Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, a beautiful creation today, especially with all the rain we have been having lately.

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

Hello Sue, todays card is brilliant, love the coloured umbrellas, if we all had them in those colours we would be cheerful even if it was bucketing down, and one of my favourite sentiments. Off to watch the video, have a great day everyone. Bx

Steph Cotterill said...

Hi Sue. How appropriate is this bright happy cheerful sample, I'd much prefer the sun but it's lashing down here in Lancashire but nothing new there, never had so much rain since we relocated here, can only hope that the sun will eventually reach us but we don't hold out breath lol. Hope you're getting more sun than we are !! Love and hugs finding their way to you to thank you for a beautiful happy sample and for all the beautiful work you continue to share with us.
(My keeper was also amazed at what the 'wastecoats' did to his brain on Tuesday's sample - he wants to know if you knew it would do that brain thing when you sat and designed them) ? Xxx

Morning Sue.
Thank you a lovely card, very apt for this morning it is pouring.
I shall watch the video later, it is shopping day today.
Sue my new dies are brilliant, as you know I do not have a mobile or smart phone, just an old laptop so I cannot send any photos.
Take care and have fun Kitty.

A beautiful and colourful card and so apt for today with the rain we are having at the moment in Sussex, although sunshine is forecast for later. As the saying goes "rain before seven, fine by eleven" - might be right today!!
Thank you for the video

Hi Sue, a very appropriate card for our weather here too. It poured nearly all night here. Still, it's preparation for our return to the UK . Your choice of colours brightens our day though. Hugs xx Pauline in S.A.

Donita Naylor said...

Another fun video for a cheerful card with a sentiment that's so nice.

Are we getting more videos now? It used to be just Tuesday and Saturday, didn't it? Now it's every other day, it seems like.

Videos are such treats, so thank you.

Best,
Donita

Good morning Sue well I don't know how but here in Suffolk it is actually dry this morning but the umbrellas would have been useful earlier in the week! Nice cheery card and words love from Jackie xx

Izzy said...

Hi Sue,

Love the colourful brollies and that sweet sentiment..and is that a vellum cloud I see in front of the sun?...off to check out the video...

I must admit as a keen gardener that I love a wet Spring - that's when we need plenty of water to fuel growth and plenty of flowers in the summer and let's face it - a wet day is a crafty day so double whammy as far as I'm concerned!...lol

PAULINE and KAREN...safe journeys to both of you ladies...

ANN - hope the ECG showed nothing to worry about....

Ann said...

Good Morning Sue. What a lovely cheery card this morning Sue. And yes like everyone else very appropriate for this mornings weather.
Last year when we were on holiday in Turkey.... we went for a drink to a little bar..... it was in a little side street and only had room for a few tables outside. To keep the Sun off they had umbrellas.... of every colour... just like these.... strung a cross the street....they looked so quaint and what a good idea..... so this morning Sue your umbrellas have brought lovely sunny memories back for me
When are we going to get some nice weather and some sun. But if you saw every one walking around with umbrellas
like this you would be cheered up straight away.
Sending best wishes to everyone. Kind regards Ann Toppcards Leeds.

Tressa said...

A complete contrast to yesterday's card. Cheers one up on a dismal morning. Doreen may have said it stopped raining when she commented at 8.19, it's started again and I have to go to the hairdresser's in twenty minutes; I must remember to take my brolly!

Hi Sue

I think your card is quite a cheerful one and shows the sun is always there, even if hidden by clouds and rainy days can be bright if you have the right umberella!

Good Morning, Sue
Your card for today is just perfect for a rainy morning in West Sussex!
Judging by the comments it looks pretty much the same picture throughout the country.
I love the colours you have chosen for the brollies as well as the stitched detail and the raindrops!

Fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, I love this card and made my version just last week-end for a friend who was probably thinking that I had fallen off the edge of the world:-) The video was great as usual and I now have ideas for another similar card.

It has been very dark here all morning and has now started raining heavily - I will definitely need my umbrella when I go out shortly.

Safe journeys to all those travelling home.

PP good to have you back too and missing Laine as well
