Ok, remember my cute elephant card? Jenn (yes, another Jenn, I'm not talking about myself. lol) had posted the cute elephant toy that her hubby had cut out for her (thanks Jenn's hubby!). Well today I went and purchased the goodies to go with the card.
First up, the softest flannel at Joann's. Elephants on one side and a coordinating stripe for the back. And I brought it home and made a cute little baby blanket with green stitching. I love it!
Then, because I'm hardly a seamstress. (I only do straight stitches and they're rarely as straight as I want them) I hit my favorite little boutique.. Target (pronounced "tar jhay" with a french accent hehehe!) They had the cutest monkey themed clothes but I had already chosen elephant for the theme so I went with the Gerber wild animals which featured an elephant and happened to be in the perfect green color to match the blankie.

The blanket stitched together super fast then I put the whole thing, card included into a nice little Priority Box and USPS will be by to pick it up for me tomorrow. Have you tried the USPS pay-for-postage-online-and-have-the-post-guy (or -girl) come-pick-it-up-from-you thing yet? I highly recommend it!
I love it when I'm able to do a coordinated package like this.
