxing journey - wish I was that customs lady 'checking' thro your crafty bag you spoke of - I am trying to imagine what the french or austrian collections might contain - delights galore I expect.
Love today's card - those spanish backgrounds are to die for.

Dawn Searle said...

Morning Sue, Stunning card today and I cannot wait to receive my dies. I had a lovely day at my sister's yesterday, really funny watching my niece's children in the garden doing an Easter egg hunt in the pouring rain. Nothing was going to deter them. Even their dog found two, but promptly ate them, much to their disgust!!
Your generousity amazes me as you post everyday without fail and describe to us it such detail how to make the card that you show that day, enabling us to try and replicate it. Have a wonderful trip to see your mum and I am sure she will be so pleased to see you. I too wish her a very Happy birthday xxx

Hi Sue. Another wonderful card, I love how the outer die works, and also how you cut the ribbon.
You can get on the plane and relax I hope, knowing how proud we all are of you:) You have been very busy, and you are going to be busy while "over the pond" enjoying time with your Mom and making cards with the prototypes of your second release of dies, how exciting for us all! :)) Remember to grab some rest though. Please give your Mom my love and also my very best wishes on her birthday. I'm sure she has a wonderful celebration with her family and friends : ) I hope you have an easy flight Sue.
X for Pam, you are doing so well. Welcome to Lilybet, lovely to see you here : )
Norah, I hope you are ok, we are missing your daily update.
Take care.

jean.phillips1 said...

Morning Sue, gorgeous card, so glad your dies went down well on C&C but really there was no doubt that they would! I managed to catch the morning show and did send in an email, but could 't watch the 2pm show as I had unexpected visitors, a dear friend from South Africa who had been visiting Bath with her new partner and daughter! So nice to see old friends and have a catch up! Hope you have a good flight, happy birthday to your Mom when it is her birthday. Take care. Love Jean xxx

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes. A warm welcome to Lilibet and to any new family that join and read about Wilsons World this bank holiday Monday, look forward to your regular input.
Im hoping by now that you are high above us, and unwinding and looking forwatd to getting 'home' I know you said you will be making lots of samples with your new prototype dies, and due back mid June but I really hope they unlock the craftroom door so you can take lots of sunny relaxation ! I know how thrilled you would have been by lots of positive comments yesterday. We are here for one reason - YOU.
I just love todays card, elegant and delicate, and such pretty colour's. Im so chuffed as Mr Lancashire knows how much pleasure crafting gives me so knew I would appreciate a 'metal' egg and it was the Cordoba, and I saved and treated myself to the feux quilled flowers at your first launch, so Im delighted to see I can try and do something similar (Id never make anything this good) !
Your shows were beyond perfect, congratulations Sue.
Sending love n hugs to our family.
Lancashire Steph xx

Morning Sue, No doubt your suitcases are overflowing as you try to decide whether or not you can get the kitchen sink in as well. Oh. no Sorry.... that's me whenever I travel abroad. Hope you have a lovely time with your mum and wish her a very Happy Birthday from all of us. Love the peach and white colours in today's card. I'm thinking that I really will have to get those Spanish dies. I dithered about getting them on your first show but ordered the Italian collection instead. Still, they are something to look forward to buying in the future. Your stick pins are lovely. Take care. Pauline A x

Morning Sue and everyone from Edinburgh. Many, may congratulations on the success of your dies shows - absolutely merited and not a surprise for they are stunning. Needless to say, I was tempted and bought far ore than I had intended but what a wonderful investment. I missed out on the Italian set and am hoping they are back soon. Thanks for all the inspiration. I have no doubt our next set will be equally lovely.

Have a safe trip and best wishes to your Mum!

Norah McPhee said...

