For A Special Friend

 Hi there my crafty friends!  Thank you so much for the wonderful support from everyone for the past weekend's shows!  I was delighted that the dies were so well received.  I thought I would give you a short break from all the Christmas cards and switch gears a bit, so today's card showcases the second release dies.  I started by embossing the background on this one.  Using the Quilted Flower embossing folder, I gave texture to a piece of coconut white card.  Next I used the French Collection border and corners and cut four of each out of coconut white card as well.  I glued the borders into place along the edge of the embossed background, then added the corners into place on top, creating a frame for my card.  I stamped my sentiment using a Black Archival ink pad.  I cut it out with the inner decorative die from the Salzburg set.  I inked it with Aqua Adirondack ink to highlight the sentiment.  I cut the larger die from the set and seated my sentiment upon it and mounted the topper in the centre of my frame.  Using the Itty Bitty Filigree bow die, I cut it out of white card.  I used the Classic Itty Bitty Bow die and cut a coordinating bow out of aqua card (although my pic looks a bit blue!) and a glued the two together before forming my 3D bow out of it.  I added the bow on an angle to my topper to add a little embellishment (these bows are just the right size for that, don't you think!)  I completed the card with a white mat which I added Cosmic Shimmer white PVA Glue dots to all the way around, then a thin aqua mat and a final white mat layer.  The finished dimensions are 8 1/4" x  8 1/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Morning Sue, beautiful card today. Looks very lacy. Thank you for the great weekend of shows, you looked so well and clearly enjoying yourself. So many familiar names read out and thank you for drawing my name out of the hat for a card, congrats to all the other winners too. Bejay you got your wish, hope it helps you get better.
Steph, thanks for all your help this weekend, you are such a caring, giving person. Barrie, what a star, the poem was great.
Tina, sorry to hear Claire is still in pain, hope she improves soon.
Hugs to Norah, Rory and family, babies Leo and Skylar and all who are in need, including all who are missing from the blog at the moment. You are missed.

Hi Sue. This is a real stunner, but easy to do. I love the dies and the background.
Thank you for giving us such great demos and so many helpful hints and tips over the weekend. As always you looked as fresh and bright on the last show as the first. How do you do it? Your tops are so pretty too, do you get them in America? I am so looking forward to seeing you on Saturday at Ally Pally, hope you get a rest before then though : )
It was good to hear lots of familiar names being read out(wasn't able to email yesterday sadly) Congratulations Pam on winning one of Sue's gorgeous cards : )
Sending my daily hugs to you Sue, to Pam and Robbie, to Sandra and Pat and my other special friends and to all in need. Take care.

June said...

Morning Sue, Pam and all Wilsonettes, what a fantastic weekend we have just had with you Sue, I watched everyone whilst it was on (but had a lot going on this weekend)and have also taped them so that I can go back and refresh my memory, just in case I missed any. And to give you another slot on top of the ones you were booked for, wow, and so many sell outs, well I am not surprised because these dies, stamps and embossing folders are truly brilliant.

I am loving todays card and will definitely be having a go at this one, mind you I try and have a go at all of them, such inspiration, thank you Sue.

Congrats to Pam and all the winners of one of your cards, I sent in emails but was not lucky enough to get them read out but that doesn't matter because I have one of your Wednesday giveaway cards which I treasure and it is nice for others to benefit. Loved the poem.

There are so many people who read and comment on your blog, they feel like one big family, too many to mention but every single one of them are included in my sentiments and wishes.

I also bought some more of the dies and the embossing folders oh hurry up postie.........

Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs June Smith xxx

Lovely card today Sue,those cobwebby effects are stunning. Have loved the shows this weekend and had a go at recreating our own Sue Wilson cards with a twist of course.

