Morning Sue. Wow love this creation. The colours are beautiful and i have all the dies and folder to have ago at this one today for my sisters birthday next week. Thank you for all your insperation i would be lost without it. You should do another dvd and give us crafters to have something to go back to time and again. I know it would be hard for you to fit a one in to your busy life but it is worth thinking about. Take Care.
Best Wishes.

June said...

Morning Sue, Pam and all Wilsonettes, oh what a beautiful card today, just spent time looking at the video, will go over it again later, loved the way you did the stamped embossed background to the sentiment area but also the lovely flower, who would have thought to use the ity bity bows, they look so effective.

Pam thanks for the site for Robbie but what is his last name? so I can see it.

Hope all of you are safe, healthy and happy, hugs June Smith xxx

Special Hugs to Mrs B and Sandra, we've had a few choice words when driving as we got caught up in a real stinker traffic jam in Chania. With cars and scooters coming at us from all directions. We survived and had a wonderful day, and managed to get back to our hotel all in one piece.
Hugs to all in need of one today.

morning Sue
Thank you for the most beautiful and elegant gift today.
I love love your new Efolders. They are just superb. Today's colours are so gentle/soft and who wouldn't love to receive a gift such as this.

Norah - I'm so so sorry to hear of your loss. Mums are so so special as we all know. You're all in my prayers and thoughts.

Steph - where are you?

Sandra - I don't have a blog but will try and get a pic to you via yours. (fingers/toes etc all crossed).

Off to have the first stage of my annual cardio check up at my local surgery. After having blood taken last week at the hospital it's now the turn of of my local vamps. If I carry on like this I'll not have any left (thinking of the old Tony Hancock sketch).

Hope all are feeling a little better this morning. Take care and stay safe. See you tomorrow.

Stunning card Sue. I love the uncluttered look and the dies you have used - and my favourite embossing folder too! I didn't think I would like this folder as I'm not normally a lover of straight lines as I think it looks too regimented. However, I borrowed the folder from a friend to try and then couldn't wait to get one - it really is gorgeous! Pat x

Robin said...

Lovely card again. Want to extend my crystal ball request from yesterday - any ideas what I have done with my Spanish Collection dies and Meadow stamps??? Not me - who seems to be a permanent resident in my house at the moment - has a lot to answer for? I have even made a card with one of these dies, as I have with the missing bow die I mentioned yesterday!

Tres said...

Hi Sue. Wow !! Such a fab informative video today, with some lovely ideas !! As usual your card is stunning Sue !! I love how you have put an aperture in your card, and then covered it with a frame to make it all neat and tidy and a great idea to do white on white embossing and then going over it with a coloured ink pad to bring out the beautiful embossed pattern. As for the idea of making the itty bitty bows into flowers - well just pure genius Sue !! I am so excited now I have seen you make these flowers with the bows. I will be making these as soon as I get the chance to with my new itty bitty dotty bow dies. I will also have to try out my itty bitty classic bow dies to. Now I have to get the filigree and the mosaic bows to !! Thank goodness for Birthdays and Christmas !!
Thank you for such an amazing video and a stunning card today. I can't wait to see your shows on C +C at the weekend.
Sending you lots of love and hugs today Sue, love Tres x x x

Hello Sue
A really gorgeous card and video today.
The colours are so lovely together and I love how you have made that lovely flower from the bow die. All the other dies you have used just make this card so stunning. All in all one of my favourites!!
Love Lesley S

Hi Sue, lovely card today I have already used my Ity Bity Bow to make a flower and I was so pleased with the result. Beryl xx

Anne Temple said...

Love your card and I had to smile as I just opened my new bow die yesterday and kept thinking how that particular piece would make a great flower or a fun repeating background. :-) I'm definitely going to try this.

Beautiful card, great video. I made flowers out of Sues faux quilled leaves, and she mentioned me on TV when she made her flower out of the bows, (my claim to fame)
Norah thinking of you and your family at this very sad time. Hugs to all who need them Theresa x

Hi Sue

You have shown some beautiful cards over the last few day's.

I have'nt been on the blog lately as my daughter Claire was rushed into hospital last Thursday with suspected appendicitis, she got sent home appendix still in tact and still in pain. She has to back tomorrow to see another consultant to see how she is and if she needs more tests.

I would like to say a heartfelt Thank you to everyone that has left messages on my blog about Claire XX.

NORAH, I can't put into words how sad and sorry I am to hear about your lovely mum. You have sent lovely thoughts for me through my sad times lately, it's ditto time now and I send you & Rory such big hugs, and my condolences. Thinking of you. XX

Big hugs to Steprh, Margaret, Yorkielass, Lynda, Pam & Robbie, Little Leo, and Sheila I hope you feel better soon.

Kind regards to all :-)

Tina XX

Lindsay Martin said...

Ooh Sue, this one is lovely great use of your dies as always,
Norah, I. So sorry to read that your dear mum has passed away, you have told us so many stories of your childhood which have included so many details of what she was like, please take time to grieve and remember we are here for you, big hugs to Rory to at this difficult time for him.
Well my mums second cousin told us it was my great aunts funeral today and asked for a lift. So I drove and met her half way to drive her and my mum to the crem. We got there in time even with lots of diversions due to road works. When I got there I thought we had gone to the wrong one as it was so different to when my great uncle died, three years previously, it had be re modelled. Didn't see anyone we recognised, finally found a list of the times and cremations and my aunts name wasn't on it. We had to phone her daughter who told us it was actually next week. Argh no appoligies from the second cousin! So I will make the journey again next week!
Lynne glad your girls are behaving.
Thanks all for your wishes on my riding, I can't tell you how much being able to ride again means to me, even if I do have more pain from it but it's worth it.
Love and hugs to all my friends, Norah, Pam, Cameeli, June, Lynne, Linda, Sandra, Karen, Alison, Tina, tres, Theresa, TOB, Janet, p in Wales, mrs B, Mrs Duck, Wheely bad, Margaret, Myra and and all those whose names have run from my tired mind xxx

Another beautiful card today Sue. Peach s not a colour we use often but looks really delicate. Xx

Sheila Lampard said...

Hi Sue
Stunning card - I tried to make my version in pink and one in lemon.But I started too late in the being - but half way there. Takes so long to do all the elements to go with it.
BRILLIANT idea with the bow turning in to a flower!
