Cricut Card Fairy Blog Hop

Welcome to the Cricut Card Fairy Blog Hop. This month we are practicing being thankful for all the blessings in our lives. What are you thankful for? I personally am thankful for A LOT. First would have to be God, he gives me the strength to make it through some of the most difficult things in life! I am also very thankful for my wonderful husband & parents. My husband means the world to me, he is extremely supportive of anything I do. My parents (and husband) are my best friends, I can talk to them about anything & I am very thankful to have that kind of relationship with them. Of course I can't forget my friends. My friends have helped me through some tough times in life & it really does prove no matter how long you go without speaking with an old friend, you pick up right where you left off & I am thankful to still have some of my childhood friends in my life! Do you appreciate the small things in life? I surely do, it's the small things that make things what they are! With that in mind us wonderful fairies have put together some awesome THANKSGIVING/THANKFUL themed crafty items. Along the way there will be opportunities for inspiration and blog candy. So make sure you hop all the way through, leave comments on every blog as we all love reading your comments. Crystal will be giving away a BNIP Hello Kitty Greetings cart to a person that leaves a comment on all blogs during the hop. If you have just come from KarelJ's then you are in the right spot. If you just happened upon my blog & want to start at the beginning of the hop click HERE. I will have a list of all the blog's posted after my projects & blog candy in case you get lost along the way. Hope you enjoy my projects & Happy Hoppin'!!!
I used my new Create-A-Critter cart for all my projects today (I fell in love with that cart when I got it). I used my Gypsy to weld the shadow feature together to make this cute turkey card. I cut the card & all layers at 4". I used my I-Rock & Stickles to add some bling to him. Next is this cute card...
I wanted something simple but cute. I used PKS Everyday Face Assortment on the leaves, white gel pen for the eyes, adhered the bow using some Zip Dry glue & added some faux stitching. Next up are these cute wooden tags...
I got the wooden tags at Joanns (they came in a pack of about 8 for 1.00). I covered them in cardstock & patterned paper then sponged some ink around the edges & added ribbon. I added more of the cute leaves I had cut out & outlined them with faux stitching. Then used my I-Rock to add some bling to them. Here are all the projects together...
And last but not least here is some blog candy that I'm giving away. It includes The Paper Company Studio Snowflake Clear Stamps, Cuttlebug Spots & Dots Folder & some dimensionals from Stampin' Up! (We can never have to many dimensionals can we?!?!) All you have to do is leave a comment on this post & I will choose a winner on Monday using Make sure you leave a way for me to get in contact with you. I don't require that you become a follower or anything, however if you like my work I would love to have you follow my blog =)
Now hop on over to Gina's blog as she is next up & I'm sure she has something wonderful in store for you as well.

If your wondering what Cricut Card Fairies are, well we are a group of people from the cricut messageboard that gets emails sent to us by our "Fairy Commander" & if we can, we make cards for almost any request you can think possible! This is something that we aren't paid to do (I've been asked that before). We do this out of the kindness of our hearts because we know that whoever is on the receiving end of our cards will have a smile on their face when they get homemade cards from people that they don't even know! It has brought me joy to know that I have been able to put smiles on others faces. If you would like more info about this click here or you could send an email to Thank you for stopping by & again Happy Hoppin'!!!

Blog Hop Update

Just wanted to let you know that the dates have changed just a bit for the hop. It will now be on Nov 20th & 21st. I am working on my post, I have all the projects done & can't wait for you to see them. I have heard through the grapevine that there will be some blog candy along the way so you won't want to miss it. We would love it if you have the time to make a stop by each blog & leave some love (comments) as we all like to read them. I am finishing this small post with one of my 1st cricut projects. Last year my husband wanted me to make him something "goofy" to keep at his desk & wanted it to be kinda a Thanksgiving themed thing so I made him this....

He named him "Gobbles" & he was cut from Stretch your Imagination at I believe just a little under 12". "Gobbles" stayed put on the fridge until a couple days ago when Anthony (hubby) took him back to work..we still laugh at "gobbles" every time we see goofy lol. Hope you have a good night & hope you stop back by for the blog hop!

My 1st Blog Hop =)

I am going to be in the Cricut Card Fairy Blog Hop that is a Thanksgiving/Thankful themed blog hop with 14 people (including myself as of the last email) taking place Nov 19th-21st. This is the 1st Blog Hop that I've ever been in & am excited about it! There was a sale on cricut carts & my hubby told me to go ahead & get the 2 that I've been dying to I now own Simply Charmed & Create-A-Critter. I've been wanting Create-A-Critter since it came out & how do I love it. I've already made a couple of projects using that cart. I also got my PKS in the mail, I purchased Everyday Face Assortment & Everyday Character Face Parts & have been using those on some of the things that I've made. I also got my Don Juan cart that I used my cricut rewards points on, I love that font. Today started off wonderful, I woke up to an email that I was the lucky winner of PKS Our 2 Angels In Heaven stampset from Vivienne @ Crafting Haven. She is one of the DT members for PKS. Just wanted to do a small update before the hop, now back to my crafting I Hope you all have a great night & hope you stop by during the hop!!!

Birthday Card

My friend's birthday is next week...eeek!!! I had out-patient surgery on my back yesterday & am just now able to get back into my craft room. Here is the very simple card I made for her using her 2 favorite & silver.
I used Smiley Carts for this present & ran it through my Cuttlebug using Spots & Dots for the main portion of it & then used Swiss Dots & colored over the dots using my Stampin Write Marker (I popped up the "ribbon" on the present using some dimensionals & adhered it to the front base using my ATG714). I used some frost Smooch Spritz spray & then I added this cute litte face from PK-490 Everyday Character Face Assortment & used my white gel pen to add some faux stitching. Here is the inside of the card :

I used Don Juan for the font (I just love this font), of course I used my lovely gyspy & welded everything together. After cutting & using some frost Smooth Spritz spray I used my Zig 2 Way to adhere it & then added some faux stitching with my while gel pen. Hope you enjoy =)

**I am going to be in a blog hop (my first ever, I'm so excited) on Nov 19th-21st. As soon as I have the line up of the others that are going to be involved I will make a post with that info, hope you will be able to hop along with me =)**

Have a wonderful weekend!!! If you haven't already check out the blog hop that is going on for PKS, 1st stop will be Peachy Keen Stamps Blog, there are some WONDERFUL projects from very talented ppl!!!

Baby Shower Stuff

I made some favor boxes & cupcakes for my friends baby shower that was this past Sunday Here are some pics of them :

These boxes I got at the dollar store for 12 of them they measure 3"x3"x2-14". I trimmed some pattern paper I got from Joann's & cut that down to 2.75" for each box.

Filled each one of them up with some goodies =)....and here are the cupcakes...

My hubby did the food coloring in the icing to try & match the color blue cardstock that I used from Cordenations. I used Plantin Schoolbook, Accent Essentials, New Arrival & Lyrical Letters to do the toppers for the cupcakes. Thanks for stopping by =)
