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.

Waltzing Mouse Tag Challenge

Hi Everyone!

I thought I would join in the challenge called Tag You're It over on the Waltzing Mouse blog.  Can you guess what the challenge is?  Yes, a tag :)  I don't have any real Christmas stamp sets from Claire's shop, so
I used this cute peppermint candy wreath stamp that came in a set of Nestie friendly stamps. (I bought the whole set just for this one stamp....Can you say sucker? ) Love it though...lol! Her stamps are fantastic and will make you do this, so consider yourself warned!
The "to, from"and :with love" are from her set of tea sentiments. The wreath is cut out and layered with my Nesties, and embellished with some green rhinestones.  Thought I would use the very trendy bakers twine and a couple of buttons to finish it off. 

I don't usually make tags, but I like how this turned out.  Now I have to think of a person who is "worthy" enough to get this one :) Do you ever do that too?  Think to yourself, "Nah, they would never appreciate it" and give that person something else?  Wow, how bad is it that I just admitted that!?

Thanks for stopping by the blog today and I hope you are having a good week!
