Wonderful friend! card made using the NEW Cricut Essentials cartridge.

 Hello, everyone!

Joy and I are planning on doing a second day of E2 Q and A because you guys had even more questions about the machine today. We have not decided When we will do it, but it will be soon. In the meantime leave your questions on yesterday's post.

Today's card is made using the NEW E2 and the pre-loaded cartridge Cricut Essentials cartridge. This cartridge is the new and improved Accent Essentials. It has lots of fun basic shapes, but also has some whimsical stuff like this flower.

I used Papertrey Ink paper, ribbon, and stamp.
I cut the flower out at3" and the leaves out at 1 1/2". The top note like cut was cut out at 3".

 Thanks for dropping by today. Make sure you check back in tomorrow to see the awesome project Joy has for you. You are going to love it!

Also don't forget to be leaving comments all week for the best chance to win the Imagine!

Have a wondrous Wednesday!

Be sure and check out Joy's and Melanie's personal blogs for more creative goodness at Obsessed with Scrapbooking and Courtney Lane Designs! Have a great day!

I love the card - it's great! If I understand It correctly the E2 limited comes with 2 cartridges that we may already have - is that correct? The one that is coming out later will have 2 new cartridges that no one will have?
