Stamp TV CSS Blog Hop 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.

Karen,  I hope you are having a speedy recovery and growing stronger every day!  There will be bumps in the road, but you will overcome the obstacles.  We all miss you and are praying for you.

I used Gina K's Many Wishes and Botanicals.  Added Spellbinders Lacy Border, some Baker's twine, Gina K ribbon and a Sizzix flourish.  The script and flowers were stamped on Core'dinations cs, tore the edge then inked around the edges.

Karen I hope you have a speedy recovery.
