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.

Another PTI Blog Hop

Good Evening!


I decided at the last minute to join the PTI blog hop. It is always fun to see what all the fans have created with their stamps! The theme this hop is decorating everything that has to do with your card...I chose to use my new Through the Trees set. I still had it out from using it this weekend ;)


I love these colors together and the little birds look like cardinals...


Another shot of the card and envelope...


Isn't this set of stamps perfect for this time of year???!


The inside...


This set came with the little tree, which I thought would be perfect for the back of my card and the other stamp is from my stash of stuff. Not only do all the stamps coordinate, but using this limited color palette also ties it together.

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Hopping!

Details- Stamps: PTI, MSE, Ink: Stampin' Up, Paper: JoAnn's and unknown source, Punches: Martha Stewart, EK Success, ribbon from my supplies.
