What an adorable card Heather! I actually have this stamp set of Kristal's - it is the only one I have sadly but I love it! I just love Kristal and the fact that she cares so much that she makes sure her stamps are made here in America and all benefit a different charity - well that just makes them even more special! I think you have every bit as much talent as the other DT members. I am a new follower and loving what I have seen so far :)

Getting Cricky Fall Blog Hop!!!

Welcome to the Getting Cricky Blog Hop!!

Hello Bloggie Friends and Guests! We're so happy you could join us for this month's Getting Cricky Design Team Blog Hop!!  We are so pleased to have you here with us!!  Along the way, you'll see NEW ideas for creating Fall & Halloween cards and MORE with Kristal's stamps sets!!

If you've hopped along from Kristal's Getting Cricky blog 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 THREE newest stamps sets are LARGER sets -- perfect for cards, layouts, and so much more...  For more details or to make one these sets YOURS, please click on the preview:

Fall-O-Ween benefits "Adopt a Classroom"

Winter Wishes benefits "Adopt a Classroom"

Scripture Sayings benefits "Good Samaritan Health Center"

I was thrilled and honored when Kristal asked me to be the Guest Designer for this hop... I was not sure I was worthy of being put up with her and the design team (they are all pretty darn amazing!) but thought wow, she asked me she must think I can handle it so I went for it! I hope you enjoy!!

For my card, I'm featuring the Fashionable Friends Stamp set! I absolutely love all of my stamp sets but this is one of my favorites! One of the many wonderful things about Kristal's stamps are they are so versatile you can use them for any occasion and they mix and match so well!!! For this particular stamp set the chairty is the Cancer Angels... if you have not heard of this charity please visit their website here....

This what the set looks like.... be sure to check it out at the website below!
"Fashionable Friends" benefits Cancer Angels

 On to my creation... This is my Halloween card! Isn't she cute? I thought she would be fabulous to send out to a couple friends whom I miss dearly, no one really expects a card for Halloween so it will make a nice surprise

 For this card I used a paper pack I picked up that was dedicated to Halloween (from Hobby Lobby)... it had seven different styles of paper but I liked how the little witch looked with these two styles. The witch and cauldron cut out came from the Cricut cartridge, Mini Monsters (I used 3 1/2 pt. font). The cartridge has so many fun designs but I just love her! I used some regular card stock to cut her out but then colored in her dress, hat and shoes with some black glitter glue and purple bling. The ribbon was given to me as a birthday present and the the button came from a 6 pack of buttons I purchased at Hobby Lobby. And of course what pulls the card all together is the "From one fashionista to another" stamp from Kristal's stampline! It was so fitting for this little fashion happy witch!
I used a little gold glitter glue to highlight the bubbles... who does not love a little glitter glue?

(sorry I think it is time for a new camera, this is fuzzy but the button says Happy Halloween and truly is cute)

So now that you have seen my project it is time to give away some
              After all who does not love Blog Candy right?!?!?

Kristal has given me the amazing opportunity to give one of you a STAMP SET! How fabulous is that? But why pick just one winner when we could have two? So the first winner will win the fabulous stamp set the second winner will get this little halloween package I picked up...

It includes; paper, ribbon, halloween chipboards, and some button bling... I used the same paper for my background and one of the button blings as well (no worries, you will get a new set and not my used one)! All you have to do to win is leave me a comment (I WOULD LOVE LOVE LOVE if you became a follower but I will not make that a requirement)... then on Monday morning I will pick two winners. Easy peasy! Can't wait to win a stamp? GO ORDER THEM! You can get them at enter promo code heather20 and you get 20% off! Such a sweet offer from Kristal! It is valid until Monday so GO ORDER :) You will have so much fun playing! I know I do!!

I really hope you enjoyed the hop and now off you go for more fun and excitment! Thanks for hoppin' by!

Now you can hop on over to your next stop: Kathy ......Happy Hopping Everyone!

Getting Cricky Sunday Challenge - Halloween

Hey Bloggie friends! I wanted to enter this weeks Getting Cricky Simply SundaybChallenge. The theme for this HALLOWEEN! I am kind of excited for Halloween this year. Normally it is an "okay" holiday but for some reason this year I am already in the Halloween mood! So I already started thinking about my son's school Halloween giveaway and I thought candy does not need to be given out by every child! This year his class is doing a hundred book challenge which starts in October as well. So I made bookmarks for each child.
I used the Locker Talk cricut cartridge to cut out the ribbon and the hat was cut out from the Mini Monsters Cricut cartridge. I used Kristal's Fashionable Friends stamp set to get the "Hat's off to you" (if you like that stamp you should hop over to Kristal's website and order it! ;)) The Halloween Stamp came from a little set (not sure where it is from) that was a present from a friend. I think they turned out pretty cute... I may just have to make more for the trick-or-treaters! Hope you enjoyed! Have a fabulous day all! P.S. if you are reading this before 9PM CST on 9/16 be sure to stop back tonight when I am the Guest Desinger on the Getting Cricky Blog Hop!

Faith Song For His Glory Blog Hop

Good morning my bloggie friends! I am so excited to have been asked to participate in the Faith Song for His Glory blog hop today! If you are here from Zenita's Blog you are in the right spot! If you started here and would like to start the hop from the begninng please see the line up at the bottom of this blog so you don't miss anything!

I am sorry the project is not more elaborate but I just got through a big move and I am still trying to find my "fun stuff". But I worked with what I had to bring you a little creative inspiration today! Please be sure to stop by the other girl's sites to check out what they have created!

The song I chose for this hop was from "The Dreamer" and it is called "He Opens a Window" if you have a chance and can listen to this song I think it is very meaningful. It strikes me as being a song of "today" as most of us are going through something in our life, whether it be financial, physical, emotional, family issues, health, whatever it may be a lot of us are going through something in our lives and we need to remember that when God closes a door on us, he opens a window for us to climb out of and live again! (sorry I tried to get it do it would appear in my blog but I guess I am not that computer savoy yet!)

For my creation I made a simple card to send a friend when they are down and needing a little light at the end of the tunnel.

I used scrap paper I had around the house that has a pearl tone and shimmers... the background paper is a paper I got from Hobby Lobby and is just a basic snowflake paper... The card and window cut out was made on my Cricut (LOVE MY CRICUT). I used the Locker Talk cartridge.

The stamping reads; "When one door closes Look for the open window". This stamp is from K. Andrew Designs. It is from the Sympathetic Sayings stamp set. If you have not checked out K. Andrew's stamps yet it is a must do!!! You can check them out here ( They are wonderful and made right here in the US. Plus, a portion of all money earned goes to a charity that Kristal has researched. Please be sure to check them out and learn  more about the charities you would be helping by purchasing these fabulous stamps!

Okay bloggie friends, that is all from me for today! Please be sure (if you haven't already) to visit the other girls and leave us all some love :) Enjoy the day and rejoice for God is truly amazing!!!

Here is the lineup for the Hop! ENJOY!
