Thank you to Kristal blog hop! Operation Owl!

Welcome to the "Operation Owl Thank You" Blog Hop!!

Today the Getting Cricky design team and some special guests are coming to you for a special blog hop "thanking" Kristal for all she has done for us. We will each be featuring special "Thank You" card to be mailed to Kristal.
If you are interested in participating, you can add your card to the link below and mail them to the address here.

We have some Blog Hop CANDY for one lucky WINNER!!!

Amy Chomas (hey that is me hehe!) has graciously donated a mini gel pen set and holder as our grand prize and some of the ladies have also added to the pot (surprise package).

So if you don't know already, Kristal is one amazing woman!  Kristal, this one's for you!  You deserve it girlie!
If you have come from Brenda Creativity is only a state of mind you are in the right place!  If you just stopped by my blog to visit today and would like to attend the blog hop, click on Brenda's link and start there!

So this card is for Kristal (hey Kristal, don't look hehe!)  I used the Chomas Creations engraving tip on clear cardstock, writing, or etching the words many thanks into the clear cardstock.  It is so hard to get a good picture of these types of projects!  I used Birthday Bash for the scallop card shape and the font.  Click on the pics to see them better.  The owl is from Give a Hoot.  All the papers are Basic Grey's Green at Heart line.

This is the back of the card. With the clear cardstock I like to add a solid color that I can stamp on or write a sentiment on.  This is the K Andrew stamp from the Positive Thoughts stamps.  This is a great stamp set for when you want to send a card with good thoughts to a friend!

So as you  may have heard I have donated the grand prize for the hop!  A Chomas Creations mini gel pen holder and your choice of 10 Chomas Creations mini gel pens!
How do you win you ask?  Simple! 
You must go to each blog and leave a comment (following would be nice also) to qualify for the grand prize.
Brenda will be picking one lucky winner on Wednesday, July 27th. So make sure to go back here and see if you won.

I am not a big card maker / scrap booker but I do like to keep up with the trends. I had no idea there was clear card stock! I am really liking your engraving tool for the Silhouette!

I like the card! I wish I could see what it said. :( (I have no doubt it is hard to photograph this project.)

Thank you for sharing!
