A winner, a holiday weekend and a baby shower

So I am pretty excited that I have more followers now.  You all help to keep me accountable to people other than myself.  Now for the winner of the i ♥ cards birthday cards: Clay!  I'll get in touch with you to get these cards to you as soon as possible.
My March craft goals are finished and I have one gift left to deliver and one gift left to mail.  Once these have made it to the their recipients I will reveal them on the blog.
The holiday weekend got the best of me and I managed to miss two blog posts (what happened here?  Honestly I am not sure).  I promise to not let this happen again.  But I did do some crafty things over the long holiday weekend.
I went to one of my favorite stores, Impress (http://www.impressrubberstamps.com) in University Village this weekend and purchased stuff for my sister in law's baby shower.  I adore this store I am super excited to make the invitations and decorations.  In addition to the invitations, I plan on making a banner and perhaps a diaper cake.  Here is a diaper cake I helped make a few years ago:

I am probably going to make something similar to this for her shower, but add accents in mint green as well.  I love how the butterflies seem to be flying every which way on the "cake".  I think the hardest part about this cake was rolling the diapers (and someone else did that) so I will be searching the internet for how to fold diapers soon. All this "cake" required was a Martha Stewart butterfly punch, some patterns paper, ribbon and floral wire.  I'll be sure to post pictures of the invitations and decorations I make for this upcoming shower as well.   Thanks for reading :)
