groundhog: noun

stocky coarse-furred burrowing rodent with a short bushy tail found throughout the northern hemisphere; hibernates in winter
Happy Groundhog day everyone which means it's time to celebrate one of my all time favorite movies! Did you guess it, did ya, did ya? lol It's Groundhog Day with Bill Murray and while you watch the clip remember.... "watch out for that first step, it's a doozy"....



I am also combining a few challenges together as I will no be doing my usual amount of posting this week end, for 2 reasons! 1. My friend Jamie ( the one who I am hoping will forgive me, go back a post or 2 ) is coming up this week end and we are going to have fun, fun , fun. Going to the Biltmore Estate, down to Greenville, SC to walk the Falls Park bridge, going to see the One For the Money movie and we are having a Commercial Bowl party...of course I'll catch you all up on pictures and adventures next week ;)

and 2. Some of you have read about my Cricut Fairy Cards and how we send cards out to anyone in need. Well Friday we will be having a Cricut Fairy blog hop and you can find out how to become a card fairy too :) Plus you can hop around and visit some of the wonderful women who take time to send cards out to anyone in need of a smile, encouragement a blessing....anything! So, please stop back on friday for some fun, plus I will be having my first give away!

My card that I made is for a young girl who is 10 years old and has been diagnosed with brain cancer. A friend has requested cute, bright, blingy, girly cards to cheer her up so I made her an easel card so she can see everyday how awesome she is. I really hope that she likes it and my thoughts and prayers go out to her and her family.
I tried to add plenty of rhinestones and stickles as I could, so that hopefully it will sparkle in her eyes.
And I made the envelope to match the card, just trying to make it extra- special for her. :)

Doodlecharm cartridge
stickles
American Crafts felt flowers
me and My Big idea rhinestones
sara Bond epoxy sticker letters
beads, paper- from stash

I would love for each and everyone of you to return on Friday, not only to participate in the blog but to hopefully join our group of Cricut Card Fairies.
