Lovely card Sue, just perfect.
Congratulations to Jenny P, lucky lady.
Theresa, the cast sounds fab, how glamourous you will look.
Elaine, good news that Andrew has the date for his scan, the sooner the better.
Tina, glad Peter has found his drink of choice, does he like the flavoured cokes like cherry, vanilla, lemon and lime, they are gorgeous.
NannaTina, you are in my thoughts every day, I hope you gave plenty of support around you.
I don't think Barbara will be retired long, she is going to look after her baby grandson as her daughter is due back to work in January, she also works at our office.
I may not be able to post daily for next 3 days as I am away but will if I can, not at 6am though.
Hugs to all friends on the blog, June, Tracey, Sharon, take care, missing friends too.

Morning Sue. Wowzer, there was almost smoke coming from your finger tips making that lovely autumnal card lol don't think I've ever seen you put a card together so quickly (not even under the pressure of live demo's) I must try and get more of the Foundations sheen cardstock there seems to be more colours being released and they look lush, a visit to my craft shop is a must before we go away. I can't wait to see what you have in store for us tonight and tomorrow, I'm going to have to pop you in our little black box as we are going out for lunch tomorrow with our new little family and I can't wait to enjoy Lotties company over good food ☺ but I will catch up as soon as we get back.
In the meantime I'll congratulate out Wednesday card winner Penny, enjoy your personal gift from Sue, and send you a hug to pop in your bag along with all your exceptional dies you'll be using. Have a good day Sue and look forward to your live inspiration xxx

June Smith said...

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, a lovely card today, those leaves look so realistic. Will watch video later.

Had another Christmas party yesterday but was sitting down for a lot of the time because it was combined with a small workshop as well (made a Christmas cracker), by the time I got home my knee was very painful, I think it is because the normal chairs are too low for me to sit in comfortably. This also meant that I didn't get much sleep last night, I am Ok but just tired.

Pam I hope Barbara's retirement send off went well and she enjoyed the present and cards, they are lovely things to look back on.

Congratulations to Jenny P

Elaine, good news about the scan for Andrew on Tuesday.

Tina, so lovely that Peter has found a drink he likes, hope he is doing well.

Theresa G we will have to call you a glitter cast girl, hope things are ok for you.

Thinking of NannyTina, Sharon, Diane G, and anyone I have forgotten.

I hope to be able to see Sue on Hochanda tonight, what better way to see her work her magic.

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

Sam Smithard said...

To My Wonderful Dear Friend Sue,
What Can One Say, Other Than Today's Card And Video Tutorial Is Truly Outstanding
I've Now Watched It Twice Once On "You Tube" And Once Again On Your "Fabulous Blog"
I Love How You've Used Those Fanstatic "Pixie Powders". I've Still Not Purchased Any I've Been
So Caught Up With Christmas Etc, Making Cards/Envelope's/Boxes So Very Busy, Just Finishing Off
Four Of "The Stocking Tag Holder Card's" But I Will Make A Small Envelope And Place Money In Where The Gift Tag Should Go.
Back To Today's Awesome Card I Just Love "The Swirling Vines Background" (It Reminds Me Of The Wonderful "Holly Background"
That I've Used Such A Great Deal It's Probaly Called Something Different Lol!!!!)
I Just Adore All Of "The Pearlised Card" From Creative Expression Its A Great Weight And Truly Excellent Quality, I Wish There
Had Been A Deep Red For Christmas Cards, (Maybe in 2017)
Outstanding Sentiment I Love "The Leaves Die"
Sue Thank You So Very Very Much For Sharing Today's Card And Superb Video, Your A Star, And So Very Talented.
I'm So Looking Forward To Watching You On Hochanda, Where You'll Share All Your Tips And Wonderful Technique's
Take Care Sue
Wonderful Warm Fond Wishes To Colin And Heather
Love And Huge Hugs 🤗 To Yourself Sue
Hugs To "All" Wilsonettes, Congratulations 🍀 To Jenny P. For Winning This Weeks Wednesday Card Gift Enjoy....

Hi Sue, sorry I'm late but it has been a busy day and then I put up the tree and decorations whilst watching the Strictly final. I had recorded your show and had just finished watching it only to watch you again here. Good to see you back and great demo's. I love the way on the show you cut the family tree out but still in the card. Today's card is lovely and the leaves look just as autumn leaves should look. Hope to be able to watch you live tomorrow, I'll do my best, anyway.

Jenny P - Congratulations on being the Wednesday Winner, enjoy your snowy card.
