New Die Cut Flowers

I accidentally ordered more die cuts for the Big Shot. I said I was going to wait until the new catalog but Lorri Heiling made me this super cute card and I wouldn't be a real friend if I didn't show my appreciation by copying her!
This is the first of several Mother's Day cards I'm working on.

Cardstock: Baja Breeze, Riding Hood Red, Whisper White, Old Olive, Sweet Slumber Specialty DSP
Stamp Sets: All Holiday
Accessories: Big Shot, Daisies #2 die-cut, Top Note die-cut, Fresh Favorites II buttons, Linen Thread, Stampin' Sponges and a little So Saffron ink
My Baby Benjamin is 13!!
Although he smiled for the picture, he was less than happy about the sign in the yard. At least we finally had a sunny day!!

Tickets to see the Jonas Brothers (why oh why did I do that to myself?)
He hauled in about $200 in cash by the time the day was over!
Years ago the boys started this silly thing of putting the bows in the hair of the brother who wasn't celebrating the birthday. This year it was particularly funny with Nicholas in his nose cast...he kind of looks like the scarecrow in the Wizard of OZ !

My Australian Demonstrator friend Debbie Pammet mad this adorable Tote-ally Awesome Tote. I love the colors and the stamp set she used!!!
ETA: She used Stampin' Up!'s A Kind Word Stamp Set

I love those little kitties!

Great job Debbie! You can see her blog here.
