Karing For Karen!!!




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 


Stamps: GKD Stately Flowers 3
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Copics: R85, R83, R81, R37, YG95
Paper: GKD Pure Luxury White, Green Apple, Innocent Pink; Petals & Wings dp

I wanted to send Karen some PINK flowers from me.....with some bling and sparkle too!!!  I used Melanie's beautiful Stately Flowers 3 and the soft and pretty Petals & Wings designer paper designed by Gina that match Pure Luxury Innocent Pink and Green Apple.  Some pearls and just a touch of Stickles for the flower centers.  

Here are some more wonderful and special Kards for Karen made with love!
