I have been rockin' out the cards lately on my Cricut machine! I've made 2 graduation cards, which are completely different from eachother. The first one was made with Everyday Paperdolls (super cute cartridge) and then the second one was made with Wild Cards (tons of different cards w/ matching envelopes).
Then we have birthday cards!
I made the cupcake card for a co-worker who LOVES chocolate. So, I made her cupcake have chocolate frosting! The Happy Bird-day card and Turtle card were made for a couple of girls in the neighborhood.
The bird card was super easy and almost too plain for me. I should have added a little something else to it, but it will suffice! My favorite has to be the turtle card. She is so cute!!!! and it was fitting since I am just a month late getting her card and gift to her! The inside of it says I missed your birthday. Sorry!
Summer has officially started for me so I see more crafting in my future! My goal is to spend at least one day a week upstairs working on scrapbook layouts and cards. Also, I am planning a scrapbooking trip at my lake house in June & July. Fun, fun!!!

I made this card for a special person at work that had to cover my class for me while I finished getting a pedicure. (It took longer than expected!) She loves cats and so I am sure she will enjoy getting this card. Inside is a little mouse that was just too cute not to add!

I made this card on Saturday, the actual day of National Scrapbook Day in all of 10 minutes!! I was headed to Easton's 3 year old birthday party and forgot that I didn't have a card for him. It's made from one of my favorite cartridges, Create-A-Critter!!
So here is my 2nd project for National Scrapbook Day: My Pink Stamper Challenge #4, "I Like You the Least". I made 2 Mother's Day cards with my least favorite cartridge, Ashlyn's Alphabet. This is only the 2nd time using this cartridge and I tweaked the project that was shown in the booklet.Turned out very beautiful, I must say!!

I have finally made it up to my upstairs scrapbook room to start working on a few layouts in celebration of National Scrapbook Day. My new friend, My Pink Stamper, has 12 challenges for us today. The first one is titled, "Mother Dear, I Love You So". I immediately thought of our Mother's Day Tea Party in 2008. So here it is:
