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.

Pink Ribbon

Good Morning All...

Last year I had a friend do the 3 Day. For those who have never heard of it, it is a Breast Cancer Awareness fundraiser. Teams of people raise money (and it's a lot of money, like in the thousands per team) and walk 60 miles in 3 days...quite a commitment! Not just the physical walking, but the fundraising too!



I made a pink ribbon card for her to let her know I would be thinking of her that weekend, and how impressed I was with the effort put forth by her team. That was before I began blogging, so I don't have a photo of the card.



I thought before the month of October was over, I would dust off the stamp and use it for the challenge over at Digital-Ink Co. Challenge Blog where the requirement was to use some type of material/fabric in the card.


Using a piece of lace scrap that came in a grab bag a kabillion years ago, ( Yes, not a real word, but I know you know how long ago that is!) I fashioned it into a girlie medallion. I wove a piece of thread along the top of the lace, gathered it and pulled it into a circle. So there ya have it...A public service announcement in the form of a card. My minor good deed for the day.


Have a good one!



Details- Stamps: Hampton Arts, Stampin Up, Ink: Hampton Arts, Cuttlebug embossing folder, Punches: Fiskars border punch, Stampin Up Word Window and Modern Label, Paper source is unknown.
