Because I Care

Hi Everyone!
So for today's Spotlight Wednesday at A Day For Daisies I am spotlighting two of Tammy's gorgeous Mother images. The first is a stamp called "Two Girls with Mom".
I went pretty clean and simple with it. Just thought it mirrored the serenity pictured here.

Image: ADFD
Colors: Prismas and lyras
Paper: Kraft colored cardstock (Kraft Outlet) and MME Stella &Rose Gertie papers
Twine: Sew Sweet

And the second project I used Tammy's image "Little One" for a gift tag to go on a present for a pregnant friend of mine.

Are you curious to know what was in the present?
I'm no genius at wrapping presents

My daughter and I took turns crocheting rows on this granny square afghan, so its a gift from both of us to their new baby boy.
(I kinda cheated with the color scheme. I looked through their gift registry ...)

So I hope Ive inspired you with a little something today!
Happy Crafting!

Beautiful card and tagas always from you Dorcas...but the crochet blanket has stole the show for me! I am in ht emiddle of a lemon blanket for my Niece's baby due in May, I did the same stitches as you, but i am making loads of 5x5 squares and joining them together, I have really enjoyed making them (it's years since I made a blanket,) but it's coming along a treat. Take care and keep up the lovely work. Debbiexx
