My Favourite Cards Of 2017

Happy New Year all!   I have trolled through all my folders from 2017 and selected the cards that I was particularly fond of throughout this past year.  The list, however, never includes any Christmas cards of which there were quite a few that I really loved, but I did promise that I wouldn't post any more until mid year or so! LOL  There is no particular order to these at all and you might agree that there is quite a wide variety in the styles as well!  There is everything from clean and simple, to really girlie to distressed and grungey, I like them all!  Let me know what your favourite is amongst the bunch!  I would love to know!  All for now, Sue x

My SIL and nephew go home this morning, I will miss them. We had a lovely morning at Lickety Splits yesterday, got to try their new delicious Christmas cake ice cream, my favourite Marzipan and Rose Turkush Delight, so yummy. Lots of chat, laughter and family, lovely. Diane, thought of you.

A good morning and a Happy New Year to Sue and all the Wilsonettes. Fabulous cards, I can see why they are favourites. If I had to choose it would be the second one as it has a bit of bling, a bow and a flower - not to mention I love how the die is inset, but there are also a few others which really caught my eye. I would have loved to have seen your favourite Christmas cards though, as I'm having withdrawal symptoms!
Pan, congratulations to Kelly and Bryan, wishing then happiness.
Donita, sincere sympathy, having such mixed feelings is very difficult, I'll message you later.
I raised a glass (of apple juice, as I was in bed by 10 ready for work this morning) to Tracy and Graeme and all our other blog friends going through sad times. Wishing everyone health and happiness for 2018. Sue xxx

HAPPY NEW YEAR SUE COLIN and HEATHER.

Firstly I'd like to say a great big thank you for all the work you put into the blog last year. All the inspiration you shared the tips and continuous help you always provide to those that ask. And for all the amazing dies you gave us last year. For all the Giveaway cards and gifts your heart shared with us. You certainly are an amazing lady with the biggest heart ever and I'm proud and honoured to have found you all those years ago. I've learnt so much from you and ready to learn some more. So bring on 2018 and the first new designs of the year.
As for having to pick a favourite its just impossible, I adore the blue and white beneath your comment at the same time the Autumn designs with the barrow burnt orange and browns are amazing as is the Shadow Box. The Grunge samples shows the new die collection off brilliantly, so it's impossible to share a favourite as all are so perfect and beautiful in their own way.
I'm so looking forward to seeing what's in store over the next twelve months, to think you started small with floral dies and to see where you've got to in the design world just amazes me, through your designs you've helped us grow as crafters.
I'm now sending love and best wishes to all that enter this gorgeous blog today and wish you all a healthy happy and crafty 2018.
New Year hugs finding their way from a very dark but wonderfully quiet lane in Driffield to wherever you are Sue xxx

Happy New Year. What a lovely selection of cards! I would choose the first one and the one that says Dream. Very different styles but they both appeal to me.

but can't go without mentioning the stained glass card, love all the techniques ! x

Janice K said...

Good morning Sue,
Wishing you and everyone a much improved 2018!
Love your favourite selection, all are beautiful and, as you say, very different. I think my favourites would have to be numbers 1, 2, 7 and 8.
Looking forward to seeing what delights await us this year as you never fail to surprise and inspire, thank you.x

Happy new year Sue.

Donita Naylor said...

Dear Sue, Bringer of Joy,

These bear further study, especially in relation to the orphans. Why do they work? Why didn't the others? Thanks for putting them together.

I especially like the hummingbird and the last five, and of those, especially the Just Because, You Are So Sweet, and Love Blooms Here. Absolute favorite is Just Because. Or Love Blooms Here, because the colors look so good.

Doesn't it seem like 2018 just has to be better than 2017 was.

I would like to fall into step behind whoever struck up the band in praise of Sue. Not carrying one of those big drums, though.

Thanks to everyone who wrote. There is so much wisdom in this group.

love,
Donita

Happy New Year Sue - may 2018 be a happy, healthy and peaceful year for us all. What a great array of cards to begin the new year - all appeal in different ways but I am drawn to the grungy Dream one for no other reason than it is so very different and is not one I would think of making. Love it. Thank you for all your very hard work and wonderful blog - life wouldn't be quite the same without it!

Happy New Year, I think 1,3 and 7 are my faves

alimecca said...

Hi Sue,
Happy New Year to everyone!
These cards are all fabulous and thank you for sharing them with us. I think my favourites are the last 3 as I love the autumnal colours in two of them and the last one is just so pretty - love the shadow box dies. I also really like the cat one, just because it reminds me of my childhood cat!
Donita my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family- sending special love and hugs to you xxx
Hope everyone is feeling ok after the celebrations! Sending love and hugs to everyone on this lovely blog. I hope that 2018 is a much more peaceful year worldwide. Love Alison xxxx

June Smith said...

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, and a Happy New Year to everyone. Well what a wonderful selection you have given us today Sue, everyone a diamond in their own right. I think for me it has to be the stained glass humming bird, you were the first person to bring out the stained glass dies and even though there are a lot on the market now yours for me are the best there is. Thank you so much for all that you do, your inspiration is amazing, looking forward to this years new releases as I am sure that we are going to be thoroughly spoilt again.

Pam I reiterate all you have said, and congratulations to Kelly and Bryan, Now you have to buy a new hat.

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

Izzy said...

Hello Sue,

Happy New Year to you and all Wilsonettes!

I can see why these beautiful cards were your favourites, some of them were my faves too and inspired me to make my own versions...still haven't dipped my toe into the grungy style but have bought some cheesecloth so any day now I'll be having a go.

