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.

Popping By to say "Hi"!

Hi Everyone!

I'm so glad it's Friday today...I love the weekend, but it's going to be super cold in Cleveland. For once however, I don't care. Tomorrow night I have friends coming over for dinner and old movies, and I couldn't be happier about not going outside :)  Should we watch, "It Happened One Night, or The Philadelphia Story"?  Either way it's a win win;)

Well, a couple more cards before this week comes to an end.  I made another card using the new Mod Kitch Kitch set from Amber Ink.  I went plain and graphic with this card and I love the black and Turquoise color combo for this too.
The sentiment is from the companion set "Say it Like it's 1959"

This next card is in honor of Amber's Birthday...It's a big one, and they are celebrating at the Amber Ink Blog today... Woo-Hoo :)

I used the image of the group of presents from the Tis the Season set and made a Flip Flop card. 

Here you can kind of see the the way it folds.  For instructions, just click here.

And a shot of the little cake I added to the inside.  It's from the Hostess with the Mostess set.

Once again, hope your birthday is the happiest of happys Amber.  And to all of you, my fab blog friends,  "Thanks for popping by to say hi"!

Details not listed above-Paper: The Paper Company, Basic Grey, Ink: Versafine Black Onyx, Markers: Copic, Ribbon and pearls from my supplies.

WOW! First, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the toaster card. Great graphic design. Total awesomeness!

The birthday card is also lovely. Cool folds. I have to try that some day. Wonderful papers. Your coloring on the gifts is super good. Love the pearl accents.

Stay warm this week end.

Ahhhh shucks. Continuing with the Amber birthday theme, I'd say "It Happened One Night" (heehee) and SOOOO long ago - dang that is an OLD,OLD classic. I can kinda already tell that you designed this stamp set. It fits you well my friend. Beautiful cards, both of them - the colors, the folds, the craftsmanship and the sentiment. Have a fun weekend.

Oh Karin! I've never seen either of these and now I think I need to see them both =) They look so good! These cards are ink-credible...just like you. You and Amber sure made magic with those sets and your birthday card is phenomenal! The colors you've used on each are fab, but that turquoise combo realy makes my day =)
