Hummingbird Circle Card



Hi bloggers!  Today is a big day for a couple of reasons.  First of all it is our Julia Watts Birthday, so a giant HAPPY BIRTHDAY goes out to her.  And secondly, because it is another big birthday for my blog!  Particraft is officially 10 years old today!!  Can you believe it?  This blog was started a whole ten years ago (it seems like a lightning flash in how fast it has gone by!)  I would have liked to have posted a birthday card but it is a video day and the videos are already arranged on a schedule at CE for me.  I have a cute Hummingbird card to share with you though!

Don't forget Jamie Rodgers has one more show this morning on Create and Craft at 7am!








The finished dimensions are 7 1/4" x  7 1/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Morning Sue. Happy Birthday Queen of backgrounds Julia and CONGRATULATIONS Sue on the 10th anniversary of your wonderful blog something you must be very proud of, I'm not sure when I found you but I'm so glad I did. I actually noticed a card of yours on pinterest last week made a while ago (year's ) and I had to smile, because if you placed that sample next to one of today's samples it's like we've all watched each other's work mature, from your Spellbinder days to your designs now with your own brand - how crafting has changed.
Today's sample is so pretty with your choice of blue mixed with milk card I think makes the perfect base to show just how delicate and beautiful your own brand is. So thank you for you and Particraft, my smile when I'm low, and I'll support you for as long as you are here and I know many others will say the same. Celebrate and have a wonderful day, hopefully finding time to see what a great job Jamie is doing xxx

A very pretty card today, reminds me of the beautiful pottery done by Josiah Wedgewood. Congratulations on your blogoversary. I have followed you since quite near the beginning Sue, but where does time go? it certainly doesn't feel like 10 years. I am looking forward to the tutorial but as hubby is still asleep in the next room it shall have to wait for a little while longer. Right better go and wish Julia a Happy Birthday too.

Hugs Helen xxx

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, a BIG Happy Birthday to your blog Sue, is it really 10 years, wow they have flown past, Just think of all those stunning samples and inspirations that you have given us over those years, we are so lucky to have your blog. thank you. Also a great Big happy birthday to Julia Watts, another lady who has inspired so many of us. It is also my middle son's birthday today, there must be something about this day. They say everything runs in 3's.

I am loving this creation but will watch the video later, I so want to do this one, all the 3d dies that you have brought out over the past year are exceptionally creative and a joy to use.

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

Hello Sue,

Happy 10th year anniversary of starting your blog. I cannot remember how I actually found you on line but that was a magical day for me. I loved what you were doing and wondered if I could possible do something like you. I bought my first Spellbinders machine but had to order my dies from England as they were not sold here in the States. I had no idea what I was doing but I would watch and study your videos and your appearances on the craft channel and follow your blog and I have to say its been a wonderful journey.

Your card today is lovely. The design is lovely and I like how you have used your dies. The color is so clean and fresh looking. Will watch the video later.

Have a wonderful day.

Beverly

Hi Sue, a gorgous card in a beautiful blue which is rapidly becoming a favourite colour of mine. Many congratulations to Julia on her birthday and also your blog's 10th birthday - that must mean we have seen at least 3,650 cards, not counting your launches! Fantastic. Sending best wishes

Pauline Austen said...

Hi Sue, a very Happy Birthday blog to you. It's been an amazing 10 years and I'm so glad I found you. It's great to see how your styles have changed over time which has definitely influenced my card making. THANK YOU so very much. I still have printed copies of many of your samples, carefully kept in my husband's old shirt boxes. (His shirts are long gone)!!
Love the colours of today's card. In fact with the addition of one of your stick pins and beautiful bows; it would make a lovely birth day card. I do love the little humming bird. Hugs xx Pauline

A beautiful card with which to celebrate your blog birthday. I like the way the centre of the card has been recessed with the hummingbird looking in. Lovely colour.

Ten years really is a great achievement & everyday at that. Thank you so much Sue for all your inspiration & your generosity & hard work. Hope the next ten years are even more inspirational! (Is that possible?)

Hi Sue
Happy 10th anniversary to you and Particraft, I wish I could say I’d been with you from the beginning but it wasn’t until March 2013 when I discovered you and I don’t think I’ve missed a day commenting since. A beautiful card today and as always a great video, thank you for the daily inspiration. Happy birthday to Julia as well

Love and hugs to everyone