Good morning Sue and fellow Wilsonettes,
What a beautiful card Sue and to have made the stick pins to match just finishes it off. The colour of the peach and white together is a lovely cosy, warm combination.
Folks, i haven't been on because i felt that i had been the cause of all the horribleness that went on the other day and if i had seen the 2 posts before i commented i wouldn't have. I wrote to Sue and explained because i didn't want her thinking i didn't care, when it was because i felt i had been the cause of her tranquility in her blog being ruined. I really felt i had real friends here, but i broke down into floods of tears every time i tried to come on. Thank you for missing me as i seriously didn't think that anyone would notice me not here and i did think it was for the best for Sue, her blog and you folk as i did not want you hurt even more than you had been, i hope you understand.
From my beautiful hills and me thank you. Take care everyone,
Love and crafty hugs
Norah (Glenochil)

Lovely card this morning, I didn't get to see the shows yesterday as I was cleaning the garage out, I can now park my car in it., but by the sounds of it it was a successful show.

Alison Couchman said...

Beautiful, simply beautiful. So much detail in this die as in so many of your collections. They all offer something we can't get anywhere else. Still have my little stash of videos to watch as have been busy prepping for classes I'm teaching this week. Will treat myself to one later today.
Donna - watch Sue's videos as several of them show her signature pierced edge. Click on the link on the right hand side or search for Creative Expressions on YouTube. I think there's a tutorial at the top of her blog too.
Enjoy the last bit of the long weekend. The sun is finally out here in Suffolk!

This card again shows off your dies at their best. I like the idea of cutting the loop on the binding in half, nice effect. The shows over the weekend were SO enjoyable and inspiring. Your cards seem to be getting even more gorgeous.

Morning Sue! I've been a reader of your blog for many months but this is just my second post. It was lovely to see your joy in the way your dies flew out over the weekend - though no to surprise to any of us! I already had a couple of your dies and couldn't resist another one and some stamps - they are all gorgeous! Your shows and blogs have helped me to really improve my card making and it's clear that you have a lot of people on this blog who are thrilled for your success. Have a great time with your Mom.

Hello Sue

Your new range of dies are truly scrumptious.

Another beautiful card to treat us with.



Brenda Lello said...

Good morning Sue,
What a stunning card, I love the Cordoba die is just beautiful - it was one of the 'I need its' at Ally Pally, the results are stunning.
So pleased you had so many positive comments on the blog yesterday, you are a lifeline to so many people and really appreciated.
Have a safe journey, love Brenda xxx

Norah please keep blocking you keep so many others entertained with your lovely stories LOL

Pam said...

Oh Norah, you have broken my heart that you could think you were the cause of all "the horribleness" as you put. You with your lovely funny witty kind hearted manner and your beautiful stories. We all think the world of you and have missed you terribly. Please dont ever stop coming to the blog again. We are all one big family and sometimes families have disagreements, we just have to ignore them. Tres, if you are thinking the same, take Norah's lead and come back to us.

I love this die, it was the first one from your new collections that I bought. I was going to make one like this in soft pink today but may now attempt something similar in bright pink. Have a great time in the states, can't wait to you get back - I am suffering from Wilson withdrawal symptoms already

Morning sue, thank you so much for sharing with us all your fantastic talent! I loved the shows, just wish the presenters would shut up sometimes and let you do what you are so good at! Today's card is beautiful, another one to write down to have a go at when the die arrives, safe journey home to your mum, love Janet k xx

lorraine (classylady) said...

Morning Sue and all. Happy Easter Monday to everyone.

This is a stunning card Sue and I wish I had my new California dies from weekend as I am struggling to make a pearl wedding card for my Brother and Sister In Law and now on 3rd version.

Sorry I am so behind with posting for various reasons and saw your comments after yesterdays card. I don't what came before but I know that you are a kind and gracious lady with an extremely big heart, and nothing you have done would cause people to stop posting. Sometimes it is hard to post for a variety of reasons,and therefore some only drop in now and again. For others it may be a lifeline to the people they call friends. When I have time I love to read what is going on in others lives, especially about Norah's hills. Turns out I don't stay very far from there in Scotland but had to ask someone where they actually were. LOL They say you learn something new everyday

Thank you for your consideration to us Sue. Safe journey and love to your Mom.

ElizabethS said...

