Summertime Blog Hop

Welcome to the "Summertime" Getting Cricky Blog Hop!!

We're so happy you could join us for this month's Getting Cricky Design Team Blog Hop!!  We'd like to invite you to visit each of our DT Sisters' Blogs (it's just half the crew this month -- you'll see the other half next month!!) and our very special Guest Designer, Melissa from Needful Things!!

Throughout the hop we'll be showing what we love about....  SUMMERTIME!!  From parties and celebrations to campfires and s'mores,  we hope you'll enjoy each and every project along the way!!  Sooooo, let's get hopping...

If you've hopped along from Patty from Creative Divathen 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 the Splashtastic Summer Stamp set 

K Andrew Designs

For more details or to make this set YOURS, please click on the preview!!

  Now being an Aussie thongs (flip-flops) are our favourite footwear so this seemed very appropriate for a Summertime card!! 

The image is from Pack Your Bags, and I have added flowers to the thongs for some extra fun!!
The back ground paper is from Imaginisce - Ocean Motion collection, it has a lovely embossed and shinny feel to it. The ribbon is from the ribbon box available at Big W.  I used Kaisercraft pearls on this too.

The sentiment is from K Andrew Designs Splashtastic Summer stamp set 

We'd also like to share TWO BRAND NEW Stamp Art Sets that are now available for Pre-Order with an expected ship date of May 25th!! If you want to be one of the FIRST to own these SUPER-CUTE sets, you'll definitely want to order TODAY (clicking on the previews will take you directly to the order page!!)...
