Anything For You

 Good Sunday morning all!  I thought that poppies on today's card might be apropos for Remembrance Day(Veterans Day in the US) this week.  I started with the background and inked the Leafy Quad folder with Cloudy Blue pigment ink and letterpressed a piece of white card.   I then sprayed it with adhesive and glittered it with Diamond Sprinkles.  I wrapped a piece of red frilly edged ribbon around the bottom portion and taped the ends to the back.  I tied a double bow and added it with a glue dot to the left side of it.  A crystal sparkler and two matching stick pins were added as accents.  For the focal element, I stamped the Poppy stamp in black and coloured it with Distress markers before cutting it out with the Porto die.  I stamped it again and cut out only the flowers this time, coloured and layered them up on the original.  I stamped a sentiment and cut it out with the centre circle die from the Porto die.  I finished the card with a pierced white mat, a thin mat edged in cloudy blue ink, a thin red mat and another white mat. The finished dimensions are 7" x  8 1/4" in size.

The winners of this week's Comment game are:

Susan Richardson!!!
Karen Derbyshire!!!
Rosiejt!!!

Congratulations all!  Please email me at americansue1@gail.com to confirm your address and claim your prize.  All for now, Sue x

Thank you for this very fitting card today, Sue, it's really lovely. I'm sure you're thinking of your father, as I am mine - my Dad served in the RN throughout the 2nd WW, including being on the Eagle which was sunk by a torpedo. He had a tough time but rarely spoke about it, like many.
Well done to the comment winners.
Usual hugs to all who need them.

Linda Norris said...

Morning Sue,

What a beautiful card and very fitting for today, the stamp is lovely and I do love what you've done with the background.

Well I'm very sore and stiff this morning but I'm up and getting ready to go to the service outside St George's Hall. My hubby and the rest of his reservists friends do a march past the cenotaph, it's a beautiful service. You really must Google St George's Hall and see what a magnificent building it is and what they have done with the poppies from the Tower of London is beautiful. The history of the building is fascinating with old courts and cells below ground and so beautiful inside. Well better get ready it's not far but the parking and crowds can be a nightmare.

Hugs

Good morning Sue. A stunning card and so very appropriate for today.
My son is being kept busy by playing the Last Post at two different churches (20 miles apart!!), so meal times are having to be organised with military precision today. Fingers crossed I'll still manage to squeeze some craft time in though.x

Sue, today's card is stunning and so apt for today. Red, white and black with the touch of pale blue is a super combo. Just brilliant.
Congratulations to this week's winners, enjoy your prizes.
I hope Molly's internet is back soon, it's something we take for granted nowadays.
Melody, I hope Francis is able to be back home with you very soon.
Linda, I hope your body, crowds and parking allows you to pay your respects as you wish. I have seen the photos and the whole display is awe inspiring.
Feeling a bit better today so hopefully will have some time to craft. We have invited my Mum over for the main meal which we have in the evening. Hubby is not going fishing today so is going to cook the meal and chauffeur Mum around. He can be so lovely I wish I had more patience with him at times.
I still need to find homes for my goodies from the NEC. I wonder if I would be more organised if I had a craft room.
Wishing good things to all xxx

Morning Everyone,
Well, I actually managed to keep the dog quiet during the 2 minute silence at 11:00 even though new neighbours are moving in and she wants to growl every time they walk past the window lol. I think the clock in town is running a bit fast though as they set the gun off before the time was up. The card today is so appropriate, Sue and I love the poppies you used.
I hope the rest of the country isn't as miserable as it is here in Truro right now. I think the rain may have eased up a bit but the wind is still gusting very fiercely. It's a wonderful excuse to do almost nothing though isn't it :).

I love the poppy stamp on this card very appropriate. Personally I would make it but without the bow as I am not a fan of big bows. Probably not helped by the fact that I do not tie them very well.

Wheely Bad said...

Hi Sue

A very appropriate card, thinking of service personnel from all over the world today. Those lost or injured. The survivors who lived and who do live with what they saw and those currently serving and their families, hoping conflicts become fewer and people return home safe.

Lest we forget.

I love poppies, a bit like butterflies in that I feel the need to collect stamps and dies of them! So this will be going on the list.

Hugs to Melody, Francis & Molly x

Hugs to Tracy x

I will go back & read everyones news later.

I missed commenting yesterday as I started making a card for my friends birthday. I have to finish it today. A mix of a kit and some SW dies again. It's been grey or grey and wet all week so the lights have been on nearly all week. I must admit to feeling like a bit of a numpty sitting here in sunglasses due to the neck induced headache though. Waiting for it to shift or I'll be crafting tomorrow when I want to rest! Mr W is dropping off me at a nearby pub/resturant tomorrow evening as it's my friend's 40th on Tuesday so as she'll be with her family then, 3 of us will have a dinner and serious amounts of dessert tomorrow. If I do get to comment it will be a quick one.

