Joy and Wonder

Boy here we go again super late with posting my card. Where does all my time go, I am retired and should be doing my own thing but everyone need/wants this, that and the other.  I am in the middle of a project which hopefully I can reveal tomorrow as there was a item for it I just could not get right but Christine Emberson ( has come to my rescue and I will finish it tonight, come hell or high water. So be prepared. big build up, I hope I don't fall flat on my face and it does not turn out right.

This card today is a Sue Wilson inspired Christmas one, please note ladies I have attempted the Cosmic Shimmer pearls not too successfully but practise makes perfect, I will make another for my box and do better. This one was just a trial to see how it turned out.

  1. I like it very much, I didn't even get out of the starting blocks today. Did a change of plan and mojo bolted. xx Flora

  2. Good evening Wilma,
    I was up very early and you had not posted when I popped in. We were off out most of the day, so here I am.
    Yep! I can see the Sue Wilson influence here and I just love it.
    Your liquid pearls are absolutely fine.
    Happy Crafting

  3. Hello Wilma, how are you today? Well I see nothing wrong with your shimmer dots, they look lovely as is your card. I love the layout and the design. The ribbon is gorgeous. Uep, thumbs up, kate x

  4. Hi Wilma, so what is wrong with your cosmic pearly dots? Absolutely nothing!!! Lovely Christmas card, and as Patricia says you can see the Sue Wilson influence - I'm sure if youlook back on our work it's there for all of us, certainly in my post tomorrow. Christine x

  5. Hi Wilma - I noticed you had become a follower of my blog so thought I would pop over to see what you were up to - creativity wise lol! I love your Christmas card and those colours are gorgeous. Sue Wilson does a lot of influencing doesn't she! I love most of her cards, some I haven't been too sure about but the white and a little colour (like yours) are definitely up my street! Love your pearl dotty things - there is nothing at all wrong with them.

    Hugs to you Sue Pxxx

  10. This is beautiful Wilma and I think your "pearls" are fine. Love the die you have used on the side and along the bottom.

  11. Hi Wilma,
    Just had a tour of your blog, very impressive, like today's card, I see the 'inspiration' it is lovely, the dots are great, first time I did them, I left my card on the table to dry, went and did something, came back, what a mess, my little 'naughty' Shih Tzu had walked all over it, glue everywhere, she is little but can jump anywhere, literally, hee hee.
    Really liking your creations, keep them coming, wishing you well till next time, thank you for your comment of earlier.
