For Shaylin

I took some time to make a card for my sister today. (seeing I didn't have energy to clean anything) I found this cool tutorial on making a medallion and thought I would try it. It was actually quite easy. Of course because it's for a girl, I had to add some bling!! I used the Bella Rose pp, such beautiful colors.
I used the stamp from So Many Sayings but cut around the main image instead of punching with the scallop punch. Then put it on dimensionals.
I mounted the medallion I punched out onto a slightly larger circle and also put it on dimensionals. Looks so neat! Lastly I added the Chocolate satin ribbon for a little something. Hope she likes it.
I also spent some time today sewing these flannel blankets for the new arrival. Isn't that first one super girly cute??
Well that's what I thought, then I started sewing it and noticed this....

Ooops!
Crazy they'd put that on such a girly material!
I love your card and I'm sure your sister will, too. I tried to catch your instructions but you lost me. Could be that I should go to bed, though...
Take care!

Love the card! You just can't help yourself, girl! You are drawn to boys stuff, it's so bad you are doing it subconsiously now! tee hee. They look great anyway and will wipe up baby puke just fine, I'm sure. Eva will love them.
