For You...

Good day to all my bloggie friends!
I wanted to say "Thank You" to all who hopped with us this weekend.
I truly appreciate all of the bloggie love that were left on my Cupcake project.
Also, for my new followers, welcome my friend!
I believe by now I am also a follower of yours too.
 For today, I have a quick post..sorry :)
I was asked to make 3 Mother's Day cards with the color purple.
The color "purple" is a lovely color. It is not a color that I usually use but I will now.
For my cards, I used the Make It Now Lace Floral card with the Cricut Explore.
I added a Recollections embellishment on the center of each flower and I stamped 
the "For You" sentiment by Teeny Tag Greetings on the bottom of my card.
The flower is just Gorgeous!


I had a little issue with my white cardstock....
not too happy with my


Cricut Explore
Make It Now:Lace Floral Card
Recollections Pattern Paper, Cardstock & Gems
Tombow Multi Mono Liquid Glue

Entering my card to the following challenges:

  8. Superb and delightful creation. LOVE the colours you used and if my cuts turn out a bit funny like your white flower I just go around the petals/edges with a little bit of say purple ink and distress it a little, amazing what you can hide...have a great weekend..xx