Good morning Sue
What a truly stunning card you've given us today. It's so feminine and lacy, your itty bitty bows are so cute. I so enjoyed your shows and demos over the weekend (I just wish you were allowed more demos) it certainly got my crafting mojo back. Sadly I was out all day yesterday and had set my recorder for your shows so missed the one at 5.00pm I will try to get it on catch up.
Congratulations Pam and Steph on winning a card.
Yorkielass thank you for my hug yesterday, I haven't been in a very good place lately ( I'm okay now) so your kind gesture was very much appreciated.

Beautiful card today, enjoyed catching up with video of new dies (following my recent hospital visit for a breast cancer op).
Very impressive dies and will certainly be on my Christmas wish-list. I can imagine your delight at the responses of their debut.

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes. Well what a fab weekend, thanks Sue. Congrats to Beejay, Barbara ? 'our Pam' Barbie, brill poem lol, and oh dear, Im sorry if I forgot someone who got picked for a Sue card, you must all be chuffed.
You were starting to look slightly dilerious by your last show Sue, although Lee looked like 'he was on something' lol !!! It really wasn't any suprise how popular your new collection is, Im sure everyone connected with the designs are saying "told you so " hope you have managed a bit of a lie in after your pizza and on reflection over breakfast, you and Mr Sue will have a small glass of bucks fizz to celebrate your continuing sucess.
Todays sentiment is for you and my special friends here, Ive just made an anniversary card using the corners, but used them 'out of the box' see, I said I was starting to 'play' more and its thanks to your wonderful tuition.

I hope you manage a small rest today before next weekend.

To all my lovely special friends it was lovely to hear your names read out. Have a lovely day. If you are sore unhappy or down, tomorrow will be a better brighter day.
Love you.

Morning Sue. This is a stunning card. Change the sentiment and what a beautiful wedding card. Don't have this set so it will have to go on my wish list but i did get a lot of your christmas 2014 dies and e/b folders over the weekend. It looked like you had some great shows over the weekend but my fav one was with lee you both had me in stiches. Congrats on your successful weekend and all your hard work. Hope you have some time for yourself before you have to start over again for AP.
Take care of yourself.

alimecca said...

Hi Sue,
Thank you for a wonderful weekend of fabulous shows. The samples were to die for! I really don't know how you do it all ( and have time to design the dies) . I hope you manage to chill out and have some me time before Ally Pally. Today's card is beautiful and I have made 3 cards almost the same , without the middle bit, as soon as my dies came. This was one that you used when you showcased the dies on release and I loved it so much that I had to have a go. The recipients were absolutely blown away by the cards!
Well after the weekend off ( well almost) it's back to decorating today ugh!ive also got to go to a garage as I caught the wing mirror when reversing out of the garage last night and it's broken ( not too badly hopefully it will push back together! ). Hubby will not be too pleased when he hears about it! The car is only 3 months old! Pam so pleased you won a Sue Wilson masterpiece. Hope you feel better for it. Tina hope Claire is feeling better. Norah and family you are in my thoughts. Steph hope you are ok. Love to all especially Lindsay, Lynne,Tres, Maureen, Myra, Sandra,Cameeli, June and everyone else I've missed! Have a good day everyone, love Alison xxx

Morning Sue and my lovely Wilsonettes. To 'our Pam' Barbie, Beejay, and all the lucky lovely ladies that were picked for a W.O.W yesterday congratulations to you, how wonderful so many of you were chosen. Oh Sue, by your last show (with help from Lee) you were starting to look dilerious !!! What a weekend you had, soooo succesful but expected and not at all suprised. Hope you are toasting your wonderful weekend with a small glass of bucks fizz ! I can tell you, that hearing so many lovely names put a BIG smile on my face, so you must have been ready to burst with pride, as for Mr Sue, how proud must HE be ? Wow, Im sure you got the biggest pizza he could find lol.

Our Monday card is sooo pretty, I love using my corner die, but thanks to you Ive used them 'out of the corner' so to speak, and used them all together as a circular focal point, a few months ago I would have used them as corner dies but not now thanks to your tuition.

I hope all my real dear special friends managed to watch your shows without suffering too much discomfort, and that you all had a decent weekend. If today is already proving difficult, I have many soothing gentle cuddles, so please take as many as you need.

