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.

Three Projects

Hi Everyone!

Wow, my post today contains three totally unrelated projects...I was laughing while I was uploading the photos...They are so random.

Anyway...This card was made for the challenge at Fussy and Fancy (Movie Challenge) and Cinema Saturday where the movie was Spiderman and the challenge was to incorporate acetate. Unfortunately, this just wouldn't photograph well...Ugh! The spider is made from acetate and I added a little red ink hoping that would make him more visible. I also went over the embossed web with some white craft ink to make it stand out. Practical Scrappers has a chalk/ink challenge, so this is linked there as well.

I think I will save this card for my hubby this Halloween. Not sure there would be an occasion that this would be appropriate for other than that-LOL!I made this bookmark with a stamp from My Grafico. Unfortunately this designer is no longer with them, so I have no link to provide. This is entered at House Mouse where the challenge this week is anything but a card. This was so simple to make and I love how it turned out. I can't wait to slip it into a card to someone!


This third card is made from an image by Chi Chi Memories which is a new designer at My Grafico. I'm not Irish, but I usually make a few St. Patty's cards just for fun each year, so this is one so far. This is card is entered into challenges at Squigglefly (fun borders) and The Pink Elephant (green)
I added a little glitter to the shamrock medallion on the bottom of the card. Isn't it cute?
Thanks for the visit today :)
