Karing for Karen

*****If you are looking for The Twinery/Clearsnap post....you can find it HERE!

Welcome to a special blog hop we are calling, Karing for Karen-- A hop for a very special friend of ours, Karen Knegten.  Here is a birthday card I made for her (her birthday was last week):
 
Supplies: cardstock- pure luxury white (Gina K Designs); patterned paper-Berries and Vines (Gina K Designs); branch with leaves die (Sizzix); Scarab vintage seam binding (Ribbon Carousel); stamp- Sweet Strawberries (Gina K Designs); adhesive pearls (Recollections, Michael's); baker's twine-Shore (The Twinery); stick pin- (Little Yellow Bicycle); ink-Olive (Memento Dew Drop)

If you have been around the stamping community for any length of time at all, you might have run into Karen. She is always participating in challenges, offering us wonderful inspiration with her awesome talent! About a month ago, Karen had to have surgery for two brain aneurysms. She is still in the hospital and we are having this blog to inspire more of you out there to send in some cards to Karen AND to her family that is caring for her too! So hope you feel inspired with our little hop for you today. Below you will find all of the links to all of the girls participating...these are from the CSS Alumni group and the Design Team from Gina K Designs. Enjoy and be inspired to send a card or two in!

Here is the address for sending the cards to:
Karen Knegten

That is a beautiful card, made with love! I am sure Karen and her family appreciate all that you do, and continue to do. I have also sent a couple of cards and will probably send another this weekend. What a wonderful way to show karen how much she is loved, great idea for a Blog Hop!

Beautiful card, Cammie. I'm sure Karen will appreciate it. I sent her a birthday card also but at the time I only had her Wisconsin address so I hope she gets it at some point. Now I have a new address that I can send one to this weekend.
