It's our Birthday!

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 became a fairy in the very beginning of the group. I started with the very first mission, and here I am so many missions later, and I wouldn't change it for the world! Crystal, had contacted me and asked if I thought that would people would be interested in having a group. I told her absolutely! Sign me up! Now I don't always get to do every mission, but I do as many as I can. Card making is a stress reliever for me. I have so many cards that I have made that I will ever be abe to use myself. So I thought what better way to share the cards, while giving someone a smile (well hopefully)in the process. If you are interested in becoming a fairy you can email Crystal at cricutcardfairyarmy@gmail.com with your cricut messageboard name and the email for which you wish to receive missions.
If you just happened along my blog you may want to go back to the beginning with Crystal at http://crystalscraftycreations.blogspot.com/.
If you arrived here from Brenda's blog http://www.beejaysstudio.blogspot.com/
you are in the right place! And please remember when you are finished here to continue with the FABULOUS Karel at http://www.kareljcreations.com/.

And now onto my project!
For the blog hop we are celebrating our birthday, and so I created a birthday card. It features the flower from “Because I Care” and the sentiment from the (now retired) “Watercolor Trio”. By the way, I love this image, and love the fact that you don't have to color it in to achieve a great look! The image is stamped in Cherry Cobbler on Very Vanilla cardstock. I then cut it out using the Top Note die from Stampin’ Up. I layered that piece on a piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock which I ran through my BigShot using the Square Lattice embossing folder. That was added to my Very Vanilla cardstock base. I added the finishing touches of the oval punch as well as the Oval Scallop punch and a bit of ¼” Basic Black Grosgrain ribbon. What a cheery way to celebrate someone’s birthday!!
