Lovely cards Sue, what an absolute treat, you have been so busy .I hope you have a wonderful Christmas and a good rest.
Congratulations to Mavis, enjoy.
Elaine, I think the hospital are letting Andrew have a delay so that it doesn't spoil his Christmas with feeling sickly. Have a great time.
Tina, my girls will put all my stash on EBay when I'm gone, Kelly said it will take months to list lol, they are not crafty either.
PP, lovely to have you back, and yes we want you. It is a hard time for the boys but they have to remember you are grieving too, he was the love of your life. At least you have all talked now.
Steph have a lovely break, I know the reasons for you getting away but I wish you and Andy peace and love this Christmas.
June, dear lady, you do have some dramas, you have a heart of gold and we all love you.
Emily and Sarah, two brave little girls, hope Santa is especially good to you .
Tracey, Tina, Dragonsnap, Helen and all who are grieving, missing or sad, I wish you a peaceful joyous Christmas, the Lird protect you., and to all on this wonderful blog, who care and support each other all year, thank you for being there, Merry Christmas xxx

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Morning my lovely. Eventually arrived at our destination after fighting a fight with Bernadette which was quite frightening to travel in I can tell you !
This little old chapel took forever to get warm so I was really quite worried that I'd spend the time here wearing my coat all day but it's warm and safe for me now to start and relax !
Every single card is just amazing Sue I can't believe they didn't get their day, some are so different, I have no favourite I love them all (is their a video on you tube for each card) ?
Congratulations to the lucky card winner.
My daily hug for you Sue as usual and I hope you get some festive rest today xx

Anonymous said...

Wow what a treat, Sue, wondering just how many hours were spent making these! Particularly like the blue snowflake, Christmas scene and gold-on-white with candle in the middle - thank you.
Well done to Mavis on the card win.
PP - good to see you back, difficult time of the year for you all but hope the troubles are in the past now and boys on good form.
Pam as ever has said everything so caringly so......
hugs all round and Happy Christmas to all those who can't look in tomorrow.

There are some truly stunning xmas cards in your collection today, I shall have a look at them again when a bit more time (and again and again, there are some that I would like to do myself, but first I have to fathom out how you did it LOL).

Dear Sue What amazingly stunning and beautiful and original and creative christmas cards these are they are all fantastic. I love them all im very glad you didn't ask us to choose our favourite because they are all fantastic. I hope you send these to your friends and family once they've been on your blog as it'd been a crime to make them sit in a box!

I hope you have your family surrounding you with the love you totally deserve this Christmas day and giving you lots of hugs.

Sending a cyber hug as I know this Christmas won't be easy for you.
Love from Katie-Louise sweetlove

Love Myra xx

Tressa said...

A lovely selection to encourage me to start making next year's Christmas cards early. Will that happen in reality? Is that a flock of pink pigs flying overhead?

Seasons greeting to you and all your followers and may the New Year bring happiness to all. Especial thoughts for those who, like myself, have worries about loved ones at this time.


fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, what an astonishing range of cards and so many! They are all lovely but I have my favourites whose pictures I will file away for when I can face making some cards for next year. Thank you.

Mavis L - Congratulations on being the Wednesday Winner, enjoy your card.

'P' - Pippin was fine (apart from almost breaking the carrier trying to escape) and I kept him in from when we got home until this morning. I let him out and he didn't return for 4 hours! He had something to eat and then vanished again but I am sure he will be back for his next meal (she hopes).

Sue, I wish you and all the Wilsonettes a Happy Christmas and hope that those of you that have lost loved ones can not be too sad but remember better times. I also wish everyone a peaceful New Year.


Sandy G said...

lorraine eastwood said...

Good evening lovely Sue and her crafty crew!

