Sneak Peek

Hello bloggers!  Yes, I know, I have ventured into murky territory today with an offering of Christmas!  I did pick the least Christmassy card that I could find though so as not to put your poor sensibilities into shock this early in the year!  However, it is Christmas in June on Create and Craft this week and that is what I am doing on my shows Sat. and Sunday.  There are some really lovely Justrite stamps on the show and they have also allowed me to bring back my Finishing Touches line of dies!  Those sold out very quickly in April when they were on and we have just recently gotten them back in stock.  If you have been on the hunt for the Classic Rose, Faux Quilled leaves or blooms or any of the 3D bow dies, they are all on the show!  I went with black and white with this one (I know it does look like cream, but it is white) just to keep it simple.  I, myself,  had to ease into the Christmas card realm when I started these back in April, nothing too blatantly seasonal until I had gotten a few cards done and under my belt!  For this card I started with the focal element and stamped the Merry Wishes Labels Seven image in black Archival on to coconut white card.  I used the sentiment from the Christmas Mix and Match sentiments and added it to the centre.  I lined up the die over the image and taped one side into place, then folded it backwards to create a hinge.  I covered it with a sticky self adhesive piece, then flipped the die back down and taped it into place and cut it.  I peeled the backing off and coated it with Iced Snow.  I cut one of my California Collection Decorative frames and seated it on top with mounting foam.  I cut a Mystical Embrace die out of white card and seated both die cuts in the middle of it.  Using a slightly larger piece of white card, I ran double sided sticky tape around the edges and trimmed the excess off and coated it with Iced Snow as well.  I matted it with a thin black mat.  The card is very blingey so I decided to keep it simple and not add any flowers or bows this time.   I finished the card with a double white mat with a pierced inner mat and added white pearls to the corners and die cut as accents.  Finished dimensions are 6 1/4" x 8 1/4" in size.

I hope you can tune in tomorrow at 9am, 12 noon and 6pm and on Sunday at 11am, 2pm and 7pm to see the rest of the samples and demos.  I would love to get your emails sent in too.  All for now, Sue x

CraftyAnn said...

A beautiful card without being 'over Christmassy', ideal for people who like to celebrate Christmas but not all the hype and razzmatazz. So looking forward to the shows, I've planned to do nothing, just sit, watch and learn.
Have a great time.
Take care.

Good morning Sue and everyone. Very Christma-Classy and elegant, you were so right not to add any other embellishments, it just doesn't need any. Magic box is set for all your shows but hopefully I'll be able to watch live too. Hope the jet lag hasn't hit too hard.
Congratulations to Norah and Jackie on being blog hop winners. Sue xxx

Great card-sentiment could be changed for a non christmassy one if needed. Lovely gentle nudge towards making christmas cards!

GM Sue - love it - it's a must try! Will be watching your shows and will email in if I can.

Craft Room Sorting is nearly done!!! Just a few bits n bobs to sort thro later today and then I am organised - everything is labelled as I've moved stuff about so much i'd never find anything in a few days time if not. Even my bit box has been filed into colours and sizes - not for long though I suspect!
Happy Friday all

Hi Sue love the card and the bling. You are right it just speaks for itself and doesn't need a bow or flowers. Looking forward to your shows at the weekend. Have one last relaxing day before you start again . Love Diane G xxx

Anonymous said...

Lordy, Sue, you gave me a fright - thought I had missed a day, but it is still Friday!! Will tune in tomorrow. Longest day for all of us and a very busy one for you!
Love today's card, so elegant and classy. Don't have that die which is gorgeous but could do similar.
It's really a non-Christmasy Christmas card, just right for slowly getting into the groove.

'P' in Wales

Julie Laz - sorry to hear you're still having a tough time - sending big hugs and hope you feel better soon.

Nanna Tina said...

