Crisscrossed Card

Hi bloggers!  One of my favourite things to do is to crisscross dies to see what sort of interesting looks you can achieve.  The Jocelyn die works perfectly for this too I think!

Yes, I will admit that today is my birthday and the number 62 is now officially glued to my forehead! LOL  Kidding aside, I love life more and more the older I get and the fact that I have a great bunch of crafter friends on my blog has a lot to do with that!  Thank you so much for always being here for me and stopping by the blog, it means the world to me!

The finished dimensions are 7" x  9" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Helloo Birthday girl. It's all about YOU today Sue, the sample is absolutely beautiful and I will watch your tutorial later. It's lovely to read how happy you are and how you love life, now you know exactly how you and your blog makes me/us feel. I don't work and all that fills some of my day when I can is craft and it's down to you, I 'love' my craft friends more than life and I'm so frightened of getting older, yes petrified so reading your comment is how I need to think as I wave goodbye to my 50's in December rather than fear my future maybe I should look forward.
Andy and I wish you a day as beautiful as you and Particraft. And a day of being spoilt is only what you deserve. Love ya xxx

Pauline Austen said...

Happy Birthday Sue. Glad you're enjoying life, well, the alternative just isn't an option. Age is, after all, just a number and you can always reverse those, so today you think of yourself as being 26. (But stop doing it though, when you reach 67).
I hope you have a lovely day. But, unlike the rest of us on our birthdays, you won't be hoping for a set of the latest Sue Wilson dies.lol
Gorgeous card, by the way. Hugs xx Pauline

Tressa said...

Lovely card... will catch up on the video later after Bridge.

Birthday greetings. 62 eh! You’ve a while to catch up with me. Have a lovely day although I suspect it won’t be that restful as you are an inveterate crafter and I am sure, as hard as you try to resist, the craft tools will beckon!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY have a wonderful day, you so deserve it. Fab video as always, love the idea of gluing the 2 dies together then placing them on top of each other. Gorgeous colour card. Hugs SNOOPY DOG 2. xxx

Wishing you the most beautiful birthday day. Thank you for giving so much inspiration to others. Age is but a number; I'm sure you don't feel 62! WakeyL

Rose in Chester said...

Hi Sue,
Have a fabulous birthday, full of the things you like to do, but leave crafting for the day. Just get yourself spoilt.
62 - your still a spring chicken, I can give you 10 years. Wouldn't like to be a teenager or in my twenties again, too much hassle.
So, now to the card which is brilliant, And I have the dies, so no excuse not to adapt it (I might go red, white and black)............

Hi Sue, Happy, Happy Birthday and 'All the Best' to you. Hope you have a great day. I love today's card, the soft salmon is a great addition to the range and Jocelyn makes a lovely centrepiece. Thanks for the tip when criss-crossing multiples, it certainly makes it look easier.

Hi Sue, another gorgeous card! Happy Birthday, lovely lady - it was watching you demonstrate the Grand Calibur on Create and Craft that got me into die cutting; that was about 11 years ago, and now I have literally thousands of dies, and most of yours! Thank you for all the inspiration and the joy of crafting Sue Wilson style. Love, Judy M

Pretty card, Sue.
Just dropped in to say a very Happy Birthday and hi !! to everyone.
Still not crafting - but went to Haverfordwest last week and reminisced at the SET shop about your visit and meeting Heather and many others - still fondly remembered.
All best wishes.

Happy Birthday my dear. I too am 62 and highly recommend it. One is old enough to justify an afternoon nap, yet young enough to do all the things you still want to do.
Have a lovely day and a brilliant year to come.

Wheely Bad said...

Dear Sue

Wishing you the very happiest of birthdays, surrounded by those you love. Hope someone has sorted a delicious cake or your favourite treat of choice. Loved the last die release- and recently added a couple to my die collection 😁 sending love hugs and many happy returns from me and BillyDog.

Sending crafty best wishes to all those names I recognise. I'm ok, lots of the usual with hospitals etc "Spoons" in short supply & used mostly on staying healthy & not over working Mister. Plus making sure BillyDog has all he needs- he's 10 next month!

I'll try not to leave it 5 months next time, crafty hugs, T x

Happy Birthday! Wherever you are and whatever you are doing, I hope you have a great day.

Love Helen xxx

Rather late in the day but Happy Birthday Sue! Hope you’re having a lovely day. Age is just a number - the important thing is that you live your life to the full and don’t put off something you would like to do; get it organised now! We don’t know what’s around the corner and we owe it to ourselves to enjoy life.
Gorgeous card again today.
