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.

Cool Pig

Hi Everyone,

A couple of weeks ago I played along with a sketch challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers. I decided to use some of my Hambo Stamps for the making of it, so I thought I would show off the card for that on the old
 blog-o today. 

I used my Cool Pig stamp (I love his grin!) and paired it with the sentiment (Stay Cool) that I used on my Popsicle card last week. I also learned how to make my own fabric Yo-Yo's, so I used that for my embellishment on this card. 

Have you been to the Hambo Stamps store recently? They have a big sale going on right now, and it's the perfect time to stock up on your wish list items for 25% off!

Also, there is a new challenge starting today at the Hambo Hoedown, and it's a girlie theme this week. Time to get out those flowers and lace :) Please stop by and check out the great cards from the Bacon Bits and be inspired to play along!

Have a great day!

Challenges for this card:
Partytime Tuesdays-Anything Goes

Details not listed above-Paper: The Paper Company, Colorbok, Ink: Momento, Markers: Copic, Fabric and button: JoAnn's, Punch: McGill
