Fabulous card, Sue, almost looks like damask material in the background - don't know how you keep so steady when placing the diecuts on the adhesive sheet. See disaster looming for me and Steph! Absolutely love it.
Well done to all the lucky winners, hope you don't mind me saying - especially to Melody who can do with a happy boost and guess Molly will be thrilled too!! Do hope Francis is feeling better.

Love2papercraft said...

Oh my gosh! It's so beautiful! Can't wait to watch the video.
I had a fun evening making a friend's bday card following along with one of your videos (I hope it's ok if I copy :) I dont have all the dies that were used (it was a recent demo using some of the Noble dies), but I worked it out & I hope she'll be pleased. But I have to laugh because it certainly takes me longer than it takes you! The dies make the ooh and ahhh, but the prep work takes the most time. Especially when the prep work involves digging through my stash trying to find stuff (staying organized is not my strong suit)! It doesn't matter though because I have so much fun in the process (the making, not the digging).

Elizabeth Beal said...

Hi Sue & Lovely Wilsonettes

What a magnificent card today Sue...have watched your video & brilliant!!! The technique you have used for the Configuration Die (which I have) is an absolute dream & to have used only one Die for the whole of the card is pure brilliancy...thank you for sharing with us...

Sue you truly are a lovely lady who unpretentiously gives so much to us all & even when we praise you to the heavens you remain modest & humble throughout, your inspiration is our guiding light, shining brighter always when we need you most.x x

DIANE G...chuckle away...LOL...once I got over the shock of the boot disaster, the replacement cost & coming back to Sues new launch then I pretty much had a good chuckle myself x x x

YVONNE G...great to see you back & hope that you are feeling much better...anyone who doesn’t have a mishap on their holiday must have the luck of the Irish (as they say)...we took the girls with us to Devon last year & it rained almost all the 10 days we were there...even poured with rain on our wedding day...some said it was supposed to be lucky but not too sure about that...LOL...you think you are food orientated...on the day we travelled back we wanted to stop off for this gorgeous breakfast roll at Gorse Lane, which we had on the way down, but he was closed...I had had no brekky & nothing in car to eat...or was there? Let girls stretch their legs & went on with our journey...by now my stomach was objecting profusely from being so hungry...travelling on I suddenly started to imagine that a black car was juicy Black pudding, red car was fresh ripe strawberries, yellow car was a bowlful custard...well you get the gist...lol...I’m also thinking ‘now who’s lost the plot’ then I saw a blue & beige camper van & to me that shouted out Blueberry jam on toast...please tell me that someone, just one other has gone through this & that I’m not the only lunatic on this lovely blog...LOL... x x x

LYNDA B...I thought of dear little Annie often whilst we were away my dear friend so I’m absolutely thrilled for you that Annie is doing so well...love to you & big kiss & Cuddles to your furry babies & to all Wilsonette furry/feathered babies. X x x

MOLLY...although I have not been able to comment, your Grandad, yourself & your family have been in my thoughts & prayers every day...sincerely hope that things are improving & that the treatment is having a positive effect...you are one brave & admirable young lady..Take care & love ‘n’ (((((hugs))))) to you all x x x

PAT L...belated (((((HUGS))))) to your little Sarah for her Birthday...sincerely pray that the cpap machine & the operation will your little granddaughter x x x

LORRAINE & THERESA W...I understand your dilemma on the dies to purchase...paying for boots when Sue’s die was being launched added insult to injury...do what I did once...I put the names & prices of each of the useful & practical dies top of my list on paper & into a pot...Steve ruffled them & chose them one by one until my set cost was reached...have done that each time now & the unlucky ones not chosen were put back into the pot for next time...lol...hope this helps in your dilemma x x x

Well my friends I must go now, love ‘n’ (((((Hugs))))) to you Sue & to all lovely Wilsonettes...Beth B x x x

Morning Sue
This is so beautiful. I love the configuration dies. I only have one of the configuration dies (so far) but they are on my long want/need list. As always the fabulous versatility of your dies is just astounding and the colours of this card are soft and delicate. Video and cuppa later.

