Getting Cricky "In Like a Lion Out Like a Lamb" Blog Hop

Welcome to the "In Like a Lion Out Like a Lamb" Getting Cricky Blog Hop!!

Wow Getting Cricky Fans it is already the third weekend in March! Where does the time go?
We're so happy you could join us for this month's Getting Cricky Design Team Blog Hop!!  This month we have special Blog Hop ideas for that old saying "In Like a Lion, Out Like a Lamb".
If you've hopped along from the stellar Lisa 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!!)...

By now you all know how much the Design Team loves and adores K. Andrew Design Stamps! I just wanted to remind you 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: WARNING!!! WARNING!!! WARNING!!! Kristal Andrew stamps can be highly addictive and habit forming!  The good news is they are GREAT for your health and bring your stress level down several notches!!! SO GO ORDER SOME!!! YOUR HEALTH WILL THANK YOU!! ;)  Haahaa... check out Kristal's newest stamps!! And may I just say before you look that I am in love with all three sets and have them on order and SOOOO can not wait until they arrive in my mailbox so I can play (I have three projects already set they are just awaiting the stamps!)


This is "All about animals". How fun are the sayings? You know you could use this on some fun projects that would make anyone smile! And the great news... THIS SET IS SHIPPING NOW! So hurry up and order!!

 This is "In the Family" perfect for family cards, showers anniversaries or you know just a card about how wonderful life is! :) This stamp set is shipping now! So be sure to get yours!!

And introducing the news stamp set to the family...
"Of Mice & Lil Men" Now if you are a Disney lover your mouth is probably drooling at this point! I know mine was when I saw it! I could not wait to order!!!!! This set is now on Preorder and will ship around the 5th of April! I AM TELLING YOU NOW!!! Pre-Order this set because it will be going fast!!!

So what do you think? Pretty fabulous sets huh? Yeah I think so too! Well hopefully you waited to see my project for this hop before heading off and ordering!

Being from the Midwest I am truly hoping the statement "In like a lion out like a lamb" is so not true because if you reverse it and it is "In like a lamb out like a lion" we could be in for the biggest snow storm I have ever seen! We have been breaking crazy heat records. Today's high here in Wisconsin was 79 degrees (well at least here where I am at it was)! That is crazy for mid March!!! So I am hoping this is still considered "In Like a Lion" because it is HOT HOT HOT!  And I am enjoy this "Sun-sational" weather!
Which brings me to my card....

Isn't the lion cute? I cut him from the Create a Critter Cricut Cartridge at 3 1/4 inches. The mane is made out of ribbon I got from Walmart and cut at different sizes. The Sun is also cute from the create a critter cartrdige at 2 inches, the background paper is from scraps I had and the stamp is from of course K. Andrew Designs. It is called Splashtastic Summer. It is loads of fun and with Summer right around the corner it is a great set to own! Here is what you would see on this set....

Okay have I gone on long enough for you?!?! I am sure I have, so now it is time to send you off to the next Design Team Sister the amazing Amanda!

Enjoy the Hop and your weekend y'all! And if you get lost along the way here is a little help from your friend! Until Next Time!
