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.

Tons of Fun

Hi Everyone!



Welcome in the New Year with the My Grafico Challenges Design Team! We are blog hopping today and you have a chance to win this super cute Circus digital stamp set by Zenwaredesigns!



It's a Mystery Hop today, so for a chance to win, leave a comment on each designers blog and a name will be chosen at random from the Mystery Blog! Make sure you leave a comment for everyone for your chance to win...IT COULD BE YOU! How cute is this set?!

You can also win by playing along with this week's challenge. Every Wednesday we will have a new sketch and here is the first one. (We also have a challenge on Monday, go here to participate in that challenge as well!)

Here is my card based on the above sketch...I am lovin' the easel style cards, so I decided to make one for my first post.


The elephant image was colored in with pencils, a blender pen and Bic Mark-Its.



I used a computer generated sentiment for the inside.








The gemstones in the corner added just the right amount of bling to complete the card :)


Are you ready to see what else has been created? If you want to start at the beginning of the hop go to Martha's Blog ( She's the DT Coordinator) and if you are hopping along, the next stop is Tenia's Blog!


Thanks for hoppin' by, Good Luck!


Details-Stamps: Zenwaredesigns, Pencils: Koh-I-Noor, Bic Mark-its, Punches: Stampin' Up!, Nesties, gemstones, and paper from my supplies.
