Enjoy today card made using the NEW Cricut Mother's Day Bouquet cartridge

Hello, friends!

I hope you are all well today! I am going out with my two buddies(Joy and Bryan) today on a fun trip to a scrapbooking store in Waxahachie,  Texas.  It is next to the most wonderful cafe that has the best tea, soups, and quiche! We plan on shopping have having a fabulous lunch. I just can't wait. I have not been there in nearly a year now because we have been so busy. We have very few scrapbooking stores in the Dallas area anymore and this is one of the best of the three. I am so excited!!

Today's card is made using the Mother's Day Bouquet mini. Not only are there lots of fun flowers, but there are some scalloped shapes that look great stamped and layered.

I used Close to My Heart paper and ribbon.

I cut the scallop out at 3" and then again at 2 3/4".
The stamps are from Verve and Papertrey Ink.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I will give you guys the deets on our day trip tomorrow!

Have  wonderful Wednesday!

Love the card!! And I'm excited to hear about your scrapbook stores... I haven't looked real hard here in the Dallas area, but am interested in finding more (My husband might not be interested in me finding more, though!) even if they're in Waxahachie!

Beautiful card as always! Have a great day! I went to college in Waxahachie but that was long before my scrapbooking days! The town has grown a ton since I moved from there 11 years ago.

Have fun!!

What a wonderful card. I really NEED that one. You are right, scrapbooking stores are rare in this area and the good one in the Hurst area just closed.

I orderd this cartridge and am waiting for it to arrive. Love it! BUT, I am a Close To My Heart consultant and am concerned that you are showing our new papers that we aren't suppose to be showing yet. : c (

Pretty card, I love the layered scallops!

Can't wait to hear all about your trip - sounds so fun!

jamme said...

Like the card, especially the scallops.
Sounds like a fun trip that you are taking. I am going with a couple of girlfriends on Jan 8th to Crafts Direct in St Cloud, MN. I can't wait. We live about an hour south of there and I know it will be a fun trip and that we will be there for a few hours checking everything out.
Have fun shopping and let us know all about it especially any new products you find.

Love the scallop flowers and the ruffle ribbon! I'm sure you had fun at the scrap shop! Not a lot of choices in my area, either, except for big box stores.

Have a great fun day! My New Year's resolution was to slow down on the new cartridge purchases--but I can already tell that I will have trouble keeping that resolution! Love the colors on this card and the ribbon treatment.
