Orpan Cards

 Happy New Year's Eve!!  Following in the tradition of years past, every last day of the year I post my "orphan" cards.  This is the term that I give to the cards that I have made during the year that just didn't "sing" to me when they were finished!  For one reason or another, they just didn't work so I was never pleased enough with them to put them up on the blog.  In short, they need a loving home!  Someone that will care for them and not just bury them in a box!  Each year, I give away the lot to one person whose name is drawn from those that leave a comment on this post.  However, just so you know, I am still looking for one of these cards, so not sure if it will be complete lot yet or not.   So if you feel that you could give a loving home to these cards, just leave me a comment.  I will draw the winner and announce it on Friday's blog post (Jan. 2nd).  Have a safe and Happy New Year!  All for now, Sue x

Give a card a home aw bless how could one not offer especially when they come from such great stock Sue. There are one or two in this lot that are little stunners and I for one would re-home them willingly. xx

Do love your orphan day, Sue - all the cards are interesting and so different. Strangely, particularly like number 2 (although never took to that stamp set) - it has an almost oriental feel to it.
Thank you so much for all your hard work during 2014 and your ongoing generosity - it's been quite a year for you with all the launches and just so pleased that they were so successful - no surprise there!!

alimecca said...

Hi Sue,
There are some very lovely cards amongst these poor little orphans and as they are all looking for a home, I would gladly offer them a loving place for them to live out their days! I am up early today as tv being delivered between 7 and 2 pm - it will be my luck it's 2pm! I would like to take this opportunity to wish you and your family a very happy new year and hope that 2015 brings you success and happiness.
I also send the same good wishes to all fellow Wilsonettes especially Yorkielass, TOB, Myra,Steph,Norah,Maureen,,Tres,Janet,Cameeli,Pam,,Lynne m,Lindsay, Cheryl, and I apologise if I've missed people ( my brain is not awake yet!) love and hugs Alison xxx

Mrs B said...

Hi Sue. I always love seeing your "Orphan" cards and this years are as beautiful as usual. I love, love, love the 2 Thanks ones and the Ooops a daisy one (I'm sorry to say that I need to get this sentiment as I am so forgetful at sending cards on time!) in particular, but can honestly say that ALL of them are wonderful. My fingers are even more tightly crossed now, which makes it very hard to craft! Good Luck to all in the draw : ) Wishing you and all Wisonettes a very Happy New Year's Eve, whatever you do. Sending my daily hugs to everyone. Take care.

Ecco of Sheffield said...

good morning Sue
How can you call your beautiful gifts 'orphans'? I only wish half of my creations were anywhere near your mark. I have just the perfect wall ready and waiting for your work's of art. I wouldn't be too envious if they went to one of my Wilsonette Sisters (just a little lol). All of them have their own beauty.

Norah - it just made my day when I saw your name yesterday. I know how much 'Aunty Jean' meant to you but now you know she is free of all pain and with Mum together again. My heart and prayers are with you always. Take your time and when you're ready we will have your wonderful remembrances again.
Sandra - I hope your week-end went well with your in-laws and that you didn't do too much.

It may be New Year's Eve but crafting needs to be done so that's what will happen in this house after breakfast of course.

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.

Marianna Hammer said...

Oh, these would be so welcome at my home!! I really love these, and I can't understand how they could be orphants.....

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Hi Sue and all Wilsonettes. DONT sing ?!!? : 0 well I hear a massive opera going on here today, they sure DO have the X - Factor and always my number one in the charts. Poor tone deaf cards, these beauties have a home somewhere amongst us and im sure one of us will hear the most beautiful choir sing when the postie knocks the door, so I wish you all luck.
If those were the one's with no voice Sue, wish my deaf cards looked that good, if I gave all the cards away I didnt like, id never be able to buy the cardstock I need to make more deaf cards ! Tina E and I have our own descriptive word for my deaf cards LOL.
So as we come to the end of another year and get ready for a new start, Id like to thank you for all your hard work, your generosity, support and friendship in 2014. Without you I wouldnt have found the true wonderful friends Ive made here, without them I wouldnt have found such wonderful crafters, those lovely friends that have inspired me and helped me along when my brain has turned into mush ! So I have an awful lot to thank you for Sue. So my New Years Eve wish for you is that 2015 continues to be kind to you, that your sucess doubles, and you remain happy and healthy, because if anyone deserves all that then YOU do, as you have bought an awful lot of happiness to many of us here.
To our dear friends that have struggled with health, pain, upset and sadness, my only wish for you is that 2015 starts to get and feel better for you. Its been a long and lonely year for some, but Particraft Wilsonettes will stay strong for you.
Have a good day whatever your plans are, and I cant wait to share 2015 with you all. Should you just be passing by to look at this wonderful collection, maybe 2015 will be the year you start to leave regular comments rather than just a quick peek, we look forward to MORE numbers here next year to show appreciation to a wonderful woman with a wonderful heart, so please help raise Particraft to numero ONE.
Love to all.

Morning Sue, wow, how could you not be pleased with all these beautiful cards! I love them all and if I was lucky enough to win them they would be lovingly cared for in my house. In fact the Minister's wife of the church I go to wants to start a craft group and she has asked me to help her, so these cards would be lovely inspiration for the group. Happy New Year to you and everyone on the Blog. Love Jean xxx

Looking at your definitition, I think all my cards could be classed as orphans. Even the ones that did not make it to the blog are works of art. Hope you have a wonderful New Year everyone

CraftySuetoo said...

Good morning Sue and everyone. Your cards are beautiful and like all orphans deserve a good home (my new craft room is finished and ready to help!). Thank you so much for all your hard work, blogging on a daily basis cannot be easy. You inspire so many people and provide a platform for many friendships to form.
Norah, it was lovely to hear from you, I'm very sorry about your special auntie. Saba, sending you and Val special thoughts and wishes.
To all my friends - because that's how I think of you - I wish a very happy, healthy, and crafty New Year. Sue xxx

Good morning Sue,
Well, I'm with everyone in giving your orphans a well-deserved home. Yep, there are one or two in that bunch who don't sing loudly but that's because they're in exalted company.
Thank you for all the inspiration you've given us unstintingly EVERY day and wishing you a HAPPY, HEALTHY and SUCCESSFUL NEW YEAR FULL OF JOY AND LAUGHTER.
That goes for all my fellow Wilsonettes.

Good morning, Sue! What an interesting bunch your orphans are! And it's heartening, in a way, that 'Our Sue' has moments, like the rest of us, when the card just doesn't sing! But they are all beautiful, Sue, and I'm sure that not one of us Wilsonettes would turn them away from the door! :) Happy New Year, everyone....see you all in 2015!!

Poor little cards. They all gave something special about them even if they didn't turn out quite how you expected. There are lots of us who would give them a home.

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE XXXX

Rosemarie said...

Morning Sue, my family always tease me for taking in waifs and strays, so I think these poor little orphan cards would be very much loved in my home. Strangely enough there is a space on my craft room wall that would be a perfect home for them. Nice and warm, they might hear the odd naughty word when I don't have a singing card, but they can put their fingers in their ears.

Happy, Healthy, and Peaceful New Year to everyone on Sue's blog, it is my lifeline x

Hello Sue
Well I must say I would quite happily give your "orphan cards" a good home. I would be pleased if I had created any of these and mastered some of the techniques you have used. I really like Numbers 2,8,9 and 10. The lucky Wilsonette who wins this "Wonder of Wilson Collection" will be over the moon, what a wonderful New Year Gift!
Thank you Sue for all the inspiration you have given us this year, for your generosity in sending out your cards and dies and especially for your Frienship and your wonderful Blog.

Morning Sue, Pam and all wilsonettes. Oh Sue I would never call these gorgeous cards orphans, they are created by a really fantastic person who has a humungous family of followers, each and every one of us would love them, I would be honoured to receive them and would definately find them a good home, who ever is lucky enough to win them I congratulate them.
I would like to wish everyone a very happy, safe and healthy new year 2015, it is amazing how this year has flown past.
For me I have been lucky enough to have a new granddaughter, she is adopted and has come to a wonderful couple, she has really put the icing on the cake for us. Hugs June Smith xxxx

hi Sue
These cards are really great what's not to love. I'd love to be the proud owner of even one of your creations. I'd like to thank you for all your kindness to use all throughout the year. You're always happy to have a chat to anyone who stops by your stand at Ally Pally, and your always happy to share your knowledge with us all. I wish you and all your family a HAPPY NEW YEAR. I hope that 2015 is another fantastic year for you.
I also wish all the Wilsonettes a harp new year as well. Crafty hugs to all in need of one today, I know that some will be celebrating without husbands partners etc.

I feel I am just echoeing the masses - the vast majority of your orphan cards are fabulous and would have been worthy a post.

It is good to know that even the professionals sometimes feel that despite their best efforts the idea just didnt quite work how we wanted.

Dear Sue and Wilsonettes best wishes for 2015 may it be kind to all.

These orphans could come to my house any day. A couple I wouldn't say are Wilson cards but a couple are stunners and definitely not orphans!

Sue, may your success and talent continue to grow and ensure my bank account is regularly depleted!

I don't particularly like New Year so a quiet one for me. My friends mum remains very sick on ICU at best a very long journey ahead but as I know patients often can surprise.
Norah, lovely to see your post yesterday so sorry you have suffered another bereavement, stay strong.
Cheryl may 2015 see your health improve and see you get back to full strength.
Saba, thinking of your Sister hope treatment is successful ditto to Gail's husband
Pam may this year be kinder
Steph, a lovely friend I have found in cyber world that is lovely in real life too.

To all Wilsonettes you are all unique and special May we continue to support each other through the ups and downs of 2015. If I had one wish for 2015 it would be that finally we made true advances in the treatment of cancer and really made in roads in to showing it who is boss. I would say that there will be only a hand full on here who have not been affected by this insidious and clever disease that loves to catch us unawares and leaves devastation in its wake.
Love to you all and I look forward to sharing 2015 with you xxx

SerenePolly said...

Thanks Sue - I would willingly give these (in fact any of your cards) a home. I am the lucky owner of one via the C&C card pick at the end of one of your shows (also signed by Dawn Bibby) and I am sure it would like some company on the shelf!

Thank you Sue for all your inspiration during the year and very best wishes for 2015.

Anne Crawford said...

I would certainly love to have these cards as there are some wonderful elements and techniques used that I could learn from, we all have cards that don't sing to us from time to time when trying out different ideas , but that's when we learn and discover and get excited over new styles and designs, ( I think it's called being creative Lol! ) anyway I love number four and ten in particular !
Norah , it was lovely to hear from you, you have had such a sad year. I hope 2015 is going to be full of new beginnings and lots of happiness for you and your family xo.
Saba thinking of you and your sister and sending best wishes.
Cameeli I can almost feel your excitement!
HAPPY NEW YEAR ! To you Sue and all your family , and thank you again for all your generousity .
Also special thoughts to Myra P , Yorkielass June, Maureen K, Cheryl Alimecca nana Tina ! Diane, Mrs B, Pam and all the others whose kind wishes meant so much earlier this year "All the Best for 2015"
Love and Hugs to all xo

How could one not have a go at giving one of your cards a home. Even if they may not sing to you they will always have some elements of inspiration to us mere mortals that need a starting point. Keep up the good work and thanks once again for all the samples throughout the year.

Hazel said...

Hello Sue,
I will be honest. I like them all but there is one which is not my style. Guess which one is it...
I´ll tell you: numer ONE is not so beautiful. But that´s okay everybody has a different meaning...
All the others are great as ever.
Have a fabulous New Year´s Eve party

Lynn Dalby said...

Hello Sue and all

I think it is very good of you to show cards that you are not happy with for one reason or another. Personally, I think they all have something special about them.

I love the orphan day idea, I would be delighted to give them a home as I am sure may others would. I know this is going to be more work for you but could I suggest that the love be shared by having lots of lucky winners.

