All The Best

Hi crafters!  I started by covering a piece of acetate with a sticky adhesive sheet.  I used Iced Flake which is the large particles that look a bit like crystalline on the sticky adhesive.  It looks like it has that cracked glass effect in real life.  Next I cut the Tina die repeatedly across a piece of Sky Blue card.  I glued it on top of the Iced Flake background on to the acetate side.  Next I cut the Tina die four more times out of Cobalt card.  I used the long thin fall away pieces from it and paper pieced them back into the background.  Next I cut the Anna die using white as the top, Cobalt blue as the middle layer and added a Sky Blue backing to it.  I cut the centre die using a white on top and bottom and a sky blue middle section and added it to the Anna die.  I seated the Anna die in a diamond orientation in the centre of the background.  I used the All The Best sentiment and cut it out of Cobalt Blue and added it to a white shadow then glued it into the centre of the die.  The card was completed with white, Cobalt Blue and Sky Blue mats and layer.  The finished dimensions are 7 1/2" x  8" in size.

I approached this question from the point of view of things that would be totally impossible if it weren't for the help of a genie!  I didn't have to do much pondering for my first wish at all, I would like to be able to sing, really belt out a song with a voice like Barbra Streisand or someone like that! I would love to be able to walk out on a stage and sing in front of an audience.  I have never really had stage fright or anything like that, the only thing that stops me is the voice part, sadly(kind of a major thing I know! LOL)    Secondly, I would like to be able to eat anything at all and not gain a pound! In fact, sugar would be a health food in my wish! (In my dreams, I know LOL! )    The third wish would be to wake up every morning and not have to "get ready", the hair and make up fairies would arrive before I wake and do their jobs, my make up and hair would already be done miraculously! You know, like they are on tv! You never see any bedhead,  I always get a kick out that. (Again, in my dreams!LOL)  We can dream though, can't we!   All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue love your wishes lol that tv thing always makes me smile, can you imagine going to bed with a full face on? Oh the mess on the pillow cases, foundation stains,eye shadow, and 1 fake lash acting like a dead caterpillar and another stuck to your cheek lol. It's always something I pick up and make a comment on lol I don't wear make up and my hair is short so I'm sorted lol. It's so interesting going back to read blog buddies answers to your questions.
Your background sounds really different I must have another look on Andy's tablet later. It's a really pretty combination of colour and design, Anna looks absolutely beautiful standing proud for all to see.
I hope your day is a lovely day whatever your plans xxx

Hi Sue, this card is really striking, the background is the perfect base for the intricacy of the dies. Have a good day everyone. Bx said...

Morning Sue.
Another beautiful card, thank you.
Sue I see two of your wishes are the same as mine, wouldn't it be wonderful to sing,
I sing all the time while I am crafting, it stops me putting my hand in the sweety packet lol.
Take care and have fun Kitty.

Scottydog said...

A lovely card in my favourite colours, would be good for a man’s card, especially if done in brown & orange. Thank you Sue.

Love your wishes, I would also love to be able to sing. I know someone who can sing beautifully, play the organ/piano really well, exhibits & sells her paintings & is a terrific cook. Think she got my share of the talents as well as her own! Lol!

Pat L said...

Hi Sue
Beautiful card today and I have asked for the Anna Die for my birthday in a few weeks time. Your wishes brought a smile this morning, I know I could do with a hair and makeup fairy too!!

Love and hugs to everyone

Lisbeth said...

Hi Sue. What a really pretty card today. I particularly love the effect that can be created using the Anna die.
Love your wishes, how many of us watch those programmes on TV and wish that we could either sing or dance quite naturally without any coaching or practice and for most of us it is sadly only a dream.


Fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, my first thought on seeing this card was 'oh! how pretty' but the close-ups show that it is actually beautiful. Love the colours and the sparkle.

Love your wish list especially the sugar health food, I could do with some of that :-)


Deb E Isle of Wight said...

Again, beautiful post.

Love your wish list and being able to eat anything would be heaven !!!

ursula said...

I absolutely adore this card, so striking in the blue and white, apt for so many occasions....thank you Sue...I just love your wish list Sue, we all need some of these fairies to do things, like clean my my ironing and the washing up....luv Ursula x

Tressa said...

This is a lovely card. I do like this colour combination, Very striking.

As one who has never worn make up in her life, I find the last one of your wishes amusing. It puts me in mind of my Italian friend's mother in Florence who wouldn’t even leave her bedroom in the morning until she had full warpaint on.... and believe me, it was warpaint! It must have taken her an hour to put it on.


Eunice Astle said...

A very interesting card Sue, the textures and colors are amazing! Love your wish list.

Beverly Fuchs said...

Hello Sue,

A stunning card today. So fresh and bright. The colors are beautiful together and the design is so universal. I love it.

Have a fabulous day.


June Ballenger said...

Stunning card Sue the blue is wonderful. I love your wishes.
Like you I would like to be able to eat anything and that chocolate was a health food (in my dreams)
I would love to be able to walk without a walking stick ( In all of my dreams I walk unaided) boy do I wake up disappointed lol
Lastly I have always wanted to be able to drive but I have never been able to due to a medical condition.

Liz said...

Fabulous card, great dies and I love the colours. xx

sued99 said...

A very pretty card. I do agree about being able,to eat anything and not put weight on. Wouldn’t it be great. X
