"Getting Cricky With It" Surprise Blog Hop for Kristal

Welcome to the 'Getting Cricky With It' Surprise Blog Hop for Kristal Andrew!

Today the Design Team is bringing you some very special projects created for our wonderful and amazing leader Kristal! Our term is almost over and we wanted to show her just how much we appreciate ALL that she has done for us this term. The projects that we will be sharing with you will also be sent to Kristal. We encourage ALL of her fans to join in on the fun as well! Be sure to add your card/project to the link below and then be sure to mail it off to her!

If you've hopped along from the mult-talented Jana  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:

Those of you who have been following our Cabin Fever pre-hop, hop and post-hop know that we were asked to use just one cartridge through the whole two weeks.  Well, I guess I am just 'stuck' on Nate's ABC cricut cartridge.  These are all cuts from that cartridge.

I wanted to send Kristal something that tells her how I think of her.  Well, 'CRAFTY QUEEN" definitely 'fits'.  I used her awesome set of 'crafty friends' stamps and stamped away!  Not only that - I tried to incorporate as many 'elements' of scrapbooking and crafting that I could - (including the variety of colors).  At first I thought, "Wow, what a wild and crazy card"....then I thought, "Nope, perfect!"  Just take a look around your craft room - and I'm sure COLOR is what you will see! 

As the front of the card unfolds, more elements are revealed.

Stickles, popdots, bling, patterns and colors - all part of the crazy world of paper crafting!
Crafty Friends Stamp Set....PERFECT!

I love how Kristals stamps can be stamped right on the image.

Being a member of Kristal's design team, for me, was many things.  Inspirational - this group of ladies just amazes me.  All of us are at different crafting levels - so there is always inspiration and for me, room to improve.  Full of Blessings - Getting to know the whole 'Getting Cricky' team has truly blessed my life.  We share all our ups and downs, and I truly feel like I am not alone.  Being a Part of Something Bigger - Because Kristal gives back to so many different charities - I feel like I am part of something that really makes a difference.  Not only because of the charities she gives to - but the encouragement and love that I see all the team members give to others.  Design Team Call - Kristal is currently looking for DT members for her new design team.  Unfortunately our term is up - but I'm hoping she will keep me for at least one more term.  If you'd like to be part of her amazing Design Team, head over to Getting Cricky and follow the guidelines for your submission.

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit me - I'd love to hear from you.  Please leave your blog address so I can come visit you too!
