Karing for Karen Blog Hop!

Hey Ya'll!!

Welcome to a special blog hop we are calling, Karing for Karen!! A hop for a very special friend of ours, Karen Knegten. 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

c/o R.S.V.P. Rental Services

350 W. Northwest Highway

Barrington IL 60010

This is my card I will be sending out:

This was a super quick card to make. I just stamped the image with white ink and then carefully colored in the flowers with copics because the ink wasnt one to use with copics. Used a bit of vellum and a bow and a button, and all done! Ok, here is the list of links to hop on to to help inspire you!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope we have inspired you to make a card AND most important to SEND IT IN! I know Karen and her family need lots of encouragement...anytime you have a lengthy hospital stay it is so taxing on the soul...even when you arent the sick person!

Have a wonderful day! May the Fourth be with you! :D

Simple, but extremely beautiful. Nicely done. I was getting a bit intimidated by all the card knowledge, and you go and show how even with all that knowledge, you can still go with simplicity and make a stunning image. Thank you. I also noticed, that you did the inside too. Nice touch. Laura