Hi Sue
Stunning Christmas card, I will be watching all weekend for some new ideas for my Christmas cards.
I had a lovely scan photo yesterday of my first Great- Grandchild, my stepson's step daughter is expecting her first baby 21st December so one Christmas gift on its way.
I have an x-ray appointment today to see if I can carry on with the injections in my hands, if they are worse then a referral to a hand specialist is on the cards to see what can be done with the possibility of surgery, my crafting is restricted with the arthritis so hoping this will not mean more problems would hate not been able to craft at all.
Love and hugs to all and hope you all have a lovely day.
Happy crafting
Love Tina x x

Patricia Howarth said...

Morning Sue, A lovely card, although I, for one, don't even want to think about the 'C' word hahaha.
I have already ordered a couple of packs of your card from tomorrow's show, I will have to wait to see the pictures of the stamps haha !!
So glad you got back home safely, although I think you have probably got jetlag as in your 'write-up' you say you are on C&C 'today' !!!
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Good Morning Sue. Not too Christmassy. Beautiful card. Looking forward to all your shows.

barbiepinkfairy said...

Classy! Change the sentiment could be used for any occasion. Xxx

cr@fty said...

Good morning Sue
You got me all excited this morning thinking you had extra shows but no, just a case of jet lag. Mind Sue it's no surprise with all that you do, if you could only bottle your energy I'd be the first in the queue to buy some lol. There can never be too many Christmas card ideas for me I make so many. Today's card is gorgeous! you've put a Christmas sentiment on but it can be used for other occasions just by changing the sentiment. Although it's a white card It's a cream colour on my screen and I love it. I'm really looking forward to your shows I tried to see what you have but they haven't listed anything yet (very wise because there won't be anything left lol)

Mrs B said...

Hi Sue. I hope you had a good journey home and aren't suffering with jet lag. I love seeing Christmas cards early in the year now that I make my own, the only downside is that I see so many that I want to make! This is a real beauty to start off this years offerings : ) Love the subtle sparkle and the sentiment. I finally managed to get your Classic Rose, Faux Quilled leaves from Joanna Sheen just a couple of weeks ago but so pleased that you have them on the shows tomorrow as lots of others are still trying to get them. I will be recording all of the shows as we am taking 12 of my Beaver Scouts to a small theme park for the day tomorrow and then we will be sleeping at the Scout Hut, they will leave at 10am on Sunday so if we can get tidied up fast I may make the 11am show live. I will try and email you early though Sue. I hope you have a great time on the shows and get some lovely presenters. (Does anyone know if C & C will put emails into the right shows cup of chance if you send them earlier?)
Pam, sending my daily hug to you:)
Hugs to Norah, Jean, Gail, June, Julie Laz and all in need. Julie Laz, you are going through a bad patch at the moment aren't you, you poor thing. I hope you are back to normal very soon. A word of warning, make sure you come off of the Oxycontin etc. very slowly or you will suffer all over again! When I first started on the heavy duty stuff I tried a couple of different sorts and tried to come off the first lot too quickly, thinking it would be ok as I hadn't been on it very long. That was not a good idea!!!
Norah, You made me laugh imagining the white patch after sunbathing while knitting:) I always have to be doing something too, sadly can't make cards because the papers fly around : ( Enjoy your sunny hills today, it isn't very bright here at the moment, not sure what it's going to turn out like!
Have a good day everyone. Take care.

Heather Rogers said...

April! You hav definitely beaten me this year! ROFL! Lovely card though Sue. As someone has already said it is great for those who are looking for subtle and understated.

I must admit you got me out of bed very early today checking your show times. I thought I had got it all wrong, as you said you were on today!!!! No! I said to myself I have not set the recorder!!

Anyhow panic over and so breathed a sigh of relief over a very early coffee as I realised you were ahead of yourself bless you. So excited about the shows I expect and JustRite stamps are great to work with so clean cut as are yours Sue. Can't wait to see what you have brought us.

Bet Mom feels lost without you I know I always do when family have stayed and then gone home. You are lucky, I know you realise this, to be able to still see your lovely Mom so much.

