Ebony and Ivory

Hello bloggers!  Today's video card uses the Gemini die called Cygnus and the Caribbean die called St. Kitts.  They look lovely together in one of my favourite colour combos of milk and black, don't they?

Don't forget to tune in tonight to Ideal World at 9pm for my launch of the POTD.  The shows will continue all through Wednesday between Ideal World and C & C for the various hours so check the schedule.    I hope you can tune in!
Buy from Joanna Sheen

 The finished dimensions are 7 1/2" x  8 1/2" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Ecco of Sheffield said...

Morning Sue
'Ebony and Ivory go together in perfect harmony' and that's just what you have achieved.

The little bit of bling down the edges is just the finishing touch and makes today's gift just sparkle. I defy anyone not to want to receive such a gift as this at any time and not just for a special occasion. Today's gift has gone into my 'must do' file and will stay there forever.

I'm looking forward to your POTD and just hope that you don't sell out before I get to see everything.

It's a sorting wardrobes day today. Oh Goody hmmmmmmmmmm.

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

Hi Sue, beautiful card love the dies and the bling down the sides of the card and on the flower. Lol lynne m x x

Eldest daughter has the task of looking after poochies today as stuck in bed with sickness and a heavy cold. Hoping to watch your shows though. Poochies brought lots of cut grass into the house yesterday it seemed as soon as I had used the hoover the little b's went out and got some more. I know the saying " bringing the outdoors in" but my two took it to extremes. At least the bulbs were left alone!!!.

Lol and hugs to all my crafty buddies. To those pain or need extra hugs from the divas x x x x

Lynne Mills said...

Angela they certainly are dastardly doggie divas. I don't know if you remember a kiddies cartoon called wacky races. My two remind me of mutley the dog side kick of dick dastardly cuz of the way he used to mutter under his breathe and chuckle my two do that when I tell them off!!! Lol lynne m x x

Morning Sue. WOW this card is right up my street it's stunning. Loving the black and milk colours together, with just the hint of bling under your top mat. Another frilly, lacey effect on the card and the flower just finishes it off. Hubby got to work so i can get my housework done and some little jobs to finish then it show time for me. I will be sitting wait for the big reveal at 9pm with a cup of coffee to see what you have to tempt us crafters with lol. Good luck to you and john with all your shows.
It's looking like another beautiful day. Take care everyone.
Best Wishes.

Marg - a very happy birthday to you and how lovely to have the flags out specially for you! I'm sure the Queen won't mind you sharing them with you!
Love and hugs to all - have as good a day as possible. Love Alison xxx

Hi Sue, a beautiful card. Enjoyed watching the video.

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Morning dear Sue. Hope the filming is going to plan for you.
What a beautiful card you have given us, and there are exta sound effects too with the video lol if you listen real careful you can hear a dog barking way off in the distance somewhere. I did think it was a squeeky handle, but nope a dog (wonder if its Lynns little diva's) lol.
Have a lovely birthday Marg. Am SO looking forward to watching your show's Sue, im laid up on the sofa with a badly twisted ankle after managing to go out yesterday with Mr L and dog, at last its warm enough to go out although jacket and gloves still required ! But asI managed to get gracefully over a small stye my ankle twisted ! All was fine until 8pm when the pain hit like crazy, so here I am with an ice pack wrapped round my ankle! Happy days !
Hope everyone manages to enjoy the British sun today (it doesn't last long) !!!
Hugs to you Sue (listen out for the crafty pooch) lol.

I hope all goes well for tonight. I'm sure it will - it always has in the past and your dies are so different to all the others around! I'm not at all biased either! Lol!
I've been a wee bit naughty - had a look ahead and ordered a CE card bundle because I reckon that will sell out . The one with pink and blues in it!
Take care Sue, everything being recorded and will watch POTD Live! I'm making an exception because it's you!
Lots of love to everyone,

Really striking card in black and white. Would look good in other colours too. I'll catch up with the video later as I've just watched my recordings of tonight's shows.
Take care everyone.

Hi Sue
Not sure you will see this post but I only just watched this video because I was away when you posted it. I love the ebony ice it holds such dear memories for me, I bought it in Haverfordwest when I went to see you demo. The video was, as usual, easy to follow and the card was so pretty thanks for sharing

Hi Sue
Wow, another stunning card & I love monochrome colours as they look so elegant & sophisticated.

Love the combination of the borders,central focal element & the flower which make for a very
gorgeous card.
