Getting Cricky Show us your Style Blog Hop

Welcome to the "Show Your Style" Getting Cricky Blog Hop!!
We're so happy you could join us for this month's Getting Cricky Design Team Blog Hop!!  We have an EXTRA SPECIAL hop for you this month -- For the past week we've been celebrating the BRAND NEW additions to our Getting Cricky team by showcasing some of our FAVORITE K Andrew Designs Stamp Art Sets...  And NOW, we'd like for you to get to know more about us and our very special Guest Designer (and former Getting Cricky Design Team Sister), Larelyn from Handmade from My Heart!!  Throughout the hop you'll be introduced to each of the Design Team Members who will each share a little about their styles and preferences for stamping!!  We hope you'll enjoy each and every project along the way, so let's get hopping... 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 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 stamp sets are perfect for cards, layouts, and so much more... For my project, I'm featuring the
set Winter Wishes.

 I made this card all out of my scraps and using my gypsy.  I am finally getting the hang of it and I am starting to love it.  The stamp shape is from Gypsy Wanderings and the Deer is from Cindy Loo.  The little tag is from Cindy Loo??  I can't  I embossed the light pink piece and then wrapped crochet cotton around it.  Then I dashed around the edges, added an eye for my dear and colored in her spots. I used chocolate chip ink to stamp it.  A little bling and it is done.

I have blog candy for you too!!  I am giving away 15 yards(there will be lots of pieces to add up to the 15) of ribbon to 2 lucky followers. Leave me a comment and make sure you follow either in blogger or by email.

 *** Remember -- As a special THANK YOU for joining us in welcoming the new team this week, you can use the promo code "letshavefun" at checkout for 20% OFF your ENTIRE stamp purchase!!  Woot-woot!!  Be sure to take advantage of this special before it's GONE!!  :)

Now you can hop on over to your next stop: Miranda ......

Hi! Thank you for a super fun blog hop!

So happy to be a follower of your site!

I love your card - it is darling. (I have the same cartridge - so, I look forward to making a card like yours. :) Also, I have a Gypsy that is still in the box. I am scared to open it, but you have inspired me to get it out and start learning how to use it.)

Thank you for your inspiration!
