Getting Cricky Promotional Week - Day 1 and Giveaway!!


Hi everyone and happy Sunday!! I hope you are having a great weekend!! Welcome to Getting Cricky Promotional Week!! Several members of the Getting Cricky Design Team will be featuring a new project every day this week leading up to our monthly blog hop on Friday, January 20. The catch (there's always a catch, isn't there?!)...actually, there are two!! The theme of our Blog Hop is "U R SO SWEET" to celebrate Valentines Day and the release of Kristal's fabulous new Valentine stamps (click HERE to see the stamps or to order your own sets!! They ship on January 22nd!!) So all of our projects will feature a Valentines Day/love theme!! The second catch, and this is the biggie - we will each be using one stamp set all week for our projects, demonstrating just how versatile each of Kristal's stamp sets are to use!!

For my stamp set, I chose Owly Hoo!! I will be showcasing this set all week and I have to warn you...since I received the Hoot N Holler Cricut cartridge for Christmas, most (but not all!) of my projects will feature a wise old owl :)
For this card, I cut the cute owl from Hoot N Holler and assembled the layers with foam tape for dimension. You can't tell in the picture, but she has black gem eyes and a crystal belly button!! I attached her with a homemade wobble so she shimmies :) The background paper is from the DCWV Citrus stack. The bottom border is a Fiskars punch. I embossed the strip of paper behind the sentiment with a Cuttlebug embossing folder. The tag is a Spellbinders die. "Owl-ways on my mind" is of course from the Owly Hoo stamp set:
There are so many fun words on here...tons of mix and match possibilities!! To purchase your own set, or to see the entire line of K Andrew Design Stamps, including the new Valentine stamps, click HERE!

How would you like to win this stamp set??!!
I will be giving away a set of Owly Hoo stamps to one lucky follower! There are several ways to enter so you will have lots of chances to win!! The only requirements to be eligible are:
  1. Be a follower

Cute card! Don't you just love the Hoot n Holler cart? I found mine at Walmart on clearance for $15..I know, total steal! I just used that same owl cut on a rosette wreath I made too, she reminds me of my daughter. Holly :-)

Aww Lisa! What a treat to have a few projects from you now that I'm finally online! :o) I've missed you and your creativity! (I know it's only been since Friday, but still! Hehe.) This card is SO cheerful! Just like lovey-dovey love. :o) I love the bright colors and adore the gemstone eyes and sparkly belly button. Such fantastic details. I love the embossed trim beneath the fabulous sentiment buckle. This sweet owl is sure to deliver a cheerful dose of sunshiny love. Beautiful work, my sweet friend!

Hugs and blessings!

I think I got this all right but I'm new at this so bear with me. I did everything but buy stamps. It showed no photo available at most of them and the others are so small my elderly eyes couldn't see what they were. I did like the It's Valentines but I have a set very much like it as far as what I could see. I need to stop buying crafty stuff and go get new glasses. LOL Just FYI, my birthday is the 25th so it sure would make a good BD present. I hope I get some BD luck. LOL I'm Gayla and my addy is moonrose777@yahoo.com
