Getting Cricky Blog Hop

Welcome to the Getting Cricky Ustream Event and Blog Hop where we are showcasing three BRAND NEW sets of K Andrew Design's Stamp Art Sentiment Stamps!

All of the FUN will start RIGHT HERE at the Getting Cricky Ustream Channel at 9pm EST (6pm PST)...  So please click on the link and Join the Getting Cricky Crowd (if you are joining us later, we invite you to watch the recorded version of the Ustream so that you don't miss out on ANY of the EXCITEMENT!)!! 

If you're joining us after the Ustream, thank you!!  Each of us on the Design Team, along with our Special Guest - Amanda from Amanda's Crafts and More, are so pleased to have you here with us!!  
What an exciting night of NEW RELEASES we've had!!  So let's get HOPPING so we can each show you what we've created using one (or more) of Kristal's NEW stamp sets!! If you've hopped along from Janis 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, 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:
