Wednesday Weekly Card Giveway

 Hello all!  Today's offering is a card that I made last year, but somehow completely missed blogging it.  I started by using my Grand Rectangles to create a frame.  I cut them to the desired size, then added them to the Basket weave folder for embossing.  This was done with the card still in the dies so the embossing has to be done with the folder open so the dies do not cut into the folder itself.  I added mounting foam to the back and went to work on the focal element.  Using the Delicate Doily die, I cut the decorative insert in to periwinkle blue card.  Out of black card, I cut the Lacy Tiers die and glued it in place around the doily cut out.  Using a score tool, I added a double score line around the edge.  I mounted my embossed frame over the focal element.  I stamped a sentiment on to a forked tag and folded it and glued it to the side of the frame.  I added some black tulle and a swirl from the Jewelled Flowers set and seated a handmade sugared rose on top.  A single black pearl in the centre and a white mat finished the card nicely.  I think this one would cheer up any one not feeling well, don't you!  Leave a comment today if you would like to be included in the drawing for it with the winner to be announced on Saturday's post.  Finished dimensions are 6 1/2" x 6 1/2" in size.

I know that we have reached our goal of 5000 followers for the blog candy drawing.  I am headed home today so I will get everything caught up and hopefully do the drawing and post the winners on Friday afternoon.  It is quite the process, so please bear with me a few more days.  All for now, Sue x

Hope you have a good journey home - it's cool and soggy here at the mo so hope you have a little sunshine packed in your case for us along with loads of your fantastic samples - hope we will get a sneak peek?.. - is it your new die range coming soon?... urgho - if so I can feel my ccard trembling! I will be glued to your shows at the weekend - have done some sorting in my craft room but still a bit more to do - I have a vision of how I want it to be but some tough decisions must be made about getting rid of stuff and I have to be 'in the mood' to be tough and get rid. Off to do some ironing then the craft room gets it - hopfully! Best wishes to all Wilsonettes in need of them.

Morning Sue
It will be lovely to have you back in the UK and I am sure that you have enjoyed the special time with your Mom.
Lovely card today, I haven't got this die as yet, another one to add to my ever growing wish list. Really looking forward to the shows at the weekend and will have to compromise as my husband wants to watch football and watch the Irish open golf tournament, but I think I will record some programmes and watch some live.
Have a safe journey Home Sue and hugs to everyone.

Pam, sending your daily hug. Will be sending you extra on the 27th, keep thinking positive thoughts about your ankle op!
Hugs for everyone suffering in what ever way including Jean, Gail,and Tina, Congratulations on the arrival of Bubble and Squeak:)
Thanks for my shout out Sandra, I expect you will understand what I mean when I say I hope you are having a "not too bad" day with the pain! Your puppy and kittens have to find out who is going to be the leader of the pack, then they will settle down and be the best of friends I'm sure.
Happy Birthday Norah. I hope you have a lovely day. Enjoy your hills, and keep in mind what a clever lad you have : )
Wishing everyone a good day.
Take care.

Ecco of Sheffield said...

morning Sue
Today's gift is a beautiful piece of art and would enhance anyone's wall rather than subjecting it to the postal service. I defy anyone not to love this piece.
The colour scheme is gentle (have fallen in love with the Periwinkle blue) and then out pops the touch of black to just finish off.
Brenda - Oh yes I know that phrase 'just in case' very well. When unpacking carrier bags appear mysteriously and they're not mine!
Sandra - it's my Daughter who rescues/cares for all the animals. Our holiday home is in Burgundy in the department of Nievre.
Hope you have a good flight home and that you leave everyone in the US in good health and many happy memories made.
Take care everyone and see you tomorrow.

Birthday hugs and wishes to Yorkielass and Norah, hope both of you have a fun filled day!
Norah sounds like you have a computer genius there, a good skill to have these days as every company seems to be computer run! Well done Rory!

Welcome Bubble & Squeak to the 'fur family' I hope they bring you as much love and enjoyment as Bella & Milo have to us, I have discovered that they have huge 'therapeutic' powers, no matter how low you feel, they always bring a smile to your face, enjoy them xx

