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.

Bon Voyage

Hi Everyone,

I made this card for someone who recently vacationed in Hawaii.  I knew I wanted to give them a send off, but I didn't have any stamps in my supplies that fit the travel theme.  I was desperate and cheap, so luckily I remembered that I Brake for Digis had this airplane in their freebie section.  Woo-Hoo! It's free for everyone, so pop by and grab it.  You never know when you made need to make a travel themed something :)

I went with tropical paper, to give it the Hawaiian look, and the sentiment is computer generated.  I wish the chalk that I added to the image panel showed up more in the photo.  The blue stood out well in real life.  Oh well.

That is not cheap at all, Karin, rather it is creative and intelligent. Love your image and the ribbon and the papers.
