Happy Birthday Kara Blog Hop

Happy Birthday Kara!

This hop's for you...




If you know Kara, of Kandrdesigns, you know that she is super talented, sweet, kind and extremely artistic. She is not afraid to get messy and her designs are always executed beautifully.  Kara was one of my first blog crushes! I always enjoyed going to her blog for inspiration and I still do! You may also be familiar with Kara's Friday Inspiration Files, like Joyce said a great source of inspiration. Over the past couple of years I have had the opportunity to get to know Kara while working on colourQ and currently The 12 Kits of Occasions!  

Joyce from cards-by-the-sea, has organized this blog hop for you Kara.  So sit back, grab a coffee, a slice of cake and enjoy going through your cards and most importantly have a very happy birthday my friend!
