My Favourite Cards of 2015

Happy New Year bloggers!  Every year on the first day of the new year I post the cards that were my personal favourites (excluding  Christmas cards) from the previous year.  They aren't in any particular sort of order, just as I happened to find them in my folders.  This is always a post that takes me some time to compile.
I can't really say what it is about each of these cards, but only that they just sing to me in some way or another!  Many of these cards were part of the Wednesday Card Giveaway so I hope that they have been enjoyed by their winners too.   Just curious if any of these are your favourites from the year or not?  I would love to hear what you think!  Here's hoping for a fabulous 2016 and many more cards, ideas and techniques to come in the new year!!

Some of you may have heard me mention on my last shows that I have kept track of the number of cards that I made in 2015.  Anyone want to venture a guess?  Include it with your comment, would love to know what you think?

One further note, at 8pm this evening I launch the new One Day Special on Hochanda.  I will have shows at 9am, 12 noon, 4pm and 7pm tomorrow as well.  I do hope that you will be able to tune in to see my cards and demos!   All for now, Sue x

Kitty Davies said...

Morning Sue.
A very happy and healthy new year.
Sue all the cards are beautiful. but at a quick glance, the second one jumps out,
maybe it is the colours and flowers.
Sue I bet you have made about 500 cards.
Take care and Thank you. Tv all set Kitty.

hollyberry said...

Lots of cards for us today,we are so lucky. They are all so beautiful but I do love the black and white with the colour coming from the flowers one. Just gorgeous.
Want to wish everyone on this blog a very Happy and hopefully healthy (or healthier for some of us,me included) New Year! This is a loving and supportive place to be and although I don't say about my health I get support by reading all the comments left for others who are having poroblems ,all a lot bigger than mine. So thank you all.
Sue Happy New Year,hope it iscas successful as 2015 has been. Number of cards you have made,well I reckon about the 1000 mark. Just hope that you enjoy making them all!

carol edwards said...

Sue your cards for today are all beautiful, filigree, and exquisite. I would find it hard to even try to pick a favourite. How many cards have you made this year? Wow I bet it's between 1500 to 2000. Enjoy your day Happy New Year to you and all blog followers x

Jayem said...

Happy New Year Sue

Yes, I can see why these cards are some of your favourites. I do like the black and gold striplet made into a square and has a Congratulations sentiment, Enjoy with the coloured flowers and, a third choice, Wishing you a Wonderful Day.

I do feel grateful for your inspirational videos and that I can get all your dies sent so quickly from Bev's Cross Crafts in Tasmania. She is a wonderful advocate for you.

Warmest regards

Jan from NSW (Australia)

Karen Derbyshire said...

Love all the cards Sue. Looking forward to watching your show tonight.

Jacqui oakes-alcock said...

Happy new year everyone, Sue they are all beautiful, I would think you have made 1800 cards in 2015.

Janice K said...

Good morning Sue.
A very Happy New Year to you and all your blog followers.
I love your line up of favourite cards, the peach ones and the 'Enjoy' all particularly catch my eye, I wish I had your talent for design!!!
I think that your 2015 total must be around 2500 cards? X

CraftySuetoo said...

Good morning and a very Happy New Year to you Sue, and everyone. This is a wonderful selection of cards from this year and I can see why they are among your favourites. Considering I especially love sparkle, bows, flowers and stick pins the card that stands out for me is the "grunge" card with the accented red flowers and hessian piece - sorry I've already forgotten the sentiment and it's nothing to do with too much celebrating last night! I think you must have made around 1700 cards last year. Hugs to all. Sue XXX

tracy w said...

Debra Kenworthy said...

Happy New Year Everyone!! Gorgeous selection of cards. Your grunge card is my favourite one but you've chosen many of my other favourite cards too. I think you've made 1526 cards. Debra x

Jan on the Fosse said...

Happy New Year to you all.
Sue how lovely to way to start the new year seeing all these beautiful cards.I love the Enjoy card with the black background and the new dainty patchwork one.I think you must have made just about 2015 for guess.

Janette MacArthur said...

A very happy New Year to you Sue and to all your bloggers! Your selection of favourites is truly stunning - I can't choose my favourite - love them all! You have given me so much inspiration over this last year so many thanks for that! I reckon you must have made over a thousand cards over the past year - I wish too I had kept a note of just how many I have made - certainly not as many as you!
Janette x

rosiejt said...

Happy New Year, Sue! No idea how many cards you have made over 2015 -1090?
How difficult to pick favourites. My top five from your selection would be 1, 2, 5, 11 and 17.

Jan.moogie said...

Happy New Year Sue and what better way to start by looking at your gorgeous cards and then watching you on TV later. Woohoo joy.thanks for all you do, hugs xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

auscrafts said...

I can't remember all the cards you've shown but I know I loved the 5th one with the red flowers all the ellements and colours of that card appealed to me def my favourite .At a guess I would say you made at least 2000 counting the ones on your blogg and the cards on the shows

cr@fty said...

Good morning Sue
Happy New Year to you and all Wilsonettes. Like many others I can't choose a favourite because I love them all.what a fabulous way to kick off 2016. I would estimate that you have made in excess of 2000 cards.
Hugs x
Heather T

TDQ Karen said...

