More Than A Double Day

Hello there fellow crafters!  It's not a double day today, it is much more!  After looking at my file of Christmas cards, I have decided that the only way to get them time on the blog is to do a mass showing of them from now through Christmas Day.  I am hoping that you will enjoy seeing them all, however,  I won't be doing mass write ups on them, just pictures.  If you have any questions about any of them, just email me and I will endeavour to answer them for you.  I hope you enjoy them!  All for now, Sue x

Yvonne, so glad you had a good night out with your boy. now you have your Mum & Dad with you, your cup runneth over. Don't overdo it but do enjoy your precious family time.
Lynne, your little granddaughter must have had a wonderful time with you looking after her. I hope she feels better for Christmas and I know Santa will take special care of her.
Myra, no scream needed, you arrived. If you speak to the rest of the Naughty Niners, please pass on my best wishes to them all for a very Happy Christmas and New Year.
Alison, well done on your mile swim, I have sponsored you for the next Olympics, go girl.
Ah Donita, so sad that the Penguins weren't appreciated, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
Marshmallow and Olives, you have some strange friends, that would never have crossed my mind.
Elaine, I know you are busy but please don't overdo it, don't want you poorly over Christmas, my best wishes to all of your family.
Daily hugs abound for all, especially our poorly and missing friends.

Dear Sue and Merry Card Makers,

My votes go to the Gingerfolk and the tone-on-tone Wonderful Christmas Time. The one with the stencil and paste was interesting, but I couldn't figure it out. It might go well with an Industrial Chic corner.

How did I miss Alimecca's mile swim? Well done!

Thanks everyone for your friendly presence on the blog.


Suemac said...

Good Morning Sue. Ohhhh what a lovely surprise... all these gorgeous cards... and what you have done with the dies are unbelievable. I have quite a few of these dies but I would never have thought of using them as you have.... and when I have seen what you have done with them I have thought ... Ohhh my God why didn't I think of that...... you are a true designer/crafter Sue. But never mind I can store all these ideas till next year. Kind regards Ann Toppcards Leeds

alimecca said...

Hi Sue,
What a lovely surprise- all of these fabulous cards to drool over! For some reason, I love the gingerbread people one! Thank you Sue.
Just got back from Sainsbury's and thought it would be quite quiet - WRONG!!! It was absolutely heaving All I kept think was " these people should all be at work!" Anyway got everything I need for the big day except some bread which Dave can get later and the nice thing was my Nectar Points paid for it all!!How good is that? I save them all up for two years, as every other year we go to my sister's. Mind you, we now need another bottle of red wine as one fell off the kitchen worktop and shattered all over the floor - what a blooming mess!!!
Pam and Donita, thank you but there's one thing that's certain - an Olympian I'll never be!!!
Sending love and hugs to all, Alison xxx

Suzzette Yandle said...

Awesomely beautiful creations. I especially like the aqua and white one. You certainly were extra busy this year making Christmas card samples. It is a pleasure to see what you put together for us crafters to enjoy and get inspired each day. Thank you so much for enriching my life through card making.

Hello Sue,
What a lovely selection of gorgeous cards! Like them all and have Pinned them but I have a couple of favourites. You make gorgeous cards .it would have been a real shame not to show those!
Well, House ship shape and Bristol Fashion! Just a little bit of ironing to do! If I wouldn’t keep washing there would be no ironing! Lol!
Shopping being delivered later.
Thanks Pam re: the Nine! Saba is currently on the Ferry on her way from Germany to England! They then drive to Yorkshire - a long journey!
Don’t work too hard everyone!

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, gosh, imagine if the postie brought you this many cards for several days! It was a lovely surprise to see all of these today and I really like them all but especially the last one using the stained glass robin, definitely a design to keep for next year.
I hand delivered my final cards last night so hopefully I can now relax for a couple of days. I really should be tidying up my craft room as in the last flurry of card making I wreaked havoc but I think I will just shut the door for a day :-)
Hoping everyone enjoys the week-end and the final run up to the big day.


Snuffy Snoo said...

Hi Sue
Wow!! are really spoiling us with this selection!! I love all of them especially the gingerbread men one!!
Much love

Barbara Gosden said...

Hi Sue
My comment from this morning seems to have disappeared! I think I said how beautiful the cards are, and I love how you've framed the stained glass robin. Also, I am thrilled to have won 2 of your dies from a competition run by my local craft shop - Christmas come early!

What a lovely selection of cards. I think they all have their own merit but I'm a sucker for gingerbread men both seeing them on cards and eating them! LOL!

Have a great day

Steph Cotterill said...

Hello Sue. It seems the 'Blog Beast' ate my comment at 6.15am hope he had chronic indigestion !! Good job someone text to see if I was okay and why hadn't I left my daily comment, if only I had a working brain I'd remember what I'd written but no hope of that so here we go again. It was an absolute delight to wake up and see so many beautiful samples rather than our double two-fer Friday and a few more delights to 'pin' that can't be bad. There's only one I'm not sure about though Sue, I know it's different and you enjoy changing things up but your Stained Glass robin sample is lovely but the design is so gorgeous it needs a background of some kind to show your beautiful design, I know we all have our own minds and opinions but I do adore your SG dies when they are bought to life with colour. So I'm done, and if the Blog Beast eats this comment I hope he's up chucking all night lol.
Hope you've had a lovely day Sue and thank you for today's lovely surprise xxx

Pawprintx4 said...

Lovely surprise this afternoon as I grocery shopped this morning (mad house), then put it all away (difficult) and then finally fixed the hubby lunch and shoved him out the door plus started laundry (never ending). Looking forward to a cup of coffee at the computer and reading the blog so WOW, how beautiful they all are. I am so glad you got them out of their files so we can all be amazed.
I love them all...probably enjoyed the robin because I have the die and I always love to see new ways of using my dies. I love the stenciled effect in the frame. I also love Silent Night. They are all so perfect so these two have barely an edge over the others. You had an outstanding selection of Festive Dies this year. 2017 was a very successful year as far as Sue Wilson dies go. I think you have a high mark for 2018. Thank you for everything.
I hope everyone is about ready as Christmas is around the corner (actually it will arrive in the UK before it does here).

Muriel said...

Hello Sue and all
Like most others I was expecting two cards today and got a lovely surprise! They are all so different and all beautiful. I love the drama of the blue stars and the gingerbread men but will be pinning all as inspiration for next year.
How quickly the lead up to Christmas has disappeared, so much still to do, prioritising now and what is not done won’t be missed I am sure.
We are doing an Italian Christmas dinner at my daughter in laws family on the day, my job is the lasagne so will get started on that today and glazing the ham for Boxing Day here.

Marie from Longridge said...

What a glorious collection of cards Sue. You are a wonder-woman for sure. I was so carried away that I knocked my cup of coffee off my desk and had to rescue soggy papers that shouldn't have been on the desk anyway. Splashed a bit on the wallpaper too and the carpet I'm sure although I can't see it.

I wish you Sue and all the Wilsonettes a very Merry Christmas and a Happy and HEALTHY New Year.
