Welcome!

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.

Fall Fun

Good Morning!

It sure is fall like around here, but we have had some sunshine the past day or so...Hurray!


I made this card for the challenge over at Digital-Ink Co. (Make a fall themed card) and One Day At A Time where we were to use something from the mail in our creation. I was saving junk for a couple of days, so sure I was going to have some great plan and be super creative, but instead I wimped out and used a picture of some grapevine pumpkins from the Crate and Barrel catalogue. I couldn't help it....they were calling to me! A bit predictable, but very festive none the less. I liked the distressed stripes from the Cuttlebug folder for a background; just adds a great texture. I had a bunch of leaf brads I purchased last year at Target that I had not used yet, so I thought they fit the theme of this card well.







Thanks for peeking in today...

Details: Stamps: Inkadinkado, Inique Boutique, Ink: Rubber Stampede, Paper: Bazzill and an unknown source, Brads: Target, and ribbon from my supplies