Morning Sue, beautiful card as always. I have to admit that the outer edge cutting die is one of my favourites, absolutely stunning and unique.
Have a wonderful time with your Mom and safe journey.

Jackie Durrant said...

good morning Sue, I have just been catching up with your cards over the last few days as I have been away and didn't see them or your shows unfortunately but at least with the wonders of modern technology I can watch them on Craft extra. I'm not surprised that everyone was a winner - we knew that from the start!! and I know I'm not alone in waiting for the next release. All the cards I missed are so varied and today's is so sunny. Thank you for all you do to bring us inspiration and words of wisdom. I would miss your blog if it closed. Having noted the some of the comments over the past few days perhaps a forum would be a good place for folk to communicate. I only read those from a few names I have got to know otherwise with so many followers I would never get anything done!! Have a super time with your mum and I hope she has a wonderful birthday, love from Jackie D

Hi Sue

Hi Sue
Have followed your blog for a couple of years, and have never new how to leave a comment. Thank you for putting the instructions on the side bar. I have to say looking at your beautiful card each day gives me great inspiration. I am to retire in a few weeks time and hope to have more time for my crafting. The card to day is lovely as always. Hope you have a good Holiday with you Mum.
Best Wishes

Pinky said...

Morning Sue

This is lovely and happens to be with one of your dies that I have so just got to find a window to give it a try!

Had too much going on lately to even watch the weekend shows but they're all recorded so I can have a full day of crafting with you in the room!!

Have a good holiday

Cards2Di4 said...

Hi Sue.
I stupidly posted this comment on yesterday's blog by mistake - that's what comes of crafting until the early hours!! So here it is again...
I've been looking at your blog every day for some time now - indeed it's the first thing I do each morning - but I haven't commented until recently because I (stupidly again) couldn't work out how to do it!!
You never fail to inspire me with your wonderful skills and your caring, sharing approach to card making. Thanks so much for this.
I can't promise to comment every day but you can be assured that I will be looking at your beautiful cards and learning new techniques from your instructions and fantastic videos.
Hope you have had a lovely Easter and have a great time with your mum in Florida.

Best wishes

Debbie Kennedy said...

Good Morning Sue, what a wonderful card as always. I have been glued to the shows over the weekend as the Dies are really to Die for (pardon the pun). Hope you have a wonderful time celebrating your mums 91st Birthday. Looking forward to seeing you again on our screens.

Sandra said...

Good morning Sue, I hope you are sat relaxing as you soar above us on your journey home to Mom, I bet you just can't wait to see her! Please spend some time relaxing.
We will all be patiently waiting for your new creations and the sneak peaks of the new dies, I can't wait!
Beautiful card today, stick pins really set it off!
Safe journey,
Huge hugs,

Hello Sue
Love the card and the c/craft programmes!
Have a safe journey home to your mum!
Thank you Shirley for my Birthday wishes!
Take care

Mary Burton said...

Hi Sue,
A lovely design again, I imagine it working well in any colour way too. The larger piercing around the aperture is so effective, I know how much you love a pierced edge! And the flowers are so delicate, they add a subtle lacy touch which is so chic and feminine. Looking forward to the next instalment.

Lynn (delphinoid) said...

Stunning Card Sue!

I love the Spanish die collection, although I love all the collections, and I really like the colours you've used for this card, they are lovely.

Happy Crafting!!! :) X X

Lacelady said...

Good Morning Sue and all the Wilsonettes, it was a great weekend, having you on so many C&C shows was a real treat. I succumbed again yesterday and ordered one of your bow sets of dies, so now I have four sets on the way. Have a great Bank Holiday, a safe trip, and give Mum a crafty hug from me. Please wish her a Happy Birthday too - fancy 5000 Wilsonettes sending her good wishes! (sorry, forgot to say I loved today's card too.)

Carol S. said...

Wow Sue this is stunning. Love the colour and the design. Happy Easter Monday and enjoy the unscheduled day off! Hugs, Carol S.xx

samantha wade said...

