And The Last Of The Christmas!


Hi there my crafty friends!  At last the end of Christmas 2014!  Thank you for taking the time to visit the blog and see the cards that never made it to their day on the blog previous to this!  I was thinking that I would do a bit of a reward for those of you that suffered through the eight days of Christmas (even after Christmas!) and I will do a drawing from all the comments left over the last eight days and post out a few of the Christmas cards!  That is the least that I can do.  It will be sort of a pot luck on the cards, however as the actual card samples are sort of scattered in different storage boxes!  Think of it as a sort of belated Christmas surprise if your name is drawn!  I will announce the winner on New Year's Day!  All for now, Sue x

Hey, Sue, so generous of you to offer a drawing for the cards - needless to say, who wouldn't love to have them? Thank you for these days of lots of cards, so much inspiration. Today, particularly like 1 & 2 but have already declared my top favourite as Christmas Blessings from day 1.

Cheryl - what an uplifting story, you must be so proud - hope Joseph enjoys his little moment too.

Thank you Sue for sharing your wonderful cards and for giving me a moment each morning to look forward to in what is a difficult time for me. As always the poinsettia steals the show for me as I absolutely adore the die and stamps, so the first one is my favourite by far and will find itself onto my Pinterest board ready for next years cards x

PharmacyMichele said...

Brilliant christmas cards today-my favourite has to be the Let it Snow card as I was lucky enough to win this die when you were showcasing the christmas selection.

Off to work soon & I'll need to de-ice the car well as we've had heavy frost. Am expecting a busy day so it should go quickly.

Hi Sue & All, all of the cards are very lovely, I especially like the first card. As I can only buy a few new dies (OAP) it's great to see the way you change them to make each card different. I also would like to thank you for all the work you do for us on the blog. Best Wishes Lilian in Cornwall.

CraftySuetoo said...

Good morning Sue and everyone. Have loved all the Christmas cards and am sorry that this is the end of them as you've given me lots of inspiration to get a start for next year. Sorry that I haven't commented for a couple of days but my Mam was rushed into hospital on Saturday morning. 20 miles across the moors in the snow was not fun! She's home now but needs a lot of looking after and will need an operation soon.
Hope you have a wonderful New Year. Sue xxx

Carolyn B said...

Such beautiful cards Sue you have certainly given us plenty of ideas. I have just bought the Believe die ready to use for next Christmas, I've been trying for a while to buy the Let it snow die, but it's out of stock everywhere!

Thank you for your beautiful cards over the past year, and looking forward to seeing what you have in store for us for the New a Year.

Hope you have had a lovely Christmas, and that the New Year will be good to you !

Best wishes, Carolyn B

Hello Sue, it has been wonderful looking through all the lovely cards, and as others have said many of the layouts lend themselves to cards for other occasions. I have a definite favourite today and that is the bauble card. Thank you for planning to give away some of these beautiful creations. I bet everyone is going "let my name be picked". So good luck everyone. Have a lovely day. Bx

Mrs B said...

Hi Sue. Well, you have certainly given us all a lovely eight days of gorgeous Christmas cards, and now a chance to win some of them, thank you Sue: )) (Christmas cards are my favourite type of card so I will miss seeing them for a few months) I am really hard pressed to chose an overall favourite but have realised on looking back at them all that the single snowflake ones, especially the one on day 3-a real stunner-and several other CASish(?) ones are near the top of my list (the snowman and the gingerbread ones are the winners for the cute ones of course, I would love to see more of these please, as then there is something for every age and taste) Just how you are going to beat all of the wonderful Christmas cards you have made this year I don't know, I can't wait to see though : ))
Good luck Wilsonettes, my fingers are firmly crossed for New Years day. What a great start to the New Year!
Sending my daily hugs to everyone. Take care.

cr@fty said...

Good morning Sue
I've thoroughly enjoyed looking at your Christmas cards this week and you've given us all loads of inspiration for next years cards. But with different dies etc the layouts could work throughout the year. I haven't got a favourite (bet that surprised you) because each one is beautiful. I've pinned every one so that I can look and get inspiration when I need it.
Thank you for all your hard work and your generosity to all of us we appreciate everything you do, this blog ROCKS!

Love all the cards but especially the clean simplicity of the first one today.It certainly has not been a chore looking at all your beautiful cards but a treat.Thank you for sharing them with us all.

barbiepinkfairy said...

Have loved them all but particularly like number one! Don't know how you have the ideas

Off to fat club this morning and work tonight - life is getting back to normal! I had a text from a friend who now lives in London last pm and thought great he must be up for Christmas can meet for a coffee - yes he is up for Christmas but his Mum is on ICU he found her collapsed and had to break in when he got home ? She had been there 2 /3 days. I am meeting him at the hospital later just hoping this isn't the start of my New Year. I always say if I had known what was facing me on Jan 1 st 2012 I would never have got out of bed! Have never been a New Year fan so will be staying in and going to bed early! Bah Humbug!

