Baby Shower!

Tonight I am hosting a baby shower for a friend. I made up a few goodies to party with. Here are the party favors that will be filled with chocolate covered rice crispy treats. OH! I can't wait to eat them!

Using 8x11 CS, I cut long ways to get three strips at about 2.75 inches. I then scored at 1 3/4", 5" and then scored 3/4 inches from the 5"score mark. (I will pull together a tut soon so you can see what I'm talking about) I then cut up some burlap to use as background (it matches the next project I did) and added some fun hearts with the Earth Love paper from Cosmo Cricket.  I hope to get these babies all wrapped up in the next few hours. 

Next I made a banner for some decoration. Please ignore the horrible photo. My good camera is out again today with DH at the theater. I did the best I could!!
Here is the full banner. It says BABY and is strung up on grosgrain ribbon. Here they are close up:
I used the stamps from Bitty Baby Blessings. Hand drew the 'B' and backstitched it with bakery twine by Martha Stewart. I also strung on some silver beads. 

Next up... 'A' I used my Marvy Small Heart Punch. Added some buttons and a little tag that matches the one for the party favors
Second 'B'. This one is a little bear. I think I will add another strip of paper at the bottom to round this one out. What do you think?? I love the rustic buttons!!
Last 'Y'  This photo has serious issued. I have some stars, some beads (from the 70's!) and more bakery twine.

Ok. that is it for today and probably tomorrow. I have a birthday bbq to go to, and hope to get a pic of at least the card, but you know tomorrow is so packed with things to do I don't know if I will actually get that done!!  But be sure to come back at least on Sunday for 365 Cards Sketchy Sunday!! 
And until then, I hope you have a smashing weekend!!

**will fill out deets later. gotta run!!!
