Hello Friend cards for Operation Write Home

While I am on my spending freeze for 2 months I am trying to get 30 cards made for Operation Write Home. I have gotten about 10 done so far and recently completed these two, "hello friend" cards to add to the pile.
I made the first one using my new Cricut Circle cartridge, Sophie. I used one of the label cuts to create the ring of flowers on the front. The "hello friend" cut is from Beyond Birthdays.
For the second card I used the leftovers of the same papers I used one the first one and instead of the ring of flowers I just used a simple layering effect and the reverse cut of "hello friend" for the card title.
I hope I  can complete the 30 by the end of my spending freeze and get them sent off. On a side note the polka dot paper is from My Mind's Eye Antique Dots stack, which I am trying hard to use in one years time (Chloe basically challenged me).
