Exploring Cricut Christmas Card Blog Hop

Welcome to the Exploring Cricut Christmas Card Blog Hop.  If you have come from Michelle's, then you have come to the last stop.  We hope that you found lots of inspiration along the way and if you missed any, I have a list at the bottom and you can start again or go back to the Exploring Cricut page.  For this hop I created a couple cards.  I have been busy making things for my granddaughters school and thought I would throw in some cards too!  For my cards, I used the cartridges Sesame Street Seasons, Winter Woodland, CTMH Art Philosophy and Teresa Collins December 25.  Below the pictures are the cuts and materials.  I hope you join us for the challenge this week too!  Create your own card and link by Saturday.