Absolutely stunning display, Hard to choose a favourite but number 2 definitely up there. I would guess at about 1500 but really hard to say

Sonia Stephenson said...

Hi Sue. Fabulous selection of your favourites - all stunning! Particularly like the first and fourth cards as I remember thinking "wow" when you shared them. I can't imagine how many cards you've made through 2015, could guess at about 1500+. Just thank you for sharing them with us and being such a wonderful inspiration. Happy New Year to everyone, have a lovely day. Hugs to all xxx

Anonymous said...

Happy New Year, Sue, to you and all your family and to all of our blog friends, and hoping that 2016 will be kinder to so many who really need some extra luck.
Lovely surprise to see the 'keepers' today - especially numbers one and five which had been saved for inspiration on the days they were posted. Also particularly liked the grunge card on 24th August and the one for 23rd December and ............
Well, the guessing game - think maybe 1700 allowing for holidays and show days and video days but could well be more. My sum total was around 35 ha ha didn't do any as still haven't tidied my craft area - but watch this space!! Literally.
Melody, as ever, thoughts are with you.
And brave Tracy - be strong and keep your wonderful sense of humour - hope you're nae leakin the noo!

PharmacyMichele said...

Fantastic selection of cards & so many in my favourite colour (blue)! My guesstimate on your card total is 1250.

I hope you have a very happy & healthy New Year.


Chris Curry said...

What a gorgeous set of cards, several zing out to me but impossible to pick a favourite. Your talent is an inspiration to us all, along with Julia, Phill and John of course. I would guess the number of cards you made last year was around 1500. Really looking forward to your shows on Hochanda, have a fantastic 2016, you and all your family and team. Xx

Yvonne H said...

Happy New Year to everyone & hope 2016 is going to be a good one.
Sue all your cards are beautiful I love them all. I reckon you have made about 1950 cards. Thank you very much for all your inspiration & tutorials. Yvonne xx

Happy New Year Sue and all Wilsonettes . Hope 2016 is a good year for you all. Hard to pick a favourite card Sue , so many lovely cards . Look forward to shows. JJxx

Clai01 said...

Hi Sue

a very Happy new year for 2016 xx
I'm perhaps going to take a guess on 2,400 cards ?
it's a huge number of cards and an enormous amount but thinking it might be near ?
love all your favourite cards they are simply stunning! x

dmj from kettering said...

You are right, they do zing!!! The 5th one for me!!

I'd guess about 1750 cards during this year, but wouldn't be surprised if it's higher!!

Doreen x

Rosemarie said...

Morning Sue. A happy New Year. All these cards sing and are so beautiful, really can't choose, but if forced I would have to say the grunge card. My math is not brilliant but I think you have probably made in excess of 2300 cards in 2015. Looking forward to this evening.

Love Rosemarie x x

Morning Sue. Wishing you and your family a Healthy and Happy New Year. Well what can i say about your first post of the year but WOW WOW WOW they are all stunning. You must have been sitting for hours trying to pick your favourites from all of the beautiful cards you have made this year. I love it when you put sparkle,ribbons, pearls and then to finish off with your gorgeous stick pins on to your cards. So after looking at your cards for about 10minutes my favourite top five are No 1, 2, 4, 11, and 15 but my all time favourite is card No 2 it just has everything going for it, the layout and all the beautiful coloured flowers you on it. Sorry for waffling on lol. You must have made about2500 cards this year as when you are on the tv you must have hundreds of beautiful samples with you and we never get to see them all which is such a shame. Got the tv all set to tape your shows tonight and tomorrow. Good luck with them and cant wait to see your beautiful samples.
Take care everyone and Happy New Year to you all.
Best Wishes

Loraine Jefferis said...

What a New Year treat seeing your favourite cards (and mine)again. I love them all but if I had to choose it would be number 5. I fell in love with it the first time you showed it. Have set the recorder for your shows can't wait. Happy New Year to you and yours. Best wishes Loraine Jefferis xx

Clare W said...

HNY Sue! Mega lovely cards. I really love all of them. As for how many you've made, lots! I'll guess 999 excluding ccards. Will be watching your fab shows later. Thanks for the heads up. HNY all Wilsonettes.

sonja_w said...

Happy New Year Sue and all the Wilsonettes , may 2016 be all you wish for and more.

Izzy said...

Happy New Year Sue and all Wilsonettes!!

Lovely array of cards - my own personal favourites are:-

No. 2 - the colourful Enjoy
No. 5 - Classy Grunge with the stunning red flowers
No. 7 - Vertical THANKS, some very clever cutting to make the frame
No. 11 - Triple Lattice/Lace background and stamped red flowers panel
No. 14 - Balck/gold Congratulations

As to how many cards you made this year?...well, at least one per day for the blog and then one for each new die set, so that takes us to between 450 - 500 and then about 1000+ is my guess

Looking forward to tonight's launch and the shows tomorrow - just going to set the Sky box to record them all...


alimecca said...

Hi Sue,
Happy New Year everyone - hope it is a good one for you all.

gwen70 said...

Wonderful collection of cards Sue, I will take a guess at 1000 cards

karenlotty said...

2016 promises to be a fantastic year for me - my Ruby wedding, my first grandchild, a surprise free holiday and a milestone birthday
All the cards are favourites to me I suppose the "Enjoy" really catches my eye - I think it's the colours
I guess about 1095 to 1500 cards What on earth do you do with them when they've had their day?

Barbara Gosden said...

Happy New Year, Sue
A lovely collection of stunning cards, I think the first is my favourite.
The recorder is set up for your shows.

Morning Sue, A Very Happy New Year to you and your Family.
This is a fabulous showcase of all your favourites, they are all stunning, No. 1 is especially stunning, as is the shabby chic grunge one.
Have some fabulous shows.
I don't know how many cards you made in 2015, but will bet it is much more than we think !!!
Thank you for all your inspiration last year, and I look forward to what you show us in 2016.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

hettygarlick said...

No wonder they're your favourites Sue - they're absolutely beautiful. I think if I had to choose my ultimate favourites out of those it would be the first two, but it's a very difficult choice!

As to how many cards you make, I would guess something like 1500 because I've heard you say that you make cards every day, and I'm sure you're much quicker at it than I am. It usually takes me a whole morning or afternoon to make a card that I'm pleased with!

Anne said...

What a wonderful selection of cards - I can't possibly chose a favourite.

Tressa said...

New Year Greetings to one and all.

Sue, may you continue to craft and give us pleasure for yet another year. For those who have not had the best of times through 2015, I really do hope that 2016 brings you health and happiness, you deserve it.

All the cards are gorgeous so wouldn't want to try and pick my favourite(s).

How many cards did you make last year. Your dedication to your craft, Florida visits, Hochanda, and CE visits not withstanding, I reckon you may have managed nearer to 3000. Which is about 2950 more than me.


lydia jordan said...

Morning Sue,
Gorgeous cards, love them all, if I had to pick just one it would be no 1, love it.
The number of cards you have made my guess is probably way out but I'm saying 1,400.
Have a lovely New Years Day.

Sandie Braithwaite said...

Good morning and happy new year, Sue. I love them all but if I had to choose one out of all of them, no. 13 would be it. Looking forward to tonight. xx

marg said...

Hello Sue
To you and all the blog family!
I love all todays cards and couldn't choose between them.
It was quiet here last night, I went to be at 10, and no loud fireworks at midnight!
Due to meds like Wheelybad, because of the dreaded M*****e, no alcohol! So not much fun celebrating with Tea!lol
Lets hope they find a cure for Arthritis...Migraine..ME...COPD..and Cancer and all the other things that make our lives hell in 2016 that would be wonderful!
Till then ...keep crafting !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Take care Sue
Love Marg

Hi Sue - Wishing you a Very Happy New Year and thank you for bringing such an amazing array of cards throughout 2015. I have simply loved all your cards this year and my all time favourite was one in June - Beautiful Day and I was so pleased it was one of your favourites too. Can't wait to see what 2016 brings. I would hazard a guess at the number of cards you have made is around 1,400 but could be even more! Looking forward to your shows on Hochanda today and tomorrow and maybe the number will be revealed then. Best wishes

nattyboots said...

Hi Sue
Wow what a lovely array of cards to drool over, my choice would be a Toss up between number 2 and 16 , just beautiful.

Donna Golby said...

Lovely round up. Especially like no 5
As to cards made in 2015 my guess is 1200.

Here's to lots more in 2016

See you later on tv

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue and all Wilsonettes - HAPPY NEW YEAR to each and every one of you. I hope you had a good one. I managed to stay up to watch the fireworks from Stirling Castle, we can see them from our upstairs windows and they were beautiful.

Sue, all your favourite cards are gorgeous but my personal favourite has to be the second one, mainly because I was lucky enough to win the 'enjoy' die on launch :-)

I have no idea how many cards you have made, I do remember you saying but my poor old brain doesn't hold on to information like that now. I suppose I could check the recoding but that would be cheating lol. Like others I am sure it must be in excess of 1000.

Wishing all the best for everyone in the coming year.

Jean Z said...

Hi Sue love todays card and all of the others but 4 and 10 are my favourites. love Jean Z xxxx

crossstitchmarg said...

Happy New Year Sue,
I cannot choose a favourite from these cards I love them all. I remember trying my own version of a few of them and the people who received them were delighted.
2016 I hope will be a fantastic one, I am hoping to retire early this year, due to ill health I haven't worked since April and the company doctor stated last month I am not fit for any job, so I am hoping the company will give me early retirement I meet with them again in 11 days.
Crafting is the thing that has kept me going it's therapeutic and with your and John Lockwood's inspiration I have done plenty of that over the last 8 months.
Thank you Sue

Muriel Kelly said...

Hello Sue and sll,
I love the first card, " Thanks so much"and the " It's your day celebrate " with the favorite Canadian background.
Really looking forward to 2016 and your inspiration and wonderful ideas and designs- new dies too of course.
I think you would probably made more than 1000 cards, that is about 3 per day so allowing for shows and TV I guess that would be possible, for a figure 1024.
Muriel x

Scottydog said...

First of all Happy new year everyone!
A beautiful selection of cards today thank you Sue! I seem to be drawn towards the cards with the sentiment 'just because'. It may well be the colour as I also like the blue thank you cards. I would guess you will have made in excess of 2000 cards & the total may well be nearer 3000 cards?
Looking forward to 8pm tonight, not to mention tomorrow!

darcydaydream said...

