Christmas card swap hosted by Cricut Crafts

Hi Everyone!

I'm back for a little while.... Just wanted to show the cards I made for a Christmas Card Swap I joined. It was a small group which was good for me because of family life adjustments here and there (new baby) but I really wanted to join something this year. It ended up being 6 of us total so I only had to make 5 cards but I made an extra card which I will mail out to a Hello Kitty fan/bloggy friend lol. Anyway, here are my Hello Kitty snow globe cards:

I hadn't really used my Cricut in a long time and on top of that I hadn't
used my Hello Kitty cartridge in a really long time.  
 The cards measure 5x7. 
Carts I used are: Hello Kitty Greetings, Create a Critter and Joys of the Season.
I used Stikles for the falling snow holes. 
The snowflakes are from Martha Stewart's Aspen Snowflake around the page punch set .
The Hello Kitty rubber stamp on the envelope is from Target.
The "Merry Christmas" sentiment is from My Creative Time.
The Buttons on Hello Kitty's coat are from Viva Decor Pearl Pens
Here is a close up of the card. I mailed all of these in 
cellophane envelopes so that my recipients were able to use
blank envelopes... I mailed them all out on the 1st of December 
I hope all of the ladies have received them. I'm still waiting for one card.
The ladies are: Lourdes (swap host), Luz, Jessie, Gloria, Gina and myself (Katya)
You can request to join the facebook group at:
There are a lot of talented ladies there. 
Some even have YouTube videos with tutorials.
I love the cards I received. I hope I wasn't too bad for my first swap
and hope they liked the cards I made for them. 
Can you believe my daughter Jade got to do a card swap before me? LOL
 I'd like to finish stating this was a fun experience for me
especially checking my mailbox with my daughter Jade and opening the cards together.

Thanks for stopping by.
