Thank you

 Hello bloggers!  Today's card is just the sort of card I love to make!  I selected a neutral colour palette with milk, taupe and mocha card.  I started by cutting the Australian Background out of milk card.  I backed it with taupe card, then added a mocha mat to it.  Next I cut the Lauren die in milk card and backed it with mocha card.  I used the oval die from the set to cut it into a frame and raised it by adding mounting foam. I added a thin frame around the opening using the two oval dies in the Lauren set.   I stamped my sentiment and seated the frame over it then mounted it in the middle of the background.  Using the Perfect Peonies complete petal die set, I created three dimensional flowers out of milk card, then "sugared" them with Iced Snow.  I added them to opposite corners and seated them with satin ribbon and the leaves from the Blushing Rose die set which I cut out of taupe card.  I added a pierced milk mat, a thin taupe and mocha mat and a final milk mat to complete the card.  The finished dimensions are 6 1/2" x  8 1/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Elizabeth Beal said...

Hi Sue & lovely Wilsonettes*** oh oh oh!!!, how many times can a girl be knocked off the edge of her seat, gasping for breath, when yet another enchanted wonder appeared before her very eyes. Sue you have done yourself almighty proud with this stunning & spectacular gem & the ‘Thank You’ sentiment is right back at you Sue, especially from my darling four paws Lauren. The colours go charmingly together & the Australian background sets the ‘Lauren’ die off a treat. Thank you immensely for sharing such a delightful surprise with us Sue, you know that your daily gift is always gratefully received x x x x x

Apologies for my absence, but it seems that all I have done lately is blitz the house from top to bottom, several times, in a cleaning frenzy, only for the visitors to not arrive or they have had to cancel, I don’t mind but I think my brain & my body just said right that’s enough we’re going into meltdown, hence the inevitable ME kicked in big time. I tried to fight it but my thoughts gave fair reasoning by hinting ‘you want to go to AP on Sat’ don’t you? Well who could argue with that, but that is the other part of the story.

AP disappointingly almost never came off for me because although the dog sitters were officially booked they have a beautiful dog that needed urgent tests this week at Animal Health Trust in Newmarket, (sorry, I don’t think it would be appropriate to go into detail) so it’s fair to say that it didn’t matter what I wanted or how I felt about the possibility of not going to AP their little girl, above all else, had to come first. But imagine my delightful surprise when our lovely dog sitter confirmed later yesterday that she will be sitting with the girls after all. Needless to say in one breath I just wanted to give her little four paws lots of cuddles & well wishes but at the same time I felt happy & excited about going to AP...I truly pray that this doesn’t make me appear to be selfish?

Well my friends, in September last year I was wishing you all a pleasant journey to AP & to enjoy the perfect day, now I wish you a the same for tomorrow but with the added bonus of my joining you in making the same journey, so I may not be able to comment tomorrow until late as leaving at 7.30 & sitter is due here at 7am.

Sue I sincerely pray that you have a pleasant journey to AP today? & I wish you fun, laughs & every success over the weekend x x x

I must go my friends as things to do (unhurriedly of course) please take care of yourselves & my thoughts go out to those lovely ladies who are going through a sad or poorly time...(((HUGS))) to one & all & especially to you Sue Love Beth B x x x x x

Norah McPhee said...

Good morning Sue and the Wilsonettes,
Oh Sue this card today is a stunner both in colours and in design. Oh how i wish i had these dies to replicate todays beauty but hey ho the wish/need list is getting longer. The Lauren die has been at the top of the need list since you first showed it and it has never failed to wow me whenever you have used it. Thank you flower for a stunning card that is so pretty and could be for a lot of different needs.
I went swimming last night but having said that i kept going under to examine the pool tiles and that was me using a swim noodle that is suppose to keep you upright in the water, well it failed that one. What it did do was remind me of the time i took Kirsten out of school one day early to take her swimming, i just forgot to tell her somehow that it wouldn't be in this country, hee hee hee. I worked at Thomas Cook at the time and every year we got a discount holiday cheap but you had to go within 48 hours. Because i worked 4 days on and 4 off i had 12 days off with my holiday hours so said to Mum how did she fancy going on holiday with me and the children. My only snag came when Rory's passport that i had done through the post office on the 10 day work around didn't come in until after we were due to leave so Campbell had to take the week off to look after him. I got all our clothes into a case along with Mum's and away down to Newcastle we went on the train and metro that took us out to the airport. The look on Kirstens face when she seen that we were going on holiday was a picture and she has never forgotten it. Well i did't tell any lies did i, i just didn't tell her that the swimming was in another country and not here.
Have a good day everyone with hugs being sent to all the Wilsonettes that need them
love and crafty hugs

Hi Sue, really beautiful and I absolutely love this card and the colours you have used. Sadly I don't have the Lauren die but the Australian background is my current favourite for its versatility. Thrilled to say that I have at last managed to get the Cathedral Background die and the Lattice Window striplet - both are gorgeous - as is your paper pad to which I also treated myself seeing as I have been so good lately lol.

I hope everyone going to Ally Pally at the week-end has a lovely time and manages to get to see Sue, that is if you can find her as she will no doubt be surrounded knee deep by Wilsonettes :-)

Lorraine Eastwood said...

good evening lovely sue and her crafty crew,

What an absolutely stunning creation that greeted me on the blog today, you have really excelled yourself Sue and shown us the myriad of possibilities your dies provide us with. i love the cookies n cream colour palette, one of my favourites, it gives a rich, opulent feel that is simply scrumptious....in fact, i would go so far as to state that i would indeed much prefer this card to numerous bars of my favourite chocolate;-)
i am fortunate enough to have all of the dies included apart from the Aussie background which is at the top of my ever changing wish list. i adore your sugared flowers, they add the perfect finishing touch and a real element of class and sophistication, it wouldn't be a Sue card without them. Thank you for yet more fabulous inspirationxxxx
Apologies for my lengthy absence, i wish that i could say that i had been on a secluded island in the Maldives with George Clooney...minus his wife!....but the truth is rather more mundane, i had a humdinger of a migraine and using the i pad was a no no unfortunately. So, I've been having severe withdrawel symptoms as a result characterised by agitation, sweating and shaking that can only be relieved by looking at a Sue masterpiece, watching her demo, or buying one of her dies....or preferably all three! I've managed two already today but buying more dies will have to wait because I've only just spent a small fortune on Hochanda and want to persuade my Mum next week that the New Zealand collection NEEDS to be in my life:-)
like many of you, i had a sneaky peek at the new release and i am suitably awestruck. there are some intriguing concepts not to mention some old favourites and i am paraletic with excitement.
i really wish that i could join all the lucky Wilsonettes on their way to Ally Pally to meet our great leader but sadly it was not to be this time but i do have aspirations to get there in September so it gives Sue plenty of time to practise her best kick boxing move, buy that pepper spray and employ a burly minder just in case i lose control of myself:-)
I hope you all enjoy yourself immensely, especially Sue, and i will be watching on Hochanda content that I'm getting a little piece of the action.
hugs to Yvonne, Beth, Linda, Tracy, Rebecca, Maria, Theresa, P, Pam, Lorraine, Lynda, Alison,Wheely Bad and all our furry four pawsxxxx

Stunning card. I love using the Australian Background die but don't have the Lauren or the peonies.
Hope everyone going to Ally Pally has a wonderful day.
Take care everyone.
