Baby Card & Jacket

I made this card and baby jacket for a neighbour who's just had a baby boy.

For the card I used papers and images from Polkadoodles, the gingham papers are from their Sugar Birdies CD, and the sentiment and baby image from their Sundae of Seasons CD.

Other stuff I used are Woodware feet brads, Cuttlebug Swiss dots folder, duck and teddy buttons and blue gingham ribbon.

I knit the baby jacket with Sirdar Snuggly Crofter Baby Fair Isle effect DK, it's really soft and lovely to knit with.

Delicious Doodles have got a brand new challenge blog and they're having a celebratory blog hop. Their first challenge is Anything Goes and I'd like to enter these into it. There's loads of prizes to be won, to find out more click on the DD name above.
