Are you ready to hop with the Cricut Card Fairies?????

*************PLEASE SCROLL DOWN FOR OTHER POSTS! THIS WILL STAY AT TOP UNTIL SUNDAY JULY 25TH!*****************

NOTE THE BLOG HOP IS OVER! This is only staying up top to LINK your cards for Bella and/or Monique to win the cart!!!!!

Good Friday morning. Welcome to the CRICUT CARD FAIRY FIRST EVER BLOG HOP! Are you ready to start hopping to THIRTEEN blogs for some card inspiration and possibly some scrapping goodies along the way? I am so happy you are here to hop along with some amazing women.

Let me tell you about the CRICUT CARD FAIRIES first. They sprung from an idea that I had (Cards for Soldiers); I figure hey our Soldiers loved the cards we were sending, why not use our massive amounts of supplies and talent to help anyone that needs a pick me up or lift. So I asked on the cricut messageboard in April 2008 and two years and 620 plus missions later we are still going strong. We are a group of VOLUNTEERS who love our circuts, love making cards, and love spreading cheer through said cards. We have sent all over the United States, Canada, Australia, Middle East 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. I am biased but I think the Cricut Card Fairies are the greatest group of caring, sweet, and super talented people around.


So are you ready to HOP!?

Well I am Crystal, the commander of the Cricut Card Fairies. To share with you today I have a card for a fellow message board member who was just diagnosed with Stage 3 Cancer, our own Monique Griffith. We along with the followers of MyPinkStamper are flooding her with PINK cards. So this is what I made. I did not use the Cricut as we had to take DD to the hospital last night, she is alright but it was super stressful; we thought she had swallowed some real coins AAAACCKKK! So this is what I came up with before falling asleep! Kraft card stock, some faux white stitching, stamped images, pearls and pretty pink ribbon paper.


OH did I say there was BLOG CANDY involved? Yes I did!

I have a BNIP JUST BECAUSE CRICUT CARTRIDGE to give away to ONE lucky reader. BUT you will have to work a little for it. Here is what you have to do:
1. Hop to all THIRTEEN blogs and LEAVE COMMENTS (follow if you like them!) (I WILL CHECK THIS IF YOU WIN!)
2. Make a card for either MoniqueGriffith HERE OR Bella, Information for Bella can be found HERE
3. Link it up below.
4. I will pick a random winner who does all the above to win the BNIP Just Because Cards NEXT Saturday (July 24, 2010).

Now if you just want to comment on ALL the blogs I have a BNIP Hampton Art "We make a great pair" clear stamp set to give away. My friend Sandy sent me a set and I loved them so much I got another one to share!


Now it is time for you to hop onto the next blog, my amazing Co Commander LYNNE. If you get lost, you can always come back here and all the blogs are linked here below! Don't forget to come back and post your card and let me know you left love (comments) on all my Fairies blogs! HUGS!

Now here is the lineup for this whole weekend. We will END THE HOP on Sunday evening. Please pay attention to when each fairy will post their winners (if there is candy!)

  8. Looks Great Crystal! We were at the hospital with mom until 12:30 this morning, so I didn't have time to make a card special for this event, luckily I had one sitting on my table that I hadn't posted yet. Then of course my photo edit program wouldn't work...ugh, but I made it! :)
    Thanks for all of the hard work!

    I am making a card for Monique already, but I don't think I'll be able to post a picture of it in time to be considered for the blog candy. My hubby is out of town with the camera, hard drive and the know-how to get those darn picture out of the camera and onto the computer! ;-) lol
