Happy Birthday Karen!

 My friend Karen (or KI as I call her), go back about 14 years now... Wow!  Has it been that long since I moved to Hilo???  Anyway, we met at work and developed a friendship centered around our love of crafting.  I got her hooked on stamping and now she has her own blog... Check it out here...

Yes, as usual, I'm very late in getting my b-day gifts out. I think its partially because I want to get a gift they'll like or take so much time making their present, that I end up missing their actual b-day. 

Since I got my hands on those new Sizzix flip it dies, I thought it would be a fun and easy card to make.

Love these Doodlebug papers!  Added in another image from Sister Stamps that will be making her debut in July.... She keeps popping up on my blog!  I can't help using her!

And I made this waterfall mini album while hanging out with some friends in Honolulu.  Finished it up by adding the butterfly by Memory Box dies (my new fave) and flowers by Wild Orchid Crafts and All Natural Accents.  This paper line is one of my new favorites by Bo Bunny!

Here's the inside.  Left everything blank so Karen could fill the pages with whatever she wanted to.

This shot shows how the waterfall mechanism works.

Happy Belated Birthday Karen... Hope you like the gift and find it useful!  That's it for now!  So totally busy right now its not even funny! Hope to work on more craft projects soon that I can share-  its hard since sometimes the things I'm working on is for upcoming releases and I can't necessairly share them with you now.. But all I can say is that we have some fun things planned for our next release, which is scheduled for July 1st.  Stay tuned for more info!

Hi Jenny,
Thanks again for the cool cards. I TOTALLY LOVE 'em. Been staring at them and admiring all your hard work. Can't tell you how happy I am that you introduced me to stamping. It opened up a whole new world of FUN!!! Hugs, ki
