Wednesday Weekly Card Giveaway

Hello crafters!  Today's card giveaway is a pretty wisteria coloured card which uses the Classic Elegance paper pad as a background.  I selected the purplish design from the pad to use as my background.  Next I cut two circle frames, one thick and larger and one thinner and smaller.  I added mounting foam to the backs of both of them.  Next I cut the Atlas Petite Striplet die in white five times.  I cut the all in half and attached them so they were evenly spaced with the full section of the striplet peeking out from behind the larger circle frame.  I used the smaller frame to cover and connect the cut edges on the inside of the frame.  I added the entire piece to the backing paper.  I stamped a sentiment and cut it out with the Pierced Flags die, then added it across the frames.  I made three poppies out of the backing paper and "sugared" them with Iced Snow.  I added two at the end of my sentiment strip with some pastel Bakers Twine and Olive Branches as accents.  The other flower was seated across the frame with smaller pieces of the Olive branch.  The card was completed with a simple white on white mat with piercing.  The finished dimensions are 7 3/4" x  7 3/4" in size.  Leave me a comment to be included in the drawing to win this card.  All for now, Sue x

Lovely card Sue, it's beautiful, the colour is gorgeous
Elaine, I hope Andrews appointment went wel yesterday, and that treatment can start soon.
Tina, it is going to be a long day for you both, it is such a long time for Mick to be sat in his wheelchair, let's hope common sense with the staff prevails.
Tracey, don't rush back to work if you are not ready, although some employers are not so sympathetic, and that can cause more stress.
Cheryl, it was so good to see you comment, I have been worried about you, hope you are okay.
Thank you ladies for your wishes yesterday, Trish I was 17 when mum died, the eldest if 6 and my baby sister was 13 months old, I think she would have loved card making, she was always knitting, sewing, really crafty.
Hugs to all, especially missing friends.

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, lovely give away card today Sue, although how you can bear to part with them I do not know, there is going to be one very happy winner when it is announced.

Well I am off to my craft club today, I will put the card I designed onto Sue's fb page in a minute, I made it for my son and dil 13th wedding anniversary (lace) today, it is also my granddaughters 15th birthday and the day that another of my granddaughters was stillborn so it is going to be a very up and down day today.

I was reading yesterdays comments this morning and am amazed at what a fantastic family of friends we have, I thank everyone for their kind wishes and thanks on my win (wish the postie would hurry up), anyway I digress...........

Tina and Mick, I hope the Neurologist appointment goes well today and that the staff realise how upsetting sitting in a wheelchair all day will be to him and therefore get him in and out as quickly as possible, then I know you have to wait for transport, I see all the stories in the media about the patient transport and my heart goes out to everyone although I think they may be getting their act together at last.

Tracy, if you have to get another sick note then so be it, I am sure your work understands, although I will say that when I was in your position I did find it aided my recovery to actually get back to work even on a part time basis.

Annie I am sure your daughter is pleased the stitches are out, there always seems to be one pesky one doesn't there, hopefully she will be able to drive again soon.

Elaine, hope Andrew's treatment went OK and you get some good news.

I know there are lot's more of you who need hugs so catch this one.

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

Hi Sue. Three mornings on the go you have raised an early morning smile on my face, I'm not sure if you are trying to convince us it's o.k. to use your paper pad but it won't work for me I'm afraid lol. Thank you for your Wednesday gift, and for extending the W.W.C (Wednesday Winners Club) your heart is bigger than you realise and I'd feel honoured if you would allow me just a tiny piece of your incredible designer brain as mine has withered up and dried out !
Sending Wednesday hugs to you xx

Another incredibly beautiful card! The poppies are stunning and the use of your beautiful paper is inspired. I have one of your paper pads (should have bought 2) and it's so beautiful that I have yet to be willing to use them. Please do another paper pad (I will definitely buy multiples this time so I can actually use them... LOL).

Diane Green said...

Hi Sue
What a glorious card today, really love the whisteria colour and the background papers. My local craft shop has often sold out of both when the come in so they are very popular. Love the poppies too. I wonder if they were just a pretty flower when you designed them and they have become your firm favourite or if you knew from the start they would be your go to flower. I'm being paid to bake some cakes this week so if I can find them I might indulge myself.
Take care
Love Diane G xxx

June sending you a big hug today as its full of emotions. Hope the postie arrives today, it would make your day. Xxx
Tina and Mick hope all goes well at the hospital and you aren't kept waiting long. Xxx

