Is it OK if she sleeps with a blankie on her face?

It is generally not safe for a baby to sleep with a blanket on his face since he could easily smother and would not be able to remove the blanket when he needs more air. If you are going to use a blanket, use the “feet to foot” strategy. Place your baby’s feet at the foot of the crib and tuck the blanket in around the mattress at the foot of the crib so that it only goes up to the baby’s chest. Instead of a blanket, consider using things like footed pajamas or a sleep sack.
