Have a nice day daffodil card made using the Spring Cottage and Artiste cartridges.

Hello, friends!

Today's card is one I really loved making. As most of you know, I am crazy about daffodils. For some reason when I make projects using daffodil cuts, it always comes together so easily. This card was no exception. It flowed from me!

I used the Spring Cottage cartridge, the Artiste cartridge, the Dream Pop paper pack, and the May stamp of the month. I cannot say enough about this month's specials. The paper is fab and that stamp set has some really great sentiments.

This gorgeous embossed paper is from the Dream Pop paper pack. See below for details on how to get it!
The sentiment is from this month's stamp of the month an is called Pinwheel.

  Don't forget this week's giveaway is the Damask Decor cartridge!

Your card is beautiful those daffodils are so pretty they are one of my favorite flowers too. The paper here are awesome and my goodness your color scheme is so pretty too. The CTMH cartridges just seem to work with everything glad I have them and of course the Spring Cottage cartridge too. I always love the way you do flowers.

Your card is so fresh and spring like! I love the daffys on the front. The patterned paper really gives more interest and the doily background is perfect for the pretty bouquet.
The real ones are just starting to pop up here and they look so lovely!Ahhhh...spring!
Thanks for sharing your pretty card! :)

Beautiful card! I finally broke down and bought Spring Cottage as a digital cart as I couldn't find it anywhere as a real cart. Loving those Artiste and Art Philosophy carts too. So happy it's spring, and that's the perfect card for it : D.

Just saw Ohhh Snap's comment about buying Spring Cottage as a digital cartridge which is not a bad thign to do since this cartridge does not come with a booklet and only comes with a keyboard template. I now like that the Cricut CraftRoom allowsd for download to the Gypsy. This past wk they had a sale of 33% off the digital cartridges and I bought Teresa Collins Basics & Zodiac which are Cricut Craftroom exclusives. They had given me $20 in my account for linking my Gypsy to the Cricut Craftroom and the $20 needed to be used by mid May. Not bad since asfter subtracting the 420 it only cost me 98 cents for the 2 cartridges with the 33% off and no shipping. Next morning the cartridges were in my download Cricut Craftroom file and I have them on my Gypsy as well.

Lovely card! The first spring my husband and I were married, he stopped and picked a handful of wild daffodils on his way home from the base (we are a military family) Now 53 years later he still surprises me with little things. That card brought back a sweet memory. Thanks.

Thank you for the chance to win such a nice cartridge.

I seldom write responses, but i did a few searching and wound up here "Have a nice day daffodil card made using the Spring Cottage and Artiste cartridges.".
And I actually do have 2 questions for you if you tend
not to mind. Is it simply me or does it look like a few of these responses look as if they are
coming from brain dead people? :-P And, if you are posting on additional places,
I'd like to keep up with anything fresh you have to post. Would you list of every one of all your communal pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
