wishing you joy

this design by Sue Wilson could be used for any occasion but the sentiment I used is a justrite Christmas stamp
The charity shop I donate to told me today that I have raised well over £1000 [plus gift aid] for my donated cards, so far.
A great deal of that is due to Sue Wilson's beautiful designs! 
Thanks Sue!!!

angel and gilding flakes

a Sue Wilson design using her Christmas dies and embossing folder with a simple background of gilding flakes.
No sentiment needed.

pure Sue Wilson here!!
This die is so Christmassy!! 
A touch of sparkle and holly really add to the design.
And those pva glue dots!!  The OCD in me forced me to again measure with my piercing ruler!!  There is no way I could space them evenly without a bit more practice!

christmas wishes

Sue Wilson angel die with one of her background dies behind it
I really like this design of hers - it may not be 'traditional' but it is quite striking!

joy and gladness

A lovely glittery design by Sue Wilson.
a mix of spellbinders, justrite stamp and dies, and Sue's line of dies on this card, of which I made 2 with differing sentiments

poinsettia frame

This is one of my very favourite Sue Wilson designs.
I might use this design for my own Christmas cards - if I find the time to make them!
Bold and dramatic.
The sentiment is a justrite set that I had difficulty finding and eventually got it on ebay from USA!!

best wishes

This is one of Sue Wilson's delightful 'high-low' techniques
using gilding flakes and black iced snow glitter for a dramatic effect
I am not afraid of black!!
