Happy Mother's Day!

I am hoping all the mothers and grandmothers are having a wonderful day today!  I know I will be....I love being called "Mom" and "Omie"....and yes, my little 20 month old grandson is starting to say "Omie"!
I made a couple of these cards with my E2. I'll give one to my daughter...this is her second Mother's Day...and shortly she will become mommy to a little girl, too!

This standard A2 sized card was made with the Cricut Essentials of those preloaded into the Expression2.  (Really loving the's pretty user friendly but I know there are a few more things I need to learn to do!) Cricut Essentials is a great cartridge....not a full fledged cartridge...only one feature key but there are some really cute and useable images on it.  I cut the flowers out at about 2.5 inches...and the leaves were cut at about 1.5 inches.   I used some little white flower brads I had for the centers.   I like my things to look dimensional so I curled the petals on the flowers a bit. The paper is from Paper Trey Ink and the Happy Mother's Day sentiment is from Unity Stamps.  I think it is such a happy bouquet of flowers! 

Happy Mother's Day!
