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.

Go For the Icing

Hi Everyone,

Last week I mentioned that I worked on my stash of birthday cards, well here is another one from that time I spent crafting.  I used an image of this yummy cake from the set Sweet Stuff from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff.  This time I chose to size the image small and use it as an embellishment. That's one of the best things about digital images in my opinion.

I had this sentiment that I haven't used in a while and I thought the two were a good match.  I just went ahead and took my color inspiration from my K & Company Paper that I used as a base for my card.

 

Here is a look at the entire set.


Are you interested in winning a set of Pro Markers?  I don't have any myself, so I entered the give away that Lindsay is having on her blog.  Just stop by this post to enter yourself.
Also, visit her today to grab your freebie that she always so generously provides. 

Have a great day!

I just got this on my reader and had to come by (quickly am at work :-( ). This is adorable. love how you made the digi image small in comparison to the card. I always do big and then when I go to put a card together it doesn't always work. This card is great, the paper is awesome and works great yet doesn't take away from that cute cake. Yup definitely looks good enough to eat :-)