Try to get a rest before tomorrow! What am I saying this is you, it's not going to happen is it???

Morning Sue
I am so pleased that you are back home andI really look forward tou your shows. I panicked when I read your blog ad thought I had lost a day somewhere!

I couldn't get much inspiration, but today's card certainly has it is beautiful as always.
Have a lovely day everyone, hugs to everyone

Alison Couchman said...

A beautiful card Sue, although I refuse to read the sentiment! Not a fan of that particular season due to pressure from my Mum to supply her with a PERFECT day like you see in the ads on TV. Ugh!!
The large die is gorgeous and while not generally a fan of bling it works really well on this one. Teaching silk painting for beginners this afternoon so off to pack up all the kit.

Ecco of Sheffield said...

morning Sue
Thank you Sue for today's gift and for easing in the C.theme.
I've been packing all week my papecraft ready for my French summer and guess what my main task is during this time Christmas! As I make well over 100 cards for family/friends/and a local charity I have to start early and so I sit outside and craft.
Today's gift is in my 'less is more' mode and I just love love it. I've bought the crystal bling to use this year. Doesn't it make a beautiful snow.
Well cleaning day today and hopefully a little craft (I have a bit of embroidery I need to finish off).
Will have my box set to record Sue tomorrow and Sunday.
Norah - I informed him yesterday that it's not just me that needs to take crafting with me and that many of my crafty friends (my sisters here)do too so he might just as well accept it. (I have to admit he's really wonderful and made me the most fantastic 'craft cupboard' last year while we were over there but of course we don't tell him that). My knitting bag also goes and it's amazing just how much can be fitted in isn't it!!!
Take care everyone and see you tomorrow.

Hi Sue
My word Sue a stunning Christmassy card today. I was all excited thinking you had extra shows on today. Went to c & c to record but it was just your jet lag catching up with you. I also do t mind Christmas cards in June as it gives me some inspiration for mine. Hope you had a good journey home. This card is so nice, and doesn't look to Christmassy at all. Hugs as usual to Pam, Norah and Steph. Hope you are doing well after your stay in hospital Steph.not to good here in Witney at the moment. We're off to Gt Oakley (up near Harwich) tomorrow for a week. So won,t be able to blog as usual. As our friends don't have wifi.

Anne Crawford said...

A very beautiful Christmas Card! But I can't think of that season yet as I'm Still waiting for Summer! While you've all been sweltering in the sunshine we have been having misty rain with a teasing glimpse of sun just to show us what we are missing!
Recorder all set for tomorrow, can't wait!
Special hugs to Tina and Julie and all others in awful pain, did enjoy your story yesterday Norah ,I could just imagine it! Lol!

Hi Sue
Love this simple card, I liked it so much I didn't realise it was a Christmas card until I read some of the comments. I do find doing Christmas in the middle of our short summer rather depressing, I love love the summer, so I'm out side. I make all my Christmas cards in January while I still feel the Christmas joy.

Sam Smithard said...

Hi Sue, I may be on my own here but I love making my Christmas Cards as early as possible, as we go on Holiday late in the year! and don't return until October and I have so many to make I have to make a head start, it's like my Birthday Cards I always do the whole years in the first three months so not to worry, with making Christmas Cards I Love It.
Today's Card is Quite Stunning I love The Black and White Colours. You've chosen for today's project, I Love how you've gone around the edge of your Card with a edge of The Beautiful Iced Snow (Stunning) I Love The New JustRite Christmas Stamps as I've checked them out on-line and there really Fabulous, I Love how You've Stamped in Black Archival Ink then placed a sticky sheet on top, then removed and placed the Iced Snow on top Truly Stunning!
Then placing your Sentiment on your California Decorative Frame Collection Die, then The Die Behind is Truly Beautiful Mystical Embrace Die so Beautiful, of course I will Watch and Tape all your shows and like all I'm so looking forward to them, Sadly there's one Show on Sunday I'm not a lover of The Presenter! so I will more than likely only watch the taped version as it's the Demos I wish to see, but that's just my opine.
Sue Thank You for your Stunning Card The Fantastic Breakdown The Fabulous Photography, The Tips and Techniques, but most of all The Daily Inspiration you bring to Me! and Thank You For Blogging Daily Every Day Of The a Year It's The First Thing I Do Even Before My Drink in a morning, I Open Your Blog To Check Out Your Projects and Video's.
The reason I go through all the items you've used etc: and how you've used them it really helps me to remember how to achieve and understand how you make the Card.
Sue Take Great Care
Love and Hugs
From Sam x

