"Getting Cricky With It" Surprise Blog Hop

Welcome the “Getting Cricky With It” Surprise Blog Hop for Kristal!!!

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 Jennie 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 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:

This was my second time making a criss cross card (the first one I never posted, it was just a sample to see how to make it) I found a video on YouTube on how to make them. Because it was so long ago I don't have the link for it but if you search criss cross cards you should find some. For the flower I came across it on The Paper Variety, mine is alittle different as I used more circles and I put mine on the nestability, if you click on the link you will see how to make it.

I would like to take this time to thank everyone on the Design team for such a great term, you are all so talented and really amazing women. Kristal thank you for putting together such a great team of ladies and for your amazing stamps. I have been blessed to be able to work with everyone. So Thank You!!
