Calendar Girls


Kelly was our host last month for the Calendar Girls.  Her challenge was to make a card with fabric on it for the focal point.  I'll be honest, my life has been unbelievably crazy lately, and I didn't even realize when I put this baby gift together last week, that it worked with Kelly's theme.  I made blankets, burp cloths and bibs for a friend's first baby.  I bought the fabric and the baby toys months (and months ago).  When I got the call last week from her mom that the baby was here, I was a little bit in panic mode.  Somehow I managed to quickly get everything stitched up and enlisted my 4 year old nephew for some help wrapping it up (he and little brother hang out with me during the week while mom and dad are at work).  In my quick effort to make a homemade tag, and my lack of finding my stash of "critter" paper in a timely fashion, I grabbed a swatch of leftover blanket fabric so it would match my theme and took out my spellbinders dies until I found something that went together.  So Kelly, here is my "fabric" card, better late than never.
