Gorgeous card Sue, love it. This is a favourite star.
Thank you for all your concerns yesterday, i didn't get my internet back on until I got home and my daughter Kelly sorted it, Virgin grrrrh.
Carmen, you deserve such a lovely birthday, I think you are Soecial to more people than you think. Love the sound of the red shoes, think I will call you Dirothy.
Can't wait for the twins to get back with all if their stories, it will probably be Ryan who will be storyteller, Jack will want to be on his XBox, he would have packed t if he could .
June, great job, if you want more practice at sorting craft rooms I will give you my key.
Elaine, hooe you are managing okay, how us Andrew with his new meds, thinking of John and Mary too.
Rosemary, hiw are you doing Hun, hope you are back soon.
Hugs to all especially our poorly and missing friends, Laine and Yvonne, hope you are back soon.

June Smith said...

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, a beautiful card today and the radiating star was the die I won on the blog launch (seems ages ago now), but love the card.

Pam I was so pleased to see your comment today, I was worried that you were not on here, but I know what you mean about Virgin, outs kept dropping yesterday, I expect they had major problems but pleased all is OK with you and I reiterate all you have said.

Well the craft room is finished with the exception of filling away some of my latest dies - yes Sue I got the 3 Noble Hexagons as well as a few others.

I was so annoyed with myself because I used the Tool box die set recently to make my son's birthday card and then couldn't find the nails.........I looked everywhere but alas I thought it had gone to that grave yard in the sky or even the bin by mistake. On my table I have a plastic basket and I keep a lot of things that I use everyday in it, I have some foam packaging about 4"x3"x5" and I stick all my pokey tools, tweezers, pins etc. it this (very handy), anyway yes I will get there in a minute......well I moved the basket this morning and low and behold there was the little 'nails' die, I was so pleased because I hate losing things, so the first job this morning is to put all the dies away. Sorry about the long story, have you ever lost dies......

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

Great card Sue.

Beverly Fuchs said...

Hello Sue,

The Radiating Star is such a beautiful die and cut it gold, it makes such an elegant, yet festive card. And even better, it's a shaker card. And the nice thing is, it doesn't have to be just for Christmas. I used it to make a card for the Fourth of July.

I'm glad you found your nails June, that had to have been a "nail biter" wondering what happened to them.

Have a nice day.

Beverly

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Morning Sue. Running late at the moment feel like half my day has gone already, like our Sam I'm use to getting up just after I've gone to bed lol so not got round to enjoying your video yet but believe me I can't wait to see you put this special sample together. It's one of those you'd put into the 'special' category one you'd take so much time over to give to that certain someone, that's got me thinking Sue - handmade, shop bought, or don't give at all in Sue's world ? My special list and only family I have get shop bought - I love them too much to hand them a 'Steph creation' lol.
So box set to record tonight and love and hugs are on their way so that's me done. Enjoy your day Sue whatever your plans xxx

Jan Jay said...

CHERYL Brown said...

Hi Sue,

I bought this die last Thursday (along with ta few others) so I am super excited to see one of your creations using the same die although I did not buy the shaker cups which were not available in the shop I went into.
Crafty day today to play with my new purchases.

Gentle hugs and healing prayers to all our poorly Wilsonettes, I hope your day becomes kinder to you.

Love 7 hugs

Muriel Kelly said...

Hello Sue and all
Love this card ! The radiating star die looks so good and the frosty frame tag for the sentiment is perfect. you have tempted me to attempt a shaker card with this one, the gold and white are so classy and so Christmassy too. The video makes it look so doable, on to the net for a bit of fun after this I think.
Yes June, I lost one of the little bits of my Christmas shadow box set but after a long search with magnets and two very willing grandchildren we found it. Same as you, really dislike losing bits of my die sets.
So glad you are ok Pam,
Hugs
Muriel x

Ann said...

