Mixed Up/Throwback Saturday


Good Saturday Morning Ladies,

I really enjoyed looking back at some of our older cards last week, so I thought that this week I should show some of your old 'Sue Wilson' cards. I still love them as much today as I did back then, you could tell that it was a 'Card Maker' designing dies for Card Makers if you know what I mean. 











How amazing are all of these cards featuring Sue Wilson dies/Embossing folders etc??  They have not dated at all. The cards look as fresh and crisp as they did back then.  It's odd that now I don't really use SW dies at all, apart from the odd sentiment, having seen these cards though I am definitely tempted to get them out and start playing again, I have been so inspired by some of your cards ladies.

I hope that you all have an enjoyable weekend,

Love and hugs to all of you,



  1. Morning Ladies

    What an amazing selection of SW cards on display today, so many lovely cards. Great reminder especially the “Izzy” bag made by Sue.

    We have sunshine again today-no rain fur a few weeks now. My plans are to pop into the village for food shopping then take quite a few bags to the charity shops. After than I need to go into my craft room.


  2. OMG The cards are amazing and like you SANDRA I don’t seem to use Sue W dies in their entirety these days Embarrassingly I went through the list saying to myself “Oh yeah I forgot I’ve got that set”
    We had our hair cut yesterday OH looks so different with short hair! Me? I had coloured with lots of highlights All he could say was “it doesn’t look any different colour wise I could have saved a fortune” But the grey is gone and it’s colour instead!
    Interestingly what do you think of Sue W’s latest collection? I love the butterfly one she showed yesterday
    OH’s first day back at work So I intend to craft!
    Take care all x

    1. Hi Karen, I like her new collection and especially the butterflies and roses. Love to see your new hair cut, send a PM 😊 mine is now long down my shoulders 🙈 xx

  3. Morning everyone
    Like Karen I'm saying OMG, just look at all the cards made with Sue's dies,EF and stamps. I do use them from time to time but will try for next weeks cc to only use them. Great Challenge.
    Blue sky and sunshine, I really hope it is the same were you live. Just got back from a walk, tracker saying 3.37 so that's enough for today. I must finish the cc for this week, running so late again,sorry but after it will be a book and a chair sitting in the garden and dreaming that the garden was already dugged over and pretty flowers everywhere, well I said I was dreaming 😃
    Have a wonderful day everyone and big hugs for you all xxx

  4. Hi everyone
    Stunning cards on display today, love seeing the older cards and yesterday’s too. A great challenge for next week, so I’m hoping my mojo will be back for me to take part.
    Apologies, as I haven’t made a card for this weeks, but I look forward to seeing your creations tomorrow.
    Hope you’re all having a good day and enjoying the lovely weather. Sending hugs to you all xxx

  5. Hello All, it’s been lovely and sunny, but oh so cold. Put my fleece on to go out.
    Planted dahlia seeds and cosmos , both some of my favourites, so much cheaper than buying plants.

    The cards you show today are all real wow cards, don’t remember mine at all. Will have to get out all my dies and see what I can find.

    Well I going to get dinner, nice and easy, cod fillets (line caught) and chips and peas. Jelly and tinned fruit salad for desert.

    Enjoy your evening, Lilian.

  6. Hi Sandra & ladies
    My word what a blast from th PST Sandra. Even if I had the dies now I don’t think I’d remember how I made the butterfly card for you. I remember making the handbags that’s Sues card as well.
    Not a bad day here today. I managed to empty my pots and washed them out ready for some new compost. I though I’d have a go at the patio while I was at it. Thought I might get rid of a lot of it before I think about using the patio. I had to untangle the hose. The nozzle wasn’t shutting off properly. So needing to shut it off at the tap I got throughly soaked when I put it down on the floor. And it turned itself right around so I took the full force of the jet. I had to have a complete change into dry clothes.

  7. Hello Sandra and ladies,

    Sorry I’m so late, some of you have possibly gone to bed by now, we have had a busy day today and I am just about catching up with my day.

    Great treat looking back on our past (I didn’t say old because I think they have all stood the test of time) SW cards what a treat. Looking forward to seeing everyone’s new designs next weekend.

    Sleep well everyone, enjoy the rest of your weekend.
    Love Brenda xxx