Lorraine - it's difficult not to talk about food. I know it seems like I've got a one track mind - actually no it doesn't seem like it - I have got a one track mind! My last job was food orientated, so now I am unable to work I suppose I compensate by thinking about food all the time. I love to give descriptions of meals that make them sound terribly exciting. It drives the boys mad when I get the daily text from them asking what's for dinner. I like to give a full description. I thought it may put them off texting but that plan didn't work. I can make pie and chips sound like a Cordon Bleu delight - such fun x

Molly - I am so sorry to hear that your Granddad is not so good. Sending you all lots of love x

I have a date with the ironing board today. Oh joy!

Have a lovely day everyone

What a beautiful gift and so simple to do.
This Configuration Die was one I bought immediately you launched it and yes I know I say frequently how easy they are to use but this is definitely one that just falls into place for any occasion. In fact I made a bday card yesterday using this die.
Congratulations to all the very lucky winners in your new die launch. I hope that they will stay and support you as you deserve.

We have a beautiful day here; the sun is shining and at the moment it's not too hot.

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

Hi Sue

Lovely configurations! One of my top favourite die ranges as there's so much that can be done with them. This card is stunning, so classy with the lines of dies. On a note, I just caught up with yesterdays cards, comments and winners so I'd like to take the opportunity to say thank you to Sue for the beautiful cards this weekend and to Creative Expressions for letting Sue give away her dies for free. Last but not least, congratulations to the winners, enjoy your prizes and get an early start on thoe Christmas cards!

Molly, I'm sorry Grandad was so ill after his Chemo. Hopefully his body will get a bit more used to it again and he'll not feel so ill after the next round. I'll be thinking of you all and sending Grandad lots of feel better hugs... but you have to give them to him for me, is that ok? There's some hugs for you and Nanna in there too xxxxxx

Pat, I'm so glad Sarah had a lovely birthday, hopefully this next op will do the trick for her and as a result improve her breathing when sleeping and make her more comfortable with less pain. I'll be thinking of her and of you and her family. Sending Sarah lots of hugs to see her through until she's home again.

Beth, I'm glad you had a nice holiday xxx

Lynda, thank you for the hugs, sending hugs back to you and Billy sends lots of wags and some of his sloppy kisses!

Ended up at the Doctors yesterday (why I didn't comment). My neck was causing issues with my left arm which until yesterday had no real issues- my stretching and lifting arm. I did freak out a bit as it is 'new' and also have another UTI -hopefully that's what it is anyway so I got some anti biotics and did a test. I will find out soon. On my neck she told me to phone the specialist as I am expecting to hear from him again anyway and tell him to ask what I/ my GP should do. After doses of the strong meds I fell asleep after tea, woke up at 12:30 am with Billy nudging me as he needed to go outside! Asleep again by 2am with a very happy dog as Mr W had made up a bed on the sofa for me and Billy got to sleep on my quilt. He's not so happy this morning as it's raining and he doesn't do rain. Due to the rain Mr W isn't up to much so he's helping to organise some new storage in the craft half a room doing the physical under my direction so that will take my mind off things.

Hope you have a wonderful day. I'm off now to get Billy his dinner. Hugs to you all with loads extra to those who need them.

Hi Sue
Stunning card, I have this die but never thought to use it for a background so will remedy that and craft along with you. The snowflake mini striplet and Christmas scene arrived in the post yesterday so really must make a start on those C cards
Thanks to everyone who sent Sarah birthday wishes, really appreciate it.

Molly said...

Hello sue an everyone I think the card is soooo pretty it looks like a lovely wedding card. Thank you everyone who as been sending my granddad kind wishes again I am going to write them down later when I get home from the town he is still feeling really bad an being sick a lot. I think it's silly that if the chemo is making you sick why do you keep taking it because he was not sick before he started taking it. But nan says it was same for her when she was having her chemo an it's same for everyone who as it an she was having it when I was not even born so she said we just have to wait an hope that it will help nan still as cancer but not the same as granddads because hers could only be made smaller an every few years she as another chemo called radio to make it small again and granddads is to make it small enough so the doctors can remove his stomach with the growth so that's why he as to be sick before he can be better. Thank you everyone Molly oxoxox

Lorraine Eastwood said...

