This is the coolest plant I have ever seen

This is by far the coolest plant I have ever seen!
It can be planted outside, preferably in a pot so you can bring it indoors during the cold weather.  It is from the same family as "Chick's and Hens's" which are another favorite of mine.  I bought it at Home Depot for $9.95 which I didn't think was to bad for such a large, unusual plant.  I can not take it outside yet, because today it snowed!! Yup May 8th and it snowed!!

Thank You For all my Birthday Wishes!

Mother's Day Card 1 of 3

Well when I got home from work today and my family got home from our friends cottage, I was getting ready to study after dinner, which it my normal routine lately, and the kids and I got talking about the week ahead.  Its my birthday this week, my in-law's anniversary next week, and then it hit me "Mothers Day", it always sneaks up on me, even though it shouldn't it is the same week as my birthday every year, sometimes the same day.  Needless to say, studying went to the way side tonight and I was in my craftroom, for the first time in a couple of weeks, this is the first of three Mothers Day Cards.

The paper is by Creative Memoreis, you can't see it in the picture but the flower pattern is completely glitter!
The stamp is by Stampin' Up!
The pink card stock and Hollyhock ink are Close to My Heart!