Have a lovely day Sue.
Love to you.

Ecco of Sheffield said...

morning Sue from a very very foggy and cold Monday morning here in Sheffield. Autumn has hit us well and truly.
Thank you for starting my week with the most beautiful of gifts. I have really fallen in love with the colour scheme of all white and occasionally a hint of another colour. You really have made your dies sing with this morning's gift.

Pam - I can hear your yelps of excitment - just remember that foot is still not strong enough to start dancing on. Many congrats I'm sure there is a place just ready and waiting.
Sandra - A very Happy Anniversary - hope you both had a wonderful day.
Norah - You're still with me. Gentle steps lovely lady.

It's a finishing off day of my sample for tomorrow's Craft afternoon with my Knit & Natter friends. I then have to do some re-organising and sorting in prep for my new table to arrive. This means that somethings will have to go and that is really going to be difficult as I just hoard anything crafty. Oh well recycling with benefit.

To all who are not feeling too good take things slowly and carefully. To everyone take care and stay safe. See you tomorrow.

Good Morning Sue & friends,
What a pretty, lacy card today, so feminine. Wow what a weekends Sue, you must be exhausted, the bit I love is that you get to see first had how very much your dies are loved by so many people, the hundreds of emails also show that you are clearly the most popular Guest that they have! I so hope you draw comfort from that xx
Well I can't believe it's Monday again, what happened to the weekend? Well I hope this week passes as fast as the last one as I cannot wait to be meeting some of you at Ally Pally next Saturday!
June, I love being part of this big craft family, do you want to be the 'Auntie' haha, well Auntie June I hope the postie is soon rushing your new dies through your letterbox! I am really impatient, when I have bought them I want them NOW!
I ordered some last week, the Innsbruck Die, the Grand Vinery (which arrived Saturday) & the faux quilled flowers, I have been desperate for those for months, I would like some of the background dies next, I hope to get them at the weekend, what's on everyone's shopping lists?
Norah I hope that you are feeling stronger as the days pass, it does get easier I promise, I can't imagine trying to deal with the sadness an grief as well as being so poorly at the same time, sending you the warmest hugs xxx
Cameeli, I can't wait for that cuddle!
Thank you so much for the lovely Anniversary wishes, we had a relaxed day, I just love spending time with Paul, it doesn't matter what we are doing, we mostly went to tag allotment yesterday, I sat and made some jewellery while he was weeding.....we know how to celebrate! Hahaha x
Yorkielass Janet, I hope all of your goodies are delivered super fast, would love to see your creations, do you blog? Thanks for your lively wishes xx
Tina I was so sad to read that you would be able to make AP as Claire is still poorly, I would have lived to meet you, I wish Claire a speedy recovery, hugs x
Lovely Lynda, thanks to you too for your kind thoughts,
I hope you enjoyed your Baby Harry hugs! Not the ironing though, although watching Sue craft would make ironing more bearable! Hugs xxxx

Your weekend shows were brilliant and it was great to hear so many names that I felt I knew. Pam don't rush too quickly to the letterbox when your card arrives remember your leg is not strong enough yet.
Well it is a beautiful day here so I must go and walk my dog. To anyone is need, pain or otherwise I send hugs. Take care, chins up Helen K xxxx

Hi Sue loving today's card it has a very sophisticated look to it. Haven't started to collect these dies yet but I think the French set will be the first ones as they are so Lacey .

Thank you for all your hard work and the beautiful samples, you give us so many ideas. Off to the chiropractor today then hope to catch up with more shows. Take care love Diane G xxx

Hi Sue,
What a gorgeous card, I just love it, have to do a card for a Diamond Jubilee and this would work so well, so she don't mind might do something similar. I always tell people you are my inspiration and give me so many ideas, thank you dear lady.
Loved all of the shows and hearing so many names from the blog, Barbiepinkfairy your poem was lovely well done, so pleased they read it out. I like many others did emailing but mine wasn't drawn out of the hat/cup but that didn't matter, it was just lovely hearing names that I recognised.
Hope you have a good day and are able to relax after your manically busy weekend.
Take care, love Brenda xxx

Tres said...

