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.

Shades of Purple

Hi Everyone,
I didn't think I would be making many cards this week, but instead of watching TV last night, I managed to squeak one out...The best part of all this? It fits 2 challenges and it's going in the mail for a thank you today! Yippee! I am always thrilled when something leaves my home after being made.
I used the Mojo Monday sketch for the layout and chose a monochromatic color scheme to fit the challenge over on Jessica's blog, Encourage Joy.I have brads in 3 different colors of purple, yet all of them were slightly off color-wise when it came to using them here. So, instead I used my Crop-O-Dial and punched out matching circles using the biggest hole, and glued them on with my 2 Way Glue Pen. The image itself was stamped twice, once in Stampin Up's Perfect Plum and second in Elegant Eggplant. A cool little shadow technique. Certainly not new, but I forget about doing it sometimes...

Thanks bunches for the drop by today...See ya on the Internet!
Details not listed above-Stamps: Stampin Up, Paper: Stampin Up, Joann's and an unknown source, Nesties, ribbon from my supplies.
