new baby blessings

Our friends Josh and Amy just had a baby boy on Sunday. I was going to wait to post these until we got to see him (along with a picture of him), but I just can't wait any longer! We'll see them tomorrow and will hopefully have a picture then.

In the meantime, here is the card I made them...

Supplies: Heavenly Blue CS, Twilight Textured CS, Goldrush ink, brad (CTMH); Always stamps, felt flower (SU); Happy Birdie stamp (Stampinbellas); 3d foam tape (Scotch); 2" circle punch (marvy), Swiss Dots Folder (cuttlebug).

And this is the teddy bear I knit them! Isn't he just the CUTEST thing ever? I was very pleased with how he turned out. Not bad for a first try!

Love the bear! THat is so darn cute!! You are my knitting hero :)

I started another scarf--since I only know the knit stitch so far and scarves don't involve any measuring--LOL!

I'm waiting on a couple of books from the library. One is the baby book you recommended and the other is all on "itty bitty hats" sounded intriging for all those babies being born lately.
