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.

It's a Sketch Challenge at the Hambo Hoedown

Hi Everyone,

Are you ready to Hoedown?  Yes, it's time for another challenge at the Hambo Howdown Challenge blog and this week we have a sketch challenge for you.  If you played along last week, you received your free digi, but if you missed out, just use any Hambo stamp and play along.

Here is the sketch:

My card uses this super cute Lighting Bug stamp (1416) and since I used the sentiment You are one in a Buzzillion (1522), I decided to color him to match my papers. That definitely makes him unique and one of a kind :)

To make the wings stand up, I cut a slit on either side of his neck and inserted a second pair that I colored and cut out.  I love the bit of dimension it gives the card.

Thanks for dropping by, and be sure to stop by the Hambo Hoedown to see what the other "Bacon Bits" have made to inspire you. 

And, my friendly reminder...Don't forget about our blog hop happening on April 1st!  Don't be fooled, it's going to be fun!
