Stunning card Sue, love it.
Laine, my heart breaks for you, you are all in limbo at the moment. As regards the card, if it relates to your dad, go for colours or flowers that he liked and it will always be right.
Daily hugs to Sue, Melody, Francis, Laine, Tracey, hope you are okay honey.
Hugs all round

Morning Sue, I loved watching you show this technique, and how wonderful does it look, a fabulous card, I love shabby chic.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Anonymous said...

Not so shabby, Sue, and certainly very chic! Exquisite, in fact - so pretty and a real 'Sue' card, nice new technique with the wax crayon and love the floral embellishment and pins. You're right, avoid sagging at any cost! Great video as ever, thank you.

Sylvia Yates said...

A beautiful card today Sue. Love the way these dies work together. Thank you for sharing. Have a great day everybody
Hugs Sylvia xx

Tressa said...

And I went and threw away my waxed crayons recently as my nephew is well over the age of wanting to use them!! How could I have foreseen that the white one could be so useful?

An interesting technique that has gone towards producing a beautiful card. The colour cloud comes up pink on my iPad but I will assume it is far more subtle that in real life. Certainly one for the stash I think.

Diane said...

Hi Sue
What a pretty card today and a different technique, who would have thought the white crayon could add such a dimention. I had to smile when you were feeling the embossing folder to find the right side, I often find myself doing that too , do you think you could get somerhing printed on one side for a quick reference. I eventually get round to writing on mine but until that point I'm having to feel. Sorry to be a pain but I know you like feedback!
Take care
Love Diane G xxx

Tracey sorry I had to chuckle about your card - you and your friend will have a good laugh about it for years to come, that's good friends for you and at the moment you are allowed! Xxx

Hi Sue,
I am loving all things shabby chic at the moment so I will be giving this technique a go, it is just so effective,who would have thought that something so pretty would've achieved with a little old crayon!!

alimecca said...

Hi Sue,
Another beauty for us today. Just about to watch video but I'm sure it will be brilliant as usual!
Laine and Frances - thanks for asking about Scamp. She seems to be moving easier and has actually settled to cage confinement really well bless her. One of us is always in with her ( usually me) so she's very settled. It's probably easier for her because she's an indoor cat. I think she's agraphobic! She quite likes the idea of going out but is terrified when she's outside and just wants to get back inside! We go back to the vets on Thursday so we'll see then how she's doing. XXXX
Tracy - I did have a chuckle about the card, doe that a few times myself! Xx
Laine - sorry you're having trouble getting the funeral organised, hope things get sorted soon xxx
Love and hugs to all, Alison xxxx

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, this card is certainly not shabby but is most definitely tres chic! I love everything about it especially the frosted flower and butterfly. What a shame that I didn't have time to watch the video before going out earlier, I was in at least two shops where I could have bought some reasonably priced crayons. Trying the technique will have to wait until I can go shopping again :(

Janice K - Happy Anniversary! Hope you and OH are having a lovely day.

Frances

fluffycat said...

Alison - we must have been typing at the same time:) So pleased Scamp is doing well, I'll be thinking of you both on Thursday.

lorraine (classylady) said...

Beautiful card Sue I always mean to try die cutting into the sheet rather than using the die the other way round. Sue your cards are so crisp clean and sharp looking, mine always seem muddy but usually I do messy, so perhaps I can you that as my excuse

Hugs to you and yours

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Hi Sue.
Absolutely beautiful. Everything about it is just gorgeous. I feel I need that colour in my inky collection. It's been a while since I've done any resisting especially the strawberries and cream Lindt chocolates lol !
If only it took foam tape to stop the sag, at my age I'd be covered from head to toe in the bloomin stuff !
Sending my usual hugs to you Sue and to Sam and TOB.
