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.

Take a Little Time...

Hi All!

My post is a quickie today.  I wanted to play along with the current sketch challenge at EBTKS, because it looked so easy.  Ha.  I was making it way too complicated for myself.  (I trashed at least four cards before I made this one...lol.)  I mean, look how simple it is, right?


Then I remembered I made a bunch of embellishments (I used one on this card here) and I thought they would be perfect for this sketch.
  Once I decided on that, I used a the sentiment Take Time from Scrolls Work for the outside. I thought I would finish the inside to match the outside flower embellishment, so I used the stamp called Dot Flowers, and the Happy Birthday is from Personal Holidays.

 So even though this took me about ten minutes, it really took three hours. Stamping can be the craziest hobby!

Thanks for the visit...Hope you're having a good week so far!

Details not mentioned above-Paper: The Paper Company, Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, Ink: Versafine, Punches: Marvy, Stampin' Up, Prima flowers and brad from my supplies.
