Here is our blog hop list for Mother's Day challenge #300!
We can't wait to see your projects!

For my project today I've created a pretty diecut Mother's Day card and matching tag using the Cricut Alphabet set! I was so excited to come across this set in Design Space, and it was free, which is awesome! I used one of the scalloped circle bases to create my card front and welded two bottom layers to create a scalloped card base. 

I grabbed some Distress Inks to add a bit of shading around the edges of my diecuts and layered them together, popping up the pretty flower.

Inside, I used the 'write' feature with one of the Cricut Signature Script fonts and then coloured in the letters with a Jane Davenport Mermaid Marker. I used some pretty sequins from SpiegelMom Scraps both on the front of my card as well as inside.

This lacey cut was perfect to create a tag, and I added two circles to the front so I could write a little message. I added some pretty pink twine and a few more sequins to finish it off.

BLOG CANDY!! I'm also offering a sweet prize - a $10 gift certificate to the SpiegelMom Scraps shop!! I will be choosing one person to win from everyone who leaves a comment on this blog post. Winner to be chosen from comments left by Saturday May 13th at 11:59 MST, and will be announced Monday May 15th - so be sure to check back!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Now, you can head over to Carol's blog to see the awesome project she's created. Wishing you good luck and a fabulous week! Be sure to stop at the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog at the end to leave a comment there as well and enter your own project for a chance to win one of the awesome gift certificates!!
