Happy Birthday Cricut Card Fairies

If you're following the Fantabulous Cricut Crawl, click HERE.
So glad you stopped by because it's a special day!

Welcome to the Cricut Card Fairy Blog Hop.   We are celebrating because the Card Fairies turned three years old yesterday.  The Card Fairies are a group of crafting volunteers who love to send cards to those who need them.  To date, we have sent over 750 missions.  That's over 750 smiles and hugs via cards.  It's quite amazing, don't you think?
I joined the Card Fairies because I love crafting and felt it was a wonderful way to use my craft to offer support  and caring thoughts to those that need a little lift.  If you are interested in becoming a card fairy, you can email Crystal at cricutcardfairyarmy@gmail.com

This is the second stop along the hop.  You should have arrived from Crystal's blog.  If you get lost along the way, you can always return there for the complete list.

Of course I made a birthday card to celebrate the occasion.

The patterned paper is from Reminisce.  I cut extra flowers, inked and pop dotted them to add dimension.  I also added Liquid Pearls and Signo Pen doodling here and there.

If you leave a comment, your name will go into a drawing for BLOG CANDY - you heard right, how fun is that?  I have some Basic Grey chip stickers and brads, and some Bo Bunny stickers to give away.  Be sure you leave a way for me to contact you.  The random drawing will be Monday morning and I'll post the winner on my blog.  Woohoo!!

Also, I'm trying to reach 175 followers by Sunday night (it's OK if I go over - lol).  If you become a follower, there will be a second drawing for followers only.  The prize is a $15 gift certificate to My Sheri Crafts. 

Now it's time to get hopping.  Your next stop is Rachelle.
Hugs and Happy Crafting

Isn't it great to be able to do something you love (making cards) and be able to help other through it! It is seriously the best feeling! I don't do the card fairies, but donate the proceeds from my cards to a cause I am passionate about too!

And beautiful birthday card - love the springy colors! Congrats on being so close to 175 followers! I'm a follower already!
