Treasured Friend

Hi blog friends!  I hope you all enjoyed the last eight days of blog posts! I am sorry to say that we are back to one a day again for awhile, but I found this lovely easel card hiding in one of my files and I thought I would share it with you!  I am hoping it will be a nice break from all those Christmas cards! LOL  I started with milk card and embossed a piece with the Provencale Lace folder for texture.  I added it to a prefolded piece for the top part of my easel. I cut the Geneva outer die and added in the centre die and backed it with blush card.  I cut a slightly larger oval using the Double Pierced Noble Oval set and seated the Geneva on it.  I used the Bern die to frame the sentiment in the centre.  I cut several of the Exquisite Poppies and added them to the bottom of the Geneva frame with Olive branches as accents.  For the inside of the card, I cut the Atlas Striplet in milk card and backed it with blush and attached it with mounting foam to raise it slightly so it acted as a stopper for the card top to sit against.  I completed the cards with flatback cream pearls as accents.  All for now, Sue x

Well you may be back to 1 post today but you have certainly given us a stunner Sue. The card is exquisite.
I hope you have been thrilled with the reception your new collection has generated, I have loved each and every post, thank you.
As many have said it would be lovely if everyone continued to comment daily. It only takes a couple of minutes but it dies highlight all of the hard Work that Sue puts into this blog and will get it to the position she deserves as top blog. Please think about it.
I hope everyone is well, have a good Friday, think Happy Weekend.
Hugs to all,thinking of our missing and poorly friends.

June Smith said...

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, only 1 a day but what a fantastic sample you have given us today, beautiful way to use your dies and embossing folders.

Pam I reiterate all you have said, and please I just hope those that have only commented in order to go into the draw for a free die are going to continue to support Sue, (you are one of the most hard working designers I have ever come across) and bring her back to top position.

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

Morning Sue. Treasured friend. The past 8 days were amazing. You've put so much time and work into the new collection - as always. Beautiful, they are all beautiful and this year you've done a few more to see us through the year, now that's what I call value for money. One thing that gets to us that 4 posts a day, over 200 comments left each post, once the launch is over people disappear and if that upsets us that comment and support you every day, then although your heart is too big and kind to get angry, we feel it for you. We know that you think it's extra followers that have been introduced to your dies, but it takes but seconds to leave a short thank you, it upsets a lot of us how numbers drop the day after launch, we think it's rude.
Anyway that's life I suppose and nothing will change. It's been a brilliant 8 days Sue, thank you. As regular followers of Particraft we are proud of you your inspiration and your love of giving the world wonderful tools to work with xxx

Dragonsnap2 said...

Wow. It will seem strange going back to one post a day. It's amazing how quickly you can get used to having four. This card is stunning.

I would feel awful if I only commented at giveaway time but it seems a lot of people are quite happy to do so. I can only say that they are missing out from all the inspiration you give us Sue and also the help and support from others on the blog.

Thoughts and prayers to all.
Happy crafting.

Beverly Fuchs said...

Hello Sue,

What a wonder eight days they were! Your new Festive Collection is simple fabulous. Each die was more beautiful than the last. And your card creations were all works of art. You should be extremely proud.

Today's card is so pretty and feminine in my favorite colors, milk and blush. Really elegant.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Good morning Sue. A beautiful, gentle looking card today. Your poppy and olive branch dies are never very far from my craft table as they seem to go with everything. Thank you so much for the last 8 days, we very much appreciate everything you do.
I wholeheartedly agree with the other comments, please take the time to leave, even a short comment, each day for Sue - it's our way of saying "thank you for all you do". Hugs to all. Sue xxx

alimecca said...

