Cameo Mother's Day Cards...

Hey Ya'll,
I hope everyone is having a great week!  Unfortunately, I got pretty ill.  There has been so much going on and with such a mild winter, the allergens have been just terrible.  I think everything has just caught up with me.  Sick or not, I had lots of friends at work that needed Mother's Day cards, so I stayed busy through the whole thing.  Hee! Hee!

Today, I have three cards to share with you.  I didn't have time to do my normal fancy pictures, so hopefully, you don't mind a black screen for the background.  Michele, over at Thoughts of a Card Making Scrapbooker did this AMAZING Mother's Day Card, so I took cues from that to make several cards.  I will be sharing more variety in this pattern throughout the week.  Michele is a designer for several areas with Cricut, including the Circle and it was a Circle Design that she did that this came from.  So... Thanks Michele! Also, Theresa over at Scrappers Anonymous has really been using her Imagine a lot lately and inspired me to blow the dust off and play!  So... Thanks Theresa!  I don't know what I would do without your inspiration!
I used the Imagine to print background paper for all of these.  The cameo is cut at a height of 5.50.  For this one, I added a label shape from CTMH AP and stamped it with a My Craft Spot stamp.
For this one, I used paper that I printed with the Imagine too.  It had been so long since I used the machine and this was the first page that I printed.  The color cartridge wasn't printing right and this page turned out to have a tomato red colored print on it.  The funny thing is that it's supposed to be brown.  The color was beautiful, so I printed another couple of pages before I changed out the cartridge.  Hee! Hee!  Everything was inked with cocoa.  I stamped the sentiment and then hand cut the banner with a craft knife.
For this one, I also printed this beautiful paper.  The card base is navy blue, but it's a little card to see with the black background.

Well, I hope you enjoy the cards today.  Thanks so much for visiting!