Thank you for all the sharing this year and may I wish everyone a very happy 2015.

Best wishes

I think the cards are great and best wishes to the person who is the lucky winner. I am sure they will go to a good home.

I love your orphans as I do everything you share. The cool thing is even for those who don't get to give them a happy home we can case them and still enjoy your creativity. Thanks for sharing Sue.

Sandra said...

Good Morning Sue & lovely blog friends,
Well what a year!
Your Orphan cards, poor things , not matching up to your exacting standards! I think that any of us would gladly give them a loving home, they would be used for inspiration. To look close up at the different techniques you have and products and the effect the products give, so there is a lot to be gained from winning the chance of adopting thus poor little beauties!
My dearest friend Sue, wow what a year for you, you have launched your various die ranges and they have all been a resounding success, you have given us another 365 days of amazing inspiration both with your products and others! I would personally like to thank you for the 'kick in the pants' at the start of the year to get my head back in the right place, I was in a very dark place and your email surprised me , made me sit and think about Life, it set me back in the mind to pick up my crafting tools and start creating. Thank you for that x the other thing I would like to show my gratitude for is the gift of friendship not only the wonderful friendship with the ladies on the blog, who is look forward to catching up with on a daily basis, it's strange how we become so close to people that you haven't actually met, I love hearing about their day and I miss them when they aren't around, the greatest gift this year has been Pat (Witney) & Sue (mrs B), who would have thought the three strangers meeting one day for coffee, with only one thing in common (Particraft)!, would form the most amazing friendship, I love these ladies like they have been in my life for years, they have given me something to look forward to every week, for many years I gave been totally house bound and as a result I was terrified to leave the house without Paul, the trust up have for these two ladies is such that I can leave the house with eirther of them without going into a full scale panic attack! You too gave bought more to my life than you will ever know, so I want to thank you Sue (W), it was you that bought us together. I am looking forward to seeing what amazing gifts you bring us in 2015, I know already that they will be a 100% success!
Sue I wish you another year of health, wealth and happiness, no one deserves it mire than you xxxx
To each and everyone of you wonderful friends, thank you for your good wishes, love, kindness and support in 2014, I look forward to lots more of it in 2015, I wish each and everyone of you everything you wish yourselves and lots more! I would also like 2015 to be the year that I get to meet a lot more of you xxxx
Good Health and Huge crafty hugs to all,
Sandra xxxxx

Good home offered to orphan cards!!!
Your rejects are another woman's must haves.

Sue, this is a wonderful blog, everyone does care about the people on it and even if we do not mention them every day, they are in our thoughts.
I wish you and all the friends, and their families the very best of health, happiness and peace in 2015 xx
Thank you

Margaret corgi owner said...

Hello Sue and everyone
What a lovely collection of orphans who would not show them love and care I ask myself, they are all different, but they do have a common bond, they are all made by you and that just makes them extra special.

Congratulation Sue on a wonderful year with all you have achieved wishing you continued success and health in the coming new year, that wish is extended to those that you love too.

Happy New year wishes to everyone for a magical 2015.

Hugs
Margaret corgi owner

Wishing you a lovely new years eve. May today past in the way you want it to.
what a fab name for cards you're unsure of. I usually file mine under B for bin. It's so hard trying to make something that looks wonderful in your head but in reality it's not what you are expecting lol.
I'm still planning to start 2015 off creatively. .. I'm hoping to start a rota as I'm useless with time management.
Here's hoping for a happy and as healthier a year as possible for everyone.

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, I love all of your orphans and would happily re-home each and every one of them. They may not be up to your own high standard but they would teach the lucky recipient lots of different techniques. Should that person be me (everything crossed lol) then I would share them with my friend dianeandchipps and we could become foster mums together. They certainly wouldn't live in a box but would be proudly on display.

Thank you for an amazing year with all your gorgeous new dies and the daily inspiration, we are so lucky to be part of the Wilsonette family.

Happy Hogmanay to all and I wish each and every one of you a Happy, Healthy, Prosperous and Crafty New Year when it comes.

Mary Blight said...

Hi Sue & All The Wilsonettes! Hope you all had a Happy, Peaceful Christmas, with everything you wished for? I had a good Christmas at home with my Mum! I live at home with my Mum, as I am in a wheelchair & need quite a lot of personal care! Christmas is a sad time for me & Mum, as my Dad died on 29th December, 2011. I missed him more than ever this year, as I have had a very bad year, health-wise & he was always very supportive. Unfortunately, my poor Mum has to cope on her own, now & I can see that it is getting very hard for her! I am hoping to have an operation in January, which will be the last one for a VERY long time! Sue, the cards you've posted today are ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL! I would be so thrilled to give any of these 'orphans' a home! You are such an inspirational lady! Keep up your good work! I would like to take this opportunity to wish you ALL A Healthy, Happy New Year! If you are going out tonight, I hope you all stay safe! Looking forward to speaking to you all, next year! Love, Mary XXX

Happy New Year Everyone. I hope that 2015 holds all you could hope for.
It is 1 am here and I have had a lovely evening with beautiful friends and family, watched the local Forster fireworks at 9 pm then the Sydney spectacular on TV at midnight. Ready for 2015 and would love to start it by adopting the beautiful orphan cards, I can already see the person and occasion for a couple of them without even trying.

How could you call them orphans, they are all so gorgeous, my fav is the Oop's a daisy one.
"Oh if only they could flutter their wings and fly to me. I have a loving home just waiting" and a wall to display them, after I share a few with my best friend.

I wish you Sue and your Family a very Happy New Year.

Hi Sue,

I know I for one would love to be able to make such great cards and some of them are certainly "singing" out to me. Can I just take a quick moment to thank you for all the wonderful work you have produced this past year. I've been following your blog since about day one (although it was a while before I started to comment) and can honestly say I have not missed a day! I've loved being a part of your amazing "journey" and am really looking forward to 2015 and all that it holds. So "Thank You"! and I send you my very best wishes for a truly wonderful New Year.
Margaret A.

Tricia said...

They certainly "sing" to me Sue! I can't believe that you don't just love them. My charity "George Thomas Hospice" could definitely make some much needed funds from the sale of these lovely cards - and they certainly wouldn't "be buried in a box". Happy New Year to you and yours and continued success in 2015. x

Hello sue,
I love your orphans - and as for them not singing well I think Gareth Malone would be proud to have them in a choir.
Just starting to sort my cards made last year - some of these can't even hum never mind sing!!!Ha ha.
Mary Blight you and your mum are in my thoughts and prayers and I hope your surgery is successful.
To all the ladies who supported me when my sister was ill and when she passed away and all who sent love and prayers for baby Leo born 3 months early just four days after my sister passed away - you are all loved and appreciated more than you can know.
My love and blessings to you all - may 2015 be a good year for you.
Whenever anyone of you needs a friendly word to help you through just stop by Sues blog and we'll be there for you.

Sue, thank you for all the cards you make to inspire us nobody makes cards like you. Love and hugs to you and your family.
Happy New Year to one and all.

What a wonderful collection, I can't understand them not singing to you because there is a veritable orchestra going on for me. And, as for putting them in a box, you must be joking, they would take pride of place on any Wilsonettes wall, I know they would on mine.
Thank you for a wonderful year of beautiful cards to fill us with inspiration. So looking forward to seeing what you have in store for 2015.

Thank you to all the lovely ladies who wished my sister Valerie Happy Birthday, Prayers, Hugs and thoughts, I really appreciate it, what a special family you are.

Jan, so sorry for you, its never an easy time to loose a loved one, but at Christmas it must be especially hard. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Debbie, happy birthday tomorrow,

and to our lovely Sue, and all her Wilsonettes, Happy New Year and may
2015 be filled with love, hope and happiness.

Saba

We have had a wonderful 2014 with so much inspiration from you and so much love from the members of your blog. Aren't we the lucky ones? These are all fabulous cards and deserve a home and to be cherished - here will do nicely!! Thank you so much for all you do, hugs, Maggie xx (better without a bow)
