Just Christmas Cards

Hello crafters!  On the run up to Christmas every year, I post all the Christmas cards that didn't quite get their day on the blog.  Here is the first day's worth for your perusal.  I would love to know if you have a favourite among them!  All for now, Sue x

Morning Sue.
I enjoy this time on our blog, it kind of shares our various craft likes and not so likes, most times we all as a friendly group family loved your daily inspiration, some posts give us thought of not so sure, this time of year we share our own favourite loves of technique, backgrounds, layout, CAS or big and bold and it's interesting because over the years I've gone from big and blousey to smaller, clean, sometimes just an expression within frames and I love to see how your inspiration can change from one day to another.
I think I'm looking towards your little village at my favourite in this group Sue, it has more peace and serenity to it, it's none stop for most of us this month and the next few days are mad with last bits to get, appointments due to this lump that won't behave, so to see a relaxed and relaxing card gives me peace during all the running about we have still to do.
Looking forward to the rest too, inspiration on Particraft and coming together gives me some hope for a lovely year on here next year.
Love to all, stay warm, be happy xx

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, I agree with Steph, as I also like this time on our blog, all the wonderful cards that didn't get shown during the launch etc. Absolutely beautiful everyone of them and oh my goodness what a quandary you have given for us, I think my favourite is the Winter greeting as it is using my favourite colours, closely followed by all the rest in no particular order. Thank you so much for sharing, love all of them.

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

Morning Sue.
Thank you they are all so beautiful.
Take care and have fun Kitty.

Hello Sue, I too like this time on the blog when you share with us all the Christmas cards that didn’t make it on the blog. They are all so beautiful and difficult to choose a favourite but I do particularly like the slimline Joyful and also the Winter Greetings

Hi Sue,

You always give us a beautiful array of cards at this time of the year and it is always so difficult to choose a favourite but Imthink my favourite is the second one.

Morning Sue,
A lovely group of cards and it's difficult to choose a "favourite one" but I do like the Joyful one as I love black and gold together.

Hellma said...

Morning everyone this is a brilliant post to wake up to this morning, I loved looking at the could have been collection, my fave has to be dashing through the snow, followed by rejoice, thanks to the well wisher for yesterday the op was a success they say, it doesn’t feel like that to me so my Christmas busyness has stopped and my wee elfs will have to take over, good wishes to everyone xx

Ann Topp said...

Good Morning Sue. Ohhh Sue. What do you do to us.
I agree with STEPHANIE and JUNE I not only love this part of the blog . I actually look forward to it. Every day this week so far I have thought ... It must be today we get ... as you used to say ... "The Orphans". Well Sue ... I would give any of these a home as they are all beautiful and loved by all your particraft family.
Thankyou Thankyou Thankyou Sue. Please keep your fabulous cards coming. The highlight of my morning every morning ... and can I say the same for many others in our little community.
Sending hugs 🤗 and best wishes to everyone who needs them today.
Kind regards Ann Toppcards in Leeds

Sending you the best of wishes for a speedy recovery Hellma. Take time to sit back and relax, you can be busy next year when you're fit and healthy again xxx

Hi Sue
Happy Thursday everyone x
I always feel thoroughly spoilt when you share your ‘didn’t make it’ cards. An array of treats which always get the thumbs up from me. I love all your cards so picking favourites is always a task for me.
That said, number 4 - Winter Greetings is probably the beauty that I’m drawn to the most. I think it’s the colours - always love any shade of blue and I’m presuming this one is aqua, which is a particular favourite. Number 2 - Joyful, is also really catching my eye, a more traditional Christmas card in terms of colour.
Obviously I would be over the moon to receive any of these cards and even happier if my cards turned out like any of your ‘didn’t make it’ beauties x
Hellma I’m so pleased your op went well and wish you a speedy recovery x
Take care one and all x
Sending you all positive thoughts x
Crafty hugs x

Helen Bell said...

Hi Sue

These are all lovely but my favourites are 2,4,5 and the last one. Very pretty and deserve their day on the blog.