Wow, what a card, the colour is quite different, love it and the pins match so well, I do love it when I have the right beads. Your dies look great too.
Have a wonderful time with your mom, you deserve a rest, xx Sam.

iReneM said...

Yet another stunner, Sue.

Love the 'holey' border to the aperture and your beautiful embelies as always.

A great idea cutting the bow loops - gives a nice, fuller look without the bulk. Gonna try this, :)


Gail said...

Stunning card again and luvly feminine colour combo xx I have the Spanish border/corner and tag set and looking at how you have used the tag part it looks fab inked through the die xx only had a practice at cutting out with white card but hoping to make a card for my Niece and Sister from them (need to get my thinking cap on) xx GailT xx

Jane said...

Just divine lovely card. Have a safe journey and a happy birthday to your mum.

Morning Sue, I hope you are safely on your way now.
Another Gorgeous card. Congratulations on the Weekend shows.We all knew you would have all those sell outs, deservedly so,as your dies are Fabulous.
I tried to beat the rush and got my order in for quite a few of the dies and stamps on Friday night.Glad I did!!
Safe trip home,Please wish your Mum a Happy 91st Birthday xx

Sonia Stephenson said...

Hi. Beautiful card again today. Love the colours, the beautiful flowers and your gorgeous fancy stick pins. Had a go at making some myself a few weeks ago. Was quite chuffed with them and definitely need to have another 'fancy stick pin making session'. Have a lovely trip back home. Hugs xxx

Kiraneries said...

Hi Sue, a stunning card. Your dies are beautiful. I enjoyed your shows and not surprised so many sell outs. A safe journey home.

June said...

Sue another wonderful, wonderful card. Could I ask a question please, I notice that you use quite a lot of pearls around the outside of your cards especially when layering (it is a good marker as well), I was wondering if you made them yourself if so what do you use, perfect pearls? or something like that or are they ones that you can buy and are stuck on (I don't think they are though). Every day I so look forward to seeing your cards and could watch you for hours making them. Thank you again so much for sharing them with us all. Much love June xxx

jane stillman said...

Loved the shows over the weekend Sue, so glad they were so well received. Your card today is absolutely stunning and love the bow. Enjoy your time with your Mum, take care xx

Lindsay Martin said...

I love this card Sue, but at the moment can't make one similar as this is the only set I don't have now after splashing out on the Italian collection on Saturday, the Californian collection has been with me since your launch of them and are Ll worn out with the use I give them ;-) as soon as I can save the pounds these will be he next on my list, I hope to be able to purchase the all before you tempt me with new ones, no longer buying spellers, as I just want yours for their versitility.
Norah, I so happy you are back with us, don't you dare leave us again you cheer up everyone's days with your stories. Pam it's great you are getting stronger, Cameeli you make me chuckle regularly too, Steph, wow a meta, Easter egg, well done to Mr Lancashire. Lilybet, Donna, Claire, annRD, GeeBee88 and Cards2Di4 lovely to see you all commenting and keep doing it, Claire W hope your well, Lynne how r those fur babies, oh and Norah in case you missed it foal number one a lovely filly was born on Friday night at 10.15, mother and baby are both doing well am now on tenterhooks waiting for number two! Take care all Wilsonettes, have a great Bank Holiday Monday and hope the sun is shining for you all xxx

Lindsay Martin said...

June I've just read your comment on Sue's pearls around her cards, she uses Cosmic Shimmer coloured glues, normally the pearl one, just drop it on to the card with out touching it with the nib of the glue, then wait for it to dry, practice it on a spare piece of card to make sure you can get the dots the size you want them xx

Caron28 said...

Another stunning card Sue. Have recorded your shows to watch, can't wait. Happy Easter Monday to you. xx

nannapat said...

Great shows again yesterday Sue, you must be so pleased with the positive response to your dies and stamps. Have a great trip to Florida to see your mom, I hope she has a wonderful birthday. Pat x

Meg said...

This has got to be my all time favourite card Sue.
Everything about it is just so lovely.

When you get around to designing some more dies Sue could you think about doing another with the design on the inner edge - I've only seen one other by another company and it wasn't the shape I wanted. Yours would be better I'm sure.

