Welcome to our Thin Cuts Blog Hop!  This hop features our newest Thin Cuts that are available in the Seasonal Expressions 1 catalog!  If you came from Wendy Kessler's Blog you are on the right track!  If you are just starting the hop, it is a big circle so when you get back to me, you will know you finished the hop!  You will find the next blog to hop to at the bottom of my post!
