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.

Sip and Relax

Good Evening Everyone! I'm participating in the monthly blog hop at Papertrey Ink. The theme was to create something inspired by the design team here, and I have a project inspired by Nichole Heady. Here is her Trifold Teabag Card, and you can find her instructions here on her blog.





I made mine for my best friend's mom who celebrated a milestone birthday yesterday. When I was in high school, this lovely lady worked in the fine china section of a department store, and to this day, she keeps in touch with her old co workers. Many of the get togethers are over tea...This turned out to be the most appropriate set of stamps and project to celebrate this happy occasion. Thanks Nichole!
I used the Birthday Basics set for the inside sentiment...



And I loved using two sided paper for this project...Made the finished project complete without a lot of doing on my part. Gotta love easy!


Thanks for hopping by!

Hi Karin
Really love your latest make.It's really great to try something new in crafting.
My friend is bringing me some crafting goodies from Texas at the weekend when he comes home to visit his parents.
He's even bought me some bunches but he did have to ring me to check what he was buying.
Can't wait.
Take care
LOL Mandy
