Getting Cricky Food for Thought Stamp Preview

Good morning,

I am so excited to talk about the new Getting Cricky stamps. As you know I am the Getting Cricky DT-Coordinator so I have seen these stamp previews for awhile already. I am sitting on pins and needles to get them into my hot little hands. Each day I will feature one of her new sets. She has them all on her blog, but I will have a giveway at the end of this post.

Today I am showing off her Food For Thought sentiment set. These are available for preorder on her site here. She will also be giving free shipping for ALL preorders off of her site. Remember, for every stamp set you order she is also donating $1 per set to a charity. Food for Thought benefit is for Storefront Shelter . She did a lot of research to find out about all the charities she is donating to. This is what Storefront Shelter is about:

Taken off of Kristal's post -

Storefront Shelter is my signature charity in which homeless children are found, rescued, and reunited with their parents if possible. If not, they are found new homes and are given intervention so they do not return to the streets. There are youth and children living on the streets; it's been reported that parents will drop their child off downtown, to abandon them. The children have no idea where they are, and no idea how to return home. Children also flee from abusive environments, and live in the streets. Just thinking about if something happened to me, and my children were placed in an abusive children's home, and my children ran away..if they were living on the streets. I can't imagine what it would be like to be a young child on the streets, but I can imagine a way to help them, and this is my way.

Children are the fruits of our labor and I love all of mine and my grandchildren also.  We have always had lots of my kids' friends here and our house was always open house.  Our door was always a revolving door and they could always talk to me and tell me their problems.  I can't imagine my life without my kids or the friends they brought home and I am so proud to say that I have ordered a few of these sets, so I know that part of my money is going to help some child that is in need of finding his/her parents or a loving family.

Okay, so here is the Food for Thought set:

I can't wait to get my hands on this set for some lunch box cards to give away to some of my friends with little ones yet. I am also thinking of making Austyn a card using the sentiment "Loving you is...easy as Pie".  I think I can use each and everyone of these sentiments because they are so sweet. That is one problem I have buying sentiment stamp sets, some of them just don't pertain to me, but I am pretty confident I will be using these alot.

Okay, so now for the giveaway...since Kristal was able to get this one under the wire with the other 3 sets I will also include all the comments from this post.  I am featured a set each day for the last three days. You will get an entry of each of the things you do. I will add up all the comments left by tonight at midnight and announce the winner in the Simply Sunday challenge post and you will get to choose which stamp set you would like. Ha, no, I am not giving you a random set, you get to choose which one you want or need. So here is what you need to do:
