My Favourite Cards of 2019

Hello bloggers!  Happy New Year 2020!!!   Here are some of my personal favourite cards from 2019.  There is no p[articular order to them, just how I happened to come across them in my files.  There is also no rhymn or reason to the type of card either, some are detailed, some are clean and simple and some others use Cosmic Shimmer products.  They just sang to me in some way once I finished them.  I hope you like them and maybe even have a few on your list of the ones that you liked the best on the blog from the past year too!  Looking forward to reading your comments and hearing what you think!  Let me know if there was a favourite that I missed from this list too!  All
for now. Sue x

Happy New Year to everybody! x
All the cards today are just simply beautiful. My favoutite just has to be the first card as I especially like the pink and white stripey background and the gardening theme.
Of course the craft products used are just a delight to see and there are some very inspirational ideas. x said...

Happy new year to all.
Sue Please do not ask me to choose, I love them all, each one is unique in its own way.
Thank you so much, take care and have fun Kitty.

To all that pop into the lovliest blog a Happy 2020 to you all. Our Australian friends are at the for front of my mind at the moment, I'm really hoping that everything settles soon and life gets easier and less frought for you.

Today's favourites are just gorgeous really pretty, I'm sure the majority would also agree with you.
The past year has bought so much inspiration, many new dies and so many changes. My day starts with your beautiful blog and inspiration, and I really hope that my days continue to start the same way all through this new year. I've found two wonderful genuine friends here so I thank you for that Sue. Whatever your plans for today and for 2020 I hope it's healthy full of fun,laughter and much love from the countries your talents reach. HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE xxx

Hi Sue
Happy New Year to you and yours and to all Wilsonettes x
How on earth do you manage to narrow it down to such a short list? It must be like having to pick a favourite child! I have never met a Sue Wilson card that I didn’t like so to be asked which one I like best is not a fair question. They are all so different and so amazingly gorgeous.
In the 15 cards you have selected there is such an array of technique, colour, your fabulous dies and not to mention the time and love you have invested. They are all so different and I really can’t decide which one would be top of my list.
Well 2020 has arrived and it is a mystery as to what it has in store for us. I hope everyone had a lovely evening and there aren’t too many casualties of excessive celebrating. My hot date with some cheese and biscuits and some Quality Street was highly enjoyable and I did actually manage to stay up til midnight just to raise a glass. A lazy day today with my usual early night and then - get this - I am going to try and get crafty at the weekend - watch this space x
Lots of Happy’s and love to everyone x
Crafty hugs

Hello Sue and a Happy New Year to you and everyone who pops into this inspirational blog.
All the cards are beautiful and I wouldn’t be able to pick a favourite although I am always drawn to stained glass cards
2020 has a nice ring to it and I hope this will be a happy year for all

Ann Topp said...

Ohhhh Sue you do ask us all the can we choose just one when all of them are fabulous cards. If any one stands out its the last one....I think it was shown a few days was this one that has prompted me to buy the flower stamp and matching die....and I am just waiting for it to drop through my letter box.
Thankyou Sue for every single post you have given us as we all look forward to many many more at the start of this new year and decade. Wishing A Happy New Crafting Year to all Wilsonettes. Sending hugs and best wishes to everyone who needs them this morning. Kind Regards Ann Toppcards Leeds

Marie P.from Longridge said...

Good Morning Sue.
Beauty in abundance today 'Everything is beautiful in it's own way'
Not a good start to the year for me as I had a problem with the boiler yesterday and called my Son out. He 'Fixed it' but it's happened again today so I have no hot water and no central heating. Sorry Sue ,I know I shouldn't digress on the blog.
Hope everyone has a HAPPY NEW YEAR.

Happy New Year everyone and hope it’s a safe healthy and happy one
I love all of your cards Sue but I suppose if I had to choose...
... it would have to be any one the stained glass windows ones When they first came out I was enthralled at how different they are and maybe one of my favourite releases

Hi Sue
Happy New Year to you and all the Wilsonettes, may it bring you all good things. A lovely collection of special cards, each beautiful in their on way. As I lean to more simple cards my favourite would be the Noble Happy Birthday, it makes a card all on its own

Love and hugs to everyone

Jackie Durrant said...

Happy new year Sue. It's too difficult to pick a favourite from so many but the gardening one really appeals to me alongside the autumn colours of the leafy frame xx

Happy New Year to you too! Beautiful selection of cards, so hard to pick a favourite as I love them all! Love Jean xxx

Fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, Happy New Year to you and your family and to Wilsonettes everywhere, let's hope it is a brighter one than last year which I know was pretty miserable for lots of people. Today's selection of cards are all gorgeous and as to picking a favourite from the whole year - I think that is next to impossible.
Thank you for another year of beautiful cards, informative videos, tons of inspiration and empty bank accounts lol.

Have a safe, healthy and happy one.

Happy New Year Sue, Here's to another year of great dies, cards and ideas. A

Pawprintx4 said...

There were so many, many beautiful cards this year....every year gets better. I would add a few of the spectacular Christmas cards to the list as they were so beautiful this year (loved the Angel cards and the poinsettia squares for examples). I do love the Cosmos flower card a lot but all of these are winners in their own right so hard to focus on just one as they are varied.
Happy New Year, 2020 to all here.

Suzzette Yandle said...

All card designs on display today are lovely. I scrolled up and down numberous times trying to give you my opion as to my favorite. A difficult decision. There are two on the list that I feel speak to me the most. The teal and white one, "Thinking of You" for the various backgrounds, the various leaves used and how dramic it looks. The second one is the last one in pinks, white and green reading "You're Special to Me". I adore this color combination. Looking forward to seeing another year of your gorgeous designs and videos.

Deb E Isle of Wight said...

Happy New Year to you and all the bloggers...Your pick contains two of my favourites as well....Love the Happy Birthday card in rainbow colours on the white background - simplistic but so effective and the last card of the post is just gorgeous. But have to admit all the cards are lovely in this selection.

Lisbeth said...

A very Happy New Year to you too. Most of my favourite cards have appeared amongst these. Looking through your choices one thing has struck me about the style of them. They do not have the same amount of dimension as previously which is a great help to us as you are showing us how to make wonderful cards without incurring additional postage costs. Also they are all much more simple, not your previous frilly and blousy type. They are, however, all very classy and show off the dies that you have designed very nicely.

Happy New Year Sue. All the cards here are beautiful. Looking forward to what you are bringing us in 2020.

Beverly Fuchs said...

Hello Sue,

Happy New Year to you and all of those in this group. May the New Year be Happy, Healthy, and Joyous filled with many new and exciting adventures.

I like so many others find it difficult to pick a favorite card. They are all unique and marvelous showing your incredible creativity in both the creation of the dies and the designs of your cards. I look forward to what you have in store for us in 2020.

Have a wonderful day.


Tressa said...

Happy New Year to one and all.

Some lovely samples here, but the gilding flake frames caught my eye and I think my version of this might be one of this month's birthday cards.

Hi Sue,
A belated HAPPY NEW YEAR to everyone, and hope 2020 is a healthy new one, with a bit of money to spend on one of our "vices", ie crafting which is a thing that gives on giving - joy to us and to others.

These are stunning cards, I haven't got any favourites - I never have with your cards Sue.