Hi Sue,
There may be only one post today but wow, it's a good one! This is so beautiful. It would make a gorgeous wedding card as well. It is so elegant and feminine and I love the milk card with the blush as well.
Thank you for the last eight days - they have been very inspiring. You must be so proud.
Now that the launch is over I will say that we had a fantastic time up in the Moray Firth area of Scotland. As I said before saw the pod of Minky Whales but also dolphins. The Culloden Visitor Centre was really interesting as was Fort George. It is a lovely area to visit and one that we will go back to. Walked 28 miles throughout the week and although my knee was stiff by the end of the day, there were no after effects so that was good. The people were so friendly and the weather ( apart from a couple of little showers was good too.
Went swimming on Wednesday and ditched the floats - way too much hassle using them! Remembered how to do front crawl but it is so tiring to do! Worked up to 3/4 lengths of crawl and then finished off the length on my back - 2 lengths like that and I was goosed!! Managed 12 lengths in total so was quite pleased with myself. Off there again today so am aiming to do full lengths of crawl. Mind you I did get half of the pool up my nose!!!
Hope everyone is ok. I never seem to have time to read through every comment at launch time, there are so many. Love and hugs to you all Alison xx

Hello Sue and all
Yes, thank you so much for the fabulous release, my head is still spinning with Christmas ideas and the list of NEEDS is constantly changing. I must make up my mind and put in an order to get started.
Today's card is lovely and reminds us of your rest of the year cards - the poppy and olive leaves are go to favourites. For floral elements too.

Good Morning Sue and all. Thank you for the past 8 days and all your hard work. The new collection was stunning and all the cards were amazing. I have a nice list of your new dies which I fancy getting and each day I looked forward to having a peep.
This Morning card is also stunning and I am not used to you creating the easel card. I love the embossed pack ground and the poppies. I love how you have used the Atlas die for a stopper.... Wendy

Janice K said...

Good morning Sue,

I'm not one to comment on what other people have said but I have to agree today that it always seems so unfair to Sue who puts so much into her blog, that so many people comment only when there's a giveaway.

I agree with everyone else, a lovely elegant card. Perfect for a special friend. Thank you Sue, and also for the wonderful display you gave us over the last week. Have a good weekend. Xx

Anonymous said...

Oh Sue, quite a relief to be back to normal!! Have loved the launch and all of its temptations, but so happy to give full attention to the daily treat and all the comments. Think many of us would like to see more here on a regular basis but fear that the 'irregulars' are highly unlikely to read what is said, so sadly falling on deaf ears. However, living in hope.
Today's card quite an unusual one for you - don't see many easels. Very pretty and my favourite poppies again so love it. A bird must have fortuitously sown a Papaver Orientalis (looked it up!) huge red poppy with black centre and very frilly petals. Utterly gorgeous. Blessed. Must harvest seeds.
Hugs to all.

Morning Sue. A truly beautiful card today, the colours are so pretty. Thank you for another amazing launch, a lot of hard work for you, but very much appreciated.

I do agree that it would be nice if all the people that commented just to win something would continue to comment. Personally I would not dream of commenting just to get a prize, I think it is very rude!!!!!

Beautiful card this morning, love the way you have used a die to make the stopper for the easel.
Really enjoyed the last eight days and later today intend sitting down & making my list. The only snag is I have no birthday or anniversary coming up so my purchases will be limited! Thank you for all your hard work, forty dies must take a lot of time to design & tweak until you are happy with them & the samples were beautiful.

Although we only have one card today, it is a stunner, white on white always works for me.

Izzy said...

Hi Sue,

What a pretty, feminine card, love the triple pierced detail on the Geneva die and the Atlas Striplet is the perfect choice as a stopper as it goes so well with the embossing folder and the poppy dies...

Sad that the festive dies launch is over - it's been a wonderful 8 days Sue with loads on new must-haves and some fabulous cards to showcase them, my wish list is impossibly long with so many new favourites but I'm going to start by buying the Twinkle Star Frames...I think...or maybe the Poinsettia Border...or.....lol

Hello Sue,
What a stunner to resume normal transmission!!! The past 8 days have been fantastic but then to pull this beauty out of the hat is remarkable. I bet your pleased that your collection has been so well received.
Pam, it's cooler today so I hope that helps your breathing.
Alimecca, well done with the swimming, I hope your knee is much improved as you've done so well with the walking.
'P', I fear your deaf ears comments is oh so true. Lucky you with that poppy - would you send the bird over here as I just get the little yellow and orange poppies appearing.
Pat 'L', that's fantastic for your friends in Barbados. What a shame you had to cancel.
Yvonne pet, sorry to read that you are not up to scratch again. Hope you are soon back to full throttle.
Laine, I'm sure your telephone conversation will have left PP feeling much worse ha ha. Good to see your comments.
Love to all Maureen xx

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, can we take a breath now? I don't know about anyone else but your launches wear me out so I can only imagine how you feel :D It is all worth it though to see all your stunning new dies and samples.

