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.

Mane Man

Hi Everyone,

It's time for another challenge at the Hambo Hoedown!  If you played along last week, you were entitled to receive this Lion digi for free, but if you didn't, it is available for purchase at Hambo Stamps. However, you are welcome to play along using any Hambo Stamp.

The challenge this week is to make a masculine card and use stripes.

Was I successful?  I think so, even though I felt like I should limit my embellishments since this was for the dudes...You know I love me a little sparkle....Still...

I was able to add Glossy Effects on the shades :)


Here is the Clean and Simple sketch that inspired my layout.


Make sure you drop by the Hambo Hoedown to see some exciting info that is being announced today...You don't want to be the last to know!!

Great masculine card! I am like you, when I make masculine cards, I really limit the embellishments. The glossy effects on the glasses is the perfect touch!
