Operation OWL

*Click HERE for my Getting Crikiy Hijaking Post and Simply Betty Scrap Challenge*

Welcome Scrappy Friends to Operation OWL. Today, the Getting Cricky team and some special guests, are having a Thank You hop in honor of our beloved friend and boss lady ;) Kristal.  Our term is coming to an end and we wanted to show Kristal how much she has meant to us these past few months. I know I have said it before but Kristal is really one of the kindest souls I have ever met. It is rare on this planet to have someone like her in your life so if you ever come across your own Kristal (hehe) make sure you enjoy that time together. 

 
* We are also inviting any of you that would like to create a Thank You card or project to send off to Kristal. The linky, info and address can be found on our Brenda's blog. *

Ok you should be coming over from the fabulous Amy Chomas, who generously donated a set of mini gel pens and holders. This will be one off or part of the Grand Prize, as well as some other crafting goodies that were donated by the DT gals. **Please note: In order to qualify, you must hop along to every stop and leave a comment. The hop begins with our coordinator Brenda and ends with her.**


Ok, onto my card. I decided to keep it clean. I wanted my message and sentiment to come across clearly; because I do find her to be Amazing! Ok so in my head (lol) Kristal is the cute kitty and we are the butterflies, happily fluttering around her.

I used Kates ABCs for the cricut cuts and a MS punch for some of the butterflies. The sentiment comes from the mix and match set, Amazing You (benefiting Doorways for Women and Families - an organization helping those escape and survive domestic violence). Remember that every time you purchase a set of Kristal's stamps, a $1 is donated to a specific charity. I hope you enjoyed my card and that you decide to join us in thanking Kristal. Thank You Kristal. You are an amazing strong woman who always sees the best in everyone and everything. Your happiness is infectious and I'm very happy to have met you and have you in my life :)

Now hop on over to Kathy T, our Scrapping Felkatz
Before you go, leave a comment about the card or if you have a Kristal in your life, i'd like to hear it. I will announce my random winner next week to win a card kit (ribbon, buttons, bling, paper, etc).

Thanks for stopping by!
