"U R SO SWEET" Getting Cricky 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 Deb  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 three of Krystal's stamp sets.


And one of Krystal's newest stamp sets...

Its Valentines

I Heart You

Here is a Valentines card I made for my sweet niece.  She is a freshman in high school this year and truly is SO SWEET.  She also loves those Starbucks lattes.  So I thought this would be perfect for her.
The paper for my card is from K & Company and DCWV.  The three coffee drinks are all cuts from the Cricut Lite cartridge, LOVE YOU A LATTE.  I added a little white doillie that I inked up with Tim Holtz antique linen.  I used the same ink pad on all of the Cricut cuts as well.  The little hearts are EK Success dimensional stickers.  And a pretty pink ribbon and bow was added to "dress it up".   

The sentiment is from the COFFEE AND TEA FOR YOU AND ME stamp set.  
And this is the inside of the card.
The Happy Valentines is from the new stamp set, ITS VALENTINES.  And the little latte is from the COFFEE AND TEA TAG ALONGS.  

I am excited to tell you that with a $25.00 order of stamps, you will get this adorable Mini Heart Bonus Set for FREE!!!