All of them beautiful. Happy new year xx

Kiraneries said...

Hi Sue, they are all gorgeous cards. If I had to choose then the first card. It is so pretty, very delicate and really feminine. Happy crafting new year to you and everyone.

Morning Sue, Happy New Year to you and everyone.
I'm sorry but I can't choose a favourite from today's cards, they are all favourites for me.
Just want to say a big thank you for all your inspiration throughout the year and also taking the time to do video demos which are much appreciated.
My guess at the number of cards you have made during the year is 1372.
Take care everyone and have a lovely day whatever plans you have for today.

Deb E Isle of Wight said...

Can see why these have made it as your favourite cards - love love love the shabby chic one, but they ae all beautiful.

I think you've made around 1495 cards this year as a minimum - even if I'm way off, don't know how you keep it up with all the inspiration.

As with yesterday's comment, hope you bring us lots of wonderful samples and goodies this year to top up on the crafty stash.. Happy New Year to all

Anonymous said...

A very happy new year Sue,
Pam said it all, I agree it really is a wonderful blog, all the lovely caring ladies that I read of daily & feel I have got to know,(only met a few in person though) thankyou for Sue, for doing this for us all.
All your cards are beautiful, even the odd grungy ones, so very difficult to choose, they all seem to be my personal favourites, but the ones I go to on a regular basis are the pierced edges,with all the frills, so I would choose the first one.
I think you have made at least 3&1/2thousand cards in 2015
Look forward to seeing you tonight
Marlene O xx

Karen Drew said...

Beautiful selection of cards. think my most favourite has the be the "Enjoy" card. Lovely colours.
My guess for the amount of cards you have made would be approx 650.
Happy new Year

HeatherT said...

Hi Sue,
It's impossible to choose a favourite from these, they are all so beautiful. I would guess that you have made about 1200 cards this last year.
Looking forward to seeing you on hochanda later and I hope that you have a great time.
Happy 2016,

Yorks butterfly said...

Hi Sue, what a great way to start the New Year with a bevy of beautiful cards, so difficult to pick a favourite as they are all stunning and I can understand why they are on your favourite list.
Missed yesterdays post so would like to wish congratulations to the lucky winner of the orphan cards.
Finally would like to wish you and all your Wilsonetts a Very Happy New Year.

Gloria Robey said...

Hello Sue,
Happy New Year, Health and Happiness to you and yours.
Every one of these cards is beautiful, but I like the ones with stamped and coloured images the best. Stamping was my first love, and you never get over your first love!!!!
Now as to how many cards you've made over the year, I would think it would be about 1750.
love and best wishes to everyone.

Tracy Stitt said...

Morning sue and crafters.
Happy new year.
I really love the first one the best. They all look amazing.
I dunno if I could hazard a guess to how many you've made in the year but I'm guessing in the thousand mark somewhere.

Well ladies roof fixed. hopefully no more leaks!!
Especially with this horrible weather everywhere the now.

Happy new year to all the lovely bloggers.
Love to all xx

Kate's Cards said...

Amazing! What talent.
Happy New Year xxxx

Lorraine Freeman said...

Happy New Year everyone
Sue thank you so much for sharing these cards, no 5 is my favourite as it's just beautiful. I love so many of the blue and white cards but your take on grunge just speaks to me :)
My guess would be 750 but not sure how you could make so many when you are involved in so much else, it will be very interesting to find out the true total.
My tee total celebrations went well at my best friends house. I got the St Kitts set as my Christmas present so that was wonderful.
Laine, I hope you had a wonderful time and are not suffering ill effects from imbibing too much. Oh yes I use icon too they are very good, still not made any firm decisions on my spends. I know I need some more glues, and I don't have any texture paste. I find decision making very difficult now days.
Wheely, I hope 2016 is kinder to you healthiest.
To my many new friends, thank you so much for making me so welcome. I wish all of you a wonderful 2016.
I have an idea for a new blog so will have to see if I can make it work and I hope it's not something already out there.
Hubby is making me boiled egg and soldiers so off to eat that.

Hi Sue. All the cards are fantastic and its hard to choose a favourite, love them all. Looking forward to seeing all your shows on Hochanda, already got the recorder set so that I don't miss anything.
Best wishes for 2016 xx

Suebak said...

Hello Sue,

Wishing you a Very Happy 2016.

Love the blue and white thank you card due to the colours and simplicity. But, all your cards are indeed lovely.

I would hazard a guess at the number of cards produced must be nearer 100.


Brenda Lello said...

Hello Sue,

I'm sure all my WOWS would have been heard miles away as I scrolled through today's post. It's like card heaven, each one equally beautiful, I'm very proud to say I am the proud owner/caretaker of card number 11 it sits proudly on the shelf in my craft room. Thank you Sue for this beautiful treat you have given us today. What a fantastic start to the New Year. LOL

That's quite a challenge you set for us to guess how many cards you have made, because when Julia or John or on the television they will often say Sue made that card, I would guess as others have said you had made in excess of 1000, I will guesstimated you have made 1235.

Wishing you, your family and all your blog followers are very happy and healthy New Year, take care love Brenda XXX

Happy new year to you, Sue, all your family, and everyone at Creative Expressions. I love all your cards and don't know how you manage to choose favourites! Every card is so individual and beautiful. Real works of art and so inspiring.

