Best Wishes

 Hello there my crafty friends!  I have a card made with the latest release for you today.  I started by cutting the Tessa die out of coconut white card using just the decorative outer die.  Below that I cut the Window Striplet minus the cutting edges.  Using a piece of peach card, I lined up the Tessa die and situated the inner die from the set to cut into the peach card.  I added mounting foam and layer the two pieces up for a bit of dimension between them.  I stamped my sentiment and placed it to show through from the back.  I actually had a flower laying around that I hadn't used, but had made from the Classic Rose die and felt.  There is a video showing this technique on our Creative Expressions Youtube channel.  I added the flower with some peach and white pastel Bakers Twine as an accent.  Finishing up the card, in my usual pierced and matted manner, the final dimensions are 8" x  8 1/2" in size.

I just thought I would also let you know that I had a really nice surprise recently when a lovely gal named Becky contacted me to say that she had included my blog in an article that she had written about the five best blogs for a Homemade Christmas.  Here is a link to her article if you are interested.   http://www.iconwallstickers.co.uk/blog/Home-Made-Christmas-Blogs    I was delighted to be included in her submission and wanted to share it with you!

Julia Watts has shows today on Hochanda at 11am, 2pm and 5pm with Justrite stamps and dies at some great prices!  Don't forget to tune in!  

There are still about half a dozen unclaimed winning dies.  Please be sure to scroll down and check the list of winners that was posted yesterday.  All for now, Sue x

A beautiful card Sue, I love it and love the colours too. :) I still haven't made my mind up where to start with choosing the new dies, there's too many to choose from! Plus it's an expensive time of year, gone are the days when I could afford it all. Still, it gives me a lot to dream of. :)

Sue this is a beautiful card made with your gorgeous dies.
Love the peach and white combo.

Lorraine Freeman said...

Sue, today's colour combination reminds me of the 80's :). Beautiful card though.
Tbq, I hope the op is successful and that the recovery is super quick.
My body surely knows the worst time to play up, I need to get stuck into Christmas prep and I am just flattened by this. It heard me talking about how I hadn't suffered with it for a while, silly me.
Wishing good things to all

Myra said...

Hello Sue,
What a beautiful card! It is really gorgeous and I love your peachy rose in felt! I love making felt flowers but hadn't thought of trying the Rose! Will remedy that sometime soon.
I have been and had a look at the site of the Top Five Blogs for Christmas and I have pinned the whole thing as I'd really like to have a good look at it when I have more time as it looks most interesting. I just read the headings for each one! How lovely to be chosen but we aren't surprised at all. I do hope more people will join this blog as a result . Congratulations Sue, well deserved, but it's lovely to be recognised in this way!
Will try to watch Julia later even if it's on a repeat as I cannot record Hochanda! How I wish I could! I have today I enjoy any programmes I am able to watch.
Must go as its after school craft club today !!
Lots of love Myra xxx

Hi Sue,
First of all congrats to all the lucky winners, I had another look through the list just to make sure I wasn't amongst them after all but alas, will have to buy them all myself. (Mind you, am well on the way as far as that goes).

Good Morning Sue,
I am still on cloud nine, thank you once again and also to all who have offered their congratulations.
Today's card is stunning, I love how you have used the striplet, another one I need. Congratulations on your accolade, you deserve to be recognised for your amazing blog and all the hard work you put into it. I have had a quick look and hope it brings you many more followers.

Sending special love to Tracy and Lorraine ( sorry Lorraine I missed what has been happening to you, I have been in the UK and had a bit of a difficult time so didn't get round to reading all the comments whilst I was away)
And to TOB, it's seems such a long time since you first hurt your shoulder, glad you are finally getting your operation.
Melody love to you and Francis too.

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, I love the window striplet, classic rose (still my all-time favourite) and the peach colour you have used for this card. It all adds up to a very pretty and feminine card.

It's great that you have been included in Becky's blog, she gave you an excellent write up and hopefully it will spread the word far and wide.