Good morning Sue and fellow Wilsonettes,
I love the blue of the card, it is so beautiful in colour and the black additions just make it pop all the more. I love the swirl from the jeweled set, with the beautiful rose on top, it just sets it off a treat. Need to get the grand nestabilities square dies further up the list but they always seem to be out of stock. Beautiful Sue as always, imagine for getting about such a beauty. Give Mum a cuddle and see her soon again when your holidays here is over with. Take care dear Jill until we can give you another load of cuddles via Sue.
June (Yorkielass), Happy Birthday flower. I hope you have a great day and someone is good to you. Yes it is my birthday as well today, having always had a numbers thing going on in my head, the 6 for the month, 66 for the year, but if you add the 3 6's together you get the 18. Born the right month and year, plus being a twin, Jim was the other half of me not only in star sign, but in life as well. He was the naughty have of the twins sign and i was the quiet side. Thank you girls for my birthday wishes. Just shown Rory your Happy Birthday note Pam, got him to read it out, but still waiting on him saying to me, but that's Rory as it will dawn on him later on.
Going into Stirling to meet my friend for a cup of coffee and a window shop and back for a coffee.
Gentle hugs to our fragile friends and i hope that the sun is shining where ever you are, if not outside i hope it can from inside out.
Love and crafty hugs
Norah (Glenochil)

Love the colours and layout The splash of black really makes it "pop" Not sure about the sentiment I suppose it's because I'm used to seeing "Get Well Soon" Just goes to show how we get conditioned with what's on the market Looking forward to weekend Does this mean new collections of your dies..?

Maureen Killen said...

Good morning Sue,
and good morning to all the ladies. I've a load of apologies to make. Brenda, I'm sorry I didn't realise it was the big 1st communion day on Sunday. I hope you all had a gorgeous day and that your granddaughter enjoyed herself and got loads of cards and presents.
June (Yorkielass) and Norah - Happy Birthday.
All the ladies who are poorly - get well soon and those who have been bereaved I hope you will soon feel sronger - I'm sorry I haven't named you individually but I'm hopeless at remembering names.
Finally - Sue, if I'd realised that you would answer my call to come back to the U.K. so quickly (I blogged you to come back yesterday), I'd have put the request in sooner.
Love and best wishes to all xx

Maureen Killen said...

Oops, I forgot to say, Sue that I LOVE this card. It's almost - I said almost - worth being poorly to receive such a lovely card. xx

Lea Brawn said...

How beautiful is this. Gorgeous colours x

Dawn E said...

Oh how GORGEOUS! This is such a beautiful card today Sue - not that they all aren't gorgeous but this one & the last 2 days just made something in me want to sing with joy... so "thank you". I don't know if you read all of these comments being so busy but does this Doily die have a name as I would like to try to do this card.
Welcome back! hugs Dawn xx

Hi Sue,
Today's card goes up there with my favourites! It is beautiful. I love everything about it I don't have the grand squares but I must try to get them. I really liked the double scoring - its these little touches that make a "Sue Card."
Love the rose and swirl too.
Safe journey, Sue, sad to leave Mum but I guess not for too long this time. Going to Warwick to see our son and daughter in law at the weekend so will miss the Shows Live ! - I can't believe it - however I have set all shows on both days to Record.
June and Norah - Happy Birthday - hope sun shining.
Tina great to hear from you - think of you often - welcome Bubble and Squeak - great names!
Sandra - heard your email read out yesterday. I sent an email in as Julia is such a lovely person.
Sending hugs to Steph, Julie ( hope you ok x) ,Gail , Ita , Cazzie , Tres and any I have missed.
Love to all friends on this blog of blogs!

P in Wales, my goodness I think I would have lost my marbles if I was 18 in animal years, he knows where his bread is buttered being spoiled with all that food.

Pam, will be thinking of you on the 27th. Hugs

Ros Hodgkin said...

Hello Sue, I feel for you leaving your mom it doesn't get any easier does it.
Love today's card and would like to say how poorly I feel and am certain that only having this card to cheer me up is all I need to lose this horrid green thing that sounds a bit like zealous.
I make yesterday's card yesterday, and as predicted I was not as good as yours but it wasn't so bad that I have sent it to my sister in law.
Please bring some sunshine back with you please.
X Ros

Tina so nice to hear from you, we had cats named bubble and squeak, still have squeak and don't worry about the housework it won't be going anywhere. But the kittens need you in these early days.
Lynne, so glad you had some time off for good behaviour.
Cameeli hope you enjoyed your change of scene today, after all they say a change is as good as a rest, not sure I totally agree but it's nice.
Karen my lad sends hugs back, he is being such a good patient.
Well better get off and get some ponies in for lessons, not sure what time I can catch up tomorrow as the young lads are having their second session being broken in.
Love and hugs to all my lovely friends on Sues most amazing blog, I'm just surprised there are only 5000 of us. Yaks care Sue and try and have a little rest time xxx

Hi Sue, beautiful card today, I really like the way you make your frames. More practice for me, I think.

Tina - Bubble & Squeak sound adorable (we had a cat called Squeak because he couldn't miaow), maybe you should introduce them to Sandra's Bella & Milo.
