Let's Get Cricky Blog Hop

Welcome to the "Let's Get Cricky" Blog Hop!!

This month's hop is in support our fallen HEROES...  We will each be featuring special "Thank You" cards to be delivered during the "Run for the Fallen" in Maine...
"Run for the Fallen Maine is an organization dedicated to keeping alive the memory of our military heroes that gave their lives to protect our freedom since September 11, 2001.

On Sunday August 21, 2011 the 4th run to honor our heroes will be held. This is a 65 kilometer event with each kilometer being dedicated to the memory of one of our heroes that lived in Maine, had family from Maine or had some ties to our home State."
One of our Design Team Sisters, Rebecca of The Crafting Misfit, will be hand-delivering these cards during this very special event...  If you would like to help support this cause, we invite YOU to join us in making a card or two to say "THANKS"...  You can find the address to mail your cards by clicking HERE.  The organization is also accepting donations for the event.  You can find more information about donating by clicking HERE...

If you've hopped along from Amy from Love To Crop 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 K Andrew's blog (I wouldn't want you to miss a THING!!)...

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, Doorways Shelter for Women & Children (Domestic Violence), 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 Designs 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.

I am featuring the "Freedom Isn't Free" Stamp Art Set for tonight's hop.  $1 from the sale of each "Freedom Isn't Free" stamp set is donated to Intrepid Fallen Heroes -- a non-profiit organization that provides rehabilitative services to US military members who are severely disfigured from combat.

I made this adorable Thank you card to donate:




I have some Blog Hop CANDY for one lucky WINNER!! How about a K.Andrew Stamp set Food For Thought- WOOHOO. To be in the running to win this stamp set, you must be a follower and leave me a comment on this post. I will take comment until Sunday night and will draw a winner Monday.
Now you can hop on over to your next stop:Becky

Our special Guest Designer for this month's hop is Amy Chomas!!  Amy is the creator and designer of Chomas Creations.  Her family makes her products right here in the USA, and they ship each package out themselves.  Amy's mini gel pens and gel pen holders are the perfect accessory for any Cricut or Silhouette owner!!  She also features a mini marker holder and embossing kit that will take your crafting to new levels!!  To see more of Amy's incredible products, please click on her blinkie below:
