Thank You Cards Using CTMH Chantilly and Cricut Artiste Cartridge

Hi to all you wonderful crafters in blog land.  I hope everyone is doing well.  The weather has been hot and humid here. I always wonder what the weather is like in other countries.  I know there are winters when we are warm and summers when we are cold; but I would love to hear from some of you living anywhere - US or overseas.  I am interested in the kind of weather you are having and what season you prefer.
I created these Thank You cards several months ago; but hadn't had time to post them.  I used my favorite CTMH paper for these.  There are so many colors in the Chantilly paper pack that I am amazed at what you can create with it.  Here are the last 3 cards I created with the Chantilly paper packet.  The other 2 that I created were on February 28th.  These five cards demonstrate several of the papers in the Chantilly packet; but not all of the pages have been used.

    Talking about the weather, here in New Zealand its winter and last night we had our coldest night.
