Bear and Baby Card

Hi bloggers!  Here's a video showing how to assemble the pram from the Baby's First Pram die set.  
It is adorable for any new baby card that you may need to make!

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

Lovely card Sue. Sweet, pretty and adorable.
Elaine, I'm hoping that Andrews medical team can get together and sort this out. Sending you all love and hugs.
Theresa echo away I don't mind
Krafty Runner your dad sounds amazing, my dad used to grow all if our veg to when we were kids.
Myra, IT is beyond me but I don't think cake is the answer lol.
Hooe Maureen us feeling better.
The office temperature on our floor yesterday was 12 degrees near the window and 14 in the centre, it was 13 degrees outside. It took until 9.30 to get up to legal temperature 16.5 but still really cold all day. I had on 3 layers, a body warmer and a pashmina, my manager sat in her coat all day. Carmen I work for the Government ......
I hope everyone is keeping warm and well, stay home and have a crafting day if you can.
Hot hot hugs basket is open, help yourselves, some for missing and poorly friends too.

Morning Sue. This is such an adorably cute sweet sample. What parent wouldn't love to have this on show at their happiest time of life. It's another collection on my need list, but I'm having trouble chosing which I buy first ! will watch the video when my poorly keeper is out on the early morning crawl with 4paws.
Sending friendly hugs and love to you this Tuesday hope your day is a good day xx

Good Morning Sue. A beautiful card for a truly miraculous event. A new baby how lovely. I wish my two boys were still children I so enjoyed bringing them up. They have families of their own now.
It was back to at normal at line dance yesterday after the Christmas break. I don't know where they all came from..... I think there must be an exercise regime going on after the holidays....there were 40 people turned up. We had some old faces and new ones Ohhhh and we even had 2 men come to join us.... well the more the merrier I say... and we are such a lovely group. Best Wishes to all. Kind regards Ann Toppcards Leeds

Hi Sue
A lovely adorable card ,loving the borders and the Teddy.

Thank you all for the hugs and good wishes , A lovely lady saw Andrew yesterday and explained about the Chemo ,she said "If you were my patient i would ask you to consider ,,,,,, this Form of Chemo it is just as good as the other one you were on also this one will work for all your problems and save you having 3 or four cocktails for each individual area that needs treatment" .
She also explained that over the passed 3-4 months Andrew has missed a 6 Chemo as he was not well enough and that is because his body had got used to the cocktails . Is he being fobbed off ? i dont know . but Andrew says you have got to put your trust in the doctors/ Consultants .
He found out yesterday that his lady Consultant is back off holiday so he wont have anything more to do with the Gent who was seeing him this last 3 months ........
Andrew is having the Tummy drained this Morning , { should have been yesterday but they ran out of time }

Pam you and all should not sit working in the cold it will make you all ill , they really need to get there act together and get it up and working .
I will echo you again today ,thanks for keeping me up to date. xxxxx

Have a lovely day everyone .
Big huggles to all .

CHERYL Brown said...

Morning Sue,

What a delightful card for any new parents or grandparents to receive. And the cute itty bitty teddy bear is the icing on the cake. I love the border technique, I'll have to see if any of my older dies would give a similar effect.

Pam, I bet the House of Commons and the Westminster Offices have their heating turned up, It wouldn't do for the precious MP's to be cold would it?

I feel for the supermarket till operators who work near the doors, the cold draughts they sit in is not so nice as well.

Love 7 hugs

Such a sweet card. Teddy is so cute. X

Morning Sue, love this card, so cute, thank you for sharing.
Pam why don’t you take a small fan heater into your office and keep it under your desk, I’m sure the heating would get sorted quicker if everyone did that.
Take care everyone, Jess xx

Crewe Trish said...

Hello Sue
This is gorgeous I have just watched the video and I loved how you used the border die.
Pam I hope the heating is fixed soon I don't suppose you can take in your own heaters because they have to be pap tested first.
Elaine hopefully now his own consultant is coming back from holidays things will move quickly(3 months seems to long time) and at least they are talking about chemo which will give him a fighting chance.Huggles to all who need them.

Jackie Trinder said...

Hi Sue this is a stunning baby card I love it. Those dies are amazing. Have a great day today. Take care. Hugs Jackie

Helen Bell said...

Hi Sue and everyone

Another cutie card, and a very pretty one too.

Will watch the video later as I’m on my way to physio soon.

