Lovely card Sue, gorgeous. Perfect for Grandads and Dads alike
Congratulations to lucky winner Lesley, you will so enjoy.
PP aka Yvonne, it was a joy to see you back and so early too. I'm so glad you are feeling a little better, it must have been a really bad bout this time. As you can see from the comments you have been missed as has your pal Laine, hope to have her back soon too.
Sam has explained many times, her method of posting is to fix Sues instructions in her mind, so all I can say Sam in the words of Ole Blue Eyes, You Do It Your Way. I too find it useful.
Cheryl, Maureen and Sandy, thanks for your comments, I have a lot of problems with my leg since my ankle op, I don't want to start that off again. Maybe I will try the diet route first but it may also be the gall bladder problem she said. It has never been mentioned before.
Pat, your new profile pic is a fabulous display, you are so clever, was that the prize winner.
Carmen, those heels on your photo are as tall as you, oh to be able to have the legs to wear shoes like that.
Dawn hope your furbaby improves soon.
I think the twins were so surprised when Will-I-Am came over to talk to them, they had watched him ride down the concourse on a luggage trolley and he spotted them. They chatted for quite a while, said he was great.
With your little stories about gifts from zoos and holidays you brought back lovely memories of my Nanna, she used to keep hers in the china cabinet (they all had them in those days) with her best tea set and glass dishes, and she could tell you who gave what, where from and when. They were her little treasures.
Well the hug basket is open, free for all, sending some to missing and poorly friends too.

Good morning Sue. Fabulous card, the background looks very interesting and I will watch the video later to see how you made it.

GM Sue. Great card. Love the background. Happy weekend.

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, beautiful card today and I will watch the video later to refresh my memory.

Pam I reiterate all you have said especially the free hugs basket that we can help ourselves xxxx

Off to a 'Groovi' class this morning so must dash to get ready, being picked up at 7:30 by one of craft friends.

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

Hello Sue,

Great card for anyone who into DIY, you would just need to change the colors if it were for a lady. Great video and as always so informative and inspiring.

Hope your weekend is going well.

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Hi Sue. Adorable. The first time I've ever loved DIY tools, at last tools that don't become an obstacle course for us when the men decide to play. I really need this collection as I know they'd go down a storm at market and with the inspiration that comes from your samples you can't help but make cards to make people smile, a subject that hits the mark with most and always a story to tell behind the subject. I don't feel I've made much sense with this post as I'm rushing before 4paws starts singing to hint she's ready for her walk ! And I'm still tired - anyway I think you can say I love today's sample.
Sam has a perfect reason for her way of posting and a perfectly legit reason for listing step by step and I don't see why she has to keep 'defending' her reason it's personal and not something any of us would want to go through, so Sam, sweet lady you do what you need to do to help you xx
Many congrats to our Wednesday giveaway winner the best gift you could ever wish to receive its totally amazing to see your card in real life - enjoy ☺
That leaves me to send my usual love and hugs and hope you have a great Saturday xxx

Janice K said...

Good morning Sue,
Thank you for reminding us of the faux leather technique, it's such a useful one for the men in our lives and looks great on your card today. Your pin board die intrigues me (it's already on my wishlist), I can see possibilities for using metallic threads with it; I must be patient; Christmas is coming! X

Marion Scott said...

Great card Sue, I remember when you first demonstrated the faux leather technique - a fun background that is very useful for male cards in particular and is a perfect backdrop to today's card.
Congratulations to Lesley Sx.

Dear Sue and Crafty Creatives,

That is the best Best! Now that everyone says who they'd give this card to, I remember that my sister has a Handy Ma'am business. Plus a nephew and Dad who do woodworking. Good enough reason to buy this set.
Congratulations Latenight SandyH for lowering your cholesterol.
Well done Lesley!
Diane Green, wow, you are one creative lady, making cards, making soup, making cake!
Marie P, Now you get to live in a motel for a while and rest up! And eat out! With your stuff in storage.

Hi Sue
A great card for men. We need all the help we can get when it comes to making men's cards.

Princess Pixie! said...

