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.

Valentine Treats

Hi and Happy Thursday!

These are some Valentine's Day treats I was working on a while ago. Last year sometime, I purchased packs of tiny note cards from the dollar store just for the envelopes. Yes, a true card maker am I. I tossed the pre-made (another word for ugly) mini cards that came in the package and started on some minis of my own.

The new little set from PTI was perfect for this craft. I chose the fish image and the sweet sentiment that paired with it. I decided to add the ribbon on the Nestie cut out to add texture and mimic the fishes tail on the image stamp...


and the mailbox was made by covering a couple of Hershey Nuggets with a piece of patterned paper. I shaped the flap by tracing around the two stacked nuggets and the flag was made free hand and glued on with a rhinestone accent.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you like the treats you saw...Here are the challenges that my projects are being linked to:

Cute card Karin and UBER SMART with the nuggets!!!!

I love your opening about the spelling of your name. My husband is German and his parents had not been in America very long when he came so they tried to make him American by spelling his name Curt vs Kurt ...... every piece of mail we get reads Kurt :)
