It's hard to believe I've had to pass up time with this batch of delightful toys.
I plan to get to this in the next couple of days as I have many ideas for cards using several of these new stamp sets (you can't see it but the balloon stamps and matching punch are hiding near the bottom of the box as well as several more stamp set).
Although I haven't been able to make any cards, I've still been crafty.
My cousin had twin baby girls last month, and I had the brilliant last minute idea to crochet baby blankets for the wonderful new arrivals.
They turned out quite lovely and I'm very happy I managed to finish them within two weeks. You may not believe it but as I haven't crochet in many years I actually developed blisters on my right hand after a few nights. But I persisted and completed them rather quickly.
Now these sweet twins have an older, 2 year old brother. I didn't want the little tyke to feel overlooked so of course I had to make something for him as well. My daughter recently bought a book with baby and toddler hat patterns. So after looking through it I decided on this cute raccoon hat.
After I finished the hat I had quite a bit of yarn left over and proceeded to make a matching scarf.
This past weekend I quickly stamped a few "handmade" tags, packed everything up in a box, threw in a couple of greeting cards and now have finally got my gifts ready to mail.
If all goes well, I shall have plenty of opportunity to play with my new stamps and share some card creations very soon.
Thanks for stopping by! Hope to see you again soon.
