Getting Cricky Favorite Things Hop

Welcome to the Getting Cricky "Favorite Things" Blog Hop   
Each of us on the Design Team, along with some very special guests and friends, are so pleased to have you here with us!!  We have a special surprise for you at the end of the hop, so be sure to visit each blog along the way...  You'll end up at Kristal's blog where you'll get to JOIN the FUN!!  So let's get HOPPING to show you some of our "Favorite Things" about Kristal's stamps!!
If you've hopped along from Larelyn 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 Lisa's blog (you'll want to catch up on all the FUN!!)...

This month we were going to use our favorite set. It was soo hard to choose so I picked the first set I ever got which is Winter Wishes. I thought that Santa would be wanting it to snow :) That is why I picked that sentiment.
I used all scraps for my card except the base. I believe all the patterned paper was from Little Yellow Bicycle. The image is a Stampin Up one, but I don't know the set. I colored it with my Prismacolor pencils and blended.  It was based off a sketch from Card Positioning Systems.

I will have some Candy but, I am slightly behind and still need to pick last month's winner.  Both prizes will be a grab bag of goodies.
 It is just nuts around my house, but I will pick winners from both hops and announce them Wednesday.
You must leave a comment on this post :)

Didja know?
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, 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:
