Morning Sue. WOW This card tick's all my boxe's it's stunning. The colour's are beautiful as is the foldover flower. I had some felt in my stash so made it up using this die but they turned out like cardboard so must invest in some of the creative expression's felt as your flower look's so life like and soft. This would make a beautiful wedding card, just change the colour's to match the bridesmaid's. Thank's for another great video. Congratulation's to scotty dog on winning your beautiful card. I am sure she will treasure it forever and will have pride of place where ever she put's it. Hoping you are having a great time with your mom & family and not working to hard.
Take care everyone and hoping you all have a great day.
Best Wishes.

Elizabeth Beal said...

Hi Sue & Wilsonettes

Dear Sue you have stunned me & knocked me off the edge of my seat once again & in my favourite colour...2 for the price of one...I may not have won your gorgeous Wed card giveaway but seeing this little beauty more than makes up for the sad loss. Haven’t had a chance to watch the video yet but it will be as great as all other videos i’m sure...something to look forward to when having a rest from the garden...if I was to make this card then I know it would be worthy of top praise...thank you Sue you have excelled in the extreme WOW factor once again...

SCOTTY DOG...what can I say you are sooooo lucky to win an original SW card & a beautiful one at that...I can just imagine you consistently stopping what you are doing when it arrives...& staring at it in awe...congratulations...may I advise you though, when Yvonne feels better, she may just persuade you to join BCAS being a winner you now have all the makings of a first class member...LOL...

ALISON...DEB, KAREN, Theresa,..thank you I thoroughly enjoyed the pampering, but shush don’t tell Mr B, LOL...I had the most gorgeous head
massage from a lad just starting out called Conner...& no I didn’t take advantage of him he was paid for seeing to my needs...LOL...

MAGGIE...sincerely hope that you enjoyed sharing in your daughters 30th & that she had a lovely day x x x

MOLLY...well done you for making a card yourself...another budding crafter in the making? (((((HUGS))))) to your Grandad & to you & your family...sincerely pray that he is coping well with the treatment x x x

MEG...Big (((((HUGS))))) for Monty & pray he’s back to his old self pretty soon...bet you all made for a real sight to see in bloomers, bling, hat & gloves & you probably had more fun than Mr B did in our garden...still he didn’t complain or steer me from the garden so i just went ahead & used my initiative...lol...x x x

DIANNE...Sorry I wore you, I didn’t take advantage...lol...but maybe you need some pampering too x x x

LAINE...thank you...as always I laugh well enough to split my sides when I read your comments...”activities within the bounds of the law” I don’t think that’s what Yvonne had in mind...lol...sorry boss that you didn’t win...I suppose we could try harder once we get management together & organised...lol as for Mr B’s stamina I never take him over the limit...in the words of a song...”take it TO the limit one more time”...LOL

FRANCES, KAREN....yes we are over the moon that Lauren will be coming with us on holiday (won’t leave her behind after what happened with the dog sitters...Lauren has settled down better but Hannah being younger is still quite clingy & acts up because of it, but I think we are slowly getting there)...we will be setting a slower pace to suit Lauren & as we will have the use of a dog exercise paddock near our cottage then I will take Hannah into that whilst Steve takes Lauren on a walk at her own pace...as for the rest of the days we will take it step at a time. X x x

YVONNE G...how awful dear friend to hear that you are not well...hope it is not all the laughter from the bantering & BCAS that’s worn you out...no seriously you are sorely missed but please do rest up & sincerely pray that you will be feeling better soon...Love ‘n’ (((((HUGS))))) to you x x x

LYNDA (CRAFT’S) (((((HUGS))))) to you too my dear friend & to your much loved babies x x x sincerely hope that all is well with you x x x

MARIA...thank you...after all that has happened we are so looking forward to the holiday & to switch off from home...pampering went great thank you...I may not be good at Bribery & corruption...LOL...but I seem to know how to take advantage...LOL...x x x

Well back to the garden my friends...hope to finish today...without Mr B...LOL... Take care Love ‘n’ (((((HUGS))))) to all. Beth B x x x

I Love The Fabulous Products Used On Today's Card Starting
With "The Bed Of Roses Embossing Folder" The Fabulous Dies
Used "The Lisbon The Montreal" And "The Truly Beautiful
Flower" I Just Love Your "Masterpiece" Your Card Is Very
"Rich And Elegant"

alimecca said...

Hi Sue,
Beautiful very feminine card today. Love the soft colours and the flower is lovely. What stands out for me though is the sparkly embossing folder background. I must have a go at this, but will need to watch video first. Off to watch this now with my coffee.
Well done to Scotty Dog - I know you will love your card!
Beth - don't tire yourself out too much in the garden. Pleased you enjoyed your pampering. It seems as though you've got your holiday sorted out to accommodate the " babies".
Well at least the sun is out today although the wind is back! Have as good a day as is possible everyone, love and hugs to you all, Alison xxxx

Rosemarie said...

Morning Sue, this card would make a lovely wedding, or anniversary card. I love the colours you have chosen, but they could be changed to suit the occasion.

Hope everyone has a peaceful weekend.

Love Rosemarie xx

Teresa Jarkowska said...

The tip about glittering before embossing is a very useful one and the technique is very effective, as is the peach and white combination. I have tried the flower method using the die and felt but it didn't come out anywhere near as good as yours, I guess practice makes perfect!

Another gorgeous card all told.

Pearl said...

Thank you for the card and super video today Sue. The card is fab and the flower just sets it off.

Craftihappiness and lots of love to everyone.

Pearl said...

....meant to ask if the glitter will damage the embossing folder?

Lorraine Eastwood said...

Good Afternoon Sue and lovely Wilsonettes,

I am gravely disappointed not to have been chosen as this weeks winner, back to the drawing board I guess. But where do I go from here, short of breaking the law? :-) congrats to Scotty Dog though, any hints or tips would be greatfully received!
Well, who wouldn't be delighted to receive today's stunning creation-having watched the video I am very impressed at the number of hints and tips given, particularly the Pom Pom flower head. I was originally put off this die but seeing how straightforward the process is I will definitely be purchasing it soon. I love the soft peach tone and the intricacy of the design, the overall package is simply beautiful.
Had a manic day today thus far, housework, bath, hair and walkies with Brodie and Darcey before I had a bit of me time and a Caci facial...bliss, and recommended to anyone where 40 is a distant memory! If only I could afford it all over my body I might have a bum like J-lo and the figure of a supermodel...at 5ft 1 I am looking for a miracle, but we can but dream! Thank God your eyesight deteriorates at the same rate as your body so the reality remains blurred.
Yvonne, so sorry your sick. I feel really guilty after berating you for sleeping in-I hope you feel better soon cos your wit is sadly missed by us all. Perhaps I should be considered as interim CEO of BCAS in your absence-I know that my tactics are sadly lacking of late but I am sure that with the help of Deb C I could procure enough memorabilia to satisfy all of our members! But seriously, look after yourself dear, sending healing hugs your way:-)
Beth, glad to hear you enjoyed your little pamper session, though I am a trifle concerned as to what services you procured for a fee....I am giving you the benefit of the doubt and assuming that a head massage was the order of the day!
Enjoy your spot of gardening, I hope the weather stays fine-we have had a bit of everything here in Stirling today apart from snow but the day hasn't ended yet!
Molly, so glad your Grandad is in good spirits , maybe you could make him a get well soon card with your Gran, I'm sure he would be thrilled.
Have a lovely weekend everyone and that you are enjoying your trip to the States Sue.

Love and crafty hugs,

Laine1972xxxxxx

Hi Sue and everyone.
Love the card and its colour. Do not have
the flower die but it is so cute in felt and as usual
thank you for making a tutorial, how to. No presenters
interrupting while making the card, perfect.

Congrats to Scotty dog, you got a lovely card there
to cherish.
Molly- nice to hear your granddad is keeping his
spirit up and he might not loose his long hair after all.
I feel for anyone who are not well at the moment (Yvonne wish
you better ) sitting here myself with a cacti in my throat
and going hot and cold,Feeling some better after reading some
of the comments, Beth-take it easy, hugs to four paws.
ToB and Wheelybad I hope you are doing ok

To all wilsonettes and my friends, enjoy the week-end

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Hi Sue. Have I had problems trying to post a comment today or what ? So Im hoping this time it will work !
I gave your lattice heart ef a sparkle yesterday but put it through before I attacked it with sparkle as I have used a thinner adhesive sheet (not keen) so back to my usual brand, and it looked lovely as my backing mat, and low and behold it takes centre stage on your card today. Talking of taking centre stage Sue, I could hear the bird's singing and chirping in the background of your video earlier lol see, its NOT just us that sing your praises : )
Congrats to Scotty dog, bet you are chasing your tail with excitement - enjoy your gift from Sue.
Whatever your plan's for the day Sue, hope you have a good one.
Sending hugs.

Helloooooo Sue and the Wilsonettes! Oh wow Sue, what a gorgeous gorgeous masterpiece! Great video and thank you for the tips on glittering before embossing. Beautiful flower too, it is stunning x Love the peach and white combination as well. "Thank you Sue" for giving us so much help and inspiration, we all appreciate it xx Sending love and hugs to you, your mom and your family, hoping you're all having a wonderful time and a well earned rest! xx Congratulations Scottie Dog! Wow, you lucky lady! Do the whoop whoop dance! It will look even more gorgeous in real life, trust me xx Sending love and hugs to you Yvonne, get well soon xx sending love and hugs to you all too Mollie. it is true, sad to say, that it is best to be up front about your granddads hair. I kept telling my mum and dad that I would lose my hair and someone else was telling her I wouldn't! I just told her don't listen to anyone else, what I am told, I tell you. after that it was never an issue. My dad, bless him, bought me a hat to keep my head warm. I'll never part with that one! xx Thinking of all our Wilsonettes who need love and a hug. I also send them to all our missing Wilsonettes too xx Take care everyone! xx Love Karen xx

OH Sue that card is so pretty, I just love it and love the colour too.
I have the flower die and have so much fun using it even though I get a little messier than you seem to lol
I am definitely going to try and glitter my card before embossing it.

Hi Sue
What an absolutely gorgeous card, and a brilliant video to boot. What amazes me Sue is the speed with which you create such a fabulous piece of work. Today's video was about 15 minutes long, and in that time you created a masterpiece. I just do not know how you do it.
I am in awe.
Congratulations to Scotty Dog, enjoy your prize.
Love to all
Saba

Thanks for the video showing us how you did this delightful card. I learned something from you today - to glitter the cardstock before embossing the same cardstock. I will try this technique. The look is lovely! Wishing all a great weekend.

Stunning card. Pretty peach colour. Wish I could get just one of my felt flowers to look as good as your's, Sue. I'm going to need a whole evening to catch up on the videos when I get back home.
Congratulations to Scotty Dog.
Take care everyone.