Morning Sue
Oh how ingenious. Love it. That peg board is really going to get a hammering in the future (tee hee - do you get it)?
Your tool dies are brilliant. And there are so many blokes who are either power tool mad, good at DIY or think they are brilliant at fixing/making things so these dies sort them all out!
I have a few girlfriends who are proud owners of there own tools so the possibilities are endless x
Thank you everyone for your warm 'missed you' messages. I didn't realise I was so popular! Lol. For those of you missing Laine she is fine. She is full of busy (as my nan used to say) but her i pad is broken. We haven't spoken much whilst I have been under the weather but the odd text has been exchanged. Hoping to speak and catch up next week x
Congratulations Lesley x
Sam - I think your comments are genius x
Pam - my word - need to sort out all your ailments! I think you need a 6 week break somewhere hot - bet you wish I was your doctor with a prescription like that x
June - I lingered on your red carpet for a while just to soak up the adoration x
Beverley - just wanted to say I thought your cards that Sue showed on HOCHANDA were beautiful x
Marie - as if moving is not stressful enough. Hang in there x
Trish, Elaine, Sandy, Carmen, Lynne, Fluffy, Maureen, Myra, Littlelamb, Pat, Helen, Diane, Donita and anyone else I have overlooked love that you missed me - cheque is in the post. Lol x
Seriously - lovely to be back, thank you everyone for your kind words x
Off to a friends this afternoon then will be dumped back home after being fed and watching Strictly. The house is completely upside down at the moment as Jake is busy preparing for his biennial fireworks extravaganza next Saturday. He really goes all out with great enthusiasm but it is at the expense of anything else that may need attention!! Happy days x
OK Wonderful Wilsonettes - I will love you and leave you. Have a super Saturday and God willing I will 'see' you tomorrow x
Happy thoughts and lots of love to everyone especially my blog besties x
Take care

Hi Sue and everyone

Love this card. Even though it quite masculine, I think it’s one of my favourites. Looking forward to watching the video soon.

Yvonne, I hope I receive your cheque soon, as I have someone coming out from Yorkshire Water tomorrow as our workman broke the top off the stop tap outside. I hope they don’t charge too much! It was stuck solid and snapped when he tried to turn it off. Luckily it snapped before he could turn it off though! Or we’d have no water! Our house is in chaos as the moment, we even have a toilet in front of the Fire!! A brand new one, but it’s still a toilet! There’s a sink, tap, cabinets and piping too, but that’s still in the packaging although it’s still like an obstacle course here. Oh well, think I’ll just do some die cutting and keep calm. Only joking Yvonne about the money, but you know that. Glad you’re ok. Well enough rambling. Sorry. Not even read all the comments properly will catch up soon.

Congratulations to Lesley.


Love Helen xxx

Hi Sue, love this card, the tool set, the peg board and the faux leather background. I think that means I like it! It has been a long time since I visited the faux leather technique so thank you for the reminder, it really is too good to be forgotten.

Lesley S - Congratulations on being this week's Wednesday Winner, you will receive an 'enchanting' card - enjoy.

Myra said...

Hello Sue,
I love this card even though the Grandad in this house is not terribly practical! Our sons Grandad's weren’t either! Mum did what DIY she could as do I . So I think these tools and today’s card are brilliant . I’d just send the card to someone else! Lol! The tools are like your kitchen utensils - just perfect! I’d also rather forgotten about the faux leather technique! Time to revisit that too! Thanks Sue!
Congratulations to Lesley - you won a lovely card!
Pat L - I wondered if that was your Prize-winning Arrangement ! It’s beautiful. As I said yesterday - a talented lady!
Yvonne - I wasn’t expecting a cheque ! I thought cash!? Lol! It’s so nice to have you back where you belong!! - think that’s part of a song! Lol!
Donita I hope your Stamping Day went well! You’ll love that red Glitter Kiss!
Sam - when you go on holiday I’ve no means of checking on the names of the Dies Sue has used! You are providing a Service to us as well. Craft Jo - I , too, love Pinterest and it’s not everyone who uses it . It’s nice to Pin Sue’s Cards not just for ourselves but to spread the word!
Elaine - you are knitting a penguin! Is it a big penguin as in King Penguin or are you taking the biscuit!! Lol! Haven’t seen those for ages!
I’m sure I’ve forgotten someone or something!
However, lots of love!

Hi Sue, As I have never tried your faux leather technique, I can't wait to watch the video and give it a go. Brilliant diy card for the many thousands who indulge in this. However, no one in my family seems to have heard of it, except for me.I dabble a bit, so maybe I'll make one for myself. Love the cute little tools. Congratulations to Lesley. Hugs xx Pauline

I have not posted here before, but thought it was time as I love watching all your vides Sue. This is such a cute card and perfect for my dh as he is a great diyer. He has a work shop and can fix most anything and neighbors are always asking him to repair something for them. This would make a great card for his birthday in Feb.
I have never tried the faux leather technique so will be practicing with that.
Can you tell me how are the oxide ink pads different than the distress pads? Are they alcohol based?

Viki Banaszak said...

I love the background you did on this card! Perfect and rugged.
