Thank You Cards Using Cricut Artiste and Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridges

Hello everyone.  I hope you are having a great week and staying cool.  It is hot again in Southern CA; but it is still a fantastic place to live.  I am trying to get caught up on my Thank You cards; so I created two more over the holiday weekend.  I love this CTMH Clementine Paper Packet.  It has so many different patterns in it; which all coordinate so well with each other.  I love these fall colors. They are so bright and pretty.  Check out our other new paper packets in the new Autumn/Winter Idea Book as they are so gorgeous.  You will love them.
