Greeting Cards

This is our Christmas card this year.  I was a little late getting them out, but I sent the last of them yesterday.  It's super cute… and super easy because all cardmakers know… they need to be easy when you're mass-producing them.

It's time for another challenge over at Scrap, Stamp & Doodle Saturdays and this time you can't use any stamped images… only sentiments (however, you can use die-cuts, embellies, etc).  Here's what I have for you.  It's the first time I've used my Cricut for a CARD. Challenges covered: (1) Squigglefly – Use ribbon; (2) Read more
