YNS 'Happy Birthday Karen' Hop!

Today is a very special day as it's the Your Next Stamp boss-lady's birthday!! 


Karen is one of the sweetest, kindest, loyal. supportive and compassionate people I know, and I am honoured to call her my friend.  I am so thankful that I stumbled across YNS back in August 2009 when it was just starting out and applied for a position on the DT.  I crossed everything, but didn't think I stood any chance, so imagine my shock and delight when I found out I'd been chosen!!!  To say I was ecstatic is an understatement!!  And now, over a year on, I still feel that same excitement and elation about being on the YNS DT and working with Karen! 

Karen, you are, quite simply.... amazing, and I wish you the most fan-ta-bu-lous birthday ever!  I am so thankful that you invited me onto your DT and I am even more thankful for our friendship.  Thank you for being you!  And thank you for understanding my donut brain....ROFL!!!

Sooooo.... as today is special, I thought it would be a nice for the YNS design team to hold a little hop in honour of Karen's birthday!  (This is just for fun so no prizes!)  Myself and my teamies are showcasing some YNS birthday goodness on each of our blogs, so we invite you to hop around with us, and then hop on over to Karen's blog and leave her some birthday love! :o)

Here is the blog hop order in case you get lost...
