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.

Chill Out

Second post for today....Please scroll down :)

Hi Everyone,

With things being so crazy around here all week, I'm finally getting the chance to post this card I made for my sister-in-law.  She has a milestone birthday this weekend, and I thought this would be an awesome card, without having to reference the actual number of her new decade ;)  What woman wants her number plastered on the front of a card, right?

Just click here if you want to know more about what is going on with the image of this darling little fridge...There are many things in the works behind the scenes, so be sure to check it out ;)  This lovely gal is from the set Hope, Popcorn and Wine by Amber Ink and the card came into being when I was cleaning my little stamping area.  That's when I came across some epoxy stickers from who knows where and the idea was born.  Happy accident? Divine intervention?  I will let you decide.  I love it when stuff works out just so...

Here is a close up...Perfect for that little fridge and the partying gal!

And the inside to mark her special day :)

Hey Karin,
Between making Spaghetti sauce and doing laundry I come to admire your card. And I love it! For the moment it's not "Chill out" here. I had my grandchild on visite and we have been crafting. So it's cleaning up time for me.
Have a nice weekend and try to "Chill out" (I know, I will)
