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 Random.org. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for stopping by & again Happy Hoppin'!!!
