Bundle of Joy in a Blanket

Today I'd like to share with you a baby card and a blanket that I made.

For the card, I dug through my stash looking for just the right papers, and these two patterned ones seemed to be just perfect. Then I added a little watch of feather paper and some lace ribbon.  
I looked through my stamps, and this one I thought was perfect for the card.
Then it was still missing something and I found this cute little dress in my chipboard collection.

I wanted to make a baby blanket as well for my friend, and wanted also to try a new pattern. 
I found this pattern called the Six Day Kid Blanket online HERE.
At the back of the pattern pdf, there is a chart to modify the size, and so I made mine smaller. Very simple and fun to work with. 
I love to look at yarn in the store, and it's even more fun when it means I can buy some to bring home to work with. :)  
I chose some yarn from the Bernat Softee baby collection.  Pink, Antique White, and Flannel.
Then it needed a brighter colour so I added into the mix the Happy (pink) from Red Heart Baby Hugs collection. 
It took me a bit but I got it finished, and I put an edging of a couple rows of single crochet around the outside to finish it off.  You can see it in the bottom of the picture. 

Well, now it's all tucked away for when I see my friend. 

I love doing these little simple things for others... just so they know that I care.

Love and Prayers,
