Karen's Birthday Blog Hop

We are all here to celebrate Karen's birthday.

Happy Birthday Karen!!!

This is where the party begins

I feel honored Karen asked me to celebrate with her and the rest of our Blog friends. Celebrating birthdays is one of life's pleasures. August is my busiest month for birthdays.

I made this card for Karen and My wish for her, is to have many many more Happy and Healthy  birthday's

For my Birthday, Karen sent me some of her crinkle ribbon, so I thought what better way to show her how much I appreciate it , then to show her, how I use it . I just love the way this came out I used True black PTI for the base. The little happy Birthday tag is from all my memories. The flower embellishment down in the  right corner is from my stash

 These party crackers are made from G-45 paper and tied with LSP (Little Scrap pieces, crinkle ribbon

What would a party cracker be, if it did not have a little goodie inside

 Each one has a little surprise, Karen I hope you like all the surprises inside.
