Happy Birthday Karen!

Happy birthday to my friend IRL and blog sister Karen of Time Crafted!  You do not want to miss the opportunity to wish her happy birthday and jump in for a chance to win her amazing blog candy...a papertrey ink gift certificate for $25 smackers!  Generous huh?  While I love Papertrey Ink and rumor has it Karen is giving extra entries for posting her news, I would rather forego my entries to just lay a little friendship love on Karen because she's a sweetie and your world is a better place with her in it!  So without further Karen!

I met Karen IRL on a mystery scrapbook retreat back in 2005.  We were roommates and had never met before but fell into an easy chatter of story telling given our many common interests (papercrafting, the 80', big hair and all, kids, graduating from high school in 93, etc).  Karen and I and several lovely ladies, including blogging sister Elise of Mamacow Creations, have formed amazing friendships that have gone above and beyond the occasional retreat to real world friendships and get-togethers.  If you are wondering if Karen is as sweet, thoughtful, intelligent and creative IRL as she appears on her blog....well the answer is emphatically Y-E-S!  I would love it if you ran over to Karen's blog to wish her a happy birthday and get to know this wonderful person who is full of spirit and heart.

Happy birthday (a little later thismonth) and happy blog birthday Karen!  Hugs, girlfriend!
