Baby Sweater

Happy Friday!
I hope your week has gone well! And I hope you had a wonderful Memorial Day holiday. Hubby barbecued 3 days straight! Doesn't get much better than that! Good thing he got all that setting food on fire out of his system because now apparently Texas has decided to share some of those thunderstorms with us. And hubs is in Florida and having a hard time getting home due to delays because of the thunderstorms. Looks like another Lean Cuisine for me. Sigh...

Since it always seems like wedding & baby shower season this time of year, I made a baby card. I remember seeing one a long while back w/ a tiny little knitted sweater & I've been wanting to make one for quite awhile. So that's I what set out to do! Now I DID NOT knit this little Barbie sized sweater on those toothpicks. I knit it on regular needles...just way smaller than the yarn called for. I think it recommended sz 8 and I used about a 3. So that was fun enough! When I got to the top, I just slipped it onto the toothpicks. I added a dot embossed white background and part of the Diapers Rattles & Blankets Greeting on a die cut panel & added some yellow stars w/ bows (the rest of the greeting is on the inside).  On the larger white background, I stamped the Stars Background w/ the yellow ink then added my baby sweater. 

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