Hugs to everyone, extra hugs if you need them. Wishing you all a lovely day.

Molly said...

Hello sue an everyone I love your card I think the stamping is really good an it look really pretty. Nam as got lots of stamps an inks but we don't really do much because nan says she not very good at it so she only stamps the words for cards. But I think I would like to try an colour them in after with the mica paints because nan brought 2 trays of them an they look so pretty. I have seen loads of new dies an they look really good so I am making a list for nan because I know she is going to want them but I can pick which ones I like best first. I get £5 for each job I do for nan an I get paid every 4 weeks Kat month I brought black shiny doc Martins but this month I going to buy dies with nan. Everyone your going to love them when you see them. Grandad is still in hospital an really upset because he wanted the 6 weeks to build up to take another test but now they don't know if he going to be able to take it again. But nan says he still saying he is going to do it. My nan as been staying up the hospital most of the time an dad says she got to come home an rest up. Thank you everyone oxoxox

Lorraine Eastwood said...

Good evening Sue and the fabulous Wilsonettes,

What a stunningly appropriate card for Rememberance Sunday, very fitting and utterly beautiful! I am partial to a bit of stamping and colouring and you have proved yet again just how proficient you are at these techniques Sue- the addition of some decoupage on the poppies adds an extra dimension and the pearl centres are a lovely touch. There is something hauntingly touching about poppies that make me feel quite sombre and respectful and this card reflects those sentiments perfectly. They represent the fragile beauty of nature and the fragility of life, we should never be allowed to forget the sacrifices so many have and continue to make on our behalf.
Well, what a dreadful few days in Stirling, driving wind, torrential rain and so dismal that the street lights are barely off....perfect crafting weather! Sorry for missing yesterday's post, had a fairly busy day taking my niece window shopping for her Christmas list, note to self, NEVER ask a nine year old what she would like for Christmas because a frantic four hours later I had so many absolute needs that my head was spinning! Everything from a bike, to a kitten...standard fare....to some pot plants, a jaguar( not the car!), and a cat costume!...maybe I should get one of those too! Not the sort of things you can easily source in the local shopping centre. She likes make up and wants to be a hairdresser so I thought a Girls World type dolls head- remember those!, would be just the ticket not thinking that apparently a decapitated head would freak a Child out...but vampire dolls don't !!??! I don't remember ever being so picky as a child, an apple and an orange and we were grateful:-)
Spent today recuperating and catching up on some more Cardmaking- out came the texture paste again and I slapped it on anything that didn't move quick enough...Brodie was fortunate that he was fast asleep in another room at the time let me tell you! Nine cards done and dusted but I've ran out of coconut white card which is rather unfortunate so a quick visit to Julia Watts site will be my next port of call, will I be able to resist putting other items into my basket is the big question though!
Yvonne, I hope you firework extravaganza went with a bang and that it hasn't taken too much out of you- I didn't notice anything on the BBC news channel so I presume the emergency services weren't required:-) Hope the weather was kind to you honeyxxx
Tracy, what lovely comments I so don't deserve them, I'm a miserable cow really!:-), and you may live to regret suggesting we meet up sometime, I have been known to be a bit of a handful. And I wish that I had a fraction of the strength that you have shown lately dearxxxx
Lorraine F, thanks for your kind comments too, having a craftroom only leads to having an excuse, if one was needed, to buy yet more stash, as a crafter you NEVER have enough room:-) hope hubby didn't burn the dinner, though it's lovely to have a man that is good around the house and makes himself useful:-)
Wheely Bad, hope you managed to get your card completed and that you can get some rest before the partying tomorrow night, if you can't be good be careful:-)
Huge bear hugs to all my friends that need them, especially Melody, I hope you are looking after yourself honey, and to those that just like a cuddlexxx
Sue, hope we see you back in the Uk before Christmas to launch your new range...well, a girl can but dream!

I am so glad to see the wonderful card that you have made today, it is Remembrance Day in Canada on Nov. 11. My father in-law served in WWII, he never would talk about it and I know that there was a very good reason for that, he said nothing good really came from the conflict. Contrats to all the winners.

karenlotty said...

Beautiful tribute on this remembrance day. I've said it before but I'm going to say it again. I am the very proud owner of one of the ceramic poppies that were on display at the Tower of London. It was a very breath taking and humbling display to see.

Dawn Holben said...

Absolutely gorgeous card and perfect for today but makes a beautiful card for any day too.
I really love this stamp, it is so pretty and love the background too.
And the bow finishes it of perfectly especially with the stick pins they make it that little bit more special.
