Thank You Cards Using CTMH Chantilly With Cricut Artiste and Art Philosophy Cartridges

March 1st Blog Hop for Damask Divas Using CTMH Chantilly Paper Packet. 

Hello all you wonderful followers, bloggers, crafters and friends.  I am so happy to be able to join my team for another fabulous blog hop.  This is a creative group of ladies and they always surprise me with their talent.  I hope you will take the time to visit each blog and leave them some love.  There is a drawing for everyone who registers.  The Blog Hop list is on the Damask Diva blog

If you came from Teri's blog; then you are in the right place.  If this is your first stop on the blog hop; you can start with Mandy's blog or visit the Damask Diva blog for a complete list.  Enjoy the hop and get started for some fabulous creations!
I created Thank You cards for my business; which could be changed to a birthday or other occasion if you desired.  I love this Chantilly paper packet.  It has so many colors and versatility that it can be used for many celebrations and/or holidays.   This is just two of the beautiful colors in this packet.  I created 8 cards with this paper, 2 of 4 different colors; but I only have 2 displayed here.  I love how so many of these shapes coordinate with each other on the Cricut Artiste Cartridg and I love the doilies on this cartridge.

  29. These are great idea for when you need a batch of cards in hurry . Lovely card design , perfect papers and sentiment labels .

  30. First is the replica watches uk very special limited-edition Bulova Chronograph A “Surfboard” Ref. 98A251, which is fake rolex designed to be as close to the original as possible. It’s done in a stainless steel case measuring 38.5mm-wide and 16.7mm-thick and outfitted on a matching steel replica rolex bracelet. The centerpiece of the off-white dial is the blue oval “surfboard” housing the running seconds fake watches sub-dial at 9 o’clock and 30-minute register for the chronograph at 3 o’clock. The orange-tipped hour and minutes hand match the bright orange central chronograph rolex replica hand, both echoing the dash of color from the vintage Deep Sea fake rolex uk Chronograph A.
