Baby shower favor and a little crocheting

Hi Everyone, 
I'm here. Sorry I wen't MIA for a little, I hope to be back tomorrow with a video. I started working on my nieces baby shower favors and wanted to share a few pictures of them. 
I'm using the Curvy Keepsakes Die from Stampin' Up! with Damask pattern paper by the Paper Studio that I picked up at Hobby Lobby along with some sheer ribbon. 
[Supplies are listed below at the end of this blog post]

I purchase some little white tags and pink rocking horses to tie on to the handles and stamped out Thank You with an old Paper Trey Ink stamp set.

I've also been working on my very first crochet afghan. I'm just a beginner at crocheting but I am loving it a lot. I'm using a super heavy blanket yarn in a Pale Grey but it looks more tan to me. I'm keeping an eye out for sales on this yarn as I might be making this for Christmas Presents this year.
