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.

Hostess with the Mostess

Hi Everyone,

Today I'm posting a card made with the new Hostess with the Mostess set from Amber Ink.  When this set came out, it was a must have for me :) Man, I so wish I was her! Isn't she marvelous? I mean, she totally kicks Martha's behind to the moon.  The way I see it, even Martha wishes she was this fabulous!

With the holidays right around the corner, we are always going somewhere, so this is the perfect thank you card to have in my stash.  I was able to paper piece her apron using a bit of iPaper, which made it coordinate with the iPaper in the background.

A flower seemed like a perfect embellishment for her, nice and girly.

Thanks for the visit today...Check out this set at Amber Ink and see all of the wonderful things this wonder woman can serve up on her platter...Jello, Martini's, Shrimp Cocktail...

What a fun take on Home Girl ! You've referenced so many points like her retro dress and apron, the circle with your flower and the pose. Be a great Thanksgiving card.

Hello Karin,
I love that card. That stamp is fabulous. It seems like that the turkey is a bit heavy for such thin lady hi,hi).
