Getting Cricky Blog Hop

Welcome to the "Holiday Wishes" Getting Cricky Blog Hop!!
We're so happy you could join us for this month's Getting Cricky Design Team Blog Hop!!  In addition to Kristal and the Senior Design Team, we look forward to introducing you to TEN member of our NEW Junior Design Team (be sure to visit Kristal's Blog to see ALL of our "new additions"!!)...  Each of us, along with our Special Guest - Ellen from "a little bit of this...", are so pleased to have you here with us!!  Throughout the hop, you'll see NEW ideas for creating cards and projects with Kristal's stamps sets!!

If you've hopped along from the very talented Miranda, then you are in the right place!! If you are just joining me from your dashboard, or reading this via email, please be sure to CLICK HERE to start at the beginning with Kristal's blog (you'll want to catch up on all the FUN!!)...

Each of Kristal's stamp sets benefit charity. At least $1 per stamp set goes to benefit the charity noted on the stamp set package. Kristal is donating to the following charities: Cancer Angels, Storefront Shelter for Homeless Children, Intrepid & Fallen Heroes, E. Glaser Pediatric AIDS  Foundation, Doorways Shelter for Women & Children (Domestic Violence), Wayside House for Women, Camp Good Days & Special Times, Adopt a Classroom, and Autism Research Institute. Kristal will donate $1 for every stamp set sold, retail or wholesale to the charity noted; and over time believes this will add up to some wonderful miracles for these special people. So you can feel good that each time you purchase a K Andrew Designs art stamp set, someone around the country is receiving some good help!

K Andrew's stamps are all made and assembled here in the USA, which is very important to Kristal. This ensures all product materials are safe and that jobs are being provided and maintained here in America.  You can learn even more about Kristal's stamps (and pick some up for yourself) by visiting her online store: K Andrew Designs:

Kristal's stamp sets are perfect for cards, layouts, and so much more...

For my project, I'm featuring the Winged Things Stamp Set.

 For more details or to make this set YOURS, please click on the stamp set above!

For my first project, I used the saying, "Let your love take flight".  The wonderful thing about Kristal's stamps is the ability to make sooooooooo many different sentiments with them.  I used the bird cut from the Winter Frolic cartridge, snowflake paper from paperwishes, cuddlebug snowflake embossing folder which I inked for accent.  I'm so tickled with the way this all came out.

My second card is from the same stamp set!!!!!   I simply masked the second 'e' on the word "bee" and used "Sweet as can be" as my sentiment!   Did I say how much I love these stamps????   A little hint - every time I use  a different saying combination, I stamp it on the card that comes with that stamp set.  That way I always know what I've used.  I used the Christmas Cheer Cricut Cartridge for the cuts and the same papers as the previous card.  I used stickles around the edges of the two candy canes. 

Now you can hop on over to your next stop: Sherry 

Special - this weekend and this weekend only (through Sunday) Cricky Fans will get 20% off their entire purchase of K Andrews Design Stamps when they use code Cricky20.  Wow!!!  Thanks Kristal!