Well ladies have a good day, stay warm and get crafty xxx

Cheryl, you are an inspiration - so upbeat enjoy the football, love to Norah and those ill or struggling xxx

Hi Sue well I think you have saved the best til last as every one of the cards today are beautiful. The embossing is wonderful and the gold poinsettia really stand out for me. Just realised there's not many bows on the Christmas cards, you don't need them but I know there are some that prefer not to see them lol. Thank you for sharing your cards and for letting us all have the chance to win some, what a treat. Have a great day and stay warm. Love Diane G xxxx
CraftySueToo hope your mum recovers soon, what a worry for you, especially with the snow. Drive carefully and keep warm xxxx

Hi Sue,
Another fabulous collection of cards and I'm quite sad it's the last of the Christmas cards. I think the bauble one is my favourite of today but I don't think I can choose an overall winner as there have been so many lovely ones. CradtySue hope your Mam gets better soon. Barbiepinkfairy awful about your friend's mum, hope she improves in ICU . Off to Bamburgh today for a bracing walk along one of my favourite beaches in the country. Love and hugs to each and everyone of you. Love Alison xxx

teaselgirl said...

Hi Sue, I have enjoyed looking at all your Christmas cards in the happy knowledge that I had finished all mine and could relax! You have re ently used what looks like a Christmas bell stamp several times. Could you confirm what it is and who makes it. It looks as if it co-ordinates with one of your dies, but so far I have failed to find it. Happy New Year, crafty hugs.

Not alone with being only too happy to see the eight days of Christmas cards. It would have been appropriate to have made them last over twelve days!

Saba said...

Hi Sue
Thank you so much for 8 days of truly inspirational cards. It has been a real treat. Today's favourite for me has to be the Let It Snow, I adore that die and have used it to make all my special cards this year, only down side to that was having been subjected over and over to a certain video by my grandchildren, I was humming along with each and every card I made Let it Snow, Let it Snow........
Good luck to each and every one for the surprise draw, thank you again Sue, you are so generous.

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Hi Sue and all Wilsonettes. At last my fingers feel capable of feeling the keyboard !
It's been so enjoyable and inspirational looking through your wonderful selection of festive cards, I know you have been creating for some time (how do I say that without making you feel 'old') which you're not, better stop right there before the hole gets bigger lol, but day after day you give us something different, give us new idea's and ways to use your dies - HOW do you do it Sue ? Ive never made one single card the same as another, and I find it brain numbing to have to make each card different, especially with no artistic or crafty background, I get totally shattered, so with all tv samples and blog samples I cant help but admire you. These past few days have been a sheer delight, even with the high low techniques, the guilding etc its been a joy to share such a wonderful selection on this fantastic blog, and now you are showing your generosity yet again by giving us the opportunity to look after one of your W. O. W.'s (Ive been so lucky to receive one) so if my name isnt on the list, I wont mind at all, it will be SO nice to see our regular friends get the chance to be lucky.
Its SO cold at the moment that im struggling to 'work' with my daft little fingers almost everything I try to hold ends up on the floor so I better not get my embossing powders or iced snow OR my midnight snow out or I can see a major disaster happening lolbut Im determind to make at least 1 card made today ! I gave up yesterday after nipping my fingers with the scissor's and didnt feel anything lol ! Dangeroso me thinks !
Janet... Couldnt help but think of you when I heard how awful things are travel wise in France, thank goodness you travel back well before the festive season.
I hope you have all had a lovely time over the past few days and my thoughts have been with our friends that wouldnt have such a wonderful time (you know who you are) xxx
So today I send my usual hugs and love to you all.
Stay warm and safe whatever your day brings.
Thank you ALL for being YOU.

Hi Sue,
your gallery of Christmas cards over the last few days has been amazing.
There are so many I like very much and I have filed them away to go back to for inspiration.
It will be lovely in the Lakes Margaret corgiowner. We have the three peaks(Ingleborough, Whernside and Penyghent) on our doorstep in the Yorkshire Dales also the fabulous Ingleton Waterfalls.
I always love the Howgills covered with snow.

Keep warm everyone.
Love and hugs
Meg

Hi Sue and all

What a shame I now feel that Xmas is over as we will not be having any more of your beautiful Xmas cards this year, they have been marvellous and I now have to set up Pinterest to keep these beautiful cards where I can find them for next year.
Thank you Sue for your fabulous designs and your generosity in completing a draw too, I would just love to win one of your amazing cards and todays really are impossible to pick a favourite from

Well done Sue

Paula said...

