Cricut Card Fairies TURN THREE! BLOG HOP!

Happy Friday! Today we are celebrating the Cricut Card Fairies!! We turned THREE YEARS OLD yesterday! YAY! What are Cricut Card Fairies you may be asking? Well I am here to tell you! We are a group of crafting volunteers who LOVE to send cards to those that need it. To date we have sent over 750 missions all over the globe. That is over 750 smiles and hugs via cards. Isn't that amazing?

I started the fairies back April 14, 2008. I honestly did not think it would go as long as it has but I knew how much cards made me smile so I figured it was a good way to spread some smiles and sunshine. WOW! Did the ladies on the cricut messageboard STUN me! I started with just working out of my personal email but quickly realized I needed a different one just for this, then the amazing Marine Mom wore Admin Becky down and we were blessed with our FORUM on the messageboard. It has been a wonderful adventure and I hope to continue it for as long as we are needed! If you are interested in becoming a fairy you can email me at cricutcardfairyarmy@gmail.com with your cricut messageboard name and the email for which you wish to receive missions.

Today I would like to share the layout I did for my Book Of Me that I am SLOWLY working on. There is a lot of journaling and I tried to show the relationship between the "commander" (me) and the AWESOME fairies that I love to pieces! What do you think?

Now I do have some blog candy to offer but I did not get a picture. Here is what you have to do to win leave me a comment here, hop along, leave love for all my wonderful fairies, then come back here and tell me YOUR FAVORITE PART OF THE HOP! Easy peasy right? I would love to have new followers but ONLY if ya like my creations. Please come back on Monday to find out who won! Happy Hopping!

  1. Crystal, I absolutely love it! I am so excited to be part of the CCFA! I love to make people smile and encourage others..

  2. Crystal, i can't thank you enough for all you do! I love being a Card Fairy, and know how much work it is to keep everything running smoothly. You're the best! Karelj

  3. Hey, Lady! I made it through once--missed a couple who weren't up yet, but I'll be stopping back each day. My favorite part? getting to know some of my fellow Card Fairies! Hugs! Karel

  4. Wow! Crystal, you're right. People do start blogging early in the morning LOL. Love your layout - you are so special! My links didn't seem to be working so I fixed them. Thanks for giving us a reason to celebrate!

  5. Love the layout - I need to work on my book as well.

    Thanks and sorry for getting my post time mixed up

  6. went through the listing... have a great day!

  7. Great LO Crystal, I love the way you paired the camo print and the polka dots! This is a sweet lil hop and I hope since we are leaving it up for the weekend lots more potential fairies see it!

  8. Great job on your LO Crystal, love that camo paper, it is perfect! I don't know if you knew what a blessing you would be to so many people when you started the CCFA, but I hope you know now! Thanks for all you do, I am so happy to be a small part of it! [[HUGS]]

  9. What a fun hop, Crystal!! And Happy 3rd Birthday to CCF!!


  10. Wow! What a fun trip! Everyone's work is so beautiful! My favorite part was the pride y'all take in your work and for such a great cause! I know each and everyone who receives a card from y'all is just tickled pink!

  11. Hi Crystal, I love it and wish I was part of it. One more month until my things arrive from Italy. Can't wait to be back among you and working with the fairies again. Came on the right day to visit everyone too, it seems! :0)

  12. WOW!! Love it!! you do such great work!!!


  13. I'm a new follower. Great job making to 3. love your work.

  14. HI again Crystal! We have such a great group of crafters! And to think that this is only a sampling of our Fairies!!! I love seeing everyone's takes on projects, and even ways that they incorporate the cuts from Carts into cards. I still have trouble with that so it was nice to see! But I have to agree with those above. The best part....getting to know and see some of the creations from some fellow faries.
    Keep up the excellent work Crystal! As long as CCFA is around (and I hope it's for a looooooong time) I will be right there helping with missions! And as always....thanks for all that you do!

  15. Crystal, I left a message at the beginning, but I just finished the hop for the first day. Very nicely done cards by all of the fairies. I loved Rachel's use of the owl punch to make that fantastic rose. I am definitely going to try that. thanks for the hop. Tami

  21. Crystal, Just finished the blog hop. You have some very talented ladies in your army. My favorite part was that you did a layout instead of a card. You know I am a scrapper at heart and love the layouts.
