Thank You For Thinking Of Me

 Good Sunday Morning!  Pale pink (blush card) and chestnut brown for today's offering.  I used the French Collection Provence die insert to cut a pretty shape in the background of the card.  To add a bit more detail, I used the  outer cutting edge die and simply embossed it around the decorative insert.  I cut the Salzberg die from my Austrian die set next out of blush card and layered it up.  I stamped the sentiment using a Coffee Archival ink pad and cut it out with the inner die in the Auvergne set.  I added it to the centre using mounting foam.  I cut a French border out of chestnut card and glued it to the bottom.  I backed the entire piece with blush card so it showed through my decorative insert and below my border.  I scored the bottom of the blush card with a score board to add a bit more detail too.  I made a 3D Dotty bow out of blush card and added it to the centre of my border as an embellishment.  A blush card mat layer was paper pierced, then a thin chestnut card mat and a final blush mat to complete the card.  The finished dimensions are 6 1/2" x  8 1/4" in size.

Now for the winners of this week's comment game.  They are:
Serene Polly!!!
Ecco of Sheffield!!!
Carol Worwood!!!

For the extra qualifying post of Wed. Jan. 15th, the winners are:
Jackie Meechan!!!
Kerryn Ashton!!!
Izzy !!!

Congratulations!  Please email me at to confirm your address and claim your prize.  All for now, Sue x

I love it when you make a simpler card and it has that Sue Wilson look, this is lovely Sue. Not sure about the coloring as it looks a bit yellow on my computer but I can use my imagination. xxx

Muriel Kelly said...

Love the style of this card and the dies used but could see it in other colours, blue and white maybe
Have a lovely Sunday everyone

Patricia Youdell said...

Morning Sue
Great card today but not sure about the colour - perhaps it is my laptop.
I especially like the way you used an outside cutting die to emboss a frame

Kitty Davies said...

Morning Sue.
Thank you, the card is lovely, I don't think the computer does the colour justice. Take care every one. Kitty. Many congratulations to all the winners.

Unusual colour combo today, Sue, and looking pretty. As Pat says, like the extra embossing touch, and the French border really is a stunner.
Well done to all the winners - Janet Ecco, perhaps an extra pastry to celebrate?!

Pretty card Sue,. Not sure about the colour, maybe it is my computer.

Like the style of card Sue pity the pink isn't showing through. JJx

Morning Sue. This is a beautiful card. The colourway is a bit different for you but i can see it in loads of different colourways. Like the way you have used the die to emboss the outside edge and the boarder is one of my all time favourites it has a lacey look about it. Another one to add to my try list. Congrats to all the lucky winners. Have a great day everyone.
Best Wishes.

CraftySuetoo said...

Good morning Sue and everyone. As seems to be the consensus so far I'm not sure about the colours, but it doesn't matter as I love the style, especially how you have cut the inner part of the die out and then used the cutting edge to emboss. I also like how you have scored lines in the blush card at the bottom to give it detail.
Congratulations to all the winners. Sue xxx

Clare W said...

GM Sue - this reminds me to use score lines more than I do as they are so effective - lovn that oval as always!

The combination of dies works well, but I am not sure about the colours unless it is the way it has come out on the computer.

I have been catching up on what I have missed of your oh so beautiful cards.

carol edwards said...

Hi Sue lovely card and embossing. Unfortunately the card has come out rather yellow on bigger. Congrats to winnersx

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Sunday Smiles coming your way Sue and to all that visit this freezing snowy morning. Such a beautiful delicate shade of pink, its truley gorgeous, and the chestnut draws its delicate colour out even more. There is nothing to this card I dislike, every die used works so well and each works to show off the beauty of the embossed edges...
Slowely working through the replacement cards for my market baskets and as I decided that this month I wont be able to leave the house due to the cold I can at least do the replacements at a leisurly pace, the down side is that my list of Sue die needs are now put on hold for a few months : ( Mr L has his last birthday starting with 5 looming, wonder if he would like a die or embossing folder as his birthday gift ? LOL.
Many congratulations to all comment winners today, I hear a VERY loud OOO LA LA coming over the channel from our Janet (eco) I agree with oyr P from Wales, another pastry to celebrate ? Hope you ALL enjoy your gift.
To our friends that are finding it a struggle today, woken in pain, or feeling down and low, we send our love and support to you. My basket of cosy hugs is full and waiting for you to take as many as you need, if only virtual hugs could do all we want. No matter what your plans for today I hope its a happy, pleasant day, thinking of those friends that wont be feeling as happy as they wished xx
Really missing our regular friends that have been missing far too long, please come home we all miss you SO much (you know who you are)
Sending much love up and down the country today.

Hi sue
What a beautiful simple card unfortunately the cards come out yellow on my iPad but I do like it congratulations to the winners thankyou tracyw x

Ecco of Sheffield said...

morning Sue from a very very frosty white world here in Burgundy.
I have no doubts about today's gift it is just beautiful. Your colours for today so so compliment each other and your dies are doing all the work. Just as a Sue Wilson piece of art should look.

Sandra - I'm so sorry you had to miss your Friends party but I'm sure she understood. Hope your knee is somewhat better today.
Norah - Thank you for thinking that I have a lot of 'self control' as I find it very difficult as I always prefer sweet things to savoury and always struggle not to indulge when something sweet is around.

It's the most beautiful sight here at the moment the garden just looks as though someone has been out and sprinkled it with Iced Snow. Everything has a white sparkle coating to it and not a sound to be heard as yet. Even the birds seem to be having a lay in. Do not know what the temp is at the moment as Mr E hasn't yet returned from his morning excursion.

