Introducing Caren Blankenship

I am sooooo excited to introduce my friend Caren Blankenship as my guest stamper today!!! Caren is a nurse and works at Children's Hospital in Birmingham, Alabama. She and I worked together for several years, we became friends instantly when we met. We have so much in common you would think we were related. Caren loves anything crafty and she sews, stamps, paints, and designs jewelry (all in her spare time of course). She and her husband Mike(who is a physician) have 4 grown children and 2 grandchildren. I haven't seen her is several years but we stay in touch and she usually buys my Kit of the Month and participates in my Technique Class To Go each month. I was totally surprised to get a package from her in the mail with this card, a package of soup mix from a our favorite restaurant in Birmingham, and a whole bunch of other goodies.

Okay on to the details of this lovely card, the stamp set is Happy Moments which is a Sale-a-bration set and the paper piecing on the flowers is from the Welcome Neighbor paper pad also from SAB. The card stock is Melon Mambo and Barely Banana. I was so impressed, she even did the inside of the card as well as the envelope, something I need to do more often. I'm not sure which set the sentiment came from on the inside, forgot to look that up before I sat down here to post. Again, thanks you so much Caren for the help and hope to see more of your stuff here!

Caren doesn't have a blog so I can't link you to her but you can leave her comments here, I know she would appreciate it.

I really like this card, when I saw this stamp set I thought it was one that I probably wouldn't get but you have changed my mind. Now I am off to get together a $50.00 order so I can get it! Thanks for the inspiration.
