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.

One in a Buzzillion

Hi Everyone!

It's time for another challenge at the Hambo Hoedown.  While I didn't use the digi that participants receive for playing along each week, I did choose some of my rubber stamps to play along.  Why not join in the fun?  The theme this week is LOTS OF GOLD.

I used this charming Tiny Bee (#3114),  stamped a bunch of times to make this card.  Isn't it just the sweetest little thing?  I singled one out to color, so that it would coordinate with the sentiment. (Buzzillion #1522)

And of course I have to show you the Stickles and gold gel pen I used on him to make him stand out!


I hope you have the chance to play along at the Hambo Hoedown this week.  Who knows,  you may even win a chance to be a Guest Designer!

One more thing before you go, mark your calender for our April Fools Blog Hop.  When is that? On April 1st of course!  We will be bringing you lots of smiles and laughter, along with a prize for a random hopper, so you won't want to miss this!

Thanks for visiting!

Your card made me smile! The embossed background is perfect for the theme of your card, and I really like that you coloured only one bee, giving him importance to go along with the verse.
