You Are So Sweet

Hi bloggers!  Aqua and white for today's card offering and probably a bit more like what you usually expect from me too!  I started by cutting the Columba Gemini die in to the sides of a piece of aqua card.  I cut a slightly smaller piece of white card and used the other die from the Columba to cut the edges so that they layered up and sat on top of the aqua card.  I also used the decorative die from the Jennifer and cut it into the centre of the white card between the edge die cuts.  I added mounting foam to raise it and attached it over the aqua piece.  I cut the Scarlet die in white and layered it up in the centre and added my sentiment with an aqua mat.  To the sides I made a Nasturtium cluster with aqua flowers added and an aqua dimensional flower in the centre of each of the clusters.   White and aqua mats and layers were used to complete the card.  The finished dimensions are 6 1/2" x  9" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Lovely Card Sue, so gorgeous . Frilly and pretty.
Merry Christmas Jacob, such a brave family, God bless them all.
Elaine hope you got the dies you wanted, your John is amazing.
Maureen, hope you had a lovely visit from the girls, are 3 of the 9 more manageable lol. Hope they are well.
I watched the Rememberance Day service on tv yesterday, so many brave souls lost and wounded. It always brings tears to my eyes..
Today it is 52 years since I lost my Mum, she was 42 years old and mum to 6 children, my sister was 1 year old . Loved and remembered every day Mum.
Thank you all for your unwavering support, it is like a lifeline. Not usually so vulnerable but it is a bad time of year fior me.
Please help yourself to my basket of hugs, there is always plenty to go round.
Thinking of all poorly and missing friends.

Hello Sue,

I echo the above comments regarding colour. There’s something so pretty and delicate about it, especially when used, as you have, with such lacy dies.

Have a good day,

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Hi Sue what a beautiful delicate sample and my most go to shade when I need a baby boy card. The way you've married these dies together is so beautiful, an exquisite way to start the week thank you.
Pam, can I suggest you try and put your mind to something nice and relaxing like craft for example. The more you think it over the more you write about it, the more you relive it in and out of work the more it's going to churn you up. Put it aside now and think of something else until you know what's happening. Leave it at work and should the time come you need to fight your union will help. And just be mindful that you never know who reads any blog you never really know your friends. If you've ever mentioned Sue's blog and people see what you've said about your boss etc it wouldn't go down well. Just tread carefully and maybe don't think allowed. Let it be now Pam and concentrate on something pleasant ☺

Sending Monday hugs your way Sue and hope you have a happy day xxx

June Smith said...

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, wonderful is the best thing I can say about this card, it has my favourite Aqua colour and the Columbia Gemini die set which work so well on here, love it and will definitely be trying this one out. Your so good to us Sue. xx

Pam I reiterate all you have said above, I know it is very hard for you at the moment, try and stay strong and positive, don't let them beat you, there are so many friends on here and others who are supporting you, your health at the moment is the main thing and worrying about the outcome of work is not helping you, special hugs.

I too watched the TV (the BBX News via my Computer screen) yesterday at the Cenotaph, it was so moving and to see all those people young and old who braved the weather and everything else, I feel so proud of all of them. There were so many ceremonies all over the world going on. It is such a shame that there is still conflict in so many countries, I pray that they find an agreement soon.

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

Hi Sue and everyone

A gorgeous card this morning. Lovely colours and so delicate and lacy. The nasturtium cluster is so well shown off here. Beautiful!

Pam, thinking of you and sending a great big hug. My parents died in October and November ( different years) but it’s not a great time of year. My Mam was only 62, which is far too young, but yours was only 42. So sad. 24th November this year it will be 25 years since my Mam died and I still miss her. In fact listening to the radio whilst washing up the other day I had tears streaming down my face as a song made me really miss her. I suppose we all feel vulnerable sometimes, no shame in that! X

Love Helen xxx

Although I got the all clear on my mammogram it transpires it’s came back into my bones. I’m very positive at the moment but my biggest blow was that my ivf treatment for having a baby is now off the cards. Thank u for letting me share. I won’t babble about it everyday on the blog but just wanted to let u all know xxx

Donita Naylor said...

Dear Sue,

This could be two cards! So delicate and pretty. I wonder if the little flowers on the Nasturtium Cluster were cut from a different color or if their centers affect the color so much that it just looks different.

Columba and the Cluster really do work well together.

Pam, my heart goes out to you. The time of year brings so many conscious and unconscious reminders -- smells, season, length of day, sky color, traditions, music, even just the date -- that jump out or add up. It's double trouble when stress at work piles onto the most difficult time of year. Did you notice how passionately Stephanie Cotterill wanted you to keep your thoughts on enjoyable things? You could get a massage! Have a pedicure! Go to a movie! Come home from work and jump straight into your jammies! Quick, somebody, we need one more! I hope you'll give yourself some extra care this week. I hope you get lots and lots of real hugs.

How can it be Monday again already!?

Love,
Donita

Hi Sue. Well, you have certainly thrown everything at this one. All of the elements are so ornate and lacey. Perhaps a little too much for me although I realise that when you have so many die to choose from it is difficult to know exactly when to stop.

