Getting Cricky" U R So Sweet" Blog Hop

Welcome to the "U R SO SWEET" Getting Cricky Blog Hop!!
I am so happy to be a part of this month's Getting Cricky Design Team Blog Hop!!  This month's hop is EXTRA SPECIAL. All week long, the Design Team has been featuring many of Kristal's stamp sets in anticipation of the hop...  If you've missed out on any of the week, be sure to check out my previous posts or click HERE and scroll down for links to all of the Design Team members' promotion week posts.
If you've joined me from Jamie's My Amusing Life, then you are in the right place!! If you just stopped in to visit my blog and want to hop along, please be sure to CLICK HERE to start at the beginning with Kristal's blog (you'll want to catch up on all the FUN!!)...

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, E. Glaser Pediatric AIDS  Foundation, Doorways Shelter for Women & Children (Domestic Violence), Wayside House for Women, Camp Good Days & Special Times, Adopt a Classroom, 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's 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.  You can learn even more about Kristal's stamps (and pick some up for yourself) by visiting her online store: K Andrew Designs.

Now for my Sweet project:

Each pair of hearts has a Dove chocolate in between - I don't think you can get much sweeter than Dove chocolate!  Unless you add the sweet stamps from three of Kristal's sets. 

All during Stamp Promotion Week, I featured projects using the
Fashionable Friends set.  For this project, I again used Fashionable Friends but also included images from two of Kristal's newest sets, It's Valentines and I Heart You.

Here is a preview of all three sets:

I agree. Dove chocolate is just about my favorite chocolate and Kristal's stamps are my favorite without a doubt! Your treat bag highlights both beautifully.
