Getting Cricky Holiday Wishes Blog Hop

Welcome to the "Holiday Wishes" Getting Cricky Blog Hop!!

We're so happy you could join us for this month's Getting Cricky Design Team Blog Hop!!  In addition to Kristal and the Senior Design Team, we look forward to introducing you to TEN member of our NEW Junior Design Team (be sure to visit Kristal's Blog to see ALL of our "new additions"!!)...  Each of us, along with our Special Guest - Ellen from "a little bit of this...", are so pleased to have you here with us!!  Throughout the hop, you'll see NEW ideas for creating cards and projects with Kristal's stamps sets!!

If you've hopped along from the super talented 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 wonderful WINTER WISHES stamp set.

K Andrew Designs

The card I created here is a5X6.5 card.  The blue snowflake mat paper is from K&Co.  It is embossed with a snowflake Cuttlebug embossing folder.  The ornaments are cut from the Cricut cartridge Holiday Cakes.  I used papers from DCWV and AC Specialty. 
 To jazz the ornaments up, I added some little holiday trinket charms  and a few colored gems to them.  I found these cute little trinkets are Hobby Lobby a few weeks ago, and just could not resist them.
And I finished the ornaments with three different ribbons from my stash of holiday ribbon.  

 The sentiment I chose for the card is a bright and happy " Merry Christmas "from Krystal's WINTER WISHES stamp set.  The most amazing thing about Kristal's stamps is that they can all be mixed and matched to create so many different sentiments for so many different projects.  They are just so versatile. 

I have some fabulous Blog Candy for you.  I will be giving away one of
 Kristal's WINTER WISHES stamp sets.  
All you have to do is be a follower and leave me a comment on this post.  
The winner will be named on Black Friday!! 

Now you can hop on over to your next stop: Christel ......
Have fun and come back soon!!
