Exploring Cricut ~ Merci!

Welcome! What a wild few weeks it has been. With my mother's accident and subsequent surgery there has been little time for crafting. But so many people have been so very kind to pitch in and help me. So there is definitely no shortage of people this lovely thank you card can go to!

 For today's project I pulled out a new cart for me, French Manor, to capture a bit of elegance for Exploring Cricut.
