I can't wait for tomorrow when we can start placing orders from the new 2017-2018 Stampin' Up! Catalog.  Of course I have a list a mile long, as I'm sure you do also.  Half of the fun is looking at all the new samples (which I have spent hours doing and will be doing over and over again).  Today I will show you a sample of the new Daisy Delight Stamp Set.  You can purchase the stamp set and the matching punch in a bundle (I love bundles to save money).  You will love this bundle also, as it is "user-friendly" and cute, cute!!  Also, I have a sample of the High Tide Stamp Set, carried over from the Occasions Mini Catalog.  I jumped for joy when I found out it was being carried over -- perfect set for male cards -- if you don't have it already, you absolutely need to get this set.  And finally, I wanted to show you some page layouts from an album I am doing for my great-nephew's first year.  Most of the product I use for my albums is discontinued, but hopefully you can use the layout and substitute with product you have on hand.

I hope all you mothers out there are having a beautiful day.  I actually am celebrating my second Mother's Day.  My children honored me yesterday with an awesome cookout and way too much food and today I'm celebrating again by going to church and coming home to do NOTHING ("nadda") the rest of the day except play in my craft room!!  My daughters decided we would celebrate the day before so we could just be lazy and do nothing on the actual day and not be cooking in the kitchen.  Personally, I would rather eat what we prepare than what the men might decide to fix.  The men in our family are not noted for their cooking, outside of grilling meat; and I for one don't want to clean up my kitchen after my husband has cooked in it (that's a long story we won't get into today).  So we were all happy campers knowing we did it "our" way -- LOL!!  Today I have a Mother's Day card I made using the Rose Wonder Stamp Set and the Rose Garden Thinlets Dies.  I also wanted to show you some samples of how you can recycle your Paper Pumpkin shipping boxes.  I used discontinued Designer Series Paper that I accessorized with the new Daisy Delight Stamp Set and Gold Faceted Gems, both of which will be in the new Stampin' Up 2017-18 Catalog (you are going to love all of the products in this product suite).

Inside of the card with a typed message that is special to me.

I love the new Daisy Punch!!

Until next time,
