Mother's Day Cards

I've had a lot fun making these adorable cards! Have you ever had a design idea in your head but no time to sit and make it.  That was me but yesterday I had the chance to sit and get these from my head to my Gypsy and then cut on my Cricut E. 

This first card I made for my mom and mother-in-law.  All the images are cut from the Cricut Straight From the Nest cartridge.  I made the shaped card on my Gypsy.  The printed paper is from DCWV Glitter Stack.  Love this stack!  The flowers and bling are from Michaels.  I believe I found the "Mom" charm at Big Lots (I'm not 100% sure about that.) Foam squares from Darice. DMC Embroidery floss and a cute matching button. The colored cardstock are from stash I've had forever! This card fits a standard A2 envelope.

 This next card I made for my sisters. I used the Cricut Paisley cartridge for this one.  This cartridge has some really awesome images for the teenage girl or young adult female or any cool chick, like my sisters. Love them!
The printed papers is from DCWV Glitter stack.  I also used the Cuttlebug to emboss the flap of the purse.  Bling is from Michaels and ribbon is from Joanns. Oh, yes, the scalloped edge was cut using Fiskars scallop border punch.  I also used a white Sakura gel pen to doodle around the card.

I love the way they turned out!  What do you think?  Thanks once again for stopping by.  Thanks for all the great comments too!
