Good morning Sue. Beautiful card, love poinsettias in any form - except the real thing due to allergies! It's my excuse for being able to buy your dies, if I can't have the real thing at least I can make them.
Congratulations to Pam H, 6am Pam - are you sure it's not you? Hugs to all. Sue xxx

Helen Bell said...

Hi Sue and everyone

Lovely card today. Will watch the video soon. This card is really crisp and bright. Love the embossing folder, from a distance it reminds me of bees .... I can make out little bodies and wings. I KNOW that there are no bees just poinsettias, can anyone else see what I mean I Wonder?

Pam, I think Frances (Fluffycat) is right. I too looked back through Wednesdays comments and can see no other Pam, I even checked the ‘anonymous’ ones. I do hope we are right and it is you that has won. (No offence to any other Pams out there!). I hope your pre op goes well. Is the op for gallstones? X

Love Helen xxx

Lisbeth said...

Hi Sue, such a simple idea, but what a very pretty result and I would have to agree it makes a great card for Christmas.


Maureen Killen said...

Hello Sue,
This is just a wonderful card with a beautiful sentiment. I love everything about it as it's clean and crisp and even! Perfect!!!!
Pam, good news about the pre-op check and hopefully the actual operation is not too far behind. It has to be you that's won so congratulations. Have you ever heard of a senior moment, please read Hazelnut instead of Walnut - I was eating a walnut at the time ha ha.
Elaine, Oh I hope they get Andrew sorted and can give him some relief. I was a staid, church going, sedate member of the community until I started hanging around with those who shall be nameless, no they won't, they are Jess, Myra, Saba, Patricia, Hazel, Margaret Corgi owner, Diane Green and Norah. I've never been the same since!!! lol.
Pat L, how is Sarah, is she going to GOSH sometime soon?
Helen, I'll have to check out the embossing folder to see if I can spot bees, or if you are hallucinating again lol.
Laine and PP hope you are both well.
I'm at Last night at the Proms in Newcastle's City Hall tonight. "Daft as a Brush" run it and the chap who set up "Daft" sold most of his belongings, his £16 million mansion and put his money into buying mini buses to transport cancer patients to hospital for their treatments after his wife beat breast cancer. She later left him as she didn't want him to do this!!
They pay nothing for the service and he fund raises as he's used his millions to do this so far. He is truly amazing and a lot of people are so thankful for the service. So tonight I will be waving my Union Flag and blowing my whistle with the rest of them. We'll be raising the roof with Land of Hope and Glory. It's a wonderful evening.
love to all - yes I mean all!
Maureen (Myra's fiend) xxx

Maureen Killen said...

Helen, if I squint my eyes and look - YES, I can see bees!!! xxx
