The card I made for the Baby Shower

Hello Everyone
Thank you for your comments about the Baby Shower - mum-to-be is still hanging on. She's probably got a couple of weeks left actually.  Just to straighten things a little, I didn't make the cakes, i just wanted to show the beautiful cupcake I was given, it was very tasty! And my daughter is not due until the beginning of April. The card today, is the one I gave to the mother to be. 
All of my family and friends know I make and give baby garments. As this mum-to-be doesn't know what she's having I made her this card. I knitted the little jumper" and placed the knitting onto cocktails sticks. I used a Hama bead as the ends of the "knitting needles". I was really pleased that it worked and will do it again either as an I.O.U. card or a New Birth card. I've got Craft Club tonight, nothing much planned for the week end. What about you?

  2. Hi Karen I make cards with little bits of knitting like this and they have proved very popular. Congratulations on your name being picked by Christine this week. Busy weekend as I start the new year at craft club on Monday but it's all about relaxation so will be doing a zentangle workshop and have put colouring books in their workshop bags. It is basically ready and I've done March so now need to start on April. Sunday I'm going to Yours Sincerely at Thetford which is always an enjoyable trip. Enjoy your weekend best wishes Jackie x
