Good morning Sue. Due to 6pm being meal prep time and 8pm I'm snoozing on the sofa I'm just catching up with the recorded shows and all I can say is absolutely brilliant and it's so lovely to have you back. The Pixie powder and Cosmic Shimmer glue background is just amazing and the colours you chose to compliment the Aged To Perfection frame were perfect, talking of perfect this sample is just that and I'm looking forward to watching the tutorial. It's such a fun but clean looking sample I just love it. I'm so looking forward to actually watching today's shows completely guilt free as everything that is usually left to Saturday was done yesterday so I'm going to sit back relax and have a wonderful day ☺
I'm so pleased you can see what you're doing now but don't worry Sue your work was just amazing even when you couldn't see so well lol. Enjoy your day today knowing you have many many admirers tuning in watching your every move - no pressure then lol. I just adore your new April release and im soo excited to see what ive hoped for ☺ congratulations to Wednesday's card winner what a stunning card to own well done.
Sending Saturday hugs your way Sue xxx

Suzzette Yandle said...

Such a fun and sweet card. Glad you added the red cherry an item I especially like in my pina colada drink. Another drink for your tall glasses would be a "silver cloud" mixed with ice cream instead of milk. Wish I could do dairy again. Oh, well. Sending Easter Blessings.

Pawprintx4 said...

A fun, clever card this morning. I made one of my favorite cards with this set for a friend's landmark birthday. I need to make one something like this morning's.
I have been watching Hochanda and had to order the stamps & embossing folders. Does anyone know the plate sandwich for the 3D folders on a Gemini? Sue mentioned the information was on their web site but for the life of me I could not find. I know a number of the Wilsonettes do have a Gemini.
Congratulations to SHart our lucky duck today
A good weekend to all & Happy Easter too,
Stephanie K

Hi Sue, sorry to be so late but it has been a very busy day. I have only managed to snatch snippets of your shows but have them all recorded so will be able to enjoy a catch-up tomorrow or Monday. This is a really nice CAS card with a twist - of lemon, that is :-) and with a cherry on top what's not to like?

Good Easter Day to you Sue and to all the wilsonettes.
A great card Sue and took me back to last year when I was drinking a Pina Colada in Fuertevantura.
I love all of the card and the little extras like the lemon twist and the cherry are just delightful.
I watched you on my PC last evening and wish you Congratulations on your 'sell out' which was very well deserved.
Congratulations to SHart on your winning gift.
