Sweet Dreams Baby Card

Hi bloggers!  A truly clean and simple baby card for you today.  This is a really good one though, if you need a quick new arrival card.

 The finished dimensions are 6 3/4" x  8 1/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Lovely card Sue, gorgeous, any new Mum would love this.
I hope everyone is safe from Ophelias wrath. It must be terrible in Ireland as on the north east of England the wind has howled all night, quite scary. Keep safe and wel, everyone.
Elaine hope you got sorted with your hearing aids and glasses. Hiw did Andrew get on, 3 appointments us a lot in one day, he would be tired after that.
Carmen, welcome back, you have been missed. When you get round to it would love to hear about the vacation.
Saba, your family are coming to see you not look for dust. How can you be a nomad and keep a tidy house I ask. Enjoy their visit.
Donita, you do make me smile, I lose things all of the time. I now own the Spellbinders big blue diamond magnet and put my dies on there whilst I'm working with them then put them away when I finish, it's handy for picking up dies from the carpet too.
My manager wasn't happy being back at work yesterday but with the other managers admiring her tan she didn't have time to bother us. Small mercies, lol.
Ann hope the Gemini lived up to your expectations. And that you had a great day.
Sending hugs to all, especially poorly and missing friends and all who are caught up in Hurticane Ophelias. If you are driving please take care.

Oh Sue, what a way to start the day all fluffy, squishy, and broody lol, good job I checked auto correct as broody wasn't the word that originally came up !! Anyway, this is such a gorgeous sample such a beautiful way to celebrate a new life (everything crossed for our Tina E and Claire) so much so I'm ordering this set straight after the video as you've made me want them even more and hopefully get them in time to make a few cards ready for market, I cannot resist any more lol.
Sending warm fluffy love and hugs your way lol and hope you enjoy your day xxx

nattyboots said...

Awww what a cute card , love the little lambs ,will watch the video later Sue thank you . xx

Well i have just not been able to sleep again { 5 nights in a row } so up with the larks
I got my glasses sorted and my hearing aids , they are so dinky and neat but they do make my ears itch inside ,{ don't know if this is normal or what } but i was glad to take them out last night.

Andrew has to miss another treatment this week , it is very worrying as it is funded ,i don't know much about the rules except if he misses so many he will be taken off it and next week is his deadline , the skin specialist has not come across Andrews rash before , he has given him some cream and an appointment for next week when he will have the results from the swabs taken , and if their is no signs of improvement then he will do a biopsy .Thanking you all for your good wishes .
Hope all our friends in Ireland and Scotland are safe , looking at the news Ophelia is on a mission so take care and stay safe everyone .

Pam at least you had a stress free day , hope today will be the same for you. I will echo you again today as you always cover everything so well.
Big hugs to all who need one

June Smith said...

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, such a pretty card today and one that can be treasured for always. I love all the stitching round the outsides of the shapes.

Pam I reiterate all you have said, have you got a date yet for the op?

I had a wonderful luxury afternoon tea yesterday with the 3 ladies who were all in the same ward ass me and all having our knees replaced, it was great meeting up with them again and comparing updates of how we are getting on, basically we are more or less all at the same stage which is reassuring. Dobbies Garden Centres do a wonderful tea, with the clotted cream, jam and scones, and wonderful cream cakes, yes I must put my hand up and confess I did have 2 cakes and oh they were yummy, so got to cut down now for the next few days to make up for it. ha ha.

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

Donita Naylor said...

Dear Sue and All Her Little Lambs,

So sweet! So very cuddly! Just darling!
Thanks for the tip on inking through the die. And which color to use. I was wondering on the monkeys, so maybe it's the same.
And I like the new music on your video.
Nice to see you back, Carmen. I'm another one who's hoping to hear about your trip.
Very clever, Pam, using the magnet that way. I'll be going fishing with a magnet in my craft room trash bag before it goes out. Wish I had a bigger magnet. Also wishing for comfort for you and Andrew as you wait.

Izzy said...

Hi Sue,

Such a sweet card and it's never too early to subliminally implant the sheep counting idea into a child's mind to get them to sleep through the night...lol...especially when the sheep are as cute as these!


Ann said...

Good Morning Sue Awwwwww this is so cute. This is the ideal card for mums to be.... New arrivals..... or just ordinary baby birthday cards. I often get asked to make first birthday and new arrivals so these dies will be ideal for me.
Pam glad to hear things were ok at work yesterday and fingers crossed your manager will stay in holiday mode for another few days at least lol.
I would like to thank everyone for their lovely greetings and wishes I received yesterday for my birthday. I haven't been commenting as long as some of you lovely ladies, so it was nice to feel like I was one of this huge and wonderful family. I am in love with my Gemini. I cut my first few dies with it after my dance class yesterday. I know I will love it.... I didn't get around to embossing yet but that will be another thing to look forward to. Big Thankyou and hugs to my wonderful husband.
Kind regards Ann Toppcards Leeds

Lovely card.