Am now off to do a little sing and dance (well at least in my mind) as I'm one of the very lucky ladies this morning seeing my name amongst the comment winners. I shall have to go back and just make sure that it's there. How lucky am I!!!! Congratulations to all the winners.

To all in pain, unwell or suffering I hope your day gets better. To everyone please take care and stay safe. See you tomorrow.

Sam Smithard said...

Hi Sue My Dear Friend,

Hello Sue,

Wonderful mix & match of die sets today, they work together beautifully...and the extra embossed frame and score lines add even more interest to a super card...I'm getting a yellowish tinge to the pink as well though but I can imagine the colours in real life as I have both of them here in my stash...having said that choc and custard would work just as well for this design!...

Thrilled to bits to find my name among the extra qualifying post winners!!!...couldn't believe it at first, just sat here looking at it for several minutes before it sank

Congrats to all the other winners, we'll all be walking on air today...


Anonymous said...

Hi Sue - I really like the way you use your dies and the border die looks very effective. I've begun to do more scoring on my cards now whenever there is a big space as it definitely finishes it off. Not too sure about the colours as I don't use many browns but this card would look great in any colour I think. Congratulations to all the lucky winners. Best wishes

Mrs B said...

Hi Sue. A lovely card for us today. I love the chestnut brown, it is a beautiful colour.
Pat S, Witney. Belated Happy Birthday wishes to you. You kept that one quite didn't you my lovely friend! Sorry it's a day late. I hoe you had a lovely day yesterday : )
Congratulations to all of the Comment winners : )
Sending my daily hugs to everyone. Take care.

marg said...

Hello Sue
I thought the colours different today! I like the embossed lines and the Dies used!
Awoke to a huge mist hanging over the Avon Gorge... looks like a ribbon running along the river and under the Suspension Bridge !
It usually happens in the summer with heat and pollution from traffic!
Take care

Anne Crawford said...

Love the design of this card! the colours don't seem to be showing up true but we can use our imagination , I always love the French border die it really does give a lovely effect and the dotty bow finishes it beautifully.
Congratulations to all the lucky winners, enjoy your prizes!

Craftysusan said...

Love the composition of the card Sue but I'm not keen on brown so I would use another colour when making it myself. Pink or lilac are really my type of colours. Doesn't mean your card isn't beautiful though. It would be a dull world if we all liked the same colours. Congrats to all the comment game winners. x

Sue from Wiltshire said...

Design and colours used are very elegant. Really like it.

Janet hampson said...

Hi Sue,
I like when you make cards that I have the dies for...this one being no exception, LOVELY CARD!
Because of all the comments about the colour I decided to find the colours in my stash and put them together, and yes it does work they look good together and a change from usual colours.

Morning Sue,
I just love the design of this card. I'm not getting the true colours on my computer it looks yellow and brown, so I'll imagine the blush pink, pale pink and brown is a colour combination that I like very much.
To all of the winners enjoy your gift.

Rose in Chester said...

Hi Sue,
Apart from the colours (and that must be the way it comes out on my computer, too), this card is gorgeous. Love the idea of simply embossing around the insert - how DO YOU THINK OF all these little but effective things?
Blush pink and brown is a lovely colour combo, just comes out as a weird yellow not pink. Anyway, this card (as all of yours) would be gorgeous in any colour combo, stunning in black and white/red/green/..............
Hugs, Rose

What a fabulous combination of dies, they all work so well together, you can't beat the French Border for that extra fancy finish! The colour hasn't come across too well, but we get the idea, blush and chestnut are a beautiful combination! Thanks Sue xxxx

Hi Sue,
I love today's card but like lots of others the colour are not showing up as they really ought to be. I have the soft pink and it is a beautiful shade but I don't have the brown. I might even give it a try with the plum coloured card? Yes/ no?! All your dies work so beautifully together.
Well, craft room is now tidy! What a lot of sorting. I found stuff I hadn't seen for years! All ready for action - not today though as it's been busy so far!
Pat - hope you had a lovely birthday yesterday.
It's very cold here today but no snow so far!
Take care everyone

Hi Sue
Beautiful card as always, love the design & embossing the frame around the main cut out really makes a difference & nice to have a change in colours.
I do agree with all the other comments that each computer monitor will be showing differing gradients of colour but can imagine that your pretty card will look stunning in 'real life' as always.

I love it when you use the bows. This will be the next set I buy. The simple details in this card just make it.

Hi Sue, wish the colours would come through right as the way they come through spoils the look of the cards and I'm sure they must look lovely in real life.
Congratulations lucky ladies.

Keep safe and warm everyone.

Hi Sue, For once the colours on my laptop are almost spot on and I managed to see the card in the colours you actually used :). I lover the way the brown and blush go together so well.

Hi Sue,
Love todays gift, it is truly beautiful. Who cares what colour it is, it's gorgeous. What struck me was the French Border. The 3 segments just beneath the bow in particular, they looked as if they had been designed especially for it. Fabulous, thank you again for all your inspiration.

Many congratulations to all the winners, especially JANET. never mind singing and dancing in your head girl, do it for real!!!
SAM, good luck on Tuesday, hope they sort you out.
IVY, forget the housework it will wait. Hope you have a good nights rest.
THERESA. I really feel for you, to be in constant pain must be awful. Sending you special comforting hugs. Wish I could do more.

Love and hugs for all

Hi Sue. Today's card is beautiful !! I love it all. You have mixed and matched dies from several different sets and they all look fantastic together !! The colours are not showing up very well on my I pad but I have both of these colours of cardstock and I really love this colour combo. I really love the Dotty Bow die you have used on your card. I have this Dotty Bow Die set and I really love it. I use it a lot. Thank you for sharing this beautiful card today Sue.
