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.

The Challenge is Books

Hi Everyone!

Have you had a chance to participate in the "Books" challenge at the new Amber Ink Challenge blog???

My book club is starting up again this month, so I have had bookmarks on the brain. I made this one in a previous post.   Here are a couple more for the challenge :)

For this bookmark I used a piece of Snails and Pails iPaper and punched out the little cutie pie worms.  I then made the bookworm sentiment myself on the computer and finished it off with some dots and squiggles that I added free hand.  Doesn't get any easier that that. 

For the second one, I used the little puffer fish from the set Can I Keep Him along with some matching iPaper.  I love the bright fun colors.

And I couldn't resist adding a corny pun...
It's ok, groan if you want :)  (Check out the little orange fish on the paper...LOVE!)

That's all for me today, if you live in the U.S.A, have a great long Labor Day weekend.  We have plans to squeeze out every last bit of summer fun that we can.

Other challenges this project is linked to are as follows:
Fab n Funky-Material (Ribbon)
Sisterhood of Crafters-Anything but a Card
A Crafty Little Place-Anything Goes
Creative Card Crew-Back to School
Incy Wincy-Back to School
Paper Players-Anything Goes

Details not listed above-Paper:The Paper Company, Markers: Copic, Punches: Stampin' Up, ribbon from my supplies.

Hey Karin,
What nice bookmarks. I love the one with the fish.
I think I will make one too for my granddaughter. She devours books. She's beginning her second year as interpreter in Dutch, English, Chinese and Spanish. An "American Karin" idea for a Belgium Jennifer.
Have a nice day!

Aww these are so sweet! i <3 them. I guess I'm enough of a cheese puff to think the second sentiment is genius, not even a little bit groan worthy. I love seeing this set used in such creative ways!
