Getting Cricky Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Getting Cricky Blog hop where we are showcasing the first 6 sets in K Andrew's brand new line of sentiment stamps! If you came from Jess Marin's blog then you are in the right place! Welcome! If you are just joining me tonight, make sure to start with K Andrew's blog. 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 these charities: Cancer Angels, Storefront Shelter for Homeless Children, Intrepid & Fallen Heroes, Doorways Shelter for Women & Children (Domestic Violence), 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. I want to show you the Fashionable Friends Stamp Set.
This is the charity description.
Cancer Angels is a non-profit organization that helps aid Level 4 cancer patients of ALL kinds. Many of these patients have such severe cancer and chemo that working or holding down a job is near impossible. Cancer angels gives them hope and monetary help while undergoing treatment in this stage. Imagine finding out you have cancer, and losing your job, home, and everything else because you can't work. Sometimes you just need an angel...and this is my way of becoming a silent angel (all of us together) to those who so desperately need some good news in the midst of such a storm.




Shopping is my therapy!  and From one ol' bag to another!  Fashionable Friends.   
I made this bag out of a lunch paper bag and cut it with my Cricut (it cut every nice) then I used an old folder and glued the paper bag to it.  De-stressed it and added my flower and ribbon to it.  

Blog Candy
I will be giving away this wonderful set of stamps Fashionable Friends.  I enjoyed using these stamps this week and I know you will enjoy them also.  Good Luck!
