Best Wishes Today & Forever

Hi bloggers!  I have just found another card that missed it's day on the blog!  I am thinking about doing a day every month where it is a sort of clear out of all the cards that I have made that never got a day on the blog. What do you think, would that work for you?  I started this one with a piece of Blue Dusk card and I used the cutting edge from the Pictor die to cut the lower edge.  I then cut the Pictor die in black on the and added it under the blue dusk piece.  I cut the other portion of the Pictor in white and added it below the black and blue card pieces.  For the focal element, I cut the Double Pierced Noble oval die in white and created a frame.  I added a thinner frame to the top cut in black.  I stamped a sentiment and embossed it with the Jacobean Floral embossing folder and added the frame over it, then seated it in the top of the card.  I cut two Exquisite Poppies in blue dusk card and added black centres with pearls and seated them on the side of the frame with Olive Branches as accents.  I placed two pearl corner accents in the upper corners and completed the card with white, black and blue dusk mats.  The finished dimensions are 7" x  8" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Beautiful card, just gorgeous. Best wishes to you too.
Myra, I am so happy that Emily will soon be able to interact with you all soon, she is doing so well, you must be aching to cuddle her and just look into her face, as a grandma, I can understand your feelings. It is a blessing that she is here but she is a little girl too and needs her cuddles.i wish you all a wonderful Christmas.
Laine, so lovely to see you back, hope you and Mum are feeling better.
Myra, congratulations to your granddaughter, I too passed 1st time, no one more surprised than me.
Elaine, good that Andrew has had his scan, just have to wait it out now, hugs for him and Helen, so much going on for them.
Tina, sounds as if Peter is doing better, how is his leg now.
Sharon, hope you are feeling better today, it has been a long struggle for you. OurJune is galloping away now, you will have to catch her.
Tracey, how are you doing Hun, it is a tough time if year for you at the moment.
Daily thoughts and hugs to Tina, Dragonsnap and Helens family.
Hugs to all on the blog, missing and poorly friends especially.

Morning Sue.
Thank you so much a lovely card.
Sue all your cards would be lovely to see even the wonky ones lol.
Have a good day and take care Kitty.

BridgetCG said...

Dragonsnap2 said...

Lovely card again today. I love the blue and white cards. I think your idea to show your cards that we haven't seen is great. Anything to see more of your lovely cards.

Once again, thanks for all your good thoughts and wishes for me and my family. Events have taken a turn but a mixed blessing - God really works in mysterious ways! My sister is no longer going to be on her own at Christmas but only because her daughter and partner have just split up so she and her children will be spending Christmas Day with my sister. Like I say a mixed blessing.

Thoughts and prayers to all of those in need, especially at this time of year.

Happy crafting.

D xx

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Morning Sue. Today's message comes back to you ten fold. I love your idea, it's such a shame that you spend your time making samples to help us gain inspiration and knowledge, and they don't get their day in the spotlight, so if you have the time it's a great idea. The poppy's are really exquisite and really draw your eye into the whole design. I know you have followers that don't get black on projects, but sometimes it's just so necessary, without the POP of black this card it would be quite bland - I suppose you could use the midnight blue if black really isn't your stash, but the black card just makes it all stand out and look 'alive' imagin it with the black gloss too lol how many are having palpitations now lol, sorry, just teasing !
There is no WiFi where we are hiding away over Christmas so lucky for you my comments will be very very short, one worders even, but nothing will stop my enjoyment and my day will continue to start with Particraft and I'm looking forward to a happier more positive craft blog in the new year, and hopefully it will encourage even MORE daily followers into Sue's world.
My usual hug is coming your way on this nasty freezing frosty morning xxx

Denise Bryant said...

So pretty! Love the layers and colors!

Really lovely card today, Sue, gorgeous design and colours - topped with the ever perfect poppies.
Think it's a great idea to feature your languishing cards, they need their day on the blog and the more the merrier, I say!
Dragonsnap - yes, a mixed blessing, hope their Christmas goes well, and yours too.
Laine - hey wot - missed you?! Of course not, though hordes pleading for you to come back! And that PP as well, though you will no doubt wonder why lol. Sorry you and Mum been so poorly, perhaps all that M&S nosh will cheer you up. Furbabies here loved and adored from inception, so to speak - but will happily let them go if a lovely home surfaces. And if you believe that........ Sadly lost Bunty (feral who came with name though he is a boy) yesterday, the dreaded kidney failure.
Fluffycat - he won't miss them and he'll be fine - report back please.
Myra - very good news re Emily, you all must be thrilled.
Other Myra - well done to GD on passing her test - like Pam, am a first-timer too, a miracle as nearly passed out with nerves near Tiverton en route to test!! Had to sit in hedge to recover - all many moons ago.
Hugs to all who are poorly or sad.