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, this gorgeous card is so sweet and the background clouds are most effective. I love all of your little animals, they seem to have their own personalities - or am I just being fanciful :-) I have this set on my *very* long list as they are waiting to come and join my stuffed animals.

We had very high winds, a strange yellow sky and some rain yesterday, Norah's hills kept disappearing under huge clouds but today although still very windy there is a glimmer of sunshine. Pat L thinking of you in Ireland and everyone on the West coast and hoping that it is not too bad where you are.

Hello Sue,
What a truly adorable card. It's so sweet, almost makes me broody - I said ALMOST ha ha. (Now that would be a miracle!)
Pam, long may your manager be kept busy and off your back.
Elaine, I do hope Andrew is well enough for the treatment next week and that the doctor finds out exactly the cause of the rash.
Pat L, glad Ophelia didn't wreak havoc on you.
Barbara Mac, Jenna is a real trouper. I know your heart is full.
Ann, glad you had a good birthday.
June, I think Diane meant touch, not youth, when she said it was lovely you'd all stayed in youth ha ha. Your afternoon tea sounds good. Mmm I like afternoon tea ha ha.
Donita, there is a special crafting black hole where things disappear for some time, then appear again, right there in front of you!!

Hi Sue,

What a lovely card for a baby! So simple, clean and cute. Great video as always.

Pam – Glad you had a free stress day. Hopefully tomorrow will be a quiet one as well.
Elaine – Sorry to read about your and Andrew`s problems. Sending a big hug for you.
Laine & PP – I noticed your absence. Hope you ladies are Ok.
Saba, Pam, Donita – Thank you for the warm welcome. It good to be back.

Our vacation was great. We arrived and had a glass of bubbly and a cold towel for our comfort and the restaurant was still open special for late guests like us. We had very nice weather, just a little bit rain one morning while we were having our breakfast and one afternoon. The resort is huge with nice garden, big swimming pool, Jacuzzi and the good food at the beach and pool restaurants gave us the chance to spend all day on the beach not to have to go for lunch to the buffet. We had the basic country-chic junior suite located perfectly half way between the lobby and the pool/beach. It was large, clean, with a large balcony. The view of the hills was a nice touch.
Everyone happy and friendly. Lots of English people spent their time around the pool while Germans preferred the beach. The best night entertainment was the dance competition, six pairs (each pair had one professional dancer and one tourist) put an amazing show. The popularity prize was won by a Canadian girl who was absolutely hilarious. Everyone had a great time watching this girl dancing. Jury’s prize went to a British girl who definitely can dance.
Very relaxing overall, if you let yourself ignore that the mini fridge wasn’t restocked everyday, or the bank teller kept a small tip for himself when you exchange money (he didn’t wait for you to give him a tip), or the cigars prices were different during a day (in the morning a price, in the evening a little bit higher, if you were lucky to find the store open), or the internet wasn’t working all day or the mosquito and flies sand. On our last day we had to visit the doctor “office”. My hubby had lots of big, red and swollen bites on his legs from the flies’ sand probably. The nurse was very nice and helpful while the doctor was keep checking my hubby’s flip-flops and at the end he asked for them. He is a proud owner of some Canadian flip-flops :) now. Yes, my hubby left doctor’s office bare feet but glad that he made this guy happy and we had room for an extra rum bottle:) Some people described the resort as a retirement one, because it was very quiet early in the morning and over night, but for us it was what we were looking for a peaceful and resting vacation.

Hugs to all,
Still a newbie to Craft / not longer the newest, or the only Canadian Wilsonette ,Carmen

A lovely card Sue. I love those lambs and with my nickname I really think I should get them. Thank you for this lovely card. Sorry to be so late commentating but have had a very busy day and not been home long. Went to watch my granddaughter ice skating in a competition tonight. Her first one since she started lessons in March. They announced the winners in reverse order but I didn't realise that so thought she had come third. Thought that was good. But no she came first and got a Gold medal. One very proud nannie here. Must get some sleep as another very busy day tomorrow. Glad your manager was busy yesterday Pam and echoing all your comments.

Good morning Sue and all Wilsonettes.
A spectacular card and great video. I am expecting a new Great-Granddaughter in December so may have to buy these dies. I promised myself I wouldn't buy any more until I move to my new abode in a couple of weeks time. Wouldn't it be awful to make out the order and not know the address to use!
Greetings to all.
