Gorgeous card classical elegance
Congratulations to lucky Ethansnana, enjoy your lovely card.
Rosemary, I hope the appointment comes quickly, the waiting is always so hard. As Donita said, you kicked Cancers butt once, this time we will all kick for you if it's needed. Sending you lots of love and hugs, you have a lot of friends on here rooting for you.
Sharon, hang on in there, it will get better for you. Big hug heading your way.
Elaine, I'm happy the eye is improving. Hope you don't have to wait long for the powers that be. Hope Andrew and Helen had a lovely Anniversary and got out for their meal. Good news about Mary too, all seems to be going well, just need good results fir Jihn too.
Cheryl, hope you managed to get sorted. Do you have your strawberries and champers ready for your tennis.
Crewe Trish have a lovely weekend at Siverstone.
Well work is still unsettled. The H & S meeting with the management was going to raise the issue of where in the building would be a safe place for me to be if the dust gets into the air conditioning system during the cabinet moves, let's wait and see, the car park would be my bet.
Have a lovely weekend everyone, hugs to all. Thinking of all of our missing and poorly friends, Laine and Yvonne, hope the eyes are getting better fir you both.

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, beautiful card, I am going to watch the video later looking forward to that.

Rosemary, fingers crossed the appointment comes through quickly, special hugs.

Congratulations to Ethansnana

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

Morning Sue from the most luxurious cottage (barn) we've ever stayed in. This would be my dream home, unfortunately a pipe dream so will have to make the most of this week ! I'm just thankful that although this tiny village has no gas running through it, it does have WiFi - jackpot, who needs a gas supply as long as we can get onto the blog, I know my priorities lol.
Yet again a gorgeous Wedgwood looking sample as you mentioned at the start of your video. The striplet is totally adorable, it's quite plain to look at in the packaging but when it's cut, boy oh boy does it bring it to life, absolutely gorgeous. All in all Sue, a beautiful card in a beautiful colour scheme, what more can we ask for.

Many congratulations to nathansnana on your Wednesday win you must be delighted.
Sending much love n hugs for the day as always xxx

Thank you all so much for your support.
I phoned the hospital yesterday and they said they had not yet sorted out clinics for August!! What !!!!. And that I will have an appointment in August sometime. Hope it's not an aggressive form if it is cancer. My last one spread to my lymph nodes.
Still no point in worrying won't change anything. Have appointment in August for results of brain MRI EEG and EACH. Crikey I must be falling apart I'm only 58!!
Love and hugs also to Donita

Pawprintx4 said...

I also saw this one on You Tube but love a refresher and reminder. Sometimes I think life gets in the way of my crafting!
I love the Wedgwood feel to this card....started wondering if the colors could be reversed so might have to try that. This is one of the perfectly lovely Sue Wilson cards we always enjoy so much. I love that if I don't have every die used making this card, I can use the tutorial and dies I own to create a likeness in the style of Sue.
Congrats Ethan's Nanny.
A great Saturday to everyone. I am meeting an old friend for lunch and putzing around as she calls it.