Hi Sue. Today's card is very beautiful !! Your French borders and corner dies look so delicate and Lacey. I think they are very pretty. I love the Salzburg dies to. They are from your Austrian collection but the outer Lacey pattern on them looks very similar to the French collection. I think this card shows just how perfectly the the two collections mix and and match together. You are just so clever Sue. You certainly know what your crafters will love !! More dies to add to my huge wish list !!
I love your white on white / cream on cream cards with just a hint of colour, and one of my most favourite colours of card stock at the moment is the beautiful Aqua card. At present I am in love with making your bows Sue. Large or Itty Bitty, they are going on all my cards !! When I make my Christmas Cards I am putting bows on them to !! The Holly stamps to match the bows are one of the top items on my wish list !!
Thank you for sharing this beautiful card with us today. All your shows over the weekend were fantastic Sue !! I recorded as many as I could. (Free view) and watched every single one. I was completely hooked. I just wish you had been given more time to do more demo's. The extra show was a real bonus though and I was so pleased to be able to watch an extra hour of you with your amazing cards and demo's. I hope you get the chance to have a bit of rest and relaxation time before your next busy weekend.
Sending you lots of crafty love and hugs today Sue from Tres x x x

Norah, thinking of you and your family today. Sending you all lots of love and gentle hugs from Tres x x x

Congratulations to Pam for winning one of Sue's gorgeous cards !! I hope you are feeling much better. Sending you and Robbie lots of crafty love and hugs today from Tres x x x

Congratulations to everyone else that won a gorgeous Sue Wilson original to. I was so pleased to recognise several Wilsonette's names when their e-mails were read out. Most of all congratulations to Barbiepinkfairy who's wonderful poem was read out !! I loved it. x x x

To all the Wondeful Wilsonettes, I hope everyone has a lovely day today. Lots of crafty love and hugs from Tres x x x

Thanks Sue for so many wonderful demos over the weekend. So many georgeous samples. I chilled out yesterday with them all (catch up on C&C). From the names read out I think all the Wisonettes were watching.

Cheers to all

Hi Sue
Stunning card your weekender shows were just awesome- so good to see you back craft shows are dull without you

Anonymous said...

Good morning Sue and fellow Wilsonettes. Another gorgeous card, Sue, and I can't tell you how much I enjoyed your shows last weekend. The new dies are just outstanding and I want them all! and the embossing folders and stamps, too! I have quite a few of your dies already, more on order, and I'm thinking of having an extension built to house my crafty stash (lol) You have every reason to be as proud as a peacock.
Love to all, Judy M

I have quite a few of your christmas dies and it was so interesting to see how yourself and John used them, gave me plenty of new ideas. Kind regards Sandra Kent

Myra P said...

Hi Sue,
What a lovely card once again. So pretty with just that hint of aqua. It is such a versatile card and the dies do all the work. You are a very clever lady. I'm sure you are a rather tired lady this morning! If not - I want some of whatever you are on! Lol. I loved some of the fun bits yesterday too. Dean and his panini story - well I could just see it happening! Lee and the tulle and also his jumpers! It was a most enjoyable two days and I think it must be even more so if the person watching is housebound or alone.
You provided a great service!!
Bejay Roles - you got your wish - so thrilled for you.
Great to hear all the names we know and love not only read out but winning cards. They will be treasured.
Crafting with children this afternoon and I've decided to do a Lucky Dip day! Doing this each week means that so often I have some 'projects' left over each week. This can get a bit much after a while. So much clutter!
So today we are using up some older things. By making a game out of it I hope it goes down ok! Fingers crossed!
Cheryl - lovely to have you back. Missed you.
Janet - calling at Charity Shop on way to Craft today - kitchen stuff and craft card and paper that I will never use. Someone else will I'm sure.
Norah - hope you are feeling a bit stronger. If we could will your pain and anguish away we would - but we can't. All we can do is send love and hugs and let you know how much you mean to us. Take care, my friend.xx
Love to Sue, Sandra, Steph, Julie Laz, Lynda - hope you enjoyed your cuddles with baby Harry., Lynne, Lindsay, Janet, June, Alison, Anne, Brenda L, Sheila, DianeandChips - hope you ok x, TOB Theresa, Tina, Wheelybad, Heather T .
Have a good day everyone.
Love Myra