Helma - I hope you feel better very soon. x

Love Helen xxx

Good morning Sue
It’s so hard to choose a favourite because they are all beautiful but if I was really pushed number 2 has the edge for me. Thank you for all the inspiration throughout the year!
Hugs x

BucksGirl said...

Morning Sue and all. Like so many others in this group, I love the “also rans”! I love all of your cards, they are all beautiful, but if forced to choose, I will say 1 and 4! Thank you so much Sue, for all of your designs, daily inspiration and also for the help and advice that you have given me personally - it is all much appreciated. Lastly, hope you feel better soon Helma - get lots of rest. Colleen xx

Scottydog said...

Well I have been waiting & looking forward to this post. Like several others the aqua card with Winter greetings has to take top spot, but there are several others close behind. Thank you Sue.
Get well soon Helma.
I am off to a village in Suffolk for Christmas tomorrow & would like to take this opportunity to wish you Sue & all Wilsonettes a very Happy Christmas. I hope there will be lots of Sue Wilson goodies in our stockings.

Fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, I love these days when you show us multiple cards. I like them all but I have three joint favourites that I cannot split - no.2 Joyful, no.3 Dashing Through The Snow and no.5 Peace on Earth - I love them all equally and now have even more inspiration for next year thank you.


Pat L said...

Hi Sue
I too love seeing your cards that didn’t get their day on the blog. My personal favourite is the fifth one, Rejoice in the season, mostly because of the background die which I used for a lot of my cards. Looking forward to seeing more tomorrow
Hellma glad your op went well, let the elves do all the work while you recuperate xx

Love and hugs to everyone

Deb E Isle of Wight said...

A beautiful selection all worthy of being seen but think the 'joyful' slimline is my favourite...

Judy Hollers said...

The poinsettia card with the Joyful sentiment is my favorite. However, all the cards are great. Hugs.

Rebecca JS (rjsmusic) said...

I really like the Dashing through the snow. All of your cards are lovely! Merry Christmas!

Lisbeth said...

Hi Sue. I always look forward to this time of year when you show all the cards that we haven't seen before. They are all nice but I particularly like the Merriest Christmas and Peace on Earth cards as they both have that special touch of class to me.


Maria said...

Hi Sue
All lovely cards and sure would get a good home with us ladies
Wishing you all a nice Christmas. Many hugs to you all
Maria xx

Eunice Astle said...

All the cards are great Sue, but the two that really stand out to me are the Peace On Earth and Merriest Christmas cards. Thank you for all the amazing ideas you give us through out the year. Please enjoy this holiday season!!

sued99 said...

I love it when you show all the cards at Christmas. I think my favourite today is number 5. X

CCM said...

All the cards are beautiful so picking just one favorite is a difficult task so my favorites are #2 because I love red and white combination any day of the year, then #4, it's so elegant and soft, then #3 - a real winter scene...Thank you, Sue.

Looking forward to tomorrow.

Hugs from Toronto to you all.
Stay safe and healthy.

Carole Eaton said...

AON said...

Hi Sue, what a terrific display of cards, you really work so hard and have a terrific brain for design. I hope you and your family have a great holiday and look forward to another great year. A

Pawprintx4 said...

I look forward to see the "also rans" every year as most of them are worthy of being a single blog entry in my opinion. All gorgeous & all so much better than any of mine. Sue, you are an inspiration every year.
Bless you,
Stephanie K

Good Evening all, wow I've so much again so playing catch up yet again, not only busy with the obvious run up to the big day but I've just been having my craft room re-decorated, it's still not put back together again but my son bless him came and fitted a new carpet for me too and it didn't cost me a penny, having a son in the business certainly helps, so since then it's been buying and building new units, getting new storage, getting shelving and work tops ready for installing in the New Year, again by my son, so hopefully by mid January I'll be back up and running, all ready to start on the next decorating project, my bedroom, no peace for the wicked.

Well I digress, love all these cards but to pick just 1 as a favorite for me it would have to be the Joyful Poinsettia card (2nd one in), I mean it's just not Christmas without a Poinsettia or two is it.

Off to check out the next batch now, see you on the flip side.
