Mother's Day Cards

I know these are a little late for posting, but that's okay. Here are a few Mother's Day cards I created with the help of my new Cricut Expression II-which I LOVE by the way!!! 2 of the cards were made with the Florals Embellished Cricut Cartridge and the Super Mom one was made with the Cricut Decals Cartridge that came pre loaded on the new Expression. The new Expression II came with 4 pre-loaded cartridges that are super sassy and super duper cute! This new machine is fabulous and very easy to use. I love seeing the images on the mat before I cut them- really helps with paper placement. The touch screen is very user friendly. Do yourself a favor and check the new Cricut Expression II out and if you can treat yourself- do it!!!

Super Mom Card for my Daughter, Jen

This card is a standard A2 Card, cut at 5 1/2" x 4 1/4"
The blue layer is cut at 5 1/4" x 4"
The scalloped circle is a Sizzix die- must be about 4 1/2" since is goes over the card base a little

Finished it off with some doodling with my white gel pen and white bow with Papertrey ink ribbon

Me and my Mom on our "special" day out
I forgot to get a picture of my mom's card, but here is a picture of us at a Scrapfest the day before Mother's Day at our local Scrapbooking store, Scrapbooks, etc... I treated her to a lunch and a scrapbooking project class before the Scrapfest (12 hours of scrapping). We had a great time together!!
