Oh gorgeous card, lovely. I enjoyed Johns show last night, bought some dies and card, He has become quite a performer too as well as a great crafter.
Congratulations to Anne Enjoy your win.
Tina, as always you are in my thoughts, hugs to you and Owen.
NannaTina, good to hear from you. I hope the crafting helps, as you say one day at a time. Sending you a comforting hug too.
Elaine, I hope Andrew has started to feel a little better, he has come so far but it is an aggressive treatment and it does wear you out. I hope our hugs and best wishes help him.
Drove to work yesterday in the most horrendous weather, wasn't well at work and left at 10.30, saw GP who has put me on sick leave for 1 week, another respiratory viral infection. Oh well.
Our white stuff has disappeared for now but still very windy. Take care everyone, there is some very nasty weather over the UK and Europe at the moment.
Hugs to all, especially missing friends. Wheeley how are you doing.

Good morning Sue. Beautiful card, love all your shadow boxes as there's just so many different things you can do with them. I've been having a lovely morning catching up on all your videos - you have to make a positive out of being woken up by gale force winds!

I always love the shadowbox cards! So versatile. Love this garden themed one!

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Morning lovely lady. Can't wait to watch you play with this lovely collection, can't enjoy it properly with a dog around pestering and singing for attention asking for her morning walk in the freezing cold !!
These dies are such a happy playful collection with loads n loads of different options (I just need to get stuck in and use what little imagination I have) honestly Sue these SB collections have been the greatest idea yet, I can't begin to imagin what's next on your designer list if they are so different to your last collection lol.
So it's getting closer to me being able to watch your tutorial I know it will end with a smile on my side ☺
Congratulations to Anne enjoy your gift.
Hugs from me to you Sue xxx

Such a beautiful card.
Congratulations Anne.

Dragonsnap2 said...

Love the card today. These dies are so versatile. I made a birthday card for a man just before Christmas but with different colours it could just as easily have been a lady's card. Some of the family tree dies also work well with this.
Congratulations to Anne. Enjoy your win.
Crafty hugs to all n need. Nice to hear from NannaTina again.
Happy crafting.

Morning Sue. A beautiful card and a great one for the guys. I love all your shadow box dies as you can mix and match them to your hearts content and come up with some gorgeous cards. Great idea with the white pencil, that why you have such a great following as you have some wonderful ideas that we wouldnt think of. Thanks for another great video. Congratulations to Anne on winning Wednesdays beautiful card. Well i have woke up this morning and we still have loads of that white stuff but at least the winds have gone down. The weather isnt looking promising for the rest of the weekend so i think i will just stop in and do some crafting and watch the creative expression team work there magic. Take care everyone.
Best Wishes.

Lovely card Sue. Craft card and gardening seem to go together so well, and this card would be great for any keen gardeners but I think maybe more for a man. Thank you. Have a good day, I will be enjoying Hochanda shows when possible this weekend but will have to miss some, sadly. Xx

June Smith said...

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, how I love these shadow box cards and this one is no exception, fabulous, will watch the video later, but great idea with the white pencil.

Congratulations to Anne of Calne, enjoy your prize.

Pam, sorry to hear that you have another infection, please take care, wrap up warm and don't go out unless you really, really have too, hopefully the medication will kick in quickly.

We still have a little bit of the white stuff but most of it has gone now, have to go out today so will catch up with Hochanda shows later.

Special hugs to everyone, you all know who you are.

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

Good morning Sue and crafters all,
Lovely card and what a clever concept the Shadow boxes are. Recently made retail therapy for Owen's partners birthday and it is still on show - really loved it.

Arrangements for Peter now made, how I miss him.
Pam , our white stuff went early yesterday! So sorry you have another chest infection, please keep warm and give yourself a big hug like you always send to us.😘😘
To June Smith, hope you go carefully in this weather😘😘
Nanna Tina now I know what you went through, not easy!!!!😘😘

Donita Naylor said...

Dear Sue and Craftynettes,

Although I was won over by the graceful swirls and intricacies of Sue's designs and just about faint when I see the swirly ones with tuille bows and pearls and flowers, THIS is my speed. This one has a little dirt under its fingernails, and I LOVE it!!! Makes me wish for some craft card, of all things. My garden shadow box arrived early this week and the baby one on Friday, and so did the Family Tree!!! I showed them to a woman at work who does scrapbooking, and she said, "I think I finally found someone who has it worse than me."
By which she meant being addicted to papercrafting and supplies. She's more electronic than me and has a Silhouette, which is like a Cricut. Do you have those in the U.K.? They never appealed to me because operating them is too much like working on the computer at work. Die cutting is FUN! It's like playing! I like to play card factory!
Anne of Calne, I'm so envious! Enjoy the envy! You're the winner!!! Everybody wishes we could be you!
Pam, on the other hand, you can enjoy our sympathy. Same with Tina and Elaine and NannaTina. We don't wish to be you at the moment, but we do wish you the best while you go through what nobody wants to go through. Take good care of yourselves and let others take care of you, too.
We can't do much from here except wrap you in a blanket of healing light and ask the Universe to carry you.
Love,
Donita in R.I.

