Card Fairies New Ownership

Just last week, I took over the soon to be closed Cricut Card Fairies. I have been a fairy for about two years and loved helping out, and having my own friends and family benefit from being sent cards. Because the original owner is expecting a new baby, she decided it was time to close it up. That hurt my heart, because the fairies are SO wonderful! Thus, I am the proud new commander/owner of the group.

Please take a moment and JOIN US! Missions are sent out every couple of days, and information on how to request missions are included once you join!

This hop is scheduled for February 3rd through the 5th with the fairies who offered blog candy revealing winners on Monday the 6th. Check back after then to see if you have one!

The Cricut Card Fairies were created by Commander Crystal, who found inspiration from the already existent Cards for Soldiers. The Card Fairies accept requests for people and families who may need a pick me up for any sort of reasons.  We are a group of VOLUNTEERS who love our cricuts, love making cards, and love spreading cheer through said cards. We have sent all over the United States, Canada, Australia, and even Germany and other parts of Europe.  We send all types of cards: birthday, good thoughts, sympathy, well wishes, get better soon, and so many more. We currently have sent out over 860 missions since 2008!

Those who may be interested in joining our wonderful group can send an email to :

For my Valentines day creation I have made this WONDERFUL folding card as seen below..

My project was made using my favorite Creative Memories product, the folding accordion card. I am sad to have learned that CM is no longer carrying these, but glad I stocked up! I have made these for gifts for many people. They are a hit! 

Mine tend to be a bit bulky, especially this one as I added TONS of 3D embellies. 

Here is the cover of the card, its so bulky it barley shuts :) 

Long view all stretched out.

I Love lady bugs!! 
Pictures really do not do this project justice! If I had someone to give it to, Id keep it and find something else to give away!!!  (Hubby hates cards and things like this, so why bother!! ) 

I will be drawing for my blog candy, which happens to be the actual card you see above! All you have to do is add your own pictures and give to someone special! Simply comment on this blog post and you will automatically be entered! Check back Monday for the winner! 

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out all the wonderful blogs posted! I hope you enjoyed your visit, and hopefully you can become a follower or follow by email!

Your next stop is: Brenda @

I just love doing these. Some of them are for my families birthdays and other events. (at least January's and some are for the Cricut Card Fairies. A great group of crafters who make and send cards for those who are down and out in thier luck on life. Its a great pick me up for me, and my kids.. who help out sometimes. Nonetheless, its all I have done in the crafty world lately. I hope you enjoy them!

OH! I also just got a new job.. Start Monday! Working part time at Jo-Anns! Scary I know!

One Christmas Gift DOWN!

Finally got a present for the gift giving season all done!

Love this idea, may make me one too!

My mom isn't the best at remembering dates in her young age, so I made up this calender she can use year after year (unless we have additions)

These are made with those Artist Trading Cards (ATC's) and are quite small, but fun to do. Instant gratification! Took me about 2 - 3 hours start to finish, and I am sure my mom will LOVE it :)

Heres the pics!