I am kind of sad that this is the last of the cards Sue, it was fun to see Christmas all in one place. How nice of you to offer some up.

Myra from Florida said...

They are all wonderful. My favorite of these is the ornaments. I think I can do that! You are so very talented. I think that's great to do what you love all the time. Everyone's dream.

Dawn Holben said...

Hello Sue, wow another set of beautiful cards and I am definitely not fed up with seeing them. My favourite of all the cards so far has to be todays one using the bauble die and the believe die.
I just love the colours.
but they have all been beautiful and stunning.
What a nice gesture that you are doing and I wish everyone luck in receiving one of these wonderful cards, I do hope I will be one of the lucky ones. lol

Craftysusan said...

Thanks Sue, that is very generous of you to do an extra draw. I love today's cards. Wish there was a short description of the ingredients used. I think you have used vellum to emboss on and if so it looks stunning. Will give I
It a try to see if I get the same effect.

Patricia said...

Good afternoon Ssue,
Another stunning selection, no favourites LOVE them all.
Once again you are being so generous to us, thank you very much, really appreciate what you do for us.

Love today's cards Sue, would be nice to own oneofthem. Maxie T

scrAPpamondo said...

Hi Sue, also today here there is a fabulous compilation of gorgous cards!! Your talent is stunning!
I love them all, but I really adore the fourth card, the holly branches looks so great on the embossed background and the bauble shapes are so much lovely on the back patterned papers!
Thanks for the inspiration that you give us and for the beauty that we can see and enjoy

Jill Liddle said...

In my opinion you have saved the best till last. I cannot say which is my favourite as they are all gorgeous.

sued99 said...

I don't feel I've suffered at all. Quite the reverse in fact. Some of the cards have been a real inspiration and I'm almost, but not quite, inspired enough to make cards for next Christmas!

Myra said...

Hi Sue,
I think this is the day in which I have liked each card equally! I loved using the Joy and Believe dies. Your super tip of cutting two and shadowing really made them pop! Thank you so much. It is so kind of you to give these gorgeous cards away - but so Sue! Even if we don't win we'll be pleased for those who do and I have my Sue File!
Very frosty here today but sunny too. I much prefer this to rain but appreciate it isn't good for those who really suffer in the cold .
CraftySueToo and Barbiepinkfairy - thinking of you both and praying the Mums will be ok and thinking too of the families involved.
I wonder what the Ochils look like today - just hope they bringing you a little comfort and joy, Norah. xx
Sending love to all dear friends on this blog. Take care!
Lots of love ,
Myra P

Jacquie said...

Hi Sue,

I do hope you had a wonderful Christmas with your family. I have been absent this past week as I was away at my Daughters for Christmas. I have just looked through all your wonderful posts full of Christmas cheer that I missed, a beautiful array of Christmas cards, plenty of inspiration for us all.

May I take this opportunity to wish you and your family a very Happy New Year, I look forward to all you have for us in 2015. I had a most wonderful gift from my Husband of 8 of your dies, four from the French Collection, two from the Scandinavian Collection and two from the finishing touches collection, including my favourite the Ivy. So I am looking forward to playing lol!

All the very best Sue.

Love & Hugs

Jean Bullock said...

Wonderful cards as usual. I have greatly enjoyed your Christmas card parade. I thought I would make a clever comment about which card I hoped I could win, so I went to my Sue Wilson pinterest board to look for my favorites and I realized that I would not be able to choose. While I was there, I noticed that 27 people followed my Sue Wilson board. I surely hope they were smart enough to come to the website and follow you directly so they wouldn't miss out on seeing any of your cards. I am quite excited for the chance to win one of your cards. Thank you so much.

camelot67 said...

Hi Sue,

I too have loved seeing all your Christmas samples and I have to say I think you've probably saved some of the best 'till last. Thank you for sharing ALL of them with us I know it's been a joy as far as I'm concerned. Enjoy the rest of your day.
Margaret A.

Janice K said...

Thank you for all the wonderful inspiration for our Christmas cards, I've really enjoyed seeing them all. Your new holly embossing folder is stunning. Great news about the draw and very generous of you.x

Maureen Killen said...


Good afternoon Sue, and all the ladies,
Another great batch of Christmas cards which can be adapted for other occasions, with maybe the exception of the bauble cut out card.
I've just got back from the madness that is Newcastle city centre, the shops are mayhem. Had to go to the bank otherwise would not have ventured near.
Best wishes to all our poorly friends, and those who are looking after them.
Alimecca, enjoy Bamburgh. George used to play cricket there in the shadow of the castle from when Rachel was just a baby until she was about 15. We have such happy memories, it was idyllic.
Stay warm everyone and look after yourselves xx

Dear Sue After being after being away for the holidays and finally home. I have caught up with all your posting and have loved to see the Christmas cards that you did not manage to post. They are great ideas for next year! lol.

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone.

Take Care Love Michelle S xxx

Patricia Howarth said...

Hi Sue, I have truly enjoyed this 'journey' through your Christmas card samples, it has been 'heaven'. My favourite of today's offerings is the 'Believe' Bauble card, it is stunning !! Thank you for all your inspiration over the past 12 months, and I am already planning next year's Christmas cards with your inspiration.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Bejay Roles said...

Hi Sue, Ah well, it had to end eventually didn't it. I've really loved seeing all the different cards over the past few days. I have to say that the first one of this final few reminds me of an intricately decorated cake, it's just so beautiful. Of course, I've loved all of them for different reasons. I can't wait to see what you have in store for us in the new year. As always, thanks so much for sharing with us. x

Tricia said...

Today's selection is my favourite with the 1st one being my most favourite favourite - if you know what I mea! It's difficult to choose because they are all so beautiful and it's so good of you to take the trouble to post them for us. Happy New Year to you and yours. x

barbara macaskill said...

What gorgeous cards!! I would be ever so thankful if you could tell me how you did the black background on the Joy card today! It is amazing and I would love to be able to recreate it!!! Thank you so much for sharing all of these lovely cards with us over the last 8 days! Whoever is the lucky winner will be blessed beyond measure!! Have a wonderful New Year's Eve!!!

TOB said...

Love these cards. What a lovely thing for you to do Sue.

Hi Sue. There was not one card I did not like. I will certainly use some of the ideas for next time round and, of course, many of them can be adapted for other purposes. Hope you had a great Christmas.

Ecco of Sheffield said...

afternoon Sue
Definitely late for me but have been supermarketing and now definitely everything is in place for the next few weeks here in Burgundy!!
You have certainly done yourself proud over the last few days and your gifts have been absolutely beautiful; each and everyone of them.

I hope everyone has had a good Christmas and managed some time with all their family; friends but mostly for yourselves. We all need some 'me' time and I'm sure that not many manage that.

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

KathR said...

Mary Mac said...

Hi Sue, I have thoroughly enjoyed your 'Christmas card showing' over the last number of days. Such magnificent and original work. It has been difficult to pick a fav. each day and today is no exception - I almost had to 'phone a friend'!
So, joint 1st is: "Let it Snow" and Christmas Greetings".
To win one of your beautiful cards would be a wonderful start to 2015.

Hi Sue

Will now look forward to more inspiration in 2015.

granny sue said...

Hi Sue. Saw the first card and just knew it was going to be my favourite of the day. I was wrong, I like them all. I will be sorry to see the end of your Christmas cards, they are beautiful. Sue x

Gail Chase said...

I love the first card today! I don't recognize the background embossing though- which is it? I've loved all the Christmas cards, lots to think about for next year.

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, numbers one and three for me today but two & four are not far behind. My overall favourite though is still number four from day 2 - the red & white diagonal cut with the bow.

How generous and typical of you to give us a chance to win a card. I am sure everyone will be sitting with fingers crossed :-)

Myra P - you would have been lucky to see the Ochil Hills today. A very heavy frost that has not thawed at all and a fog (so thick in places you could cut it) that has not lifted all day. I really should have gone to the Post Office with a parcel today but couldn't even bear to step outside the door it is so cold.

Stay safe and warm, everyone.
Frances

Marianne's Craftroom said...

Mary Blight said...

Hi Sue & ALL the Wilsonettes! I would like to wish you all a BELATED MERRY CHRISTMAS! I hope you all had a good time, with lots of presents & plenty of food & drink? I had a lovely quiet time, although this time of year is a sad time for us, as my Dad passed away three years ago today! I am also waiting to go into hospital to have a small operation. I was hoping that it would be done before Christmas, but I cannot have it done until 22nd January! Still, it has to be done! Well Sue, you have done a amazing job, with all the Christmas cards you have shown us & today's was ABSOLUTELY STUNNING, as usual! I LOVE the colour combination, it really looks elegant! I would love to go into the draw to have a chance of winning! Take care of yourselves & I hope that you all have a HEALTHY, HAPPY NEW YEAR! Love, Mary Blight XXX

Joanna Dickson said...

Hi Sue.
I'm A bit later today. Once again they are all lovely. The only one I wasn't as keen on was the last one. Purely as I think I would have added a ponsettia or something. I really like the aperture baubles. So effective.
Would love to win one of your stunning cards to.... that would make my Christmas.
Hope everyone has stayed safe and warm.
Lots of love
