Karing For Karen Knegten [with I Spy Sketch 14]


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! We 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


My friend - we are saying prayers for you!!

I pray you get better and can get back to the stamping world real soon!  We miss you tons -- 

[This card is also for the I Spy Sketch #14 challenge.  I used Papertrey's Harvest Berries and Hero Arts Feather Grass.  See the striped washi tape in the background?  That is from Target  -- awesome price; $8.00 for 16 rolls!  I bought all the colors (4)  with different patterns! -- love this stuff!]
