What a beautiful day outside! I am so tickled to finally see some sunshine. I really thought I would go crazy if it didn't come out soon. So, what more than a little vitamin D to inspire my creativity!
First up is a baby blanket that I sewed for my friend that is expecting a girl. This is the first thing that I have ever sewn in my life. With a mini-lesson from my mom-in-law, and a great deal at Jo-Ann's on fabric, I present to you my finished product.
I realize the picture is dark (darn you iphone 3Gs....) but on one side it is abc fabric in bright colors and the back is a beautiful turquoise. I also added a cute elephant on the back since she loves them!
Next is a birthday card I made for my brother-in-law. I used my newest embossing folder and the inlaid embossing technique found here. I think this is so cool and adds a unique element to an otherwise simple card.