Good afternoon lovely Sue and the fab Wilsonettes,

What a sophisticated, elegant creation that would be just perfect as a wedding card. I really like the sparkled background and peonies it add some texture and depth to the all white ensemble. I don't currently own any configuration dies so I won't be able to recreate this little gem-they will be a priority just as soon as I have purchased all of the Christmas die range though!
I haven't had time to watch your demo yet, I've been running around like a headless chicken having had a bath, washed my hair, cleaned the bathroom, ironed my bedding and PJs and tablecloth AND taken Brodie and Darcey for a walk....phew! So now I can relax and end enjoy the video with feeling guilty about missing chores:-) I don't know about you Yvonne, but I detest ironing with a passion but I was raised to iron everything from socks to underpants to tea towels to the inside of pillowcases so it is ingrained in my psyche now.
Beth, Thankyou for your advice, it makes a lot of sense and is a quicker approach than the one I adopted yesterday when I bought some Christmas dies finally. I managed to narrow it down to nine but I still have a long way too go-at least I can get started on some cards now whilst I save some more pennies for the rest of the collection. I am uber excited about their delivery though, I can barely contain myself...as per usual!
Molly, I know it must be hard to watch your grandad getting sicker, but it means that he is responding to the treatment-it needs to be strong to kill the cancer cells and help him to get his operation. Try to be strong for him because he needs a lot of love and positivity at the moment to help him fight like your Grandma has. Big congrats Melody on your win, if anybody deserved a bit of good fortune at the moment it's you and Molly, you are both so brave and a credit to your familyxxxx
WheelyBad, so sorry to hear that you are suffering at the moment too, I hope that the specialist will have a workable solution for you, but in the meantime be kind to yourself and enjoy the good days when they comexxxx
Well, off to watch Sues video and check the delivery status of my dies-hope they arrive tomorrow.....

Love and crafty hugs,

Afternoon Sue and everyone,
Beautiful card ! Have not got any of those
dies but did something similar with another
one yesterday and are quite pleased with it.

Huge congratulations to all the winners.

Molly be happy to play with your new die Melody :-)
Sorry to hear Molly your granddad is being so ill with
the chemo, really hope it stops soon. Sending hugs to you
all, take care!
Yvonne- I must say your boys done good there with their
shopping. I loved to have a den for doing cards, my room
is the kitchen work bench, can be a bit tricky sometimes.
Wheelybad- sending you gentle hugs and to Billy too.
Beth -your holiday sounded like they usually are in England.
Never know how the weather turns out. Glad you did the best of it.
Thinking of little Sarah, hope it goes well.
The hedgehog in my throat has hopefully moved on. Missed Monday
totally , slept all day. Summmer cold, what summer ?

Love and hugs to all Wilsonette's and good friends

Susi in Cyprus said...

What a beautiful card, so elegant! And your dies are so versatile. Thank heavens for your wonderful videos to help us along the way. I'm learning o much from them.

Molly, I'm new to the blog but have been reading your posts about your grandad. I've just finished chemo and the doctor gave me anti sickness tablets so that the chemo didn't make me sick. Make sure your grandad tells the doctor how sick he's been and maybe there is something hey can do to help him. Big hugs!

Dear Sue
What a stunningly beautiful card!
I love the white on white colour palette it's so very elegant and chic.
I think the recipient would be bowled over to get such a gorgeous card.
I love all the textures and detail of the dies and embossing.
I've not had a chance yet to watch the video but will get to it soon as I can't wait to see how you made it. Also I can't always picture in my head how you've made a card even with your very detailed explanations.
I hope you are well.
Love Katie-Louise sweetlove
