Exploring Cricut ~ Christmas Card Blog Hop


Welcome to Exploring Cricut's Christmas Card Blog Hop!  If you arrived here from Sharon's fabulous blog, you are in the right place!  The goal this time is to give you bunches of Christmas card ideas.  I REALLY wanted to pull out some of my newer Christmas cartridges but made a conscience effort NOT to.  I wanted to use a cartridge that doesn't see as much love from me as it should.  So I pulled out Winter Frolic, a cart I ordered a few years back as a Black Friday special.  I think I paid $15 dollars for it...  and then wondered what I would do with it...  lol...  Does that ever happen to you? 

So here's my card featuring Winter Frolic...

Haha. Half the items in my craft room are a "ooh great deal - I MUST have it!" and once I brought it home...I don't know what I'm going to do with this. :) This is a great card! Thanks for the inspiration!

I like how the bird cage with the birds pops off the card wonderfully. I use to raise Ring-Neck Doves when I grew up in on E coast of FL. Enjoying the blog hop.
