Its a Star

Welcome to the Getting Cricky Blog Hop 

This month the theme is "Celebrate This" It can be any celebration Wedding, Anniversary, Birthday, Holiday so, if you've hopped along from Shawn at Crafty Chics 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: K Andrew Designs 

I Have made a birthday card with a difference as it is birthday season now for my daughter and her friends. So because kids love interactive cards I have made this STAR card 

I did not come up with this card and I got the directions from Night Owl Designs 
This is a super fun interactive card to make but it does take some time to make. 
The stamp sets I have used was Of Mice and Lil Men for the outside panels

and Sweet July for the inside panel

The Star is from the Cricut Cartridge Simply Charmed and is on an Action Wobble so the star moves and has a fun element to it when it opens
The paper is from the My Minds Eye spots and dots paper pack and the stripes is My Memories paper

Like your interactive card. Reminds me of a paper folding creation of my younger days that you would put words on and manipulate with opening & closing and when you stopped you opened the flap to reveal what to read.