Pam, you think they would provide their own electric heaters for you all, which they have PAT tested themselves. It’s really not fair to expect you to work in those conditions.

Elaine, it’s a difficult situation. I suppose you do have to have faith in the doctors. Sometimes different drugs can be overlooked but are really effective. Perhaps you could arrange to speak with the doctor and ask her to explain more so you feel reassured this is the best action. Is there a Patient advice and Liaison Service at your hospital. They are there to help relatives too and could arrange an appointment with the doctor for you. If there is no PALS service then you could ask the Ward Sister to arrange this for you instead. I’m sorry if I’ve overstepped the mark, or if you already knew about this, but often people don’t. Please don’t be offended, I am just trying to help. I hope Andrew feels a bit better after having the fluid drained. Thinking of you and sending hugs.x

Love Helen xxx

A very cute card this AM. The pram and Teddy are precious.
Pam, try to stay warm. We are supposed to be up in the 60's on Friday after freezing for 2 weeks....crazy winter. I do not like the cold.
Elaine, hope Andrew is feeling better.
Hugs to everybody,

Lynne L said...

Hi Sue Oh wow what a sweet cute card it's so adorable!
Elaine I hope Andrew will feel more comfortable after today's procedure Hopefully he can have a good chat with his consultant on her return & go ahead with the most suitable treatment Sending you all big hugs
Rosemarkie how exciting to meet Geovani hope you have a wonderful time
Pam still no heating at work that's dreadful at least they could have provided you with temporary fan heaters or something
Sending good wishes to all

Fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, this card is absolutely adorable. Your attention to even the smallest detail is amazing and I think it would look equally good in other pastel shades. I love the way you have used the Gemini die to create the borders.

Elaine - I hope Andrew's procedure today was not too painful and he is now feeling more comfortable. We have to trust the doctors to do their best for us. Helen is right about PALS and sometimes it helps to talk to knowledgeable people that are not directly connected with the patient.

alimecca said...

Hi Sue,
Such an adorable card for us today. That teddy bear is such a sweetie.
Pam, it's not right that you're having to work in such poor conditions. One year in my first teaching job, we were having similar problems, and in the end the council had to bring in calor gas heaters. Maybe your bosses could arrange for something similar xx
Elaine, hope Andrew is feeling more comfortable today. I think you do have to trust the doctors and that they know what is best. Xx
Hope everyone is ok, love and hugs Alison xxx

CCM said...

Hi Sue,

Really cute card that can be changed to pink and send it to a baby girl. Adorable. Love it.

Pam - As Jess W. suggested , you should have a small fan heater into your office and keep it under your desk or you are not allowed? I have a heat cushion for chair that I use it almost every day in the morning.
Elaine - To trust or not to trust the doctors? Not always, I will say. If you are in doubt you should always ask for a second opinion. I just spoke with one coworker who's daughter, 21 years old, lost a university year and was in pain for months because the first doctor put a wrong diagnosis. After months of medication and no improvement they went for a second opinion and finally the girl received the right treatment. She is a in a better shape now, physically and mentally. I really hope whatever Andrew's doctors will decide to be the right decision and help him. You all are in prayers.

Warm hugs from cold Toronto to you all,
Still a newbie to Craft / not longer the newest, or the only across the pond Wilsonette

Nanny Jo said...

Sue, that has to be the cutest baby card I have ever seen! Fabulous!! Jo xx

Donita Naylor said...

Dear Sue and Wilsonettes,

Cunnin', as they used to say in Rhode Island. Maybe you said it in the video, but all you'd have to change is the ribbon color for a girl.
Wow, Kitty, you've attained a greatness few can reach, great-great grandmother. And you look so young in your profile photo. Peaches and cream complexion, or is that chocolate chip cookie dough complexion?
Goodness, Pam, at least they should give you hazard pay, for working in Antarctica.
Admiring Andrew's positive outlook and faith in his physician. Glad she's back.
Warm wishes to all.

Beautiful card Sue and as always your video is superb.
I could have done with those dies last week when my 5th, Great Grandchild entered the world. ( Not all to the same parents)
Congratulations Kitty on becoming a Great Great Grandma As my eldest Great Grandchild is 21 already I guess there may be a chance for me.
My beautiful new craftroom is already beginning to look like a bomb-site so I have promised myself to do some sorting today,
Healing thoughts for Andrew and all others that need them,