Theresa TOB - hope the operation goes well and that you will soon be back to crafting.

Thinking of everyone else who is suffering; when I read some of the comments I realise how lucky I am to have such minor problems in comparison.

A very pretty card. The Window striplet doesn't look anything like a window when used in this way.
Congratulations to all the Blog Launch draw winners, I was one of the lucky ones, and can't wait to receive my Fanciful Trim dye.

Margaret xxx

Anonymous said...

WOW...another beautiful card. I immediately put the window striplet on my "list" when you used it recently. I love seeing how you used it without the outer die this time. So pretty. It sure helps me a lot to see the dies actually cut...I don't have the "artist's" eye to envision it just from looking at the dies in the package. Thank you. Jan D., Florida, USA

Jean said...

This is just spectacular!

Jan from Long Island said...

Good morning...absolutely gorgeous card today, Sue, as was yesterday's. Congratulations on being included in that article...no doubt about it, you are the best of the best!

I won't have time to read all of the comments this week as I'm away with my family. We're off to Disneyworld today. My granddaughter has an appointment with the princesses at the Magic Kingdom.

Hugs to all the Wilsonettes, especially Tracy, Melody, Molly, Laine, Yvonne, Lorraine, Wheely Bad, Rebecca, Linda and everyone I've forgotten to mention!

Have a beautiful day everyone!

Diane said...

Hi Sue
Such a pretty card today and some of your lovely new dies. I waited until the list of names came out before I handed hubby my Christmas list as there are so many lovely ones. He immediately went to look at them and agreed there were so many pretty ones to choose from - haven't I got him well trained! Congratulations to all the lucky dinners, Saba it was just the boost you needed and I could hear your excited squeals from here! How lovely to have your blog mentioned, I will check that out in a little while. Take care

Good Afternoon from chilly Cornwall, Sue,
What a pretty card! I love the little felt flower, it looks very tactile. I love the colour you chose to go with the white card today, Sue. I really do need to get my act together and get a stock of the Foundation card as the colours are just wonderful. I think that after Christmas I'm going to allow myself a monthly 'craft budget' to see if I can get my wish lists down to a more reasonable size lol.

Lovely card again Sue, what beautiful colours to compliment the dies. I had a look at Becky's Blog and there are some really lovely things on there. Wonderful inspiration for Christmas. I have looked and looked and my name is not among the prize winners names - shame. I hope all my comments are getting through to the blog as I do comment on almost every entry and I have never been successful. Just unlucky I guess. :-(

Yvonne G said...

Hi Sue
Well what can I say - this card is an absolutely outstanding work of art. That might be due to the fact that it makes use of the fabulous Window Striplet which I was lucky enough to win in your draw. I am still in shock. I have to tell you, the smile on my face would not have been bigger if George Clooney decided to pay me a visit and ravish me. That said I would not turn him down - obviously, but I can assure you that he would fail miserably to pleasure me as much as one of your dies. I do hope that explains and puts into perspective just how happy I am to be a winner x
Peach is a colour that I do not use much but whenever I see one of your cards with this colour combo it reminds me just how beautiful it is. Note to self - more peach!
I think I may have to put the Tessa die to the top of my Christmas list so that I can replicate this gorgeous card. However Santa is still unaccounted for so my hopes of receiving reward for my exceptional behaviour during 2015 are to be dashed I fear. If anyone comes across a rather plump but jolly gentleman with a large white beard wearing a red suit, would you mind pointing him in my direction x
LISBETH - Persevere hun - it's usually me scanning for my name in hope - maybe next time x
THERESA - hope your op went well - sending you a (very gentle) hug x
TRACY - how you doing? Sending you love x
MELODY AND MOLLY - lots of love x
JAN - enjoy Disneyworld - let your inner child free x
SABA - I am right there with you on cloud 9. Try not to jump up and down too much - there isn't that much room - we don't want to fall x
LORRAINE F - hang in there girl - sending you a hug x
YVONNE MAY - sorry that was me x
LORRAINE - how you doing hun? Feeling better I hope. I am so on your wavelength about finding a Johnny!!! We can all dream can't we?! Apprentice Appreciation Society has gone on hold. Whilst MIL is coming here on a Wednesday I am too knackered to be the dazzling hostess that my guests have come to expect. We are going to get together at some point before Christmas for fun, frolics and fabulous food and festive cheer. Sounds amazing doesn't it? It will probably involve a 7pm kick off, a few bottles of Schloer, some comfort food and Frozen on DVD so we can all be home and in bed by 9.30. Oh yes - we know how to party x
Off to check out Becky's blog.
Have a lovely evening everyone whatever you are up to.
Crafty hugs

