Congratulations Grad!

I was invited to a graduation party for a friend who used to work as a paraprofessional at my school and has now completed his teaching certificate.  I used Everyday Paper Dolls for the graduation hat and one of the mini folders from the Cuttlebug Congrats 4-piece set.

This card will be entered in the following challenges:
Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog--Congratulations Graduate
Friday Sketch Challenge--sketch 43 (I rotated it in order to make the embossing folder work.)
Little Claire's--#33 Open

Happy Mother's Day

Mother's Day is tomorrow, so I finally got around to working on her card.  I decided to make an identical one for my sister.  This is her first Mother's Day and my mom and I secretly "helped" her babies make her a gift.  My dad took pictures of the process, and I'm going to include those in the card.

Anyway, here is my card:

The rose and the oval came from Quarter Note.  The oval was run through my Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder.  The ribbon is recycled from a shopping bag handle.  I added some i-rock gems on the corners.  The stamp on the front is from the "Spring in Bloom" set from Sweet Cheeks Stamps.

This card will be entered in the following challenges:
