My Crafty Heart DT Card - New Baby...

Hello! Hope you are all having a nice weekend! Thank you for your kind wishes re. my dad... he is doing ok except for a very painful shoulder which we think may have happened when he had the seizure. So sleep has been a bit disturbed. But managed to grab some quality sleep last night and feel a bit better today. So... thought I would post this card that I made for My Crafty Heart....

Here's another of the wonderful Whiff of Joy images available from My Crafty Heart - this image is called Buggy Ride and it's perfect for New Baby Card.. 

STAMP: Whiff of Joy - 'Buggy Ride'
PAPERS: Prima - 'Alla Prima'
DIE: Memory Box - 'Wrought Iron Fence'
FLOWERS: Prima - 'Vinetta Flowers /Fairy Belle' and MCH - Resin 'Ocean Breeze'
CHARM: 'Pram Charms'
PEARLS: MeiFlower 'Stick on Pearls' - 5mm

All the above are available from My Crafty Heart.... :-)

The Sentiment is from Pink Gem Designs and mounted on Nestie...

I've coloured little Henry and his mum with Promarkers Cool Greys and a touch of Blossom on the ears and nose. I'm really not keen on brown mice!! don't ask me why... brown bears are ok but mice... I prefer them to be grey or white!! LOL I know I'm doing a lot of paper-piecing lately but I really love that you can tone it so well using the papers... it really is 'My Crafty Passion' at the moment and so I am entering this into the Sir Stampalot Challenge!!!

This image reminds me of when you are a proud mum taking your new baby to the Park... I think this is a Silver Cross Pram - top notch suspension!!! LOL 

Blogger is being a B****r  again!!! I apologise for the huge gaps... I've tried everything to correct it and I'm not starting again from scratch.... and what is with Blogger when you add a link now... it jumps up to the top of the page every time and you have to scroll down after every link you do... Very annoying!!! Now I'm getting a pink band saying an error occured...I'm not clicking on 'ignore warning'  - I am just completely ignoring it and hey... it takes the hint and goes away!!!! ROFL... I actually looked at Word Press last night... when I get time I might try it out....

Anyway,  hope you like my card...

Wow! it's not raining today!!! my daughter has gone to Tatton Park to see Open Air Shakespeare Play Henry V. They are taking a picnic... so fingers crossed that it stays dry for them... so many events are having to be cancelled due to the rain!

I'm really sorry for my lack of commenting... I'm hoping to catch up with you in next few days all being well. But just doing this post has made me SO tired... I think I need a lie down... LOL

Hi Sue, oh this is so cute, I want to cuddle that little baby mouse! (not that I would want to cuddle many baby mice!) He is so sweet sitting their in his pram and of course, it must be Silver Cross (I had one of those for Robin, but OMG was it heavy and awkward!) Your paper-piecing looks fab and love that fence die, she really looks like she is taking him for a walk in the park...and talking of sunny Parks, I do hope it doesn't rain for Chrissy...I hope you are Ok, Big Hugs, Teresa xxx

Ira Huberts said...

Oh Sue, your sweet mice are super cute! And it's so nice to see a grey mouse for a change, because I keep seeing brown ones popping up everywhere, lol! The wee one looks perfectly happy in its pram, but hey, I would be, too, walking around on your pretty card! Take care, hope you had some sleep? Big hugs, Ira xox

Hi Sue, glad your Dad is feeling better.

This is a super cute card, I love everything about it esp the little charm and the fence is a nice addition. Reminds me of a photo of me as a bub in a Silver Cross pram also!

I've had thoughts about going over to Wordpress too when Mr Blogger is being a bastard but it's never happened yet - all is working ok at the moment...fingers crosse.

Susan Flynn said...

Hi Sue what a cute image! Reminds me of when I took my daughter out in her Silver Cross - what a proud mum (apart from the time when I forgot her and got halfway home when I realised something was missing lol)!! Love the paper piecing and the papers are just gorgeous. Glad your father is doing better and you managed to get some decent sleep! Its raining now in Blackpool but we have had 3 or 4 nice days of sunshine!! Take care Sue hugs Susan xx

KraftyKoolKat said...

Hi Sue this is adorable. I love the colours you have used and those lovely embellies finish it off a treat. Glad your Dad is on the mend and you have managed to catch up on some sleep. Hope the weather kept fine for your daughter. Thank you for joining us at Totally Papercrafts this week and good luck.


cotnob said...

I'm so pleased to hear your Dad is doing OK Sue.
I love your card, and I know just what you mean about brown mice, the only ones I can bring myself to colour brown are House Mouse. I love your pretty flower and your paper piecing is fab.
Blogger is a pain at the moment isn't it - I keep getting that daft message and the big gaps everywhere and as for jumping to the top of the page when you add a link, it's just so annoying.
I hope you have a good week.
