A Few Christmas Cards


Hi bloggers!  Every Christmas I have a sort of annual routine where I show all of the Christmas cards that haven't been posted on the blog that year in a single post of Christmas Day.  However, this year, there is going to be a bit of a change to my routine and I hope you won't mind.  I have a couple of issues that I need to address.  Firstly, I have an overwhelming number of Christmas cards left, usually there are about a dozen, but I have about 40 cards! When I did the last Christmas Double Day on Friday, I didn't have a clue that I had so many left either! Secondly, I am a bit shorter on time than usual for this time of year as I am trying to get in a few more days of video filming while I am here on the run up to Christmas.  So my solution for both problems is to give you a week, no eight days of multiple card posts (better than just mere double days!), but without the step by step for each card to save on time.  If, however, there is any particular card that you can't work out, or need to see close ups, just email me directly.  I hope you won't be groaning stop, stop, stop by the end of it all! LOL  All for now, Sue x

Ooooh, Sue, aren't we the lucky ones?! Always a treat to have two-fers, and especially blessed to have a mini-collection and for DAYS and DAYS.
Something to like on every card - clever flower on 1; fab scallops and frame on 2; cute with great embellishment on 3; YES! I love 4; classic elegance on 5.
Thank you so much.
Have visions of you working hard on videos so what about your Christmas preps? Busy people have a way of fitting everything in somehow.

CraftySuetoo said...

Good morning Sue and everyone. We will never moan about you giving us extra gifts Sue! Your double, and now extra, days are a joy and the inspiration you share is very welcome as I still haven't made my Mam's card! I just hope that you have chance for some time for yourself and your family over Christmas.
Congratulations Nanna Tina on your new arrival. Pam, take care outside in this awful weather, those gusts of wind seem like they will knock people off their feet. Sue xxx

Ecco of Sheffield said...

morning Sue from a very dark and very very windy Sheffield.
Sue I/we can never have too many pieces of your Craft Master pieces and it doesn't matter what the subject matter is. So just bring all of them on the more the merrier!
Today's gifts are just lovely and so different in formats. Cannot wait to see more of your beautiful collection.

Well today Mr Tesco will arrive later than usual so will have to cope with goods to sort (I really do not like putting groceries away; I don't know why but it's just one of those things and I definitely do not want anyone in the kitchen when I'm doing it!!!) I then have to start thinking about packing up crafting materials to take away with me as I'm being reminded on a regular basis.

I hope you're organised Sue with all prep done and are going to have a very well deserved piece of R&R over Christmas and New Year or is that asking too much?

To all under the weather for whatever reason I hope you feel better soon. To everyone please take care and stay safe. See you tomorrow.

As yesterday was the shortest day it's all getting better now.

Nanny Jo said...

Congrats to the winners and hope you Sue your family and everyone else has a wonderful Christmas. Keep the cards coming Sue. Hugs Heather x

Hi Sue,

no, keep'em coming!...they'll be good inspiration to get us started next year and as most of us are working to a budget it takes a little while to collect all the dies we want...I mean need!...

Hello Sue
What a nice surprise this morning to read that we are going to see
another lovely selection of your cards. It is a real treat to look forward to in the days ahead.
I fogot to say how lovely it was to see the pictures of you with the Dolphins in the Bahamas. That must have been a wonderful experience for you.
I will be busy rushing around today clearing away all the Christmas Card stash and tidying the house, sadly a friend's funeral tomorrow, baking Wednesday and then off to family on Christmas Day until Boxing Day. Then next Sunday we will be entertaining the rest of the Family.
Here's wishing you, your family and our Blog Family a Merry Christmas.

Hi Sue. This is a fantastic Christmas present to us all, eight days of lots of wonderful cards, thank you : )) When you see several cards together like this you see just how talented you are at making a variety. I musty admit that the gingerbread couple card is my favourite, I know you like these cute cards and so do I. Any chance of seeing a few more like this next year? It's so good to have ideas for a wide range of styles. I hope you are going to get some rest this Christmas Sue!

Hi Sue, I'm really looking forward to your next few posts with all the cards. I feel all Christmasy now :).

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Hi Sue and all winter wonderful Wilsonettes. Im trying so hard to stay awake to post this comment ! I know I speak for all of us when I say " you wont hear us grumble about the change in you annual routine" goodness me Sue, we cant get enough of your gorgeous work, the more the better the more the happier we all are. This first collection are just mouth watering, each one has its own personality and reason behind it(your family are so lucky receiving your cards, I bet they cant wait. Oh wow, I can just try and imagin all 3 wedding cards you just made for your family tripple wedding recently, I bet they were stunning. That's one poke to wake me from Mr L !!
I have just sat down after re-organising my Christmas stamps, papers, you name it, boxed it all up and put it away 'till next year. Unfortunatly I missed last posting so Im so sorry to my lovely friends here that I was hoping to send a card to, I was running round in painful circles trying to perform miracles for market and picking up a largeish order for 7 cards also required for yesterday... Something had to give ! Ive even bought a s**p Christmas card for Mr L today as im so exhausted I dont think I could concentrate hard enough to make the card he so deserves ! I sold more Christmas cards than I expected at market, but not one single *bleep bleep* box LOL ALL those hour's wasted when I could have made friends their cards ! And I cant find any positives from that, as I have some really special friends and no bloomin card for them ! Disgusting.
Well Sue, Im really looking forward to the next few days (poke number 2) to see all the most beautiful cards I will ever see.
Hope you are having the time of your life dear friend.
Many happy exciting congratulations to our dear Nanna Tina on your new little Christmas Prince. May he have a healthy loving life, and may he bring you all so much love and laughter as he grows xxx
Im sending many loving cuddles to our friends that are unwell or feeling down and low, and sending love and thoughts to our missing friends we miss SO much. Ok must go before my head rolls off my neck !
Love you.

No complaints from me either, I could look at your cards all day and if this first collection is anything to go on we are in for a lovely treat everyday for the next week. How do you do it Sue, they are all beautiful but the gold and black one is definitely my favourite.
Good luck with the videos, please take some time for yourself otherwise you will be shattered by Christmas.

Hi Sue,
Fabulous collection of cards and you won't hear me complaining about seeing them! Love the gingerbread men and the wreath. Sorry didn't comment for the last couple of days but the dreaded migraine struck unfortunately. Back in land of the living now thankfully and sending congratulations to the winners from yesterday. Congratulations to nana Tina on the new arrival to your family - how lovely! Sending everyone hugs especially those in pain, having treatment or just feeling down in the dumps. Love Alison xx

Myra said...

Hi Sue, A bit later than usual but been a crazy day! No complaints from this quarter - I could look at and appreciate your cards all day! Maybe not at Christmas as I am a bit frazzled at the moment! Not sure if that's a Lancashire expression or not. That's the trouble with being an exiled Scot!
My favourites today are numbers one, three and four. Thank you Sue. You are a real star!
Thank you to the lovely friends who mentioned washing machine problems - Anne and June - fixed! Engineer found one sock, one colour catcher and one shirt collar stiffener in metal! I don't feel entirely to blame. Lol.
Nana Tina - many congratulations on the birth of baby Joshua. What a lovely start too Christmas.
Steph - so pleased you had a good day on Sunday but realise you are really tired today. Do hope you feel stronger tomorrow.
Norah - my Monday travails have been nothing compared to what you are going through. My love and thoughts are with you. Sending lots of love to Glenochil xx
Lynne M, Lindsay and Sheila , missing you too xxxxxx
Love to all,
Myra P xx
