Smile Repeatedly

Hi crafters!  Want a really quick card that still has the wow factor?  Look no further than the Perspectives range of dies.  The Smile die might be just what you need to cheer up a friend or just let someone know that you are thinking of them!

 The finished dimensions are 7" x  9 1/2" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Daily hugs to Tracey, Melody, and all who are not well or sad.

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Morning Sue. How lovely to wake up with a smile (although I've been up since 4.30) and the door to Particraft doesn't unlock till 6am, it's still lovely to see this happy card first thing. This is what I meant when complimenting you on your new sentiment babies last week, we no longer have the worry about making cards for the men, so many colour changes would turn this into a card for the male species that cause us problems card wise - hey Sue, 💡 moment... how about some male type accessories for the shadow boxes ? Cars, tools, DIY, sports etc ? Anyway I've gone off track I do apologize, it's your fault though, with all these sentiment word dies both last collection and this, you seem to have woken my Muppet brain up for so many male orientated cards and that's a first - my male birthday section in my market basket over floweth lol - thank you 😊

This smile comes back to you Sue, and for Sam, TOB and friends made on fb. Thank you for starting my day with a smile xxx

Sandy G said...

Hi Sue
This is something a little bit different! I agree it would make great male cards using different colours and maybe minus the bling! Word dies are so versatile especially when you can use the negative as well. Thank you for sharing.
Have a great day everyone.

Happy card, Sue, made with your special absolute perfection in placement! This is the sort (for me) when all is going well and I fall at the last hurdle with a wonky alignment. Really like it and thank you for the video.

Norah - wow, have a great time and most importantly it's for.... you!

Pat L said...

Hi Sue
Brilliant card and great video as always. Your perspective dies are magic and I might try this with the new triple happy birthday die. Can I ask is there a way to cut a complete Happy Couple to back the die, as I am useless at fussy cutting and her beautiful dress definitely needs a backing?

Hugs and best wishes everyone

Norah McPhee said...

Good morning Sue and the Wilsonettes,
This is what i need to make for my husband as it might just encourage him to do it once in a while. This is a great card Sue and although i didn't think that the perspective range was for me this card would make me want to buy it. I do like the softness of the CE pink card and it isn't too sugary a pink but a beautiful subtle shade and well pink and gray have always went together in my mind and it hasn't changed any. The gray card for me has been a bit on the strong side but it is just perfect with this pink. Thank you Sue for another WOW that is a very subtle sparkle card.
Well girls and boys, i'm here waiting on my lovely friends coming and so looking forward to it, i feel like a child again waiting for Santa to come. It's a beautiful day up here at the Ochils and i have given my lovely boy all his instructions for while i am away. I have knitting in tow so i am all set, so i will wish you all a happy day hopefully and hugs to all my Wilsonette friends old and new that need them, want them or could just be doing with them, you are welcome,
Love and crafty hugs
Norah (Glenochil Village)

Elizabeth Beal said...

Hi Sue & Lovely Wilsonettes*

I’m ‘SMILING’ right at you Sue, thank you for sharing this delightful card with us. Simple, quick & easy, yes, but with such a pleasing bold statement that would bring a ray of sunshine to any recipient of this beauty. Love how this unique die brings you full use with positive & negative & used as running words on background, with no waste, that is an absolute genius idea Sue & to have plaques to use on the Smile letters brought yet another delighted gasp...I truly appreciate this pretty card & the video, thank you for sharing both x x x

You are in thoughts & prayers each day*TXCOWGIRL, MELODY-MOLLY, TINA E x x x

TRACEY, WHEELYBAD, MAGPIE, LORRAINE F, LYNDA & ANNIE x x x hope all is going well for you* THERESA W, sorry to hear you have Chickenpox, I’ve never had them so I’ll keep my distance if that’s ok; Lol hope you recover well from this x x x

MURIEL* lovely to hear your having a lovely time with family; NORAH M* wishing you a lovely day with your friends & hope you enjoy all the excitement & the joys of feeling like a big kid again; lol x x x

JUNE S* lovely to hear you are back home & all went well, glad you were able to return in time to catch up on Sue’s fabulous new launch, sending (((Hugs))) to you & hope your recovery is going well x x x

LAINE* gosh my friend; I really do feel for you, I shouldn’t think there are many of us who actually like going to the dentist & will generally put off going for as long as we can, gentle (((hugs))) for you my friend & hope that the meds kick in soon & start the healing process for you & of course resting is all part of that.
We become the responsible carers to our lovely pets Laine, so it is natural for us to do the worrying simply because unlike a child our fur babies cannot tell us what the problem is or always what they want or need in life, we have to guess & that is a sure fire way to worry more than we need to, but just think how nice it will be to have your smoothies & glitter all to yourself; lol...take care x x x

Take care my friends, love ‘n’ (((hugs))) Sue, dear friends, absent friends & Wilsonettes, Beth B x x x x x

Two days two completely different cards how do you manage it haven't had a chance yet to see the video. Tuesday is usually a manic day for me. Grandaughters arrive, breakfast, school run, took my mum shopping she's 98 then did a few jobs she needed doing. I am sitting here with a sandwich reading all your comments before trying to come up with something healthy for a 5year and 9year olds tea before beginning the school run again. I hope everybody is having a lovely day.

