Happy Weekend Sue. It was so rewarding to see so many daily bloggers in your winners list yesterday, many congrats to those we see everyday enjoy your gifts ☺
What a lovely sample, your new edger is so pretty Sue. This almost reminds me of your samples from way way back before CE and during the Spellbinder days (hope you don't mind me saying this) it's just plain and simple but with the Sue Wilson touch.
Sending love and hugs to you this Saturday xxx

Love it in the spare bedroom, so fresh and organised. Just have to sort out the garage so that my little car can return. Lots of stuff gone- feels very good.

susyjune said...

Some of us don 't have time to spend on the internet replying to blogs everyday, Its a shame that some of your bloggers seem to resent it if someone wins a prize if they are not a daily blogger. May I say that if we even look here we are probably card makers, and therefore probably spend a fortune on Sue's products anyway. I know I do.It seems the people that used this blog to depress everybody and talk neverendingly about health issues have gone to be replaced by people full of jealousy that someone other than a daily blogger may win a prize. By the way I did not, But would like to say well done to all those that did

lydia jordan said...

Morning Sue,
Thank you so much I was thrilled to have won a prise. Congratulations to all of the other winners.
Lovely elegant card today, will watch the video later when my Sainsbury's delivery has been.

Izzy said...

Hi Sue,

This card shows just how versatile the Jennifer die is and I now understand how you made those inner borders on Wednesday's lovely card - congratulations to Judith on winning it...

susyjune - we don't resent "new" names winning but we do get to know the regular daily bloggers and come to regard them as friends and who wouldn't be thrilled that a friend won a prize!...I don't have time either to trawl through all the different blog sites, this is the only one I leave comments on because I just love Sue's work...

Morning Sue,

I was so thrilled to see my name as a winner, and those of lovely people who I have got to know on your blog or have met personally through meet ups.
Congratulations to everyone who has been blessed to receive a die from your latest launch.

A beautiful card today, just loving Jennifer die each time I see it.

Congratulations also to Judith on winning Wednesday's card.

Susyjune....Some people might get depressed reading of others health issues but we are all sisters here on Sue's blog, we have got to know of each other and their families over the years and we ae always here to support and offer comfort even though we are miles away. Sometimes that is just what some people need.

Love 7 hugs

Donita Naylor said...

This is the first time I've seenHeather as a double agent. She's not only a frame and tag but also an edger.Very nice! Also, who would have guessed that yellow and gray look so elegant together.
Congratulations to the winners, but I have to say again that we're all winners because Sue designs such wonderful dies and gets our creativity flowing by showing her ideas for using them.
It's nice to see the name of a friend among the winners, and the daily commenters do grow into friends. Everyone has the same amount of time, 24 hours a day, so it reflects well on loyal commenters that we use some of our precious time every day to support Sue's numbers against her competition, encourage her above-and-beyond efforts for us, help each other see things and send smiles around the world.
Happy weekend, everyone..
Best,
Donita

Oops Jennifer, not Heather!

I agree with your comments about the depressing comments susyjune. I stopped commenting myself because of it. I still look in on Sue's blog though. Hopefully it has returned to the happy one it was.

Princess Pixie! said...

Morning Sue
Love these colours. Once again you demonstrate the brilliant versatility of your dies. Such a pretty card. As always you have nailed it Sue. The video is on my hit list of things to do today x
I can see why some of the comments could be misinterpreted as jealous jibes but it is really not the case. In the past there has been a notable leap in the number of comments during Sue's launch. Those numbers tend to dwindle somewhat afterwards which means that Sue's blog, which we all know is the best, drops in position. It would be fantastic if folks could just pop in once a day and leave a line of appreciation or even one word as a gesture of thanks for all of Sues amazing work and generosity. This blog is such a loving, caring and supportive 'family' which is why people feel that they can 'share' such intimate details of their lives. I understand that this may be considered as 'oversharing' but I don't think this has ever been meant to offend or upset anyone. Supportive words from fellow 'Wilsonettes' has often been such a lifeline for some who are going through tough or dark times.
It is a joy to see new names and in time I would like to think 'newbies' begin to feel that they have a wonderful group of friends. We all have one thing in common - we all love crafting and we all adore and admire Sue. That aside we are all very different and lead very different lives. That's what makes this blog such a rich and colourful group of incredible individuals to be very much a part of x

Hi Sue. What a very clever idea to extend the die in this way. Jenifer is such a pretty die anyway and this gives it even more scope.

Afternoon Sue, first of all thank you for your kindness and generosity for making lots of your bloggers very happy.
Congratulations to all of the lucky winners including today's.
Like the colours used for today's card1. I don't have the Jennifer die but can use some of my others in a similar way. Hugs xx Pauline in S.A.

Fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, love the style of this card even though it is rather an unusual colour combination. I think that I would use a lighter shade - probably lemon - but it is all personal choice which is why we can take your ideas and make them our own. You really stretch our imaginations when showing how to extend and vary so many of your dies. Thanks for the video and love how you moulded the Nasturtium flower.

Judith T - Congratulations on being this week's Wednesday Winner, enjoy!

Ann said...

Good Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes And a brilliant morning it is for me and all the other happy lucky winners. Thankyou so much Sue for my gorgeous win.
Today's card is no exception to any other card samples you post to show us. Beautiful colours..beautiful dies and a super wonderful designer.
I have to agree with Donita,PP,Izzy and Cheryl. I joined this lovely family of bloggers nearly two years ago now, in this time I have never met any of you.... but through this daily blog I feel I know quite a lot of you.
We are all friends and crafters..... and what are these people for..... they are there for each other.. whether it be happy posts or sad. And its good to see these bloggers.... who we know and recognise each day....have a little extra happiness with a win.
I am one of those winners and I want to congratulate all the other winners.. also I have to say comiserations to those who didn't...but there is always next time.... and if you don't comment you can't be expected to win. Best Wishes and hugs to all. Kind regards Ann Toppcards Leeds

Hello Sue,
I’m very late and I almost didn’t comment at all! Perhaps I’d be no great loss . However, I would miss the Blog and many of the lovely ladies whom I’ve never met but almost feel as if I have. I don’t go around Blogs either . Sue , Particraft was the first blog I read because I saw you on TV. I love your work, you know that! Today I came very close to never commenting again!
Thank you for another lovely card! I don’t want to be forced off for congratulating friends on winning! I was brought up to be polite.
Love to all , Myra ( Friend of Maureen! ) xx

Take care everyone.

CCM said...

Hi Sue,

What I love the most of today's card is the color combination. The Jennifer outer area is not my cup of tea used in this way,I won't use it at all for this card. Another change will be Victoria backed in yellow. Hope you don't mind that I created my own version of your card. Thanks for showing us how to turn the centre of Jennifer die set into a border and how to make that beautiful flower. Enjoyed your great video as always.

Congrats to Judith, enjoy your prize.

Hugs from cold Toronto to you all and special hugs to all missing friends
