Mother's Day cards and one layout

I will post the layout first. I haven't done any layouts this month since this one which was completed on April 4th. I have been to card making focused. This layout is of this little girl I used to babysit. I had so much fun with this page even though I didn't get the sizing right with the letters on my cricut. I am especially proud of myself for using up paper that I think is to pretty to use. I absolutely love this DCWV paper. It has little glittery raised up images on it. So I thought it was perfect that the stamped flowers I made got some bling on them as well and used my much loved Stickles on them. That orange Stickles is so pretty. I also used the Bic Mark-IT markers to color them in. I have since bought the huge pack of the Markits on sale at Wally World for 10 bucks. I love them! Ewww that picture didn't turn out very well.

Now on to the cards. As you can tell six of them have the same design. I got the sketch idea from Got Sketch? and absolutely loved it until I got bored making the same one. Most of the patterned paper is from My Minds Eye, except for the blue, pink and black one and the patterned paper in that one is from Bo Bunny. The flowers are a mixture of Bazzill and three other brands that I don't remember the name of.

So after getting bored with that sketch I went searching for others and came across this one at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. I have three more completed that I haven't gotten pictures of yet and I still have five more to complete! And none of them have anything written on the inside yet .....eeeeeek!!!! I will get them done though. I still have a few weeks. And I am really hoping I can get the Wild Cards cartridge for my cricut that would be so awesome and then I could hopefully knock out those last cards no problem! I really have a hard time uploading and getting things to line up properly on here. Is there some easier way to do this without everything looking all jumbled and discombobulated? Have a great day!
