The Best Gift I Ever Received – You

Well before Matthew was born, a friend of mine had given Taten, Alex and Madison each a fleece blanket. Once Matthew got too big for his baby blanket, he really wanted a blanket like theirs. Alex (a real softy for Matthew) immediately gave him his blanket. When another friend of mine heard about this, she sent him a homemade, handtied fleece blanket for Christmas. It’s backed in red, which is Alex’s favorite color, and has a space theme…one of Alex’s many obsessions. 😀

Materials: Bazzill cardstock background (it was supposed to be black, but I accidentally started adhering the cutout pieces to the wrong paper, so I just went with it. :-P), Webster’s Pages Waiting for Santa Papers, tinsel trim, holiday trim, and diecut stickers, stickles, American Crafts plastic snowflake.

Created using this week’s sketch on the Sketchy Thursdays site. If you’d like to view the sketch or participate in one of their challenges, CLICK HERE.
