Welcome!

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.

Hambo Hoedown Sketch Challenge

Hi Everyone!

I decided to play along with the challenge this week at the Hambo Hoedown Blog.  Won't you join us?  All you have to do is use any Hambo stamp (there are freebies too!) Here is the sketch...


This is the card I made.  It uses a couple of darling birdie stamps from Hambo called Party Chicks and Favorite Peep.  How cute are those little birdies all decked out in their party hats?!  Gosh, I just adore Hambo's artwork :)


Here is a close up of the Stickles I added to make the balloon sparkle.


Hope you can make time to join us at the Hambo Hoedown this week.

Before you go, I have a quick share for you today.  My cousin Jenn made me this adorable sock pig.  She said it was because I'm now designing for "that pig company"...lol.  So here he is, in honor of Hambo Stamps!