Absolutely stunning Sue and as already been said could be a card for any occasion. Goo luck with the weekend shows I'll be watching. Hope you won't be feeling too tired after travelling home from your Mum's and then 6 shows on C&C. It will be good to see you back on our screens though.

Good morning. Typical that it's lovely and sunny outside with all the Christmassy stuff going on on the TV. I love that stamp, as isn't that what we wish everyone! xx Maggie (better without a bow)

Norah McPhee said...

Good morning Sue and fellow Wilsonettes,
I really love today's card Sue as it isn't too over the top Christmas and yet it sparkling beauty is just so pretty. The mystical embrace die is one of the most beautiful that SB has brought out i think, i feel in love with it the minute that i saw it.
Julie, i am so sorry that you are going through such a bad patch at the moment. Living with an illness is bad enough but when it intensifies, boy oh boy it's 10 times worse. Glad our wee messages perk you up that wee bit, but you are a Wilsonette and being a member of this exclusive club means you are part of a very special family and we care for all. I hope our honorary Wilsonette Lee is fine. You will be back to normal soon(fingers crossed) and be able to enjoy crafting again. You are just storing up all the lovely projects that you want to do.
Oh Lynne, i am with the pesky pooches on this one of getting a cut and blow dry as i hate getting my hair done. My daughter, wee son and new son paid for me to get my hair done last year for my birthday and i hated every minute of it. Talk about hyperventilating, i got in that much of a state. She put the colour on and forgot about me as she had too much going on, she came near with the scissors and the breathing went into overdrive. In a past life i trained as a hairdresser, but i could never be Stevie Quick Cut as i hate scissor marks left in someones hair or cutting too much off. I would rather recut than cut too much off in the first place. That was my first encounter with a hairdresser in over 10 years as i had always cut my hair myself. Hairdressers have this idea that they know better than you about what length your hair should be and they end up by cutting a great big whack off and giving you a bob that you don't suit or want. So sorry Lynne, i'm with fur babies on that score.
Now for me I have a birthday party to go to this afternoon where i will fit in fine... a 1yr old. My school chums grandson is having a party so i am guest of honour. I think it will be right up my street so i hope it stays a good day.
Gentle hugs to all my fragile friends, take care and see you tomorrow hopefully.
Love and crafty hugs

Rose in Chester said...

Hi Sue,
We've been hearing the "C" word a few times on C&C now, so it's not too big a shock.
But the card is absolutely divine - love the bling. Haven't got the mystical embrace but I'm sure one of the others will do. I'm thinking of one of your Spanish ones - would be stunning in white.
Looking very much forward to your shows - will record as well as watch.
Really nice to have you back.
Hugs, Rose

Beautiful card today

Pearl said...

Hi Sue, love the card from yesterday! I was at work most of the day and came home shattered so didn't get chance to turn on my computer to check out your blog - sorry......

Love the card today and it is a reminder for me to get started on my own christmas card list.

I really do have loads of christmassy stuff accumulated so I really must steel myself from ordering more, will that last? I don't think so, so I'll just have to send more cards......

