Thank you card with Cricut E2

Hi everyone! Its been a long time since my last post, almost a year I think.
     I finally got back in my craftroom and did some organizing and decided to open my new Cricut E2 that I got at Thanksgiving. I know, I should have opened it and tested it out months ago but I was intimidated by the thought of trying it out. Ive heard so many negatives about it and wasnt sure if I was up to messing with it. (But I did buy the darn thing so I need to turn it on!) My crafting buddies Brenda and Vickie told me it was a learning curve and boy is it. I got it all set up, turned it on, and my fears were layed to rest. Yes, there is a bit of reading and figuring out but it went smoothly. There are some things I would definitely like to change about my E2 that would make it more user friendly but I just need to stick with it.
     I made a simple card using the images that are preloaded in the machine. I also used vellum flowers that my friend Vickie gave me.


  1. Very pretty. I hope you have a lot of fun with it.

  2. What a fabulous card Terri! I'm so happy you got your E2 out and tried it out. Once you've played around with it some you will be good to go. There are some things I'd like to change on it too, but it is still a nice machine. I love the papers you used on this card and Vickie's flowers are perfect! I think your mojo is back!! Hugs!

  3. Its a very pretty card - love the ribbon bow and the Thank you cut - love those flowers too. TFS