Donita - I was talking about the Platinum mangle!...lol..not that I'll be winding wet bedding through it though, just dies - you must have had mangles over there too before somebody invented a washing machine that spins the washing dry..?...and your Mum sounds very much like mine...'nuff said on that subject

Anne said...

I am not even going to try and chose a favourite, Sue, as they are all great.

Happy New Year everyone.

stitchingranny said...

First I would like to WISH YOU ALL A VERY HAPPY AND HEALTHY 2018.
Sue, a lovely selection of cards, though they are very different to the ones I would have chosen as my favourites of the year. All you cards can give me inspiration and after looking at your card of the day I go away with a headful of ideas.
Julia's background show is my latest inspiration and I have been rooting for all the backgrounds I haven't used for a while.

Hugs Helen x

I love the simplicity of the stained-glass humming bird (I do miss seeing them - lived in Southern California for several years and always enjoyed their visits :) ) and the grungy 'dream' appeals a lot too.

P Austen said...

Hi Sue, A very Happy New Year to you and your family, not forgetting all the regular bloggers. I hope it's going to be a good one for everybody. Such a lovely set of cards which will provide me with lots of inspiration in the future.
Went to bed before 10pm last night as I have a nasty cold and my husband has 'man flu'. However we were woken up by the fireworks so wished each other happy New year and went back to sleep when they'd finished. How sad are we?
Enjoy the rest of your day. XX Hugs Pauline


Rose in Chester said...

Hid Sue,
A HAPPY and HEALTHY NEW YEAR TO YOU AND YOURS and all the Wilsonettes. And a BIG THANK YOU to you, Sue, for sharing so much inspiration and lovely projects, and helping us to improve in our crafting all the time. When I think of how I started a few years back there's no comparison.
And you continue to never fail in your daily posts - to look at your blog is part of my daily "getting up" ritual.
I haven't got a favourite but well, you know don't you - as a cat lover it's got to be the fish bowl card (in the fab and fun category).
Apart from that, they are all exquisite. Special mention has to be how you have tackled the Industrial dies - simply gorgeous. I can gaze at that "grunge" ALL THE TIME...
Hugs, Rose

These cards are gorgeous and I can’t understand why they are some of your favourites.

Hugs and best wishes to everyone who is sick or infirm at this time and hope this year is a better year for you all.

I have a daughter with fibromyalgia and she is not able to get out of bed sometimes, she is 18 years old and I feel helpless sometimes. She has good days and bad and since Xmas has been bedbound. I love her so much and hope next year will be better for her too.

Scottydog said...

Happy New Year Sue & all wilsonettes! I love all the cards for different reasons, howeve4 I’m finding myself particularly drawn towards the 2 grungy backgrounds, which is a bit of a surprise! Perhaps 2018 is the year I find my grungey self! Thank you Sue for the inspiration.

No one can say Sue Wilson only does one style. WOW! A proliferrie [I hope I spelled that word correctly] of wonderful, beautiful and creative card designs. Did I miss your soft colored vellum stain glass hummingbird? I am looking at it and I am not sure exactly how you got those lovely soft and shadowed colors behind the outline. How did you do that? Happy New Year!

Littlelamb said...

Like all the cards Sue especially the last two. Happy New Year to you. Thank you for all the love,y things you have brought us this year. Especially the Industrial dies etc., Looking forward to see what lovely craft things you will bring us in 2018. Pam congratulations to Kelly and Bryan, Echoing your comments today. Elaine sorry you have had to postpone dinner today but hopefully can have it at the weekend. A Happy and Healthy New Year to everyone on the blog.

Hi Sue,
Love all the cards but my favourites are Maroon Thanks, and the ivory/black 'just because' and the wheelbarrow card and the garden frame card. It is so hard to choose because I keep going back over them and thinking 'no, I like this better", 'no, this one' I like them all. Happy New Year Sue and all the Wilsonettes.
Cheers,

Happy New Year, Sue, to you, your family and to all Wilsonettes.
What a great way to start 2018! You spoiled us again, and for sure we like to be spoiled. All these are beautiful cards. The first one caught my eyes immediately ... maybe because I don’t remember seeing it on the blog before. I especially love the colors and also the design and the elegance of it. Scrolling down, I recognized the rest of the cards and once again I fell in love with the soft colors of the hummingbird. Thank you for the daily dose of inspiration over the year,Sue. I feel so lucky that I found your blog because I learnt so much from you. Also I really appreciate your generosity of weekly giveaway cards, comment games and die launches... I bet you already have a new collection ready. I should start saving money, right?
Lots of hugs from
Still a newbie to Craft / not longer the newest, or the only across the pond Wilsonette

The first card "Thanks" tied with "Life is a Garden" for my favorites. They are all beautiful and hard to pick just one. Each stand out individually and can understand why you chose them. As 2017 ends and 2018 starts, I want to take a moment and say "Thank You for all the inspiration you share with each of us."

I hope the New Year brings you health, happiness, and the creative juices continue to flow. Please make more A-2 size cards and 5"x7" cards. The postage is so expensive here in the US to make the larger cards. Thanks for thinking about my request.

Good morning Sue and and all,
I love all of the cards you have shown today Sue. If I absolutely HAD to choose I would only say "Eenie,Meany, Miney, Mo" so that wouldn't help much would it?
My new Great-Granddaughter who was due on Dec. 29th. is still keeping us all waiting and I was really surprised yesterday (Jan. 1st.) when she turned up at my door with her Sister and her Mum. I hadn't seen her for 2 or 3 weeks and she looked HUGE and very uncomfortable. I have made a card for her and it was right there on the fireplace but I don't think she saw it.
Today I hope to start the mammoth task of sorting out my craft room. I will probably procrastinate for a few hours first.
A belated HAPPY NEW YEAR to all.
Marie P.