I love easel cards and this one is beautiful. The milk and blush card together remind me of very soft ice-cream, delicious. The detail on the Geneva die is lovely and the Exquisite Poppies are gorgeous.

We are in danger of being blown away today but I hope that it has cooled down a bit as promised for those of you who have been suffering from an excess of heat.

Donita Naylor said...

Dear Sue and Wilsonettes,

Whew! What a whirlwind we just had! It was fun, but I, too, am glad to get back to normal.

Welcome to those who came for the launch and stayed. I see some new names. For example, I would have remembered Cards2Di4, Or maybe the ones who seem new to me predate me. I haven't been here a whole year yet. November might have been the first launch I witnessed. Anyway, nice to meet you!

Hey! Did you see, only 9 more people and Sue reaches her magic 5,000 followers!

This card really gives us a lot to ponder. Glad you showed us the striplet that keeps the easel from collapsing. I hope that someday, Blush will be able to cross the Atlantic.

Congratulations to Allison for swimming again, and to Kitty for almost feeling like herself again.

Love,
Donita

Happy Friday

Afternoon Sue. WOW It may only be one post today but what a beauty you have give us. This is a stunning card and i love the way you have made it into an easel card. One of my favourite colours is the Blush cardstock and mine is getting very low, i still haven't found another one to match it, i keep hoping CE will bring another one out (fingers crossed). Your christmas launch has gone down a storm with everyone you should be very pround of yourself. I have my top 5 favourites Angel 2017, Gingerbread House, Gingerbread Man, 3D Fireplace and the Three Wise Men but you have made it very difficult as i do love all your Sentiment dies as well as your Finishing Touches. Hope the number of comments keep up as its such a shame to see them go down after a launch. Thank you once again for all your hard work, your stunning cards and the chance of winning a set of your new dies. You are a very generous, talented and inspirational lady who is greatly admired by a lot of people.

Hi Sue,

Today's card is another stunner, nothing out of ordinary since all your cards are so beautiful. Glad to see again the Poppies, the Geneva die and the Atlas Striplet used as a stopper. Clever. I also love the background embossing folder.
This reminds me about all the new EF you used during of the fantastic blog launch. The past 8 days have been a real treat. Thank you, Sue, for a fabulous collection of dies, stunning sample cards and for the inspiration.

I agree with Rosemary P. and others, I do hope people will comment every day and not just for free giveaways.

Rosemary P. – The Kid is feeling better. Thanks for asking. I mentioned yesterday that it is a big chance to visit us next week, when we plan to celebrate June’s B-days, inluding his b-day.

Happy Friday everyone!

Alovely card Sue, So elegant. Just love the colours too.
I have not seen the Atlas Striplet before and it is lovely. As I have often said, I love using striplets on my cards, bags and gift boxes, so must look out for this one.
Hope everyone is well.
Sue thank you for sharing with us .

lorraine eastwood said...

Good evening lovely Sue and her crafty crew!

I cant quite believe that the launch is over and that we are back to some semblance of normality again....sometimes it can feel as if you are caught in a whirlwind during it so when the wind dies down and the launch comes to an end there is almost a serene calm again on the blog as everyone slows down again and catches breath. I love the launches for their excitement and anticipation but there is also something to be said about the easygoing pace and nature on the blog normally:-)
What a lovely change to have an easel card featured, how refreshing. Nice to see some of your older collections too, it always encourages me to reach for them again....we can sometimes focus too much on the newer ones and the previous favourites are left to gather dust so anything that reminds us of their virtues can only be a good thing. I love the colour palette , it reminds me of ice cream that they used to sell when i was little, yummy! Beautiful composition and use of the dies, thanks for another gorgeous example of your talents Suexxx
Well peeps, I've had a rather active day pampering myself with a Caci facial and blow dry and i am now feeling exhausted! So I'll keep it short and sweet...don't all cheer at once:-)....and just wish all of my blog besties and their long suffering families well:-)
See you all tomorrow xxx

Love and crafty hugs

Stunning card Sue! I absolutely love that embossed background.
Will miss seeing all your amazing cards but it is nice to get back to normal again.

Saba said...

Hello Sue,
Such a pretty and gentle looking card for us today I love the colours you have used and the embossing folder is one of my favourites.
I hope you are floating on cloud nine today knowing how much everyone loved your Christmas release, be very proud of yourself Sue.

Alison that a tremendous achievement, welll done for keeping at it.
P- you are very lucky, the birds here drop,something very different, usually on clean windows. How is Yeti! Is he now a calm fluff ball.
Lorraine will you please ask your beautician to come up with a different name for your facial, I still conjure up dreadful images every time you say it.

Love and hugs for all
Saba. Xxxx

Hi Sue. I love this beautiful card today !!! A lovely colour combo of milk and blush, and a lovely EF to. I can't believe you have used the Geneva Die from your Swiss Collection as I have been making cards using your Swiss Background and tag dies today. I have not finished it yet but my two cards are going to be Easel cards to, using the Swiss border as the stopper !!! What a coincidence !!! ( The Swiss Collection is one of my favourite of your collections Sue. ) Such beautiful designs. I love all the dies you have used on your card, especially the Poppy dies. They are such classy, elegant looking flowers, just like the rest of your card !!! Thank you for sharing it. Lots of love to you Sue from Tres x x x

Lots of love to everyone from Tres x x x

Eunice said...

Such an elegant card today Sue. I love it when you use some of your older dies, it just prompts me to have a look at all the dies and not to forget I have them!!!!

Latenight Sandy H said...

Such a beautiful card with the delicate hint of colour of the blush card.
Only one post today but I was able to read the comments which, when there are four posts, I can't manage. Thanks again, Sue, for the inspiration of the last 8 days.
Take care everyone.

Jacqui oakes-alcock said...

Truly beautiful, thanks Sue.

Beryl Treble said...

A very pretty card.

Marie said...

Thank you Sue for another stunning card. There are now so many of your dies on my wish list
and it will be so difficult to get them in order of preference. I am still quite a newbie to blogging. I don't have a TV owing to a combination of low vision, very low hearing and OLD AGE
but I have managed to bring up some of your presentations on U-tube and they are a fantastic inspiration.

Myra said...

Hello Sue,
No I'm not on the wrong day! I did that once!!! I meant to post yesterday several times and was interrupted each time! I went to bed and forgot! So here I am to say two things really!
Thank you for a super eight days of 32 posts! Preparing those is a lot of work . Your Christmas Launch is beautiful! Each year I think I won't need any more and sure enough you come up with a whole list of things I'd love to have! Now its decision time! Many many thanks!
Secondly today's card is so pretty . Good to see a mixture of older and newer Dies. A real card too!! Lol!
Many thanks Sue,
Love to all,
Myra xx

This Treasured Friend Card would definitely be treasured by any friend who would receive it. All the details work well together and the easel card design is an added detail to make this card very special.

Dawn Holben said...

Sue this is one of the most stunning easel cards I have seen.
I love the embossed background and the dies and flowers.

Norah McPhee said...

Good afternoon Sue and the Wilsonettes,
Oh this is such a pretty card Sue but boooohoooo you have used the one colour that i loved and can't get anywhere in the blush. Please, please and pretty please ask them to make that colour again as i know that there is an awful lot of us out here that it was just thee perfect shade of pink. Anyway i'll cry at my computer on my own here and keep going about the beauty you have created with the blush and pink card. What a beautiful card for so many occasions and definitely one that would be appreciated by the recipient. The pretty poppies looks so lovely sitting on the bottom of the oval(whey hey i have my double pierced oval set, yippeeee) just finishing it off so nicely. What a great emboss you have achieved with that embossing folder flower, you can see every bit of it's texture shining out. Thank you flower for a lovely, widely versatile card that could be made in bulk, just changing up the flowers for different events.
Love and crafty hugs to all the Wilsonettes
Norah (Glenochil)
