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.

Card Swap Cards

Hi Everyone!
This past Monday, my friend Laura organized a card making get together. Everyone designs one card and brings along enough stuff for everyone else to make one of those cards. It takes time to cut and organize everything before hand, but it's so fun when you leave with 10 different cards!
These two cards are from the group we made on Monday. I wanted to get theme posted ASAP since Halloween is on Saturday! I can't believe how quick October flew by...
This was designed by Brenda...Can you see the candy corn stamped in the background? And this one was designed by Bernadette. She's a Stampin Up demonstrator so she used one of the new sets from the Holiday Mini Catalogue...
The two outer pumpkins are up on pop dots...She also said this set comes with ovals that make cute Easter eggs. I love sets that give you multiple use options.

I will be posting the rest of the Make-n-Takes in the coming days, but until then, would you take a second and vote in the Charlie Brown poll? Rod and I watched "It's the Great Pumpkin" last night, which got us debating which special is the best. We both thought it was the Christmas one, but disagreed on which came in second. It was his idea to put it on the blog, so there it is...What do you think?

See ya all tomorrow!
Details-I know all the stamps and ink are Stampin Up...

Thanks for your sweet comments on my KSS pumpkins!! They are a lot of fun!

I just saw the new Christmas releases which will be out new week!! I think you will love them, too!!

As soon as they hit my mailbox, I'll be holed up for the weekend making samples!
