Welcome to a new challenge at Exploring Cricut. Our challenge is called "April Showers Bring May Flowers". You are to create a card, layout, or papercraft using at least one of any kind of flower.

I went with a cart I have not used in forever, Walk in my garden.  I just spend the weekend with a good friend of mine and I wanted to send her a card to say thank you for taking in my crazy brood.    It is a very simple card, but that seems to what I am doing lately.  But I really liked the contrast of the black and white and color.

Carts:  Elegant Edges and Walk in my Garden
Paper:  Recollections

Exploring Cricut - Daily Post

Happy Wednesday.  Hope geveryone is having a good day!  Another Wednesday and another daily post for Exploring Cricut.

Have you ever had a card you were really happy with and you were going to take a picture of it and put it on your blog and you go to look up the picture and realize you forgot to take the picture?  UGH!  One of my peeps always says to make two of a card you make so you have a spare, so I just made the card again.  ;)
The original card was for my daughter's student teacher who's was leaving her classroom, so this card will just go in my stash for that special someone.  ;) 

Cart:  CAC2
Paper:  SU and stash
Sentiment:  My Pink Stamper
Face Stamp:  Peachy Keen

Exploring Cricut Challenge - It's a Spring Thing

Welcome to our new challenge here at Exploring Cricut. This challenge is called "It's a Spring Thing".  You are to create a card, layout, or papercraft that must include at least  1 button, 2 Cricut cuts, and 3 colors of pattern paper or cardstock.

I wanted to go with a  cute little bird since all the birds are finally starting to come back.  Soon our flowers will be here too, but for now she can use a little paper one.  I even put her on a little action wobble!  She just made me happy and I plan on sending this to my mom for all she has done for me lately!

Exploring Cricut - Daily Post

Happy Wednesday!

Finally, I have been trying all morning to get my post up and Blogger has been giving me a hard time. 

Today's card is a shaped card from Happily Ever After.  One of those carts I said I am never using again after trying to put together one of the princesses!  ;)  But my daughter had a birthday party to go to.  Her favorite princess is Cinderella.  I made her a banner, which I will post tomorrow.  So figured I would make her a glass slipper card to go along with her banner.  I know it is a pretty simple card, but there is lots of stickles around the outside and the 5 year old who got this just loved it.  It was nice to use a cart that I thought I was NEVER going to use again.  LOL! 

Paper:  Recollections and Coredinations
Nice and simple!  ;)
