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.

Two More Card Swap Cards

Happy Friday Everyone!

I have two more cards to share today that came from my swap. This first card is mine...I thought there might be enough Halloween/Autumn cards, so I skipped ahead to Christmas. I used a layout that I previously used here, and of course the snowman from this post here. Kinda funny reusing my own cards for inspiration! Anyway, I like the snowman so much better on this card. Why? See the shadow around him...I didn't do that on the previous card, so he just seemed to be floating out there. He is much more grounded now.

Very pleased with the with the crisp look of this card... This other Christmas card came from Beth. Everyone was so excited to make one of these Tri-Shutter cards. How delighted will someone be when they receive this in the mail this holiday season?

Crazy impressive when you open it up!

Thanks for stopping by today and visiting the Christmas holiday a little early. Are you ready for the Trick or Treat kiddies at your house? My candy is in the dish at the front door. The real trick is to not eat it all before tomorrow night. LOL.

Details for both cards-Stamps:Stampin' Up, Ink: Versafine, Stampin' Up, Paper: Unknown source, Stickles, Nesties, Ribbon and brads from my stash.

Gorgeous, Karin! Love how you grounded your adorable snowman. Works perfectly!
Those tri-shutter cards are popular and so much less taxing than they appear....this one's a beauty!