Festive felicitations everyone! I do hope that you are all packed and prepped for the big day, putting your feet up with a sherry and mince pie or two and watching Christmas specials on the tv:-)
Today's blog was as good as any festive gift under the tree, we were totally spoiled for choice so i am so glad that you didn't expect us to pick a favourite....though i do like the stocking cards in particular....i could quite happily have festive cards throughout the year because yours are particularly beautiful so i will be quite sad to see the end of our double day Fridays::-(
Christmas is a time that can be filled with joy, wonder, goodwill and family but when any one of these is absent it can take on another dimension altogether. 2016 has been a tough year for quite a few of us, Sue included, and i would just like to send some special hugs their way in the hope that it helps them through their first holidays without their loved is my first Christmas without my own Dad, and Uncle, and i know that i will be thinking of them over the next few days with just a few tears but hopefully also remembering happier times spent in their company.....i'm thinking of you Tracy, i hope that you and your sister can find comfort in one another through the next few daysxxx
Also, i'm thinking of Tina who is facing her first Christmas so soon after Micks passing, i hope your family are a comfort to you at this terrible timexxx
To the sick little cherubs Sarah and Emily, i hope Christmas is a magical time for you and good health is yours for 2017 and beyond.
To Andrew and Peter, you have a lot of love and support from the wonderful ladies on this blog and if that is enough to see you through to good health we will all have had our prayers answered.
Frances, i hope that the men in your life are in good health ie your hubby and Pippin....the latter of which i hope is back home snug in the warmth, he's entitled to a bit of a diva strop after his chestnuts were roasted without his permission::-)
Yvonne, wishing you and the boys a harmonious festive season, thinking of you honey at this stressful time. Hope Mum and Dad are fit for their New Year visitxxx
Maria, hope that you enjoyed your Swedish party, what does it involve?

Your cards are all so beautiful. I got most of my cards done this year--still had a couple to do but then fell and broke my arm so all crafting is at a complete standstill for the next two months. Merry Christmas everyone!!!!

Hi Sue. A fabulous selection of stunners today, which no doubt I'll be looking back at for much needed inspiration.
I would like to wish you, your family, and your amazing blog family a very, merry Christmas. I know that for yourself and many of the rest of us this will be the "first" without a loved one, and I send a special wish to you all.
Congratulations to Mavis on your win. Festive hugs to all. Sue xxx

Evening/morning Sue
I have no idea where today has gone. I did not intend to comment this late, or early depending on which way you look at it x
And a very merry Christmas and lots of love for a peaceful and restful day!!
What a lovely surprise. I was feeling a little deflated that we would not have many Christmas cards left to delight but you have completely put that worry to bed with all the amazing works of art today/yesterday!!!!
Oh how you spoil us Sue. Who needs Father Christmas??!!
The noise, chaos and mess returned to the house the second the boys returned. The peace and quiet and tidy house were wonderful while they lasted. Roll on next years trip!!!
I have had a bit of a review of things on the blog whilst I was away x
Tina - I am so sorry that Mick is no longer with us. My heart goes out to you and I want to send you lots of love. I do hope that you and your family can lean on each other and with each others love and support remember the good times. Life is precious but never long enough and I hope you are able to get through today with joy as well as the sorrow. Hugs x
Tracy - you have had such a lousy year but you have been so amazing. I hope you can enjoy today and raise a glass to loved ones lost and toast yourself for being an incredible lady. Hugs x
Dragonsnap - you are in my thoughts. Your poor sister is going through such a turmoil of emotions and often it makes us feel so helpless as we watch from the sidelines. I am sure your sister knows that you are there for her. You take care. Hugs x
For everyone else on this, the most wonderful and best blog in the world I want to send you all lots of Christmas love and cuddles
All my very special blog besties I love you all and hope you have an amazing day - y'all know who you are x
Must go to sleep now otherwise Father Christmas will not visit x
Crafty hugs
Yvonne x

Hi Sue. WOW WOW WOW What an amazing selection of stunning christmas cards. You have been a busy bee making all of these cards. I am not complaining you could show them all year round for me as you give me loads of inspiration to make my cards. I couldnt pick a favourite as they are all gorgeous. Thinking of all of you who will not have a loved one for the first time this christmas, sending special hugs to you all. Congratulations to Mavis on winning Wednesdsys beautiful card.
Best Wishes.

Happy Boxing Day to my friends in the U.K. [i had to google that to see what it was ❤.]. My favorite was from December 2nd, the shadow box. I'm loving this concept as you can change it up and make every card different with small pieces. Thank you, Sue, for all your creations during the year. My offer always stands. If you get to the Orlando area, my crafting friend and I would love to buy your lunch! Happy New Year, everyone. Myra from Florida
