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.

Silly Bird

Hi Everyone...Happy Hump Day!

This morning I'm showing off a card made with a couple more cute stamps from Hambo Stamps.

My brother in law is a huge bird fan, so I always make his birthday card with some sort of bird image or pun, and this one fits the bill.  I love the bold colors of the paper as well, not too "fru fru" for a guy.  The stamps I used are Marching Band (4219) and Miss Your Day (1016) and I know I'm using this for a birthday, but it could be for an special occasion.
 

Just so you know this too, the sentiment is one stamp that I stamped and then cut apart to fit my card.  

Don't forget there is a new challenge starting today at the Hambo Hoedown blog.  The theme is beach colors (blue, brown and tan)  and the digi part of the Hambo DT has made the CUTEST cards, so stop by the Hambo Hoedown blog to be inspired and play along!

Have a great Wednesday!

Claudia & Co-About a Boy
Paper Take Weekly-Putting on the Glitz (Gems)
Cards for Men-1 image, 2 papers, 3 embellis (3 gems on each side)