Hi Sue
Look at me. It is still light and here I am. This is turning on to be a bit of a busy week so routine (not that I have much of a routine), has gone out of the window.
This card is adorable. It is so beautiful and the elements gel together perfectly. I am more than happy to give this card a home. Thanks Sue x
Got a bit of a task this evening. It is a friends 25th wedding anniversary today and they are having a party on Saturday. I have been known to put pen to paper and compose an appropriate 'ditty' basically making fun of whoever the party host/hostess is. It has actually become an expectation that I will come armed with a poem to cause a stir in order to cause embarrassment. Well rather than a poem I have re written the words to Victoria Wood's song, 'The ballad of Freda and Barry'. I am sure many of you are familiar with this hilarious number. So this evening I have my friends son coming round to sort out my 'backing track'. He is a bit of a DJ so hopefully things will be alright on the night x
I spoke to my friend Jo this morning whose mum and sister were diagnosed with breast cancer last week. I have to say they are all incredibly positive about everything. So much so that her mum has decided to call her boobs Morecambe and Wise. She said that if she ends up having a mastectomy she will rename them Little and Large. Sounds frivolous but Jo and I did have a laugh because that is how they have decided to deal with things. Long journey ahead which will be tough but to quote my friend Jo 'what will be will be' x
Laine and I were supposed to have a catch up last night but she had a migraine which had taken hold big time so our catch up is delayed for now. She will be back here as soon as she is up to it. If you are reading this Laine I am sending you hugs x
Huge apologies for my lack of inside info into all your ups and downs but as I said, busy week so my comments could be intermittent. Come next week things will quieten down and I will be back on track and able to update myself on everybody's news.
Sending everyone love and happy thoughts with extra hugs for anyone who needs them x
Take care

Hello Sue
I am quite envious I don't have any of your beautiful papers. Elaine so sorry Andrew still hasn't any news you would have thought the consultant would have arranged for a scan to be done just before his appointment. Tina I hope Mick has had some good news. Pam now I know where your caring nature has come from you have always looked after others your family must have really needed you. Myra you can come for a cheese scone anytime.

Tracy Stitt said...

Hi sue and crafty crew.

Oh my what a belter of a card!! Amazing to think you've used a striplet. I really do love it Georgeous colour so need to get ur paper pad.

I see there's a few new names on the blog sue lovely to see new names :-) x

Well ladies had Drs this morning but I guess mine was off sick and had another so I had to go over everything again which got me worked up. Wish they would just quickly read the notes before u go in. Any ways several tissues later he gave me a line for 3 weeks and to come back to my own dr. By then I'll be due my two weeks hols so I might be back to work after my hols.
However I've a check up an mammogram in sept that'll be my year up already so my anxiety is starting to take over. It's so hard not to worry and I'm trying so hard to be positive.

Yvonne g. I'm thinking of u loads chick. I know what it's like being on both ends. It's amazing the treatments that u get depending on the type. I never knew how many kinds of breast cancer there was till it happened to me I've had the breast cancer and kicked it's butt and dealt with myself really well but when it came to my dad having cancer just after I finished treatment of it I found myself crumpling. So now I know how my hubby felt when it was me.
They will have a tough journey ahead but having u support them thru it can be just as tough on u too.
Love n squishy hugs being sent ur way.

Diane I agree with u on the choc!
3 things should be available on nhs
Chocolate, ice cream & massage! Works for me every time but not necessarily in that order hee hee.

Lynda b. Hope ur doing ok my lovely lady. Xx

Love to all as always. Hugs available on request lol

An amazing card Sue. Lovely colours and great idea to use the striplet for the lacy circle. Would never have guessed it was a striplet. All just beautiful.
Well done June on your prize and good wishes to all who have troubles or worries at present. X

Hi Sue. Oh WOW !!! Today's card is absolutely stunning !!! I really love it all !!! The paper you have chosen from your paper pad is beautiful, and the Noble circles look amazing. I love the frame you have made with them. Your petite Atlas die is so gorgeous !!! ( I hope I have the right name for it !!!) It makes such a beautiful Lacey effect when used in this way. Such a clever idea for using the striplet dies. Great sentiment to, but again your Poppy dies are the star of the show !!! They are soooo gorgeous Sue, especially made with your paper pad to, bringing everything together just perfectly. Thank you for sharing your stunning card today Sue. Sending lots of love to you Sue from Tres x x x

Sending lots of love to everyone from Tres x x x

Love this card. The poppies are gorgeous. Will be casing this ASAP. Myra from Florida

Sandy H said...

Stunning card. The poppies, as always, are fabulous. Spent ages looking at the card wondering how I'd missed such a lovely big lacy die before I read your description. I've got the Petite Atlas Striplet but would never have thought to use it like this.
Take care everyone.

Hi sue, I would love to win this card, it would be a honour and go straight into a frame, crafty hugs Julie laz xx

Just to let you no I've not commented on anything for a full week, I don't know if anyone no's about this
But due to my illness I went blind in one eye, it's been like this for 2 years now and so hard to live with cos of my crafting and I'm only 44 and with the other illness which I've had for 11 years,
on Monday I went to see a different eye doctor, and they said I could have a donor eye, but the recovery would be 4 to 6 months, I don't know what to do, so I was wondering if anybody knew anyone who has had one or no's anything about it,
I can't listen to doctors anymore, because of my other illness I listened to the doctor and 7 surgeries later, I'm in a wheelchair, sorry to go on and on, just wondering if anyone no's many thanks Julie laz xxx