Hi Sue
What a lovely card today, craft card and pencil make a lovely combination don't they. Thank you for the hints and tips. John is so good at showing off your dies, we do miss you but it's nice to know you can concentrate on designing the dies and take a step back from the tv demoing and know they are in safe hands.
Love Diane G xxx

Norah McPhee said...

Good morning Sue and the Wilsonettes,
What a pretty card this one is Sue and so nice for either sex i think with it still being amongst us that like pretty in card making. It's not too girly looking but could still be for either or as it just looks so bonnie. I wonder if it would encourage my friend to make his garden look more like a garden instead of a barren stoney dumping ground for when he finds things that he can give a new home to with a little bit of fixing, lol. Thank you flower for another brightened day that keeps us going and i hope that you are missing out on this cold and flu that is going around.
Well done Anne, i hope that you get rare encouragement from your beautiful WOW, enjoy flower.
Pam, honest it wasn't me that gave you the largy or flu that my dear husband decided to spread to Rory and I because he doesn't know what a hankie is for nor does he not understand the concept of covering this mouth before coughing and that does not include making his hand into a megafone to cast it as wide spread as possible. I can recommend real lemons with honey and hot water to at least ease a sore throat, and i have just got in my new supply from Matthew from Asda in his little white and green van. Just remember flower, work will be there when you're not and unfortunately more and more places of work you are just a number no matter how good your attendance is, so take the doctors line and get yourself better flower. Oh and i'm awful glad that i hadn't made a right numpty of myself in seeing if that was early morning Pam/ our Pam, lol.
Tina flower, i'm glad that you had a sleep flower, it would do you the world of good if not including the glass of prosecco. There is only so much a body can take flower and i think your's has been on high alert long enough. Please try and take some care of yourself, you need it after all that you have been through with your beloved Peter. Sending hugs to you and Owen with my prayers and love.
Tres, it's so nice to see you back again flower. And June, please, please be careful as you have now i hoped finished having trouble with your knee that was operated on and we don't want you going back the way with it.
Well it is so nice to see the sun out up here even if it is just kid on warmth that it is projecting. It reminds me of my first boss's shop where he had this contraption above the door to the back room and it went red when switched on, but it never actually gave out any heat, it was just to make you feel as if it wasn't as cold. I'll tell you , i used to hate having to wash folks hair in there in the the winter as they would end up with the cold while having to wait around for their hair to get sorted. On a Monday when i was in with the apprentice, i used to put on the hairdryers that our older ladies that still got shampoo arnd sets sat under. Our snow has remained on the hills and fields so it looks pretty and it is mostly off our roads now so it's driveable again.
Sending hugs to Tina and Owen, Elaine, Andrew and Helen, and to all that need, could do with or just want, my hugs are on their way,
love and crafty hugs
Norah (Glenochil Village)

Hi Sue, I absolutely love this card. Thanks for the video with the usual hints and tips. Although I don't have the daisy dies I will be making my version of this card for my sister's birthday next month with some older flower dies that I do have. She is a keen gardener and loves using craft card herself so I know she will love this one.

Pam - please take care of yourself and get well soon.

Hello Sue,
I just have a feeling that I may be late tomorrow so I'm doing this now.
The Garden Shadow Box Die was the one I bought although I added a few extras - the girlie ones and baby ones! I've also discovered that the MDF bits from CE may be used in these cards. I have spades, forks, trowels , plantpots etc etc!
It's a great idea ! I love today's card and thank you for the excellent tip on the use of a white pencil! Sue , whatever will you come up with next? Will it cost me a lit of money???? Lol.
Pam - so sorry you aren't well! Thinking of you and sending lots of love - where would we be without you ! Take care my friend!
Tina, Nanna Tina and Elaine lots of love coming your way too.
Laine - missing you - hope you are not ill. Your input is sorely missed!
Yvonne - I do hope your parents are making progress and that you are not too tired trying to help! I'm going to be very serious for a minute and say that if you need a break or someone to talk to please call on Maureen - I know we tease each other but only friends can do that . Maureen will really help you , she is one in a million! I just hope she doesn't read this - it may make her faint!!!
Lovely be to all who need support on this lovely blog!
It's the best!
Thank you Sue, Love Myra xxx

Hi sue.
Great card. I love craft card too.

Went to craftworld in Glasgow today. Bought the noble ovals and the retail therapy set among a few other bits and bobs. Used my voucher up too. The staff are so lovely there I'm almost on first name terms with them all nothing's ever a bother to them if u need to ask anything.
Was gutted they didn't have the striped nurstirsiums tho that's what I wanted so badly ah well next time lol

Love to all xx

Hello Sue.

I think this is a great Card. I love the Shadow box dies and the rustic style you have used. I think it would also be a great male Card. Thanks for sharing.

Congratulations Anne from Calne.

Best wishes

Hi Sue

I am still running late with my comments. Not had time to look at the video yet, but that is my aim later tonight.

I love this card and being a gardener myself I think its gorgeous.
