Sweet New Baby

Hi, there!
TGIF!  Seems like ages that I've been here posting a card.  I've had the flu off and on all week...grrr!  But, anyways I managed to make a baby card for a baby shower in a couple weeks.  My nephew's wife will be having a baby girl, Taylor, next exciting!  I crocheted an afghan, bought a couple outfits, and cross stitched Taylor's name onto this darling little monkey...

I didn't have a pattern to copy from, so I had to wing it.  Her name isn't exactly spaced correctly, but I still think it's adorable!  The guys are invited to the shower, fun!  They are to bring diapers and wipes.  And, they'll be off in another room having their own party!
I posted the afghan back in January and I'm now using it as a gift.  I like to have a couple made up beforehand.  I have a blue one done.  And, I'm finishing up another white one. 
Well, that's all for now!  I hope you have an awesome weekend!  Thanks for dropping by!  Take care!
