Gorgeous card, love it
Congratulations to Marion, enjoy your beautiful card.
Sandy G it is Jisephs walking staff above Mary's head.
Tina, glad Mick is doing well but you just sort the Carers out, you are doing their work but you still have to pay for their time. You need help not this.
Elaine, I hope Andrew is feeling better, I get low blood pressure with my heart problem, it knocks you for six. Glad you are getting your sleep, maybe the council have warned her that they are investigating. Sometimes that is all that is needed.
Kitty, my thoughts are with you.
Laine, I'm sorry to hear Yvonne's news about friends, it's so sad.
Hugs to all, especially Tracey and our missing friends.

June Smith said...

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, oh yes I like this one, going to watch the video in a minute, as got to get my blog comments done first, loving the colours used Sue.

Elaine I hope Andrew is feeling bit after his day in bed, it is always the way when we say they are getting better they have a little hic cup.

Tina and Mick, hugs hope all is well.

Yvonne, this is such a horrible thing to happen to your friend and her Mum, hopefully they will beat it.

I am sure I have forgotten someone, so sorry if I have. I do think of all our crafty friends and their problems, so sending lots of hugs to you all.

Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Hi Sue. You sure know how to start the day with a smile. This is so pretty it even makes your heart smile. Imagin opening a card as gorgeous as today's when you're celebrating a special occasion wouldn't it be the icing on the cake huh ?
Through all my discomfort and misery and self confessed feeling sorry for myself when I shouldn't have, your work brings me through again. It's always such a joy to visit Particraft, and the only way I can think of to say "thank you" is to be just one little number amongst the daily genuin friends you have gathered here each day.
Congratulations to Marion on joining the WWC - Wednesday Winners Club enjoy your special gift.
Have a lovely day Sue xx

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, a beautiful card for anyone. I love all the dies and the clever way you have used them. Karenlotty's description of a striplet in disguise is perfect! I think the Berne die has to go on my wish list as the pin points makes such a gorgeous frame.

Congratulations Marion Scott on being the Wednesday Winner, I am sure you will 'LOVE' your Sue special.

Laine - please let Yvonne know that I am thinking of her and her friends, that is a terrible double blow. Let's hope they are as brave as our Tracy and get through it together.

Hi Sue. What a very pretty card today's post is. Of course I am biased because I love blue and white. I particularly like the configuration of the central panel accented by the decoration on the sides.

Lorraine Freeman said...

Superb card today Sue, thanks for sharing.
Barbara, thank you so much for the hugs and prayers, much appreciated. I do not know how you cope with a four year old full time except you have to so you do. Hugs back.
So sorry to hear of Yvonne's awful news, sending love her way and healing vibes to her friends.
Laine, thanks but the extreme tiredness was the start of a flare. The pain radiated all through my body so I didn't do any of the things on my list. I am relegated to the sofa to ride it out. The pain is just so overwhelming. Sorry you had a seizure, I hope you are soon recovered my dear.
Tina, sorry the carers are not there when you need them. We don't want you worn out and then falling ill. Best wishes to Mick and hugs for you both.
Steph, you are poorly and it is only right to care for yourself. You are as important as anyone else, your pain is as real as anyone else's and when you are better that will be as much cause for celebration as anyone else's. Hugs
Jackie, have a wonderful time wedding dress shopping. I hope you have tissues at the ready.
Kitty, so glad you are finding each day a little brighter.
Elaine, glad Andrew is getting over his hiccup.
Hubby has been to the bank and got things sorted, the lady there made a mistake so all should be right in a few days. Shame he lost the letter with the account details and our address on. Fingers crossed no one dodgy finds it.
He wants to cook me a nice meal tonight but eating is hard when in a flare and all I fancy is praline ice cream.
Congratulations to Marion.
Love n hugs to all xxx

Anonymous said...

Beautiful card, Sue, my screen shows blue and white, think I prefer that. Great video, as ever, thank you.
Laine - pls pass on hugs to Yvonne, what a dreadful thing for mother and daughter. They must try to be as brave as our Tracy.
Hugs to all.

Splendid card with a lovely color combination. Enjoyed your video. Thanks for the video and the tip about glittering the sentiment sticky sheet after adhering the sentiment to your card. Certainly makes sense to do so. I think the Ornamental Accent die framed this card perfectly.

Hello Sue
This is my sort of card it so beautiful. I did a little song and dance this morning I am now the very proud owner of a Sue Wilson original to say it is amazing is an understatement. congratulations to Marion this weeks winner. Barbara looking after a 4 year old is very tiring but you do it because you love her. Tina I hope you sort out your carer problem soon. Jackie how did the wedding shop go. Kitty glad to see you seem brighter today. Elaine so pleased Andrew is feeling a little better.
