Now this is different might have to have a go at this later after work. Loved your show on Hochanda about the shy scrapes and buildings so much I got my pixie powders out and paused you to have a go at the same time. Obviously I didn't have the same mask but I made do and played along and had the time of my life. Thank you so much you have really inspired me and if I wasn't working this morning I would be playing some more. Have a great day, hugs xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Good morning Sue and many congratulations to Ursula on winning the most delightful Wednesday giveaway card, what a lucky lady you are.
Talking of lucky, how lucky are we to have you back live in our homes and I've enjoyed every single moment watching your democrats somewhere if your new collections. Who's spirits wouldn't be lifted when they received such a happy 'gift' as members of Paul's dba group will verify I'm into shakers cards at the moment but it's time to buy the cups as I wouldn't be making such a pig's ear of them with the cups (I hope) lol.
Enough ramblings from me so I'll send love and hugs and look forward to the video and watching more of your inspirational shows later today xxx

Unknown said...

Good Morning Sue

I so loved your shows yesterday you look really well. I love today's cute card and I thought with a little bit of clever handy work the die could easily be changed into a baby's rattle as well. i love when this can be done with dies.

I'm looking forward to overdosing on another day of crafting magic.

Good Morning Sue. Beautiful card today Sue. I could have done with this card a couple of weeks ago.... I have it saved now for reference just in case it's needed again. Enjoyed seeing you on tv last night unfortunately I only got to watch one show but the one I saw had enough content to keep me mesmerized all the way through. You are such a talented lady Sue.

Congratulations to Ursula on winning that fabulous card.... I really want to recreate this at home.

Sending best wishes to everyone this bitterly cold Saturday morning. Kind regards Ann Toppcards Leeds

Morning Sue, beautiful rainbow and clouds. I most definitely do need cheering up as I couldn't watch or record your shows here and everyone is raving about them. However, I managed to pre order CE decadent dots folder ( plus several others ) so I'm not too miserable after all.

Fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, a lovely card that would make anyone feel better. I love using the rainbow die and just by varying the depth of colour you get so many different looks. I have thoroughly enjoyed watching all of your shows so far and will watch the next one shortly whilst having lunch. So many beautiful samples on display and lots of techniques for us to try, you do work so hard that I was pleased to hear you say that you intended to do a lot of travelling and I hope you enjoy the holidays.

Alison - Hope you feel better very soon.
Ursula - Congratulations on being this week's Wednesday Winner, enjoy your beautiful card.

Pawprintx4 said...

Have enjoyed your shows today & yesterday. You always explain things so well.
I have the rainbow die and have made several birthday cards with it and the clouds. I find it easiest to line up the different colored "bows" if I kiss cut one in white and then glue on the stripes.
This is a darling card today. I need to make a hot air balloon shaker too. So many dies so little time. Love all your dies!
Have a great Saturday. We look like rain possibly here in SC but the temperatures are in the high 70's so pretty warm for February!
