To qualify for the gift certificates, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used. If you use a Cricut Explore machine, at least one cut must be from the Cricut catalog of images.

There is a limit of three entries per person.

Be sure to visit each Design Team member leave a comment and become a follower - those will be put into a drawing for their blog candy (if offered).

Here is our blog hop list for Mother's Day challenge #300!
Here's my Mother's Day Project:


Cricut Cartridge:  Everyday Pop-Up Cards
Card stock:  My stash
Bling & Baker's Twine:  My stash

I made the tea pot into a card by cutting two light pink images and gluing them together together at the top after adding the hot pink overlay.  I also cut the flowers and added bling to the centers.  I hand wrote Happy Mother's Day on the tag and attached it to the handle with Baker's Twine.

I actually collect tea pots so I enjoyed making this shaped card.  I may even make a few more later!

And I have a bit of Blog Candy:





Become a follower, if you are not already, and leave me a comment.  I will randomly choose a winner from the comments and send that person the blog candy.  I will announce the winner on May 10.

Thanks for visiting!
