Happy Birthday Kara!

Someone special is celebrating a birthday today!!! Kara of kandrdesigns to be exact!! Thanks to Joyce, the mastermind of surprise birthday operations, several of her blogging friends have joined together for a surprise birthday hop! This little PTI number is just for you Kara!


Edit: This card was chosen for publication in the March 2014 issue of Cards!

Kara and I have crossed paths many times at the ColourQ and Papertrey Ink. I recently began following her officially instead of just lurking around her blog and stalking her LOL! I love her fresh clean designs and her fondness for Papertrey Ink. So to honor her on this very special day I put together a card full of PTI pretties!

Just look at this list of her friends who have joined together to honor this talented lady today. I hope you'll take a moment to see what they have created. And of course I hope you'll visit our guest of honor to give her birthday wishes! 



The happiest of birthday wishes and blessings to you Kara!!! 
Enjoy your hop ~Lisa
