3 cards and 3 pages

Geesh, it's been a couple of weeks again already! I'm just so bad about getting the pictures taken, which is weird since I usually take at least one picture everyday.
So, anyways, in my quest to use my stash and all of my cartridges, I have actually been making quite a few cards, which isn't my strong suit with the cricut. I don't really LOVE any one of the cards, but I think they are OK. I am just 7 cartridges away from finishing the challenge, which had a due date of April 15th (tax day) I'm not sure I'll make the due date, but I will finish the challenge. I also said I wouldn't buy a new cartridge until I used every one I had, and I've stuck to that, but there are a couple that I really want, so I will definitely finish before too long so that I can start picking them up!
This one I used A Childs Year (which I've already used in the challenge) for the background scallop, which I love. Beyond Birthdays for the sentiment. I wish my orange stickles would have went on smoother, but the texture on the paper messed me up. That, and I guess I need a steadier hand! I actually really like this one, which I mostly scraplifted from the Cricut MB. I used Wild card for the card base, George for the white circle and Indie Art for the butterfly. I also used my cuttlebug, I always forget to use that thing, and it's such a great tool. The "bling" (Randy always laughs when I use that word), is from my stash, I've had them forever, got a bazillion of them from Oriental Trading. They aren't sticky, so I glued them using MS glue, I'm not sure how they would hold up in the mail...

Used Home Accents for the Flourish and Walk in my Garden for the flowers. This one sat on my desk, unfinished for days. I'm still not so sure about it.
Sorry the pictures are all a little dark!

Great cards, Lynn! I love the Butterfly one with the Wild Card Base. Going to have to look for that base! And, the scalloped border for a childs year...very nice! Keep up the great work!

Lynn I don't know what you are talking about because all of the cards I have seen you make with the cricut are just beautiful. I really loved the one you sent me. Good job on keeping up with the cart challenge.
