Getting Cricky Blog Hop Preview 2 and First Tuesday Teasers installment!

Gooooooooooooooooooooooooooood Morninggggggggggggggggggggggggg!

This is my LAST Tuesday of work before summer vacation.  I go until Monday so I am really counting the days now!  More time for crafting is coming soon WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO HOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.  My other K Andrew Getting Cricky stamps will be arriving just in time ;)  I am anxiously waiting for them!

Friday night is our big night for releasing the stamps.  I am so excited for you to see everything Kristal has in store!  Are you joining us on the UStream show?!

Anyone who comments on all 5 of my Blog Hop preview posts this week is eligible to receive one of her stamp sets FREE from me on Saturday!  Yep, blog candy- sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet. Some of the other DT members are giving away blog candy too so make sure you check them out too!

Here is a tag I made for my son's teacher's gift.  She has the BEST attitude.  She has made such an impact on my son's life with her attitude.  I have the Positive Thoughts stamps.  I was showing them to my 10 year old and asking him to pick the one he wanted for her tag.  He took some time and was in deep thought.  Then he says to me "ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww.  Can't you find something that doesn't tell her how much I like her?!"  These stamps obviously show someone you care! ;)  So, if you want to show someone you NEED these, just ask my son!

You know what I found out today?!  You can emboss with these stamps.  That is not something I can usually do with sentiments.  I stamped this with my VersaMark pad and then sprinkled embossing powder on it and heated it up.  It went great!  It worked first try!!! WOOO HOOO.

As promised, every Tuesday I will be revealing a free blog candy item in my final prize package for when I reach 300 followers by August.  I will show a project using the items and you will comment on the project guessing which item on the project is part of the prize package.  Then on Fabulous Fan Friday I will tell you which item it was!  Make sure to comment on the post with what you think the freebie is because you never know when I may have an extra to ship out ;).


  1. Great tag! I like that impressions folder and the flowers are so pretty. I think the freebie will be the flowers. Thanks for sharing. :)

    Hmmm... So many elements to guess from... I'm going to say... The neat embossing folder you used!! That's not one that I've seen before, so I'm hoping that's it!! :)

  6. Ummmm...I guess the freebie is the flower. You are one good egg! Thanks for being a great blogger and giving us so many good ideas.

  7. Love your tag! The heat embossing on the sentiment really makes it pop. And I love the embossing folder you used.

    I am going to guess that the freebie item is the buttons.


    I love that you type/post a lot like I do. I thought I was the only one who stretched my words out so that my readers could gain a better perspective on my actual enthusiasm when drafting up the post!!! LOL
    I love what you did with the embossing...it looks so pretty, clean, and crisp!
    Great Job!!!

  9. Love this tag! That story about your son is just too cute :) I am playing cathup as I have visited Kristal all week, but have not had a chance to hop to the DT blogs. So i consider myself extra lucky to have hopped to see you. Not just for the extra chances to win Kristals's fabulous stamps AND the Tuesday TEaser, but also because I am getting amazing inspiration from your blog as usual! My guess for the TT is the flowers - at least I hope so - they are gorgeous!
