A baby cardi with matching card

Hello dears, how are you today?

I would like to show you a little hand knitted vest i have made for an acquaintance. I am pretty sure she will be more than surprised when she is reads my name on the envelope lol.. she is expecting her first baby and i think it is such an amazing experience (if you are not constantly sick) i wanted to make her a little card and of course since i love to knit - i wanted to make a little baby sweater. They are made so quick, the one you see i was able to whip out in just 2 evenings. I even have some yarn left and if i find time i might make a matching hat. The size you see is size 3-6 months, with some room to grow into. I remember getting way too many gifts in size newborn and the babies grows so fast - i wanted her to be able to put the little one in this handmade gift a little longer than just a few weeks. Hopefully she likes it. Fingers crossed.

Oh yes, there is also a card i made to go with the sweater ... the colors of the sweater dictated the colors - i found them in the fall line (Walking in the Forrest) of Maja Design Design papers but i think it does no show too much. You can find all Maja Design papers over at Timbroscrapmania.

I also would like to submit this card to Timbroscrapmanias challenge "Baby's coming".

Pregnant Tilda, flower corner stamp, font stamp - once upon a time
Die: Go Create, Lovely Fence (Magnolia)
