Welcome to the "So Thank-Fall" Getting Cricky Blog Hop!!

We're so happy you could join us for this month's Getting Cricky Design Team Blog Hop!!  Each of us, along with our Special Guest - Letillia from Diva of 5, are so pleased to have you here with us!!  Along the way, you'll see NEW ideas for creating cards and projects with Kristal's stamps sets!!

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.

For my projects, I'm featuring the Fall-O-Ween stamp set and the brand new Owly-Hoo!
Fall-O-Ween benefits "Adopt a Classroom
For my first project, I cut the adorable owl from Kate's ABC's at 3". I used the Cuttlebug polka dots embossing folder for the background and a white gel pen for the doodling. The twine is from The Twinery and the tag is a Spellbinders die. I used the brand new Owly Hoo stamp set to mix and match the sentiment!!
For my second project, I cut a tree from Heritage as a mask and sprayed Glimmer Mist from the Sunset kit over the paper. I distressed the edges and attached buttons. The twine is from The Twinery. Fall Blessings is from the Fall-O-Ween stamp set!
