Just A Note

 Hello crafters!  For today's card offering, I cut the Indian Ocean Background out of coconut white card and backed it with Wisteria card.  I cut the centre out and added mounting foam to the back of the frame.  I kept cutting the smaller dies in the set in the same manner and worked a stair step going downward to the centre of the card.  I used the inner oval from the Charlotte die set to create a white frame backed with Iris card for my sentiment.  I added it over the stamped sentiment and attached it to the middle of the stair stepped frames.  I cut two of the Starflower clusters in white and cut the matching flowers in Iris card.  I glued the flowers behind and added pearls to the centres.  I attached them in opposite corners as accents.  I completed the card with white, wisteria and iris card mats.  The finished dimensions are 6 1/2" x  8 1/2" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Lovely card Sue, just lovely.
Elaine, I'm glad the hospital reassured Andrew. Hope the treatment goes well today. You too need to be sorted, stress is a serious problem and you have had more than your fair share.
Yvonne, Have a good day with Maureen, I will watch the news fir the Royal visit.
Tina and Owen, hope it is all sorted for the service now, it is such a difficult time, thinking of you.
Dawn, hope you got the pain relief sorted.
Hugs to all especially missing friends, NannaTina, Nirah, Wheeley

Wow Sue a beautiful card with dimensions to sit on a card, lovely. Have a great day, hugs xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

June Smith said...

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, another cracker of a card, I like the raised effect which really shows off the versatility of these dies.

Got signed off from Physio yesterday so pleased about that, they were a lovely bunch of physiotherapists but what with craft in the morning and then that in the afternoon I was knackered by the evening, still great news for me.

Pam I hope you are feeling a bit better every day, wrap up warm because it is still -2 in Kent this morning, not sure what it is where you are.

Special hugs to Elaine, Andrew, Tina, Owen, Dawn, Nanna Tina and anyone else who needs one.

Yvonne I hope you have rolled out the red carpet for your welcome to Maureen, have a wonderful time together xx

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

Beautiful card with a nice pop of colour.


Stephanie Cotterill said...

Morning Sue. I love to see what you have chosen for us each day. From 5am I'm clock watching with anticipation, so when my day starts with such a pretty card how can I not smile at your choice. Unfortunately this collection came along when funds were low so it's never found a place in my die collection. In circumstances like that I have to build my collection with the beautiful Finishing Touches, I can then, thanks to your gorgeous designs try and enhance what I've made with extra beautiful floral dies etc. I just love the inspiration you give every day and this sample is no exception, it really is beautiful Sue, thanks for making me smile every morning. For that alone you deserve a big hug. Have a nice day ☺ xxx

Jacqui oakes-alcock said...

Great card Sue, love the colours.

Donita Naylor said...

This one's even better than yesterday's!

This would be my favorite thing to do with the star cluster, if I just had the background stamp. And hadn't lent the star cluster out!

Still, the concept of bracketing something on a diagonal is so nice.

Thanks for giving us beauty in the morning!

Donita in R.I.

Love your card today Sue. The colours give a happy feeling. I am very fond of dimension so great to see such a great way to use all the different dies to such grear effect. Love the star flower die. I have been very inspired by how you charge the look of the die by snipping and cutting so have been experimenting. Thank you again for sharing so much.

Good morning Sue. Gorgeous card, love how the eyes are drawn downwards to the sentiment. Again I don't have the ingredients, but that doesn't matter, I can admire the card and adapt it for dies that I do have.
I'll watch the NE news tonight for details of the "royal visit", seriously though I hope that Maureen and PP have a great time. Hugs to all with special ones to anyone in need. Sue xxx

Good morning Sue and crafters all,
Beautiful card this morning, I have not got this collection, but no doubt they will gradually creep into my collection as and when funds will allow.
Pam - my friend how are you today, hope that you are improving. Don't rush back to work - go back to bed!!!! This retired lady might do just that.
Yes all arrangements are now in place!!!
Peter's final song will be "Sympathy for the Devil" by the Rolling Stones one of his favourites. Going in to "Baker Street" as he loved the Saxaphone solo.
June Smith - I bet you are so pleased that physio has finished, Wish I belonged to your craft club.
To all my crafty blog friends Elaine, Andrew,Helen,P in Wales,PP, Yvonne, Dragonsnap2,CraftySuetoo, and all to many to mention, my thanks and hugs to you all from Owen and myself.
Hull is 7degrees this morning.

Hello Sue,
Fabulous card today, it really "sings" to me (as you would say!)
Tina and Owen, what great music to celebrate the life of a much loved husband and father.
Pam, hope the chest is improving and that you are resting.
Well ladies, I have a busy morning. The royal summons has been issued so I've booked the hairdresser, beauty salon, podiatrist, manicurist, diction coach (must speak correctly in the presence of royalty) and dresser to make sure I am well turned out for the great lady!!!! Eldon Square security have been notified so that they can control the crowds when Yvonne arrives!!!!!
love to all who are ill, bereaved or lonely.

Morning, Sue,
Another very pretty card today. The flowers are delightful.
I love the way that your intricate dies always cut so cleanly, it's one of your trademarks.
We have a clear blue sky with bright sunshine this morning, however, it's really quite cold. It's about 8c in the sun in the back garden but in the shade out the front there's a very definite nip in the air. Fingers crossed it will still be sunny after lunch as it's west facing and should warm up a bit once the sun has tracked to the front of the house :). Hey...I'm not complaining, for a change it's dry and there's no wind lol.

Hello Sue,
I really really love this card! When I first looked at it the shadows and depth reminded me of upholstery! I know I'm odd but it's meant to be a compliment! I just love how you have achieved that. The little blue flowers are so pretty! Thank you!
Maureen - I was going to ask how Yvonne was going to recognise you - after all that preparation I wouldn't recognise you myself!!! However I'm sure you'll have thought of something glamorous - black glasses and a copy of Vogue maybe???
Have a lovely time you two! I'm sure you will!
Elaine - you have had stress by the barrow load! Hope the appointment goes well! Take care.
Tina and Tina! Lots of love .
Miss you Norah! x

Maureen Killen said...

Hello Sue,
I hope this is all right to post here, but ladies in case you look in, I thought I'd update you about "the visit". I forgot myself and raised my eyes to look at Yvonne. Don't worry she forgave me but I was reminded sharply not to do it again ha ha. Had a great meet up, but I didn't get the chance to talk much as she rabbited on for England, boy can she talk, my ears are sore!!!! Believe it or not the Coffee shop flashed their lights on and off to tell us they were closing so we had to move, otherwise she'd have had me sitting there all night. She said that if we meet up again when she comes back up North I may be allowed to speak, if I ask nicely ha ha. What really amazed me were the crowds who came out to see her, anyone would think they hadn't seen a Princess before!!
She may tell you a different story, but don't believe her, I wouldn't tell porkies, would I??
Laine, I do not know how you spent all that time with her, you have the heart of a lion lol.
I am now going to lie down in a darkened room!

Theresa Pace said...

very pretty and the iris flower is very delicate, hugs xx

Princess Pixie! said...

Evening Sue
Oh this is such a gorgeous card. The colours are soft and the dimension created by staggering the layers is delightful x
I will be itching to get back into my craft room when I get back home. I haven't got the Indian Ocean background die but maybe a variation on a theme using another background could work. I'll have to put it on my to do list (which is pretty long) x
Sue I keep 'checking out' your new dies and cannot tell you how excited I am to see what you are going to delight us with. My imagination is running riot and the anticipation is forcing me to wish the days away so that your launch is upon us in all its glory x
Well the day that Maureen had been waiting for finally arrived. Her excitement at the prospect of meeting a celebrity was very apparent. I made sure I arrived a little early because I wanted to get rid of the red carpets. After all I didn't want Maureen to feel any more inferior than she actually is.
I was alone and hid my royal status to make her feel comfortable! I know how hard it is for lower class people to relate to those of us who are held in such high esteem by so many.
We went to have a cuppa and I hoped that I would be able to drink up then make my excuses and be home within the hour but it was not to be. I sat politely and listened to her go on and on for almost three hours!!!
OK, so I'm telling a bit of a porky. Lol. We met at 1.30 and went to have a cuppa straight away and had the loveliest time chatting about anything and everything. At 5.20 they had obviously had enough of us cackling that they began to flash the lights in a not very subtle fashion to make sure we knew it was time to clear off!
A quick trip to Boots then another 20 minutes nattering on the street and we managed to part company with me being forced to promise to stay in touch. Lol x
If any of you were wondering why your ears were burning then it is all down to Maureen. I tried to stop her spilling all your secrets girls but as you know she is a dreadful gossip x
Quick update on the wrinklies - they have new names! Hobble (my dad) and Wobble (my mumm). Mum had to have an x ray on her hip today. She had both hips replaced almost 12 years ago and they have started to give her a bit of trouble - one in particular. So off to the hospital she went. Results sent to her GP next week x
OK folks. I will finish by sending lots of love to Tina T, Nanna T and Elaine x
Apologies if I have missed any news but will confess to not reading comments as I know many of you were eager to hear how today went x
Sending you all love especially my lovely besties.
Take care
Happy thoughts and Crafty Hugs
Yvonne x

I have the Star flower cluster on my huge wish list and also the Charlotte die set. I really love both sets. Lovely colours you have used to. Thanks for sharing your gorgeous card Sue. Lots of love to you Sue from Tres x x x
