Orphan Cards

Happy New Year's Eve!  As always, today is the day that I post my the cards that I made during the year that just didn't quite sing to me when they were completed.  They didn't get their day on the blog  because I just wasn't quite thrilled with the way that they turned out if I'm honest (we are our own worst critics though, aren't we!).  The good news is that there were a few less this year than in years past.  I offer these "orphan" cards up to anyone that feels like they could give them a good home.  So if you would like to have a chance to be a foster parent to these cards, leave me a comment and I will draw a winner and post the name on Monday Jan 4th.  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue
A stunning selection of 'orphan' cards, I have a box full that I'm not sure about I go through them and de construct and try and make something I am happy with
Happy crafting

Good morning Sue,
All the orphan cards are lovely especially the first one with the basket weave, you are so right we are our own worse critics. Looking forward to seeing all your beautiful creations in the coming year. Hope everyone has a Happy New Year & plenty of time to craft. Yvonne xx

hollyberry said...

All beautiful ,like the last one especially. Who wouldn't want to give these cards a home!
Thank you Sue for all your hard work that you put into this amazing blog and for everything that you share with us,you really are so generous.

CraftySuetoo said...

Good morning Sue and everyone. Beautiful orphans and there will be many offers of good homes for them (mine included). As you say we are all our own worst critics, maybe our resolution should be to be nicer to ourselves!
Tracy, well done on staying positive through everything, you are an inspiration. Melody, Molly and family - thinking of you.
I would like to wish Sue and everyone a wonderful New Year, full of good health and happiness (and lots of Sue's dies). Sue XXX

Clare W said...

GM Sue. Love these orphans! I am wondering how many cards you made in 2015? Do you keep a tally? Must be hundreds I reckon. HNY Eve to you and all your Wilsonettes.

anne mather said...

Hi Sue
Thank you for all your inspiration for 2015 and as they say " onwards and upwards".
We all need a lift to start the day and your cards are just the ticket. You have inspired me to create some wonderful cards this year and I look forward to next year for the same......
I had some wonderful comments on my Christmas cards this year and I even sent out my orphans!
So don't be so hard on the ones above - something will always appeal to someone.
Back to work soon and long days so you, John and Sue keep me going - I look forward to checking in every day - so Thank you all.
Love to everyone on the blog and a Wonderful New Year to you all and everyone at Creative Expressions too.

I love the butterfly and the thank you cards but they are all lovely. I would be over the moon to give these orphened cards a home. I would put them all in frames and hang them in my craft room so i could look at them every day and hope to achive your standard of card making one day lol. Thank you for all your hard work designing your dies, giving us crafters all of your insperation with your videos and keeping your blog going. I cant wait to see what you have in store for us in 2016. Wishing you and your family a Happy and Healthy New Year.

So pleased you haven't so many orphans this year, Sue! The first is like diving into a new box of chocolates, then on we go - like them all.
Thank you so much for another year of total inspiration, a lot of us would be lost without it.
Take care everyone celebrating tonight, and to those not able to for whatever reason -
wishing you a healthier and happier 2016. Thinking of missing friends too.

crossstitchmarg said...

Morning Sue,
I agree we are our own worst critic. These cards are lovely I especially like the first one.
I would like to wish you a very Happy New Year., this year you have inspired me so much in my craft work.
I have spent a fortune on dies & stamps. I have always held back from buying dies until this year. But your die sets have wowed me so much .i have gone from a handful of dies to 8 books full (inspired by John's storage books for his dies I made my own 8 X 8 inch books to store mine) I now have to make more books as I have run out of space lol. I also made books with pockets to store the stamp sets,
I cannot wait to see what you and John Lockwood have for us in the next year.
Thank you so much

Rose in Chester said...

Hi Sue,
All I can say is "what is one woman's rejects is a desirable card to many others". They certainly deserve their day out as they are lovely and will have no shortage of "foster parents".
To you Sue, many thanks for the inspiration you've given us in all of 2016 with such consistency, and looking forward to seeing you very soon on our tellies.
To you and the Wilsonettes a HAPPY AND HEALTHY 2016.
Hugs, Rose

What an array of orphans! xxx

Jayem said...

Happy New Year Sue.

