Under The Weather

Hi bloggers!  I have to admit, this one is for me today!  I have been battling the dreaded first cold of the new year and it has been a doozie!   I am pleased to say, that I have finally turned the corner and I am now on the mend, but I was beginning to wonder if I was ever going to get here! LOL  On to the card, I started by creating a background for the tree.  On coconut white card, I used one of the clouds as a stencil and sponged Tumbled Glass distress ink over it while moving it around.  I added a few die cut clouds on top from the Rain or Shine set.  I cut the Majestic Tree next, cutting the trunk out of tan card, then lightly sponging Vintage photo over it and the tree head out of green card (from my stash) .  I lifted the leaves upwards and glued the trunk on top, then into the centre of the background.  I used the Garden Gate set to cut an extended fence and glued it in front of the tree.  I cut a wide white frame using the Double Pieced Noble Squares, added mounting foam and attached it over the scene.  I added more of the fence to the top of the frame like it had been continued out of the scene.  I also added a single cloud and the sentiment was cut out of sky blue card and added to the top of the frame.  White on white mats and layers completed the card.  The finished dimensions are 8" x  8" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Lovely card Sue, very beautiful., love this tree.
Elaine, you must be so frustrated at the lack of progress from Andrews care team. I hope this situation is rectified very soon for him and he is in less pain. You know you have my total support, you can email me at home to chat if you want to when you have time. My thoughts and prayers are with the whole family .hugs to you and Andrew.
Helen I'm glad you are well enough to make a card, it was a complicated relationship wasn't it.
Littlelamb I renewed my licence online too, it was so easy.
Donita, happy days ahead fir you holiday ung with your dad in Florida, enjoy yourselves.
I had a callback from the Admissions Sister yesterday, she has transferred me to another surgeons list, her go-to surgeon. I need to see him in clinic so sending an appointment then we can move forward. I think that is progress, Howrah.
Steph, hope Andy is feeling better, hope you don't get the dreaded virus too.
Take care everyone, stay warm and well. Hugs to all, esoecially our many poorly and missing friends.

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, such a beautiful card today, but sorry to hear you have been caught by this dreadful flu, I wish you a very quick recovery, you sound like you are on the road to better health.

Pam I reiterate all you have said above, good news about the other surgeon, let's hope that you get a quick appointment and get it sorted out very soon, yes I know it is daunting but it has to be done. Elaine, my thoughts as always are with you, Hellen and Andrew, xx

Donita have a wonderful time in Florida with you Dad, it is such a beautiful place.

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

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Hi Sue. Sorry to read you've been so unwell. This beast has caught so many people by surprise and literally floored them, having no immune system due to the strong meds I take these nasty bugs really frighten me but life is life and there is no escape of they want you they get you, but I'm equally pleased to read your slowly getting there, it's not nice to think that our bubbly Sue has lost her bubbles, but this sample has made our poorly friend's feel a little better I'm sure of that, but you can all keep your blog bugs to yourselves thank you very much πŸ’–
talking of which I hear movement from my own bug beast bless him !
Unfortunately due to the beast entering our home my time has been taken up with filling hot water bottles, heating wheat bags and sympathetic smiles and no crafting, so this gorgeous tree is still waiting to be planted on to card so I enjoyed watching Lisa play the past few days with this lovely die. It's a good job you make so many samples Sue, so at least I hope the pressure was lifted for you and that days get brighter and better soon that goes out to all you poorly blog buddies.
Sending extra big hugs (from a distance) and lots of bug free love xxx

Rosemarie said...

Morning Sue, I am sorry to hear you have not been well, but pleased that you have now turned the corner. Take time to pamper yourself. Love today's card, would cheer anyone up.

Pam I hope you get your 'op' date soon, the waiting is horrible.

Elaine, thinking of you and Andrew and your family. I hope Andrew gets the treatment he is entitled to very soon. The whole saga sounds disgusting and very stressful.

Hi Sue, a lovely card. Your tree is beautiful. Sue sorry to hear you have had a bad cold and glad your now on the mend.

Fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, sorry that you were smitten by the bug, it seems to be a particularly nasty one this year and it takes everyone ages to get rid of, so glad that you are on the mend. It got me just before New Year and I am only just properly over it - my husband of course has escaped completely:-) Hugs for everyone that is still suffering.

I love this card and it would certainly cheer anyone up to receive it. I have this tree and it is very useful not just as a focal point.

Pam - glad things seem to be moving for you regarding your op.
Pauline - safe journey and enjoy your time in South Africa.
Elaine & Rosemary - I don't know what has been said, maybe the comment has been taken down but as far as I am concerned there is no need to apologise for anything and Rosemary we will miss you.

Myra said...

Hello Sue,
I’m so sorry you haven’t been well and the “ dreaded lurgie, “ got you! I did laugh at the doozie!! So many people have been unwell and it’s taken ages to get over it. So pleased you are on the mend!
I’m going to admit here and now that the tree die just didn’t appeal to me at all! I’m still not sure but it’s growing on me!! Lol.
I’ve no idea either what has been said but I’m sorry people are hurt!
Elaine it’s lovely of you to write an apology. Rather typical of you I think as you seem a lovely lady to me , who has an awful lot on her plate! Maybe too many medical details upset some people! I don’t know, I’m just guessing. However , love to Andrew, you and all the family!
Rosemary - as Stephanie has said - don’t punish yourself . We will miss you if you do that!
I know life is very hard and serious at times but we still have fun too!
Sending love to you all!
Myra ( Friend of Maureen! ) xxx

Lisbeth said...

Hi Sue. I am pleased to hear you have turned the corner and are on the mend. Love this tree. It was on TV yesterday with Lisa and I was surprised to see just how versatile it is. It was suggested that the bushy section could be cut in white for a wintery effect and I quite liked this idea.

I hope Sue and everyone else with flu and cold bugs here banish the buggers and feel tip top soon. Helen glad to see you are better.
Trees are always a beautiful gift of nature. I don't have this one...have the other which I just used yesterday for a cheerful little card swap. Both trees are wonderful.
Elaine, you have a lot on your plate. I certainly hope that Andrew gets his treatment ASAP and you can see a quick improvement.
Donita, have fun in Florida....my sister is visiting there now...say "hi" if you see her, ha!

Good morning Sue and like everyone else on the blog I'm sorry you caught 'THE BUG' maybe your body was telling you to slow down for a while. I don't think you know how to take it easy but do try.
I think I only have one tree die and I'm making a list of 'must haves' ready for taking with me when I get taken out to spend my Christmas vouchers.
The card is beautiful and would work for most stages of life,
Love to all.
