best wishes

I'm trying to get some more cards done again.  I seem to have had too long a break!
This Sue Wilson design is my version using all her products.  The new Gemini dies are so beautiful and very clever.
I have seen retailers doing pre-sales of Sue's newest launch of dies and they look incredible!!  Some new styles too which are original and inventive!!  The funniest thing is I was crafting a few days ago and making a typical 'Sue-style' sentiment banner with the forked tail and I thought to myself "wouldn't it be useful to have a die to cut these out" .... and lo and behold Sue has one in her new collection!!  AAWESOME!! Of course I have pre-ordered that one and a few more!!

thinking of you

Well this is my first post for some time!!
My new Grand Calibur was delivered today after some weeks of delay, so I got right to it!!
I couldn't wait to get started on Sue's latest designs!!  Her new die collection is quite stunning.
This is my version of an outstanding design by Sue Wilson.

The new machine!!!
[on first use I am already sure it feels stronger]

special day

Sue Wilson had recently released some more exquisite dies to her range.
In her original design she describes this card as being front opening with a band around it.
I have made my own version with the entire design on the front using divided die cuts and base card.
The sentiment is on a strip across the front, slightly bowed so its not flat.
I added embossed detail using spellbinders grand squares, and some extra layering.
