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.

Tea Time Birthday

Edit: I noticed the gals over at A Passion for Papertrey are having an embossing challenge, so for fun I am adding my card there!

Good Morning!

My sewing machine is very old. It's one that I inherited from my husband's grandmother and it was refurbished when I got it. Unfortunately, it now needs a new belt and some other servicing again. I'm trying to decide if it's worth it, or just get a new one. Big sigh.

In the mean time, I have a small, hand held gizmo and I used it to sew on my card for the first time this weekend. (It's a popular trend at the moment!)Nothing fancy, just a generic birthday card made for my stash and the challenge at Just Us Girls. I used this paper because it was left over from a previous project, and luckily I had another scrap to use for paper piecing the tea pot image.
Hmmm... I think I'll make some tea...
Have a great day!

Details: Stamps: PTI, Paper: Cosmo Cricket, Unknown source, Ink: Versafine, Nestabilities, Punches: Stampin' Up, Ribbon from my supplies.

Lovely card! I really like the bright, cheery colors.

How did you like the hand held sewing gizmo? I am thinking about getting one. Right now everything on my cards is faux.

I could use a cuppa my self. Have a great afternoon.