Good Morning Sue. What a beautiful star you have shown us today, not just one but two, that's counting you of course because that's what you are a shining radiant star. Just love the card.

Pam glad to see you back I didn't realise you had internet problems, we are with Virgin but havnt had any technical problems as yet. Glad you are sorted you were kmissed.

June my lovely Sister also makes cards, she is the worst one I know for losing the smaller parts of her dies. She tries to be so careful but to no avail. The only thing with her is that she waits for a while to see if they turn up, she then replaces them with a new one only to find the lost one later. It happens all the time ! ! ! Love her to bits though. Kind regards Ann Toppcards Leeds

Donita Naylor said...

Dear Sue and Crafty Companions,

This really is a special card for the most special person or family on the list. All that gold! All those stars! There are even stars in the frosty frame tag! This is such a fabulous card, Sue. It mesmerizes.

Pam, I'm so glad you were not having another close call but that your internet was on the fritz. Would we someday have a need for cards that say "Hope your wifi feels better soon"?

Carmen, Congratulations on having a husband who buys you a Platinum for your big round birthday. He might not have any flip flops, but he sure has a big heart!

And to you Alison, what a husband you have! I had to look up pearl anniversary to see how many years. Wow, 30! So happy for you. Here is my imaginary anniversary card: It's the jeweled heart, and inside the heart-shaped treat cup are several sizes of freshwater pearls. Happy anniversary to both of you.

Enjoy your Tuesday, dearie pies!

Love,
Donita

What a gorgeous card, Sue.

June, I know what you mean about small dies. I am still looking for the "A" from an alphabet set that I lost the first I used it. It just jumped out of my hand! I now have to use the "V" and alter it. Why couldn't it have been the other way round.

djones said...


Love this card; right up my street!!!

June; I know just what you mean about
tiny dies!!! Used a new poinsettia die
yesterday, it lept off the cutting mat,
all the dies were in the air!! Found
the larger ones easily; the 2 small ones,
nowhere to be seen. Was I cross, as I hadn't
even used them, then found them stuck to
the front of my top!! Also lost a "6" which
wasn't too bad as I use the "9"!!

Tracy Stitt said...

Hi sue.
Love this card. And I love ur stars this year. I’m still using last years lol

June. Top tip!! I have a tea tray lined with a magnetic sheet on the bottom so when I’m using a few dies when I’m finished with them at the time I pop them in there till I get time to put them away. That way they stick and can’t get lost. Hope this might help xx

Deb E Isle of Wight said...

Love it again....

Pawprintx4 said...

What a beautiful stunning card today. I do say, I love gold mirror card and the stars work so well for Christmas, New Years, excellent report cards, and any number of other occasions.The video makes it all look so attainable....of course.
Carmen, thank you for the tip. I must say, you have hit the jack pot on this momentous birthday. Good going.
I do love Donita's idea of get well cards for wifi. I actually think we should have one in our stash....maybe Phill could add it to one of his sets.
Everyone, hang on to all those tiny dies. Get them on magnetic sheets and don't take your eyes off those sneaky little bits when you use them.

Hi Sue
A very lovely card again today ,loving the edges ,,had a very busy day today so far so will watch the video tonight after tea,

Happy Anniversary Alison xx

Donita, love your imaginary card xxx

Pam well done to Kelly sorting your internet out , the thing is we get so used to being able communicate with each other so quickly ,then when it goes belly up well its just not good and very frustrating .
Andrew was not well last night and it is treatment day today so we were all walking on egg shells hoping treatment could go ahead , I have still not had a txt from him but i do know the reception is very poor some weeks , so it makes it a long and worrying day.

Big huggles to all especially my besties and all poorly and missing friends .

Hello Sue,
I think today's card is beautiful, the die is stupendous.
Pam, glad to see you back where you belong!!
Carmen, forgive me for belated good wishes and let me borrow your red shoes please, don't let Saba have them. I overlooked your big round birthday (wish I knew what that meant), I only have very angular ones now!! Have you bumped into Carolyn (my niece) yet? She's now in Toronto ha ha.
Donita, I think that's a great idea - a Wi-fi Get Well Soon card, you better patent that quickly!!! Have you seen Carolyn yet?
Alimecca, congratulations to you and Dave (other male names are optional ha ha) on your Pearl Anniversary.
Tracy, what a brilliant idea for the quick storing of dies until it's time to put them away and I'll certainly implement it. I've found mine stuck to my elbow with double sided tape before now!!!
Elaine, I hope Andrew got his treatment today and that all is well.
PP and Laine, I hope all is o.k.
Love to all

Hello Sue,
I’ve got a bit of catching up to do!! Today’s card is lovely and I have that Die set! It looks stunning! I’ve actually been crafting all afternoonusing your Dies mainly - with the odd stamp here and there! I cut little Poinsettias from a sheet I’d covered in Red Glitter Kiss and they look lovely! I’m sorry I’m terrible at remembering names but they are from the little arch of Poinsettias with the three separate flowers! I love them!
Carmen - belated Happy Birthday! Sorry I missed it!! I’d wrapped a virtual red handbag to match your shoes too!!!
Alison - Alimeeca - isn’t your husband a star !! Hope he hasn’t beeen upset by his change of name!! Lol! What a lovely surprise. Many congratulations!
Pam - I’m glad it was only technology that caused a hiccup yesterday! I wonder what the twins liked best about New York!
June - I’m always losing small Dies - thankfully only temporarily! Usually stuck to something daft! Tracy - great tip!
Well I think I need to go and tidy up the mess I made before dinner! Be good!
Love to all, PP and Laine - really missing you and concerned about you! XX

Beautiful card Sue. I haven't been able yo watch the video yet. Internet problems but will watch as soon as I can. I got my tiny alphabet dies out of my box the other day. All on a magnetic sheet as that's how I store them. Wanted to spell Super Star for my granddaughter's card. The only letter miss was S and I needed that twice. Still haven't found it and it was on a magnetic sheet for storage. Very annoying. Glad you are ok Pam. Echoing your comments and hugs to those who need them.

Hi Sue,

A Star shaker card made by a Star of crafting it cannot be anything else than a gorgeous card!
The Twinkle Twinkle embossing folder is so beautiful and has created an eye catching background; while the gold and white combination has given the elegance that any Christmas card should have it. Love it.

Pam – Dorothy will be my English name then. Thank you. Hope you’ll share all the stories with us.
Elaine – Hope Andrew was able to have his treatment today.
June- Who never lost/misplaced a die is not a real crafter, I think :)
Donita – My husband has a big heart full of love for our son and me. I am a lucky wife, for sure. And by the way, love your imaginary anniversary card and “feel better soon” one.
Stephanie – You are so right ... 4 friends from work (they are more than coworkers) gave me today a gift card for a well known North American craft store. For a crafter, even a newbie like me, it’s the perfect gift.
Dianne G. – Thank you.
Maureen – Ask your mailmen to keep an eye on a parcel from Toronto. What do you prefer high heels or the flats, both brand new, size 5. Does Carolyn need a guide? Maybe she can talk to my boss to give me the rest of the week off, paid of course.
Myra – Thank you for the red handbag, so kind of you. You sent me a virtual present while your friend Maureen asked for my shoes ...now we all know who the kindest one of two of you is :)

Hugs to you all,
Still a newbie to Craft / not longer the newest, or the only Canadian Wilsonette
Carmen - Dorothy

Latenight SandyH said...

Stunning card using the Radiating Star die. Love shaker cards.
Alimecca, hope you and Dave had a very Happy Pearl Anniversary. Congratulations to you both.
June, I lose small dies on a regular basis. I've wasted so much time over the years searching for runaways that I think I need a die cutting booth in my craft room.
Take care everyone.
