U R SO SWEET!!! - Getting Cricky Monthly Blog Hop

Welcome to the "U R SO SWEET" 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 -- All week long, the Design Team has been featuring many of Kristal's stamp sets in anticipation of the hop...  If you've missed out on any of the week, be sure to check out our previous posts for MORE THAN 100 CREATIVE IDEAS and PROJECTS using Kristal's stamps as well as giveaways, promotions, tips, and tutorials!! 

If you've hopped along from Amanda 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 Winged Things set. This set is so much fun to use! I'm so glad I chose it as my focus set for the week, because I really got to play with the many possibilities it offers to enhance my projects!

Now for my project!!!

Isn't this little bee just too cute!!! She is cut from the Create a Critter cartridge. I added a little bow to her antenna to give her a little bit of charm. :)
The base of my card is cut from the Pack Your Bags cartridge and welded together using my Gypsy.  And of course my sentiment is from the awesome Winged Things set!

This is the inside of the card. I just love that I was able to put this phrase together. I just love how versatile the K. Andrew Designs stamps are! That makes them that much more fun to play with! :)

Don't forget to stop HERE to pick up your very OWN set of K. Andrew Designs stamps. Remember when you buy $25 worth of stamps, you get the Mini Heart Bonus Set for FREE!! How awesome is that! Even better when you use the code: rholyndafreeship  You get FREE shipping on your order too! This is too good of a deal to pass up, so what are you waiting for!!!