Thank you once again for sharing your skills and techniques wth us. Your blog is the first thing I read every morning and my grand-daughter Jennie continues to be enthralled by your videos and still pretends to be 'Sue'.

Take care and have a brilliant 2016.

Love Diane (Cards2Di4)

Paula said...

It is so hard to pick just one of those cards Sue, but the first wins for me. :) As to how many cards you've made, what a question! More than 365 obviously because you make one a day at least for this blog. Plus demo cards, so a wild guess is 1012!! Way out no doubt, but it's all good for a laugh. :)

Happy and healthy new year to you and your family sue xx

An easy choice for me to decide on my fav is no 2 the wonderful enjoy card. Something about it just y sings to me, I have copied it many times and it remains my all time favourite card.

Well I guess you have made around about 2250 cards last year, I expect I am way off!

Keep well Sue and I look forward to seeing you at ally pally in the spring


Nana on the Hill said...

What a stunning set of cards, l don't know how you do it but thank you for your inspiration. Happy New Year to everyone.

Beautiful cards Sue, I couldn't begin to imagine how many cards that you created last year although I might take a guess at around 425. I bet I am way
Enjoy a wonderful and safe 2016

Welsh Dors said...

Hi Sue,
My favourite card is the "wishing you a wonderful day" card. I loved it when I first saw it and still love it. Couldn't possibly hazard a guess to the number of cards you've made in 2015 it must be a huge amount. Off to set the record for your Hochanda shows, thanks for the reminder.
Wishing you a happy, healthy new year.

Pat L said...

Hi Sue
What a beautiful start to 2016, I love all your cards but if I had to choose a favourite it would be the second one. I love the sentiment on the last card, it's from one of CE clear stamp sets hubby bought me for Christmas. I reckon you made 1,825 cards, a average of five a day, but it's probably more!
Happy new year to you and all the lovely people here, you are all the flowers in the garden of life,

Tracy glad you got the roof fixed
Karenlotty what a wonderful year you have ahead, enjoy

Hugs and best wishes everyone

Norah McPhee said...

Good afternoon Sue and the wilsonettes,
Well Sue, you know how i said i like pristine and clean cards especially your all in white cards that you haven't got one of them in your favourites this year which is a surprise, well my favourite is the grungy one in the coffee slats and the deep red flower with the black and red accents, it is beautiful and would just be the one to turn me in to trying to make one. The first card would be my next favourite but other than that i couldnt' choose one over another as they are all stunning examples of beauty. About 1680 or so i would reckon as some weeks will be more prolific that others but i would hate the mailing bill for them, lol.
I hope that you have a wonderful year Sue and it is the year that you remember most as your best. Sending hugs to you and your family flower and enjoy the rest (ha ha ha) of the break.
To all i wish you a happy new year and hope that for those that are at the bottom find their way back up again, to our friends that are ill i hope that this will be the year that you come back to being yourself and come back to us, your friends.
With love and crafty hugs
Norah (Glenochil Village)

Rose in Chester said...

Hi Sue,
Those cards are simply divine, I love, love love them all.

How about 1200 cards but I wouldn't be surprised if it's more. However, you don't just make cards but there's all the designing/testing and sourcing to do, in addition to the cards.
Surprise me..............

Good luck with the show tonight and tomorrow.
Hugs, Rose

granny sue said...

Hi Sue. Happy New Year. What lovely cards again today but I don't know why, but I love the second one. I loved it when you first showed it and I still love it. I do love colourful things, perhaps that's why. SueL x

Jayne S said...

Sue and all blog folliwers, Happy New Year, may it be full of happinessband crafting.
All of your cards today are stunning
but one stands out for me, its the second card shown, Wow its a beautiful card.

Meg said...

Hi Sue and a Happy New Year to you and yours.

Sue I love all these cards so can't choose a best.
I was thinking about all the cards you made last year and that's a real hard job guessing how many. There are the daily cards and the twofors plus all the extras for you die launches and the tv shows. Then you make at the craft shows too. I'll take a guess at 975.

Love and hugs to all

Sandy G said...

Hi Sue
A very Happy New Year to you and all your lovely blog followers! My favourite of these cards is the grungy one with the panels and red flowers. Just gorgeous. My guess for number of cards made is around 1500!
Have a great day everyone.

Lynn (delphinoid) said...

Wishing you and all your family a very Happy New Year!
Hope 2016 brings you all lots of good health, plenty of wealth and loads of happiness. X X

Your selection of cards are all gorgeous, I love them all but the one with the sentiment 'Wishing you a beautiful day' is the one I'm drawn to and definitely one I'm going to take inspiration from to make something similar.

Hope everyone has a lovely day.

Happy Crafting!!! :) X X

CraftyJo said...

Lovely cards, I wouldn't want to pick just one favourite from them!

Nanny Jo said...

Happy New Year, Sue, and to all the Wilsonettes! I can see why you would choose these cards as your favourites, Sue, they are all so beautiful. For myself, I would pick the top one as my very, VERY favourite!
I would guess that you have probably made in the region of 1250 cards over the year.

Bejay Roles said...