You do have an interesting selection of 'orphans'. I totally agree with you that we are our own worst critics, nonetheless it seems that the cards that don't quite do it for me are usually a hit with a couple of friends. Go figure!

I would love to be in the running for a Sue Wilson original! Thanks!

Looking forward to another year of creative inspirations.

Warmest regards

Jan from NSW (Aus)

Happy New Years Eve Sue and friends,
Thank you my dear sweet friend for another year of amazing inspiration!
I would also like to thank you for bringing us some incredible die designs this year, giving us all the tools and ability to design and create beautiful cards just like yours!
I may not have gotten on to leave you a message everyday but I have looked in and admired your cards everyday without fail, I fully intend to be more involved in your blog in 2016, I miss being part of the family!
Thank you once again Sue for getting me through another year of crafting, this year has seen my blog blossom, we even managed a retreat where we all got to meet and craft together for a whole weekend, we are planning another for this year too, none of this would have been possible without you, I will be eternally grateful!
I would like to wish you and Colin And your family the very Prosperous 2016, filled with good health,wealth and lots of happiness!
I can't wait to see what you have in store for us this year!
Lots of love and hugs to all,
Sandra xxxxxx

Izzy said...

Hello Sue,

I can't think why these cards ended up as orphans, they're all totally "blogworthy" each and every one of thank you for the chance to win them...and thanks also for your inspirational cards each day

...and thank you too for giving me the opportunity to share my Gemini-inspired bags with all the other Wilsonettes, it was a real thrill to be able to give something back for all your hard work designing your fabulous dies and then showing us lots of inspiring ways in which to use them...

Here's to 2016!


cr@fty said...

Good morning Sue
Your right we are our own worst critic, I would willingly give the orphans a home. Thank you for all the inspiration you give us continually every year and for bringing us AMAZING dies, I would like to take this opportunity to wish you and all Wilsonettes a Very Happy New Year!

They look good to me but I know what you mean, I always have some I don't blog as not so happy with them. Thanks for your daily blog posts. Happy New Year. PS please don't enter me into the draw to receive these cards, lovely as they are, I don't have room to display them as they deserve x

Good morning Sue such a charming set of cards all worthy of being incorporated in your blog in my humble opinion but we are our own most critics as you say. A happy new year to you and all the family love from Jackie xx

I think the cards are just beautiful, and nr. 1 and 3 are my favourites!
Wish you a Happy New Year!

Would love to give these beautiful cards a home Sue, Happy New Year

Nannieflash said...

Morning Sue, Im not sure why you feel these should be orphans as I think except perhaps for a couple they are all quite gorgeous and I would love to give them a home so do please put me in your draw.
I want to wish you a Very Happy New Year, and may it be as prosperous (more cards please) as this year. hugs Shirleyxxxxx

Suemac said...

A stunning selection of cards.

We all have cards that we are not completely happy with, Sue, but yours are still special.

Happy New Year to you.

Chris Curry said...

Orphans? Really? All gorgeous in their own way. I think my favourite may be the butterfly one, or maybe the gorgeous lilacy one. No, everyone is lovely. Happy New Year to you Sue, your family, your team, and all who follow you and your blog. Looking forward to tomorrow night!s show. Thank you for all your inspiration. Xx

dmj from kettering said...

I do like these "orphans" Sue, the lilac one, the first or is it the butterfly one that I like the best???? No, I like them all!!

Jady said...

Lovely cards and so deserve to be published. I would love to win the 'you are on my mind'. I find it quite difficult making cards for men and I would love to send this to my cousin who has just been taken into hospital with mental problems. Happy New Year to you xx

Rosemarie said...

Morning Sue, if my cards looked half as good as your orphans I would be very happy. I would be honoured to give them a home. I join with everyone else Sue to thank you for all that you do for us and all your hard work. I wish you and all your family a healthy, peaceful New Year. To all the people who comment every day I also wish a Happy Healthy ans Peaceful New Year.

Love Rosemarie x x

Wendy L said...

I think they are all very good, love the weaved one, xxx

Tressa said...

It is interesting how we may dismiss cards we have made as not being up to scratch, yet, if we send them, the recipients are inevitably delighted and appreciate the effort made. I can be certain that that will apply to any winners of these orphans.

My favourites? Those using the weaving dies, because experience (a frustrating one to be sure) showed me the effort needed to end up with a neat end product. That, plus the fact that I do love the effects.

