Welcome to the "Holiday Wishes" Getting Cricky 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 members 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 Patti 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 start 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 Winter Wishes Stamp Set:

Button Buddy
This was a fun tag to make and super easy. I punched a 3 inch circle, 1 3/4 inch circle, 1/4 inch circles for eyes, nose and buttons and 1/8th inch circles for mouth, 1 round tab punch and 1 snowflake punch.
I inked the 2 largest circles with Tim Holtz Tumbled Glass and Milled Lavender distress ink. I then used K. Andrew's Winter Wishes for my sentiment, with Jennie Bowlin Chili Powder ink and some ribbon from my stash. Then I added a snowflake button and viola, it was done. See how easy!

Thanks for visiting me today and happy crafting.
God Bless
