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.

For my project, I'm featuring the Fall-O-Ween set!! :)
Since the theme of today's hop is "Thank-fall" (or thankful, if you prefer), I decided to make a card for a friend... I haven't had electricity for the last 32 hours, so I had to improvise with the tools that I could use (YAY for punches, trimmers, stamps, and ribbon!!)... I started with an A2 card base (4.25" x 5.5")... I embossed a 4"x5.25" piece of ivory cardstock with a Darice embossing folder (called "Thankful") and added a little chocolate chip ink to really bring out the embossing. I created the "Thankful" ticket tag by cutting a rectangle first and then punching the corners with a circle punch to make it look like a ticket.
The "for you friend" circle tag was punched using a 1.25" circle and a 1.5" circle... I added some orange 3 Girl JAM crinkle ribbon (LOVE this ribbon!! Be sure to check it out!!), some punched leaves, and two of my handmade stick pins....
Check out all the other FUN Mix-N-Match sentiments you can create with this set.....
