Baby Card

I'm finally getting around to posting a project again!  It's been a busy week with wonderful weather so I haven't been at my craft table much.  Not to mention the fact that my craft space has been moved again because we started working the the basement family room!  My things are all scattered in an unfinished bedroom that only has one light and none of the outlets are live yet, so I can't even plug in a lamp.  I just keep reminding myself that it will be short term and the next time I move it, it will be put in its permanent place! 

Tomorrow, I am going to a baby shower for one of my good friends, she is due in about a month!  I can't wait to meet her little boy.  I decided to make him this little flannel blanket.  It's so soft!
And here is the coordinating card.  I got my copy of Go-To Sketches in the mail this week and this is one of my favorite sketches from the magazine...although I have tabbed about 3/4 of them!
Sorry for the bad lighting, but it's too windy to take pictures outside today!
And here is the basement!  The first coat of tape is on the drywall so it should be ready for paint by the end of next week - I just have to pick a color!  Then we will lay some tile by the walk out, trim and have the carpet installed.  Can't wait!

Thanks for stopping by!

How cute is that Blanket .......and how much do you love the sketch book ....... good color combos. I am only going to say Benjamin Moore paint ...... they have the best paint in the whole world and since our walls are plaster and 100 years old I have first hand experience. I did all my colors for this house on their website ..... they have some really great shades!!! What color are you thinking ??

I'll look into that Sue Ann - thanks for the tip. I'm not totally sure on what color yet, I know that I when I see it, I will know. That's how I picked all the other colors for our house 2 years ago and I still love them. The only thing I do know is that is has to coordinate with the dark brown of the "bricks" you can see in the picture. It's actually poured concrete that was sandblasted and stained.

Aww, I love the blanket you made Anika. It's adorable, and looks so soft. The LO of your card is fun! And I like that it is so colorful and not "blue" for a boy. Really happy card.
Good luck choosing colors for the walls in the basement. I'll bet you can't wait to have a permanent space for your crafting supplies again.

The blanket is adorable. My son has a "Mr. Mischief" shirt and it totally fits his personality. Don't you just love that Papercrafts mag? So many great ideas!!

That blanket is just adorable, and I love how the card matches. Have fun choosing paint colors...I think that's the most agonizing decision...so many beautiful colors, but only one can be 'the one.'

Oh your friend will just love that blanket! I wouldn't be surprised if it ends up as "blanky". to be carried around for years to come!
