Christmas Thank You Cards

The past few days I've been creating Christmas thank you cards, which is also the latest challenge over at Winter Wonderland.

I receive a lot of crafting supplies for Christmas, my birthday, even my wedding anniversary (such a dear, sweet hubby!), so when I make thank you cards, I try to incorporate what I received in the card. This year I got a Cricut Expression, the Storybook cartridge, and 50 States cartridge from my hubby (told ya he was sweet!) and my dear mother-in-law. My brother & dsil, Megan, gave me the Winter Woodlands cartridge. I've been playing and having so much fun getting to know my Cricut!

Here are some of the cards I've made so far:

Looks like you've figured out that Cricut pretty well already! Way to go girl! These creations are beautiful!
