Birthday Wishes

 Good Sunday morning all!  This one is for my daughter as it is her birthday today!  While it isn't her actual birthday card, it is the sort of card that she likes, clean and simple.  She has asked me not to send a card to her this year as she is about to move cross country for her job and is already loaded to the gills as she puts it!  So I thought I would show her this one on the blog instead!  I started by using the Double Stitched hexagons and cutting five of them out of a piece of pixie powdered card and attaching them to a piece of white card.  I used Midnight blue, White Pearl and Aqua Lagoon to create the piece.  Next I stamped my sentiment in black next to them.  II cut the Petite Petal Striplet in black and simply cut away the outer frame leaving just the flowers.  I glued it into place next to the sentiment and over a couple of the hexagons.  White on white mats and layers were used to complete this very simple card.  The finished dimensions are 7" x  8" in size.  Happy 31st Birthday Heather!

The winners of this weeks Comment Game are:

Diane H!!!
Jenny H!!!

Congratulations all!  Please email me at to confirm your address and claim your prize.   All for now, Sue x

A lovely simple card. I liked it when I saw it on Hochanda yesterday.

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Hi Sue. Clean, simple and elegant is how I'd compliment this beautiful card for Heather and a very happy birthday to you, hope your move goes smoothly and you enjoy your new position. I remember you telling me all the best are born this day when you heard Lottie had been born 2 year's today ! Unfortunately I'm like you, you can't get to be with your little girl, and we can't see our little girl as she's spending her birthday in Lanzagrottie or LanzaLottie lol so we'll miss her so much and feel slightly sad I must admit, but she'll have so much fun on the beach so isn't that all that matters. I was given a 3 card order late last night so I'll need to crack on as one is another difficult make for the heartbroken parents. Plus I still have a show of yours to catch up with and I'm sure both you and Yanis will take my mind to a happier brighter place 😊 congratulations to our 3 winners named above, enjoy your gift.
I hope you have a good day Sue and maybe get to talk to your lovely little girl through the wonder of technology and my usual love and hugs are winging their way to you xxx

Chris Curry said...

A very stylish card Sue, very smart. Rally like it. Hope your daughter has a good birthday and an easy move. Have a good day. Xx

Hi Sue - your daughter will love seeing this card for her birthday I'm sure. I liked it every time I saw it being shown on Hochanda and have ordered this beautiful striplet die. Your demonstrations were brilliant Sue and I've also ordered the noble classic adorned hexagon - can't wait for them to come. Sending best wishes and congratulations to the three lucky winners today.

Hi Sue,

Gorgeous card, the hexagons are just divine.
I have a friend, who doesn't like getting cards, so I always send her a virtual one like this one for Heather! It's great, I just make the front like a lot of your samples, simple really, but I do hope it doesn't catch on!!!

Dear Sue and Happy Birthday Heather!

This card has so few elements, yet it's so intriguing. The mystery of genius!

Congratulations, Beverly Fuchs on having your cards featured on Hochanda and inside Sue's packaging. Your work is exquisite.

May the mischief-makers' merriment be all in good fun, with love prevailing.

I hope you enjoy your cruise, Pam, on the good ship Surgical Procedure. They wait on you hand and foot and all the furniture is very comfortable.

Love to all and extra if you need more,

Ann said...

Good Morning Sue. What a lovely card. I love the turquoise and white reminds me of my holiday destination. Turkey is known as the Turquoise Coast. And the pp magic background is there again. Happy to be home at last with my lovely cuppa. We got home at 1. 45 this morning. After coming through Turkey's strict security (they even took my plastic crochet hook from me which I normally take with me to do on the plane). I was most upset .... but I suppose they have their jobs to do . And after monarchs sudden collapse we were just relieved that the Turkish airline stepped up to take us all home. Again Thankyou all for your wishes for our safety. Kind regards Ann Toppcards Leeds

Rose in Chester said...

Hi Sue,
I love this card, loved it from the moment I saw it. Sometimes I think it is more difficult to make those clean and "simple" cards because the elements that ARE on it have got to be JUST SO . And yours always are.
I have a couple of friends who don't like busy cards and this one has given me some more ideas.
Hugs, Rose

Lisbeth said...

Hi Sue. I did admire this card when I saw it on TV over the weekend and was thinking of making something similar for my friend who has a birthday next week. The whole reason I got the hexagons was to use them to create the background as you have done here. I have the hexagon dies but not the striplet so I thought I might have to do one of your leafy die cuts with some other flowers. Hope you don't mind me inching your ideas.

Sue, I love this CAS card and admired it when I saw it on TV. Unfortunately I cannot afford the hexagons at the moment but they are very high up on the wish list. They are such a versatile shape and the samples that I saw were all gorgeous. I enjoyed all of your shows, you looked to be having fun and seemed very relaxed. Hope you are able to have a rest today.

Good Morning (here),
I loved this card on Hochanda like everyone else. I see it as a very flexible use card...can be a beautiful birthday card for Heather and yet can be a get well, thinking of you, or sympathy, whatever the need. Love it can use up those precious Pixie Dusted scrap papers and go together quickly too.I need more Pixie Dust colors, seeing this card. My local stamp shop(an hours drive)has started carrying some and I've bought all they have. Will point out they are behind, ha! Harder to get all the products used on the blog in the US. Mostly I order.
Ann, I am glad you are home. I know you enjoyed your vacation but still, you do need to get home. Glad another airline came to the rescue.
Congrats to our lucky duck winners. Everyone have a great day.

Hello Sue,
I loved this card when I saw it on Hochanda! It’s lovely! First of all , Happy Birthday Heather! I hope you have a lovely day .
I love the Hexagons - only have one set so far but it’s early days yet! It’s a really versatile set and I will use it a lot! Thanks Sue! Still got your first Show , with Leonie, to watch - been saving that one up!
We’ve had the family here today - not everyone - just seven of us but we’ve had fun . I’m now a bit tired but everything is cleared up!
Happy Anniversary George and Maureen! - Poor George has been so unwell today . Hope he feels better soon and has a good night’s rest! Florence Nightingale needs her rest too!! I wouldn’t brain him though - you may be locked up for that and miss at least the next one as well!!!
Ann - enjoy that tea! You deserve it!
Marianne - Happy Birthday!
Crewe Trish - every cloud has a silver lining! Glad you feeling a bit better.
Pam - hope you get a date soon and at a time which suits you.

Hi Sue and everyone

Lovely clean and simple card, but it still manages to Wow! I hope your daughter Heather has had a great birthday and that her move goes well.

Congratulations to all today's ( well yesterday's I suppose now!) winners.

I have to say that the Hochanda shows were great and you really seemed to enjoy them too Sue. It was also great to see Beverly Fuchs get the recognition she deserves as a really talented card designer. I have enjoyed seeing some fantastic cards she makes for a while now and I'm so glad that Sue has seen them too. I hope Beverlys cards get more airtime and maybe even Beverly demonstrating them herself.....?..... though I suppose Peterborough is quite a journey from the US so perhaps not.

Love Helen xxx

Marie P. From Coppull. said...

Good morning all.
A beautiful card Sue and I'm sure that Heather will think so too.
Reading all the comments make me feel I'm the only one who doesn't have a TV. I believe I can get Hochanda on my Desktop PC but tried it once and it didn't work for me. Maybe it's just as well or I would have to apply for an overdraft. I used to make porcelain dolls and although I haven't made any since my eyesight went so bad I still read the appropriate blog posts. Last week someone said that buying molds and using them were 2 different hobbies and I immediately thought that perhaps buying dies and using them may also be 2 separate hobbies.
Congratulations to the lucky winners and Happy belated birthday wishes to Heather.
Blessings to all.
