Introducing...



Karen is not only an amazing designer but she's also a wonderful story teller!
She begins nearly every blog post with an anecdote that delights her readers.
We love her beautiful graphic style and know you will too!

Here is a little more about
Karen
The Bald Dragonfly

I'm a graphic designer by trade, wife, mama to two energetic, young boys and always a crafter at heart. I like to expand my boundaries by experimenting and showcasing the capabilities of each stamp set that I pick up. I'm passionate about composition and color and am an advocate of clean design in my creations. Friday in general was a great day to begin with and now it has become even better that I have the title of being a "Girl Friday" at Cas-ual Fridays Challenge doing what I love...making clean and simple cards to inspire lots of crafters!

Here is just a small sample of Karen's work.
I love how she incorporated all these wonderful layers and still kept it CAS!

And this is just pure textural delight!


Please leave some love here for Karen and be sure to visit her blog to see more of her fabulous work.

We'll be back soon to introduce our next Girl Friday!
