Beautiful wedding card Sue. The shadow box dies make really unique cards for the happy couple.

Congrats to Crewe Trish for winning the card.

My daughter's surgery went as expected. The surgeon specialises in keyhole gall bladder removal, it took less than 40 mins. I just need to make sure she rests and doesn't try to do anything strenuous.

Have a lovely weekend all.

Well I've just looked back at your cards over the last week and they are all gorgeous.
Love today's especially with the Birthday elements. I've just had my left hip replaced so hadn't been up to looking in I'm afraid. Will look back later to take all the cards in in more detail.

Norah McPhee said...

Good afternoon Sue and the Wilsonettes,
What a beautiful card that surely any bride and groom would love and feel so special at someone making this for them. The white with the silver looks lovely especially if you know that it is white gold or platinum bands they will be wearing or may be that is just me being just over the top in particulars, but i do like to match a wedding card colours up to the special option that they have went for. For an ivory or cream wedding dress it is quite often gold that they have as their bands so i make the card gold and ivory or cream whatever suits. THank you Sue for a beautiful card that gives so much inspiration to us.
Crewe Trish, well done flower, i hope that you enjoy your beautiful card when it arrives and has pride of place.
Oh Pat S, i hope that the main pain has now gone and you can get on with recovering. When you get a new hip they say it gives you a whole new lease of life and i hope that it does for you flower. Sending you hugs to keep you going flower and i hope that you are having more good days than bad.
Happy belated birthday to Andrew and his wife, i hope you both had a lovely time out together. Tina, i'm sorry that Mick is not getting his pain sorted out but hugs are on their way to you both. Annie, you will be relieved that your daughter is through her surgery and recovering but she needs to have mum tell her that she needs the recovering bit to get back to health. And Tracy hugs are on their way to you as well flower,
love and crafty hugs
Norah (Glenochil)

Hi Sue
Beautiful card, I have the lattice set and the birthday shadow box but not yet used them together, going up try and watch video while Mick us laid watching TV
Congratulations Trish on winning card
Another fantastic day of eating I have told him I know you need to gain weight but you don't have to do it all in one week ha ha, had a very good night but had a lot of spasms and pain on/off all day had a sit in his chair for just over 4 hours so he's now laid down, it is heartbreaking watching him suffer and not be able to do anything he's watching TV awaiting carers to get him ready for bed
Thank you for all the hugs, well wishes and kindness it keeps me going through all the tough times
Happy crafting
Love and huge hugs to you all
Love Tina xxxx