I hope you and all the blog followers have an enjoyable end to the old year whether you celebrate in style or, like me go to bed early having imbibed a suitably large Orkney malt whisky.


June Smith said...

Morning Sue and all wilsonettes, everyone of these cards are a gem, would make a lively addition to my display shelf of fantastic cards. Good luck everyone.

Sue I would like to thank you so much for everything you do, your continued wonderful creations, expert advice, brilliant videos and friendship, your truly amazing xxxx

Stay safe, healthy and a happy new year to you, your family and all our blog friends, hugs June Smuth xxxxx

lydia jordan said...

Morning Sue,
Orphan cards, I don't think so, they are lovely especially the lilac and butterfly ones.
Thank you Sue for the help and inspiration you give, from your daily blog to the great videos. My card making has improved no end and I can always get ideas from you when my mojo goes walkies.
Have a wonderful New Year and I look forward to all that's new in 2016.

BridgetCG said...

Morning Sue, thank you for sharing the images of your "Orphan" cards, I love them all, so will be thrilled to become their foster mother. Good Luck everyone in the draw. Happy New Year to you Sue, your family and all your blog followers. Thank you for all the lovely inspiration throughout 2015, and long may it continue. Stay safe everyone and have a good evening if you are celebrating. For those affected by the flooding, you are in my thoughts and prayers, may the coming of the New Year bring you respite. Bx

Deb E Isle of Wight said...

Your 'orphan' cards may not sing to you, but the rest of us would be glad to produce or at least use for ideas. Think the thank you card is a brilliant and such a versatile concept. Anyone would be happy to become the foster mum for these.

Hope you have a happy and prosperous new year and bring us ever more sensational inspiration in 2016. Thanks once again for all your generosity this year...

Yvonne G said...

Morning Sue
I am more than willing to adopt each and very one of your 'orphans'. I promise I will love them even more than if they were my own.
I cannot believe it is the last day of 2015. Is it just me or does time seem to pass me by much quicker as I get older?
Apologies for not being around over the last few days. Been a bit under the weather with some sort of flu like bug so been feeling a bit rotten. Yesterday it was 5 years since Steve my partner died. It is always an emotional day but for some reason yesterday it seemed to affect me more than usual. I think it must be because I was feeling so rough.
Anyway, it is a beautiful day today. Lovely blue skies and the sun is shining. Must start preparing for my night of wild partying. I am hoping to pop over to a friends at about 6 to have a bite to eat then home by about 9. I know how to live it up! I may even push the boat out and dress suitably for the occasion and put my pyjamas on. Boys are both out and if I am completely honest I am looking forward to the peace and quiet. And now I am sounding like a party pooping Scrooge!!!
I need to make sure I am bright eyed and bushy tailed for our great leaders appearance on Hochanda. I have Christmas money screaming 'spend me' but of course there is only one thing that I want to spend my rare windfall on.
However you are spending your New Years Eve I would like to wish each and every one of you a very Happy New Year. Here's to a 2016 that will bring all of us good health and happy times,
TRACY - you rock girl. You are such a star. Your positive attitude is such an inspiration. Love and hugs x
MELODY - here's hoping and praying that 2016 marks a turning point to you all. With much love to you and yours x
There are so many of you that I would like to send a personal message to but I would be here all day.
LAINE - I could not leave you out my bestest blog buddy. Can I offer you a bit of advice? Just remebef when you are partying hard and swinging from the.chandeliers tonight there is such a thing as dignity! Clearly you have not got much but remember that you are not 16 and your behaviour should reflect this. Happy New Year gorgeous girl - love and hugs and fingers crossed for a face to face 'confrontation' in 2016 x
MARIA - roast beef gone x
Lorraine and Widely Bad - sending you big huggles!!
Sue I hope you have a fabulous time celebrating but not too much as we need you fully alert tomorrow. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your time, dedication, sharing and warmth which continues to be such a tonic and an incredibly dynamic blog. You truly are one in a million. Thank you so much. Love and huge hugs x
Signing off now. See you next year.
Crafty hugs

Lovely set of cards Sue. I'm sure they'll be loved wherever they go.

Pat S Witney said...

Hi Sue
Happy New Year's Eve to you and your family. These cards are worthy of their day on your blog. As you say we're our worst critics of the cards we make. I'm looking forward to seeing what dies you've in store for us in 2016. Thank you for all the inspiration you've given us throughout the year. Looking forward to next years card offerings. Must try to remember to re post. It's a pain having to sign in all the time as I keep forgetting.

karenlotty said...

Aaah! I'd be a great foster mother to any of these cards and as a Sue Wilson original it'd be treasured. They are all pretty and deserve a good home. Have a great New Years Eve everyone. I can't wait for 2016 to start and blow away the problems a lot of us have had in 2015 xx

Crafty Cruiser said...

I usually hold on to the cards I'm not happy with in case some inspiration hits me to alter them or take them apart to use some elements on another card. We all have different tastes so what looks not so nice to some, will look lovely to others. The "orphans" are no exception.
Doreen R

Jess Watson said...

Good morning Sue, thank you for giving us a most incredible year.
Your inspiration has been tremendous, and the cards have been gorgeous.
The orphan cards deserve an outing as well as the ones we have already seen.
It's true we are our own critics, first designs often end up in the bin!
Wishing you and your family a Happy and Prosperous 2016.
Take care Jess xxx

rolfi said...

Good morning Sue,

there are no orphans really. I like them all... how you made them and the colours are beautiful on each and every card.
You know I would let you know if I would choose another colour on a card ;-))

"Guten Rutsch ins neue Jahr" as we say in Germany which means "a good slide into the new year" to all of you

Awwww, poor little orphans.

Hi Sue
Lovely cards. Thank you so much for all your wonderful inspirational cards all through 2015. I have loved seeing them every day and am looking forward to seeing what you create in 2016.
Have a great New Years Eve everyone!

Paula said...

Such beautiful cards Sue, not good enough for you but better than a lot I've made! Poor little homeless cards, with no one to love them and care for them. I could offer any one of them a good home and love them and care for them. :) I would show them to my friends and family too, so they would have an extended family with me. (And I'm like this before any alcohol has passed my lips!!)
Happy New Year to one and all,

Myra said...

Hello Sue,
I'm glad to see you don't have so many orphans this year!! They deserve their day on the blog! The butterfly one is my favourite - I do love that butterfly.
I would just like to thank you very much for all the hard work you do to make this Blog the wonderful place it is. I didn't know what a Blog was until I saw you on television , fell in love with your style of crafting and looked for Particraft! Never regretted it!
Thanks to all the team at CE who come up with amazing products too.
Thanks for all the joy you brought in 2015 and wishing you, your husband and family every blessing in 2016, all being well.
Happy New Years Eve everyone - I know it will be tinged with sadness for some.
Love and Hugs, Myra xxx

Today is my grandsons birthday and your post gave me an idea for his card. I already made him an explosion box for his money gift, but was stumped over a card. I think my mojo is spent so soon after Christmas cards and tags. Thanks for the jump start.

Happy New Year!

Hi Sue - well if I'd made any one of these cards then I would have been absolutely delighted with myself. They are all brilliant and I particularly like the first one and am going to replicate it for a birthday next week. Your cards this year have been truly outstanding and I've loved reading and looking at your blog every day and your videos are so explicit. Thank you so much for all your enthusiasm and hard work throughout the year - am so looking forward to your New Year's shows on Hochanda. Sending love and very best wishes to you and all your followers for a very happy and healthy New Year.

Kathleen said...

You are so right Sue, we are our own worst critics, having said that I wish that my not so good cards looked even a fraction as good as your rejects lol . Thanks for all the inspiration you so selflessly give throughout the year may you always continue to do so, Have a Very Happy New Year Sue may 2016 bring you all that you desire.

Lisbeth said...

I understand where you are coming from Sue, however I think that all some of them need is a little of your usual embellishment just to "lift" them a bit. What do you think?


Lynn Dalby said...

Hello Sue.

I understand what you mean about being our own worst critics and I think like most of us you are being harsher with yourself than you should be. I think there are some nice cards in this collection. Thanks for sharing especially cards you are not happy with.

I'm looking forward to your Hochanda shows.

I should like to wish you and all a very Happy New Year.

Best wishes

Hi Sue
My dream would be to own a Sue Wilson original so I would be happy to offer your orphans a home!! Thank you for everything you've done for us in the past year and looking forward to a great start to the New Year with your Hochanda shows

Happy New Year to you and everyone on this wonderful blog

Carol Worwood said...

Hi Sue, if my cards were as good as your "orphans" I would be extremely pleased, love the butterfly one it looks like a picture. May I wish you, your family and everyone on your blog a very Happy and Inspiring New Year. xxx

barbara macaskill said...

Oh my goodness!! I would LOVE to be a foster parent to these beautiful cards!! My hope would be that I could adopt them once all hurdles have been jumped! They would have a nice, safe, bright and happy lie with me and would definitely receive a lot of love and adoration!! I have an idea for a collage frame that would hold all of these so they can shine forever! They would make me smile every time I walk into my Craft Oasis because I would put them in a place that allowed me to see them from my work island! Thank you for considering me to be their foster parent! It is a job I would take very seriously! ((((HUGS)))) and Happy New Year to you and yours!

Norah McPhee said...

Good afternoon Sue and all the Wilsonettes,
Awh what a shame, poor wee orphans needing a new home, well if you make your way up to Scotland i am quite sure you will be perfectly at home amongst my craft goodies and you will be all happy once more. Sue each and every one of your cards is a WOW to us and some of them take us gently by the hand and lead us to try out other things and some are just right up our street, but what ever the style of card it will always be a WOW in our eyes as they were made by our queen of crafting who has style and elegence in abundance. I hope that you go into a new year with your hopes and dreams overflowing and coming to fruition each and every one of them flower as you work so very hard for us and you deserve the accolades and recognition for all that you do. Take care dear lady and all the Wilsonettes, i hope that you have a wonderful time tonight and to a new year full of promise and dreams. I send you all hugs, prayers and my thoughts that you can only go up from where you are the now,
love and crafty hugs
Norah (glenochil village)

Hi Sue,
Sorry I haven't been commenting over the holidays. With so much going on with family visiting the computer has been switched off and out of sight!
I would happily adopt your orphans. I live in hope of one day winning one of your giveaways. To win your orphans would be the Jackpot!
Thank you for all your inspiration throughout the year.

Oh shame calling them 'orphan' cards, they are all lovely, as you say we are our worst critics, but others see them quite differently, I would love to be a 'foster parent' to one of them. I wish you and yours a very Happy New Year, may it be filled with Peace and Happiness throughout and all your dreams come true......luv Ursula xx

sued99 said...

I'd love to give a home to one of these 'orphan' cards. Sue your blog has been a real inspiration all through the year. Although I might not comment every day I do look each and every day and have a 'catch up' video gets every so often. I wish you and your family a happy and peaceful New Year.

Dawn Holben said...

I honestly don't know why they don't sing to you as I think they are all gorgeous.
I love them all but must admit the 5th one really sings the loudest and if I could have just pick
one that would be the one I would chose.
But would be happy to give any one of your cards a loving home where they will be admired.

Wishing you and your family a very Happy New Year and to the rest of the blog.
Have a Happy , healthy and prosperous one where all your hopes and dreams come true.

Linda Norris said...

Hi Sue,

What beautiful cards, I think they are all fab.

Sorry not been on for a while, this week between Christmas and new year is always a bad one as it is the anniversary of my Dad's death on the 28th and I spend a lot of time with my Mum. I hope everyone has had as good a Christmas as possible.
Laine how lovely to see you back, I've missed your posts.

I'd like to wish everyone a very healthy and happy New Year. I hope you all have a Sue Wilson die packed craft room in 2016.

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, like children, each card is unique and should be given its chance to shine :-) I love every one of your orphans, each for a different reason and would willingly foster/adopt them. I promise a good home with lots of love and attention.

Thank you for all the wonderful cards you have shared with us during 2015 and I am looking forward to seeing yet more on the TV tomorrow night.

I hope everyone celebrating tonight has a great time and I'll see you all in 2016!


Barbara said...

All your orphan cards are beautiful and deserve a nice home with someone who will love them.
Hope you and your family have a wonderful new year!
Really looking forward to all your shows on Hochanda, all set to record them.

Anonymous said...

All your orphan cards are individuals with their own personalities & each deserve a loving home for life xx
I can offer a peaceful shelf, with lots of affection, they won't get lonely as I have a retired husband who will watch over them & provide a light weekly dusting, 3 dogs will admire them daily & a young niece & nephew who will attempt to copy them to keep their spirits alive.

If I'm not lucky enough to adopt these, please can you provide the instructions for the brown happy birthday design

Karen G Ratcliffe said...

HI Sue
Your orphaned cards are really beautiful. I especially love the brown card with the "you are on my mind". Love the delicate flowers in the corners and the delicate design on the oval in the center. I would definitely give your card a special place as well as a good home. Happy New Year!

Hello Sue

You're so right, we are our own worst critics but your cards are really fantastic

Hi Sue. I would love to adopt one if your "orphan cards". If they are as stunning in real life as they appear on your blog, then I think you have definately been too hard on yourself. I only wish that one day my cards could be half as good as yours.

Happy New Year to you & your family & all fellow Wilsonettes

Hi Sue

I think they're all lovely. We always are harsher on our own makes than others are.

Wishing you, your family and all the blog followers a happy, healthy, successful new year. Hugs from mysrlf and Billy.

Sending a special new year hug to- Tracy, Melody, Molly and Francis, P in Wales, Steph, Fluffycat, Laine, Beth, Yvonne G, Marg, Lynda, Maria, Lorraine F, Yvonne, Teresa W, TOB (hope you can craft soon x), Pam, Norah, Sam S, Alimecca, Jan in Long Island, Bejay, Rebecca in CO, June, and anyone else I forgot who has either shown me a kindness or who is needing a special hug at the minute. The support from so many people here has really help in a year that has not been an easy one. I'm sure that crafty people are the nicest people there are. Wishing you all good things in 2016 xxx

Lynda, its true. Billy and I are very much looking forward to the fireworks, having a dog that likes to watch them is a bit unusual. He's upside down on his chair again, getting a sleep in ready!

Must go, migraines getting the better of me so limiting time looking at a screen. As I can't drink I'm off to make myself a (skinny) mocha!

Hugs everyone, T x

I, like you, am my own worst critic. I don't see a thing wrong with these. Yes, they aren't quite as fancy as you usually do, but that's OK for those of us who don't do really fancy. I would love to give them a home! I wasn't lucky enough to get any of your dies for Christmas, so guess I'm going to have to get them as presents from me to me.

Have a wonderful New Year's day and a very healthy, happy and properous 2016.

You are your worst critic and though you don't see what we see, I can understand because I too always think the worst. You are a wonderful inspiration to us all and I cannot imagine life without your demos and teaching . You have taught me so much Sue, you are truly an enigma.
I look forward so much to what you show us in 2016 which Inam sure will be stupendous!

Hi Sue
Orphans indeed young lady, they are all beautiful in their own right & I would be so thrilled to give them a new home by the sea on the North Norfolk Coast where they could sit happily & contentedly on my craft room shelves where they would be adored, loved & cherished as my own...

Talking about orphans, we collect orphans that we find on the roads & streets when we're out & about, soft toys, hard toys, anything really & take them home, give them a good wash & collect them throughout the year then we donate them to charity which will hopefully give some children some pleasure. I get quite sad when they're gone & hoping they have found a good new home.....

Crafty Hugs

Janice Brummett said...

Oh Sue, I will "adopt all of your orphan" cards anytime! I just purchased a shelf for my craft room and it would be a perfect home for these orphans. I too have cards that I'm not happy with and put them in another stack. Then when I need a card in a hurry and don't have time to make one, I go to this stack and choose one. Maybe the card only needed a bow, stick pin, a dab of ink, and could always add glitter!

Sherry said...

I would love to give those cards a new home! thanks for a chance to win

Anonymous said...

Happy 2016 I'd strongly urge you go up and read the comment 're the generosity Sue shows to her bloggers throughout the year. If you can take a few short minutes out of your day when there is a gift on offering then you can spare those same few minutes to show your gratitude for the generosity. Sue doesn't deserve to be at number 1 in the craft blog, but only YOU can help Sue achieve that by not only leaving a comment when you hope to win something. I can't remember who left that comment but I totally agree with everything words. This too isn't meant to offend, it's a reminder to say "thanks you" like you've been bought to do.

Have a good crafty 2016 everyone xx

Tami Grant said...

Sue -
