Beautiful card Sue.
Congratulations on your show last night, I had to watch on my iPad but it behaved itself. You looked so well and gorgeous, as did your demos.
Congrats also to Denise too.
Thank you ladies for my birthday wishes, I did have a lovely day, you are a smashing bunch, as the saying goes if you were flowers I'd pick all of you. To those who commented, I'm awake every morning at 4, can't seem to sleep past then even on my birthday.
I hope Hannah had a lovely day also.
Daily hugs to all, in pain or sad, especially Melody, Molly, Tracey, Tina.

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Well done Denise, a truely stunning card to win and frame for the wall - enjoy the stunning beauty we all raved about. Congratulations.

Good morning Sue. How lovely you looked last night, and the demo you did with gold white and black card was absolutely gorgeous, I love the enthusiasm that Alex show's I think you've made her into an addicted crafter lol.

Today's card is so plain but so pretty and delicate what with the favourite pastel aqua and the edger used to make the background, you make it look so 'simples' as those little meerkats would say 😊

Hope you have a lovely day today, I shall watching you demo the dies that go towards giving me a reason to craft when I feel well enough - thank you xxx

Great card, Sue, and clever use of the die - all so symmetrical!
Sadly had to give up watching as 5 seconds on and 2 off on static, ad infinitum. However, as has been said - you looked really lovely and with your perfectly matching necklace too.
Well done to Denise T on the card win.

Pretty card Sue. Will watch your show later as I recorded it when transmitted at night. Bother Hochanda!

Rose in Chester said...

Hi Sue,
Lovely card, and one which makes me say "Now why didn't I think of that?", the way you've used the dies is nothing less of inspirational. Colours are lovely, too. Your videos make it easy to understand the construction, with good tips on die cutting and embossing.
Shall be glued to my tablet today, YIPPEEE...........
Hugs, Rose

Chris Curry said...

What a great way to use the meridian die, love the card and the colours you have used. The heraldic square is so very versatile and useful. I watched your show yesterday on my iPad without a problem, looking forward to today's shows. Thank you Sue. Xx

Sue MacFall said...

Lovely card, Sue. Thank you for that. Will miss all your shows as I have visitors and only freeview which is off, so can't record them. Boo Hoo - roll on May !!!

Izzy said...

Hi Sue,

A clean and simple classic - I especially like the double pin-pricked frame around the sentiment...this design would be perfect for male or female...

Congrats to Denise...


Diane said...

Hi Sue
What a beautiful card today, I do like your recessed cards, they add a touch of interest. I will be playing catch up with last nights shows but hope to remember to record today's as we desperately need to make use of the sunny weather and do some gardening! I hope you have a lovely day today at hochanda, they seem such a friendly bunch.
Take care
Love Diane G xxx

Congratulations Denise on winning the card xxxx

Hi Sue - I thoroughly enjoyed last night's show on my computer but am out most of today so hope to be able to record any shows throughout the night. Such a shame Hochanda isn't available during the day at the moment. Today's card is so neat and I love the pretty colour. Have a great day today, best wishes

Beautiful technique and lovely colour

Elizabeth Beal said...

Hi Sue & lovely Wilsonettes***before I begin describing your superb creation today Sue I wanted to wish you all the best for a thoroughly pleasurable day with your shows, sadly I cannot be with you to enjoy your brilliant & informative demos simply because my computer/IPad will again not conform, too much buffering etc even in the catch-up, I even set freeview to record shows in the early hours just in case but zilch. Oh well you can’t say that I haven’t tried short of dashing out to purchase a sat dish & free sat, was tempted as can be done for around £100 but I think the tug of using said money at AP won hands down without a second thought* lol.*For those of you happy go lucky crafters who get to watch our lovely Sue today I hope you enjoy & maybe you can share a hint or two, with us poor lost souls, when you comment*lol* I shall commiserate by creating receptacles for the cards I have recently made, all from SW/CE products. What better way to keep my mind engaged than to pay tribute you Sue for all your hard work & inspiration & encouragement x x x

Back to your superb creation Sue, thank you for sharing with us & for your very enlightening video, an impressive card that would be so ideally perfect for posting to that someone special. I particularly love the exquisite aperture created with the Heraldic Square. I totally agree with Rose as I often say to myself, when I watch your videos or demos, “Why didn’t I think of that?” I know why, it is as plain as the nose on my face, you are the inspiration Sue, the one who motivates us, you are the one with the brainwaves of brilliant ideas x x x