Good morning Sue.
A beautiful card in such a lovely shade of blue.
I love your idea of having a day a month to post all your designs that haven't had their 'day to shine' on your blog, I for one can never get enough inspiration. X

Chris Curry said...

Great card Sue, love that blue. Can't believe you have many cards that haven't made the blog but sounds like a great idea. Thank you. Xx

Yvonne H said...

Good morning Sue,
Absolutely exquisite card & with your beautiful poppies. All your cards need to be seen, so the more the merrier. Yvonne xx

Tina T said...

Good morning Sue and crafters all,
This card is beautiful, fancy hiding it away!!!!
Love the simplicity, love the poppies and the black makes it pop. The sentiment is returned to you to!!!
Pam - love to you and your family, hope you have finished work for Christmas and thank you for your continued good wishes.
Peter's leg has gone down and nearly it's normal size without any medical input.
His eating is getting better, didn't enjoy his kippers he ha been pining for. Drinking is still his problem,getting plenty down is difficult as his mouth is dry.
He is getting his wheels tomorrow. I applied for a wheelchair last Thursday and it is coming tomorrow, then at least I can get him out safely.
Stephanie C have you thought about a mobile WiFi dongle when you go away, get them on pay as you go. I always take one on holiday . Enjoy your break.
Elaine,Helen, Nanna Tina sending love and hugs keep your spirits up girls.
June - hope your prize soon arrives. Keep doing your excercises and the walking continues to improve.
Love and crafty hugs to all
Tina T xxxx

Debra K. said...

Wonderful card today Sue! A great idea to show the cards that haven't had their day on the blog :).

Dragonsnap. I'm really sorry about your sister's daughter splitting up from her partner, lets hope they can work things out but I'm glad your sister won't be alone this Christmas. Also children have a way of taking your mind off things if only for a few hours. When my dad died in the November before Christmas my son who was only 5 months old was a great comfort to my mum. I hope Christmas is a bit less worrisome for you all. Debra x

June Smith said...

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, how could you have missed this one it is gorgeous and I think the day a month for all cards that have not had a viewing is a great idea.

Went to physio 'joint school' yesterday, there were about 8 of us all at different stages, there are 3 session of about 45 minutes and you do a warm up together round some beams then you have 10 exercises to do at your own pace, well on the list was yes you have guessed it the exercise bike and I told them that it was a definite no, no, no, from me for this one, I had the bruises for quite a time so will never try that again, they were happy about it and said there were other exercises I could do. Stupid me wore a skirt instead of trousers so there were 2 exercise that I did not do, nobody wants to see me with my legs in the air showing off next weeks washing ha ha!! so I know what to wear going forward. Back on the 4th and then final one on the 18th.

Dragonsnap, they say that as one door closes another opens and this is true for your Sister and her daughter, it will be a difficult time but they can be together, hugs to you all xxx

Myra, good news of Emily, you will soon get your cuddles.

Myra, I too passed 1st time although I don't drive anymore, wishing your granddaughter many happy of safe motoring.

Laine, nice to see you back, how are you and Mum doing?

Elaine, pleased that Andrew has finally had his scan, now it is the waiting game, sending hugs to Helen and family too.

Tina, sounds as if Peter is doing better, how is his leg now.

Sharon, how are you doing, slowly but surely, I bet your running around, which is something I struggle with because of my back but I am feeling a lot more comfortable in myself. Are you still doing physio or have you passed that stage.

Special hugs to Tracey, Tina, Diane G, Theresa G and anyone else I have forgotten.

Got the last day of visits from our son, d-I-l, and granddaughter today before they head home to Birmingham later this afternoon, so looking forward to it, we are going to let her open a couple of her presents, she thinks that as she has been a very good girl that Santa left them with us on his way up to Birmingham....oh the innocence and wonder of a child at this time is priceless. Yesterday she sad with me in my craft room and she finished off a card I had made with lights in and stick it down for me, then wrote to Mummy and Daddy for Christmas, it was so wonderful to spend quality time with her on her own, then after our meal she gave it to them well the tears were certainly there, fantastic time.

