Special Get Well Blog Hop

 
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

Be sure to drop by all of our GKD CSS and DT members!


This card was made using one of my older GKD Stamp sets called By Your Side. Those flowers are so fun to color. I used some of the wonderful new GKD patterned paper called Petals and Wings.  The sentiment was stamped on vellum. I used a sketch from CPS.

Thanks for stopping by and Karen, we miss you! The card is in the mail!
