ABC cuts..a Cricut MB swap..

So I love a good swap and this one was right up my alley for swaps! I love when I can use my cricut to create the swap was to create something with your cricut using each letter in the alphabet except for the letter X...I think it is funny though out of all the carts I have..I seemed to use the same ones over and over LOL!
