         This is the Holiday banner I made.

We were all to make a banner for the winter holidays and a card. The banners will go to brighten up some children's lives and the cards to let them know we care. My banners are double sided . Here are the photos of my banners-both sides  and cards.
 The last 3 photos are closeups so you can see them better. Now for the next side of my banner.

This banner is my Winter banner. There are closeups for both sides here too.

                                              This is the other side and the closeups.

                                              These are my cards. A little cheer for the children.
                                                          The inside of the cards.
 If you want details of which Cricut cartridges I used  and size settings let me know and I will get back to you. Please leave your e-mail so I can.