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, I hope you managed a lie-in this morning after your hectic but very successful week-end. The shows were all great and I just wish you were on more often, although that does probably mean that I would be bankrupt!

Today's card is beautiful and puts me very much in mind of the Victorian cards that were adorned with real lace.

Well done to all the ladies that had their e-mails read out and/or won a WOW original. Never mind, I'll try again next time :-)

Loved the shows and demos at the weekend Sue. I tried to track down The Grand Square Dies that you use on many of your cards and demo'd over the weekend last week, but sadly they are no longer available as they were discontinued around two months ago.

Congratulations Pam on winning one of Sue's cards.

Bejay Roles said...

Hi Sue, first of all many thanks for picking me out of the 'cup of chance' on Sunday. I can't wait to see which of the two cards will be coming my way. I think I should have taken your advice and bought a lottery ticket as I seem to have had a lucky week :)
Now let's talk about the card...what can I say that hasn't already been said? This is so elegant. The die cuts are incredible and I love the colour palette. I think that if someone sent me a card as wonderful as this one I would frame it. Totally stunning, Sue. As always, thanks for sharing with us. x

PS, Just wanted to say, your prices for your designs are so good compared to other offers on C&C.

Good evening Sue and Wilsonette Angels,
A beautiful card Sue made with exquisite dies although these are on my wish list as especially the border/corners and the background dies are so pretty. You looked beautiful at the weekend and although i emailed in the 2nd show on Saturday i'm sorry i couldn't again. I was with you all in spirit and so happy for my Angels that gained such a prized card. Sorry not got the happy me back, but have a rest before your next big outing at the AP.
Thank you all my angels for your continued thoughts. Sorry i am not able to get into my usual self as i miss my best friend, but your continued kindness and hugs are so very much appreciated. I will try and pull myself together but at the moment just a bit hard. Take care dear friends,
Love and crafty hugs

hazel said...

Hi Sue
A very beautiful card. The two colours are beautiful and those corners are stunning. I do love your cute dainty bow. For someone that cant make a real bow- i know it looks so simple when you make them - but mine always looks a mess so having all your Bow dies and stamps makes making a bow so much simpler and the stand up really well in the post they dont sqash down
Hope you have had some relaxing time today after your very busy shows over the weekend which i really enjoyed
Take care Sue

Tina Eldridge said...

Hi Sue and all lovely blog friends

What a beautiful card you have for us today, I really love that die.

I still haven't watched all of the weekend shows, even though I heard them, and you laughing a lot while I was working around the house. Brilliant!

Thank you to everyone that has sent best wishes to my daughter Claire. She did go back to work today, after completely ignoring any parental advice, and she had to ask her LSA to take over a couple of times because she was in pain. I despair sometimes and feel totally helpless. Hence still up, not able to sleep. Hey Ho, what can you do.

Sandra, you made me laugh reading your message today, and I am sorry that me turning up at Ally Pally would have made you sad, It's a good job I can't make it then!. ( really, only joking, it made me chuckle, thank you ).

Pam love and hugs to you and Robbie, sounds like you are both going in the right direction and long may it continue. X

Norah, In my thoughts and prayers, I'm missing the news of your beautiful hills and the beautiful way you give your daily weather forecast about them. When you are ready, we'll all be here for you.

Baby Leo, Baby cuddles

Big hugs Steph, Margaret,Yorkielass, Linda, and Sheila I hope that spesky cold is going on it's way.

Kind regards to all
