Never too early!

I was roaming around on Daring Cardmaker 
Kathy Black's blog - Kathy's Waffle.
She uses a lot of gorgeous handmade flowers on her cards.
Check out the fantastic origami flower she made here.  I'm going to try that fold for sure!   And that's what inspired me to add a dahlia fold flower to this card 
which also features a digi from Spyder's Corner
where Wednesday is a free digi day.

I'll be entering this card in the following challenges:

Yesterday Baby Benjamin (accompanied by his parents, of course) came to meet us.  What a precious little boy, exhibiting excellent behavior too!  My great-granddaughter, Laila, was very fascinated by her new cousin.

If you only knew how long it took to get this picture!


Now would you like to see the cards we made at Joyce's CTMH Card Workshop this afternoon?  We got to use some of the new products.


The chipmunk is sitting on his tree stump, chipping for his dinner.  Time to take him a handful of sunflower seeds and then make something for my DH as well.
