Thank You Cards Using CTMH Ivy Lane Paper,Cricut Artiste and Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridges

Hi fellow crafters!  I hope everyone had a fabulous 4th of July.  We didn't do much; although we did go to an awesome bakery restaurant in Burbank called Portos.  They have the most wonderful food. It was my first time to eat there; and I had a tuna salad croissant, (best I ever had), a garden salad; a meat pie and a wonderful green tea smoothie.  The smoothie was so cool, refreshing and delicious! Of course; for dessert I had a wonderful chocolate creation called "Persian".  My husband had brought me one about a month ago; when he and his son visited this famous Cuban bakery.  It just melts in your mouth!  That was my big highlight of the weekend; which was a really big deal to me; as I love good food!  LOL!  If anyone lives in Southern CA; you have to try it!

I created these cards in June; but haven't had time to share them until now.  I used the different papers in CTMH Ivy Lane paper packet; which is one of my favorites in the current Idea book.  If you like them; get them soon; as the current Idea book ends July 31st.  They also have a card kit and a scrapbooking workshop with this paper pack.

I found a wonderful card bade on the Cricut Artiste that I really love; so I made several cards using this card base.  I also cut all the dies from this same cartridge.  I made the inside to match the outside; which I rarely do; but it just seemed to fit this set of cards.
