Operation Owl Blog Hop & Prizes

Today the Getting Cricky design team and some special guests are coming to you for a special blog hop "thanking" Kristal for all she has done for us. We will each be featuring special "Thank You" card to be mailed to Kristal.
Our Design Team term is coming to an end and we just want to be sure to let Kristal know how much she has meant to us over the last 3 month. Wow, how time flies when you are having fun. If you are interested in participating, you can add your card to the link below and mail them to the address here.

If you've hopped along from  Lisa 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 Brenda's blog (I wouldn't want you to miss a THING!!)...

We have some Blog Hop CANDY for one lucky WINNER!!!
Amy Chomas has graciously donated a mini gel pen set and holder

as our grand prize and some of the ladies have also added to the pot (surprise package).

You must go to each blog and leave a comment (following would be nice also) to qualify for the grand prize.

Brenda will be picking one lucky winner on Wednesday, July 27th. So make sure to go back here and see if you won.

So here is the Thank you card I made for Kristal, I first want to say Kristal is such an awesome person! I loved being on her design team. I think she is so inspirational and just a down right kind hearted person. So Kristal thank you so much for everything you have done for me.
My girlfriend gave me some stamps images and I wasn't sure what to do with them since I can't afford Copics, so I bought some colored pencils and a blending pen and this is the 1st one that I did. I think it turned out pretty well for my 1st try.

Ok for my blog candy I am giving away is one of Kristal's Stamps set Positve Thoughts
All you have to do to win this set is be a follower and leave me a comment on this post. I will pick a winner on Monday.
Now head on over to Kathy P and check out what she has in store for you and if you get lost along the way, here is your lineup.