Wheely Bad said...

Hi Sue

After reading the email subject line I did have a little chuckle when I saw the card and yes, smiling repeatedly is a good thing to do. This is one of those "cards for many recipients" designs- all ages, sexes etc. I agree with Steph- thanks to seeing your new range my man card ideas have suddenly increased ten fold! Now I just have to decide, do I buy the pretty ones that I need "just because" or the ones that will solve the man card woes... Decisions, decisions!

Have a lovely day Sue, hugs from myself and Billy xxx

Thinking of Tina E, Molly, Melody and family, TxCowgirl and family xxx

June, so glad the op was a success and I hope any discomfort is short lived, big hugs xxx

Theresa, get well soon, chicken pox isn't nice even if it's mild. Big hugs xxx

Laine, if its not one thing... I hope the dentist is gentle on you and can cure the problem without getting the power tools out! Big hugs xxx

Norah, enjoy your trip to Carlisle with your friends, big hugs xxx

Lorraine, I hope you don't suffer long term for forgetting to take your meds, hope you feel up to some crafting to make you feel better, big hugs xxx

Lynda, Billy sends wags and woofs to you and your crafty pets, big hugs from me xxx

Beth B, Tracy, big hugs xxx

Got tired out yesterday, I descaled the kettle and unpacked my new jug water filter (I know how to spoil myself!). Once I'd done all the tasks that were needed I was able to have the kettle on in time for Mr W's return from work. After sitting up being active I got a spasm from my right shoulder blade down to my knee. Another example of me not even thinking about pacing myself (d'oh!) was asleep just after 8pm, Billy woke me up at 12:30am with his paws crossed! Once he was sorted I was asleep again and woke at 9:30am to him barking at the courier leaving a parcel for my neighbour. I'm OK, just sore and still tired, glad I visited now as didn't want to miss a second day. Off for some lunch and a little sleep, just to tide me over!

Sending hugs and happy thoughts to everyone, have extra hugs for anyone who needs them. Enjoy the rest of the day,

Beautiful card Sue!
I love the perspective dies, they are so unique and like no other dies out there. I must admit I love it when you amaze us with a total change of style in your cards and just for a minute you have us thinking we are on the wrong site.

Went out today in the wheelchair but my son got a bit too enthusiastic and was speeding around and I ended up feeling queasy. Anyway I still managed to go to messy adults tonight which meant I spent time with my bestie. Oh and we did decopatch so I did craft after all.

Well how lucky am I, I have had such a lovely day full of lots of laughter and many smiles and the lovely Norah, oh and a few other friends, it has been well worth the flight bus and train journeys to meet up with everyone - I don't think we've stopped chatting and laughing!

Evening Sue
I am loving these perspective dies and this card is wonderful. Have not watched the video yet - quite a busy day.
I think these dies are going to be so useful and make such brilliant cards ranging from very clean and simple to incredibly decorative. They are all on my wish list - smile being the one I need to get first.
I am really hoping that you will be bringing us more dies in this range x
I had hoped to comment much earlier but my neighbour Marjorie - who had a stroke earlier this year, came up to see me and had a cuppa. She is absolutely remarkable. She is in her 90's and I am completely in awe of how well she is doing. I was not expecting her and was really surprised to see her when I opened the door. Anyway she came in for what she said was going to be a quick cuppa and 2 hours later we were still chatting. She is incredibly frustrated as she is not able to get out and has always been incredibly active so is bored. I think that's why she stayed quite a while - she was grateful for the company. I have promised that I will catch up with her once a week at least - as long as we are both up to it.
I had promised to call my mum this afternoon - she had an operation last week and has her arm in a splint and out of use for 4-6 weeks. I had to delay the call til this evening and we ended up chatting for ages. So, I have had a busy day talking but it was so lovely to see Marjorie.
I am off to bed now - apologies for not reading your comments but hopefully I will get a chance to do that tomorrow.
Sending hugs to everyone especially those who are feeling under the weather

Lovely, quick card that has put a smile on so many faces today. Your Perspective dies are so useful. I didn't get a chance to comment yesterday as I suddenly realised I had to make a card to catch the post. Yesterday's card was a beauty.
Take care everyone.

Love this card Sue. I have this die and have used it several times. Wasn't sure at first until I saw a card at Ally Pally you had made. Thank you for the video. Wondered how you had made it. Must try that idea now.

Nicely done. Have to admit these dies are not my favorite, cuz I just love the intricate ones. However, sure see a place for them. Simple and for a variety of people and occasions!