PAM* lovely to know you enjoyed your birthday, as in my comment last night HANNAH enjoyed a lovely 3rd Birthday too, Thank You x x x I’ve pasted a copy of my comment from last night*** ‘It was so funny because we videoed Hannah & Lauren opening the birthday presents this morning (Frid), but when we went to play it back it wasn’t playing at normal speed, it was more like a 100 miles an hour, I never knew we could all move so fast, (I wish) turns out it was accidentally recorded on ‘time lapse’ on the IPad & we cannot slow it down...Doh*lol* Sorry my friends, with all the excitement of Sue’s impending shows I forgot to mention that the meeting with the dog sitter has been postponed until Monday 4th, I really felt for the sitter when she phoned to say she was poorly with bad cold as she sounded so awful, hopefully she will feel well enough for Monday’s visit*I’ll let you know.

LAINE* Lauren is doing well thank you, I was particularly watchful during the excitement of Hannah’s birthday yesterday by making sure she, and I,got plenty of rest in between activity but I’m pleased to say that she coped rather well. X x x

As for the MDF unit, thankfully 2nd time around there was no sneezing & no glue on my face; sorry to disappoint you all but it all went rather smoothly, mind you the debacle with Hannah’s 100 mile an hour video should give you all a chuckle or two.

Congratulations ‘Denise T’ on becoming the very proud owner of Sue’s beautiful giveaway card, I’m really pleased for you x x x

Have a lovely day Sue, albeit tiring, & I send Love ‘n’ (((HUGS))) to you, to my Special friends & to all Wilsonettes & your adorable pets, & especially to our absent friends. Beth B x x x x x

Ps I hope my friends that you would let me know if my rather extensive comments were a bit too much for you, I do get carried away sometimes, okay most times*lol* as writing comes to me so easily yet speaking I cannot find the words so easily x x x

BridgetCG said...

Hello Sue, this card is really lovely, great layout. Will have to watch the video later and catch up with the shows recorded. Well done Denise on winning the card. Have a great day all. Bx

Nannieflash said...

Good Morning Sue on a wet morning, and I did enjoy your Hochanda program last night and even watched it again this morning. You really are so talented and its a joy to watch and learn even new ways of playing with the dies. Todays card is just gorgeous and the colour choice is fabulous.
By the way my hubby also loves the meercats he has it as his ringtone on his mobile of Alexander talking, so you two have a lot in common.
Hugs Shirleyxxxx
Looking forward to watching the other demos now.

Pearl said...

Love the card today Sue, the recessed idea is so good and doesn't look that difficult to do when you explain it.

Just discovered that I can watch Hochanda on Sky - if I can get to it when my hubby isn't watching it for anything. Freeview is the best method for me so can't wait until it is back in May.

Thank you for the card today Sue.

Lots of love and craftihappiness everyone,

Sorry Teresa W, noticed rather late that you made a comment yesterday about missing the shows, I assume you live in Kettering. I have yet to catch up on today's shows but will keep them if you want to come and watch. I am not sure how you contact someone via the blogger but am trying something that might allow you to contact me

Hi Sue, I've been so busy watching your shows I forgot to comment! Love this card, it is really pretty. I will watch the video later when you are no longer on my TV because I want to see if I can re-create the card with other dies.

Denise T - Congratulations on being the Wednesday Winner, enjoy your lovely card.


laura ann kempster said...

Hello Sue,

What a lovely design - I think I've already got this die in my stash so I may have to have a play later on and draw on this for inspiration. Thank you!

Hi Sue
I love the card (will have to watch the video later!).
I am enjoying watching your shows with all your great demos and beautiful samples.
Looking forward to the 7pm show.

Gillyflower said...

Another great card Sue! I have enjoyed your shows, (only 1 more to go, unfortunately) and I even plucked up the courage to send in a photo of the card that I made for my husband. He was there when it came up on the screen - it included a photo of him when he was 15 years old, and wearing his Navy Sea Cadet's uniform. He was really chuffed! Hugs Gilly, x

Hi Sue
A stunning card.
Enjoying the shows today and there are some beautiful samples being shown and demonstrated.