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Sam likes to keep step by step instructions to keep on her pc files. If there is a particular card she really wants to look back on all the tools Sue has used from colour card to the die used to the last pearl is all there to remind her. It would be so beneficial to brand new crafters too if Sam's post was way at the top of the days post just in case they would want to try the sample but worried about not being able to do it Sam's exceptionally helpful instructions would be invaluable alongside Sue's instructions ☺

Good evening lovely Sue and her crafty crew!

What a wonderful SW classic, it has all the elements we love in your cardmaking.....apart from a stick pin but even I would deem that to be overkill:-) Love the colour palette, the cool aqua blue is so lovely and fresh. The dies you have chosen are fantastic and work really well to create this design, very impressive, love the frills and the Nasturtium Cluster is simply awesome, the effect it has in finishing the card off is amazing. What I love about you Sue is that you have the ability to cater to all tastes, from the traditional to the retro to the quirky or grunge, every style of card is covered and all i can say is a huge thanks for giving me plenty of varied inspiration, its much appreciated.
Hiya peeps! Sorry for my absence over the weekend but i had a couple of seizures and had to avoid using my tablet because of the glare. Feeling much more human now and the added bonus is that my face isnt as swollen and sore as it was after my visit to the dentist....i’m Afraid that was only stage one of the treatment, i have more of the same in store for the opposite side of my mouth next week AND the probability of root canal treatment:-( , that will teach my to suck on sour fizzy sweets! The laughable thing is that i have only ever had 2 fillings before in my whole 45 years....at this rate I’ll be on dentures before my next birthday!:-)
Having real trouble with Darcey at the minute, she’s spending most of her time on my bed and when it comes time for her to go out at night to do her ablutions she is hiding under my bed refusing to come out, we are resorted to chasing her around the house and literally throwing her out! Its all very stressful, for us and her and I don’t know why she is afraid to venture out though it did start with all the fireworks last week....to make her feel more secure we’ve put our coats on and taken her for a walk until she has done the toilet then brought her back home to bed, really worried about her but given that she is 11 now i guess she will be more interested in sleeping than playing outside, don’t like to see her frightened though....
Pam, thinking of you today, its always hard on the anniversary of a parents death, so many memories and regrets that we didn’t have more time with them, your Mum passed well before her time and it must have been so hard for you all:-( big hugsxxx
Tracy, i am so sorry about your diagnosis, it must be a real body blow for you especially because it stops your fertility plans. I wish you all the best with your treatment and remember that we are here holding your hand throughoutxxx
Maureen, glad you had a fab time over the weekend, and remember, your not so much old as you are really ancient!;-)
Rosemary, sending hugs, hope you enjoyed Strictly at the weekend...I’m still missing Aston though but I guess i’ll Have to get over myself:-)
Love and hugs to all, particularly my blog besties

Hello Sue,
Today’s card is so pretty and feminine but it’s not one I would copy , or put my spin on! I never copy! I use your ideas as a springboard! Fallen on my face more than once! I love the colours but it’s too frilly for me! Sorry! As you know I don’t say that very often! Still friends? Hope so!
First of all - Tracy - I’m so very sorry this has happened to you! You will fight again because that’s what you do when faced with these trials and we will be with you every step of the way again. So sorry about the IVF though. Sending you lots of love x
Pam - I think we are all alike in so many ways - and we have good times of the year and bad times too! I’m sorry you are facing the problems at work when you have tough days for other reasons. Now Donita said I had to think of something else which would bring you joy and take your mind off things! Well have a Fry’s Cream!!! Here’s a big hug to go with it! Oh - you’ve got chocolate on my jumper!! X
Elaine - glad you got the Dies you wanted!
I’ve been meaning to say this for days and keep forgetting! I had a lot of lovely handmade cards for my Birthday , all of which I shall treasure. However I wonder if one was a First - Brenda - Littlelamb sent a lovely one made with Dies from Sue’s Launch which only finished last week!
Laine - sorry you have been unwell again! Very glad to have you back!
Started Christmas at After School Club today!!
Love to all, Myra ( Friend of Maureen) xxxx

Hi Sue,

What a gorgeous card, it really highlights the beauty and elegance of all dies you have used. I love the delicateness and the gorgeous colours. It's also one that can be adapted to use for any occasion, in different colors, of course.

Tracy – I'm so sorry to read your news today. Sending a gentle hug your way.
Pam - IThinking of you and sending lots of hugs.
Elaine – Glad you got some lovely dies. Do you remember that not long ago you wanted to give up making cards? I am happy that you changed your mind and I hope you’ll enjoy your new machine. A big hug for you.
Laine – Welcome back. Where is PP?

Hugs to you all,
Still a newbie to Craft / not longer the newest, or the only across the pond Wilsonette

Good evening ladies,
What a pretty, feminine card we have to enjoy. It is lovely...the color and the lace-like delicacy of it.
Everyone, please cheer up those who are sad and have a happy Tuesday.
