Vertically Challenged




Hello my crafty friends!  Don't forget you can use your Gemini dies in a vertical orientation for a completely different look.  Enjoy the video!
On another note, I know that we have reached our target for the next blog candy drawing, but I am a bit under the weather at the moment so I will get the drawing done and posted when I am feeling a bit better, hopefully within the week.

Izzy said...

Hello Sue,

Just love the mirror-imaging of the Orions and you would think that four of them on one card would be too much but no, it works beautifully...altough I must admit that this is one my favourite Geminis so maybe I'm a little biased!...lol

Hope you're soon feeling bright-eyed and bushy-tailed...

Morning Sue. Im really hoping that you are taking the opportunity to rest and just kick back with a note pad at hand incase that over active mind sparks up some idea's ! Im sure your allowed a day or two or more to rest when you dont feel well !!! So do it ! Health is SO important. What did we say a few days ago - prizes shmizes, its you and your inspiration that matters MOST to us, NOT freebies !
Hope you start to feel better soon (put the kettle on Mr Sue) lol.
Todays card is a gem. A wonderful package of suprises and you look SO very beautiful in your video, colour co-ordinated with your card. We can always count on our Sue to show us how to get the most from our fantastic dies - thank you. Take the duvet day Sue, and follow me for a long hot latte in Sandra's cafe lol all women together having a laugh and putting the craft world to rights lol im sure we can find a reserved table with the best china and table cloth lol... Oh and a shiney soap box if you need a rant lol : )

Sending get well hugs to you Sue. And thinking of our friends that are unwell or down.
Thinking of you TOB, Sheila and Alison xx

Nina Spear said...

Hi Sue
That is a lovely card and you have given me the inspiration I needed to make a card for my sister this weekend.

Just a quick question, I notice that the sponges you use with distressed inks have a chamfered edge. Do you make that with a knife or scissors (or, indeed, something entirely different! lol).

Hi Sue
from a very cold Chester - Spring is not quite with us yet.
So very sorry to hear that you are not feeling very well, rest up and don't insist on doing stuff when your body tells you otherwise. My very good wishes are winging their way to you.
You've made a beautiful card once again, those Gemini dies are so very versatile - you were very clever with the designs.
Love the colours, too.
Hugs, Rose

Sandra said...

Good Morning Sue & Friends,
Oh Sue I am so sorry to hear you are not feeling too good,
I hope it's nothing too serious, mind you it could be your body telling you to slow down, maybe it enjoyed the slower pace of the cruise ship life and it doesn't want to click straight back into SW 'Wonder Woman' mode where you work continuously! So just relax and recuperate!
Today's card is lovely Sue, I can't believe the popularity of the Gemini Dies, you can't buy Lyra anywhere at the moment!
We all pop in to see you and your daily dose of inspiration Sue, we don't come fir what we can win, yes I would love to have a win, some of those stamp sets in this bundle of candy I have wanted for a long time, but it's not what I think about when I call in everyday, I didn't even notice we had reached the target! So take your time, it can wait.
Sending you healing hugs xxxxx
Sam and Theresa, I am sending healing hugs your way too, missing you both greatly! Xxxx
Steph, good to see you out and about again, rather than being 'head down in you den'
Thanks for your lovely words about my blog, you are very kind, hugs to you my lovely xxx
Sheila, I hope you are coping as well as can be expected and Nikki too, hugs to you both xxx
Lots of love and hugs to each and every one of you lovely visitors to Sue's blog,

Morning Sue, I hope you are feeling well again very soon. I have been having eye problems recently, it isn't good when you are off colour.

Hi Sue,
So sorry you are not feeling so well. Have a rest for a few days, it will be worth in in the long run! Hope you feel a little better tomorrow.
Todays card and video are great. Thank you once again for making me think outside the die! Lol.
As for the draw - just forget about it - you will have enough to do with Ally Pally and TV Shows! All that preparation. Blog Candy can easily go on the back burner!
Take care, my friend,
Love Myra xxxx

Norah McPhee said...

Good afternoon Sue and the Wilsonettes,
Like how this card has been down Sue as it shows up its bonnie design so well against the white and with the white border going the other way it just makes it look that bit different. I am so glad that you had such a wonderful time on your cruise and away from everything so that you could have a complete break, so we will now allow you to work at your usual hammer and tongs pace since you were so good and did rest on your holidays for once. The northern lights are such a spectacle to see that i bet it fair took your breath away with all its bonny colours. It is a sight that stays with you long after you have come back home and i hope you feel the benefits of your trip for a long while to come. When are you coming back to see us in Scotland again?I hope it's soon, after you have lost that additional 8 pounds that you found on your last break away though as we wouldn't want you eating some of our naughty goodies when you have been doing so well and you are a bit on the tiny side so perhaps some might do a wee bit good. I hope that you are feeling more like yourself soon flower.
I have a whole host of hugs of all shapes, sizes and for all occasions just waiting to be picked up and wrapped around, please take one all my angels both here and not on the blog the now and i am sending up wee prayers for a wee of you that could really do with them.
take care all my dear friends

Thanks again for the video tuts Sue. Helps a lot. Once again I don't have all the dies you use here like the Gemini die, but always compensate by using your other dies.

Hi Sue,
First of all I'm sorry to hear you are feeling a bit under the weather and I hope you are better soon. How exciting to know that we have another big draw coming up, I'm sure we're all keeping our fingers crossed to be in the lucky three winners:).
Now on to the card...I love how different the dies look just by turning them round and using them in a different direction. The colours are really great as well. Another winner. As always, thanks so much for sharing with us. x
