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.

Halloween Witch

Hey Everyone!

I was so thrilled to receive this fantastic witch stamp (her name is Monique...How posh is that?)  from Scrolls Work and the minute I stamped her, I knew she would make a fabulous card.  I love how elegant she looks riding on her broom...Such an original stamp, it's not something I've seen elsewhere.  Love!

I knew I couldn't make an ordinary orange and black Halloween card for her, so I went fancy schmancy instead :)  The patterned paper came like that, so I did nothing to make it look that good.  Pretty sneaky, huh?
The moon was sponged in yellow ink and I added some soft, subtle clouds with some grey chalk.
I tried to capture the fact that I embossed her as well.  The sentiment is from the stamp Holidays.

Thanks for flying by today and stop by Scrolls Work to check out Monique !