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

Laine, hope you and Mum are getting better.

Myra, congratulations to your granddaughter, I too passed 1st time.

Elaine, hope Andrews scan went well.

Tina, great news about Peter's leg hopefully it is getting better now.

June That's great new about Physio I start mine on the 3rd Jan at the hospital as my physio saw me and couldn't do anymore as im doing everything she has told me to do everyday between everthing else lol... so onto the next step like you, I will have to be careful like you as I have arthritis in my spine, but when my daughter was in hospital as I came out from visiting her a guy was pushing an over filled rubbish truck and pushed it straight into me which has damaged my muscle and nerves in my back and neck so having to deal with that as well at the moment, and full of another cold so the Vit C and Echinacea hasnt worked so far.

Sending love and healing hugs to Tracy Tina, Dragonsnap Diane G Theresa G and Helen and all need it that and I have missed.

Love to all and have a good day

Izzy said...

Hi Sue,

I really like the imaginative twists you've used to make this card, very interesting use of the Pictor set and embossing the text panel rather than the outer blue piece is so unusual but works really well.

Would love to see all the cards you've made Sue, bring them on!

Izzy

Donita Naylor said...

Dear Sue, please add my vote to those hoping to see cards that might have been forgotten. They don't all have to demonstrate a new technique, although this one shows how to join two colors with the choices allowed by the Geminis. I am still amazed at how exciting it was In November to see your new designs and the cards you made from them. My eyes were licking their lips!!! And now I wonder what you can possibly do next. I hope you have some ideas, because my eyes are hungry again.
Since I found out about your beautiful dies and started watching your videos, I have made such amazing cards that people think I'm artistic. If I have any talent, it's for adding to my shopping cart and checking out with PayPal. And then doing as close to what you do with what I have. They also think I'm creative! The creativity is all yours, so thanks for letting us buy it and use it. Your dies are just the kind of graceful that I wish I could be. And when I send a card made from them, both the recipient and I acquire the beauty that came out from you. How do you do that!?! What you draw is graceful and for that I'm grateful.

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, a lovely card that should definitely be seen. I like the idea of a monthly 'clear-out' of cards that you have not posted for one reason or another. I'm sure we all appreciate getting as much inspiration as possible.

Laine - good to see you back. Hope your mum is now fully recovered and you are both ready for the festivities.

'P' - a report will follow, probably on Saturday.

Today's card is beautiful and I love how you have used the ovals in two frames in different sizes! Very effective! Love the flowers too and the colours.
Thanks everyone for your congratulations for my granddaughter!
Myra in Florida - so pleased about Emily and I'm sure she is just longing to sit on someone's lap and have lots of hugs! Such good news! Thank you for keeping us posted.
June - I did laugh at the picture you painted in my head of your exercise regime! Keep going , you are doing so well!
Laine - nice to see you to see you ----nice! Maureen and I have behaved impeccably just recently! Santa is coming you see and he only comes to girls who have been good!! It's hard work though! Sorry your Mum hasn't been so well! You have had your moments too!! Hope you are both now on the mend ready for Christmas!
PP - I do hope you aren't too poorly!
Thanks again Pam for keeping us up to date! I passed first time too! I could hardly believe it! It was a while ago mind you but a wee bit after the time when someone walked in front waving a red flag!! Maureen remembers that though!
Think I'd better go! Thanks Sue and Please show as many cards as you can! We learn from each and every one!
Night Night! Love Myra xx

I love your idea of doing a post for the cards that have not been showcased!!! Would love to see them and maybe glean some great ideas!!! This card I really do love the color and the very different use of the dies!!!

Hello Sue
A really delightful card in a striking colourway.
I do like those little touches of black and the exquisite poppies which have recently dropped through my letterbox. They are gorgeous as are all your floral dies.
Thank you for all the inspiration you have given us all throughout the year, for your Wednesday Giveaways and for the chance to win a Die at the start of your new die releases.
I hope you have a wonderful Festive season and manage to find some time to relax, Sue.

Seeing all the cards you have made would be a treat. Works for me.
I love the black accents on this card. A little black always makes things pop. The card is beautiful as usual and I do love the sentiment used also.
Everyone have a good evening (or is it?)
