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.

Kitty at Rest

Hi Everyone!

I have another animal card for you today, this one was made with stamps from Scrolls Work. I couldn't help but think about the resident cat at the Algonquin Hotel in NYC the last time we stayed there.  Her name was Matilda and I imagined her when I made this card.  She looked like she secretly ran the place...lol.  

Do you know about the Algonquin Hotel?  Beautiful place.  Historic.  Home of the infamous Round Table of which Dorthy Parker was a part of.   Do you know about Dorthy Parker?  She is one of my favorite poets.  Sharp. Biting. Clever. Witty. Dark. Depressing.  And slightly mean. Still love her tho'.  I have digressed...

 This kitty is Koko and she totally looks like she's on vacation, doesn't she??

This sentiment (Tuna) is tailor made for this image...So funny!  I just love how content and satisfied she is just waiting for her treat. 

Thanks for stopping in today to see my craftiness and be sure to pop by Scrolls Work for their entire catalog of rubber stamps!

Details not listed above-Paper: The Paper Company, K & Company, Ink: Stampin' Up, Chalk: Stampin' Up, Nesties, button and twine from my supplies.

Adorable. I Do know the hotel, and I'm pretty sure I've even met the cat! I try to schedule an hour or so out of my visits into Manhattan, just to sit in the lobby, have a drink and read Forbes. It makes me feel so...take my away calgon-ish.

Thanks for the memory jog.
