My Mommy & Me - Best Friends

Hey there friends, welcome to this week's Bitten By the Bug 2 Cricut challenge project, my Best Friends My Mommy & Me card.  My very talented Design Team sister, Maureen, selected this week's challenge - Friends Forever.  

I made this My Mommy & Me card for my daughter, from my granddaughter, for Mother's Day.  Avaleigh loved the card - and tracing her hand and writing her name (with help) inside the card - and she loved that it was her mommy and her being best friends!  Bethany has a thing for elephants so the card, other than being made by her mom for her daughter to give to her, was special in that way too.  

I found the basic card in the Make it Now section of Design Space.  I added the various phrases to suit my project.  I also used some of the negative cut branches and added those to the top of the elephants so that my card is more embellished that the original.  

Cartridges used were:

Elephant Card - Crazy Cute Cards Cartridge
Best Friends - A Child's Year Cartridge
My Mommy - Florals Embellished Cartridge
& Me (edited from You & Me) - CM Cheerful Seasons Cartridge
Happy Mother's Day -  Cake Basics Cartridge

I really liked this sweet card and I was so happy that both Avaleigh and her mommy loved it!  

The Bitten By The Bug 2 Design Team did a great job with this week's challenge theme - Friends Forever.  Their projects reflect so many aspects of friendship.

I would like to invite you to join us this week at Bitten By the Bug 2 and share you Friends Forever project(s) with us.  We do love it when you join in the fun!