Craftihappiness and seasonal greetings with merry thoughts to you all, love from Pearl you all

Morning Sue. Happy Friday Wilsonettes. HOW many show's Sue ? Nagtime ! (bet your own mom doesn't 'nag') WHEN do you stop ? All crafters design and think cards whilst dozing off into slumber, but you travel, design new items, have meetings and prep for show's and that's just a small part of your day - again, I repeat, when do you wind down ??!!!
My day consists of very little (unless something special is happening) but I wake up feeling I've crossed 3 timelines and look forward to bed !
Today's card is so very pretty and if you dont read.the sentiment you wouldn't put it in the (C) catagory which is good, although I understand that there are many wonderful Wilsonettes that craft for charity so C
has to come early.
Hubby has his final suit fitting tomorrow so the1 pm show belongs to me : ) and for reasons you know Sue, he doesn't mind you talking C in June LOL and will enjoy your company later as much as I will : ) I wont be so lucky on Sunday as.Im out trying to boost my finances to allow me to buy more of your collection, but hopefully I can sit and watch you Sunday evening, but my magic box is all set up to record.

Bag /shoes/tights/blister plasters/polyfiller all now in my drawer. Im done at last. All I need to do now is make more cards that need 'stocking
up' how I wish I had our girlies here to help - maybe I should attatch some match sticks to my eyes LOL - how do you do it Sue ?

Well I need to crack on. Oh Cassie is fine thanks to you lovely caring ladies that asked, she is no longer quiet/withdrawn and taking her antibiotics with the help of ham ! To those sweeties that said they had not heard of that breed that attacked her I cant spell rockviler LOL so to save my embarrasement (which now I am) I wrote - rockwotsit !!! So there ya go !!!

So I'll send welcome home hugs to you Sue, and love and hugs to Pam and Julie and all that want love n hugs today.
Lancashire Steph xx

Naughty,naughty Sue! I saw the C word and din't look any further, however, I am sure the card is lovely. Xxxx

Lindsay Martin said...

Morning Sue, I need all the inspiration I can get for my Christmas cards this year, they are normally all done by now, as when the shorter days arrive I am normally outside mucking out for longer so need to get them completed early, loving this one, and will be watching as much as I can over the weekend and hopefully the lit will come on and I will know exactly what to do this year.
Norah I'm with you, Tilly and Cally on this one, not had mine do e in over a year, I hate having it cut, really hate having to sit and look at myself for the duration too!
Steph, hope you managed to get the shoes and bag yesterday.
Julie and Lee hope the meds are taking affect now and the pain is lessening, I'm on tramadol and couldn't function,at all without it.
Janet, hope the packing is going ok, remember to pop some clothes in too!
Karen, Lynda, Lynne, Sandra, Tandy, Tres, Cameeli, Pam, Gail, Tina, Margaret and all my other Wilsonette family take care and hope the sun is shining for you all xxx

Tres said...

Hi Sue. Today's card is beautiful, simple, elegant and classy !! It is just gorgeous Sue !! I do not have any labels Seven stamps or dies as I have been buying your stamps and dies instead !! The Spellbinders Mystical Embrace die looks fab !! I may have to get that one. I love the sentiment and the layering and beautiful ice snow glitter on today's card. This looks like a lovely easy card to post too !! I have to make several extra Christmas cards each year now to send to our fairly new found family in Canada and postage is quite a lot of money !! So flat cards are best really. My parents have just come back from Canada the day before you Sue !! Myself and hubby still have not managed to save the money to go there for the first time yet. I have so many new family members there that I have not even met yet !! I am very excited though as I have just got the news that one of my new Canadian Uncles and his wife are coming to visit England and are staying with my parents for a week. I cannot wait to finally meet them !!
Sorry Sue I know I strayed a bit !! Thanks for sharing this beautiful card with us today. I hope you have a relaxing day before your very busy weekend on c+c. I am so looking forward to seeing you on the TV and I will also be recording every show, as I know I will want to see them again later !! Lots of love to you from Tres x x x

Julie Laz. Sorry to hear you are still having a difficult time. I hope things get sorted out for you and you feel better soon. Lots of love Tres x x x

To all the wonderful Wilsonette family, I hope everyone has a lovely day, lots of love Tres x x x

yorkielass said...

Hello Sue, I don't mind Christmas in June, I always plan to start early but somehow end up going to the wire. This card is beautiful in its simplicity, pure perfection.
Hope you are rested after your flight, hugs to you and your Mom who will be missing you. Got my seat booked for your shows, will miss the 6pm as have to pop out., but I will be glues to rest and am so excited.
Steph glad that you are sorted with wedding items, take it easy and good luck for Sunday, hope you have a sell out. Glad Cassie is getting better.
Norah congratulations on your blog hop win, you are on a roll. Your story yesterday had me in stitches, I could just imagine the white patch and needle marks. Enjoy the party and being guest of honour.
Julie hope you are improving with the new meds, hugs to you and Lee.
Tandy hope your husbands finger has improved.
Daily hugs to Pam, Tina, Tres, Gail, Jean, Mrs B, Margaret corgi owner, Lynne M, Lynda, Lyndsay, Cameeli and Magpie.

Sandra said...

Good morning Sue & lovely blog friends,
A very pretty card today Sue and take away the sentiment it could be for any occasion! So pretty with just the right amount of sparkle! I did notice in the show products list there are quite a few everyday products that we all need to restock, so the shows are well worth a visit even if you aren't in the C'mas spirit! The main thing I like to watch for is the amazing techniques that Sue shows! Can't wait!
Please,please, I hope you are on with a presenter that let's you craft and keeps focus on the guest and products, fingers crossed.
Norah have fun at your party, I think you may need a lie fiends afterwards!
Myra & Lynda hope you are both well, lovely to get a message from you, it made me smile x
Cameeli, sending you a big hug.
Steph. So glad you are all sorted, it must be a relief, although I don't suppose you are going to relax until you are waving off the last of the guests! I made a lovely card for a lady who's daughter was getting married, the verse had me drying like a baby, such lovely words, I added to my blog!
Oh Mrs B you are a glutten for punishment taking Beavers to a theme park, and then a sleepover, wow, I think you will be sleeping on Sunday, I hope the weather is good, makes it a bit easier! Good luck x
Julie, how are the meds helping, after a white the drowsy effect wears off, which makes it easier to get on with life, try and stay positive, hugs x
Well I must go and get everything up to share so that I can sit in front of the tv tomorrow!
Hugs to all,
Sandra xxx

Brenda Lello said...

Hello Sue,
Beautiful card which could fit many occasion, its only the sentiment that's about Christmas (there I have said it now) the 'C' word!
Take care, Love Brenda xxx

Steph, So pleased you have got your MOB outfit all sorted out, try and relax now before the big day.

Norah, I know you will have a great time at the party - enjoy

Julie L, Pam, Gail, Cameeli Myra, Nanna Tina, Janet(Echo) anyone in pain, feeling low or just needs a crafty hug Sending Love and Prayers.

hazel said...

Hi Sue
The thought of Christmas does make me cringe but i know us crafters have to make a start on the cards as there are so much to make.
This card is stunning Sue and i love the bling . Take away the Christmas sentiment on the card and it can be a anytime of year card
Looking forward to all your shows
Take care

Helloooo Sue and the Wilsonettes! Love the C card Sue. It's never too late to start Christmas cards and we thank you in advance for your tips and ideas over the next 6 months....! I love the dies and stamp that you have used and the iced snow gives it that wonderful bling shine. Can't wait to see you tomorrow Sue. I'm hoping to be able to watch all your shows, if not I'll get hubby to set the record button! I hope you are managing to get a bit of a rest before your shows tomorrow. So glad that C&C are letting you show your dies again and good news about the one's that you've managed to get more of. Thank you x
Just to say Steph, so glad that Cassie is not too bad x
Well done Norah and Jackie on your blog hop!
Glad your craft room is getting there Claire!
Good news Steph that you have everything for the big day! It will be wonderful (know what you mean about the polyfiller!)xx
Nanna Tina hope everything will be okay over the injections today x My niece had her baby on the 20th of December 2012 (20/12/2012) at 4 minutes past 7 in the morning weighing 7lb 4oz (4/7, 7/4!).
Sam, you do as you feel shug. We all have our ways of trying to remembering things xx
Tres, so excited for you on finding new family members! I've been there as I was adopted and it's been a happy rollercoaster ride since 2003! Enjoy shug xx

Barbara said...

Beautiful card even if it is for Christmas! I really cant be bothered with xmas in June. I tend to make my cards in Sept/Oct. I will be watching and taping all your hours but wont buy anything for xmas yet, would rather spend my money on my never-ending list of goodies that I can use all year round.

Lynn (delphinoid) said...

Beautiful Card Sue!

Christmas is June is a bit too early for me, but I understand if you have lots to make or you are doing craft fairs etc then you need the time to get them done.

I do like everything about it, especially the sparkle.

Happy Crafting!!! :) X X

Joanna Dickson said...

Hi Sue,and the Wilsonettes.
Its another hot day in Blackpool, very overcast this morning but the Sun eventually poked through. It was my Daughters Sports day today so at least it didn't rain.
OMG, we are on that word already. Brilliant understated card though. I love the iced snow. Blingy, icey and lovely.
I'm not going to hang about as I'm going to set the record button for the next couple of days. I keep them all, but there is a possibility I will be turned in too.
Have a fab couple of day everyone. Lots of crafty love

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, I love today's card and can see a stamp purchase coming on tomorrow. How did I miss the Mystical Embrace die? It's gorgeous, so I will have to see if there are any pennies left after the week-end :-)
Recorder all set up for your shows but I will be watching as many as possible live. No problem with football in this house, OH dislikes it as much as me but I might just have a tiny conflict with the cricket.

Vick said...

Absolutely stunning my friend, i love it and yes the dreaded C word is rearing its head early, but it does every year, however, i think it's people like me who end up sending out 'shop bought' cards (dare i say it, blasphemy lol) that don't worry about early C cards LOL love this although with a different sentiment is a gorgeous wedding card!! hugs, Vick xxx

Hi Sue and lovely blog friends

Totally beautiful, elegant Christmas card. Love the bling. really looking forward to your shows tomorrow. I am literally deleting other programs, just so that I don't miss any of your fab demo's. We have been asked over to our daughters for lunch, so I am hoping you have brought enough stock over that I don't miss out.

Anyway see you tomorrow crafty hugs Julie xx


To all the lovely Wilsonetts ladies
Thank you for all your kind thoughts
I just wish the doctors would sort me out once and for all, as i do everything they ask, 6 back surgeries
I had a spinal cord stimulated to fitted inside me,
Then all the controlled drugs which they want me to take,
just wish it was all a bad dream...crafty hugs Julie xx

Hi Sue
I'm extremely late today but wanted to leave just a short post to say thank you for a lovely card! Christmas in June is quite funny in some ways but I will just be glad to see you back on our screens!
Wishing you all the very best for tomorrow - will really try to email but as I'm away from home it may not happen!
All Shows set to record!
Always lovely to get new 'Sue' ideas and tips.
Safe travel,
Crafting hugs,
Myra

Love to all lovely friends on this blog! x

Lovely card, but too early to think about Christmas. Though can't believe that its nearly July. How quick this year seems to have gone.

Blue Rose said...

Sue,
What a gorgeous card. I love the glittering, a little snow. You did a great job.

Sandy H said...

Beautiful card. The Mystical Embrace die is gorgeous. Wish I had that one. Recorder set up so I won't miss any of your demos.

All of you organised Wilsonettes put me to shame. I have so many summer cards to make that my Christmas cards are always done later in the year - much later!

Congratulations to the lucky Blog Candy winners.
