Welcome to

The North Pole

To the North Pole I'd like to go,

Waiting there for you and me;

Where they make the toys so busily!

In his wonderful reindeer sleigh,
Santa would whisk us all away;
Flying merrily,

Non stop to the NORTH POLE!!

I created several cards with my Cricut for today's hop.  I recently had a free 72 hour membership to Cricut Access.   I used A Quilted Christmas for many of these cuts.  I found so many images on that cart, I might have to have it!

First is Santa and Mrs. Claus, I used an American Craft 6x6 paper pad with some Stampin Up card stock and ribbon.  I used several specialty papers for the cuts.

There was a couple of options for Santa and Mrs. Claus, for her I chose the more ornate cut.  I just loved the details of the sleeves and apron.  Santa and the elves fancier versions just weren't worth the extra effort, but I just loved this Mrs. Claus.

Next I made some elves!

Cricut A Quilted Christmas and Jolly Holidays cart
American Craft Merry Mint & Traditional Christmas 6x6 paper pads
misc papers and card stock
Stampin Up punches, ribbon and sentiment
Momenta sentiment stamp
American Craft red pigment ink
Judikins clear embossing powder
lots of pop dots, all my characters are popped up

Next head on over to Santa's workshop to visit with Sandy's blog!
