Bugaboo Baby Gift

I wanted to share a project that I've been working on for several months after finding out that my husband's cousin was expecting her third baby.  This is my 'sports therapy' hobby.  We watch lots of sports during the winter (not much else to do in cold, snowy Michigan in the winter).  This is the second blanket I made this winter - the first was for my new niece, and of course, I FORGOT to take a photo.  The pattern in this blanket is called a "Basket Weave" and I love how it turned out.
And then there's the new baby card!  I didn't have any baby worthy images, but lucky Jodie at Bugaboo Stamps has eyes in my studio and created this adorable baby image!
Paper - Dots:  Doodlebug; Cardstock - Coredinations and miscellaneous cardstock from my stash
Technique - Magic Colored Pencil Technique & Embossing using Cuttlebug
Flowers - Primas
Punch - Fiskars Threading Water Punch
Miscellaneous - Velvet ribbon (Michaels), Brads, miscellaneous from stash, Googley eyes (of course) and Stickles (you can't really see them, but they're on the moon and the cloud.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you're having a great weekend.  We've got a few items on our To Do list this weekend (including enjoying some sunshine and nice weather on the deck.
Happy Craftin'!

  6. I was hoping to see a view of the blanket with someone holding up the finished product!! My daughter knits and crochets, and I'm just fascinated with how amazing it is! What talent you have! My MIL also crochets, and she's made us all afghans! Such an amazing gift! This is beautiful! I love the colors and the stitch you chose!! WOW!! Beautiful card too!
