Super Mom!

If you are just stopping by for the first time this week, this is Celebrating Mom week.  I am posting a card or project for MOM each day.  At the end of this post is a link to the Challenge.  YOU COULD WIN!

Today's card was exciting for me to make.  Why?  Because I got to make it with the new Expression 2!!!!  I was very excited to find out my delivery was 4 days early.   Emily and I got that bad boy down stairs faster than the UPS man brought it to the door.  Back to the card, I love how this new machine came with these great cartridges, preloaded!  Having the handbooks is wonderful {they should print some for the Gypsy preloaded carts for us to purchase} This cut was just perfect for this weeks celebration.

I just love the Car Decals cart, so when this machine was offering Cricut Decals, I knew I must have it!!

This is another A2 card
AC and Recollections papers
I hand cut the mats, used the Welcome Baby Cuttlebug folder {really want Seeing Spots, but I can not find one in stock anywhere!!}, and then stitching around the edge with my sewing machine.
Decal cut was from the preloaded cart Cricut Decals {4"}
Sentiment is SP&Company and Studio G letter stamps
I used 3D foam to add dimension and some inked edges.

I am sure you've seen a ton of "opening the box" videos, so I decided not to do one.   I did take a comparison photo, so for those of you who haven't seen the size difference, can see it.
