A Make and Take I did... the last local Crop I attended. It was all done with the Exclusive Close To My Heart Cricut Cartridge! If you have a Cricut but not this cartridge you need to do yourself a favor and get it!!! It is still my #1 go to cartridge that I own.

Wow! Slacking on my blog but NOT on my creativity!

Here is a Thank You card I made for someone who participated in my last CTMH Gathering.
