Thank You Cards Using Cricut Artiste Cartridge and Clementine Paper

Hello everyone.  I feel like November is about being grateful for everything and everyone in your life.  I feel grateful all year long; but this time of year makes me very introspective about my life.  I have read over the years that we become introspective when the weather starts to get cooler; so I always think of fall as falling back.  It's a good time to look within and to listen to what your inner self is feeling or needing.  A time to regroup, look at your priorities and a time to share your gratitude with those you love. 
 
I am very grateful for my life and for all the people who are part of that life.  That includes you - everyone who reads my blog; who follow my creations and for all those who leave the lovely compliments.  I want to make sure you know that I am very grateful for each and every one of you.  I feel the blogging world is one big happy family, cheering each other on with our encouragement and loving compliments for each other.  I appreciate all of you and I am so happy that you are part of my life. 
 
 
I created some new Thank you cards that I wanted to share.  They are very simple.  These two cards are my way of saying thanks to all of you and to let you know how much I appreciate you. 

Card # 1





Card # 2

    1. Hi Micki. I have finally learned how to use my center point on my Cricut to cut the digi stamps using a shape. I can't cut a straight line and find it difficult cutting out an image. LOL!! But - Cricut makes it easier for me!! Thanks for your compliment. Have a lovely weekend! Hugs, Gloria
