Mother's Day cards

I made up these cards for mother's day one was for my mother.  They were pretty simple.  The top one was made using white paper, distress ink and a Tim Holtz's background stamps.  I then cut the cameos out on the cricut using the Heritage Cartridge.  Then I punched out the "tag" using an ek punch distressed them then stamped using another Tim Holtz's stamp and stamped the sentiment (inkadinkadoo) I put the sentiment on using 3-D foam and added some pearl bling.  

On a side note I'm loving the new ek punches that fold down.  I wish there was a way to trade in all my punches for them.  They need to do a trade in program.  I'm not going to dump all my punches (which isn't too much by the way).  I have my cricut and I love my cricut more then anything.  I can cut just about anything out on it which is great, but once and awhile I want a quick and easy shape for a card or project, so I have a small collection of very basic shapes and to be honest I use them just enough to justify picking up a special one here and there.  Which leave me with a question for you...

Do you own punches and if you do what is the one you use the MOST?  Which do you you use the least? 
Pin It Now!

Your cards are beautiful as always Ginger and I understand about the punches. I haven't used any of mine in quite a while and I wish I could trade mine in but then I don't have a cricut. My circle punches are the ones I use the most and the flower ones. Least? I don't even know.

Love your work. It's always grand.