Make the most of your break with family.

Hi Sue
Fantastic shows over the weekend - now I will go back and watch the demos again - really inspiring!!
Looking forward to your next collections - is one going to Kazygstan? LOL (yeah I know that spelling doesn't look right - would be a good laugh when the presenters have to keep interrupting with updates!!!)
Your blog is marvellous and I usually visit work days while having my breakfast! I'm so pleased for you the Collections were such a huge success - but we knew they would be when you first released
them here on your blog!
All for now - enjoy the rest with your mom.

Fabulous card today. The peach is such a delicate shade yet shows off your wonderful die to perfection. The tag surrounded by the Faux Quilled Blooms makes a lovely focal point.
I watched both shows live yesterday and recorded to watch again (one guilty pleasure I'm not about to forgo)!
Have a safe flight and good wishes to your Mum.

Jan said...

Just love all your work Sue and your cards are always quite literally just breathtaking.

terrie said...

This card turned out so nice...what beautiful dies that you used to make the card...
I saw your show on C&C and you did a wonderful job...
Well done Sue!

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, as others have said before - we are running out of superlatives to describe your cards - so I will say today's card is just delightful. I am really leaning towards the Spanish collection as they are so adaptable.

Welcome back Norah, I was getting the rescue party ready in case you had been kidnapped and locked up behind those high wire fences next to you :-)

Sue, hope your flight is uneventful and you arrive at your mum's rested and relaxed. Enjoy your time away but don't forget to come back to us!

deniseann said...

Hi Sue, Yes love this one(and most all of them ) Cordoba's the next one on my list. Love the delicate colour.

Nina Spear said...

Hi Sue, had a wonderful time watching all your lovely cards and demos over the weekend. You are a truly inspiring lady! Have a good trip to see your mom, can't wait for the next lot. Today's card is just one example of the lovely ones you make and I would love to have just a smidgeon of your talent.

Jan Caven said...

Hi Sue
What a sad day for us as you have left us for sunnier climes. We will be counting the days till your return.

The shows were a knockout and am so pleased you had all those sellouts, but not at all surprised, you are one talented lady.

Today's card is a smasher, I have the Cordoba die and it is stunning. Will definitely have a go at this one and the colours are so lovely.

Have a safe flight and big hugs for you Mom and wish her Happy Birthday from me. I know she must be a special lady as she gave us you.
Enjoy yourself.
love Jan x x

Tina Eldridge said...

Hi Sue,

Such a stunning card today, I love the peach. Since you started making cards with your own dies, dare I say it, your cards are even more beautiful, if that's at all possible. All your hard work paid off for you at the weekend, and although I was'nt quick enough on C&C I did find a couple else where. I guess lucky lady you are now on your way to see your lovely Mom & family. Wish your Mom health & happiness on her 91st birthday, and enjoy yourself too, and don't work too hard. Safe journey.

Welcome Lilybet, you will enjoy this lovely blog family.

Cooooo Eeeeeee Norah, please come back, we really miss you. We all want to know about you and your fab son, and if he is enjoying his Easter. How's them there hills of yours? X

For all the ladies that sent wishes for my daughters wedding, I have put some pictures on my blog today, so just click on to Berekley's picture. Thank you all again. X

Hi Sue,
Yet another stunning card, I'm running out of adjectives to describe your designs, but love them all.
Loved the shows over the weekend, although I was working and had to record them, so up late last night!!
Have a safe journey home.
Regards, Sheila

Hi Sue
Such a stunning card absolutely wonderful so rich and delicate looking, a true Wonder of Wilson as Steph would say!
Oh Norah so pleased to see your message today I was getting worried thanks for coming back, we love your tales truly we do, a special hug just for you darling.
As one door closes another one opens I believe, let us all hope the door is firmly closed on the sad happenings of the last week, and look forward to a fresh new week of friendship, laughter and fun as we craft in the style of Sue.
Warm wishes and hugs to those who need them.
Margaret corgi owner
