I became a cricut card fairy

After seeing the great things this group has done, especially with Josh's little girl, I decided I needed to join. Essentially what you do is sign up, you receive "Missions" every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. These missions tell you who has requested cards and what the reason along with the address to send them to. As a fairy you create the cards and send them to the person. It's just kind of a reminder that there are still selfless people out there in this big ol' world. I got my 1st 3 missions yesterday, 2 thinking of you cards and a sympathy. I created 2 of the 3 last night. (To read more or become a fairy click here)

The 1st card I found HERE and thought it was pretty cool. I had to give it a whirl. It's made from an envelope. I used the new Basic Grey Lime Rickey paper pack. Also used some bling and some Prima's on the outside. On the inside was just a stamped "Just saying Hi" image.

The sympathy card I made was from scraps. The paper is Bo Bunny's Splendor line. I used a prima and a few leaf cuts from the cricut (Home Accents cart) a little bling and whala! The sentiment is computer generated.

Choco-holics swap cards

I realized that these were due in 2 weeks and AGGGG, I hadn't started them, nor did I have any ideas! I needed to do 13 of each of them so I thought I better get going. Here's what I came up with, simple and sweet.

I just used a paper pack from my stash (the cover was missing so I don't know who it's by), Stickel's and Prima's some ribbon from my stash and some paper clips. I'm trying to use things from my scrap stash and my paper packs. It seams those things never get used so that's my goal is to use those more or STOP buying/saving them!

Wedding Card

My cousins wedding colors were black white and a bright pink so I made this card for her. All paper and ribbon was from my stash.

Wedding gift

I have been doing recipe swaps for the last year in preparation for my cousins wedding gift. I made a recipe box and filled it with 4X6 recipe cards. The paper is by Flair, ribbon was on sale at Hobby Lobby, and it was Deco Art's Dazzling Metallic paint in Rich Espresso. I also found the box at Hobby Lobby.

My flowerpot card

I made this card for my cousin's bridal shower. It was so easy and SO fun to make! I used bling brads and Primas from my stash for the flowers.

Another Saggy Lady card

My aunt isn't feel well so to bring a smile to her face, I made her a saggy lady. I used some band-aid paper from my scrap box and some red cardstock also from my scrap box. The cupcake is from Me & My Big Ideas, of course I used stickles to make her sparkle. The sentiment on the inside is a stamp from Michael's and it reads "Maybe a cupcake will help?" I thought it all fit well. Thanks for looking.
