Four cards, three layouts and an update!

I am not much of a card maker anymore, I used to be, it used to be all I did really, but since I got my cricut, I mostly put my stamps away and have pretty much become a scrapper, only. I just don't have the ideas for cars anymore for some reason! Anyways, there are a few birthdays coming up, and one way late that I needed to make some cards for. I bought the super cute Paisley cartridge right after Christmas, and really hadn't used it, I had peiced one little mushroom, but that was it, so I decided to use it to make these cards. Most of the paper was scraps, which makes it even better! Of course, I had to cut the cards from full pieces and when I started the white & blue pp was a full sheet, but I did manage to use most of it in doing these cards! Oh, and the background paper on 3 of the cards was also a full piece. The rest were scraps, mostly from my recent camping pages. it's really fun paper by SEI that I got at M's, it's called addison. I really like it. If you have followed my blog for awhile, you know that these colors are a little out of the norm for me as I mostly use really bright colors, but I do really like the way they turned out. Randy, who used to be my biggest supporter, is now my second biggest critic, he didn't like them that well. Tell me what you think!
I also used some skittles that I have had laying around forever, and a nestabilities die that I have had for months, the packages wasn't even open, and of course my paisley cartridge. I have now used 18 of my 46 cartridges on my quest to use them all!

I know, they are all very similar, but still a little bit different at the same time. Sorry the pics are so dark, I am really struggling in that department for some reason.

It looks like I need to take a card class from you. I think it is great that you can use the same papers/supplies for different cards.
