Mojo116- Welcome, Baby

Good evening from snowy Iowa! We are just coming out of one heck of a blizzard. We were pretty much snowed in for two days, so I have gotten ALOT done! I finished an order of 15 cards (started on Monday) because we couldn't go anywhere! This is one of the last ones, and it also follows the sketch for this week's Mojo Monday (#116).

There is absolutely no stamping on this card, it's all paper from the same stack. It's called Nana's Nursery Baby Boy Matstack. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it. It's glittery, it can be boy or girl, it's darling!
I drew some faux stitching around each of the circles for interest, and then cut the giraffe out by hand and popped him up on dimensionals. The "welcome, baby" is my own handwriting. Thanks for stopping! We actually get to leave the house tomorrow, so things will start picking up again!

Paper: Nana's Nursery Baby Boy matstack (from Hobby Lobby), unknown dark blue
Other: ribbon, blue pen, dimensionals

My first crocheted blanket!

Hey, everyone! Just popping in quick this morning to show you the blanket that I finally got done! My friend Becky asked me to crochet around some fabric for her daughter's (1) "comforter" for her crib bed. I chose to use some dark brown thread. I kind of made up the pattern because I didn't know what I was doing, and close up, it looks a lot more like scallops than in this picture, but you get the idea!
Rnd 1: Foundation stitch
Rnd 2: Dc in every sc
Rnd 3 (scallop): (3 dc, ch 3, 3 dc) in first sp, sk 4 dc, * (3 dc, ch 3, 3 dc) in next sp, sk 4 dc*, repeat from * around.
**in corners: ch 1, 4-5 dc, ch 3, 4-5 dc, sk 4 dc, resume Rnd 3

Happy Friday!