Loved all your new dies but didn't have a chance to comment as had a very busy last few days. My list of your dies I need has gotten much longer! Best wishes from Katie-Louise sweetlove

Lorraine Eastwood said...

Good evening lovely Sue and her crafty crew!

Ooooh, I love the soft peach tones of this card, very Spring like...and we could all do with a nice reminder of warmer, brighter days at the moment...On the most part, I am super excited about witnessing you weave your own brand of magic with the new dies, but on the down side, I can't afford to buy any until The end of January:-( Nevermind, I'm hardly deprived, I have thirteen Tonic folders full to the brim of your past releases but call me greedy...and you'd be spot on!...I NEED to keep on trend and up to date with your newest ideas and techniques- any ideas girls on how to combat the withdrawal symptoms in a safe and sensible manner that doesn't involve further personal injury or breaking the law to fund my cravings?:-)
In case I haven't conveyed my appreciation of these new dies enough can I just say that this card is exceptional, and features my number one all time fave striplet....you lucky gal Louise...plus the Tessa die is most beautiful. I'll really need to search out that tutorial on the felt rose, it has worryingly passed me by.
Had a gander at the article you mentioned Sue, and all I can say is that you thoroughly deserve the accolade and I hope it brings more new members to our blog family#no.1 blog in the world!
Had a busy day in Stirling getting a new jacket...because I deserve it:-)....for Strictly- it was rather pricey but had 25% off so that eased the pain somewhat. I took some Art Deco cross stitch pictures that I had done for my brothers Christmas to be professionally framed too so it's little wonder I'm skint! I got a 3ft stuffed leopard for my niece that freaked Brodie out no end so we've had to hide it in a box in the shower out of his way- call himself the man of the house, ha!
Yvonne my love, I'm feeling much better thanks, the antibiotics are starting to help and I feel much more bearable to live with, my Mum no longer wants to hung draw and quarter me due to my grouchy ness which is always a bonus:-) I'm getting very excited about seeing Gleb in the flesh but I don't know if I can remember what to do with him, it's been so long since I've had the pleasure of a real mans company other than Brodie...handsome though he is he doesn't really count!...The same could be said of George Clooney if I was lucky enough to bump into him, but I'm with you, I'd much rather get a bucket of Sues dies or win one of her cards, at least I'd know what to do with them!
I'm partial to some Shloer too but I plan to get sozzled at Christmas this year instead- we bought a half price bottle of Champers at M&S today along with some Apple Pie Martini for me and Gin for my Mum. We'll probably be looking for a kebab before collapsing in a heap after a couple of glasses but God loves a trier!
TOB, hope your op went well, you've been waiting so long for it , it must be a relief to finally get it over with. Hugsxxxx
Lorraine F, chin up honey, things will improve, just hang on in there- alcohol is a good pain reliever I find :-)
Wheely, hope you can make some headway on your cards, how's the head, did the pills help this time?
Jan, I'm so jealous, let your inner child reign free girlxx
Hugs to all

I must admit that I am not really into the colour peach but today's card is fab Sue. I really love your peach felt flower to. I will have a look at this other blog to see what it is all about.
