My name, Karin, was pretty common when I was growing up...just not the spelling. Unless you are of German heritage like I am. So, I have spent my entire life answering the question, "What is your name"?... With, "Karin...with an "i"! Who knew it would come in handy all these years later when I went to name my blog.

Double Challenge Post

Hi Everyone!

My card today fulfills the requirements for two challenges... The Cinema Saturday Challenge was the movie School of Rock and the requirement was to use cork in the creation.
The second is the Mojo Monday challenge and this is the sketch to follow...

And finally, my card! I decided to use the cork in the traditional sense...as a cork board. The sentiment is adhered on and accented with a metal sticker, meant to imitate a tack. The corner is curled up to give the card a grunge look. The white back ground was sent through my "Bug" for texture and like I said, the layout is from this weeks Mojo Challenge.

I never know how much to write on this blog about personal stuff. Do people care that much about my life...or do they just want to see the cards??? Well, if you just want paper craft info that's it, you can stop reading and go to the next blog.

This week is a "Stay-cation" week at our house so I've been busy doing fun stuff. (Baseball game, Outlet mall, Farmers Market, bonfire w/toasted marshmellows, sushi for dinner....Well, stuff I consider fun... :D )I'm not sure how much time I will have to post things this week. I do start my ladies Bible study today, and I made something cute for everyone in the group. That I can show you tomorrow, but after that...well, I guess I'll just wing it! I'm trying to squeeze every last drop out of summer!

Once again, I appreciate everyone that stops by and your comments always make the day a little brighter...

Happy Crafting!

Great card, Karin! Enjoy your staycation - they're sometimes the nicest of all vacations because you can be productive and yet rest =)

I struggled with that layout, but I see you had no troubles! Awesome job!
