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:
c/o R.S.V.P. Rental Services
350 W. Northwest Highway
Barrington IL 60010
I am a bit behind the power curve this am as I thought we were starting our hop this evening as most of our CSS hops do....so I am late, I had my card mostly done, just had to finish, photo and type when I discovered I was late (after a bit of very humid warm yard work - summer in Florida has begun!!)
I love this stamp from Inkadinkado - I have a bunch of blue bottles on my porch and the sun shines through them so gloriously in the morning here and I even have flowers blooming to put in them too!!! So I am sending Karen a bit of sunshine straight from my back porch today!!!
I colored them with copics and the phrase is from Gina K - even the set is called 'Sending Sunshine' :)
All for me today - going to try to get some house cleaning done and clean out my old mini van - starting to smell like old sneakers in there......
Take Care and Get well fast Karen!!!!!
