Good morning Sue, were you able to sleep listening to all the drumming of feet from your winners doing their hapoy dance, like Riverdance.
I'm so happy for them, it is a wonderful gift. One I'm sure they will treasure .
Today's card is gorgeous, you make it look so easy to make up.
Congrats to our Wednesday card winner, Carolyn,what a treat.
Sandy G, what a wonderful birthday you had yesterday, enjoy your lovely dies.
Ann Topcards, you too with your birthday due soon
Elaine, I'm glad that Andrew is feeling and looking so much better. Good news about the coffee morning and your wardens change of heart. You should make her a thank you card with your new die.
Rosemary, FIL seems to be a little better, he is remarkable. Hope you are keeping well too.
Daily hugs to all, especially our missing and poorly friends.

Good morning Sue,
Beautiful traditional Christmas scene with your little stockings hanging from the fireplace. It is even more spectacular that it folds flat for posting. Congratulations to Carolyn. Yvonne xx

Donita Naylor said...

Dear Sue and Happy Crew,

The wreath looks better above the fireplace than hanging on one corner, I think.

Today was a big win for me, too, because my launch order arrived. So did a technician who cleaned and tuned my oil burner, and a chimney sweep added me at the end of his day. And none too soon. After being hot all week, today it finally turned chilly. I am so relieved that I'll have heat and won't have to replace the furnace. But after cleaning off the steps, the laundry/furnace area and a path to the oil tank, I could not imagine working, much less getting downtown, dealing with people and getting home. How do people keep up with chores and bills and trash day and keeping the car registration current, the septic tank pumped, the water filter on the fridge changed? Not to mention laundry and dishes. The chimney sweep guy commented on my untended yard. "Looks like it's been a while since you mowed," he said. I told him I was letting the deer keep it how they like.

Congratulations again to all the winners.

Crafty luggles.

Donita

Morning Sue. WOW Another beautiful fireplace card. Great idea to have it lie flat for posting but to be honest this is one of those cards you need in a box to hand deliver because they are so special. Congratulations once again to all the lucky winners . Sue you have made so many people happy with your inspiration, hard work, generosity and for the passion you have for your craft.
Best Wishes.

Rose in Chester said...

Hi Sue,
This fireplace is brilliant. And I really like it that it folds flat for posting. That has put me off in the past - 3D was very much 3D !
And the video, like all of yours, is VERY useful to show us how it's done. Thank you for all of them, can't say it enough...
Hugs, Rose

CraftyJo said...

Oooh, will certainly have to watch how that's done!

Hello Sue,

Loved this card the first time I saw it, thank you for a brilliant video, great that the fireplace can be folded flat, although I would feel I had to put this beautiful creation in the box.

Congratulations to all of yesterday's witness and to Carolyn today, enjoy your prize everyone.

Hope you have a lovely weekend, Brenda xxx

Maureen Killen said...

Hello Sue,
Love this card, it's so bright and cheery.
Pam hope you are feeling brighter this weekend.
Sandy, happy belated birthday.
Elaine, glad that Andrew's feeling so much better, that Helen and Daniel are having a great time and that you enjoyed your coffee morning. And to top it off you've won a die. Oh happy day ha ha.
Donita, you were slow there. You should have said to the Chimney Sweep man, "if you don't like it the mower's there for you". What a cheek he had.
Crewe Trish, never a truer word said, people matter more.
Congratulations to Carolyn, and I did congratulate all the draw winners yesterday, but if you missed it - Congratulations you lucky ladies.
Pat L, love to Sarah.
Laine, missing you.
PP, missing you.
Love to all

Lovely card today but will have to watch the video later along with the rest of the catching up I have to do. We've just got home from our trip to Germany. We have had a fabulous time and the weather has been wonderful but we found out the reason that our mobile usage is now free in Europe. We just couldn't get a signal very often - even in places we've not had a problem with before. I've had a quick look at the cards I've missed but haven't managed to catch up with everyone's news yet. I have to say I've missed some wonderful cards while I've been away and must prioritise which of the new dies I can afford to buy.

Thank you, thank you, thank you Sue for pulling my name out of the hat for one of your new die sets. I was so surprised and delighted to see my name on the list. Congratulations to all the other winners too and commiserations to those who didn't win this time. Congratulations too to the blog candy winners and also Carolyn on winning this weeks card giveaway.

Crafty hugs to all,

My SIL is in the semi finals for the National Border Collie Championship so am watching in on a live web cam. His run should put him in the final tomorrow. Fingers crossed for Mark & Lee(BC).

Good evening lovely Sue and her crafty crew!

What a lovely variation on yesterdays card, i really appreciate a video demonstration of the technique because i always prefer to watch a card being completed rather than reading instructions, it seems to sink in better that way:-)
Congrats yet again to yesterdays winners, particularly dear Elaine, what a massive pick me up for you, and of course Carolyn the lucky winner of that beautiful stained glass ensemble, enjoy everyone:-)
Had a super busy day today so i have admittedly just skimmed through today's comments, sorry peeps:-(, i have literally just sat down to watch Strictly on my Sky+ box and i plan to enjoy it with a citrus Diet Coke while sucking on some sour sweeties....my choice of refreshments, don't do wine anymore except on special occasions, giving my liver a well deserved rest after my VERY wild student days when i was barely sober!
Rosemary honey, hope you're enjoying the show and your wine, just seen Aston and Jeanette and I think they might be my favourites this year, my Mum tells me that the others have been rubbish so far but she thinks she's the female equivalent of Len Goodman....with the only resemblance being the grey hair, nasal hair and age!:-)
That's me for tonight honeys, short and blissfully sweet as I rush off to catch up on the next dances and X Factor boot camp....oh, can i handle all this excitement so soon after the blog draw?:-)
Wishing all my blog besties a very lovely weekend, hope the sun shines wherever you are and happiness abounds, big hugs and kisses to allxxx

Myra said...

Hello Sue,
Thank you sooo much for the video as this was a demo I missed on Hochanda! I won't mention Virgin .Media again!! Lol!!
There is nothing quite like an open fire - is there! My younger son has two - lucky him - but he bought a log basket for one which is impossible to carry when full! As his lovely wife said - should have dealt with that myself !! Yep! I don't blame her at all - he came home with it all pleased with his purchase !!
Sue - it's your attention to detail which amazes me constantly! Have just had delivered today the Poinsettia Corners! I love Poinsettias and felt I really needed those !!
Congratulations to Carolyn - you won a real beauty! Enjoy!
Donita - you need more than scissors to deal with a lawn you know!! Lol! It's hard keeping up when at work but when you retire you can't move quite so fast!!
Elaine - I'm glad that you're glad that we're glad!! x
Dragonsnap 2 - thanks so much for your commiserations! However we are all winners here and chuffed to bits for those who win!
Saba is on the last lap home! So far so good! Laughs on the way but it wouldn't be my lovely friend without laughs on the way! I'm being nice today!
PP - where are you! ? Did helping your neighbour take too much out of you? Look after yourself please! x
Laine - miss you too! Hope you are feeling a wee bit better! x
Love to all friends on the blog,
Myra ( Friend of Maureen!!)
