"Getting Cricky With It"- Surprise Blog Hop

Welcome to the “Getting Cricky With It” Surprise Appreciation 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 the blog of the AMAZING Kristal 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:

For my project I have made a card and a gift bucket full of wonderful things to help Kristal to relax and rest. She does SO much for everyone that I thought this special gift would be just fitting for her! :)

This is the card that I made. The patterned papers and images are all cut from the Enjoy the Seasons cartridge for the Imagine. The sentiment was created by combining the Coffee & Tea for You & Me set and the Winter Wishes set.

This is the inside of the card. The sentiment is from the Scripture Sayings set and the images are from the Winged Things and Crafty Friends sets.

This is the bucket of relaxation that I put together for Kristal. Inside are some nail files, a manicure set, some eye masks including a gel one, a candle & holder, bath confetti, and a cd of relaxing music!

This is the top of the bucket with a paper flower that I picked up at Michael's. I hot glued it to the lid for some added fun!

Here is the total package! I really hope that Kristal takes some time to get some much needed R & R! She is SO very deserving of it!!!

Thanks so much for taking time to join us for this very special hop! Don't forget that if you want to join in the fun of this hop, you can create something just for Kristal and send it off to her. Be sure to link up your project below!
