Surprise Blog Hop for Kristal! And a big Thanks!

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 Patti from Pattie Lynn Creations ( ... sorry my links are not working for some reason) 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:

I am so excited and so blessed to be on the Getting Cricky Design Team this fall. It has been the most amazing experience and I love the Design Team girls. They become like your second family. I am soooo Thankful to Kristal for allowing me to be a part of such an amazing team! So as my way of saying thank you I created Kristal a little owl... if you know Kristal you know she LOVES owls. When I send it off I will also be sending her a Starbucks card because we all know she loves her some Starbucks! :)
Can you believe I made this out of a toilet paper roll? I have to admit I saw a picture of something like this on Pinterest and just fell in love with it. I used a solid green paper to cover the roll and then I used Accent Essentials to create the feathers and the eyes. The eyes were 1 1/4 inch for the white and 1/4 inch for the black dots. I cut the arms with a heart cut at 2 inches and all the feathers are hearts as well that were cut at 3/4 inches. I thought he turned out pretty care cute (or I guess she with all the pinks and purples) 

I took a little piece of paper and added "I could just squeeze you" from the Food for Thought stamp set!

Sorry it is blurry. Did not look like this on my camera!

Here is the stamp set I used.
Be sure to check out K. Andrew Design and order a set for yourself today!