All of your cards Sue are my favorites but the Wishing You a Wonderful Day card is a special favorite!
I can't even imagine how many cards you made in 2015 and I know I'll be way off with this number but I'll say 882!
Thank you again for this amazing blog and all of your inspiration and tutorials!

Hi Sue and everyone.
wow Sue they are all so lovely ! Have loved seeing how
you have used all the dies and coloured card. Now running
low on double sticky tape and ink so will try to get some
asap. Happy new Year and hope you had a nice time with the
family. Guessing how many cards you made during 2015, not
easy but to give a number just for fun I say 1240.

Hope 2016 will be a good crafting year!

Hugs to all wilsonette's and to my very good friends,

Lynn Dalby said...

Hello Sue.

These are all lovely and some stunners, I love being able to pin your Cards, very often to try to copy, lol. From this collection the second card has to be one of my all time favourites, I intend to copy that one for my Daughters Birthday this year. Thank you for sharing your skill and knowledge with us all.

I'm looking forward to your shows.

barbara macaskill said...

What a gorgeous assortment of cards!! One of my favorites is the first Wonderful day card! I am going to guess that you have made 897 cards this year! Happy New Year!

Suzzette Yandle said...

Such a lovely line-up of Sue Wilson creations from the year 2015! Some of these cards were new to me for I have not yet been following you a full year. My favorite from these cards has to be the first "Thanks So Much" card. This card inspired me to try this design even though I did not have the exact dies you used on this card. I had other Sue Wilson dies that I used. The card turned out lovely and I am holding onto it for that "extremely special" person and occasion. My guess on the number of cards you have made during 2015 would be 1200 cards. You are one busy lady. Happy New Year my friend!

hazel young said...

Stunning cards Sue i can see why they are your favourites, i think my favourite is the first one and i guess you have made 1378 cards. happy new year

Lesley Cann said...

How lovely it is to look back at the selection of cards they are so beautiful. Happy new year to you all.

Jean said...

Lovely works of art!

Lindsay Martin said...

Happy New Year Sue, well what a wonderful collection of cards, I'm surprised you could narrow it down to 20 though. You have so many wonderful designs of dies to help you do such masterpieces. I would think your card making tally would be well in excess of 1250. X

IVY Cheong said...

Happy new year all! Wow! These cards are some of my favourites of all time, amazing inspirations and more to come please...... Ivy xx

What a fabulous selection of cards.

Lisbeth said...

Happy New Year Sue. What a fabulous selection of cards from last year. My three favourites from this selection are the first one "Thanks so Much", the second "Enjoy" one - which I suspect is your favourite and the grungy "Wishing you a wonderful day". My guess as to how many cards you made last year is 2015.
Can't wait to see you on TV later on tonight!


Haze T said...

Hi Sue
A very happy new year to you & your family.
Gorgeous cards & how can I possibly choose between them, as they are all so beautiful in their own different styles & I love em all..
My guess for how many cards you made in 2015 is.......1864
Enjoy your new Years day

Barbara said...

All your cards are amazing but we always have our favourites that just appeal to us. I personally love No.1 and No.18 but that's just may taste.
As to how many cards you have made I don't think anyone will get it exactly as you never seem to stop! I am going to say about 3150 with all the new die releases and Hochanda shows. I am probably way out but you do make a heck of a lot of cards!!!!

DeeDee7770 said...

Happy New Year Sue. I can't wait to see what new dies, embossing folders, techniques and other products 2016 will bring. Only your imagination knows. It's going to be a great year!

craftynanna jo widnes said...

Hi Sue, well what can i say except that they are all gorgeous and i can't choose a favourite, I have pinned them all as well, i think you may have made about 2016 cards. lol crafty hugs to everyone and A Happy New Year too. love Johanna

lritchie said...

Hi Sue, Happy New Year to you and yours. All Of your cards are my fav but I happen to love the first one and the "Youre so Sweet", It must be the pastel colors

Myra said...

Hello Sue,
Happy New Year!
You have a lot of my favourites in there too! I think it's number two on the list - Enjoy - showcasing all your lovely flowers to date! I loved that card and it has been re-pinned so many times. I really like the first one too.
As for how many cards - I tried to be logical but it was too mind- blowing! Daily blog cards, some twofers , launch cards for dies , tv shows, where you always have far more than anyone else. Etc etc. I am going to hazard a guess at 1860.
Happy New Year to everyone!
Thank you Frances - you are most welcome!
Love Myra xxxx

KarinsArtScrap said...

o my what gorgous and stunning cards Sue.
I wish you a Happy New Year.

Gr Karin

Dawn Holben said...

They are all gorgeous but admit I do have two favourites and that is the 1st one and the 5th one.
I adore the first one because it is so pretty and love the colour and those dies.
But saying that they are all pretty and I love the 2nd one because it is a beautiful card that I know I could never
in my wildest dreams achieve.
I think you call it it grunge but you make it looks so pretty and I know mine would look tatty if I ever tried it.
As for the cards it must be well over a 1000 and more likely to be over 2000 thinking logically as you post one everyday and then there are the double days plus all the demos you do and then there are the cards that don't get shown.
So my quess would be approx 2250.

Happy new year x

Sarah Brennan said...

You are an inspiration. I reckon about 1200 separate cards, allowing for travelling, inspiration, blogging and demos; excluding reproducing previous designs.
Happy New Year - loking forward to seeing you on Hochanda! Unless it's a trick question, as I know that you usually only produce card fronts rather than actual cards!

Anne Prescott said...

Happy New Year to you and your family. No favourites - just luv them all !!!

Ann said...

Hi Sue

All of these cards are beautiful if I had to pick a favourite it would be the one

with the distressed look it is so unusual.

My guess for the number of cards you have made would be 1975

Happy New Year to all

Hello Sue and all the Wilsonettes. You have given us many years of inspiration and I for one thank you from my heart. I hope everyone in Sues world has a wonderful year. Best wishes.xx

Debbie said...

I thought it was rather interesting to see your choices. Out of the 15 cards, 3 were tone on tone, and the other 12 had gorgeous bolder colors on them. I think your bolder look cards are just gorgeous. For myself, I won't do tone tone on tone, they look so boring. Here's to a more colorful 2016! Happy New Year!

NancyR said...

All beautiful, Sue. I just "discovered" you several months ago an have become a real fan. In fact, I'm using 2 of your dies to make my daughter's wedding invitations. Resolution to add more to my collection!

Have a wonderful, healthy and happy New Year!

Yvonne G said...

Hi Sue
Happy New Year TV star extraordinaire. Your appearance on Hochanda was fantastic and has been the highlight of my year. LOL!!!
I had no problem spending my Christmas money and in a few days I will be the proud owner of 2 of the bundles which were on offer this evening. Can't wait to see you again tomorrow and I cannot promise that I will not buy anything else.
How many cards? Well I actually think that it might even be in excess of 3000. I am thinking back to when I had no limitations that would keep me from crafting and know how many cards I could make over the course of a weekend. It was quite a few I can tell you. So I am going to hazard guess and say about 3278. I know it's a completely random number but that's the kind of girl I am!! I do hope you are going to tell us the correct amount.
As far as choosing a favourite card I think that is a hard one. I have every single card in today's gallery in a folder as I love them all. I have made a card which was influenced by the second card and even though it was not as lovely as yours I was quite pleased with it and the recipient was bowled over x
A great big Happy 2016 to everyone. I do hope it will be a good year for us all. For anyone who has had a rough time in 2015 or health problems or issues, big or small let's hope that things are on the up and there are brighter times ahead x
I am please to say I made it to my friends last night and I hadn't seen her for about 2 months so we had a lot of catching up to do. We managed to last until about 9.30 then both had to admit defeat and decided to give in to our feelings of desire for a hot drink, a hot water bottle and our beds. I know - I am such a party animal and living it up is second nature (not)!!!
LAINE - I am hoping that your absence is nothing serious and due to your out of hand shenanigans and over enthusiastic gaiety whilst welcoming the New Year in with open arms. Did your finances manage to stretch to a little retail therapy during Sue's show this evening? x
LORRAINE - Laine obviously 'imbibed' far more than she should and I would not be surprised if her salacious behaviour got the better of her!! Huggles to you x
TRACY - so glad you sorted out your leak. Hope you are feeling ok. Lots of love xxx
Sending love to everyone else as well of course x
I am planning a day full of Sue tomorrow. Obviously we have the hochanda shows and I do have quite a few videos that I have not viewed yet for various reasons. I am trying to think of a way to get myself organised to enable me to be able to craft more than I did in 2015. This is not a difficult goal but there must be an easy way to achieve it. I desperately need to sort out my craft room so that I am able to find what I am looking for - that would be a good place to start. I have decided not to make any New Year resolutions and just go with the flow in the hope that I will be more successful achieving something rather than nothing. We'll see - watch this space.
Anyway people it is bedtime. Need some shut eye so that I am fully alert and able to give Sue my undivided attention which is what she deserves.

Diane said...

Hi Sue
Lovely to see some of my favourites there too. How many cards have you made - well I think it must be about 900 or even 1,000. I bet I'm nowhere near but it will be interesting to see.

Hi Sue,
Thank you for the great inspiration you have given us this year. Your cards are so beautiful it is impossible to pick a favourite. My collection of dies is growing apace and I am looking forward to trying out some new techniques in 2016. Have a very happy and healthy 2016.

I guess you will have made many more cards than we realise but I would think it would be in the region of 2500. I bet we'll all be surprised at the total when you tell us.

Your cards are beautiful! So, how many cards have you made?

Sandy H said...

What a beautiful array of cards. How you manage to keep coming up with such stunning designs day after day amazes me. As to how many you have made, I would just be plucking a out of the air. You've probably shown five hundred or so new designs here and on your shows and made a lot of them a several times with all the demos. So my guess is 1096. Whatever the number, please just keep on making them.
Take care everyone.

Wheely Bad said...

Hi Sue

Oh some favourites here... I love pretty much all of them for different reasons but the one that has stuck in my mind since you posted it is the "Enjoy" card, with the multicoloured flowers. It's not AT ALL the sort of card I make, it just makes me happy, with all the colour popping off the dark background.

Confession- I forgot yesterday was Friday (yeah, I know...) so have set the box for an early repeat, maybe my waking up and not getting back to sleep was my subconscious reminding me I had forgot what day it was! Issue rectified and box now set for all tomorrow's shows. Planning to watch but at least should something come up I won't miss anything!

