Cricut Card Fairy Blog Hop

Welcome to the Cricut Card Fairy Blog Hop. This month we are practicing being thankful for all the blessings in our lives. What are you thankful for? Do you stop daily and thank those around you for blessing you? Do you appreciate the small things in life? I sure hope so! With that in mind my wonderful fairies have put together some awesome THANKSGIVING/THANKFUL themed crafty items. Along the way there will be opportunities for inspiration, and blog candy. So make sure you hop all the way through, leave comments on every blog, and then a comment here on my blog when finished. I will be giving away a BNIP Hello Kitty Greetings cart to a person that comments on ALL the blogs and here too! Happy hopping!

I have been having issues trying to post this so I hope it goes through this time.

I have 2 projects I would like to share the first is a simple tag cut on my cricut and embossed with the cuttlebug.  The digi is Grace from Simply Betty Stamps, colored with sharpie markers.

My next project is my first paperbag album.  I am most thankful for my family so this is a family album with plenty of space for each member to add what they are thankful for this year. 

Here is the cover.  The flower was made with the cuttlebug and my Dahlia nestabilities the bronze paper was embossed with my swiss dots as was the family title which is cut from the Heritage cart.

Page 1 the little house in the corner was made when I cut out a page full of arrows for my daughters class the space left over in between each arrow looked like a house and I hate to waste anything.:)
The tag is pg 1 pocket

pg 2
The lg paper bag pocket tag.

There are more pages but there is a lot more hopping to do so I will share more on my blog later.

Right now you need to hop on over to for more fun.

Make sure to leave comments along the way for chances to win some great candy.    My candy is a surprise stamp set!
