Getting Cricky "Snow Much Fun" Blog Hop

Welcome to the "Snow Much Fun" 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 the rest 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 - Patty from "Creative Diva", 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 JoAnn's blog then you are in the right place!! If you are just joining me from your dashboard,  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 in the USA, which is very important to Kristal. This ensures all product materials are safe and that jobs are being provided and maintained 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...

November 18th was the first snow fall this year where I live and my daughter was so excited. There was only about 1/2 inch of snow but my daughter wanted to go outside and make snow angels!! I decided to take pictures and when I saw the theme for this months hop I knew it would be perfect for a layout. We haven't had much snow since, which is fine with me. I am not much for cold weather, it seems I am sick for most of the winter.

I hope this shows you that you can use Stamps on layouts and not just cards. I have a few more layouts that I will be making using K Andrew Stamps in the next few days.

Now you can hop on over to your next stop:
