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.

Scary Pumpkins

Edit to add: There is a 40% off sale at Lindsay's Stamp Stuff today only!

Hi Friends!

Today is Lindsay's Stamp Stuff day on the ole blog-o, and my card was made using an image from her set Cute Halloween.  I must confess, I made this card back in the winter.  I was just bored and wanted to make something "just because".  If you make a Halloween card in the middle of February, it's definitely a just
 for the fun of crafting kind of thing...lol! 

Anyway, Rod has been taking some vacation days last week and this, so it was great to have something new  to post, without actually making anything...Love it when stuff works out like that. 
I like it that this image of the pumpkins have faces that are carved.  It let me color the the eyes yellow, so that it looks like light shining through them. I also roughed up the edges of my papers, I guess I was trying to add to the whole scary, halloween-y feel.

Here is a look at the entire set:


Well, that's it for me folks.  With Rod off of work, I have to make it quick, but be sure to check out Lindsay's blog (You can always count on a freebie from her!) and the rest of the design team too!


It's probably too early to say Happy Halloween, so just have a nice day. Thanks for the visit!

Details not listed above-Paper: The Paper Company, Reminisce, Markers: Copic, Bic Mark it, Ribbon from my supplies.

Karin this is a fabulous Halloween card! The pumpkin paper is really cute.

I have to tell you something. I was leafing thru some card kits that I have from several swaps and I found one from you! I can't remember now which one it is, but I looked at the name and said to myself "hey, I know that person!" LOL
