Getting Cricky With It Blog Hop!!

Welcome the “Getting Cricky With It” Surprise 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 RhoLynda  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:

Now here is what I have made for Kristal.  
The base of my card and bird cage were made with the SOPHIE cartridge. I also cut additional flowers from the cartridge to layer at the bottom of the card.  The center of the flowers are brads from the Oriental Trading Co.  
The dress form is cut from the FRENCH MANOR cartridge.  
I tied a pretty oink crinkle ribbon bow on the dress form and added a Prima gem to the center of the bow.  
The brilliant  sentiment I added to the card is from the  K ANDREW AMAZING YOU stamp set.
