Birthday Card using my Cricut E2

Hi everyone! I hope everyone had a great weekend. Last Thursday, I received my Cricut E2. I was estactic when it arrived. It was sooner than expected. I didn't get to open it till Friday night since I have been so busy. Even my husband was excited to open up the box with me. My husband and I went into my Craft/ Scrapbook Room and tried out the E2 to get a fill for it. It was a bit tricky for me since I'm use to my smaller Cricut Personal Create machine. I know once I get the hang of it, I will get better at it.
 Here are a few pics of when I opened it: I opened my box in my bedroom since I was so tired from a fun Girl's Day Out with my mom and sister. We took off to the Casino Morongo in Cabazon, California where I won $80 bucks. Hmm... maybe I can get myself a new cartridge. LOL

 Now, I had to rearrange my Craft/Scrapbook Room 
a bit around to make room for the E2. LOL

So today, I got to finally create something with my E2. Again, please bare with my with the card I made since I'm getting use to the machine. My Father-n-Law will be celebrating his birthday on 5 de Mayo (May 5th) and I wanted to make him a fun card using one of the pre-loaded cartridges that the E2 came with. Here is what I created.

It's Your Birthday Card Recipe:
Just a Note Pre-Loaded Cartridge on E2: Rabbit Size 5.25 Card Style
Card stock Colors: Light Blue (Seaside Color), Dark Blue, Red, White, Black, Polka Dot
Queen & Co. : Black Pearls & Baby Blue Pearls
Green buttons, Googly Eyes
Red Embossing Powder 

 I will place a gift card inside of the card as he opens it.

Well, I think it turned out well. But, again, still learning all the features that the E2 comes with. Also, if anyone knows by any chance, I registered my machine on But, I didn't receive a Redeem Certificate to recieve the 500 Reward Points on Cricut Rewards. By any chance, has anyone done it or knows what I can do to get my reward points. Any help or advise will be greatly appreciated. Thanks again for stopping by.

P.S. I will be participating in a Disney Blog Hop on May 7th. Make sure to hop along with us as I will have some Blog Candy and amazing projects to show.

Have a great week friends!