Cards in a year... hmmm... as you also design the dies plus TV, travel etc I'd imagine for every card posted on the blog there'd be a 2nd or maybe a third so I'm gussing at 813. Which is about 800 more than me give or take. But I did manage 45 minutes cleaning up the craft table of mess on Friday, from wrapping Christmas gifts because mum in law has put in an order plus it's my mums birthday in a fortnight so I need the space to put cards together. Anyway, however many you made each one has brought us joy. Thank you and wishing you all the best for the shows.

I did enjoy the fireworks on tv and the ones set off nearby. Watched them alone though, both my men were asleep. Spoilt myself with a mint mocha. Someone locally either was too piddled last night or had too many fireworks as they let them off tonight too! Luckily at 6:30pm, not midnight!

Lorraine F, Lynda, Alimecca... thank you & hugs xxx

Marg, couldn't have put it better myself. "Lets hope they find a cure, until the, keep crafting" Pure brilliance my friend, you put one heck of a smile on my face! Hugs xxx

Well, that's me. Need a cold drink of juice and water, check hochanda website then back to bed for some sleep.

Hugs to all of you, enjoy the Saturday 'Suefest'!

Love, T x

Happy New Year, Sue and fellow Wilsonettes !!

Stunning cards Sue !!!
I absolutely love cards one and five. Definitely firm favourites of mine too !!!
However I adore so many of the remaining top twenty and would include them amongst my favourites also !!

I was the lucky recipient of card number twelve, which is displayed proudly on my mantelpiece :-)
Thank you for sharing so many stunning cards and amazing techniques throughout the year.

Hugs and Best Wishes for 2016 to you all,

Hello Sue

Love them all and nice to see them again. I would think you have made close to 1000 cards during the year.

Hi Sue

Thanks for showing these cards again, they are beautiful - I have enjoyed looking through them very much.

Phew, how many cards? Well a lot - I will go with 1,359!

How about that for a random number :-)

Susan Battensby said...

Hi Sue
Happy New Year.
Your first card is so so pretty and I also love What a Wonderful Day. Would like to see more of that distress style, they are by far my favourites. Would like to thank you for all your wonderful inspiration in 2015 just the job when my crafting mojo goes AWOL. x

Stamps and Paper said...

Great collection of cards Sue all so beautiful...I would guess around 859

Hi Sue
Forgot about the number of cards - I really don't have a clue but will guess at around 962! x

Maria Illsley said...

Hi Sue
What a beautiful collection of your favourites.
I cannot decide which is mine they are all wonderful. I have noticed there are quite a few blue cards in the collection along withPeach/pink cards.
A guess on how many you've made is about 1500 xxx

Pat S Witney said...

Hi Sue
A stunning collection of cards that are your favourites from throughout the year. I assume that you're including for shows you've done and also made for John and co. So in that case I'd say getting on for or even surpassing 3000 cards.

Laura O said...

some stunning cards quite a few are ones I liked a lot too,I'm going to guess at 1252 cards this year ,looking forward to seeing all the great creations this new year ,Laura O

June Smith said...

Hi Sue, sorry that I have not commented for a week or so, I have been away and the internet was playing up big time, so frustrating. I am loving all of the cards, I will keep pictures of them so that when I have time I can have a play.

Stay safe, healthy and happy New Year to you all. hugs, June Smith xxx

Lesley Griffiths said...

Oh what a lovely bunch of your creations! If I had to choose one it would have to be the Enjoy card with the black background and multi coloured flowers. I've done my own version of this one several times this year and it looks delightful. Thank you so much for your inspirational designs. How many cards? Well I'd think about 950. Hope you have a happy and healthy new year.

Happy days,

Txcowgirl said...

Hi Sue, I can see why these are your favorites, every one of them is a work of art.

Hello everyone, I've been scanning the post trying to catch up, the holidays this year were very different for us as a family. Greg's chemo has not worked, so they start something else tomorrow. My daughter, Tanya, his wife, is coping as best as she can with 5 kids, which she homeschools, and Greg's situation. He has always been the rock in their relationship, his calm demeanor keeping her from being frantic in stressful times. Thank God for her faith as I think it is all which is holding her together right now. She is just so heavy hearted, and as a mom it's so hard to see and not know how to alleviate her pain. Lovely folks, like ya'll, are praying all over the world, so we hold on to this hope.
Some good news, our youngest daughter in CA, Ashley, is expecting. Please pray for her also, as she has had 3 miscarriages, and so desperately they want a baby. So many things to think about and pray about.

On another note, I absolutely love the card Sue made called Staggered Square Checker, on what you in England call boxing day. (BTW, why do you call the day after Christmas this?) I have watched her video 4 or 5 times, trying to figure out how she makes the grid. Have any of you done this? It's the very first thing you do, and I know she somehow uses the two small cutting outside squares. Do you have a single piece of cardstock, then cut a grid of squares which you tape or glue to the solid piece? Then you take just the decorative square insert and diecut every other square? I hope I am making sense and someone can explain further.

God bless you all for a wonderful 2016.

It's very hard to choice a fav card as they are all so beautiful but the one that stands out for me is your tiled one which must of taken you ages to make.
Take care
