Baby Shower Gift & Mojo Monday

Yesterday I went to a baby shower.  There hasn't been a baby shower in the family for some time.  It's always fun to see the adorable little outfits that they didn't even have for kids under 2 back when mine were born.   Remember the baby swings that weren't battery operated and you had to wind them up?  My daughter would be peacefully asleep, the swing would stop, she'd start to fuss, I'd rewind the swing, which made an absolutely awful noise, her eyes would pop open, her arms would go straight out in the air, startled nearly to death, and then she'd peacefully go back to sleep (most times). There were no wind up swings at yesterday's shower, but at least 1 of every other conceivable baby item on the market.  And Mom-to-be will never have to buy another baby gift bag for the rest of her life!

Here's what I made for the little one, a girl, expected in early December.

I made 2 hats, one newborn size, and one a bit bigger and a very soft baby blanket to match.  (Well, actually, I made a blanket and 2 hats to match because I had extra yarn.)



Now, let's move on to this week's card for the
 Mojo Monday Sketch Contest # 418.
 
 I used a CTMH stamp on the card and cut the 3 snowflakes using the new CTMH Artistry Cricut Cartridge.

Additional challenges I am entering include: 
Fashionable Stamping Challenge #103 - Words as the focal point
Pile It On Challenge #89 - Recipe 1,2,3 (1 sentiment, 2 bows, 3 snowflakes) 
Crafting Musketeers Challenge #30 - Christmas with a Ribbon
Aud Sentiments Challenge #141 - Christmas + a sentiment

  1. Awesome card!! I have that Frosted stamp set, too. It's one of my favorites! I used the "holly jolly" sentiment from that set for some of the holidays cards I've made for this year.