Lorraine Eastwood said...

Good evening lovely a sue and her crafty crew!

I must confess that I haven't gotten round to watching your demo for today, instead, I have spent a blissful, uninterrupted afternoon.....apart from Darcey scratching the furniture for attention and some food.....catching up on all of your shows thus far. Can I just say that you look positively radiant, I love your colourful cardigan, red is a favourite of mine and it really suits you. I can't believe you would be nervous because it never shows in your performances, which are always polished and professional, yet warm and inventive....I would be a positive train wreck in your position:-) Hochanda have came on leaps and bounds since the early days of transmission, you must have noticed an improvement- Alex is a lovely presenter, so enthusiastic about the guests and products, plus she gave you ample time to demonstrate:-)
Well, did I manage to persuade my Mum to give me the credit card?Hell yeah! In fact, it was me who decided to sleep on it first before I rushed in with a purchase....restraint or what?....I couldn't quite stretch to all three die package deals so I had to decide which I needed more. I eventually plumped for the Happy collection, the Finishing Touches collection and the pinpoint EF and I will build up the Australian Collection bit by bit:-)
Feeling strangely tired this evening, maybe it is the dismal rain pounding the pavements outside but I could quite gratefully go to sleep right now. No chance though, I will prop my eyes open with matchsticks in an effort to watch Sues last show....what good news that she will be back in a couple of weeks to show part two of the collection.....don't think my purse strings will stretch on that occasion though:-(
Congrats to Denise on your fortuitous win, enjoyxxx
Belated birthday wishes to Pam, I forgot to mention it yesterday in my excitement at Sues appearance, glad you had a nice dayxxx
Beth, how encouraging to hear about Lauren's exploits with the birthday girl Hannah, sometimes having a younger sibling can keep our elderly companions going for longer than expected...our Gizmo lasted until he was over17 with the 'help' of Brodie's exuberance:-)
I bet you're getting super excited about next weekend, give Sue a hug from me and warn her of my intention to accost her in September...she may want to get that taser gun just in case:-)
Cuddles to Alison, Linda, Lorraine, Maria, Theresa, Rebecca, Tracy, Lynda, Jan, P, melody and anyone in need of a hugxxxx
Special hugs to my buddy Yvonne who is rather under the weather at the minute, get well soon honey....and Wheely bad, I'm assuming that you are suffering from the dreaded migraines and can't comment, hope you are back with us soonxxxx

Crafty hugs

Tres said...

Hi Sue. WOW !!! This card is just gorgeous !!! I Love, love, love it all !!! I really did not think I needed the Meridian Lace Edger Die set but seeing this amazing card is fast changing my mind !!! I have a massive wish list for Alley Palley but sadly not the funds to match !!! It will have to be a day of tough decision making which sadly is NOT one of my strong points !!! I really love the colour combo you have used on this card and I have really loved your Heraldic Square Dies, ever since you first released them. ( Yet another gorgeous die set on my huge wish list !!! ) The card looks fab, the way you have recessed the centre layer and then raised a frame up around it. I think this is such a great look and it makes it look very professional and very clever. A real Sue Wilson style original.
I managed to see all your shows on Hochanda even though we only have freeview and Hochanda has stopped everything for a while on freeview. Hubby dragged down our old sky box from the loft, plugged it in and it still worked !!! More importantly giving us some extra free channels including Hochanda. I could not record your shows but at least I got to see them all. I have to say you were fantastic Sue !!! I thoroughly enjoyed everything I saw but I have a cheeky request. Please, please, please could you put your gorgeous SMILE card on your blog. I missed all the measurements that were read out but I really loved your fab stepper card and I would love to have a go at making my own version. It is so beautiful, and just something a bit different as I have never attempted to make one before. I would really appreciate it Sue.
I want to say a big thank you to you Sue for all your fab cards and amazing shows this weekend and throughout the week as I have missed a couple of days comments. Thankyou for today's gorgeous card to. X x x
Sending lots of love and hugs to you Sue from Tres x x x

Sending love to everyone from Tres x x x

Ooh I absolutely love this one and I have those dies too, well apart from the noble squares.
I love that colour and yet again you have given me inspiration for a 90th birthday card need to do.

Beautiful card!!! And using my favorite color. I was wondering what the difference between set A & B is?
