WELCOME TO THE "IN LIKE A LION....OUT LIKE A LAMB" GETTING CRICKY BLOG HOP!!!!We're so happy you could join us for this month's Getting Cricky Design Team Blog Hop!! If you've hopped along from my sweet and talented friend JESSIE 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:

For my project, I'm featuring the WINTER WISHES For more details or to make this set YOURS, please click on the preview:
On to my project:
My card is 5X5 square card. My light blue card stock is Paper Studio from Hobby Lobby. My background paper (spring) is DCWV from the The Blossoms and Butterflies Stack and is cut at 4 1/2 X 4 1/2. My cute little lion was cut at 4 inches from the Everyday Paper Dolls cart. I cut it twice once in the lighter yellow orange card stock and once in the darker yellow orange card stock. I cut his mane (not sure that is the proper word) off the darker colored lion and pop dotted it onto the lighter colored lion using SU deminsionals. I hid the face freatures using my gypsy and stamped a Peachy Keen face from the Critter Faces Stamp set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I added some Glossy Accents to it's nose. I chalked around the edges with brown chalk. My grass was cut at 2 inches from the Plantin SchoolBook cartridge. I stamped my sentiment from the "Winter Wishes" set. I stamped it on a piece of purple card stock using the same Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I just cut the ends to resemble a banner and used a pencil to shape it. I used Color Bok card stock for the lion, grass and banner.
What blog hop would be complete without BLOG CANDY! I'll have some surprise blog candy for one lucky person. All you have to do is leave me a comment below telling me why you do/don't like spring.
