My 2010 Thanksgiving/Christmas Craft

You may ask, what is a "Thanksgiving/Christmas craft"?   Well, every year on Thanksgiving day my Mom's family gets together and celebrates Thanksgiving over a nice large meal.  Then when all the dishes are done and put away us "girls" get together and exchange a craft that we made.  I usually have to make appoximately 30.  From one year to the next we could have as few as 20 and the next year about 30.  It is alot of fun to give and to recieve and to see what they come up with every year.  No it does not have to be a Christmas ornament or anything Christmas, just a craft.  I have done jewlery in the past and wreaths.  I enjoy making a variety and so none of them are the same. Since this is my first "real" year with my Cricut Expression, I wanted to come up with something using it.   Well this is what I have come up with to share this year.  I hope you like!

A simple Anniversary Card!

I made this simple yet really pretty anniversary card for my Sister in Law and Brother In Law.  I think it turned out pretty good!
