Hello and welcome to the very first Blog Hop for Cricut Card Fairy Army! You should have arrived here from Nicole's blog. If not you may want to go all the way back to the beginning and start at Crystal's Blog.
This is my card that I created using the new Hostess stamp set "Because I Care" from Stampin' Up. The background is stamped with the "en Francois" Background stamp. I used Stampin' Up's Perfect Plum, Old Olive and Whisper White cardstock. The image is stamped with Perfect Plum and Old Olive. It also features the Oval punch as well as the Scalloped Oval Punch. I finished it all up with Old Olive 1/4" Grosgrain ribbon and added a little dimension to the sentiment with Dimensionals. Sorry the picture is so far away, for some reason my Photo Editing program isn't cooperating tonight. I'll try to get a better picture tomorrow.

I am a proud member of a great group of crafters on my Favorite Message Board. Together we receive Mission requests for people through their friends and loved ones. In turn the commander Crystal and the CoCommander Lynne send out the missions to the Army, and we create cards and send them out. Sometimes they are for Birthdays, or Get Well, and sadly sometimes we have requests for Sympathy. What started out in April 2008, as a small group, is now many members strong, and as of today, July 21, 2010, we are at 621 Missions!!!! This group of crafters is amazing! I have personally requested a handful of missions, and they have come through every time.
Now one the members of our Army has sadly become a mission. Monique has been Diagnosed with Stage 3 Breast cancer. ThePinkStamper has started a Card Campaign for Monique here. We are also doing a card campaign for Bella, an 8 year old little girl who came down with a near fatal infection. Her story is here.
In just a couple of days we will be starting our very first Cricut Card Fairy Army Blog Hop. Check back with us on Friday July 16th for a chance to win lots of great Blog Candy. The Hop will begin with Crystal, http://crystalscraftycreations.blogspot.com/ . Don't forget to check back here for some Blog Candy!!!

After I made the swaps for my PhillyInkers meeting, I had some left over pieces. so I decided to use them to make a slightly different card. I still used the "Priceless" set from Stampin' Up. This time I used the Rock and Roll technique on the heart. I also changed the sentiment a little, and switched the background from Pretty In Pink to Whisper White. I still used the Eyelet border punch. The sentiment is also from the "Heard From The Heart" set from Stampin' Up. I finished it all up with the 1/4" Real Red grosgrain ribbon.
The second picture is a close up of what the Rock and Roll technique looks like.
