Getting Cricky Blog Hop

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

One of our DT Sisters, Rebecca of The Crafting Misfit, will be hand-delivering these cards during a special event that will be held on August 21st (in honor of our Heroes). If you would like to help support this cause, we invite YOU to join us in making a card or two to say Thank You.  ** 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

You should be hopping over from our Crafting Misfit, Rebecca. If not you can start at the beginning with Kristal, but since I am the last stop you can begin with me and then loop around.


Today I am featuring the Amazing You set (benefiting Doorways for Women and Families) from KAndrew Designs. To be honest I was a bit stumped as to what to create. I didn't know exactly how I can thank a family member of a fallen soldier or an injured soldier for everything that they do. I felt like nothing can be good enough. But I needed to let all that go and put on my thinking cap. I went for a CAS look with a nice scenery that can be relaxing. I chose this particular sentiment because our military heroes and their family are inspiring. They are showing us how to be better human beings, citizens and what they do for us is very inspirational and brave.

I hope you have enjoyed my card and join us in this special event with a card of your own.
Also, I hope you give our special guest designer Amy Chomas! a nice welcome. Amy is the creator and designer of Chomas Creations. We were fortunate enough to play with her amazing gel pens about a month ago. Like I said back then, I just love them. I'm able to create my own stamps. And if you know me, I've become a cricut lazy bone(lol) and I love to color :)

My blog candy for you today is a collection of DCWV matstacks. Ill announce my winner on Monday.
Thanks for stopping by!

Here's the lineup, just in case :)
